I miss this. I'm not sure when it became acceptable for people to schedule stuff on Sunday but my daughter has lacrosse practice from 1-2 and my son has it from 1:30-330. On top of that my beer league schedule us a "play-in" game today at 5pm ( we suck this year and came in 8th and have to play the 9th place team to see who is lucky enough to get trounced by the number 1 team in the first round). I'll stop complaining but I sat around all day yesterday with nothing to do. I thought Saturday was the day to do stuff and Sunday was to relax and veg in front of the TV all afternoon.
Looks like I'll DVR this game and wear headphones all day to try to avoid hearing the score before I finally get a chance to watch the game tonight. An exercise in futility, I'm sure, but I'll give it a shot.
Yeah I hate doing stuff on Sunday, besides playing a sport (don't even have one going right now). Sunday is a day of laziness and doing nothing.
It's long weekend here, I am a bachelor, and I will thoroughly enjoy the amount of alcohol I'm going to be able to drink today and night.
Agree 100%. No reason for it. If you want physical, you sit Nisky and play Elmer and Bort. Real simple. Both of those guys have physical stature and some nasty in their game. Niskanen has neither. This to me smacks of a guy being held out because of a potential trade. Makes no sense at all to sit Despres for the reason given, and they know this better than any of us. It would make sense to play Niskanen big minutes like the other night, if your goal is to let someone scout him.
Also, if you want to read into it, the following Western scouts are in attendance at FNC: Minnesota, Anaheim, LA, Edmonton, Colorado, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, St. Louis.
Thanks for the update.
Minnesota and Colorado both there.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
