    Tuukka opts out of the rest of the season

    I'm referring to the way it was announced: "Rask opts out." His statement also made it seem like there was nothing wrong, which is his prerogative, but contributed to the way it was perceived.

    Tuukka opts out of the rest of the season

    I don't understand why they didn't handle the media part of this, which they all knew was going to be a major story, better. Had the Bruins advised him to go and we'll handle the media part of this, they could have announced: "Tuukka has had to leave the bubble to attend to a family emergency...

    Tuukka opts out of the rest of the season

    I’ve never been a fan of Rask’s dating back to the Flyers loss in 2010. In my opinion, he always seems to come up small in the biggest moments. However, isn’t it possible to dislike the athletic capabilities of the man and hope that he retires (or at least doesn’t play for the Bruins any more)...

    Game 2 - Bruins vs. Canes

    Is there an alternate channel or are we stuck with the CHI-VGK game until it ends?

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    Regarding luxury tax reset (or not) I cited above (luxury-tax rules will revert back to 2019; there is no "resetting" of the luxury tax for clubs in 2020), Pete replied with the very definitive: "I do not think that is true."

    MLB 2020: We're Playing, but We Can't Agree on Anything

    I read this little tidbit today: "Also, for numbers fans: There will be no revenue sharing this season because there is too little revenue to share. Luxury-tax rules will revert back to 2019; there is no "resetting" of the luxury tax for clubs in 2020." Link: View...

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    Do you think the Nationals regret rolling the dice with Rendon and having him leave “for nothing” at the end of the season?

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    So if our payroll was $185 you think we’d still have made this trade? Who’s delusional now?

    Betts/Price to LA for Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong

    Bloom said the CBT was “not a major factor” in the trade. Are you f’n kidding me?!???

    I lost one of the small pads in my goalie pants that attach by velcro to the outside of the thighs (inside the pants obviously). I have googled it and looked at a lot of hockey equipment websites but came up empty. Any suggestions?

    Price to the DL

    IANAD, but could be the cause of his tingling fingers and numbness he suffered last year.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    I am very emotional about this - the hype videos are making it dusty in here. I don't know if it is the realization that this awesome season ends tonight or the appreciation of the time I have spent with my sons watching yelling and hugging or what happened to Papi (and that he is okay and I am...

    Round 3: Bunch of Jerks - The Return of the Dougie

    Anyone else remember Johnny Peirson's comment on missed wide open nets? "Oh, he'll be seeing that one in his dreams tonight, Fred." I don't know why that sticks with me, but it always struck me funny. Oh and he is still alive - 93 years old!

    Gm 3 - CBJ 4/30

    I vote for a fully functional cannon that is not fired again after puck drop. Until September.
