  1. Carolina Hurricanes low-balled Chuck Kaiton on a new contract and he is out as franchise's radio broadcaster after 39 years in Hartford & Raleigh. Sad to hear. https://www.newsobserver.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/luke-decock/article214456059.html

    AHL competing with NHL

    Would Cleveland's logo have Herman, Lily, Grandpa, Eddie or Marilyn in it? Or would they use a logo of the whole family? When the two San Diego Gulls teams played each other in San Diego, would the teams use separate locker rooms? Or would they just all cram into the one San Diego Gulls home locker room? If the Houston Rockets' owner relocates NHL team like Arizona or Carolina to Houston, where would the Houston Aeros move? Jerry Bruckheimer and David Bonderman and Oak View Group just turned in their completed NHL expansion application and a $10 million deposit. If Seattle looks like it is going to get a NHL team, why would the Admirals want to leave Milwaukee? Would New York Thunder share Madison Square Garden with NHL Rangers, share new Belmont arena with NHL Islanders, share Prudential Center with NHL Devils, share Barclays Center with NBA Nets, or move into N*****au Coliseum when Islanders leave for Belmont?
  3. You are expecting big news in either June, or else September? Why so long for big news? Wasn't it you who wrote: What happened to "big" announcement up in Ottawa 10 days ago? What do the people you know inside XL Center tell you about the "big" Ottawa announcement that happened on January 25? What did that have to do with Hartford? Was it a good announcement for Hartford?
  4. Where do you see the Ottawa Senators fitting in to Hartford's revitalization? I mean, yesterday it was you who posted: So, how did that press conference in Ottawa go today?
  5. During the announcement today, Mr. McMahon said the new XFL season would start at the end of January or beginning of February. With a 10 game season and two semi-final games and a championship game, new XFL season would probably end in the middle of April. I have to say that Mr. McMahon looked and sounded a lot older then 72 today. He might not make it to 2020, let alone relaunch the XFL in 2020.
  6. Yep. It looks like Senators and National Capital commission have come up with an "agreement in principle". I bet that's what gets announced tomorrow. http://ottawasun.com/news/local-news/garrioch-ncc-and-rendezvous-lebreton-have-reached-agreement-in-principle-for-flats-development/wcm/0a36615f-8a87-44c5-8f70-6ccb3ad646f0
  7. Rumor is Ottawa Senators and National Capital Commission are expected to make announcement about Senators' negotiations with National Capital Commission to secure land in Ottawa's Lebreton Flats neighborhood for new arena for the NHL team. Lebreton Flats is a neighborhood right next to downtown Ottawa. Once a land agreement is in place, then Senators owners Melnyk can start organizing financing for arena and other parts of big development he has planned for Lebreton flats neighborhood.
  8. According to the graphic you posted, in Waterbury the line for License and Non-Driver ID Transactions is nine people longer than the Registration Transactions line.
  9. My Dad has been consulting with client based out of Los Angeles. Yesterday, he was at a meeting at a law firm there and overheard a conversation that included the words Seattle and NHL and domain and registration. Turns out that this law firm is called Gibson Dunn Crutcher and does work with Oak View Group. Oak View Group is company that is renovating Key Arena in Seattle. Anyway, my Dad says that the people who want to bring NHL to Seattle have registered a bunch of team name domains. Domains are for Seattle Cougars, Seattle Eagles, Seattle Evergreens, Seattle Kraken, Seattle Rainiers, Seattle Renegades, Seattle SeaLions, Seattle Seals, Seattle Sockeyes, Seattle Totems and Seattle Whales. If Seattle gets NHL team, it better not be named the Seattle Whales!
  10. Here's hoping that everyone out here has a Merry Christmas and that the New Year brings you a lot of happiness. Best wishes to you and your families.

    Yeah, I don't talk hockey at all. Crazy crowd for return of hockey to Worcester last Sa****ay night. ECHl team up there pulled in more than 12000 people!

    I am not "taking the word" of anybody, jerseydiehardwhaler. I have made up my own mind about why I think it would be waste of time to meet Mark in person. I have made up my mind based on the way Mark insults people on this message board over and over and over and over again. I have made up my mind based on the way he calls people "idiot" and "imbecile" and "moron" and "dip$hit" on this message board over and over and over and over again. I do not think that is the way a mature adult should act. I do not think his insults do anything to make this message board a better place. And if Mark is really the great guy you say he is in person then I wonder why he acts like such an insulting bully on a message board. Why the need for two personalities? We all have choices in life about who we want to share our time with. I choose not to spend time meeting people and sharing time with people who regularly insult people. I choose not to spend time meeting people and sharing time with people who call other people "morons" and "dip$hits" and "imbeciles" and "idiots". I choose not to spend time meeting people and spending time with people who - if you are telling the truth about Mark being a great guy in person - have two different personalities. One that they use on message board and another they use in person. I choose to spend the time in my life with my wife and my parents and my friends and my co-workers and my fellow volunteers who act like mature adults and don't insult people. It is that simple.

    Based on the way you act out here, why would anyone want to go up to you at a game? So you can call them "moron" and "dip$hit" and "imbecile" and "idiot" in person? Yeah, that sounds like it would be a blast.

    I wouldn't be interested in a steel cage match. Wrestling was never my thing. I played soccer and basketball in college. I play rugby and row crew now. And based on the way Mark acts out here I don't think the two of us would be exchanging cordial pleasantries in person.
