      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

watching senators leafs in ottawa. 1/2 way through the third and it's a 4-4 barn burner. 19 year old, arizona born (!!) first overall pick austin mathews has scored all 4 leaf goals...that's right 4 goals.

I forgot all about that awesome Warren Zevon song, with David Letterman or the crowd screaming "hit somebody."

 

 

This song picks me up a little bit. A lot. Hard few months for my beloved Avs, But the Habs are ripping the shit out the joint and I got to listen to them in French. And Edmonton!

good one, mike. "his heart wasn't in it but the crowd ate it up" that summed up a lot of players, derek beugard as a most tragic, recent for instance.

 

3/4 summary:

 

habs started great but are on a bit of a wobble...including carey

 

columbus! holy fuck but also in a bit of a wobble

 

the capitals started slow but my effing god they are just filling the net, scoring 5+ every game out...holy crap

 

the pens have been solid all year, crosby is saying "not so fast" with his play

 

the leafs! fun to watch, the yearlings have been incredible. mathews is great but marner is fantastic to watch. that skinny little kid is fucking everywhere on the ice

 

The oilers! yes the kid is incredible...blazingly fast and can do it all at top speed. should make the playoffs either 3rd or wild card depending on...

 

if the kings keep their roll going

 

sharks and ducks...yup

 

boston....hmmmm. maybe.

 

so sad about the lightning

 

winnipeg, sorry not this year. lot's of good pieces and laine and schieffle are great but still can't find the goaltending you need

 

sorry wings fans, i think you need to rethink that old "detroit doesn't rebuild it reloads" thing

 

and finally my senators: definitively just good enough so far. karlsson has improved defensively at a slight expense of offense. picking up condon saved their ass, he's played really well in anderson's absence. stone is a legitimate top line forward. i like hoffman. i'm a big bobby ryan fan but he has not been anywhere within sight of where he should be.

I had a crazy dream last night, so vivid. I dreamed that Iggy got traded to the Habs right before the deadline to make one last run at the Cup.

 

At least, I think it was the Habs, maybe it was the Sens or the Leafs, I just remember that it was a powerhouse Canadian team. And that he took our hopes with him up to Canada and that he did well.

 

Kind of a reverse-Bourque.

 

I'm pulling for Iggy, I think he can help anyone in a Cup run. And whomever gets him is going to be my team, hopefully the Sens, but anyone. I've always liked Iggy from back in his Flames days because I liked the Flames from back when they were in Atlanta and their farm team was the beloved Colorado Flames of my youth.

 

Anyway, go Iggy.

I didn't get the whole ticker, but this is the end of the road for Joe Louis Arena? Why would you guys do something so drastic to one of the world's most iconic hockey venues?

 

Anyway, Iggy went to the Kings, I was hoping for the Sens, but this might be his last rodeo.

The Joe is almost 40 years old, has had minimal upgrades over the years (City of Detroit went bankrupt) and is not as well set up for luxury boxes as newer arenas.

The new arena is part of a multi-block redevelopment including office space and hotels, just north of the ball parks and theater district.

 

Personal point - I was there for the first game. There is a certificate in my storage boxes signed by Ted Lindsay, and I think Coleman Young.

The cap finally caught up with them. Sad, after so many years of being an elite team.

 

The Joe is beyond seedy, it could have been renovated, but not to be. A lot of memories in that building.

A lot of that was cap games in prior years, signing people to deals until they are 40. Franzen hasn't played more than a game in three years, and is still on the payroll. Add in deals for players like Nyquist and Tatar that should be carrying the team but can't score or hold their own in position battles, Howards' contract and it added up. There was a reason why Babcock bolted for Toronto, and it sure was not the ownership. They have some good young players, Larkin, Mantha, Athanasious, but there are too many holes, especially on defense, and goaltending needs to be hugely better for them to be competitive.

The Joe isn't seen as an icon in Detroit. Lots of good teams played there, but the arena wasn't well designed and is a complete waste of prime riverfront real estate. Even people who are too young to know will tell you that the Olympia is the real iconic hockey venue in Detroit.

I read that it ranked number 4 for hockey venues by fans, but if it's a crap building, then so be it. Seems like too much change at once, yeah I assume they floated the bond for the new arena some time ago ... They move to the East and have to adapt to that open style, Illitch dies, and then a new venue. Seems like the "reloading" might last a while.

 

Anyway, my dream was wrong, sorta, but Iggy went to the Kings, and they are behind, but they still have a shot at the post.

That's true but given how great chicago's core is and the fact that they have been there again and again in the last years i wouldn't bet against them. things have changed since mid feb. at that time i thought boston wouldn't make it and was pretty damn sure that this would be a "lost season" fo r tampa and now the bruins are solidly in and i'm guessing that the lightening will be in the last wild card spot by the time the weekend is over. kucherov is a superstar.

Look on the bright side ... if they continue their "reloading" for much longer, you Wings fans can revert to your old time hockey fun of throwing beer on players and cops. Not as good as winning, but it's fun.

No, my beloved Avs suck more. They suck first round draft pick more.

 

But the Oilers, Sens and Jackets are all contenders this season, so life is good. And the Hawk are having you Wings fans eat your hearts a bit, a little bonus.

if they don't manage to win 2 of their last 6, they could miss the playoffs! tampa would need to win out but it's a possibility. they have some injuries, carlson missed yesterday and they don't have the talent to miss their one superstar. The pens are sucking too and are hurting bad

When they feel like retiring from the NHL, unfortunately.

 

But if we're honest about the situation, it's a league full of lumberjacks. Crosby was only doing what everyone else does, what's been done to him a million times.

As "enforcement" fighting is being eliminated from the game, it's becoming more and more prominent, and the on-ice officials can't do much about it without SERIOUSLY affecting the flow of the game.

I do think that the league's "supplementary discipline" approach could be helpful, though. If guys become known hackers and are caught on video and get fined after the fact, things will change a little. This aligns well with the "more offense more offense more more more" mantra of the league, so if the NHLPA gets out of the way there is hope yet for Little Johnny Hockey to survive.

The real irony is that for as much as people bitched about the enforcers like Probert and Domi, this crap happens because they are not there. When those guys played, the other team knew that if you took runs and cheap shots at their star players, you would answer to them. Or your star players would.

Sens over the Bruins in 7...if anderson plays awesome and if Karlson is healthy

Wild over Blues in 5

 

Calgary over Anahiem in 7...calling an upset here. Elliot has been great, the flames are healthy, Anahiem have a couple of D including Fowler winged and i just don't like them.

We'll see! The stats were so slanted towards the Hawks but now it's it's a coin toss.

It's a coach's conundrum in sports. If you rest your guys and they come out cold, it was a bad choice.

 

If you keep playing them and someone gets injured, you're the worst coach ever.

 

And the Cubs got swept by the Pirates this weekend...Ugh.

Well, the weather was nice.

I was an on again/off again FWB for a gal that had entirely too good a time before she was 21. Tonight I kept having one line she said to me once go over & over in my head ...

 

"I hate New York, everybody blows their wad too early..."

 

Last week I would've said Habs in 7. Tonight it was obvious they'll win it in 5. Radulov's goal was an all guts thing of beauty.

I'll never get that out of my head. She summed up the city and the team perfectly.

You Chicago in 5 guys are a special kind of stupid this year, eh? :)

 

Back to back road shutouts by the Preds. Got to love it.

 

MS

Yeah, I voted with my heart. Next round will be different.

I haven't had a chance to watch much of the Chicago-Nashville series. Are the hawks just flat or is Rinne stealing the games?

Preds are winning at every level, top to bottom. They look hungry and play with desperation.

The Hawks are skating around...

The problem with Chicago is that they've been a Cup factory for the past few years, and short of giving everyone amnesia, there isn't much that Q can do that hasn't already been studied and linked to his player metrics. If you see that they're playing flat it's probably Hossa and Q trying to find something new that works. That's mostly chess, it's hard to play chess when the Finn in net has developed superpowers, and the Nashville defenders are made of flying concrete.

 

I still wonder about that soft ice in Nashville, but playing lower energy in that kind of slower game might help them down there.

Bulls win a playoff game

Cubs get swept by the Pirates

Blackhawks get shut out in back to back games on home ice.

Erik Karlsson is the best player on the planet right now.

Erik Karlsson is the best player on the planet right now.

And Craig Anderson is both the best and the worst goalie right now.

 

If Andy ever took an ADD pill he would be a brick wall. Sens!

bye bye Flames.....

you know when i called for a flames upset i didn't have much hope that they would actually do it but swept? sheesh, i thought they could win at home twice and go down in 6. already articles saying elliot is gone.

 

on a happy note! Sens up 3-1! Anderson played great last night, they have managed to stuff Bergeron and Marchand, Karlsson continues to make passes most can't and Bobby Ryan is back! Gord Downey was at the garden last night cheering for the B's...love everything about you Gord except for that.

I'm 1-1 but in my "bracket" pools I had CHI going to the finals so I figured those were all busted.... except that nobody else had the preds winning that series so it's a wash.

 

Now I just need Minnesota to find some friggin offense and make something happen there.

I'm happy for Mike Yeo and all, but I'd be just as happy for him to lose in 7.

the hawks scored 3 goals...3...did not see that coming.

 

quit watching the sharks and oilers because well other stuff and it looked like the sharks were going to win...woke up to the oilers win in overtime. everytime i watch minutes of that series it looks like the sharks are the better team but now they have to win 2 in a row.

Oiler's came out on a roll in OT, and took it too the sharks, Oiler's missed 3 or 4 quality scoring chances.

 

it really should have been over much quicker.

 

Sharks need to do what they did in the 7-0 game, they played good hockey.

I dunno if he should pay $10M, but yeah it should cost him.

Well NY actally showed up past the 2nd period this time, so it will take 2nd. The second round will be easier for the Habs.

Results from First Round, Figment and Chester knocked our teeth in.

 

1 Figment, 38
2 Chester, 32
3 Keith, 26
4 Hard Aground, 20
5 Mikewof, 19
6 Peacefrog, 18
6 Tax Man, 18
8 Dyslexic Dog, 13

 

The anomalies ... for some reason, we all picked Washington, but only Peacefrog correctly picked St. Louis. Peace, what did you see there?

Second Round ...

 

Preds over Blues in 7, Blues always seem to dismantle Nashville though, this one worries me.

Edmonton over Anaheim in 6

Sens over Rangers in 6, I love the Rangers, but Go Sens, gotta believe.

Caps over Pens in 7, But Pens looked better than the Caps in the previous round.

Rangers in 7

Edmonton in 6

Preds in 6. Though I picked chicago and minnesota for first round, so clearly I don't know enough about nashville or st louis.

Caps in 7. Really I think it will be 6 but I'm hoping for 7 because I want Cindy to lose in front of the home crowd.
