I don't see why people hate McGuire. The dude has more hockey knowledge then this hole forum combined. It's almost like it's the cool thing to hate on him, one person does it so everyone jumps on board. Quite lame to be honest.
It'll be a sad day when Pierre is no longer on TV.
I think that as a color commentary guy and interviewer, he's obnoxious, incompetent and unpleasant to view and listen to.
I also think that it's silly of you to call the views of "this hole forum" wrong just because people dislike him and you don't.
Draper had groin surgery at the beginning of the season and was out for how long? Assuming this is not an over assumption, that wouldn't be good for the Oz, he was starting to look okay in net. With Ozzy on the edge, Stu for 6-8, and now Filppula out until at least next week, why are our boys dropping like flies? Who angered the hockey gods?

Ok cool, but I want a traditional American wedding. Lots of booze and Elvis. Is that ok with you?
We should probably meet once or twice before the wedding, but it's not mandatory. We can answer those pointless questions like "what's your name?" after the honeymoon.
Frivolous details, I agree. And what is a wedding without a drunken Elvis? Now, you can still back out. My dream honeymoon is six Red Wings games - one in each original six arena. I want all 30, but time might not permit.
Back on topic!
People who are so focused on finding and purchasing that last useless, stupid gift for someone who won't even appreciate it, that they nearly run over the old lady in her motorized wheelchair shopping cart in the crosswalk! -- well, they need a good beating.

Put the stakes into the ground, it doesn't matter if one is in two inches and the others are four or five inches, as long as you place them at the corners of where you think the rink will end up going. Tie some string to the tips of the stakes and connect them to each other, then pull out the level and adjust the strings so they're all level. Once you know your strings are level, you should be able to measure the height at which the string sits over the ground at each corner and determine the net slope of the area that you isolated for the rink.
Again, how the stakes are put in isn't important, as long as they mark the corners of the rink and they can hold the string tight. What's important is that the string which spans the area of your rink is level, because we're using the string as a base or origin from which we can measure deviation in the ground (and we measure deviation in the ground by the difference in height that the string sits over the ground in any two locations. If you have a perfectly level ground, then when you subtract the height that the string sits over the ground at one corner from another, you should get 0. If it isn't so level, then the string will sit higher in one corner than another and you'll get some nonzero value. The idea is to make sure that number is below 8 inches, according to your article.
Absolutely they deserve better. A long-standing, once proud franchise is in the pits of despair with no discernible way out. Much like the Hawks, once they regain some of their former glory, it's back on the Public Enemy list, but for now, they deserve our compassion.
