    1st line; Our big line HAS to learn how to play though the match-ups. They were doing good with that early on this year, but they're quickly learning how the actual playoff teams elevate their game and make it very hard for their opposition to generate momentum. But, don't break this line up, imo, see if they can overcome. 2nd line; We're finally getting some secondary scoring from Ghetto-Kerfoot-Jost, so I'm against the idea of moving Ghetto off of that line, right when it looks like they're just developing a little chemistry. Let those guys gel a little bit. This looks like a legit line going forward and all 3 of these guys should be around for the next few years. Develop for the future. 3rd line; This line is still playing well against tough match-ups, no complaints on that side of the ice, but they also are not currently contributing on the score sheet. Combined, those guys have 3 points in the last 8 games. Nieto and Comeau both have missed a number of opportunities in the past couple losses. 4th line; We just don't have enough skill, experience, or specialists (a face-off specialist would be nice). Toninato and Compher, still rookies, and Wilson are what we have for 4th liners that will still be around going forward, as well as someone will have to fill Comeau's spot on the 3rd if he's not extended. All in all, this was still a development year, and Super Joe had a great year as GM, imo, so we're already ahead of where most expected us to be. I really just don't want us to rush the rebuild because of where we are in the standings at this point. I said it at the beginning of the year....if this team is fighting for a playoff spot at the end of the season, then the season has been a success. Let the guys continue to develop at the current pace and they will gain experience in this run and hopefully they figure out what is needed to take it to the next level. I see a mostly full roster going forward, and so I hope we don't try to force something through in free agency. Sure, if Tavares or Carlson makes it to UFA, you can't not talk to them, but I honestly don't have much enthusiasm for any of the other big names potentially on the board this summer (Kane, Neal, JVR).

    Let's play devil's advocate. No your brother doesn't NEED a gun to protect his family, there are a multitude of other weapons he could use to do that. If you're saying you can "get anywhere" in the world without a car then I am saying you can also kill anything without a gun.

    BIG fines could do the trick. In Finland, the cost of speeding is depended on how much you make so one guy was speeding and had to pay like 100-200K USD for going too fast. If the fines are having those BIG magazines were like 5-10K, I'm sure people would turn them in. In Denmark, we sometimes have a weapon amnesty where people (mostly gangmembers) can turn in their knifes and/or guns for free, without having to face a charge. it brings the number of weapons on circulation down and we have fewer people in jail. Win-win.

    "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" "Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. Russia needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?"

    Without cost = Free. Did you mean tax-payer money that was previously used to fund the military will now be used to fund education? Because that isn't without cost or free by any means. I don't think that is what you meant. Again, math says that is several orders of magnitude not true. 3 billion people times 12 years versus 1/45th of the annual military budgets? Rough estimate so...total world military budgets last year was 1,686 billion. Divide by 45 to get 8 days is 37 billion which we divide by 3 billion children. That's about $12.33. Divide that by 12 years and you get about $1 dollar a year to spend. I think we could educate a child for $1 a year. Again...orders of magnitude off. The article made it sound like y'all were a bunch of racists trying to get rid of all the immigrants. The second article made it sound like y'all are prosecuting minors for "sex crimes" and trying to put them in prison for sending their boy/girl friend a racy pic.

    So, what is the solution? Is the top line a guarantee, or could we maybe move Landeskog to the 2nd line to be the shooter, and move Jost or Compher up to the top line? I'd say the only "untouchable" line is Nieto-Soderberg-Comeau because they're so important defensively, and they are far less effective separately than they are as a group. After that, I'm willing to try to mix things up to get secondary scoring to take some pressure off MacKinnon and Rantanen. Maybe put Yakupov on the 2nd line...at least he's got a decent shot and isn't afraid to use it. I just wish he could figure out how to put up a consistent effort.

    There are way too many variables to predict 2-3 years out. The most significant is how Girard, Makar and other young defensemen turn out. It would be wonderful if they reached their potential and we could rely on them for big minutes, but if they don't then we're going to have to get creative in trades/free agency in order to address our needs. There's also drafting to consider. Plenty of picks in the next few years could turn out...or they could be a bust.

    They made a movie or 2 like that with Jason Statham called Death Race I think.

    Why not bring back the beheading? 100% effective, cheap, and could also be automated so nobody has to "flip the switch". Turn it into a reality TV series, and it would more than pay for itself.

    Cars vs Guns is a terrible false equivalent, but seeing as you brought it up. Car deaths are a huge, recognized, well researched problem. Steps are taken every single year to make cars safer. Car death rates are actually declining despite the number of cars on the road increasing. Car safety is a huge industry, billions is spent every year making cars safer.

    Not likely, since we NEED cars. We don't NEED guns.

    I've scored a goal once because I lost the faceoff cleanly at center ice - never touched it. So I've scored a goal without touching it The defensemen shot to puck thru the crease and it hit his goalie and went in

    That's good, so long as he doesn't take the extra minor and put us on the PK. Gotta know the limits of what you can get away with in a scrum. I still think Warsofsky has been the best of our #6 defenseman options. And I think the lack of Soderberg really screwed us last night more than our defensemen being bad. If we had our normal shutdown line of Nieto-Soderberg-Comeau, we might not have won that game but we wouldn't have lost 7-1. They would have been matched up against Kopitar's line all night and he wouldn't have scored 4.
