Re: Olympics

I agree. I preferred it when it was amateurs anyway - for all sports. The best countries with the deepest talent will still be in the tournament. I think it's BS if the Russians go, though. But what do you do? You can't penalize the teams - Bettman fining Leonsis? Get real. So do you make the penalt...

If Duby's tired, why play him?

Why is he seeing ice Tuesday or Thursday?

Duby vs. everyone else

How much of this is Duby? 70%? He was off in the 1st last night. Couple shots he overcommitted and had to lean back the way he'd just come to make the save, gave up rebounds as a result. I thought he was better in the 2nd, even saved an Ovi slapper from the circle....until the wheels fell off. Obvio...

Re: Farewell, Minnesota

We made a very similar move, for very similar reasons. All I can say is that we have absolutely no regrets. So many issues you deal with as a couple/family are financially-based. We took a chance to wipe those issues off the board, with the cost being moving away from family and friends. We love our...

Re: Concerned?

I'd like to see some aspect of the team performing well. Right now it's nothing. I keep thinking that this adversity is good, if they can pull it together. But...they have to pull it together.

Re: And Another Thing: There's No Reason to Play Up

I never had to make the decision - or I should say my parents didn't. But my sister sort of did. Our HS was tiny. She was the best soccer keeper in the school, so she was the varsity starting keeper for 5 years. 8th-12th grade. Now, she was good. But she was also the only keeper in the school at tha...

Re: season ticket holder price increase

The other interesting economic feature is the question of substitutes. Most pro teams do not have to compete with a pure substitute in their home market. The Rangers/Isles/Devils would be an exception. The Wild doesn't have another NHL team in-market, but can you say they contend with more substitut...

Re: season ticket holder price increase

Except they get people to pay for the right to be on the waiting list, so, the PV of those deposits ($200/seat) has some value, assuming people are constantly joining the warming house. If so, then they want to have full season tickets and some people on the wait list.

I'm torn on Chicago in the playoffs. At the end of the day I just want a good run. But I feel like beating them would provide tons of confidence.

Re: This is so much fun

Exactly! And I'm not disappointed when they lose because they've done such an amazing job of not getting into a losing streak. Sooner or later they have to lose 2 straight, though. They're due. As long as it doesn't become four or five, then that's no problem.

I've fully crossed over. This season is just a blast. Who knows if we'll ever have this again, so I'm going to enjoy it. I know the risks. Even if we're legit (we are) only 1 team wins the Cup. But I'm just looking at the next game.

I'd like to see him get 10. That's how you make guys think twice. I think he gets 5, and they'll note he's a first time offender in the video.
