In any case, Yzerman has done more than enough to prove he should be the man in Detroit when Holland retires.

I'm not going to say he didn't have some luck (flipside is he had earned a shot with a non-awful franchise) but he's pretty much nailed every big decision he's needed to make and has two consecutive gold medals managing the Canadian team on his resume as well.
Yzerman is a legitimately talented GM.

My point is that while the rest of the state might be Iowa or Indiana, Chicagoland should count for enough to avoid being ranked two spots away from Alabama and just ahead of Indiana. Ignoring Chicago when you're ranking Illinois is like ranking New York based only on upstate New York.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Illinois?||
The biggest complaint is that it's like Indiana or Iowa if you take Chicago out of the equation (sounds a bit like New York, but I digress), but the two behind it are Alabama and Indiana and the two above are Wyoming and Iowa. Chicago literally counts for nothing?

I think it's almost the opposite of this, actually.
If Jay-Z tried to unironically relese a single like Big Pimpin or Money, Cash, Hoes today it would come off as disingenious and fake. Instead we're getting singles like Tom Ford because his world is made up of $7500 suits and $2000 shoes, and Empire State of Mind because he can write a retrospective from a corner office at this point.
Eminem is another good example. He couldn't seriously release another Slim Shady album even if he wanted to, but being a depressed and angry addict isn't where he's at any more, either. Now we hear 90's references and talk of not being the biggest star on the planet any more in Rap God and ending a fifteen year old storyline with his mom on Headlights.
I don't think every older rapper just loses their skills, I think it has a lot more to do with their material not being as relatable as they get older and have different lives/perspectives than before they were famous and wealthy.
I 100% agree about the "cool" part, though, not ending up dated is really tough.

I agree the Blackhawks are very talented and can get to the Wings 1997-2008 level as a franchise, but if some bad luck strikes and they have a few down years right away, nobody is going to be filming a 30 for 30 on a Blackhawks dynasty.

I would not rejoice. I've alternated between Nike Pegasus and Mizuno Wave Riders for 10+ years now, and haven't found anything that compares.
Not to mention Nike sponsors a huge chunk of Olympans/IAAF types, and they're actually training in Nike shoes.

We also have a new tweet from golf posted above indicating it's some type of video series being announced.
This is the part where I say I do not care, and the ridiculously obvious choice is to take the most money.

Would saying "While Canada does still significantly punch above its weight class getting players into the NHL, it does less than it has in the past" be a more understandable statement?
Taking Europe and the US out of it for simplicity: Canada has 37% of the world's player population and 50.3% of the NHL player population, which is a narrower gap than it used to be.

No, I'm saying that the various Europen countries tend to put about the same percentage of players into the NHL as they have overall players, while the US does less and Canada does more (but less than they have historically).
It doesn't have anything to do with overall population, it's the delta between participants and NHL players.

LeBron, with a net worth $375mm from a quick search, doesn't have Dan Gilbert money. For a little different perspective though, he is wealthier than anyone with a major party presidential nomination in at least thirty years (depending how you count the Heinz fortune) and that will almost certainly hold true again next year.
It's semantics, but IMO $375mm is clearly wealthy.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Canada (which only an idiot||
Canada (only an idiot wouldn't acknowledge its historic hegemony on NHL players, that's definitely not my point) isn't currently that outsized in its NHL contributions, especially compared to the old days.
50.3% of NHL'ers are Canadian, while about 37% of all organized hockey players are Canadian. The Europeans more or less hold serve relative to player population and it's the US that's not getting players into the league.

I know that the US has the same medal bonus for men, women, team and individual sports for the Olympics, and it's not very much compared to what an NHL or NBA player takes home (EPL, La Liga, ect in this case). It's only like $25k for a gold, and less for silver and bronze.

With the way some of these spaces are designed it's almost amazing more fans aren't seriously injured. I remember reading some hockey book or other when I was a kid detailing how a guy caught a slap shot Bobby Orr took. He woke up the next day to a black strip the size of the puck wide only to find out that he had broken several bones.
Someone taking that to the neck or the back of their head easily could have been killed, but somehow it never happened until 2002. Hopefully this woman makes it and baseball makes whatever changes needed to prevent another incident.

There's something to be said for recognizing that USA Hockey decided to take an unprecidented step and have the USA Hockey Foundation buy a large arena, put a quasi-museum in it in and employ a staff in Michigan's backyard.
Michigan, MSU, any team in a position to support USA Hockey should do it (when possible, not at an unreasonable cost). All of Michigan's non-foreign players will come up through the organization and its continued development will benefit all American hockey. Again, not saying schedule a home and home every year (or even once, really), but I do hope M will find something to do that promotes their new digs.
I'd also bet about a million lemon eating videos that the U18's continue to play Michigan (at Yost) like they have since the program started.
