Senators deal their superstar

My guess is the Sharks plan to play the crap out of their top 4 D and attempt to trade down cost wise for their 3rd pairing if they can as they need some help up front.

If Karlsson resigns with the Sharks they will have over $29 Million allotted to 3 defense next year at a time when the NHL is changing rules to make the game more offense oriented.

I do like the trade for the short term for San Jose as long as Thornton and Pavelski still have something left in the tank and Karlsson can return to near the player he was before his injury. This will be the best lineup Karlsson has played with.

So...About that Serena Cartoon

swap out the Asian opponent with an "innocent white girl"

Yeah, if he did that then I agree.

Could have left it at imagery of Serena throwing a tantrum, breaking the rules, and getting beat by a better opponent on that day (there aren't many such days where Serena is concerned).

So...About that Serena Cartoon

Is it racist as hell, a cultural phenomenon, or a bit of both?

I think it's simply an honest take on Serena acting like a spoiled child.

fatty, your link needs a trim ..

Good story though.

Here's a guy on a team with a very legit chance of making it to the Superbowl this year who continues to operate in me me me mode. Reminds me of TO - great talent, just never going to win with him. Probably better to cut him loose and find 2 or 3 1st or 2nd year backs who are committed to winning.

Finding Murph

Really hope he can get some help although it appears as if the NHL and the organizations he played for ignored the signs that he needed help which ultimately led to the lifestyle he has been living for over a decade.

I travel to Kenora 3 or 4 times a summer as it about 45 minutes from a family cottage in North West Ontario. While it is a beautiful location it is essentially a town with no middle class. There are the extremely rich athletes including current and former NHL players, movie stars, and business owners who own $10M+ properties on Lake of the Woods with the remainder of the population basically trying to scratch out a living in the service industry supporting tourism during the spring and summer months. The current labor statistics list 8,300 of the town's 13,500 people as being currently employed; this rate decreases drastically each year at the end of August. The town has a huge addiction problem with alcohol and inexpensive drugs being the substances of choice.
