Looking forward to Wild Vs. Nashville tomorrow.  Will be a much better test of Dubnyk and the Wild than the fodder we've been chewing up in our post-All Star run here.

[McConaughey]Alright, alright, alright.[/McConaughey] 8)

Man, my squad right now... 

So, so scared of the eventual day when Dubnyk remembers he's not a 1.68 GAA, .934 SV% Goalie.  :-\

Meh, take it for what it's worth.  He may not remember that until September and if that's the case, it could be awfully sweet.  Hot goalies steal cups all the time, this might be it for the Wild.

Wait, is Rose getting a scope or does he have a meniscus tear?

I read meniscus tear yesterday and that his season was over.

Both a scope and a meniscus repair.  I don't think anyone's done a meniscus surgery/repair by anything other than arthroscopic surgery in probably 20+ years.  That's how long ago I had my first one and I've had two more since. 

I'm kind of surprised they're talking season over for a meniscus but I guess it depends on the severity and location of the tear.  It must be worse than peripheral.

Whatever happened with Northstar? Did he ever get released?

Nope.  I don't actually know what happened.  "Cancelled" I think, but definitely not released.

Yup, but just timed it well to find it on Amazon.  She never showed up locally. 

We only ever saw wave 1 on the pegs, nothing after that, except in the last two weeks at one Walmart they had the Guardians of the Galaxy wave.  I don't recall if She-hulk was on that wave or not, she wasn't at the store.  That wave, along with Wonderman I was able to score off HTS right around Christmas time. 

So I'm caught up to the point of only missing Bishop now.  Have checked multiple stores where I found the rest of the wave and none of them have put anything out. 


Gave in.  Since I was ordering the LOTR EE BluRays from Amazon, I snagged the red She-Hulk figure at the same time for $10.99.  Couldn't get the timing down to find it on HTS. 

I think the only thing I'm missing that's out and non-exclusive is the Wonderman figure.

Thanks Justin.

Just a single case.  This retailer is kind of weird in that they put stuff out and if it sells, great.  But the restock rate is shockingly slow, as in months.  So I'm trying to stumble onto other stores in the same chain in hopes of finding Bishop. 

I didn't think there was anything new about Hawkeye at all.  I haven't looked real closely but I can't even find the differences between Dark Hawkeye and just Hawkeye. ;)

Interesting find last night. 

Wandered into our largest grocery store called "Superstore".  It's part of a nationwide chain run by Loblaws and the chain stores go under a variety of names, depending on where you are in Canada.  It's kind of like a poor man's Costco, carrying everything under the sun minus the auto stuff, but in summer you can buy a lawnmower there if you like.  They always have a toy section too and I've bought some SW stuff there over the years.  It's always more expensive for toys though too. 

So I took my traditional walk through there and they had the old, crappy Marvel toys they've had for months.  But in the diecast cars section  ???  I stumbled across the latest wave of Marvel Infinite figures and was able to pick up Black Cat, Beast (blue) and both versions of Sandman.  I left behind the grey Beast, the black and neon green Spidey figure and the Hawkeye figure.  From what I could tell everything is 2x per case except Black Cat and Hawkeye. 

The bummer is the price.  These were a whopping $14.99  :o  so after tax they were a silly $16.94 per.  Ouch.  I'd been waiting to get them off HTS but they (all but spidey) disappeared last night from the site.  It's about all I collect these days so I sucked it up and bought them.  My understanding is that U.S. retail is going to be $12.99 on these so I guess it's not that far out of line with the tumbling Canadian dollar.

by edit: I looked around online and it's showing the wave to contain Bishop and Daredevil as well.  No sign of those guys at all on the pegs.  Could be I missed them.  That would suck, because Bishop would have brought me right up to date on what's been released.

At least we got a point...

Which our awful fourth line and horrid not-even-third pairing defense handed to you guys by acting like whiny bitches.  Ugh.  Complete giveaway right there.  Should have been a clean two. 

Evander who?

The age is about right and the expression is dead on after we've crapped the bed five games in a row...

And are in the midst of a pretty good feud/crisis if the rumors are true.

Just keep it up long enough for Parise/Dubnyk to carry my squad back into the picture, thanks!  :-*

Yeah.   :-\

I've defended Kane a lot in the past on other boards.  There's no real telling what actually happened or not but something clearly did happen.  I expect Kane won't play again for the Jets.  He's also on IR right now so that may hamper things.  He's certainly been playing injured, you can see it when you watch him. 

An eventual trade seems inevitable, along with a healthy dose of sour grapes afterwards.  He's our own little Seguin.  I'm just hoping we get decent value for him.  He should generate a decent return, but not what he once would have.

Hey Brent, I think I saw you on TV at the Jets game last night...

Chicago's pretty white at the moment.  At least 6-8" down already and projecting blizzard conditions from 4pm - 9pm tonight.  Can easily see 1.5-2' by the time it's all done.

Good luck East coast, it's coming your way next.

We've shipped all the snow south this summer.  Honestly, if we don't get snow in February then I'll be riding my bike to work in March without much hassle.  That happens about once every ten years or so the last time being around 2003.

At this point, dust.

LOL.  Not far off myself. 

Marvel Universe selectively though they're making it hard enough to find that I'm not collecting much anyway. 

Thinking about a Sideshow premium format Snowtrooper but hoping they sell out before I get around to it. 

That's about it.

Stayed away from the Sideshow Snowtrooper but gave in on the Gold Stormtrooper bust from GG  ::)

MU is about it now.  Really wanting to downsize, but too damn lazy to sell with all the horror stories from EBay.  In the back of my mind I think I'm just waiting until new stuff launches and collectors get a little crazy again filling holes with old stuff.  I hope.
