    Happy Thanksgiving

    Resurrecting the Thanksgiving thread, (Canadian version) for 2019. I am thankful for spending a gorgeous fall day in Lake Rosseau with family, going for a run through the rolling hills by myself, walking the local labrynth with the grandkids, and not having to kill nor eat a 🦃 That tank though.

    Far far too early to be making these trades based on these reasons..lol. Come on. Although, Gauthier's play is making a strong case of moving out Tavares.

    I don't think we've been that bad at holding a lead the last 2 years. In 2017-2018 season: When leading after 1st period, we were 31-5-1 When leading after 2nd period, we were 31-3-2 In the 2018-2019 season: When leading after 1st period, we were 24-3-2 When leading after 2nd period, we were 36-0-1

    I don't really want to, and I'll hazard a guess and say Army doesn't either. We should discuss potentially using it when the site goes offline temporarily so we can use it as an announcement platform. We went from 1 active Mod and 1 Active Admin to 0 Active Mods and 2 Active Admins lol Things will be fine. I promise you. No you don't lol I don't think you need any email addresses to reach us. What are the chances we ban someone by mistake? What are the chances we ban someone period? I'm almost positive Uteck was the last member actually banned. And that was before I was even made a Mod. If the site goes down, I'd rather just use Facebook as a broadcasting point. I'm not a big fan of your coloured names for donations. It feels wrong. You donate to the site because you want to, not because you want to feel special and let everyone know you're special. Feels wrong, but you can feel free to discuss it.

    That Bertuzzi line to start the season has been fucking incredible. The Tavares line better figure it out because you know that’s what Babcock’s matchup will be.

    Kulemin posted a link to some charts. Did you check them out? You still havn't posted anything so I'm hoping you clicked on his instead, since you said that you'd look it up & post it. Ok, so what we can see from his link is CEO pay gradually pulling further away from worker wages in the 70s & 80s, and then dramatically in the 90s to the 2000s, and now maintains (more or less factoring in economic downturns) a 300:1 ratio, where it used to be 30/40:1 ratio. We can also see a continual and steady rise in productivity, based on the production of workers, technological improvements, organization, etc, etc from the 1950s through to today. This indicates that it is not a remote few of super-capable CEOs who are able to maximize efficiency in the face of lack-luster broader societal performance. No, we see gradual and predictable progress of productivity across most sectors, likely spurred on by technological advances, longer working hours, and not ceo genius. Then you can look up corporate profits over time, and see the gradual increase over the last 40 years (excepting a few crashes, ala 2008, followed by a quick bounce-back to above pre-crash numbers). (https://tradingeconomics.com/canada/corporate-profits) IF ceo's were truly as you say a rare breed of person that can somehow manage such massive corporations, where few others can, we would unlikely see continual and gradual improvements over decades across all sectors of business. There would be significant downturns as corporations failed to procure capable CEOs, and in turn would have huge loses in profits, ceo pay, productivity, etc. Except those things aren't happening.... are they? It's almost as if productivity continues to grow despite this so called supply & demand drought on capable CEOs. So then why do these figures keep rising? Could be it other factors other than supply & demand of corporate clowns? And make no mistake, if you've ever dealt with corporate, in *any* field where the company is worth billions, you should know just how incompetent and disassociated with actual business they really are. That's because they aren't the critical engine of what makes *most* business successful or not. Let me suggest a few other possible reasons why these figures might exist, other than shortages of talent. Tax cuts, with a lack of re-investment into the businesses. A lack of workers' rights to ensure fair pay increases as productivity increases. Globalization allowing for the removal of manufacturing & many service centers to nations with lower wages, with the tacit approval of governments who fail to protect industries who *just so happen* to donate to said leaders in many different financial streams. The proliferation of tax-loopholes, with no real enforcement of tax laws, or the desire to close legal loopholes. Multi-national corporations shipping out corporate hubs to outside territories, removing much interactions between actual operations & leadership. The proliferation of monopolies & oligopolies, where competition for workers is non-existent, and profits can then be allocated with little regard for workers opinions. I couldn't name all the factors if I tried, because I'm not well versed in this enough, but even as a laymen, let's face it, there's no ceo shortage that is responsible for what we're seeing. It's just corruption and greed, and cowardice from our "leaders." That's it. Either stand up and vote for someone who's going to stand up for basically everyone you've ever known and will know, or keep voting for cowardly corporate shills, who's pay day comes afterwards in closed corporate events in the form of shitty speeches. This is coming from someone who is in favor of capitalism too. I'm not asking for a radical re-organization of society, just a re-organization of what laws get to be applied to who, and what is a reasonable tax burden for each according to their ability. It's funny, every right winger trots out 'each according to their ability,' except when it comes to a progressive tax. then it's 'fuck you, die because you can't afford medication you slob.'

    I don't for a second think you're taking an open-minded approach. Your responses are so predictable they may as well be scripted. There's literally twenty neckbeards posting the same things to reddit right now.

    Moore cheated. He should have been inside the Blues defender, not outside. Babcock will be saying something about that.

    It's the "pull yourself up by the bootstraps" implication. Which if he's saying that's a thing all natives need to do which is certainly the implication in that statment, it can be construed as racism. Regardless, the reaction did not match the comment.

    Cool, how many first lines do they have? How many star forwards do they have? The Leafs have arguably the best forward group in the league. They should be taking advantage of that, not running Matthews into the ground. There’s nothing wrong with him playing nearly 19 minutes

    Chosen ignorance doesn't make it any less racist. Further using phrases like PC culture and snowflakes to explain it away makes you look like the ignorant asshole that you prefer to be.

    That's really shitty of you to say something like that. I would never say something like that towards someone over a mere dispute over the internet. Reevaluate how stupid it was of you to say that and apologize to uteck.

    They lost in Game 7 to the Bruins in B2B seasons and they could have easily won both games. They’re the damn same.
