    I thought it might be fun to take the family on a road trip on March break and watch the Leafs in ottawa. I checked, the crappiest seats are $180 each, so no thanks. Interesting though, a couple days earlier, we could see St Louis/ sens for $29 a ticket, lol, and that's on March break! Unless the Leafs are in town, they can't give the tickets away. What a disgusting blemish ottawa and the sens are on Canadian hockey.

    Moving North? Things to consider

    Exciting times! Do your research, you're not in a rush. I like being on a well, septic bed and wood burning at my cottage. My only fixed cost is hydro and property tax.

    Nope, I've slandered Sparks since the preseason. To me it's obvious he's not comfortable, he's nervous and having trouble with his confidence. I understand it would be giving up on a prospect but I don't want him starting anymore games and costing us points. here's a stat, last year the Leafs won 78% of games when they scored 1st, Sparks let his first one in at 28 seconds on Sunday, lol

    Ok, I was thinking the landowner might possibly be giving permission to more than one guy or party, sounds like it's more regulated down there I think up here it's more common a hunter gets verbal permission and greases the landowner a bit, a bottle and a homemade pie at Christmas, some sausages after the hunt, helps him out when he can, stuff like that

    The guy that made the video was being a little aggressive considering he only leases the property, he doesn't actually own it. Awhile back I was prospecting on private property during rifle season in November. Holy crap did the land owner come at me hard and he was in a rage. He assumed that I was hunting. Rifle season is a pretty big deal.

    I agree. Going down 2 goals quickly changes the momentum and mentality of the game. How long will management keep playing Sparks? It's obvious he isn't working out.

    damn those guys, but it was an even game from teams that look similar but that's why we pay JT $11 JMO but I don't like shaw on Muzzin and benn on Kadri and gallager snowing Freddie, wish we had a guy like McLaren to threaten to feed them their own teeth on national TV

    No brainer for me, to let go would be Zaitsev, Hainsey, Brown, Gardiner Nylander is good but not nearly close to $7 mill good, and God willing please let Marleau and his contract disappear before next season

    Crosby could make $17 mill? The Pens, Hawks and Kings have all won a few cups recently with 5 guys accounting for more than 50% of the cap.

    Ennis and Lindholm are cheap, why would they have to go? Those are the kind of players we need, cheap, but can still play an effective role. There is creative ways to do things. Remember the Orpik trade- https://thehockeynews.com/news/article/orpiks-team-friendly-deal-with-capitals-one-month-after-trade-buyout-raises-eyebrows
  12. Good purchases Huzz! let me know if you'll be up in Haliburton, I'll tow you out to a spot

    Hold My Beer

    When I was in the Yukon I heard quite a few locals say they prefer a winter in Whitehorse compared to a winter in Vancouver based on the dry/ damp cold thing

    yep, you called it, even guaranteed it, cheers, I'm looking forward to tomorrow night, it's been a long 8 days of Leaf deprivation and we also get to see our new D Man in action.
