If the one kid who's not playing was a better player, they would be playing.

I was good with going all in to try to win when they did. I think it was worth it, even without the desired result. I'd be all for a rebuild at this point but I see the logic in not alienating their young pitchers.


I'm usually as lenient as they come when it comes to line changes but that is pretty ridiculous.

If you're not cheating, you're not trying.

They need to put a time limit on these challenges. Its offside. I could tell it was offside in real time. It shouldn't take this long to figure it out.

I honestly don't remember Snoke's involvement in that. I'll have to see the movie again.

And that still doesn't explain Luke's reaction. He won't kill his father who already IS evil, but he will kill his nephew who isn't but wants to be?

I think they made it clear that Ben Solo turned because of what Luke did and not solely because of some quest to be more powerful than Darth Vader.

He didn't just turn his back on everything the Jedi believed in. He turned his back on everything we understood him to believe in, for a really stupid reason.

I agree with Luke's views on the Jedi order and what caused their downfall. I even had a feeling they were going to go in that direction. None of that explains Luke's drastic abandonment of his convictions.

I'm not exactly sure what new path they were trying to strike out on, nor why blazing a new trail necessitated tearing down everything built before it.

I get that they want to move on from the OT characters but they didn't have to murder Luke the way they did. How you go from having so much hope and optimism that you think you can turn Darth Vader to basically just giving up because some kid had bad thoughts is just asinine.

Main Leafs Hockey Talk / Re: Mitch Marner

Earlier in the year there was a debate "did we draft the right guy taking Marner? We could have had Hanifin"

Marner 4 points
Hanifin -3

Case closed.

Lets see what happens against Werenski tonight.

Werenski is out with an injury.

So clearly the Leafs made the right choice!

I didn't mind the Rey/Luke/Emo Ren stuff. That part of the movie was mostly tolerable. I also don't have issues with Rey's character or her supposed "Mary Sue" status. I think her force abilities are pretty consistent with other powerful and untrained force-sensitive characters we've seen throughout the series. I think one of the themes of the movie is that anyone can use the force and be strong with the force without being tied to some powerful force-wielding lineage. I liked the fact that her parents were nobody.

I hated Poe Dameron in this movie. Maybe it's bad writing, or maybe it's Oscar Isaac? I'd be ok if he never spoke any lines and just flew his X-Wing and did cool stuff in that. Admiral Holdo's character was dumb for nearly all of her screen time. Literally the only smart move she made involved killing herself and begged the question why she didn't just do that as part of Plan A. I can't believe they killed Ackbar to put her in charge. How they heck are they ever going to know if it's a trap now?

The Finn/what's-her-name subplot was pointless. It's like they slightly re-wrote an episode of Star Wars Rebels and crammed it into the movie just to give Finn something to do.

"The past is dead, let it go. Kill it if you have to." That's what this movie is really about. Disney saying "it's ours now, b---h". Star Wars is dead. To those of you who liked/loved the movie, I wish I saw the same movie you did.

Disappointed is the one word that sums up the movie for me. It was just really, really, meh.

Did the Leafs even have a shot on goal in the 3rd? Do they even know they're allowed to try to score again?

So, the Oilers spent 40 minutes skating around 18 pylons and failing to score on a shooter-tutor, and the Leafs get 2 points?

Yeah who didn't see that coming.

"Hey look they have a goalie who's played one game in his life! Let's play defence!"
