Alright, we are about a quarter of the way through the season. Some interesting headlines:
-Toronto Maple Laffs and their hilariously mediocre play. I hate the team and city with a passion, so I'll be sure to root for as much losing as possible from their point of view. Also the media meltdown is a site to behold on a daily basis, and no first round pick just makes it even more lol worthy.
-My Flames... back to purgatory. Mediocre 10-8-3 record and just not gelling at all. Gotta get shit fixed quick... and wtf happened to Johnny hockey?
-The Oilers don't suck... it is a site to behold. I'm really hoping the PDO gods strike them down, but I have a bad feeling their momentum will buoy them into the post-season.
-The Jets are not a total pile of dog shit... considering they lost their ENTRE right side of the defense, they have been very serviceable. Idk if they make the post-season, but they aren't totally awful.
-Canucks have been up and down. Middle of the road and could end up just making it or missing. Either way, they've taken huge steps this year.
-Senators... are not dead last? Honestly, they play hard and I'll give them that. 8-10 w/l record is nothing amazing, but they are far exceeding expectations. There could be some hope in the future after all (once Eugene sells the team lol)
-Habs... if you had told me two years ago this would arguably be Canada's best team that plays an uptempo style with lots of speed, I would have laughed my ass off. Me calling Bergy the worst GM in the league in the 2018 off-season aged very poorly.
I'll discuss some of the American teams tomorrow, but I'm sick af rn and I'm not feeling about to doing more rn.
Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
