You guys gotta read this story on Glen Metropolit. What a tough life he had. Kudos to him for realizing his dream despite all the obstacles. http://www.cbc.ca/sportslongform/entry/glen-metropolits-unexpected-rise-from-torontos-mean-streets

With the Russian ruble tanked and the economy in a mess, he won't bolt to the KHL. If anything, we'll start seeing ex-NHL Russian players trying to get back to the NHL..

If there is a center to the universe (and that's a big if), pundits generally agree that this center would be much denser than the rest of the universe. I would certainly agree Laffs fans are pretty dense, so you may be onto something...

I found it a little off putting as well. However, what if they were simply asked the question by some reporter? If that was the case, we can't judge them for providing honest answers. Anyway, I would be very surprised if either of them were chosen. They just don't have the experience in my view to take on the duties of that role. It will go to either Markov or Plekanec - two guys who play hard every night, have loads of NHL experience at all levels and have earned respect around the league.

Given that the human body has only one spleen, I'd wager Sullivan didn't want to risk another encounter with Harvey..

88% of public sector employees have pension plans compared to just 24% in the private sector. Additionally, public sector employees make roughly 15 - 20% more then private sector employees in similar fields when including both wage premiums and non wage benefits. In addition, Public Sector pensions are large, pooled and much more robust as compared to private pensions. For example, Public Sector pension plans typically provide target income replacement of 70 percent of final earnings integrated with C/QPP benefits after a 35-year career. You won't get close to that with a private sector pension (if you are lucky enough to even have a private sector pension). Average retirement age: Public: 58 Private: 62 Self Employed: when they die If you are a public servant I apologize for saying this but - we in the private sector are getting a little disgruntled that we are paying for your early retirement and retirement benefits that pale in comparison to ours. As the many Baby Boomers who make up a large portion of the 3,2 million public sector employees set to retire, it will place a further strain on the federal pocket book. To sustain all those new govt retirees, the feds will either have to increase the tax burden or cut programs. Things need to change.

1. If you can get a goon who is a two way player with some scoring ability then, sure, why not? 2. No, he won't because 1 above is not available. 3. Yes 4. Yes 5. Pleks or Markov

Dunno. How big are you? If you're at least 72" tall and 48" wide you might be a shoe in..
