I'm a Dominican guy

The 'La Gloria Cubana' sticks we can buy 'legally' here in the states has it's primary HQ in the DR, but apparently there's still the original factory in Cuba.

Per Wiki 'La Gloria Cubana is the name of two premium cigar brands, one produced on the island of Cuba for Habanos SA, the Cuban state-owned tobacco company, and other produced in the Dominican Republic by El Credito Cigar Company for General Cigar Company, now a subsidiary of Swedish Match.'

Huh, never had one.

Always thought Cubanos were extremely overrated. I've had a lot of Domincans that I thought were just as good if not better.

Get that Nicaraguan trash outta here

Whaaaa :shock: ?

Nic sticks are great...CAO, Drew Estate, Padron, Oliva, Roma Craft are just a few that use Nicaraguan tobacco, and/or have fields/manufacturing there.

Even though I have never had a real Cuban - I've heard that they're much different than what we have here in the States...More of a 'mineral' flavor that is unique to the soil of Cuba.

If I'm Karlsson I'm f*cking Ottawa as hard as I can on this one. As in: I'm doing everything I can to reduce their trade return. As in: I'll only go as a one year rental, then I'm hitting the wind as a UFA.

edit:

(then I'm signing with Detroit so I can help Zadina "fill Ottawa's net with pucks")

CAO and Padron are pretty excellent, I think they both source from Dom Rep too thou

Idk, I've had Cubans (at least I think) and just didn't understand the hype. They're probably different, but idk about better. Probably beyond my taste buds.

My thoughts exactly. Maybe he doesn't want to play for any of these teams that are willing to trade for him now (with the extension in place and Bobby Ryan.) At the deadline, Ottawa could turn him for at least a knights ransom, instead of a kings, to a contender who just wants that rental for a Cup run, at the TDL someone could take on Ryan's contract as well, when they have more cap room available. I, for one, do not want to trade for him, but would love to offer him the world in July to finish his career here in Little Sweden...but, by then, we'll be more of a Michigan Mafia.

I subscribe to a few YouTube channels that feature cigar reviews, and the consensus is that Cubans aren’t really better - just different .

When adding to the fact that they’re hard to get, may get seized by customs, and there’s many fakes out there - I’d just assume stick with what I can purchase legally via online auction sites at a fraction of the cost.

Having a few ‘tuppordors’ with hundreds of cigars I’m my own worst enemy late at night after having too much bourbon since that ‘bid’ button is so tempting.

Edit- and yes - most cigar companies use a blend of tobacco from a variety of countries be it Nicaragua, the DR, Honduras, Brazil, the USA, and even Europe.

Karlsson to Athanasiou, HE SCORES!

Erik wants to be a Red Wing so badly...

LOL. The first one is a result of great forechecking by Nyquist. The 2nd one was a result of Nyquist doing a great job of bringing the puck into the offensive zone and getting the puck to the net. AA floated on both of those. Neither would have been scored if not for Nyquist's hard work.

The first one you speak of was a great forecheck by Nyquist, but since when is finding the open spot on the ice in the O-Zone considered floating?

The 2nd one you speak of you need to watch again and see exactly who it was who brought the puck into the O-Zone and made a great pass to Nyquis and then was in the right spot at the right time for the loose puck.

1st one of the video he makes John Carlson look like a peewee, as he does with Oduya. It's amazing how much AA makes All-Star and All-World D-Men look like minor leaguer's.

Just look at the Columbus goal, AA is floating around doing his best Holmstrom impersonation. Is that what Holmer did best? Float?

The Philly goal AA makes the poke check to free the puck, then uses his lightning speed to blast past the defenders and receive the pass perfectly and embarrass yet another goalie.

Pit goal, right off the bench at the right moment, perfect pass up the seam. Speed got him between the two defenders. Can't call that floating.

2nd Philly goal, was deep in the D-Zone covering his man, then used his lightning speed to jump on the loose puck, result? Embarrassed goalie.

Boston goal on the PP, just a perfect shot from the slot, he had a man on him, were they both floating?

Tampa goal, again, when is finding yourself the open spot in the O-Zone called floating? He was in the mess of players and got himself open for the one timer.

Columbus Shootout goal...well, yo can say he was out there at center by himself on that one... :P

If we're honestly going to call ANY of those goals "floating" around, you should watch the 15-16 Larkin Video that comes up, very, VERY similar goal selections...man we got a bunch of floaters on this team.

AA is legit and is a huge part of this team. Most electric goal scorer on the team.  Until we see what Zadina can do...

How come when Franzen does it he's a floater, but not when AA does it he isn't? Hmmmm....

Umm..Who was the guy that actually went into the high traffiic area with the puck and put it on net? ANd who was the guy that avoided the same high traffic area and hung back away from the play?

If Johnny "A little dab" Oduya is an All-Star/All-World Defenseman than I am currently banging Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence.

TBH, I stopped watching after the 2nd goal when I realized that it was just fake news Pro-AA propaganda.

Larkin actually plays a 200 foot game and has a great work ethic. I don't think AA has ever skated past the face off circles on either end of the ice except for breakaways.

AA is great at benefitting from his teammates' hard work. I will give you that. That's the problem. He a finisher, nothing more.
