I love stuff like this but also can't help but get caught up in stuff like "would you really take Guentzel over Dubois/Cirelli/Seguin/etc".

I'm already pre-annoyed about Boo Nieves.
He made the opening night roster. Although, I suspect that's partly due to Tyler Johnson/Luke Schenn taxi squad salary cap fuckery that doesn't allow players on waivers (or something like that) to play tonight. I think maybe there was some sort of roster deadline thing yesterday? Either way, looks like he'll be on the taxi squad at least.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

I know this is kind of old news now, but I'm happy that I put Tony DeAngelo on my "don't draft" list when putting together my fantasy teams.

Everything I've seen of K'Andre makes him look like the polar opposite of DeAngelo in all ways except "Rangers defenseman". Hopefully NYR dumps the fucking racist in a second if anything pops up.

I was this close to buying it and then realized 3/7 of the Pens games will be on locally, plus the national games and random other "free" games on NHL.TV or wherever and so I didn't buy it and renewed my Athletic sub instead with the pool money burning a hole in my pocket.
I felt aswirl with warm secretions.

Another rule I want: you can never take the puck backwards in 3 on 3 OT. Once you cross a line, whether it be center ice or a blue line, you can't take the puck back across it.

That would make OT ridiculous. There would be 40 stoppages in 5 minutes.

Something about the Avs look isn’t working despite the elite color scheme. Not sure if it’s the helmets or the pants or what.

One of the things I don't like about the COVID impact is the impact on Ovi's chase of Gretzky's goal record. 188 goals to tie the record. At least it is a contract year so Ovi maybe motivated (maybe not). But I am guessing he misses a few games this year due to the virus.

2 more goals and he ties one of the great Caps on the all time list

Esposito, Dionne, and Hull are all within reach this season. 60 goals to catch Cap great Jagr

No hyperbole, DeAngelo + Johnson might be the worst own zone defensive pairing I’ve ever seen.
