If you've not yet checked out Live PD, you're missing out. Friday and Saturday nights at 9:00pm on A&E. Oustanding television.

His biggest liability is that he's awful with the cap. The one thing you can't be bad at if you want to be successful in the "new NHL".

"Literally every other fanbase in the NHL would kill to have Ken Holland."
|7 weeks 4 days ago||He should have been let go||
He should have been let go several years ago. He's just well past his prime and, frankly, never has really shown he's worth keeping since before the lost season due to the lockout (i.e. when the cap came in). Yes, a Cup in that span, but it came on the coat tails of the pre-cap work. He just doesn't have the tools to compete in the cap era.

I know. You guys did a great job throughout it all. It just annoyed me that people are criticizing by saying "this was posted yesterday" when the vast majority of people who read and post here will never, ever know that.

Which job? Is it (1) the return the thread about this from yesterday that no longer exists job or (2) the delete this non-duplicate (see above) thread?

Same. One of the absolute best parts of this blog is that it is (almost always) politics free. If someone is so desperate to interject politics into every aspect of their lives that they feel compelled to bring it here, there is something truly wrong with them.

|8 weeks 4 days ago||This is a really good idea.||
This is a really good idea. Thanks for sharing this. It's such a huge problem and a fundamental issue with ensuring a successful learning environment. It is, after all, a primary component of the base of Maslow's hierarchy of needs. If kids can't have their physiological needs met, they will never feel safe, which means they'll never feel that they belong. It's so important and so many people overlook the very basics. People always ask these questions about what's important for learning and go to things like books, teachers, desks, etc, but if someone is hungry (or can't meet any of the physiological needs) those other things don't matter. Major kudos to your school and it's PTA for doing that!
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Saying that there isn't a||
Saying that there isn't a controversy surrounding this topic is just laughable. Regardless of whether you think that, there are tons of people who don't and do find it controversial and almost always there is a direct connection between a person's views on this topic and their political orientation (in both directions). That's why it isn't a topic that is ever discussed here, and shouldn't be.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Sure, ok. Whatever you say.||
Sure, ok. Whatever you say. You can pretend it's not political all you want. It is. It's controversial, whether you like it or not, and it's not the kind of thing we need to be posting about here under the (very clear) "no politics" rule.

Might want to brush up on the definition of politics. Pretty straightforward.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Science itself isn't, but||
Science itself isn't, but "preservation of (insert science topic) research" certainly is. If you think that isn't politics, I literally don't have any idea what to say. That's as political as it gets.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, this. This is a||
Yes, this. This is a fantastic organization that does great work. For anyone interested in a business career, it is excellent volunteer service that looks great on the old resume.

No politics please.

This is a great idea. I do hope it stays politics free (even implicitly).

Sometimes it just comes down to personality for. Actually, usually it does.
|10 weeks 36 min ago||And again, as stated in||
And again, as stated in another reply I posted just below this one, I'm a Red Wings fan, so (***gasp***) I entered this thread. What a crazy idea.
|10 weeks 39 min ago||No "bellyaching" in that||
No "bellyaching" in that post. Just stated a fact. I'm a fan of the Detroit teams, so it's beyond me what you'd possibly think I'm complaining about. I do, however, have compassion for the many who post and read here because they are Michigan fans, but are not fans of the Detroit teams, because they get trampled and berated constantly when they do post their threads. Very likely by people just like you.
|10 weeks 2 hours ago||And, of course, that's fine.||
And, of course, that's fine. I'm a Red Wings fan, so I did. That said, the same deference should then be afforded to fans of other teams who create posts to discuss their teams.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||It won't turn out well, but I||
It won't turn out well, but I think what a lot of you all miss is that while, yes, Detroit fans are the largest block, when you combine the fans of all of the other teams together it's a far closer overall divide. The fans of other teams just aren't a single block, so they are individually much smaller than the Detroit fan block, but collectively are quite substantial. It's that huge block of Michigan fans who aren't from Michigan and/or are fans of teams from places other than Detroit (again, a quite substantial overall block of Michigan fans) that really tire of this, and perhaps precisely because your post is exactly what happens here (it doesn't go well). As Buddha points out well, that speaks to how widespread the Michigan family is.
|10 weeks 7 hours ago||That's not as much of a||
That's not as much of a forgone conclusion as people think it is (mainly people that live in the Detroit area, it seems). There are wide swaths of the state that aren't uniformly Detroit pro sports fans, or at best they pick and choose (ie Tigers fans for baseball and Packers fans for football - I'm looking at you, Yoopers). That's what happens when you have a geographically large state that has parts that are much closer to major cities in other states than to the major city in their own state. Heck, even much of western Michigan can be fairly divided, while being only a couple hours from Detroit.
