In Topic: It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

At first I was surprised by the high salary amount.   But thinking about it, it is right about where it was projected he would be paid, just a bit higher.

 

People are forgetting to factor in the fact that the Canadian dollar has plummeted over the last couple years and is only worth about 80% of the US dollar. 

 

And as already been pointed out, Ontario is taxed up the ass, so factoring in those two thing, he is making just north of 4 mil per season average.  It was predicted he would set coaching salary records, by getting about 4 mil.

I spoke with one of the engineers.  He said they are going to add an interesting safety measure. 

 

If you are going too damn slow, or tailgating for no reason, or otherwise acting like an *******, a giant metal elbow will swing down from above and knock your car off the bridge and into the water.

Maybe they are just trying to dissuade Toronto from wanting Mantha.

 

Remember, the reason the Phaneuf trade fell apart the first time is because Toronto demanded Mantha as part of the trade.

Welp...  The boys blew it.  I'm done with hockey now for the season.  Time to enjoy the summer. 

 

I'll see you boys and girls in September,  :)


In Topic: Red Wings Fan Charged With Arson At Lightning Game

The whole "allegedly tried to" part makes it sound like she didn't even burn anything at all.  She probably flicked her lighter near it or something.  Not burning down a building trying to murder thousands of people, like the charge implies.  We all know how sensationalistic the media is and how the police will try to stick everyone with every charge they can think up.  Those things being facts in this country, I'll reserve judgement....
