Your argument is tautological. You think the data is "inaccurate" because it doesn't comport with what you see, and you trust what you see because the data is supposedly inaccurate.

Or, in other words, Tatar isn't a good possession player because I don't see it. And I dont see it because i dont believe possession stats. And round and round we go

#2675609 Doug Houda hired as an assistant coach

One thing that I think is super important for both Houda, and whoever we sign to coach the offense, is a knowledge and embrace of how modern analytics can/should inform coaching. I don't know where any of the candidates stand on the topic though.

Do we even have mods anymore or what? Frank makes homosexual slurs in another thread, with no discipline associated, and now this guy's comments? I thought the rules on offensive posts were pretty clear but apparently that doesn't matter if nobody does anything about it.

Anyone remember Lets Pen Pal Wings? Back in the 70's, the "boards" were kept at Matt's dad's house and you had to write letters and recieve copies of photographs of everyones' posts. It was frustrating.

#2650466 Amusing stories you have heard or lived.

Posted by 55fan on 29 January 2016 - 10:55 AM

Another graveyard shift story-


This was many, many years ago.  A guy came in wearing a baseball cap, glasses, sandals, one of those half t-shirts, and a g-string.  He was followed by another guy who was giggling and carrying a video camera.  This was back in the days before smart phones and (fortunately) the internet as we know it.


Videotaping was not allowed in the store, but since there was no way of it getting out for the world to see, I didn't stop him and just went along to see how it all played out.


The guy in the g-string strutted (like he had anything worth strutting) back to the pop section of the cooler.  I kept a straight face.  It just about killed me, but I managed to look bored.


He brought his pop to the counter and gave me a $10.  I gave him his change.  He held the coins in his hand but put the bills in the g-string, saying, "I like to keep my bills in here."


You know how you always think of something funny to say when it's too late?  Yeah.  I'd been keeping the perfect straight face, but the perfect comeback was out of my mouth before I could stop it.


As soon as he tucked the bills in the g-string, I said, "Good thing they're small bills."


His friend was doubled over laughing, unable to tape.  The guy turned beet red and I had to crack a smile.


Wanting to let him off the hook, I said, "Is this for a bet or dare or something?"


He chuckled and went back to the same strutting-type personality he had before and said, "Why no.  Why do you ask?"


They left laughing.  I smiled and had fits of giggles for the rest of the night.

I think there might be a rule where if they scored on the empty net we would forfeit our overtime point and get no points even though it was an OT loss. Can someone confirm/deny? I'm not 100%

"Clubs who pull their goaltender for an extra attacker during the overtime period (other than on a delayed penalty) will be subject to the potential forfeiture of their one (1) point earned for the tie at the end of regulation in the event the opposing team scores into the empty net."

Per 2015 rule changes for 3 on 3 - Board of Governors approval.
