Re: Work Jerks

This thread makes me feel extremely lucky that the only thing I have to worry about is an office that gets too hot to work in with the door shut and the resulting noise/interruptions of working with the door open This reminds me of one of my former colleagues, a ridiculous person who tried to claim...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Why did the Blackhawks give up on Anthony Duclair? He has been awesome for the Blue Jackets this year They didn't want to pay him what they thought he'd get. He showed some flashes last year but was inconsistent. The Hawks have other fast guys with potential that are cheaper. I liked Duclair but he...

As a teacher I mostly am able to avoid contact with annoying co workers. They make up for that whenever we all have to be somewhere.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I don't see how that is discussed at all there, but anyway, the point is he will have another job before the Hawks build another dynasty. It's in the comments, not the article. Not that it matters, the Hawks aren't going to stand in the way of him coaching somewhere else and someone probably will p...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

He's going to have another job long before the Hawks are ready for another shot at a dynasty. If he wants one, absolutely. He's still under contract so he'd need the Hawk's permission. Not granting it would be a bush league move. He might not mind getting paid $6 million to take a year off either. ...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I wouldn't even be shocked if he got another chance to coach the Hawks again. Let's say Bowman gets fired at the end of the season. The New GM gives Colliton a year to show what he can do or brings in someone else to be the scapegoat during the rebuild. When they're ready to take the next step he m...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I was surprised by the timing of this move but not by the move itself. Hockey is a little different in that mid season coaching changes typically happen earlier than in baseball or football. There's at least some examples of hockey teams turning it around under a different coach (The Penguins a coup...

Re: Week 5 - Bears vs the Bye

I didn't get to see the Tampa game so all I got to see were highlights of Trubisky's TD passes. I'm not a Trubisky hater by any means but his receivers made him look better than he was at least on some of those plays. That's a refreshing change from last season when his receiving corp was a local hi...

Rahm pulled the city's bid as FIFA wouldn't guarantee that significant local financing wouldn't be required to host, or something of that nature.
