Apparently, the Hurricanes will go with 3 goalies.

I don't think it will last. They'll wait until they're sure Darling is good and then someone is going.

It's going to be Darling, isn't it?

They can't unleash McBackup and his .892 save % to the rest of the league.

Both Mrazek and Mac have save percentages under .900 so it will be interesting to see what Darling does. He def has the biggest price tag.

I think they meant most of Canada's sports teams, but yeah.

You mean because they didn't mention the CFL?

Seriously though, if the best a Sports team can do is 79% it doesn't look great for any of them.

The article mentioned "the average for all charities examined by CIC is 75 cents" so at least MLSE is a little above that. I don't know what the heck Calgary and Ottawa are doing. Oddly enough both of those teams are of course trying to get their cities to build them new arenas while boasting about how great they are with the community.

Sure, but that average would include "charities" that are effectively frauds. The really top rate charities are at 90% or better.

So it's not terrible or anything but it's certainly not a number a non-profit sector person would hold up as an achievement.

So Gourde signed 6yr extension for 5.1M. Thoughts?
