the only negative anyone had with the signing was the term - 4 years was too much for a 34 year old.
Maybe 4 years is going to be no problem. If he can keep his conditioning at an elite level, we just picked up the best available ufa dman for a fair price for a decent term
Ya, 4 years isn't ideal, but, as stated with his fitness, I would bank on him. That being said Horc was super fit to, fit doesn't help you from getting your bones broken. Any way still more than happy to have him
Sugar is an actual food/additive. An unhealthy one. Guess what pop consists mostly of?
Mainly water, followed by high fructose corn syrup (in the USA). Go elsewhere and one may find a higher sucrose content (somewhere without a powerful corn lobby).
Glad to read that Omark has returned from Switzerland as a more mature player. Hopefully Smyth is in better shape and can play better than he did last season (it would be hard to play worse). The Oilers need bottom-6 contributors. Gordon should go a long way in that regards as well.
iI'm slightly perplexed to why Keith Acton would handle the PP duties. We've had a Top-5 PP the last two years and would figure that we'd want continuity and a couch familiar with the system utilized to run it. Why fix something that isn't broken.
Following the same vein, I want to see Smyth back on the PP in front of the net. I think he can contribute to this team in some areas, but wouldn't be enthused if lots of ES minutes with Hall was one of them.
I wish we had a primer on the other lines with the lesser lights. Where was Eager, Omark, Pitlick, Jones, Chase, etc. lining up with? The only one I know of is Bilcke - Martindale - Ewanyk.
following the same vein?
more like how to contradict yourself as quickly as possible?
Soda is honestly probably worse than a bag of potato chips given the difference in insulin spikes.
That said drinking a Coke during a hockey game is no big deal. Your body is going to use the sugar instantly, it's not that much different from drinking a Gatorade sugar-wise, although the gas and stomach bloat is probably something you'd want to avoid.
Good on Ference and Eakins for wanting to clean up the locker room diets, but honestly I think gaining strength is more important than avoiding the occasional Snickers bar.
Not sure I believe that. Chara drinks pop on the bench.
He drank it in double or triple overtime to keep his sugar levels up and got fined by the league for it. Had Coke instead of Pepsi or vise versa.
Chara is a health FREAK and doesn't drink it regularly. It was a unique circumstance.
That said you guys have a consumate professional in Ference and even when he gets hurt he is worth the 2.5 M just for his locker room presence. The guy is a winner!!! I wish the Bruins found a way to keep him and hope when he is done playing he finds his way back to the Bruins front office.
