To bring the discussion back to more hockey-related matters (pucking as opposed to .....)


Samsonov solid again last evening and now has 12 wins.  I thought it was pretty impressive when Copley had 16 wins last year.  Samsanov may blow right by that.  When your backup goalie might be responsible for up to 40 standings points, THAT is one way to finish high up in the standings.


We are now headed out of, rather than into, the regular season woods, and Samsanov to this point has given us absolutely no reason why we shouldn't refuse to pay Holtby multi-millions and go with him instead.  Of course, this would be only a temporary respite.  If we go with Samsanov as the new starting goaltender, within the next few years we will likely be paying HIM several million AAV.
What we’ve seen from Samsonov is not a good enough sample size to be confident in letting Holts walk.  But given how fucked our salary is, well have little choice.


We can’t assume Samsonov will just step in for Holts and we won’t miss a beat. Like any hot young goalie, there is a very big chance that he will level-off if not fall off all together in his first full season if not the next.   It’s like Chuck Barkley said, “There’s no such thing as a sophomore slump, it’s called ‘they have tape on your butt’”


Sammy may well be our future goalie, but we can’t be confident on how good that future will be for a few years

So I finally got up the nerve to click the link about Facebook gender terms.  After reviewing and giggling and shaking my head at some of the idiocy, I think I discovered....


what Puck might have inadvertently romanced into that night was some leaky "genderfluid"  :lol:

The Duke himself said “never apologize”.   So did Shaft

Sensitivity is a fault and character flaw, not a responsibility for others to not placate and manage said flaws in others.

Being responsible for ones feelings is basic psychology.  This society needs to “Man The Fuck Up”!!!!


 I think I’m mostly with you on that DC. 👍
I don’t have a “never” apologize philosophy. Simply said, I’m not perfect.  But I also don’t go around apologizing for every little thing that bothers somebody. There’s probably more of that, “I’m a victim“, “” I need you to apologize“,  crap in our society, then ever before. Like you said they’re responsible for their own life that is, it’s their problem!👍


As I claim, I stood behind what I’ve said.  I do, however, acknowledge that there are people that are a little more sensitive.
My apology was ONLY for just not warning them first. AND, I will add that I don’t think they SHOULD be sensitive! Especially not in today’s world   But I can’t change the fact they still exist, thus, I throw a little acknowledgment their way!
 And I don’t apologize for that either, BIG DOG!!🤣😂😂


Hell, I wish they’d all man up, I get it!
 They probably won’t… And we will both still be here doing our thing!!👍

WARNING ✋‼️( now it’s on you, if you read any further)!


Lmfao, Alta.
It could’ve been the same girl, but no big fake tits. Although she may have had surgery at a later time!
I believe her name was Karen maybe? She was super skinny, (like coke-whore skinny), and crack wasn’t around yet, in those days, so she wasn’t like, extremely emaciated!😆😆


Small correction, buddy. There was no “crapping on the bed”! (Yuck!). To be clear, just a little “residue”, on me!!🤣😂🤣  AND THAT WAS ENOUGH, to make my mind up,  right then and there!🤮🤮


Man ALTA, I thought I’D been around the block a time or two!
You GO, boy!

Agree. Sammy has been better than Holts this year, but we can't say for certain that he will be better than Holts going forward. Reason why I want Sammy to get a lot more starts is because I think we've gotta look ourselves in the mirror and accept that $10 million a year for Holtby just isn't worth it given Holtby's decline over the past few years, and not to mention we don't have the space. We could save significant cap space by leaning more on a much much cheaper Sammy. If needed, get another decent goalie at like $4-5 million per, use the extra cap space to upgrade somewhere else.


Otherwise we're paying $10 million a year for a 30 year old goalie on a contract that will likely have term. He's already showed decline post-Korn. He'll decline further as he gets older. He's not going back to the Mitch Korn Vezina level days. He won us the Cup but he just caught fire at the right time, he was utter trash the rest of the year. Would rather not pay $10 million for that. No guarantee he catches fire at the right time again, no guarantee he makes those game-stealing saves at the most important times.

I think you know like I do, there’s a lot of folks out there afraid to live life.  Never taking any risks. Many are quite miserable. Some of them I actually feel sorry for!👍

There is no way the Caps are going to give Holtby 10 million a year or anywhere close to it.  If he would accept 8 million a year and not demand a no movement clause I wouldn’t be against re-signing him.

serious question.. who says Holts will get $10M per? The rumor had to start somewhere. I going to say right now there is no way in hell he gets $10. I’m gonna go out on limb here and say Holts gets $8M a year.


I said the same when the stories of Harper getting $400 started, that there was no efing way. he fell well short and looks over paid at $320. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the Nats won without him.

The 10 million figure is based on what Florida gave Bobrosky who has similar stats as Holtby and who is the same age as Holtby when he signed his contract last year.

ok, but I think Bob was overpaid too, and his stats this season show that

LoL, I'm fairly thick skinned, and there is a reason I had fraternity brothers make this my song...





I did have some standards though. I only knowingly slept with one married woman when I decided I wasn't going to be a part of that, and despite my Mary Jane usage, I didn't tolerate any other drug use by a partner other than pot. I pursued this one girl for two months before she finally agreed on a date, first one went well, the second date she took me to a party at one of her friends, the second she walked in the door her friend pulled a picture off the wall and a razor blade out of his pocket, she got first dibs, and it's the last time I ever talked to her.
