He definitely moves backwards relative to the goalie, but the puck is still moving towards the goal line.

I never really doubted that Doug Jones had a chance at usurping Moore.  If anything would sway it in Jones' favour, it would have had to be the African-American votes.

Certainly there are many who are still in a somewhat state of disbelief at the results, that that was even possible after 25 years of Republicans representing the state.  Jones and the Democrats should be proud that they pulled off a miracle.

By Moore being defeated, it sends a strong message that Moore types and any others tagged with sexual allegations will soon be an 'endangered species', and won't be (politically) tolerated in an election. At least, hopefully, this is a start.

But the way they sit back and let teams come at them bound to bite them in the ass on some nights .Almost doubled up on shots again. Great job Mike. Idiot.

Dude what exactly are your expectations?  They are on pace for 105 points. 

The Leafs were playing their third game in 4 nights...missing their best player...on the road...against team that had been off for 5 days.   I think you need to relax
Komarov has had just 1 game in the past 15 where his CF% was over 50%. And that was against Arizona and they're barely a NHL team. Basically ditto for Kadri, although he squeaked past 50% in one extra game by a single shot attempt. Komarov's at 38.2% in possession in his last 15 games and Kadri's at 41.6%. Kadri has 4 5-on-5 points in those games, Komarov has 0. Those are brutal numbers.

This is a crazy idea, I know, but maybe try not playing them together?

I never in a million years would have predicted the day would come that I'd happily take a Leaf loss in exchange for a Democrat senate win in Alabama, and yet here we are.

I genuinely thought this sort of thing wasn't allowed. It really looks like Gaudreau goes backwards here.
I understand Babcock wants to teach them to be able to play this way, but he's asking thoroughbreds to plough the fields.

He's asking snowmobiles to heat the house.

That's very well put.
