  1. Three free tickets for tonight's game, first one to email me gets them.

    Are they still available? Asking for a friend.

    (1). I think it was still considered illegal to improperly resell sports tickets when Hardball came out. (2). The actor who plays the Black Panther was in Hardball.

    That is the Hollywood view of the DOD's approach to initial and continuous training of troops. The breakdowns are not from beatings and living in tough or squalor, but through understanding the situation(s) and how to leverage or overcome, how to be a team member, and understanding roles. That does not include hard tough love, but conversation and re-enforcement\training of expectations and execution. The DOD has spent a ton of money on developing effective troops, and a fair ton of the sociology and psychology studies were paid for by the DOD. They learned this as part of WWII, and really re-enforced and acted on those studies and new studies since the 80's. Current troops being deployed over the last 10 years have had a far less stressful entry into service than I had in 1990, where beatings still existed.

    Hmm, Sociology and Psychology says otherwise.... especially with humiliation or worse.
  5. How the Hawks Get Better

    Hawks get better by not being eliminated before the last full week of March...

    For Barker that early ankle injury pretty much sealed his fate. It seemed to plague him from pretty much every season in the NHL except for 08-09 where he had the showing of what he could be...then another ankle injury.

    I highly suspect that as much as the other GM's and Exec's gripe at the "Cap Circumventing" contracts nothing new will come out of it against the Hawks. There was nothing within the rules that did not allow it at the time that those contracts were signed. Sure there is always the "spirit" of the contract angle; however, since league basically said not more with these contracts and letting all of the other "cap circumventers" that are not long playing slide, I highly doubt anything will come about with the Hossa contact that will penalize the 'Hawks. Too much precedence from the league and Hossa has a medical issue.

    Preds have a solid team, and they have looked determined all season. Of course, going 9-0-1 over you last 10 games helps. I am pretty sure the Preds would prefer a matchup against COL, DAL, or any of the Pacific teams in the hunt over the Wild.

    Preds are first team to qualify for a playoff spot!

    I've heard that before with the T&K contracts. My problem with the story is that they completely had the upper hand in the negotiations. If they really wanted less, they could have made that happen.

    Look up those teams and see how stacked they were. There were quite a few "short" term NHL players on the 3rd\4th lines and they were platooning down at that level. I agree with your statement that the players they had were perfect for that system and perfect for controlling the type of shots that Marty faced (low numbers at his "weak" side). Those top two lines had the lions share of the minutes. I also believe that they put a ton of emphasis on the overall quality of their D-men....which I firmly believe is a major breakpoint for teams.

    Vancouver and Arizona officially eliminated from playoffs

    The NJ Devils might be a counter to the winning a cup with two good lines and a great goalie....that 02-03 season had only 3 players with 20 or more goals, and no one hit 30, and one of them was Jeff Friesen. They also only had 13 players play more than 70 games and one was Marty. 99-00 cup win was a bit better with 4 players with 20 or more goals. and 5 others with 10-19 goals.

    I would like picks that are not already injured or don't get injured in camp
