    Athanasiou Signed 1 year $1.4 mil

    I just went and checked to see who is left unsigned for teams and there are a lot of players that are marginal and/or young that are going overseas. I wonder if some are not taking a year to play in a league where they will let them off for the Olympics. You know the teams will be watered down without NHL players. A guy like AA might have the chance. Obviously if a player has an NHL contract or can get a good one, he'll stay, but if the choice is between mediocre money here and good money there plus a chance to play in the Olympics, how many players might not take a year away from the NHL for that experience? Not saying this is AA specifically, just throwing it out there.

    This or That

    In general, I like the links, but there are some good patties and bad links out there. Sausage is, kind of by definition, different every time. Mittens or gloves?

    Ooh, that's a hard one.. In general, I prefer cold to hot because you can always add more clothes, but you can't always take them off. That said, as a North Dakotan, I prefer summer because there's no shoveling, no warming up the car, no worrying about getting snowed in at work or home, and there's hockey. Chicken or eggs?

    Sauce. Preferably more sweet than spicy, and not too much of it. Cash, check, debit, or credit?

    The person below me game...

    The last 3 years are the only time since 1986 when I haven't had 2 jobs or had a full-time job whilst going to school full time. I guess I kind of have 2 jobs now since I've started a business on the side. I make candles as a hobby and have started selling them at events. The person below me is a Gemini, Irish, or a vegan.

    /G/if, just to make sure that I'm not watching peanut butter. Hot tub or sauna?

    Nope. I'll be lucky if I get to one in St. Paul. The person below me has more than 6 pictures of friends/family on their living room walls.

    Never say die. I still believe the Wings can and will come back. I also believe this of the Lions, and look where that's gotten me. The person below me speaks a second language (or first, if English is your second).

    Froot Loops. Haven't had them in years, but now that you mention them, I may have to make them my next frivolous buy. Better b-day gift: Gift card or money?

    Would be nice, but I've never been to Detroit. The person below me occasionally eats pickles.

    July 1, 2017 UFA DAY!

    KFQ is now a Wild. I guess after getting rid of Scandella via trade, they need a D.

    Bonino to the Perds. Interesting.
  15. Always good to have a player who can play both F and D in case of injuries. Just ask Meech.

    Me too. Just because he's Jagr.
  17. I was hoping we'd get him. One of the few reasons I didn't throw things when Pissburgh won again. (Cullen being the other.) Reasonable contract, I'd say, all things considered. We've been begging Holland to give us help on the D and he did. Witkowski will be playing F, but can play D if needed when/if injuries arise.
  18. I'm so excited! He was captain of the Force (my local USHL team) and he is quite the fighter and all around good guy. He was a d-man here, but was offensively capable. Good Michigan boy. I always hoped he'd play for us.

    I have not. I'm not a fan of tea. I have watched the Facts. video where they try it. The person below me has a crafting hobby and will now tell us about it. (If you know anything about people with crafting hobbies, you know the last part of that sentence was unnecessary.)

    High school fun. I had more time since I wasn't working full time. Cheerios or Fruity Pebbles?
  21. Can I just ***** slap Crosby now?

    Only one choice in my book. You might say that Ford is the Solo choice. Fleury or Murray?

    I have not, but my Godson is stationed there with the Marines. If I had the money, I'd go see him, The person below me is hot. Define that any way you wish.
  24. I hate that the Preds' fans' negative cheering is so scripted. If a goalie lets in a soft one, sure, get the sing-song chant of his name going. He deserves it. On the other hand, if he just made a fantastic save but his own man muffed the clear and put it in, that's not on him. If his D left him out to dry on a 2-on-0, that's not on him. If a Pred was sitting in Murray's lap like it was story time at the daycare, it's not the goalie's fault. When you jeer a goalie after every goal, especially if he made a valiant effort, you sound like you don't know the game and are just following along with the jumbotron. That said... NO ONE is allowed to take our "last team to repeat" status. Not here. Not now. Not ever. I shall remind myself how annoyed Shea Weber will be if Nashville wins and root heartily for the Preds.
  25. Interesting bit of trivia: This is the first Stanley Cup Finals where both teams' jerseys are the colour of the first letter of the team nickname.
