  1. Post exodus letsgowings, emancipated from the fair weather fans is more real, more fun and I suspect a safer place for hockey discourse. I should post more myself but I haven’t had time to watch games and have little to contribute unless the topics stray far enough from the sport. The site malfunctions are the only regrettable feature here.

    Are Vrana’s statistics more impressive given the disparity of talent between the two teams? Or is that too difficult to discern?

    This isn’t an explanation of causality, it’s the result of what the explanation is demanding. Your anecdote is an evasion of empiricism and lends itself to some rather uncomfortable interpretations.

    If, as you suggest, the solution to the plights of a desperate class are to seize sole arbitration of their destiny, irrespective of exogenous obstacles, what then remains as the explanation for the current state? I guess I would also be curious as to how the point of opportunity can be determined, given a concession was made to some effects of discrimination. Particularly with your added example of an exception, which seems to undermine your position as that would obviously be attributed to causal factors, and if not, then again, what alternative remains?
  5. If the tweet produced earlier in the thread is an accurate representation of the event, and Datsyuk was asked to comment on an anti-*** law, and he responded with, “I’m Orthodox, that says it all”, he is inferring that his position is represented by that institution. Theology can be imprecise, but the Russian Orthodox Church has been full throated in their stance on homosexuality. It is still a weak kneed response though, in both content and delivery.
  6. I got a new phone and need the invite link again I think.

    AA traded to oilers

    Yzerman was repaying the Kyle Quincy favor.
  9. Did Kronwall’s departure take with what remained? It feels a bit like they must start from the first piece.

    It looks like he’s using the force to stop the puck. Draft him.

    Is joe veleno the only representation the wings have?
  12. When are they going to start giving away cars at the games again?

    General Rebuild Discussion Thread

    It started as a push back to the criticisms of the younger generations, (a position that can be traced back literally as far as recorded history, as well as it’s corollary response) but the millennial/boomer battle coincided with the rise in internet saturation and meme culture so it may appear to be novel.

    I haven’t seen the fifth episode yet but the previous one halted the entire narrative momentum solely to provide a Kurosawa homage. Oh yeah, not trying to out anyone’s age.

    It’s ok, I think the general consensus is that it’s good. I can’t shake my devotion to Star Wars even when it’s less than optimal, though I’ve never even glimpsed the cartoons. The Mandalorian is interesting enough in its aesthetic to be worth the time/money. Is anyone here actually a boomer? I think the end of that cycle is the early sixties. I’m 20 years shy of that myself.
