Good. Tired of listening to his old man rambling. Saves me from three million eye rolls during the season when he makes some ridiculous theory while telling us how he had an onion on his belt.

He and Pratt are like the donkey and Shrek but 10X more annoying. They even have guts to defend criticisms on the air about their poor knowledge of the game. Wherever hockey analysts like Bob McKenzie goes on the air with them I always get this feeling Bob doesn't want to deal with them. If it's not cracking jokes about getting high they're talking about players banging hot chicks. I miss rintoul in the morning show.

Why would US immigration and customs be a part of a publicity stunt?

Anythings... this snippet on the Oilers was pretty funny to me

Quote:
8. Hired goons

So Connor McDavid got belted by Jake Virtanen in a rookie game over the weekend and maybe it's just a thing of this being mid-September but people have lost their minds about it.


Virtanen is now something of a folk hero to Canucks fans, and will 100 percent make the team out of camp now specifically because he hit the league's new golden boy, nice and clean.

Wow he must be good if he hit the guy! This is the same logic the Canucks are going to use when they sign the pane of glass on which McDavid broke his hand in a fight last season. And the guy he fought. I don't remember who that was but they're gonna sign him too.

Meanwhile, in Edmonton, the hit led to hysterical calls from the local media for the team to basically trade for everyone who broke double-digits in fights last season. And maybe Kaleta too, so people think if they look at McDavid the wrong way, you're gonna be scraping brain matter off the end boards the very next time he's on the ice. You gotta protect the assets, and all that.

Here's the thing: The Edmonton media has this bizarre obsession with how the team played when Wayne Gretzky was still in town — that being like 30 years ago, haha (get over it) — and all they remember is how Gretzky had guys on the ice with him specifically to sort out anyone who would dare do to him what Virtanen did to McDavid, “clean hit or not.” Has hockey changed in that time? Immeasurably. Does that matter to every Oiler fanboy in the local media who only remember the glory days and not the 25-plus years of being absolute garbage since then?

At some point it becomes incumbent on McDavid not to get knocked on his ass, is basically my point. The kid has vision for days but he didn't see that hit coming? Come on, it's not like Virtanen is a tried-and-true, physically mature NHLer. Dude turned 19 a month ago. People are gonna try to hit him like that all season.

A thing that's funny is Oilers fans spent all last summer swearing that Johnny Gaudreau was going to get his lunch handed to him the first time he crossed the blue line against some 6-foot-5, 30-year-old defenseman with a mean streak. Gaudreau, of course, is a good enough skater and vision-haver that this was not in any way a problem for him. I don't remember him getting legally manhandled too often, do you? And McDavid is a better skater and ice-seer than Gaudreau, by a pretty wide margin. So I don't know. Maybe keep your head up and avoid the situations where you can get hit like that?

Then the Oilers don't have to play Luke Gazdic every night and they might actually be good at some point in the near future.

Clearly an idiot.

Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks announced today that walk-through metal detectors (magnetometers) will be installed at all main entrances to Rogers Arena beginning on Tuesday, September 22nd vs San Jose. Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive 15-20 minutes earlier than they usually would, and even earlier if they typically arrive close to puck drop. Fans should also pack light and check their tickets for a suggested entrance that will help them enter faster.

The new safety enhancements are part of the National Hockey League’s initiative to standardize security procedures at all NHL arenas. Fans will now be asked to remove all metal objects from their pockets before passing through the metal detectors, which are similar to those used at airports, only faster without the need to screen luggage. Only in unique circumstances will a pat-down or hand-held wands be used, allowing fans to enter the arena as quickly as possible. All bags will also be subject to inspection, as per previous fan safety protocols.

These new security measures are consistent with those in effect at all other NHL venues, as well as NBA, MLB and NFL venues.

For a list of prohibited items and further information, fans are encouraged to visit Canucks.com/safety.

Leafs deal 5 prospects for Grabner. Finn, Verhaege, Gibson have some potential, but none are high-end prospects.

Well, to be fair, Grabner is a mediocre one dimensional player.

An overpaid, lazy one-dimensional player.

Only good thing for the Leafs is that it opens up some flexibility for them.

I got a little excited when I read the letters G-R-A-B thinking Grabovski was coming back, but it was just Grabner. Oh well, I suppose he can replace some of the scoring lost by moving Kessel. He has a year left so he's kind of like all the other 1 yr contract players who will try to earn a bigger contract or be shipped for picks at the deadline. Mike Hunter has had some time to assess the prospects and likely deemed all these Burkie-boys expendable.
