You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.
Edit: NM "first overall" mean the #1 pick, not #1 in the Western Conference standings.
What a dumb bitch, trying to save face by talking about how much their family loves hockey. Why did she even bother putting any of that in when she just looks like a whiny runt at the end of it all. This is Canada, backyard rinks are the shit and if you think they're an eye soar you should probably not be living here. I don't care that its 4500 square feet, it is what it is.
“We have a dry creek bed at the edge of the property and we want to plant a forest,” she says. “But it is going to take at least 10 years for those trees to mature, so that means 10 more years of looking at that [rink].”
What is a fence.

I wonder when ANYTHING is going to happen.. it's been a few days now.
God knows about Semin. Rumor is he has a 3 year $30 million deal on the table from CSKA in the KHL, but he would prefer to play in the NHL. Teams are only going to pay him half that so who knows if he leaves. I haven't read about him having actually met with anyone or there having been any movement either way with him.
Howson is reportedly "going down the list" on the Nash trade destination list and evaluating what options they are offering. It could be Christmas before that is done. Ryan's deal might not happen until after the Nash deal is finally done assuming Anaheim is dumb enough to move him.
Haven't heard anything at all about Huselius, Winnik, Colaiacovo, Kostitsyn or any of the other decent UFAs so who knows. Rumor has it some GMs may be holding until after the CBA. If a deal does get done this year, rumor has it they may also just extend the current deal one season, some GMs expect there to be a fairly hefty reduction in the salary cap which will result in teams having to shed contracts.
Puck Daddy has another entry from their anonymous NHL player today about the NHL./NHLPA CBA negotiations. These articles are always a great read about the inside of the NHL: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...3225--nhl.html
I wonder who Puck Daddy is...

Apparently those guys in Glendale didn't file a petition yesterday with the required number of signatures so it looks like Glendale is going to move forward with the lease agreement as of now. Can't wait to see what happens when they file the petition prior to the 16th, the date they argue it should be due, and then end up suing the city about it. Now Glendale just needs to actually find the money to pay for the lease agreement since their sales tax plan is going to be a ballot issue in November.
apparently nash isn't going to any canadian teams.. which is fine 7.8 million for no more then 79 points in a season. i wouldnt give up anything up for 7.8million player with the cba up in the air

Considering the great line mates of "Who?" and "He hasn't retired?", Of course Nash is gonna have dick all for points.
The thing about every team on Nash's list is not a single one of them is a stupidly ran franchise, outside of the Rangers who hand out bad contracts like candy but even they won't part with 15 prospects. Good luck Howson trying to get your ridiculous demands out of any of those teams. Might as well scratch off the Bruins unless the salary cap magically goes way up in the new CBA and not down as expected. The Flyers are idiots for continuing to not focus on defense. Same for the Pens really although they need to replace Staal which is going to look like a huge loss if they don't get someone. Rangers, Wings, and Sharks are all attractive options and I guess it just comes down to who gets closer to giving Howson the truckload of stuff he wants.
Also, after reading the Puck Daddy article a couple times, I have compiled a short suspicion list based on how knowledgeable/literate the mystery man might be.
- Shane Doan
- George Parros
- Chris Higgins
- Dominic Moore

Its always shocking how bright of a dude Parros is. With the way he looks and the way he plays you'd think he would be the type of guy who would be sitting on a porch with a shotgun pounding beer 24/7 when not playing.

As for my favorite goal it is right there between the McCarty Cup winner against the Flyers and:
I am going to seriously have to unfollow every single person on Twitter associated with ESPN. These constant retweets of their supporting cancer stuff and peoples cancer stories are killing my ability to follow up to the second posts about free agent deals in the NHL and NBA.

Ken Holland is holding his press conference to announce the alumni game line ups for the Winter Classic. Apparently the Leafs and Wings have so many good alumni and guys interested in playing in the game that there are going to be two alumni games this year. Right now, McCarty, Draper, Kocur, and Maltby will all be playing on a line for Detroit. Dino was at the presser along with Lindsay and Alex Delvecchio were also at the presser for the Wings. Wendel Clark, Jim McKenny, and Kevin Maguire were there for the Leafs. Oh ya and Scotty is going to coach the alumni team.
