    The Montreal mascot is the most embarrassing, it’s the baseball mascot (expos) that the Canadien just brought back.

    le club de hockey des canadiens de Montréal do not need a mascot

    I could name most of the MLB mascots, and at the very least tell you what they are. I dont think i could name or describe half of the NHL ones.

    I know, was really fucking (not literally) with you. I remember us against the world arguing that tb should move bishop for another piece (defense) one year before they lost him for nothing. Just after their run I think.

    Vasy was probably the easiest goalie prospect to evaluate and know he would play since price. And they don’t come around much.

    I like carter hart a lot but it’s not the same. Hart could become a holtby and that would be incredible for philly, that’s his ceiling imo.

    Because baseball is so boring that you need stuff to distract you from the boring game.

    He has deceptive speed, It made no sense putting him in the fastest skater competition though.

    Yeah that would've been a better competition for him.

    Best all star game and still incredibly boring, there's no need for them in any sport. Just give them the distinction and a break

    A 1st this year and 2 former 2nds ain't that cheap (both 2nds playing up to their draft expectations). Especially for a #3D that's about to hit his decline. Going all in.

    I think this is the leafs knowing they can't sign Gardiner for what he's gonna go for next season with the Matthews and Marner deals looming, so Muzzin is his replacement for 2019-2020 at a better cap hit. (after which, 11.5 million extra opens up between Marleau and Horton on the long term ir)

    It's just a smart move to try to not skip a beat next season, make all the contracts work, and get through to 2020 when you can get out from under the cap pressure.

    Dahlin is insane. 28 points in 49 games now and 8 in his last 7. 18 yo defensemen are not supposed to be this good.
