Re: Who Decides Which TV Shows Survive?

Some info. Surprised this is still so low tech. I know it used to be notebook based.

In the late 80s I lived with a woman who had the cable TV routed through a Nielsen box. When it was turned on, I would have to say it was me watching [more]

Re: Whoa ??

warll,

I find it interesting that you are so confident in your knowledge of how many thugs, and how well-armed, will show up at someone else's door.

No, you don't find it interesting. You just want to dismiss it. Can [more]

Happy to. Again.

SO....where do you stop? six rounds? 8 rounds? 10 rounds.

I'd go with six.


So where do you stop? 2 guns? 3 guns? 4 guns, 18 guns?

Re: My GM hat

Any other I should look at? Won't be useful for teams still with major RFAs like Winnipeg, TB, or Calgary as those guys are 'currently' off the depth charts.

Re: McAvoy Signed

And Carlo.

All set.

Honestly going to be tough for younger players to break into this defensive core, even with Miller and Moore hurt still.

Didn't get close is relative. The leafs lost in 7 games to a team that itself made it to game 7 of the cup final. I think if they got past Boston, they would have got past Columbus and Carolina too.

The public.

Ratings combined with production costs, pipeline, staffing contracts, etc.

Re: So ... Marner is signed

On the positive, the Leafs have 6 forwards signed for 4 or more years. Not many teams can say that. The negative is the defense will reset, probably every year, but you do have Reilly for 3. They will need to find a young goalie, as I don't think [more]

McAvoy Signed

Better cap hit than I expected, but short term. Long term (6 to 8 that bought UFA years) would have been a problem for the current cap (and signing Carlo too). The contract when expired leaves McAvoy as still an RFA, but escalates in the last year so [more]

Giving Toronto 3 of the top 5 or 6 salaries in the league.

So ... it looks like all in for this year. I don't know that you can have 3 $10M plus contracts and still have depth, but ... they do this year. And .... only one defenseman [more]
