Sure it can be made by these young men that are sort of "famous"....My point is, it isn't exclusive to hockey. That is all.

I don't think anyone ever said it was. In fact the post of mine you're referring to explicitly says that saying it's particularly a problem within hockey is not saying it's exclusive to hockey.

And again, I think you need to recognize that your experiences aren't universal. What people like me and CtB are saying is that despite this sort of thing being commonplace in some environments you frequent, it's not in others and your perception of what was "okay" or accepted in society is more of a reflection of the parts of society you're familiar with than it is a grand, sweeping statement about society as a whole.

Yep, you're right.

Not a minor Leaf, but semi-minor news. Probably doesnt mind the break in game action!

I really liked Holland. It's too bad things never really worked out in the NHL.

edit: I couldn't really remember how we acquired him originally. It was Jesse Blacker (bust) and a 2nd and 7th round draft pick. Those picks ended up being used on Marcus Pettersson and Ondrej Kase. We obviously can't suggest that the Leafs would have picked the same players but interesting that Anaheim really nailed those specific picks.

Anaheim always seems to do well with picks they acquire from the Leafs - Sam Steel, Maxime Comtois, Rickard Rakell, John Gibson...we shouldn't let them have any more of our picks.

Um, why not just poach their scouting staff.

Polak's signed with a team in Europe for 20/21. What's interesting is his comments seem to suggest he wouldn't want to return to the States to participate in Dallas' playoff run. Maybe there's some translation issues there and he'll offer a correction but that's what it seems to say. There's more in the thread.

He also talked about how frustrating his season was in Dallas as he had to play in a rotation for a long period of time and it was difficult to stay motivated.
