for sure. Though I think the bigger ice will hurt us in that regard. Quick will need to be amazing. And he can be.

Do you have a license to carry that optimism around with you, sir? Optimism is a very dangerous thing in the wrong hands.

Let me see your ID please, sir. Go stand over there by the ditch and don't move until I tell you to.

Thank you for this. Now I understand why you are the Chancellor.

(Also, sorry about Vitale getting the Olympic snub. He will captain 2018, so no worries ).

Saw your Olympic hopeful James Neal today in Whitby (his hometown just outside of Toronto) at an auto-detailing shop near my work. He has a beautiful brand new white Ferrari 458 coupe with black rims and yellow calipers. Snapped a couple picks on the BB, but I'm not sure if it's against forum rules to post pictures of players personal vehicles. Pennsylvania plates on the car.

Must be nice to be young and rich

Beau's gonna need to be more than a third liner in order to crack the USA roster. I doubt he'll be anything more than that this year under Bylsma. If by some miracle, Bennett plays with Malkin and Neal, then he has a slight chance, provided he completely lights it up. I'd put his chances at under 10%, even in the latter case.

That said, it would make my life if Beau made it. The USA could use a Beauner, if you get what I'm saying.

Truth comes in many forms. Sometimes truth is a Joe. Sometimes it is Beau. But it's always in the name of freedom loving peoples everywhere. Ambassador Beauner (this may be my new title if Joe ever gets traded) will show the people of Sochi that not all red, white and blue flags are created equal. Glory be upon him.

That group of performance artists is bad even by punk standards So, I'm guessing in this perfect world of Beau they'll learn to be real musicians with the name change, eh?

Obviously meant BlackBerry. Should have just said Z10

Anyways, car was there again. He came by and picked it up this morning. I'm always surprised to see the size of atheletes, but man is he big. Not only is he tall, he's clearly into his offseason workouts.
