  1. 2018 MLB Hot Stove Season

    The Headley trade pisses me off more than the Stanton trade. The Marlins were going to dump payroll. NY(AL) lucked into Stanton because Gift Baskets has no idea what he's doing. But this trade makes no sense for the Padres. They are one of the cheapest teams in the league. Why are they helping NY(AL) dump payroll? Headley is garbage. Bryan Mitchell isn't good enough or even young enough that taking on Headley's $13 million contract makes sense.
  2. I would consider making the Devils and Flyers as the permanent rivals and sticking the Islanders with the Panthers. I don't think the Isles and Devils have much of a rivalry. Yes, you do get a good number of Devils fans when they play in Brooklyn/Uniondale, and likewise many Islanders fans make the trip to Newark. But the intensity isn't really there. I'm an Islander fan, and I hate the Penguins and maybe even the Flyers more than I hate the Devils. On the other hand, Devils fans hate the Flyers almost as much as they hate the Rangers, and I don't think Flyers fans are fond of the Devils either.
  3. The only thing I liked about the holiday season was the NHL.com holiday workshop commercial. But apparently that's been replaced by a Patrick Kane ad. Thanks, NHL. (The best part is at 0:32, where Victor E. Green has to wipe his nose, probably because it's too darn cold and he has the sniffles...such realism, and so adorable!)
  4. They can always have the Sabres play a home game at Penn State; it’s not any more ridiculous than them having a home game on Long Island.

    I don't necessarily disagree about him being a Hall-of-Famer, but having two no-hitters isn't exactly a sign of greatness (see Bill Stoneman, Carl Erskine, Bob Forsch...even Johnny Vander Meer).
  6. I really hope the Islanders keep playing well and the Rangers and Sabres keep struggling. Just so it makes the Rangers at Buffalo Winter Classic on Long Island look that much dumber.
  7. Sports Graphics Packages, Historically

    Best I could find in a quick search of the you tubes.

    I’m thrilled the Astros won, but for the first time in my life, I feel a little sympathy for some of my Yankee fan friends. I’m getting old and weak.
  9. Don’t worry, everyone. My buddies at Elias fixed it.
  10. Arena Rafters & Banners

    Banners for the Presidents’ Trophy aren’t too uncommon (I think). The NHL even had a rule before the trophy that allowed the team with the best record to hang an NHL League Champion banner: http://www.nhl.com/ice/awarddisplay.htm?season=20102011#president I don’t have a big problem with these. But the regular season conference champions banners are really dumb.

    I hate NY(AL) as much as anyone, but there was no way the 2001 ALCS was rigged. Now the 2000 World Series, on the other hand, was totally rigged.

    Go Orbit. We're all counting on you.

    Incorrect.
  14. It should be a bench minor, like the too-many-men call that happened later in the game. The coach got to choose who served the penalty both times, and both times he chose Ho-Sang. But for some reason they charge the delay of game to Ho-Sang and not the team.
  15. Poor Josh Ho-Sang is being charged 2 PIM because the Islanders lost an offsides challenge. The scorekeeper must be one of those HOW CAN HE WEAR 66??!!?!? clowns.
