Exactly.  Great name like Queequeg tossed out in favor of "Pagetti Rook".   ::)

Again - Star Wars Legends powers activate - form of "ignoring crappy LFL re-names!"

Like I said in my post earlier, I'm tired of this bull**** trend of renaming characters for no good reason.  It's really, really stupid.

It was dumb when they tried to turn Ellorrs Madak into 'Ohwun De Maal' and Baniss Keeg into 'Chachi De Maal' (seriously, Chachi - WTF? Why wasn't Ellors named Joanie?) and it's still dumb with Doallyn/Starsher.

I'm officially enacting Star Wars Legends powers to ignore the whole thing and call him "Sgt Doallyn on the Skiff".  Problem solved.

I have had enough of the LFL EU names bull**** and it looks like Hasbro has too. 

Collectors: "Is it Sgt. Doallyn or Brock Starsher?"
Hasbro: "It's 'Skiff Guy'.  Now just shut up and buy it already, collector nerd."

And seriously, Brock?  WTF kind of EU name is that?  Was there an Easton, Hunter, or Ryder on the Skiff too?   ::)

Watching the arms race of the Central is going to be crazy today...  Nashville has added Neal, sounds like Dallas is hot after Spezza, Stasny is either staying in Colorado or heading to Chi/STL.  We're hot after Vanek/Iginla.  Everyone's getting better... except for the Jets (as already alluded to by my esteemed canuckle friend above).

Jeff If they ask me I want you for assistant.  3 year deal!

Sweet!  I will start drawing up PPs right now...  all Geno shooting, all the time!

Pointed out to me today - Penguins wanted a Willie or Peters as head coach, now interviewing a Johnson.  I think someone named Dick might get interviewed next...  better tell Ulf to change his last name to Samuelshlong if he wants the job.

Oh btw you should expect Niskanen in a Wild jersey soon.  :'(

Suter-Spurgeon
Scandella-Niskanen
Brodin-Folin

Yes please. :)

Draft coming up this week.  Free agency looming.  Should be a fun couple of weeks before we hit the dark summer months.  Random off-season thoughts...

-  wondering how long it will take before Jesse's Pens get down to interviewing him or me for head coach since they seem to be interviewing just about anyone these days.  Must suck knowing the best guy for the job out there is the guy they just fired.  Also must suck seeing "your guy" opt for Carolina or Vancouver instead... though those jobs probably come with a lot less media attention.

- wondering where the Wild will ultimately end up.  So many things were rumored all year long (Vanek, Vanek, Vanek!) and now... not so much.  Re-signing Moulson was a lock until the playoffs and now people have cooled on wanting him too.  Might be one of those summers where there's a lot of talk, but ultimately they go with the youth movement and hope for improvement from last year.

- Hall of Fame.  Nice to see them finally let Pat Burns in there.  No surprise on Modano, Hasek, and Forsberg.  Bit surprised they made Recchi wait though but I suppose you can't have everyone at once.

Guess the Ford injury was worse than the initial reports -

Harrison Ford Has 'Successful' Surgery Following 'Star Wars' Injury.

Sounds like he's out 6-8 weeks.  Now he's really gonna hate Han Solo. :(

Not the ending i was expecting. Good episode but I was really hoping for the book 3 cliffhanger.

Me too.  Good almost great episode that would have been awesome with the cliffhanger.  I was fully expecting it after this http://instagram.com/p/nEeNM0PA3L/ was posted on Lena Headey's (Cersi) instagram in April (especially after http://instagram.com/p/mVN1fdvAzU/ was posted months before the Mountain and Viper fight).  I'm hoping the character makes an appearance in season 5, because let's face it, most of the shocking scenes in the book are done.

RIP, Tony Gwynn.

Stoopid cancer.  :-\

One of the best hitters in MLB history.  19 of his 20 seasons over .300 BA.  .338 career average. 

And one of my favorites as a kid (a kid who spent a lot of time stuck in right field when playing with the older kids in pickup games near my house).  We'd make dream teams as kids and he was by default my pick for Right Field (with Kirby at Center and Rickey Henderson in Left).

DC's Rumored Movie Line-Up/Plans, which they will apparently reveal at SDCC next month.

- May 6, 2016 = Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
- Jul 2016 = Shazam! solo film
- Dec 2016 = Sandman solo film
- May 2017 = Justice League
- July 2017 = Wonder Woman solo film
- Dec 2017 = Flash/Green Lantern team-up movie
- May 2018 = proper Man of Steel sequel

If it's true, man that's a lot of DC movies in a 2-year span.  Keep throwing things at the wall until something sticks, right DC?
