So, lose to LA, then beat the crap out of Calgary and Edmonton, then get a better lottery pick than them. :roll:
0-4 to finish please.
Loser!
Can I just take a moment to say.. it's just fucking sports, dude. Like honestly. :lol:

At the end of the day who gives a fuck if the team wins or loses out of a meaningless season - this is garbage time my friend, the last half of the third period of a game where the team got stomped by a legit hockey team (or to step out of the analogy, the entire rest of the league).

Who gives a fuck if a fan, wholly unconnected to said sports team, determines that losing out or winning out is better.

Who gives a fuck about your taunting on that particular subject?

Who?

:eh:

At the end of the day nothing Meds or you or I (but especially Meds) thinks about this team or league affects them, or even matters, really. The league is a cartel of owners protecting their financial and other interests and the way they do so produces perverse outcomes like the one in which there are five or six teams who, by losing as much as possible over the last few weeks, can secure a better position in the entry draft (where there can be a huge dropoff in talent after any of those positions.. 1-5 or 6.. in any given year).

You can go on about this or that culture, and be largely right with respect to how the actual hockey team manages its affairs (if hilariously misguided when applying the same reason to how the peanut gallery views them) while still missing out on the fact that you're basically just pissing into the wind.

This season is difficult to swallow. Hopefully a winning culture can be reemployed here.
Hopefully from April to September, Benning is as good as we all hope he is.
Not long ago, we were a desirable place to be. Not so much now.
Between Trevor and Jim, there has to be a serious attempt at restoring that.
I wonder how many players with no trade or limited no trade clauses would have Vancouver on their lists?
My bet would be not half as much as before.
Great! Just what everyone wanted to hear, more pessimism.
Just a thought :cry:

Ottawa pounding the Bruins 4-1. Can't say I mind watching the Bruins flame out on the last day of the regular season.

I swear I get more enjoyment out of a Bruin loss than a Canuck win. I would cheer for the Russians vs Bruins. And Marshit deserves to be finally taken out, shot, and pissed on.

Babcock wants a Leafs win or everyone is fired, do it for Detroit.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Columbus is tanking, 3-0 for Hawks already. Looks like we might have to lose.
