Also, virus mutation is a f%#cking random process.  It doesn't mutate in the "bad" people.  Otherwise Trump's whitehouse would have generated the Omega mutation and we'd be dead.

I'd argue the Trump White House created an environment where viral mutation was allowed to run rampant and facilitated that process. The false and toxic machismo leading to disdain for medical expertise, mitigative measures, and vaccinations echoed across the world and validated the movement.

I think I said it in the run-up to the playoffs: Bergevin built the Canadiens on the tropes of playoff hockey: DEPTH DEPTH DEPTH big boy defense HITTING.

What actually happened was Carey Price got hot, and some of that was thanks to the Leafs giving him a lot of warm-up shots, and also John Tavares getting knocked out early and then the Leafs just taking their foot off the gas completely after 4 games as if they expected a sweep and forget they lost the first game. I do give credit for the style they played: counter punching with rush chances worked for their personnel; they just had to survive onslaughts (hi Carey).

Not the most beautiful win, but one team got straight up outclassed.

Ah look, the other shoe.

Didn’t even let him finish the term after drafting Mailloux. Head scout and Senior VP of PR as well lol

Montreal pulling the trigger before Vancouver is also hilarious

Edit: damming Molson iced him while he was recovering from COVID

Scott Mellanby resigned as MTL AGM yesterday after he was ruled out for further consideration the GM or President positions. MTL looking for a francophone GM.

Big time Niemela fan here, first to bring him up as a draft target, and very glad he is dominating the scoresheet, but this is clip is almost exactly why defenseman points (assists in particular) are meaningless. No real way to parse it from the data though.

Literally the only time people bring this player up is to dunk on the trade.

The front office recognizes this. The priority in seasons past was to get more skill (puck handling, shooting, passing) into the system. Now they are focused on acquiring and developing retrievers (Matthew Knies, Ondrej Kaše, Joey Anderson, Michael Bunting sort of).
