I'm curious how many of these guys that have exploded in the last couple years were ones who could recognize but not really hit good breaking stuff coming up.

What TurdRyan said. Players are focusing on launch angle and all that, but there’s pretty clear evidence this year’s ball is going further, esp when you factor in AAA.

The Crosby game was a go-to-the-bar event on par with a World Cup match; nothing the NHL does garners that sort of interest outside of the two cities involved (at best).

I'm completely mystified that bar soap is still made and that people still buy it.
I went through a body wash phase but I never felt really clean. And hotel soap is impossible to get off your body, you have a perpetual greasy feeling.

Re: Poll: What do you do with soap?

I voted throw away but with a caveat that it depends on the definition of sliver. Once my soap gets to like 40% thickness, I get a new one for the washcloth and use the old one as face soap. By 10%, which I assume is the sliver definition, the old-new one is down to 40% and I'm not about to keep 3 b...

Looks like that would be four years at $40.6MM total. Cost would be 1st, 1st, 2nd, 3rd if they don't match. See no downside there.
Marner would not sign that.
You've gotta think he would have prefered $10.15MM for 4 over $10.9MM for 6, no?
