  1. If you want to dabble in near future sci-fi, just about any William Gibson series is good.
  2. Wait for the eviction crisis to play out. Inventory should increase as people sell their homes rather than lose them to the bank or for foreclosures to become a more lucrative option for the investment crowd. Don't expect pre-pandemic pricing, but I could see a 10% softening.
  3. So far I’ve been impressed with the forum. Some cool new social features.
  4. Never bad to have hungry players that have had a good taste of that NHL salary lifestyle.
  5. Just a place to play around.
  6. Your testes appear to be in working order.
  7. I’m not sure if that is enabled for forum members. I changed it. We will have to look into this for the future.
  8. As of right now, yes. Tapatalk requires additional support on our end, and given how much better the mobile experience is in browser now, at the least it won't be a priority in the face of all the other work still to do.
  9. There's a thread on Tapatalk likely going away in this forum. The mobile experience is way better than the old forum.
  10. Upon another suggestion regarding hockey-politics balance, we're announcing a new measure, starting now, that will apply exclusively to the Politics, Religion, Philosophy & News sub-forum — the Card Punch Rule. All of our prior rules still stand. We still ask that you take debates/discussions seriously, argue earnestly, avoid hyper-partisanship, and do your best to always engage in good faith. We still ask that you properly source/link information, especially in an OP, or when asked to for verification by another user. We still ask that you avoid hyper-partisan media outlets and try only linking to mainstream/trustworthy organizations with minimal biases. Trolling, snide remarks, and divisive partisanship will still result in immediate infractions and/or thread bans. In the event that a user is determined to have repeatedly violate these terms, we're reserving the right punch your card — to remove your ability to view or reply in this sub-forum at all as both a punitive measure and one to spare the rest of the forum's compliant users from having to deal with disrespectful users. This feature would, ideally, rarely need to be enacted, but in specific cases in which the Staff comes to a majority consensus, users can and will have their permissions to view and participate in this sub-forum permanently revoked. There is no mathematical formula we will be using to determine when the line is crossed. We'll know it when we see it, but suffice it to say, if you're racking up infractions and disciplinary warnings for your conduct in that sub-forum, you're on thin ice and at risk of having your wings clipped. Further to this, the list of users who've had their cards punched will not be made public or announced. Again, take heed of Staff warnings. If you don't, and your card is eventually punched as a result, do not cause a massive fuss. Especially publicly. Any attempt to martyr yourself won't be silenced, but granted, and you will be infracted for doing so or banned entirely depending on the severity of your outburst. This will be at the Staff's discretion. The good news is, this new feature will allow for a user who's political card gets punched to still be able to participate in any other forums, maintaining their account for what should be their primary purpose here to begin with — hockey. I am also willing to accept "opt out" requests for anyone who wishes not to see political topics at all. This would be a one-time offer, however, not a revolving door, so if you "opt out" consider the request permanent once applied. If you have an earnest question about this, please ask it here. For anyone who wishes to opt out, you may also request so in this thread. Myself or Phil in Absentia will quote your request and notify you once it's been applied. Thanks, Staff
  11. I know the Rangers took a lot of defensemen in this year's draft to add to the prospect pool they already have and quite a few people wanted them to grab some wingers, but it's all shaping up nicely in my estimation. Here's who they had in their system prior to the 2018 draft: Defenders (age): Skjei (24) Pionk (22) DeAngelo (22) Rykov (21) Hajek (20) Day (20) Lindgren (20) Centers (age): Howden (20) Andersson (19) Chtyil (18) Wingers (age): Buchnevich (23) Lettieri (23) Lindqvist (23) Meskanen (22) Gropp (21) Ronning (20) Gettinger (20) Goalies (age): Mazanec (26) Nell (23) Shestoyorkin (22) Georgiev (22) Halverson (22) Huska (21) Wall (20) Stocking up on a bunch of 18 and 19 year old defensemen along with an elite winger prospect was the right move. Next year, as they continue the rebuild, I would think they'll grab another center or two, along with a bunch of wingers. Since traditional development sees goalies take the longest, then defensemen, then centers and finally wingers, this path makes the most sense to me. I'm not even hating adding an 18 year old goalie to the system, although I wish they would have waited til the 3rd or 4th round to do it.
