positional defensive play and excellent stick work. it would harm trapping, interference loving trap teams. i like it.
|1 day 2 hours ago||bigger ice||
just so long as we realize bigger ice doesn't create more offense. it actually makes it harder. the more disciplined teams just clog up the middle and the increased size becomes irrelevant. notice how the trap-loving finns always do well in international competitions.

I moved to Texas (Then subsequently back to MI) and have a company managing my house in KY. They found very high quality tenants, they manage collecting and distributing rent and basically deal with all the nonsense and send me a direct deposit each month.
I pay them $100 a month regardless of whether or not there's a tenant.
Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. I hate the bastards that manage mine. They're slow to respond, don't follow up on things they promised me (which I'm an idiot and didn't get in writing), and raise the rent each year and keep the difference (I don't even know how that's legeal). But anywho, do your diligence and price shop. The place that I am using is a realtor first and a property management firm second. I would avoid that if I were you. I was lucky that the tenants they found are awesome and have actually improved the value of my home, but the managers are complete shit and I wish I could punt them off my contract with the tenants.

If you had to pick one moment/gif that completely encompassed the unworldly chemistry these three had together just look at the OT winner against ND. Connor shoots and its gets blocked but Compher picks it up and makes a blind pass knowing exactly where Motte is going to be and before ND has any idea WTF just happened its in the net and M is moving on.
They reminded me of Pavel and Hank at their peak.

its bad in that he's being paid 5M to put up less-than-darren-helm stats. That's double what he's worth. Its not the end of the world, like you said, but its still another in a long line of bad contracts to old veterans who can't hack it anymore.

|8 weeks 2 days ago||bad news on the stevie front||
he just signed an extension that hasn't even started yet. thankfully they have stopped with the "everybody has to have 2yr in GR" nonsense. Blash won 40 games multiple times in the AHL and not by mistake. he's fine. the issue is too many very average forwards, not enough scorers, terrible contracts (howard, E, franzen, richards) and 8 deep on 2nd or 3rd pair defensemen with no upper half.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||sounds like he's NHL ready for the wings.||
|8 weeks 3 days ago||theory||
O'Korn is the guy and JH is giving reps for Speight over him to hammer home ball security and constant improvement. Not hard to imagine a guy who's got a mountain of praise needing a little humility to stay hungry going into fall camp.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||dude. .||
look at the 07-08 team. they had the same scoring depth as the wings do now plus Z and Dats each almost eclipsed 100pts. no one on this team is close to that. plain and simple. either you don't watch hockey or dont understand how its changed. if you add 2 90+ pt scorers to this team we're quite assuredly a top 3 seed.
again, we have grinders we don't have scorers or defensemen.
also what you're missing about the 07-08 team is Lidstrom, Rafalski, Brad Stuart and half a hundred year old chelios. all of those guys at that time were light years ahead of players not named kronwall on this team. and rafa/nick/stuart were all better than kronner is now.
so GTFOOH they were tougher. they had more talent top to bottom.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||uhhh||
Not enough shooters is a valid complaint. They're about 5 deep on grinders. In fact we've been sending down and sitting grinders to get scorers into the lineup (AA, mantha, pullky, larkin) to complain about motivation and hitting is just nonsense. this league is predicated on speed and scoring now. you're going to fail miserably with a slow hard hitting team unless you have elite, puck suffocating defense. We do not.
They have one very good defenseman and 7 others who are "just a guy." When your D is average at best you need to score goals in bunches and most of our forwards want to pass. SHOOT. THE. PUCK.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||not likely||
The roster is the issue not blash.
Hell, Dave Lewis got 2 years with one of the best rosters in the league before they let him leave (to hire Babcock).
This roster isn't in the top half of their own division. The only coaching concern I really have is an awful powerplay. But they can't score 5 on 5 either so...

ask the kids who's decision it was. ask harbaugh the same question. I'm confident the answer is the same and that it was the kids decision but i hate the air of suspicion people have about it. I'd rather we just address it head on and not have any uncertainty.

because per B1G rules if six member insitutions participate in a sport they have to form a b1g conference. Penn State fucked it up for the rest of us.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||I just can't agree with||
I just can't agree with screwing over your league in a sport in dire need of a boost based on little more than petty pride. Its not feasible for every conference in every sport to shut them out. It just isn't going to happen. Someone will be desperate enough to make an associate deal with them.
You're not going to force Notre Dame's hand by giving them the cold shoulder. If they want to enter a mutually beneficial agreement with your conference, do it.
Telling them to piss off is only going to hurt member institutions who are looking to schedule them or get their cooperation in other sports.

No offense but there aren't many cars I'd rather take on a road trip less than a Mustang. Uncomfortable AF.
I'm only 6'2ish and medium build and I've never driven one for more than about 20 miles before my legs and back ached. Horrible seats, not enough leg room 2/10 would not bang.
