Media is changing so rapidly now. As a print guy, I see my client base evaporating, and the strange thing is although we have great social media, no one really wants to pay the price for it.
For a company like ESPN to cut 100 top people that is saying something.

So long as people expect to get professional content for free on the Web, it's a losing fight.

Should Crosby win the Stanley Cup, it will have been the third in his career.  Also, should Pittsburgh win it, they will have been the first team in the salary cap era to have done so.


The last back-to-back Cup winners were the Detroit Red Wings of 1997 & 1998.

Hilarious and cringe-worthy. The fruits of more than a decade of bumbling in Long Island.

Probably has more to do with what Milbury said about Subban.

I forgot how stupid Bill Watters is cause I haven't heard him in a number of years. Heard an interview he did on a podcast with Mike In Buffalo and man, his hot takes are ridiculous. Too many to break down here but in short:

Leafs can never win with Gardiner, trade him

Nylander is too soft, trade him

Babcock is the defacto GM of the main team and will only report to Shanahan

And on and on

He hasn't been proven wrong yet ;)

Also, isn't Kypreos just a younger, less hammered version?

Pretty good article looking at the Canucks vs. Leafs after Linden and Shanahan were named respective presidents.  Forgot that it was the same time (2 days apart)

The biggest difference is that the Leafs hit home runs on three consecutive top-10 picks.
