    Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    I read something over lunch about the USMNT's labor situation and I wouldn't waste a single minute thinking about the Olympics until this mediation session sets a tone on the labor lawsuit. There's...

    Sticky: Re: 2019 Carolina Hurricanes Off Season Thread

    I'll take it either way. So long as he gets a new deal, I'm past caring about the "how." I suspect there's going to be a LOT of close calls in contract negotiations with Dundon. He's a guy who...

    Re: CANES MATCH HABS OFFER ON AHO...

    I'll tie this into Aho so it's too far off topic.

    One thing to truly value about Aho in all this is his singleminded devotion to the discipline of getting to camp on day 1, ready to go.

    As...

    I believe ... that's 5 years away

    BTW ... if anybody is interested, the Danny Boyle film Yesterday is in theaters and it's quite good. Not Oscar-worthy or anything, but really well done.

    Re: 2019 Summer Transfer Window Thread

    I heard on a podcast that City expect to be able to get him a permit when he's reached 25 caps for the US. Not that it will matter, because he's not seeing that roster any time soon anyway. But it...

    Good to get McGinn out of the way sooner rather than later. Forsberg is easy ... he's an asset we got dumping salary. If they don't like his award they can just waive goodbye and give him a crisp...

    Re: CANES MATCH HABS OFFER ON AHO...

    My understanding is that nowadays, teams don't extend a formal offer sheet through the league office until the player/agent have verbally agreed to sign it. I mean, why would you?

    Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    Being that there's only one year to the Olympics, I'd guess that a lot of the 30-somethings will still want to play. All of their contracts are up after their contractural victory tour that nobody...

    Re: 2019 Women's World Cup in France ... June/July

    Biggest problem at fullback for the ladies is that Ellis requires them to get forward and combine in those forward triangles with the winger and midfielder, and most of all ... to make plays. I've...

    Sure. And I think that's fine. I just don't think we ought to let bitchy turn into bitter, because let's be honest ... everybody acted within the framework of the CBA and the end result is absolutely...

    I'm fairly sure the issue is all the debt Rogers took on when they acquired other networks with pre-existing rights deals ... but let's be honest, Canada problems are not my main focus.

    I think CapFriendly was showing him in the Canes non-roster list on Friday or Saturday. That paperwork took a WHILE. Low key prospect but from what I can gather he's a solid AHL 2-way defenseman....

    Mexico takes the Gold Cup Final 1-0 over the US. Pretty nip and tuck game before the Mexicans put their foot down after half time. The US played well though, and provided a very entertaining back and...

    If by "dominated the last 5" minutes you mean "created a solid scoring chance for the first time all game" then yes. The announcers got so excited that the Dutch actually kept possession for a little...

    Nah. Not many anyway. Traditionalists were never really Cherry's audience and I'm not sure that Chuck really appealed to the Neanderthal crowd. I don't think there's much crossover.

    Re: CANES MATCH HABS OFFER ON AHO...

    While the Canes are not thrilled with Aho's agent by any means, that has little to do with his relationship with the guy. Johansson got him his 5 years, got him his money and got him to camp on time....

    Comprehensive win for the US. The Netherlands gave sticking to a defensive setup a go, and limited the damage but that wasn’t really close. Most telling was that every time the Dutch tried to open it...
