Play 10 games against each team in your league, no interleague. 150 games.

I've been calling for that. There's enough talent, especially the growth in Latin America/Carribean and Asia. You see a lot of young talent contributing, also. Pitching will be the biggest issue for expansion.

The playoffs would become like the other sports - first four teams in each division make the playoffs.

"There seems to be a building consensus that baseball will soon be headed to a 32-team configuration. It will lead to major realignment and adjustments in schedule, which will allow MLB to address the growing concerns of the union about travel demands and off days.

East: Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Miami, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Washington.

North: Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, Montreal, both New York franchises and Toronto.

Midwest: Both Chicago franchises, Colorado, Houston, Kansas City, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Texas.

West: Anaheim, Arizona, Los Angeles, Oakland, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.

I thought the Celts did great, considering they lost Hayward to a Joe Theisman-type injury in the 1st Q. Thought it was going to be a blow-out, but they made a big push in Q3.

Celtics have the fuckin g.e. logo on their shoulders.

Not digging corporate logos on NBA uniforms.

That league was part of Scott Darling's path to the NHL, one year each with Louisiana Ice Gators and Mississippi River Kings.

"Southern Professional Hockey League"

Don't get me wrong. If I were a 3rd-liner in this Teir-3 league and they offered me room and baord, I'd take it.

I'll be watching that out of the corner of my eye...

The rest focused on some juicy NBA drama, with Kyrie going into Cleveland on their home opener... and with Isaih Thomas also with a chip on his shoulder... hoping he has the chance to "accidently" run into Danny Ainge.

Going to the Habs-Sharks game tonight. Last Montreal win in San Jose was 1999... the Roadrunners were there as we had like 5-6 guys from Montreal on that team (and another Albertan who was a Habs fan). Guy behind us in a Sharks jacket hated us as we were cheering loudly all game. Challenged us all to a fight. Then Rivet scored in OT and we all laughed in his face. He's been laughing for 18 years tho...

"Southern Professional Hockey League"

I just don't like the sound of that.
Sounds pretentious to put the word "professional" in your league, especially in combination with Southern - which isn't about hockey - which makes the whole league sound like a pretentious oxymoron.

"The Chicago Blackhawks finished with 109 points last season, atop the Western Conference. That earned them a first-round series against the Nashville Predators, the last wild card, who then swept Chicago out of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

But what if the Blackhawks could have simply chosen not to play the Predators? What if, as a reward for their regular-season success, they instead had the option of selecting the Calgary Flames, who were swept by the Anaheim Ducks? Would they have taken it? And if so, how ticked off would the Flames have been, knowing Chicago viewed them as an easier out despite being the higher seed?

These are the kinds of questions the Southern Professional Hockey League hopes its fans and teams will ponder under a new playoff format, one that's designed to create such controversy and consternation.

"It's kind of like, for lack of a better term, picking a fight with a guy," said Jim Combs, president of the SPHL, a 10-team minor pro league in the southern U.S. that was founded in 2004.

The new playoff format, borrowed from Austria's Erste Bank Eishockey Liga, allows the top three teams in the eight-team playoff field to select their first-round opponents from the Nos. 5-8 seeds. The top seed gets first choice, then the second seed and then the third. The No. 4 seed gets the team that is left over. All matchups are three-game series, and the winners are reseeded in the second round based on regular-season record."

Maybe he should have BEEN the liquor after all.
By: dc IP: Date: - 10/17/2017 11:54:46 AM
Oh shit.

not Mr. Lahey...

But the real John Dunsworth died.
That sucks.
TPB will never be the same.
His character was part of that show.

By: db IP: Date: - 10/17/2017 10:18:17 AM
RIP Mr Lahey.
May the shit angles carry you have been, are now, and always will be; the liquor.

Jan Rutta is kicking ass, so far, for the Blackhawks. I didn't see that coming.

"He had two goals and two assists in the first four games, he’s getting major minutes on the penalty kill and he has spent time on the second power-play unit. Most impressively, he has won over the notoriously demanding Joel Quenneville, who raves about Rutta every chance he gets."

“He’s been really good,” Quenneville said. “I don’t know if we were expecting that level of play. It’s been fun watching him play. His gap is tremendous, and his thinking process out there complements the gap. Puck movement, reliability, dependability — he’s been excellent.”

The next (failing) nhl franchise will be in Houston.
Not because there is intrest and support, but, solely because it is the largest market (4th overall) with out a team.
With all the success I’ve had with my “southern strategy” in Florida, Georgia and Arizona, hoe could I be wrong about this.
So much winning you’ll be tired of winning.

They are doing the reverse- not allowing nearby casinos to put knights games on the books

I've been noticing that there are tons of empty seats at the Knoights games - right in the first 2 or 3 rows.

Maybe these seats have been bought by casinos/hotels, and they really don't care if they re-sell at their marked-up price.

But I'd expect that there'd be scalpers outside the stadium trying to dump these tickets on people... but nobdy in Vegas has figured it out yet, that you can go on the street and buy tickets for face or under.

Going to be interesting to see how a Major Pro Sports franchise gets along in Sin City...

I can only imagine a sportsbook Right IN the Stadium - offering in-game wagering. (Bet on the next goal right from your seat.)
