Remember that this is the same ref that got fired for admitting on a hot mic that he's going to do a make up call and got fired for it

I'm no chemist, so I could be totally wrong on this, but isn't water just water no matter where it is found in the world?

Yes and no. If it was absolutely pure, sure, but naturally sourced water has additional minerals and such in it. Those minerals can impact the consistency of the ice (not in way most of us would notice, of course).

There are often additives that are used when making the initial layers of ice to get a better density and reduce the potential for air bubbles when setting up the new ice.  I don't know that Swiss spring water honestly makes a huge difference.  I'm sure that ambient temperature in the arena, humidity levels, and how often flooring goes over top of the ice are going to have far bigger impacts on ice quality.

To be clear, he's not being serious. He rarely is.

It's crazy to think that Subban is retiring at 33. Not really a fair comparison since one is a literal freak of nature but that's 12 years younger than Chara.

Would have been cool to see him as a Leaf for a season or two, but there just really wasn't much of a fit. Even if someone like Holl was moved out.

I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.
