    Do you listen to the Faxes from Uncle Dale podcast? All my friends do. I will listen occasionally just to get in on the convo. The way they rip into Colliton is hilarious

    Yes, I am a very long time listener/reader all the way back from when it was called the Committed Indian. They aren't wrong about Colliton.

    Those guys hate everything. Everyone in chicago sports sucks and theres maybe 3 good hockey players in the league. Their Nihilism is amazing lol

    I'm fascinated by the whole situation, replacing Joel with a kid while still having active franchise legends wanting to win but not really committing either way. I understand the frustration from fans.

    the hawks already were going to suck this year but the injuries just gave them an excuse to bring this moron back

    The blues are hosting first responders and healthcare workers during the first home stand. Apparently less than 300 people per game.

    Yes it’s a nice gesture but if the plan is to have 300 people in attendance each game, idk if that makes sense at all as far as revenue vs risk of spread.

    that sounds bad until you walk into the St Peter’s Rec Plex on any given weekend and there’s probably almost that many people in there

    One of the few areas I’d say Eugene has any understanding in would be this. 6000 is a bit ambitious but a few thousand shouldn’t be a problem. Ottawa is different from most of the country in that the majority of the population work remotely for the government or hi tech. Getting our Covid numbers down will enable fans into the barn. I believe he has already secured rapid tests.
    The bigger concern is where is he getting the money to pay salaries and buy PPE?

    Just want everyone to remember this date when the Sabres had the same record as everyone else and the entire season was in front of them.

    Please do not follow up in 2-3 weeks from now when the season is effectively over.

    Apparently Josh Norris and Drake Batherson’s fathers both played pro hockey in Germany, so they’re fluent and speak it with Stuetzle at home. (Stuetzle is living with Tkachuk and Norris)

    obviously his English is pretty good anyway but thought that was pretty cool bc you usually hear it the other way around on German soccer teams

    Yzerman said today he hopes the league pushes the draft back, which makes sense since so many kids haven’t even played yet this season.

    Could see the Flyers being really good this year.

    with healthy Patrick and second year Farabee they basically have 3 lines that can score and 2 that can play shutdown.

    they’re really deep up front. not sure about Braun on the top pair and the third pair is definitely suspect but hopefully Hart can cover up those issues.

    would be great if they found someone legit to play with Provorov. doesn’t seem like they want to break up Sanheim and Myers for the time being.

    Rutherford signing, within the last 2 years, jack johnson, Erik gudbranson, Cody ceci, and mike Matheson to the Pens blue line is incredible
