    And like a washing machine, people would praise the manufacturer for it lasting so long. Only haters of that particular brand would poo poo on it.

    Me mowing the lawn at 6 AM and none of the neighbors wake up, picking the right setting on the microwave for my bacon cheeseburger, asking the wife permission to go to the local sports bar and she says yes, listening to the same classic rock for the billionth time but still enjoying it.
    I have a separate touchdown dance for each one.

    Red Wings signed 23 year old, Finnish, defenseman Oliwer Kaski to a 1 year ELC today.  Kaski was 2nd in the Liiga in defensive scoring this season and had previously played at Western Michigan for two years so he's familiar with North American hockey.  Oh, and he's a right shot for the dopes who over value that particular characteristic.

    Learn2LuvIt got a reaction from F.Michael in Is Mike Babcock overrated?   
    Yeah, overrated in regards to what they are paying him for sure.  If I had my pick, there would likely be two current coaches who I'd take over Babs.  However, what happened to the Leafs/Babs last night I believe more a testament to how awesome the NHL Playoff's are and what a massive grind and accomplishment it is to win The Cup.  The "second season" is a bit cliche, but it's soo true and what makes the playoffs compelling even in the 1st round.  Compared to some other pro sports like the NBA, the 1st round is really a formality (e.g. see Piston's basketball).  With the NHL, you never freakin know and "upsets" happen every single year.  Crazy...but awesome.
    Babs will have a tough summer and likely a tough road ahead in Toronto indefinitely until he either gets them The Cup or deep (like game 7 of the SCF deep).  He'll bear the brunt from of an old saying he saw here daily in Detroit: "To whom much is given, much is expected".

    Perhaps his moves cause the cup to come home a couple of times I think 3 is a good number before he retires(one can wish). Then he is both a LEGENDARY player AND LEGENDARY GM. No way does he come back to the Wings without the thought he can take us to the promised land.

    This video compilations of players are always really interesting to me.  I tend not to pay too much attention to the one-timers directly in front of the net (that's really more of a product of a great assist), or the wrist shots from 15' out...those plays and associated skill set don't typically translate on equal par to the NHL game as other qualities (IMO). What I DO (or stood out) like about this Podkolzin kid is his calmness and power in controlling the puck through traffic...and then the finish.  Very small sample size, but impressive.  One last thing that i noticed was his teammates reaction when he scored...although a national/pride game being played, they all seemed super pumped for him and swarmed him..I wouldn't even consider drafting a player on this last  observation alone...but it doesn't suck that he seems to be well liked by his teammates.

    Sure, they get the "best chance" at the top pick now, but that chance is still really low. They're playing against the field, and have less than a 1 in 5 shot at the top pick. There's a 50/50 chance the worst team in the league gets a top 3 pick or the 4th pick. Those aren't great odds...
    Any team can beat any team on any night. If the "worst team" in the league has 15 games to accumulate points, and the "best of the worst teams" has 1 or 2 games to accumulate points, who do you think will end up with more points? Obviously the former... With the "Gold Plan", no team is likely to move up or down more than a few spots, especially with the motivation to win every night.

    Yep.  Also IMO, this goes against strategy of trying to create consistent parity within the league.  The way it is now, the poorest get the best chance to get significantly richer.  If they changed it to "play for the pick", then it changes the equation to: the poorest will likely remain poor because as stated, they were the poorest and shouldn't be expected to miraculously become better in the final stretch of the season to win the highest or very high draft pick.  They are the poorest/worst team for a reason and the league has a vested interest in making sure these teams have a fighting chance at becoming rich in the future.
    Last thought...playing for the pick might actually cause teams to "fake tank" ...."lying in the bushes and wait" until the "play for the pick" sweepstakes begin...then they kick it in gear and suddenly look like the best of the worst teams and win the highest for a very high draft pick.

    Probably lots of valid reasons, tbh.
    Differences in strength of schedule could be a sore point and would probably have fans complaining just as much if not more than they do about the current system Injuries could also be an issue, e.g. the Devils probably don't finish third from the bottom this season if Taylor Hall doesn't miss most of the season (again, fans would howl) Might change the standard development curves of prospects, as teams might be less inclined to give young players a serious look in the late stages of the season I'm sure there's other stuff.
