  1. Hard to say without seeing how the contract is written, but once the players are no longer being paid, wouldn't the league be in breach of contract?
  2. Ukraine elects their next president - a comedian who was best known for starring in a political satirical drama in which his character accidentally becomes Ukrainian president. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48007487

    Except neither of those things are what happened. What about aids ignoring orders and praying that it just doesn't come up again, putting "spin" on their answers that they had done "something" but not what he really requested, or Trump firing people for not doing as he asked. The world really isn't broken down into "anti Trumpers" and "Trumpers". Can't stand this black and white thinking. The world and this whole situation is in general more complicated than that.

    Seems to me this debate about impeaching and indicting Trump has run its course for now. Let’s see what happens next with the report Amazes me how a number of you can fill up pages and pages of posts repeating the same things back and forth. Dedication . Here is something that has been mentioned but a little lost in the shuffle. The report indicates Trump aids regularly ignore his orders because they are reportedly illegal or unwise. Is this an indication of the system working in the US. Where would we be today if everyone had followed his orders? Or is this more an indictment of a broken presidency as utter chaos. Or both?

  8. Imagine if a president of a Country went to their Attorney General while an ongoing investigation into significant federal corruption charges of a private company involved with a Lybian dictator where they, among other things, expensed money paid for prostitutes for said dictator and that company also happened to be a major party contributor and the president tried to coax said attorney general into looking the other way and dropping the charges. Now instead of president, replace it with Prime Minister.

    Locked indefinitely until people can prove to me they can discuss this topic without slinging insults.
  10. Might mean they changed his contract?
  11. Sounds like he just wants to play. Here or another team.
  12. Thread is unlocked, but I am going to start handing out suspensions to people who can't behave civilly in this discussion and in politics. Seems to be the usual suspects in both. You guys don't have to agree with each other, but you do have to respect each other and contribute to a discussion, if this is too sensitive of a topic for you to do that, then don't post.
  13. Locking this thread for a day. Perhaps everyone can take that time to cool off and actually try to have a discussion without insults, gifs, whining, and name calling. Reflect if you all want to have an actual discussion here or I should just split this into two threads so each side can have their bubbles.
  14. Keith Gretzky interim GM of the Oilers while they look for a replacement.
  15. Reilly should take a read on this article before considering Regina https://leaderpost.com/news/local-news/roughrider-struggling-to-find-work-in-regina-during-off-season?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR2gfC5ZKmn_aNgz2GGPVUjZxIIIASozOUX8ucw00RAM7wT6ANMNvGuaa4E#Echobox=1547127483

    This has been fixed.
  17. You are really conflating way too many issues into this discussion to even know where to start, and there are assumptions in your original post that are not even true. Here are a few that I had time to find your facts articles. https://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/winnipeg-jets-paul-stastny-st-louis-blues-1.4552179 Just because they didn't get him in 2014 doesn't mean they didn't bid or try. Jets were a horrible unattractive team in 2014. https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/qa-jets-owner-mark-chipman-team-budget-patience-cheveldayoff/ Regardless of ranking in spending or percentage of the cap, the last couple of years, the Jets have been within a "good" player of spending to the cap, which to me totally makes sense given where their young stars are. Tieing up money to spend to the cap you are going to need to sign young players coming off their ELC's is just stupid. Suppose the proof will be in the pudding over the next few years, but I expect the Jets will be spending very close to the cap. Probably would be a better discussion to separate the topics of the Jets being a "budget" team vs. trading Laine.
  18. @TrueBlue4ever please confirm, intention here is to vote for two from the list? See a lot of people only voting for one.
  19. Just wanted to take the time to wish everyone here a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Thank you all who contribute, read, and participate! Be safe and enjoy your time with friends and family.
  20. Is it? I never said he played bad saving shots and being in position. It is starting to be an issue when he goes behind the net to play the puck. He needs to work on it and get better or stop playing the puck.
