NHL Anti-Thread: Bad Business Decision Aggregator

Recommended Posts

They're also going to have SIX alternate captains, three at home and three on the road.

 

The A's are Deryk Engelland, Jason Garrison, Luca Sbisa, Reilly Smith, James Neal, David Perron.

Gary Bettman appeared in my dream last night. No more CCSLC before bed, huh.

At least three of those players have no business holding leadership positions: Engelland might be the worst player in the NHL now that Andrew Desjardins is gone, David Perron is a bitch, and James Neal is an even bigger bitch.

And the Coyotes just brought Zac Rinaldo back into the league! There's probably a loose Sestito floating around somewhere, too.

If you go by point shares, I think Riley Sheahan, of all people, was among the very worst players in the NHL last year in that he was worth -1.2 points in the standings. I don't even know how you do that without being a goon!

Looks like you haven't read up on Phase III of Chaykanalytics, where after you get better by trading for players who technically don't exist, you make your players play smarter by putting them around an irretrievable retard. His presence will challenge players to be so good that their coach, who is not John Chayka and therefore an idiot, has no choice but to relent and play them ahead of the guy with breathing instructions written on his stick. See, this is about Learning By Not Doing, such that you could more accurately call him Zac Rinaldon't. I'm sorry that you can't grasp the advanced hockey geniusness of John Chayka. Meet me in the 21st century.

Deryk "That's Per Year" Engelland had to shave his beard because Vegas has a team policy banning facial hair, not that they'll have to worry about growing any in April for the next decade or so. I think Bill Foley thinks he bought the actual Army, you guys.

At least Foley will have a good long time to draft a playoff beard policy.

This Jumbotron is the only way to recoup our terrible losses from Fire Drill Follies. I just don't know what went wrong.

I don't trust ANYONE talking about heat in sports because it's scientifically impossible. The whole reason we can make screens that big now is because LEDs use less electricity and create less heat. Ever think maybe it was hot because it's October and frickin 80 degrees still?

 

Same thing with people whining about the new Falcons stadium being super hot under those lights. Do they look weird? Yes, LED lights often have different color temperatures and make things look different, one trip to the light bulb aisle at Lowe's will tell you that. But they don't make heat.

Yeah sure maybe the bulbs themselves don't produce any heat, but what about all the components crammed into the giant box behind the screens?

Well, actually, LEDs do produce heat, just less than other light-sources. Still, get 29 million pixels worth of them, and that adds up...

Speaking of LEDs, the Flames ringed their arena decks with "Bill Smith For Mayor" ads last night, and put up a fair bit of Buy Us Shiny New Things propaganda in the concourses. I hope each and every one of these cretins gets kicked in the dick.

 

For you nostalgia buffs, the Coyotes are offering $1 hot dogs, $1 sodas, and $1 beers for their next Saturday evening home game, because how on earth do you convince anybody to go out on a Saturday night these days?

Why does any team think they even need a jumbotron that big, its not like its in the name or anything, but seriously, it probably takes up a bigger land area than any Devil crowd in the past 3 years, well nevermind, thats not that hard to do.

Gotta be keeping up with the Jones’s. Had this discussion with my father the the home opener, how are these things practical? It is admittedly nice to see replays in such magnification and definition but necessary it’s not. And the one here in Tampa isn’t even close to the biggest anymore. To be quite honest it’s a little unsettling being beneath it if you’re on the ice surface!

A jumbotron that big would be perfect for Barclay's Center and their obstructed view seats.  Almost like you were really at the game.

The Flames ran an advertisement for the guy running against Nenshi for mayor, jumbotron antics which actually piss me off more than the yuksters in Dallas.

7,892 at the Hurricanes game. The only thing they can't possess...is love.

Please tell me again why there is a hockey franchise in Raleigh, NC?

Because there couldn't be one in Auburn Hills or a disused hangar outside Columbus.
