60% of what?

A few weeks ago, after we acquired Vanek and Weaver, the talk here was who would be let go because we would be over the roster limit once everyone came back off the injury list. IIRC Bournival got sent down on a reconditioning stint, Drewiske cleared waivers? Is there an expanded roster limit for the post season?

We open the vault and make him an offer that will show we want him to be a lifetime Hab. We'll never finish low enough in the standings to pick up those marquis players. An opportunity like this doesn't come by often. 8 X 8 will do it. Dezzy centering two 40+ goal scorers next year!

I was probably about 4 years old at the time with four older brothers, 2 Wings fans and 2 Leafs. My first impulse was naturally to choose either Wings or Leafs but they said I had to go for another team. I said Montreal but they said "no that's French, can't go there" so settled on the Hawks. Anyway that year (early 60's) the Habs won the cup and once I learned a little about the legendary players and history I was all in. Boy it was great all those years lording it over them!

AFAIK Crimea was always part of Russia at least during Soviet times it was part of the Russian SSR. Then Yeltsin gave it over to Ukraine in a magnanimous gesture after the break up. The place is majority Russian. Not worth getting killed over. Not like Putin is going to start toppling countries in eastern Europe ala Hitler/Stalin.

Nothing but Grey Goose will do. Better washed down with Sapporo. ;>

A question for the cap geeks. Does Minny have the cap space to sign Vanek?

The Swiss holding on against the Swedes halfway through (0-0) despite some lame calls by the refs. I hope they don't hijack this tournament but it's entirely possible.

Throw the Wiese guy on with them? I haven't been able to catch a game since he was acquired. Just thrown' it out there. Perhaps a 4th line grinder to go to the net and give Max and DD is all that's needed.
