Bad Kids Hockey Coaches
I'm so tired of bad kid-level house league recreational coaches. You know who I'm talking about. The coach coaching 7-8 year old kids and telling a 15 year old ref how to do his job. He so wants to win that he gives some kids 8 shifts while giving othe lesser skilled kids 4 shifts. My son has only played two years, but I see this problem in most of coaches in his recreational league. Pathetic!

Today, we made some big changes to the site to make it better for mobile users. We've still got a lot of work to do, but you might have noticed some changes already. Some of the changes are solely preparation for a bunch of new profile features that we will be adding in the next few weeks.

Brian Burke in TO
After six months of speculation, the rumor that Brian Burke is the next GM of the Maple Laughs is near. Tampering? Obvious. Hard to prove.

Maple Leafs Eval
One month into the season and the Leafs don't suck. In fact, I'm predicting better things as the year progresses. Ron Wilson is a great coach and this team is only gonna get better. Unfortunately, better means 9th or 10th place. I don't see the playoffs in our near future.

Toskala has struggled early and like previous years I expect his game to pick up. Joseph has been horrible. Pogge is doing any better with the Marlies.

Kaberle and Kubina and struggling with a young defense. Van Ryn and Collaiocovo have looked great, but continue to be injury prone. The D-kids have looked great.

Gabrovsky has looked amazing after a slow start. We have two scoring lines? When did that happen last? And Blake has been awful as always.

Lot's of good new, but I still expect no playoff. Another 9th place finish will make Fletcher look real bad.

The Tucker release is still disappointing. We have to eat 60% of his salary for the next 6 years. We could've eaten Raycroft's salary with the Marlies, but chose to put it against the Leafs for 2 years. We lost half of the Marlies defense that looked great in last years Calder run. More bad decision.

We sign Fingers? He looks like McCabe without the bullet shot. Too many bad decisions. Sorry Fletch, loved you the first time around.

It's Just Practice for the Pistons
So the Pistons just traded Billups for Iverson. There goes a great franchise. Both Billups and Iverson are great players, but Billups does all the little things that makes a team win, whereas Iverson does only the big me things that makes him the target of jokes. Sorry Pistons, but you just lost premium NBA team status.

X-Leafs Coach

Six of the NHL's 30 current head coaches were drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

  1. Joel Quenneville
  2. Ron Wilson
  3. Randy Carlyle
  4. Bruce Boudreau
  5. John Anderson
  6. Peter Deboer

via Wade (my brother) and Kevin. Thanks!

More weirdness is that 3 of the 30 coaches were born in the average sized city of Windsor, Ontario.

McCain Consension Speech
Was awesome! What a great guy. I knew going into this election that I couldn't lose. McCain was my favorite candidate from the right and Obama was my second favorite from the left. Remember today. A black person, nigro, nigger, etc. is the president elect. Congrats to every person who has ever been discriminated against. Today proves that you can overcome that discrimination and that most of us are with you, not against you. Black rocks! And congrats to McCain for running a great campaign that was sidetracked by Americas hatred for George W Bush, the worst president in the history of the United States.
