Does this mean that Shane McMahon was president of True North?

Oh, Evander Kane. You'll never learn.

 

Quote

“Shut the [expletive] up, you selfish [expletive],” Buffalo defenceman Justin Falk screamed at Evander Kane before shoving the Sabres’ star winger during a Wednesday practice...

 

 

If the Cincinnati Bengals were an NHL team, they would have acquired Evander Kane years ago.

Looks like Black Knight Sports & Entertainment really stepped in it here. George McPhee should punch another coach in the face over this.

 

This war is just setting started.

YOUR MOVE, ARMY!

Foley: I want it to be the Black Knights. Because Army!

 

West Point: We have a problem with that.

 

Foley & McPhee: We're the Vegas Golden Knights. Because Army. We even invited the parachute team to our big name reveal!

 

U.S. Army: We have a problem with that, too.

 

VGK legal representation: Hold on, this has nothing to do with the Army!

General Mark Milley: I think that's you have misunderstand.

London Knights: We may or may not take issue with a pro team named the Knights, but if you ask us nicely -

 

Foley: What's that? We can't be just the Knights? Oh well! I guess we'll have to name ourselves the Golden Knights instead!

 

London Knights: Wait, we haven't even -

 

Foley: GOLDEN KNIGHTS!

Not unless they get approval from London on the name, since they hold the trademark in Canada. I'm betting they'll just use the Sand Knights trademark that they already have from a while back.

 

The London Knights have no power here. The Lethbridge Hurricanes existed almost 10 years before the Carolina Hurricanes did.

The only person actually claiming the London Knights are an obstacle is Bill Foley. They’re a convenient scapegoat for him so he can dodge questions about why he doesn’t just name his team the Knights.

Report: Seattle NHL group registers 13 names

 

https://www.tsn.ca/report-seattle-nhl-group-registers-13-names-1.972946

 

Cougars, Eagles, Emeralds, Evergreens, Firebirds, Kraken, Rainiers, Renegades, Sea Lions, Seals, Sockeyes, Totems and Whales

 

Yes- Emeralds, Sea Lions, Sockeyes, Totems

 

Kraken is cool, but I despise singular names. Renegades, Firebirds, Cougars, Eagles are just generic filler names.

 

Whales, no. Seals, no. Evergreens, no. Rainiers, no.

Evergreens is splendid, bite your tongue.

 

In Grow-the-Game news, the musical guest for the All-Star Game is a dude who performs in front of a Confederate flag.

Kid Rock isn't the best choice in ANY social climate. But, nobody watches the All-Star Game for the musical entertainment. Nobody really watches the all-star game period, do they?

True. Was it last year that Snoop Dogg was DJing and playing songs with ample "bitches and hoes"?

Kid Rock isn't good for any climate. How hard would it have been to just grab some mediocre indie band like Metric? Is Metric even around still?

 

But to be fair, it's the NHL, it's the All-Star Game, mouthy Hockey Twitter people would be a bottle rocket up their ass no matter what they did. FWAAHHHHHHH AN AGREEABLE ENOUGH ROCK BAND THIS IS WHY YOU'LL NEVER BE MY SWEET BABY NBA

NBCSN has been playing "Shine On Me" by Dan Auerbach for their ASG promos, which is such a fun little throwback of a song.

 

A guy "from Detroit" who actually grew up in a mansion in the outer rings and has gone from faux-rap to embracing alt-right tinged country over the past two decades is almost too perfect for the NHL, when you take a moment to think about it.

Yeah, I like that song more than I want to admit, it's basically "Let My Love Open the Door."

Why Sea Lions but not Seals? Aren't they basically the same thing?

There are sea lions here but far, far more seals. Sea Lions are way more synonymous with San Francisco.

 

Orcas would be better than Whales. And Cougars would never fly due to Wazzu.
