General NHL News & Views / Re: 2019-2020 NHL Thread

Love to see the condition of the ice in late July.

I'm not sure that will be an issue. They play hockey in Arizona, California, Florida and Las Vegas with no real big issues.

They don't play NHL playoff hockey in July.  The 15 degree temperature low and 13 degree temperature high difference from May to July in Arizona is a big issue.

I think in a weird way the prequel and sequel trilogies illustrate two very different ways movies can go wrong. The prequels suffer because they're entirely the vision of one guy who didn't seem to have anyone around him adding input or telling him what worked and what didn't. The sequels, to me, are sort of the exact opposite. Made as sort of a top down corporate decision clearly trying to appeal to everyone without a singular coherent vision. As a result the prequels are demented nonsense, the sequels slickly competent but soulless and forgettable.

To some extent, I almost prefer the prequels. I don't want to watch them again but they're more fun to talk about.

It was interesting.  There is literally no breathing room in a movie that basically has nothing happening. 
Every quiet second has some silly comic relief event.  Jar Jar steps in poop.  Jar Jar trips on a droid. Jar Jar waves his hands or sticks out his tongue.  Traveling through the.  Need two "theres always a bigger fish scenes, plus more stupid Jar Jar crap".  The pod racing scene has an obnoxious commentator.  Quick cuts in the middle of the Naboo infiltration scene.  Its just non-stop.  There is no breathing room in the movie.   As you said there just wasn't something to tell George, no.  Stop adding stuff.

Ignoring that Jake Lloyd was awful (and I'm really not going to jump on a child actor) every other actor was seemingly advised to try and act monotone if they were a comic relief character. Stoic was confused with flat.

I made the mistake of showing Phantom Menace to my partner.  She had not seen any Star Wars and decided she wanted to watch them 1 through 9.  We may have hit our limit....man watching it again for the first time in a few years it is a really bad movie.

I'd just like to point out that you are all fat and your significant others smell bad.

I can't wait to have hockey back to chat with all of you.  See you soon!

Wait, why am I banned. 

I'm sorry I said stuff in private and it got out.

Sadly I think Leipsic is probably not the only hockey player who has these kind of viewpoints.

Spezza has a couple of attainable milestones that he could still hit in his career.

Currently sitting at 599 assists so only 1 away from 600.
Currently has 940 points so 60 away from 1000.  This one would take him two seasons, health and a consistent performance to reach but he was on 35 point pace this year getting 3rd/4th line minutes.

Do I think Ceci at $700k to play 3rd pair + PK minutes is a bad deal? Not necessarily. But it would almost certainly come at the expense of playing Liljegren and I'd rather give him a fair shot at that.

I agree, but I also don't mind sheltering Liljegren for longer. He made huge strides in the AHL but was still a bit of a liability in NHL minutes. Sandin is already earmarked for that role, so how many can our cap-strapped roster support at once? If Ceci wants to Ennis himself in Toronto one more time, I'm here for it; maybe spin him off at the deadline for real (barring injury) if Liljegren overtakes Ceci by then.

If you got a guy like Ceci at 700K to play on the 3rd pair, that's still a pretty solid deal.  The best part about it would be that if Liljegren took his NHL experience and developed the next step in his game, you can also have him as the 7th defenseman or bury him in another organization/the AHL if Timothy was NHL ready.

Its the previous season but this was just awesome to watch when Kane and Matthews kept going back and forth.

He's not a perennial MVP candidate but I'm not sure that his one dominant season really should have made him that kind of player.  He always struck me as a guy who is just really good but has injury troubles.  Can't stay healthy enough to be dominant all the time but also not quite that top tier player.

He's still at something like 89 points in 98 games or something like that over the last two seasons.

I'm sure a team like the Leafs pays for a disaster insurance.  Teams like Florida and some of the other teams who historically haven't paid for insurance on riskier contracts I would imagine haven't.

When nonsense like this takes place in the US, I really don't think the border from their side will be the problem:

The logistics of this are going to be a nightmare if they do try and run a league with some form of normal scheduling.  Far more so than playing in a selection group of locations.

MLB is also partnering to get antibody testing as part of a larger testing trial.  They are going to be testing families, players, trainers, pretty much everyone involved in the game.  It's pretty clear they partnered up to use it as ammunition to be able to get MLB up and running.

There really isn't a way to make an isolation league a fool proof way to get the season going forward. You would need to bring the players in.  Isolate them for 14 days and then have a closed system of people coming in or out to avoid having someone bring COVID into the hockey internment camp.  There is no way to guarantee it.

I mean I would be open to freeing up the cap hit from Kerfoot depending on how he gets used.  If he's going to be that winger on the 2nd line I don't think his salary is worth his production.  If he's playing up the middle on the 3rd line though with spot duty in the top 6 I think that is a different matter.

I'm honestly having a hard time finding how we keep Hyman on this team if next year he keeps up his scoring pace from this season.  His point production has gone up for three straight years as well as his goal scoring.   He only put up 1G against Boston last year but did it on fragments of a knee.  He isn't going to be a cheap contract if he can get a full season in the 50-60 point range that he was on pace for this year.

The shocking truth is revealed!
I was literally going to say that's 100% girl writing.

I was going to say that note looks like the writing that every single girl in Grade 5-7 had while they passed notes to each other in class.
