  1. My high school finally cancelled the rest of the year, which, while it was obvious in retrospect, it still really sucks to lose the end of senior year and all the stuff that was lined up for the next month - an internship, HS Nationals for rugby, prom, graduation, saying goodbye to friends, etc. I'm hopeful that college won't be impacted a lot by this, especially since the county that the school I'll be attending is in has had very few cases, but that optimism feels foolish. Hope everyone's doing well though, I'm fortunate to live in a town where there hasn't been many cases.
  2. All of the Akim Aliu news that's come out in the last 24 hours. It's incredibly sad to think he never got a fair shake because of stuff like that and I hope something gets done to try and remove racism from the sport as much as possible.
  3. The QRE SL is on sale at HockeyWorld for $129 after a discount code right now. (Code is QRE50) https://www.hockeyworld.com/WARRIOR-Covert-QRE-SL-Grip-Hockey-Stick-Sr
  4. Finding a non - grip stick is tough these days, you might be better off removing the grip after you buy it if your son wants a glossy or matte finish. That said, these might fit your needs: https://www.hockeymonkey.com/equipment/hockey-sticks-shafts-blades/sticks-all-composite/hockey-sticks-junior/easton-hockey-stick-synergy-gx-grip-jr.html https://www.hockeymonkey.com/equipment/hockey-sticks-shafts-blades/sticks-all-composite/hockey-sticks-junior/true-hockey-stick-a6-0-sbp-jr.html
  5. Somehow improving my SAT score by 130 points. A lot of schools on my list went from 'unlikely' to 'very likely'. As an aside, I haven't been on the site in a while, hope everyone's doing well! Edit: Went from a 1210 to a 1340 if anyone was curious
  6. Gonna recommend the QX Pro, as you can find it at Pure for between 120 and 150 depending on sales. Obviously the 3 inch extension isn't ideal for everyone, but I cut it to 60 inches and it still feels good. Nice puck feel and generally feels good to shoot and pass with.
  7. Finally made my school's hockey team! This school year as a whole has been better for me as well, I've had good grades and made some new friends. Plus I picked up a QX Pro yesterday and I'm really excited to try it out. Hope everyone else is doing well going into the new year. Edit: The QX Pro is awesome! Going up to 75 flex and switching to a new curve (W05) has been really nice. It feels way easier to pick my spot when I'm shooting and passing.
  8. This is an old thread, but they are available on some models still, like the A5.2 / 6.0 SBP. However, they probably won't be on newer sticks.
  9. I can't remember where I saw it, but Bauer removed a layer of carbon fiber from the blade to reduce weight. Presumably, each layer that remains is strengthened in some way.
  10. I think it's from a dumb, loud minority on twitter who shouldn't be blaming him; because he's a good player on a good team. However, a lot of Isles fans predicted that Leafs fans were gonna get pissed when JT goes into his usual slump, so we're enjoying it right now.
  11. Leafs fans are already turning on JT. EDIT:
  12. My grandmother was hospitalized last night. Probably nothing but she's fairly old and has had heart issues recently so I'm worried. Not sure how she even got there considering she lives alone and is really stubborn when it comes to going to the doctor.
  13. Glad to see them coming back, this is one of my favorite jersey designs.
  14. If I had to guess about my Islanders, Lee, Bailey, and Boychuk would be very worthy guys to get an "A", considering that Lee is a great leadership type guy, Bailey loves the Island and has been here through thick and thin, and Boychuk has a Cup to his name and is a real 'grit guy'. Barzal feels like a long shot for this season, and any of the fourth liners (Martin, Clutterbuck, and Cizikas) would make sense too.
  15. I've never seen David Wright play in person before, but luckily I got a ticket to his final game at third base.
  16. Ottawa isn't even guaranteed a first round pick in the deal, nor did they get a 'top' prospect. San Jose has one of the best top pairs in the league now and the Sens seem to keep falling.
  17. https://theathletic.com/522117/2018/09/13/islanders-goalie-robin-lehner-opens-up-about-his-addiction-and-bipolar-diagnosis-i-could-not-stand-being-alone-in-my-brain/ Unbelievable read, I'm glad he got the help he desperately needed, as well as a fresh start, but it's upsetting to think of all the guys who never did. His demeanor and play on the ice at times makes a little more sense, though that's obviously not the most important thing. Even more reason to pull for him to succeed this season. EDIT: The Athletic has made this article free for everyone.
  18. I saw some speculative tweets from Brian Compton and Joe Smith, both of which have worked closely with NHL franchises (Smith covers the Lightning for the Athletic now) that the move was because he wanted to spend time with family more, as his wife was back in Michigan and his daughters were all in college; which required a lot of travel on his end.
  19. Being able to buy nice things with my own money that I earned.
  20. McDavid's got a p45 iirc.
  21. I saw the same thing earlier and had the same question.
  22. I've been loving my subscription. The writing staff is very impressive for almost every team and they're expanding to soccer and CFB as well. Not having ads is awesome and the mobile app is good too. They run a lot of sales (like Scott said, I got mine for $36 at the start of the MLB season), and existing users have a 25% referral code [can PM it to you if interested].
  23. I just worked a 4 week temp job in our town's conservation program and got exposed during the third week. I'm over the worst of it but I'm using Calamine, Hydrocortisone, and Zertec to get rid of it. Mostly on my left forearm and wrist, right calf (where it's probably the worst, there's been a huge plaque of the stuff for about 10 days), and left ankle. Still pretty itchy though.
  24. Poison Ivy. God damn this stuff takes forever to go away.
  25. I still don't get the speculation that he's gonna get a C. Too quiet, disappears for long stretches on the ice, not a particularly public or outgoing person. I could see an A for his skill on the ice and maybe his ability to bring the younger guys along but the C would be a stretch to me.
