This may be worth flying to Vegas for a plopping down the kid's college fund on the Buckeyes.
|4 weeks 17 hours ago||The Dean of the Engineering||
The Dean of the Engineering School at 'Bama is a self-professed football fan and has stated in the past that they "take care of their football players in the engineering program". My guess is this sentiment was not conveyed to Mr. Hand from Michigan Engineering.

The Dean of the 'Bama Engineering program has stated that they "take care" of their football players. Academics, baby, academics!

I think that Space Coyote's support of the OC against the mounting evidence (at least in the eyes of some) that all is not well in Borges world has caused the poster to muse whether Al Borges is posting under the name Space Coyote. Probable? No. Possible? Doubtful. Absolutely out of the question? Cue the Twilight Zone music.

Woody Allen had the best revision of this ol' chestnut:
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. Those who can't teach, teach gym."

Well put. Losing to THAT school is bad enough, but when your offense looks like the JV playing the varsity, it becomes unacceptable.

|1 year 26 weeks ago||There are some big names out||
There are some big names out there that keep getting mentioned that just are not going to come our way:
RICK NASH: He wants out of Columbus, where nothing is going to happen for a long time. Don't blame him--Columbus OH is no place to waste a career. However, he has a mammoth contract and is not an UFA--it will cost a king's ransom to make the deal, and it would probably be, in the long run, too expensive.
SHEA WEBER: He is the franchise in Nashville, and is only a RFA this year (UFA next year). I think Nashville will do anything to keep him--if he goes, what message does this send to your already shakey fan base? I think Weber stays put--this year and next.
SHANE DOAN: This guy has been with the Coyotes since the franchise moved to Phoenix, has a ranch there, and is apparantly happy where he is. I would be surprised if he doesn't finish his career in Phoenix.
Now for the blue-chip possibilities:
RYAN SUTER: The word is Nashville has made him a big offer, but he has not moved on it. My guess he wants to stick his toe in the free agency pond and test the waters, where Ken Holland will be waiting with Mr. I's checkbook. I think he is our best bet to sign.
ZACK PARISE: This deep playoff run of NJ does not help, but the financial instability of the Devils does. There have been longstanding stories about Suter and Parise wanting to play together, so this could be an interesting angle to pursue. The Rangers now have Marian Gaborik with an injury that requites surgery and may keep him out six months, so they are supposedly now in play for Parise's services. To make matters worse, Parise's dad, JP Parise--a former NHL player--has recently said that he thinks the Rangers would be a good fit for Zack. There is, of course, the very real possibility that Parise just resigns with the Devils. Would be the best offensive pick-up, but there is no clear path to signing him as of now.
ALEXANDER SEMIN: He and the Caps are parting company, so he will be available come July 1st. Prolific scorer when he wants to engage, but has a history of being the "lazy Russian" who does not always show up to every game ready to give 100%. Speculation is he could be paired with Datsyuk, who would "educate" him as to the expected Red Wings work ethic. If the Wings wanted to take a chance on him (and if Parise is not available), this could be a real option, and my guess is he is signable.

Disappointing, for sure, but is anyone REALLY shocked? The better team won, and this may just force Ken Holland's hand come July 1.

I'm not so sure about Tuesday...if Rinne stands on his head again (and he does that often against Detroit) we are just banging our heads against a wall. The shots in this game were 41-19, and we lost. A hot goalie is a dangerous thing in hockey. UM v. Air Force, anyone?

I'm not going to debate the morality of this, but for those who just arrived in town by falling off the turnip truck, it happens.
Detroit and Nashville are numerically equal--same number of points. If that tells you these teams are equally matched at this point in the season, I've got a bridge in NYC I can give you a great deal on. Nashville dramatically improved their position at the trade deadline, picking up Andrei Kostitsyn AND getting Alexander Radulov back from the KHL because he had a year left on this contract with Nashville when he defected to play in Russia.
The Wings? We got Kyle Quincey.
This was simply about giving the Red Wings the best possible chance to win in the first round of the playoffs. They do not now have that chance. Chicago came out of this with the best possible situation: Detroit picks up ONE point and locks up the fifth seed, AND the Blackhawks still get a win and get to play the Pacific division winner. If I were the Blackhawks I would be popping champaign in the locker room right now.
