No mention of Steeves there?

Injured first game, didn't play again. So probably just not much to say there.

Oh...I guess that's a good reason then.

So we heard coming in that the PPC was going to split the conservative vote. Now that it's all said in done, do we think it really effected the outcome?


Popular vote:

CPC - 5.43m
LIB - 5.16m
NDP - 2.83m
BQ - 1.24m
PPC - 814K
GRN - 371K

So I'd say not much on the overall voting side, but they beat the Greens. 

The Green Party was irrelevant in this election.

Robertson with a good NZ steal (after his own sort of giveaway), to feed Steeves for the opening tally

Robertson's still doing his OHL style toe-drag moves...those kinds of moves will get his clock cleaned in the NHL, and likely benched if he were to try that stuff.

His skating posture has improved though. Dynamic without being at risk of skating his face through farts.

I'm glad to hear that. 

But that hot dog crap will not impress the doctor...the comments from Dr. Wickenheiser were telling him to slow things down and let the play catch up to him.  What he did was try low percentage "try deke out the whole defense to get a better shot" that would result in him getting blown up with AHL or NHL d-men.

I was hoping that he'd display more maturity in his game...a more pro-style game.

People are higher on Bunting than I am...I hope I'm wrong.

I have a pretty good sense of who you don't care for, but who are you high on (of the grab bag of UFA wingers and bottom pairing defensemen)?

I'm hopeful that Ritchie can be Hyman.  I'm hopeful that Kerfoot can effectively rotate in to play LW in the top 6 because I'm skeptical that Bunting is good to go there.  Mikheyev might have to rotate in there as well if Bunting can't play at Tavares/Matthews/Nylander/Marner game and mind speed.

I think Engvall is 4C in that case, and Kampf 3C.  I'm hopeful that Robertson tears up the AHL early and often and forces the Leafs' hand to give them more LW scoring threat.

I'm hopeful that Liljegren has a great camp and can play effectively in 3rd pairing situations with different partners because I'm not crazy about Dermott playing the right side.  I hope TJ can repeat last season, and that Muzzin can remain healthy.  I think Rielly has something to play for this season which might help motivate him.

I'm not really high on anyone in particular, but I remain optimistic. 

Holl sucks.

I’m finding that article either confusing or misleading. They have spent the money but just not all of it? So what’s the issue? It’s not like the funds have disappeared, they’re still there to be used.

Then again, I’m not sure I’m getting the message they are trying to convey.

There's no story here.  The fund is still there to deal with anything that comes up this fall/winter.

It's just a hit piece and that's about it.  Horvath suggesting Ford doesn't like to spend money should really check the budget deficit the government is running up this year.

It's the first time I've voted by mail, and it was really easy.

I'll do that again.

Ya, my partner did that too. My polling station is literally a block away, so I just walked.

I'm always surprised by how ghetto the polling stations are. A bunch of retirees handing out 3" pencils and a piece of old newsprint for you to vote behind a cardboard fold-out.

My wife's mom works for Elections Canada (temp contract).

Apparently it is very challenging this election because of the short period, but also because they're not allowed to use schools and libraries this time due to COVID.

So yeah, there may be polling stations in weird places this round.

Wickenheiser doesn't pull many punches there.  I like it.

(It remains funny that the 2019 election thread is being used for this election.)

Keep it open...the way things are looking, we may have another one of these next year!

This has been so much fun. I’m just worried about those 6 games left against TB. Those games are going to suck.
They’re going to complete the sweep of the Yankees and then immediately get swept by Baltimore, aren’t they?

Then beat the Rays, getting my hopes back up, and then get swept by the Twins.
