    good god was that an abysmal sunday of football so far. the nfl is wondering why ratings are down....85% of the teams stink out loud, 85% of the teams dont have a viable qb. sheesh.

    beyond mcdavid and leon they really dont have much depth. talbot was playing way over his head last year and the d is getting exposed. strome has been completely invisible just like he was on the isles.

    As concussion debate grows louder, NHL owners remain largely silent

    With the link between hits to the head and lasting brain damage becoming clearer, the NHL is facing calls to action to do more. But when The Globe askedthe NHL’s owners in Canada to talk about whether they think the league has a concussion problem, we hit a lot of brick walls. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks had no comment. The Montreal Canadiens “decline comment.” The Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames “politely decline.” The Ottawa Senators “respectfully decline.”



    Cathal Kelly on the NHL’s role: “The NHL exists in two conceptual spaces: It’s a Canadian game but an American business. Its head offices are in Manhattan. For the past 40 years, it has been run by Americans. Twenty-four of its 31 clubs pay their taxes to Washington, D.C. Despite that domestic pedigree, professional hockey isn’t seen in America as one of that country’s cultural products. It’s a foreign game played by foreigners. This is why hockey exists largely outside the concussion continuum, at least in terms of the debate.”

    Consider this: The Western Conference minimum to make the playoffs last season was 94 points and it’s reasonable to believe that the standard will be around that level again in 2017-18. With Thursday’s loss Arizona has dropped to 0-9-1, which means that the Coyotes need to record 93 points in their final 72 games, which is a 46-25-1 record or in other words a .648 winning percentage. So while it’s early, it seems very unlikely that the Coyotes of all teams will be able to dig themselves out of that kind of hole.
