Winter Classic - Sabres vs. Penguins

most tv sucks these days, but there are some shining examples of good writing, acting, camera work, etc... we call those Deadwood and Arrested Development. Family Guy sucks ass, though...

The All-Star Game sucks.
The skills competition is where the entertainment is.

As for Detroit, Blashill is definitely on his way out. He's a good coach, but hasn't had a ton to work with. I have no idea who could replace him.

I think they left him in there so long because these Red Wings are basically his old Grand Rapids Gryphons. They had lots of success... as an AHL team. If Stevie is going to work at building a Tampa-like team, Cooper would be a good piece.

Someone I follow on Twitter made a comment about the Caps vs. Islanders 4 OT game from 1987. I replied about how I was at that game. Kelly Hrudey liked the tweet.

That's cool. I had forgotten or possibly never known you were at that marathon. 2.5 full games for the price of one.

My father didn't really know much about hockey, but he still would take us to games. He knew that a game 7 was big deal and we managed to get tickets. After the 2nd OT, my parents decided we had to leave. We lived around 45 minutes away, and at that time of night, there wasn't any traffic. The game was still going when we got home, so we caught the end of it on TV. I think I still have the ticket stubs in a box somewhere.

Bob Mckenzie just tweeted about the passing of Doug McKay Sr. He only played 1 NHL game in his career, which happened to be for the Red Wings in Game 7 of the 1950 Stanley Cup final. The Red Wings won. McKay also won the championship in the AHL that year, so McKay is one of the few people to win both the Calder Cup and Stanley Cup in the same year.

The Sabres' owners executed Order 66 yesterday. They fired 23 coaches, scouts, and managers. Actually it ended up only being 22 people because they realized they accidentally fired the director of IT so they rehired him.

I don't know what to think about it. The team hasn't made the playoffs in 9 years, so obviously change was necessary. But, it doesn't feel like the current owners know what they are doing. There aren't that many examples of successful teams in any sport where the owner is heavily involved with operations.

Auston Matthews of the Leafs has been home in Arizona training with their goalie Freddie Anderson & some players from the Coyotes. Today he announced he has contracted Covid-19. Anderson has tested positive so far & I believe some 'Yotes players did catch it.... not 100% on that....

From my perspective, that's the biggest sports name to admit they've come down with it so far.

Spring training has taken a hit, as well as LSU's football team - sports can't safely come back any time soon. Everything they're trying is coming up shit.

The NFL has had a bunch of positive tests, including Ezekiel Elliott, and the players haven't even been to the team facilities yet.

The NHL probably should have just cancelled the season. The Lightning had to shut down their facility because 3 players and some staff tested positive. Just imagine how the playoff results can be altered by one or two positive tests on a team.

It is nowhere near safe enough to resume sports, as much as I miss it. It's not even safe for the fans, let alone the athletes & coaches. They should have all convened & agreed to give it a rest for this year & reassess in time to start the 2021 seasons if possible.
