Re: TV thread

The Magicians season finale. A lot of people had predicted the main plot point but sheesh was it an emotional face-punch.

Re: Game of Thrones

As the R+L=J stuff circulated the last many years, and as it was coming in the show, I weirdly never considered the aspect that Sam brought up last night: what if Dany doesn't recognize Jon as the true heir to the Iron Throne? Is there potential for a head-to-head battle here? She shouldn't accept ...

Re: Game of Thrones

Forel and Tormund are replacement-level turds, Snow and Hound are alright but nothing special. The only legit dude on that side is Dayne, but he'll get overwhelmed by the combined might after all his weiner teammates are dead in the first 15 seconds. Dunno about Forel being replacement level. He fo...

I never stopped pining for him. Not because he's good, but because he'd be entertaining.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

I need a team or two to bandwagon on for the playoffs. Who should I be rooting for? No NHL thread so had to post this here. First, root for the Lightning to either crap out spectacularly in the first round or dominate everyone and win it all. No in-between. Then enjoy the tears whenever the Maple L...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Now that I'm reading up on it, Podkolzin *can't* come over for 2 years. You can't even negotiate with him, he's full SKA property. And he could always choose to stay there rather than take an NHL ELC after those two years. That'd give me a long pause. You could take Bynam as a potential No. 1 D (al...

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

for those that know more of the NHL draft/international hockey than me (who knows nothing), is a trade out of #3 something the Hawks should consider? Depends on what's being offered. I don't wanna overstate by saying there's *no* difference between 3 and 8, but there's definitely 2 key guys and 5 o...

I'm particularly enjoying the fate of the LA Kings, who tanked *hard* and had their fans really embracing it, only to drop all the way from 2nd to 5th.

Re: 2018/19 Blackhawks march to the lottery

Even No. 3 is great. That's probably that Russian Podkolzin as BPA, though you could *maybe* talk yourself into Bynam if you just had to have a defenseman. Any issues with getting Podkolzin to the USA immediately? Or will he play over there for a while first? He's not ready to come over immediately...

This was only an 8.2% chance to get into the top 3, otherwise they would have stayed back at 12 or possibly worse.

if this season goes into the crapper, I think the next guy to run the show might be coming from somewhere else, and it will be a guy who has built winners on a budget.
