 That person is quite simply not smart


 I would not offer EK a big long term deal until he is checked out by a number of the best doctors available. Scary thought but he may never be the player he was. I certainly hope that's not the case.

Your logic is smart. 


 It's a tricky situation. 

Franchise player, going into the final year of a "steal of a contract" and pending UFA so he can decide to test the market if he wants to.  He's only 27, but coming off an injury that you don't know if he'll ever be the same.

His performance in the playoffs last year was off the charts while playing on a fractured foot. What has changed this year?

Is is the injury not healing like it should?  The loss of Methot and he hasn't gelled with Oduya? The coach?  Would a new coach bring life back into his game?  Will Duchene ever score a GWG?

ok, that's insane. 600 games for Karlsson, and he's only 27. Imagine if he hadn't had all the injuries... he's be playing 1000 by the time he's 30

Basically, a universal basic income is a set amount that everyone receives from the government every month, regardless of your income or situation. The idea is that everyone gets the basic amount they need to pay for basic necessities, and then anything you earn from employment is for luxuries or additional buying power.

There have been quite a few pilots run on the idea around the world, including some running right now here in Ontario.


 Thx Kat, I appreciate that


 The idea, and the real concern for testing it out now in particular is really tied to the number of jobs that are starting to disappear with automation.  In theory, if it works, jobs would eventually pay less (since you would need less employment income to equal your current standard of living), homelessness would be virtually eliminated, and people would feel a lot more secure to take risks with their careers.

If you knew that no matter what choices you make, you would always have enough money to pay rent and buy groceries, a lot of people would probably live their lives quite differently.

Thompson who is at best a borderline 4th liner with another year on his contract and a modified no trade and Oduya a 7th or 8th Defenseman with no future with your team.
Unless this is to showcase moving one or both out the heck from Pan's team this is beyond useless and at best stupid.

OK, no more sympathy for Boucher after this move

Claesson and White are scratched for Thompson and Oduya--From Twitter

As seen on Twitter:

Package I would find acceptable for Erik Karlsson:
A first-round pick.
A second-round pick.
Your best prospect.
Your second-best prospect.
Your best roster player.
Your owner.
Your arena, but in my city.
You make it so Ottawa won the Stanley Cup in 2007.
A universal basic income.

Any thoughts? and what is a universal basic income


It's one of those socialist ideas you 'Muricans don't believe in.  

 

Also, Puck drop!

4-1 for whoever they are playing against. A former Sen will score GWG. Groundhogs are stupid.
