All Sports But Hockey / Huge CFL thread
« on: August 07, 2018, 06:23:47 PM »
Probably not too many CFL fans here, and I'm certainly not a big fan myself, but as a bona fide season ticket holder of the Ti-Cats (for political reasons), I was watching with interest Manziel's debut with the Als last weekend.

Wow.  I'm not sure it could have went worse.

And Hamilton sold a ton of Manziel merchandise, only to never start him, then trade him 6 games into the season.  I have to think that they just didn't see a CFL future with him at all, or else they would have moved Masoli instead for sure.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Juuuust didn't quite make it
« on: August 21, 2017, 05:26:57 PM »
Busta's #marliescrushmonday post, and certainly herman's unhealthy, and weird, obsession with Griffith got me thinking about your favourite Marlies/prospects that just couldn't cut it in the NHL no matter how much you wanted it for them.  Some of mine:

Williams
Newbury
Peelash

I would suppose there is an allure to potentially playing with McDavid.

As an outsider, this is pretty surprising.

I have no idea how he gets along with ownership, so maybe he saw this coming.

So Kadri has a hearing for the crosscheck on Glendening last night, according to tsn.ca.

Doesn't mention if it's a phone or in-person.

NHL Transactions / Oilers re-sign Talbot - 3yrs X $4.17m
« on: January 17, 2016, 01:24:32 PM »
http://www.tsn.ca/oilers-sign-g-talbot-to-three-year-extension-1.424372

He's currently at GAA 2.58 and .914 SV% over 26 games (nhl.com), and 2.18 and .926 over 83 career games.  Obviously most of it with the Rags. He's 28 years old.

Reimer has 2.03 and .934 in 20 games this season, and has career numbers of 2.51 and .915 in 195 games.  He's 27.

Anyone think Reimer gets less than this deal?
