Free agency shouldn't even be a thought this year for a defenseman. Quincey should and hopefully will sign with another team, and no one else should be brought in, other than a top pair guy via trade...


I do wish we were able to part with Ericsson and keep Q, however.

I know it has already been talked about but here is more proof


a Richards Houda duo would definitely be solid

Crosby is arguably still the best player in the league, I won't judge him on this year with all the turmoil in Pittsburgh but Kane was unreal this year. It looks like Mcdavid will be the best player soon


Arguably?  I don't think it's arguable.  He finished top 5 in scoring again despite having a terrible start to the year.  Kane is just now joining the party.  Crosby has been in the Hart trophy and Art Ross discussion for years.  Doing it year after year is what makes someone the best.

Blues. Easy. I'm pegging them with the Cup. Hate the Blues but it's an old, stale hate. Rather them than Pittsburgh or San Jose. Still pretty neutral about the Lightning.

2-0 Blues so far.  Keep that skate on the throat.


Scratch that...still 1-0 Blues.  Stars got lucky there.

FDA is now going to regulate cigars, and ecigs.


As a consumer of stogies - this really cheeses me off...F-ing feds.

That's the problem with people who pass rules. 
You give them an inch, they take a mile.

In Fargo, they put a no-smoking ban to a vote.  It didn't pass the first few times so they added an exemption for places that children weren't allowed.  Then it passed.  Most of the people who wanted to smoke in public wanted to do it in bars anyway.

Then they tried to pass one that would not allow people to smoke in bars.  They made a big deal to the public about how it would be good for business because now "anyone" could go in there.  No, they just changed the definition of "anyone".  No one was actually being kept out before.  They chose not to go in there.  They may have had good, solid, health-related reasons, but it was their choice.  Several non-smoking bars were opened, and they all failed.  No one wanted to go there if one of their group smoked, or if they smoked, even if only when drinking.

The only way they got that through was by adding an exemption for the one cigar place that offered sales and storage, as well as a lounge for people to smoke their cigars in.  That made sense.  People went there for the sole purpose of smoking.

Then they banned smoking in there.


What really got people irate is that with each step, businesses spent a good chunk of money to accommodate their customers.  Originally smoking was allowed if there was a separate area with its own ventilation. Businesses put them up.

Then, when it was moved outside, bars put up smoking shelters.  Now you can't smoke within 20 feet of a door, vent, or window, so all of that money was wasted.


Fortunately there is still one place they can't touch.  All of our casinos are on reservations.  Since they are run by a sovereign nation, they can set their own laws.  Many have voluntarily built separate non-smoking sections, but their business has increased from smokers looking for a night out.


No one would be half as mad about how things turned out if the non-smokers hadn't approached each step as a "compromise".  At first, smokers were glad to compromise.  Then as each "compromise" took away more, there was increased bitterness.  Eventually, the pretense of "compromise" was dropped, and smokers were left feeling cheated.  We jumped through all the hoops in the hopes that things would be fair.  We had our spaces; they had the rest.  Then they took ours too.


So we sit in casinos and our Native brethern say, "You didn't learn anything about treaties, did you?"
