Anybody else bothered by the fact that Chris Pronger's contract was traded this weekend and he was elected into the HHoF?

Hard to believe how many lock-outs we've witnessed just to keep on doing the same stupid crap. Zero sympathy for the owners ever. They're the victims of their own subterfuge, always have been, always will be.

I'm probably just bitter over the whole Kovalchuk contract debacle, but the NHL sucks at applying it's policies equitably.

Ridiculous that he is paid by the NHL and still has an active player contract, too. THAT ALONE is against the rules.

Wow, a lot of changes for a lot of teams today. Of course, TSN is barely acknowledging any of them. Aside from Phil Kessel to the Pens, that is.

Well, being explicitly against the CBA isn't the same as going against the spirit of the CBA, so it's all good ;-)

Pretty interesting stuff. A lot of big names (as big as this FA class gets, anyway) changing places. Should make for an interesting season.

I'm glad the Devils are largely staying out of things. They're in full rebuild, at least with Shero at the helm, they finally accepted it, instead of the perennial overpaying a bunch of guys in the hopes of becoming a playoff bubble team. As much as it's going to suck to watch, this team needs a few garbage years so they can restock the system.

I can see Kessel scoring a goal per game for the first thirty, then disappearing for twenty, then going on another binge to end the season. Edmonton made some decent moves today. I'm just glad they didn't sign Belesky or Mike Green.

Kessel should be a beast on that team. The Penguins' window with this core to win more Cups is pretty much now, so they need to make as much of it as they can.

Edmonton made some decent moves today. I'm just glad they didn't sign Belesky or Mike Green.

Beleskey is this year's Clarkson. The Bruins have made one head scratcher after another this offseason.

Mike Green is actually pretty good if you consider him solely as an offensive defenseman and a powerplay quarterback. Not exactly what the Oilers need, though.

I agree totally. While I'd love to see Green get forty assists playing with Hall and McDavid, Edmonton needs more of a well balanced vet who can excel on both the PK and PP. Andrej Sekera may never put up Green like numbers, but his overall game suits Edmonton well. He's a solid number two defenseman on a team where there's nobody even established as a clear cut number three guy.

    • Hi! I am looking at replacing my PING i20 irons (having "old school lofts") with something more forgiving. Problem is that the Game Improvement irons I can find have stronger lofts, and that does not match my other clubs. For example, I have already taken out my i20 4 iron and added a 7 wood. If I were to buy a set with 3 degrees stronger loft, then the new 5 iron would be appr. the same length as the 7 wood (assuming stronger lofts give more yards). And at the other end, the new PW would leave a gap to my 52 degree gap wedge. So, I would actually need to buy UW, PW, 9i, 8i, 7i and 6i to match the other clubs in the bag! So my question is, can I get forgiveness without stronger lofts? Thanks for any input!
    • Glad to see you're a guy that speaks up. It doesn't happen often, but I also have no issue speaking to others who have no consideration for others wanting to share the facilities fairly.
    • Hi Ace: I will end up missing all the posts of the NONSENSE at this club....at least I still have 3 more weeks to be able to read about the TOOLS at this club until June 30...... your last day there....it's run by a bunch of IDIOTS. The starter is a CLOWN. Talk about CLOWN's....my last 2 rounds I played like a CLOWN/mental midget. On Tuesday I played with a friend...we played skins....at least I won 15 skins.....I shot 37 on the front 9 and then played like a GOOF on the back 9 ....a 46 with 4 doubles.....my chipping and pitch shots are GARBAGE...chunks and skulls.....I was 39 yards for my 3rd shot on the par 5...16th hole...ended up with a double....duh. Played today on the other course.....another CLOWN round by in reverse order....shot 44 on the front 9 with 4 doubles again....then shot 37 on the back 9......I joined up with an older couple to start my round....they are members and quit after 9....so here I am playing as a single on the back 9 behind 4 CLOWN's in 4 carts and with a 4some behind me.....on the 15th tee the 4some caught up to me...so I asked them if they wanted to play as a 5some to finish off the round which we did.....I hate playing alone....even as a 5some we were waiting on the 4some on the final 4 holes.  Courses here are so busy it's nearly impossible to play under 4.5 hours. The weather here is a bit cool....65*F only....and after Monday......7 days of rain...ugh.....playing on Monday with the guy from Tuesday. Have fun playing Paako with hubby this weekend.
    • I've been using this Iain Highfields tip on range, people maybe look at me weird when I place the balls 2 meters behind the hitting area, but I look back at them weird when they rake. 😄  
    • I spend about 80 or 90% of my golf time at the range or practice areas (green and trap) so I see all of the above from time to time. I have to say though, that the unwritten rule of three practice balls on the green is adhered to more often than not. It's usually someone new that will dump 15 on the green and go to town. It's annoying, but I bite my tongue because one of the cranky old regulars will invariably emerge from the cigar smoke-choked grillroom, stroll up with his putter and his drawstring Chivas Regal bag of practice Dunlops, and set the newbie straight.
