    That's a tough way to make a living. I love seeing some scraps though. I grew up watching hockey in the late 80's to mid 90's when scoring was crazy and the fights happened almost every game, sometimes multiple times a game. Glory days for sure.

    I watched Goon with my middle school aged son a few weeks ago. He liked it. Now we want to check out the second one.

    Yes, it's probably not as good, but I heard just about all of the main characters are in it.

    Anyone else getting worried about all of the cancelled games? We had COL scheduled for this weekend until they got hit with Covid protocols, so now we're facing the Yotes for the 4th time in a row. Now the Wild had to postpone their game against the Blues. What the heck? I don't see how they get all these games in at this point if they don't plan on extending the season. Maybe the Coyotes can stay for a full 6 game tilt?

    I imagine they won't make them all up.

    We watched it the other night. It wasn't horrible. My kid actually liked it a lot.

    We're not talking about the Star Wars or Back to the Future series here. It's freaking Goon for Crissakes. You gotta go in looking only for some mindless hockey fun.

    Yeah, hockey isn't like baseball, you can't just have a continuous set of double headers to catch up.

    I think the argument can be made that Star Wars and Back to the Future are pretty mindless as well.

    Penguins about to get more truculent???

    Hextal has been in the rumor mill for GM...

    But Brian BURKE coming back as President of hockey ops??? Shocker.

    https://www.tsn.ca/pittsburgh-pengui...-ops-1.1590441
    The Pittsburgh Penguins have named Ron Hextall as general manager and Brian Burke as president of hockey operations, it was announced today by co-owners Mario Lemieux and Ron Burkle.

    "We feel incredibly lucky to bring in two highly-respected executives with a combined 50-plus years of NHL management experience," Morehouse said. "Ron and Brian are well-known in the hockey world as fierce competitors with championship pedigrees. They're very well-connected and experienced in all aspects of the game. They are both excited to get to work here in Pittsburgh, blending their skills and building on our long tradition of success."

    I don't know what the heck the Devils did, but they have something like 19 players on the Covid list. They already haven't played in over a week and are going to have to wait at least another week to start playing again. The NHL doesn't tell us who has Covid and who is just following protocol so all we can do is hope for the best. I guess that's just how it has to be if the league is committed to playing the season.

    Hextal is a solid building GM. Also in his Asst GM stay in LA. He will stay with the draft picks and develop. Some of his picks and moves in Philly looking better now in hindsight. Drafting Carter Hart, Konecny, Provorov, Patrick.

    Burke, you almost think the game has past him by after Calgary. He may just be the buffer for Hextal to operate. Hextal does the day to day.

    Do the Pens keeping trying to reload around Crosby, Malkin and Letang? Or will Hextal/Burke be the ones to break it up?

    Goalie is also a huge issue... Pens went from having two #1 type guys in MAF and Murray to now having maybe none? Jarry got the 3 year deal based off a solid 2019-20 season, but he has not looked like a #1 goalie so far this year.

    I've got to imagine that if one player gets it that pretty much all of them are going to get it unless they happened to catch it before they get together as a group. It doesn't take much for it to spread up and down the bench during a game. Let's face it, hockey players aren't exactly known for hygiene--there's a reason why hockey equipment has the reputation it does, so I can only imagine how easy it would be to spread. When you see guys sharing water bottles, spitting all over the place during games, etc., I'm frankly shocked that there are incidents where only one player gets it.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
