  1. Honestly, the life of a tough guy nowadays can't be that stressful. There's hardly any fighters or enforcers on 80% of the teams you play against.

    Any tips on ways to tolerate the NBC media?

    I enjoyed hockey a lot more when Gary Thorne was calling the games. Bring back Clement as well. Emrick and whoever the color commentator are just don't anything for me. Connor McDavid will only be playing 7 times on NBC. He will, however, play in 17 NBC televised games if he gets traded to the Flyers before the season and plays in all 82 games.

    Stan Mikita Passed Away today

    The man had an amazing resume and is one of the great centers in the game's history. He won 4 Art Ross trophies in 5 years. Only a handful of players did that. He was voted to the All-NHL first team 6 times. He's also one of the best defensive centers of all-time.

    That was likely gang related idiocy where the Wings logo likely meant something else.

    No. Has never won the Norris trophy or had a memorable playoff run. Doesn't have Phil Housley's sexy numbers.

    It came up in the conversation so I responded. Barry Sanders didn't have any kind of groundbreaking effect on football history to be compared to a Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, a Gordie Howe or a Ty Cobb. He was a popular guy that kids loved and a great player, but he did not revolutionalize the sport, his position, or culture in general. Do you think a guy like Cobb would be given honors in today's America? He was by all accounts an unlikable person. The sports world is very unforgiving right now to things like that.

    Are you basically saying that only white people care about hockey?

    Walter Payton. OJ is maybe top 10, but not top 5. Not sure why you mentioned him as likely the best running back ever? I guess you can argue he had the best season of any runningback but that doesn't make him the best. None of those guys was the best ever in their sport. Not much argument could be made, honestly.

    Stevens changed his career like no other player I can think of. He went from being a productive offensive defenseman to a dramatic reduction in stats and becoming a defensive defenseman. Guess how many Norris trophies he won, though?
  11. No. There's some great photos and videos of the first McDonald's opening in Moscow in 1990 or 1991. I'd recommend taking a look.
  12. I lived in Soviet Russia back in the early 90's. It's not that anyone starved, but that you had to wait in line forever for food sometimes, and didn't really have the pickings of what you wanted. You ate what was available and not what you wanted to eat. Limited choices.

    That's a good point. Physically he'd have a better chance to wear out than Lidstrom did.

    Lidstrom was a freak of nature though. Hard to expect anyone else to play like that in their 30's. I've always thought it should go to the best overall defenseman. The players that have usually won it were great all around. Every now and then, it's given to someone who's great offensively but not so much in their own zone. Rarely is it the other way around. Like I said, Langway is an outlier.
