Congratulations to the Puck Warfare organization on their victory in the Toilet Bowl and being the Reject Cup Champions of the 2017-18 season.

The Reject Cup Champions are celebrated as the best of the worst. It's sort of like being the smartest child of Donald Trump.

The travel excuse is especially untenable in the playoffs. First of all, it would be the same for both teams, secondly, they have private ****ing jets now.

not when you think about the fans. Does the league want half the Leafs' playoff games starting at 10PM in the Eastern time zone and the LA Kings game starting at 4:30 PM on a Tuesday Pacific time in the 1st round ?

that is a link to our new live scoreboard that is ready for Public Beta.

I suggest leaving the sound on tomorrow night when the games are going on

Ashley has been working on this for many many hours over the last couple weeks with my feedback. This is great preparation work for building the new website.

This is separate from the final game scores that I run in the mornings

There still be some tweeks and features added over the next week and there will probably be some hiccups.

You just leave that page open on game nights and it will update every 30 seconds on it's own. You don't need to refresh it.

I'd never vote conservative, but it really seems to be that Liberal politicians are held to personal and political ethics much higher than that of conservatives.

I'm talking generally, though Wynne and Trudeau certainly come to mind. It's just kind of assumed conservatives are dishonest about their motives and personal ethics and liberals are all goody two-shoes so if they do something approximately the same, the liberal gets excoriated and middle-ground people like many of you bust them for corruption, while it's just kind of water off a ducks back for conservatives.

Again, this is not specific to the Fords, who are obviously way past anything reasonable and even conservative-leaning people I know (including people in this thread!) have not been shy to point that out.

I just chatted with Daniel about this and we both think that the cleanest thing is to include the Leaf Washington game with Saturday even if it's played on Sunday.

Now if it's cancelled entirely and not played at all this weekend teams can put in a lineup in the AHL forum that covers no Leafs or Washington players being available to them since we can't wait to have a result for our playoffs.

I will post the draft order and lottery odds either tonight or Wednesday and I should have an updated draft picks and money page done at some point on Wednesday.

I plan on doing the draft lottery on Thursday night at 8PM Toronto time in Slack. It's best to get it done early this year I think. I'll be reaching out before 8 to some teams to help me with the random draw.

I have no issue with proper complaints but when it is the constant stale ones than I close my eyes and stop reading

I also love the trade talk at poker in port perry. I believe the seeds of a trade with Biatch the year he won sitting at the bar

you would have loved the early days of the league

Daniel, Tony B, Serge and myself playing in games at the charity casinos. Darrell, maybe Swacker Dave or Bryan dealing and sometimes playing. Other players at the table telling us to shut the fuck up about our stupid fantasy hockey league.

no pickup claims this week. Not even any by Serge of players who aren't eligible.

We are saying the same thing, but you say it a little differently. You don't need to designate them a "Toews Rule" player specifically since those players are labeled based on their number of games played. Its as simple as "any player you call up from the farm before the draft will not count against your cap."
What you are looking to add is the flexibility of maybe drafting a player and undoing the call up to make room. For me the key is to ensure you aren't burning a free year by taking a risk and calling up a rookie early.

I'm not sure that we're really saying the same thing, I think you're complicating it.

My suggestion is to simply designate a player as a Toews Rule player which puts them in limbo along with the automatic Toews Rule players where they don't count as one of your 20 farm players, they don't count as one of your 23 skaters at the auction and they don't count against the money you have available at the auction to sign your team. To me what you are describing is that they are part of the 23 skaters but their salary doesn't count which is different.

an update on catching up on scores. I'm working tomorrow as well so my plan is to get all the lineups in the system and scores done on Sunday.
