#3771349 Random Hockey Observations

Posted digitalmonkey on 06 July 2018 - 07:32 AM

That's been my feeling toward the Leafs over the years. Now, I find myself following (caring?) more about players now than teams. I think fantasy hockey has a lot to do with it.

Amazing. Everyone votes for the guy who promises to not cut taxes or services but also reduce taxes without increasing the deficit, even though that’s probably impossible and his supposed business acumen basically amounts to inheritance and shady deals. Then he immediately starts things off by cutting science and public infrastructure. Is Ontario going to put up a wall next?

If you knew what these jobs were than you would know what you are talking about

Let me try to explain but my bad education might not allow me to explain myself. However I will try

Wynne creates new positions in the government paying her friends $340k per year and giving them fancy titles. One of them is Allan O’Dette former President of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. When he took the job last year he said he took a haircut which is an all out lie. He got a huge raise

Wynne is a crook as you can see from making new positions for her friends. Ford is cutting these useless jobs

All I can say is it could not have happen to a nicer guy. o’Dette Is hated

I thought I read a quote from the Japanese coach that said during friendlies this year against European teams, they had put players in the “wrong” jerseys at times to hurt th other teams scouting, since Europeans tend to have difficulty telling Asians apart. I think that is hilarious gamesmanship and I am all for it.

I find this very disturbing. Can’t tell the difference? It was the Korean team


I know a lot of people say there is no difference between Asian cultures etc. I will say that yes there is. This can be borderline racism

There's a rumour Tavares is going to throw out the first pitch at the Jays game today. Apparently his decision is going to be written on the ball. The camera is going to zoom in on the ball and the
slo-mo image will be shown on the jumbotron and reveal "Toronto Maple Leafs" written on the ball. Then Tavares is going to rip off his shirt on the mound and reveal a Leafs jersey.

Some people are claiming that's the real reason the roof is closed today... because Tavares would be too hot wearing a jersey underneath his shirt, but I don't believe that.

Get rid of the rock-hard equipment and players will be less likely to throw hits like this.

My first thought was that you Zach are highly biased, and its hard for me to take your views as objective.
Then I looked at Carcillos words, and I can see what he is talking about with regards to the skate.

I guess the question I would have for you in reverse is....do you like hitting in hockey? Do you think there is a way to hit hard and still never make contact with the head? I don't think there is. If that means there is no hitting in hockey, so be it for me. It would come at a loss, but I dont think there is a way to hit hard and not injure someone head.

I dont get much out of violence in sports. I've never been a proponent of fighting in hockey, have always kind of detested it and been embarrassed as a fan of the sport. I dont like football as much anymore because I see what it does and I find it hard to watch.
But, there has always been something about hard hitting hockey in the playoffs I have liked. When its dirty, I get upset, and I dont like it even when someone on my own team does it. Not a fan of "hard players who get under your skin". Thats code for assh*le.
And while Tom Wilson hits hard and doesnt take into account injuries, hope you will feel same next time Hornqvist does one of his dirty plays. :)
