Re: Hey nonlinear..avatar bet?

I don't know I look at it as results, but roster building. Take out the obvious stuff and the clear non-GM scouting hits and ask does a different GM do better, worse or the same. I don't know what percentage of GMs find a way to ride Lundqvist to a Cup, if not a mini-dynasty, but I'd have to think i...

To be fair, I would condemn the majority of political reporters as abdicating their responsibilities here or atleast not going nearly far enough.

You're extrapolating ... the two tweets I put up condemn either two or three reporters. If you want to call it 50 out of 300, I'll add the others in myself. If 250 sat it out, great.

You'll be able to tell which of the US media covering the team are dopes though based on who they pick as the player of the match. It's Ertz and it shouldn't even be close.

Re: The 2019 NHL Offseason

You can’t really compare Miller and Marleau, can you? Miller beats his current deal on the open market so there’s a little excess value there and I have to imagine market competition.

Re: The 2019 NHL Offseason

I don’t think a protected 1st is bad value for J.T. Miller, just a dumb shit trade for Vancouver knowing it’ll push to 2021 unprotected and they’ll more likely than not still suck.

I don’t know if the proper take is “Scherzer should be bunting like he gives half a shit” or “Scherzer shouldn’t be bunting since he clearly doesn’t give half a shit”, but whatever it was he was doing before deflecting the ball into his face had zero value.

That's an AV thing. He wants his forwards flying everywhere and prefers his defensemen do absolutely nothing versus risk getting burned being aggressive.

And Braun is the exact type AV will play for all the wrong minutes at all the wrong leverage. All-in GAR/WAR stats are still sketchy for hockey, but Braun and Niskanen were both bottom 10th percentile 1,000 minute d-men last year.

Same thing in hockey where you can slash someone in retaliation and go to the box.
Unless you're talking about tapping shin pads or something more embarrassing than just moving on, any slash carries injury risk.
