Imagine being a first responder and you’ve got drunk Euge just yelling over your shoulder telling you how to respond, or grabbing your first aid kit out of your hands because he needs to sell it before you use it. Or calling you up at 2 in the morning to drunkenly hit on your wife. Or you.

Also lol that Ottawa was 1 goal away from making the SCF last season.

And people were super super sure that Ottawa was a power on the rise and would be contending this year...

I mean I didn't pay attention to them that much but was it just "not actually as talented as people thought" or injuries or just crappy coaching and a dumb cheap owner

Consensus among people worth paying attention to was that their run was Cinderella-esque. IIRC pre-season expectations were Atlantic #3-4~ and possible Wild Card depending on EK health.

IIRC they were the only playoff team to make it with a negative goal differential in the regular season. They were pretenders the whole way.

They were basically a top-tier playoff team with Karlsson on the ice, and a top-5 pick quality team with Karlsson off the ice.

This year, goaltending stopped covering the faults when Karlsson was off the ice, and also decided to let in a ton of goals when Karlsson was on the ice.

The official reason he gave was because of the growing kids leagues in Colorado were better than the other place he thought about going.

To really twist the knife the last time I watched Tampa on TV Jim Hughson talked about the huge amount of growth between when Tampa entered the league compared to now and how it's become one of the best southern U.S. minor kids' league scenes. Oh well. Iggy will probably go to the HOF, at least.

Oilers are going to trade away McDavid for prospects and pics to *checks notes* the Habs, where he does terrible shortly after the trade, ultimately missing the playoffs, again. A third team, *checks notes again* the Lightning, pull off one of the pieces from the Oilers for more prospects.

Unlike Colorado, the Oilers proceed to be a lottery team, again.

The oilers will get the first pick in every draft until the franchise folds and will still never play for a cup.

I read this (pretty bad) fiction about an expansion team in Cleveland and I'm pretty sure the owner ran a waste disposal company with green trucks, hence the eventual team name being "Big Green". In this case the truth is definitely stranger than fiction.

Became famous by claiming the government of Canada would literally arrest you for using gendered pronouns, and has built up a cult-like following of mostly young, white, sexually-frustrated men by telling them that women are Maoism and are literally plotting to murder all right-thinking men. From there he's become increasingly unhinged and crazy and draws wacky pictures of women and dragons labeled CHAOS while espousing Bush-era Christian conservative beliefs.

Basically what I'm saying is that Josh Ho-Sang should kick his rear end. (Barzal or Peterson, tbh)
