Jets win, in regulation. Arizona slowly fading into the garage to grab their clubs.

Hall's look says it all. How he knew before he even played a game for the Coyotes and was getting his team picture, we will never know.

It’s photoshopped pic. I thought this had been made very clear some time ago.



Likely because he looked even sadder in the real Coyotes pic that was taken. Poor guy.

Panthers get to within 1 point of the laffs with the same number of games played.

Come onnnnnn Florida, you can't do it! Looking like it's 3rd in the Atlantic or no playoffs for the leafs or Panthers, because beyond the top 2 Atlantic teams the division is garbage being sprinkled with red wings bonus points.

Santa Clara county banning all gatherings of 1000+ people which leaves San Jose Sharks without a place to play in front of fans. I wonder if they'll change venues or play in front of empty seats.

They're the first to be affected like this and it's still ~5 weeks to playoffs so lots more can happen. I really hope we don't get screwed over from this as well.

94 Expos all over again. We're going to make the playoffs only to have them cancelled.

Except the 94 Expos were really good and the World Series against the White Sox would have been fantastic whereas the Oilers are only pretty good and their second round loss to Vegas seems almost inevitable at this point.

94 Expos? That's some extraordinary mental gymnastics to make that comparison.

Stupid Adam made me miserable looking over their roster. Good god.

A 22 year old Pedro Martinez was throwing straight GD fire and was the second best starter and held the 4th best ERA. Rojas and Wetteland were in their prime and basically unhittable late in games. Meanwhile their starters included Cliff Floyd, Wil Cordero, Marquis Grissom, Moises Alou, and peal efficiency Larry Walker.

Annoyed.

That was the beginning of the end for the Expos. They became an MLB farm team after that and fans just became disillusioned.

I had no idea about any of this. Absolutely fascinating in the worst way. I might riot if a strike just made a season disappear like that. How does that even happen?

Some notes from the NHL Board of Governors Meeting at Pebble Beach. Deals with bad things that happened during the current season; no real insights into what scheduling plans are moving forward.

https://www.nhl.com/news/commissioner-bettman-releases-state ment-on-board-of-governors-meeting/c-312371072

Kudos to the Flames for bringing the Akim Aliu case to light so that Bettman could work on the issue (apparently still being resolved).

Brandon Manning has probably played his last game as a professional in North America.

No kudos to the flames...ever. They didn't bring the Aliu situation to light...Akim Aliu did by tweeting about it after which the Flames took almost a week to fire Bill Peters. This article is from December 9th...Brandon Manning was suspended 5 games and I believe has played since then

He did. He got in a fight with the guy he called the slur to, and got thumped. Looks like he played virtually every game since he returned from suspension:

https://theahl.com/stats/player/4356

Pretty mediocre stats for a guy who's been an NHL player recently playing down a league. And -14 in 21 AHL games? I'd say it's the end of his North American career. Hard to think there's going to be a ton of interest in this guy after this.

Any surprise McD missed practices considering he didn't play last night due to illness? Stay home, rest.

Yamo had the ankle injury, I wouldn't be surprise if it's just precautionary to give him some rest.

Apparently some hockey players are the kinds of jock a-holes you would guess they are:

Recent example, Brendan Leipsic

You wonder if that's the end of the road for Leipsic. 25 years old, 4 teams in 4 years, RFA at season's end. If you're a bubble player, you can't be a distraction. Teams will tolerate it for a Kuznetsov to a point - because he's going to drive your team's chances to win. With Brendan Leipsic, you're too easy to replace, so if you're a sideshow, you get passed over.

I think if it was just the comments about women, his "kills", cocaine, and even about hating the Canucks, he might ride this out, but he also craps all over his linemates in Washington, and that's going to be hard to live down.

This is one of those moments where I feel very conflicted.

They were private messages. Booting guys off the team for being a dirtbag privately? I feel that's extreme, although maybe they were replaceable anyway. Why not work with the player? There are no learning moments anymore. There is no room for character growth. You are either a saint who hasn't been caught yet or a terrible human being and there is no going back.

I think he is free to try to find a job with another team. But, sports teams have an image to worry about. If you want to be a scumbag in private, don't let it leak and you'll be OK :) Or be an extremely good player where the team actually has to debate what will be more beneficial, keeping you and trying to help you, or just tossing you in the trash because you don't really move the needle at all.

I haven't read the leaked messages but overreaction is the new reaction to things like this. If schools aren't teaching students, especially student athletes who may one day get famous, that the things they post online are permanent then they're not doing their jobs. That being said, we were all stupid teenagers at one point, there just wasn't a permanent digital record.

These guys are all mid-20s, and these were recent discussions that were posted, not something stupid they said when they were 16.

I do think that teams should do more teaching to young players about A) the importance of being a good person as much as possible and B) the realization that as a public figure, you have to be extra careful. Cabbies might have cameras, group chats could get leaked or shared. His friend may very well have been hacked - but he still said all that, and he's still going to suffer the consequences of it. Even if that doesn't hurt him professionally - which is probably will - he's may have to go back in to a dressing room with two linemates who know he called them f-ing losers to his friends.

I wonder if the NHL can suspend him for this? They say out Avery for saying "sloppy seconds" and Kuznetsov got suspended for cocaine use...we've got both those things here.

I don’t think this should be the responsibility of schools. Parents? 100%. We talk to our kids every time they add a new social media app. It needs to be preached at home first. Secondly it’s on the employer to give some training and help these kids. They need to be told the strict guidelines they will follow and the repercussions if they don’t.

I've long thought that sports teams should be giving young players more coaching on this sort of thing. You invest so much in to these guys - especially the stars - and there's more pitfalls for them nowadays than ever. They're still young, and you won't stop everyone from doing every stupid thing, but maybe you can teach most of them to be careful to figure out who it is buying you drinks (ie. not the Hell's Angels or some other organized crime syndicate trying to get close), what you say online, what you say when someone may be filming, and above all, don't beat up cabbies when drunk. You'd like to think that some general decorum about women would be encouraged too - I think about a few of the things girls in Edmonton told me that young Oilers have said to them and I've wondered how long it is until one of them gets caught on a cell phone video with a really poor taste pick-up line...

Just because there are repercussions to a persons actions does not mean that they are not being worked with nor does it mean that it can't be a learning moment. Working with someone does not mean they are absolved from the fallout of their actions. As has been said by others, these were not children to immature to realize the consequences of their actions. These were adults who acted like children and are now facing the consequences. It can still be a learning moment and there can still be people working with them on their character growth.

There absolutely is the ability for people go come back from stupid actions like these, but it does required them to be contrite and acknowledge that they were wrong, not just because they got caught. Often it takes time for that to become obvious, the apologies that come out now seem to be motivated by an attempt to minimize repercussions, not from an honest realization that they were in the wrong. They should face punishment now because of their actions and they can be forgiven in the future if they change their behaviour.

Many people have done worse things and have been able to come back from it by actually changing and becoming better people. Others just issue an apology in the wake of their "disaster" and then act shocked when they don't change their actions and people tell them that the apology wasn't enough.

In this climate, I'd be very surprised to see Leipsic get any contracts. I have a hard time thinking a 4th liner could come back from this. The reality is that his punishment is not for his actions, but because he is of replaceable value. I think Auston Matthews did something much worse and in public, but he is irreplaceable on a hockey roster. What did he get, if anything? I'm supposed to believe that the Capitals are doing this because they actually care about the issue? This is not about what he did, this is about who did it. That's not a fair system in my opinion, but that is reality.

I just think today's climate is less and less forgiving that people make mistakes, and this is another example of it. Somebody was a dirtbag in private, I don't think that's exactly career ending worthy, but that's where we are today. Easier to ditch and end relationships than to work with people, unless you are an irreplaceable superstar or the President of the United States.

You're making the assumption that the hockey world in general wants to work to correct these types of actions. Leipsic will be sacrificed because of the public blowback, but I've yet to see one person in the hockey world come out and strongly condemn these comments. Sure, they'll say they can't defend his comments (because they're indefensible), but they'll all paint this as a couple of rogue players and not a part of the broader culture. I would guess there are very few people in the hockey world who actually want to grapple with these issues because then a lot of stones would be turned over that they would rather just stay where they are.
