The streams that get posted for the Leafs in the gdt, would there be a Jay's equivalent?

Those sites that get linked there have MLB streams as well on their pages.
Thanks CtB, that's what I did after posting, I turned it on just for RR to give up a 3 run dinner, sorry.

Another helpful user sent me a link via pm. Thanks.

4-year deal for Denis Malgin with the Zurich Lions, taking him off the Leafs roster/pipeline

Thanks for ruining my Labor Day.  Another asset gone for zzzzzzilch.  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( :o
It definitely is frustrating seeing Mason Marchment at least have some depth usefulness for Florida. Malgin didn't really do anything.

As I recall it was a favor to Mason, wanted NHL opportunity and the Leafs didn't feel his skating was ready yet.

I don't even really get what the dispute is there, admittedly I'm not a neurosurgeon, but it feels to me like a team should have fairly limited input in a medical decision like this.
Teams have final say according to CBA, the spirit of the rule is to stop risky, experimental procedures.

As this surgeon puts it, the literature and science clearly show that this is not only not risky, it is optimal.

NFL'ers and MMA fighters have vastly better outcomes.

The failure rate on fusion is around 20% while artifical replacement is less than 5% and provides full mobility.

Which one of Bunting, Ritchie or Kase will Edmonton overpay next because the core 4 pumped their tires for a year or two?

Eichel's neurosurgeon made a compelling case on the latest 31 thoughts podcast.

So just to be clear, we're scrapping the criminal justice system, rehabilitation isn't valid or possible?

I think the kid is a scumbag for what he did.

The victim suffered an unconscionable wrong and if it was my daughter I'd likely want to kill him.

But why is the response here so venomous?

Toxic masculinity is disgusting and needs to be challenged and changed, most reasonable people agree with this.

If it was your son, how would you want him to deal with it?

1. Apologize.
2. Face any consequences in criminal or civil court.
3. Undergo comprehensive counseling to address any mental processes or conditioning that led him to think this behavior was acceptable.
4. Be part of the conversation publicly that helps address toxic masculinity and help ensure this happens less often to other young women.
5. Work with victims advocacy groups, in any way possible to help amplify their voice and make meaningful change.


I just don't understand why everyone needs his blood on their hands.

I say all this as a victim of abuse myself and having had a female member of my family subjected to horrific abuse too. I understand the rage first hand, but you can't live there and fixate only on the crime.

Would you, for 1.2M

How dare you.

Honestly, it has driven me from the sport. What is the point in watching any of the regular season? It is quite literally not the same game as the playoffs. The playoffs toss out the rulebook and it just dissolves into who is willing to be a bigger piece of garbage.

I tried explaining it to my friends in Scotland and they couldn't comprehend the fact that when the elite teams come together to decide a champion, its basically prison rules.

Stop and imagine that principle applied in any other sport...

Bettman needs to be done and the NHL needs a progressive commissioner in thee worst way.

The Habs are sending three deep on the forecheck a lot, quick transitions and they are there for the taking.

I'm always amazed at how late "finishing you check" gets in the postseason.  Puck already gone...better start my attempt to hit you.

It's honestly Bush league, the only pro sport that is a literal different game when it reaches the playoffs.

Can you imagine the Champions League deciding that you could slide studs up on any opponent once it reached the last 16 knockout?

It is farcical.
