In Topic: Senators fire head coach MacLean

He'll rebound somewhere for sure. Maybe in San Jose when MacT gets canned.


I would almost say that Dallas Eakins just felt someone walk on his grave, but would MacLean want to go from a poorly constructed team in Ottawa to the absolute ****show they have in Edmonton?  Sit at home the rest of the season & go to Toronto in the off season when they fail to land Babs.

Right.  Did he not google Mandela on the way to the event? 


Ohhhhh, you know what it is.  He probably forgot to look it up, and couldn't on the way to the event because everbody knows that smart phones still don't exist in small provincial Canadian towns like Toronto. 


By answering the way he did, Bernier pretty much just said, "I am completely ignorant as to who who this guy is & was too lazy to look up even the most basic of information on him.  I am only here because I was offered free tickets to the game.".


If only the reporter had responded with...

exact! I knew his story a bit, knew some things he did, knew why he was arrested.  I researched him with my son a few years ago, so I knew more than I would've if I hadn't, but even today I had to go to wiki to "remember" some things. But I for sure knew he wasn't a professional athlete...still a dumb ass reporter to ask that question.  I am willing to bet that 75% of the basketball players in attendance that night don't know the whole story of Mandela. Especially that he was a communist.


You are invited as a celebrity, athlete or not, to attend an event with a red carpet & reporters to honor someone.  You clearly do not know anything about said someone.  You can't take a couple of minutes before hand to at least google the guy for god's sake?  You don't even need to spend 10 minutes reading his wiki, just pull out your phone & google the dude.  None of that is on the reporter who is there to cover the damn event, it's Bernier being an utter & complete moron.  


And with that, here's a picture of the ugliest Christmas Elf standing next a guy collared after an appearance on Dateline NBC.



In Topic: Devils sign Brunner 2 yrs. $2.5 million AAV

I'm pretty sure if we put a claim in, we get him over the Pens because they are above us in the standings. Though, im not 100% sure how the new CBA works in regards to this.


Not that it really matters given that Brunner went unclaimed, but waiver priority is based on who has the lowest percentage of possible points in the standings at the time of the claim.

Is there a website that I can go to which will show me when our prospects are out of minor league options and have to go through waivers to be sent down?  Or do any of you happen to already know?


capgeek.com has a 'Calculate Waiver Status' option if you drill down on individual players
