I was watching the SJ game on Monday, and a controversial penalty occurred....and then he said something that was in favour of SJ, made a lot of sense, and was articulated without yelling.

I honestly wondered what was wrong with him.

San Jose seem to have got Nyquist really cheap. Guessing him having to waive a no trade clause made the market for him pretty small.

I use to like Jack Edwards when he did non-affiliated games.

Not sure what happens to him when he does Bruins games.

I know these guys are under the microscope but I find broadcasting miscarriages to let everyone know to be something I would not do such as Evander Kane and Erik Karlsson

It happens quite a bit and I know it is a very hard to take in for a couple

I should know my wife and I had 2 miscarriages and one of them were twins. Here is the thing my family or her family never knew it happen

I may have a cold heart but just my beliefs to keep it private

I think at 26 weeks it's different than much earlier. People know she was expecting and they went so far as to name the child. At 26 weeks most premature babies survive.

Listen I get it

First miscarriage for us was just before the 1st trimester

Second miscarriage was just after the 1st trimester (the twins)

My wife cousin had a still born on twins and the daughter survived. She was of course extremely sad but she also didnít broadcast it

Just my 2 cents. Yes itís very sad news but it happens a lot

Now imagine sitting to meet the doctor and they think we should not (my wife and I) saying we may not want to have kids anymore. We had 2 girls as you know afterwards

I respectfully disagree Wayne, though I think it is something reasonable to disagree on. When my wife had a miscarriage (early in the first trimester) with our first, we were not well prepared to deal with it. We knew you ďwerenít supposed to talk about itĒ and that just made it more difficult to deal with our grief. Thankfully we had told our parents at least about the pregnancy, and after the miscarriage, found out both our mothers had one as well, so we had some comfort and support.

Like you said, itís extremely common (something like 25% of first pregnancies). So why not talk about it? For some people it may not be a big deal, but for others it is, and I donít see a reason to hide something so heartbreaking, any more than someone shouldnít hide mental illness, or a family death, or anything else that doesnít reflect negatively on me personally but also may greatly impact me.

Iíve always believed the old saying about sunshine being the best disinfectant. Hiding something that bothers you may make life easier for people around you, but at the expense of both your own well-being and forming Ďrealí relationships with people.
Long signatures are really annoying.

I guess my wife and I donít need the self pity where everyone needs to say sorry for your loss like others do

What a weird, unpleasant and completely irrelevant response. Or maybe itís brilliant? I guess everyone who ever has something bad happen to them should just decide they donít need self-pity and everything would be cool.
