    Ryan White with one assist tonight in PHI. Good for him, i feared his career was over when he was put on waivers.

    The only thing I read about that was in an article in The Province "CBS’s 60 Minutes is also planning a feature on Subban." http://www.theprovince.com/sports/from+Subban+everywhere+these+days/10451708/story.html

    Bouchard picking up her game after a tough start. Hopefully she keeps up the pace. 2-1 Sharapova.

    Sure, but please take a look at two things: - The 2007-08 Montreal Canadiens roster. - The 2007-08 Detroit Red Wings roster (Stanley cup winner). All that goaltender blaming might have made sense at the time, but in retrospect, those teams (during the Gainey/Gauthier) were just not good enough. Heck, we're still not there yet and we're better then those years.

    Is he refering to the same Huet who signed a 4 year, 22.4 M contract on July after that trade? Then later sent to Europe to bury that salary? At least BG got a second round for him.

    It's much more complicated than that... [...] According to Jim Hamilton, an energy economist at the University of California, San Diego, the world’s real income increased by nearly 28 percent from 2005 to 2013. To keep oil prices stable, supply would have had to increase by over 19 percent. But field production of crude increased by only 3.1 percent. Supply was kept in check, in part, by unforeseen events: wars across the Middle East, attacks on oil infrastructure in Nigeria, sanctions on Iran. But OPEC’s big producers, like Saudi Arabia, did not increase production, either. Excepting the momentary swoon after the financial crisis of 2008, flat output from the cartel kept prices on the rise for more than a decade. What brought the arrangement crashing down was American shale oil. By 2013, the United States was already producing 3.5 million barrels of shale oil. Given the new American supply, high prices could simply not hold. “It was not feasible for the Saudis to defend $100 a barrel,” Professor Hamilton said. “It was a losing strategy. Fracking would have taken more of the market.” A price of $45 a barrel does not portend a great future for American shale oil, which is comparatively expensive to produce. As investment in new shale production dwindles, oil prices are likely to recover. But even if a bunch of shale producers are driven out of business, the industry — which can add or cut production more quickly in response to price signals — might still change oil markets for good, putting a ceiling on oil prices closer to $50 a barrel than to OPEC’s preferred $100. “We probably won’t see $100 a barrel for a while,” said Jeff Colgan, a political scientist at Brown University who has studied the evolution of global oil. “Fracking does put a bit of a ceiling on the price.” http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/21/business/economy/washingtons-role-in-oil-prices-recent-fall.html?_r=0
