Pittsburgh Penguins - Mon 27 Mar 2017, 7:23 pm

Effort isn't the issue

The Pittsburgh Penguins have now lost three games in a row. As recent as a week ago they had a good look at winning the division and potentially the President’s Trophy. Those aspirations have all but evaporated due to the recent stretch of games.

Matt Cullen called out the team for their effort last night


All due respect to the long time veteran, but the Penguins issues don’t have anything to do with effort. When you try to utilize the “next man up” strategy eight or nine times, you are going to have diminishing returns. Here is the current status of the Penguins.

Sidney Crosby has lost both of his wingers to injury. One winger is leading the NHL in 5v5 points per 60 and the other one was comfortably producing at a top line level.

The Evgeni Malkin line has been Malkin-less for six games.

Carl Hagelin will not be returning until right at the beginning of the playoffs or slightly after.

Kris Letang is skating again, but he has missed the last 16 games.

Olli Maatta, Ron Hainsey, and Trevor Daley are all out of the lineup and not available.

Here is what the healthy lineup is supposed to look like

Sheary (out) – Crosby – Guentzel (out)
Kunitz – Malkin (out) – Hornqvist
Hagelin (out) – Bonino – Kessel
Wilson – Cullen – Rust

Dumoulin – Letang (out)
Cole – Schultz
Maatta (out) – Hainsey (out)
Streit – Daley (out)

The reality is that the Penguins have been playing with too many AHL players in the lineup. For a while, they were getting some winning results. I would consider that a bonus. That was the result of Sheary-Crosby-Guentzel being on fire. Without that top line right available the ability for the Penguins to be dangerous offensively has been greatly compromised.

It is a lot to ask of a team to lose players of Malkin and Letang’s caliber and continue to pile up standings points. When you are dealing with another six injuries past that it makes winning in the NHL a tough proposition.

Getting healthy was always the #1 game plan heading towards the playoffs. Earning home ice advantage was a reasonable enough goal while navigating some of the injury issues that the Penguins have had. Lately, the injuries have reached a level where it is not reasonable to expect consistent positive results.

Looking for a positive in all of this is the fact the Penguins won’t play until Wednesday night. This will be the longest layoff the Penguins have in between games for the rest of the regular season. Some of the players who have been skating may be able to make a return to the lineup.

Pittsburgh has one of the best rosters in the NHL. Will that be the roster they go into battle with in mid-April? If they don’t it could be a short postseason.

How Will 260 Million Americans 'Disappear' In Less Than 8 Years? Deagel Has America Sitting Just Abo - Sat 25 Mar 2017, 6:14 pm

How Will 260 Million Americans 'Disappear' In Less Than 8 Years? Deagel Has America Sitting Just Above Venezuela By 2025 With Purchasing Power Of US Dollar Ranked 78th In The World

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

[size=13]'The purchasing power of the US dollar will continue to plummet like a corrupt banker wearing cement shoes dropping to the bottom of a river as long as the Federal Reserve keeps printing money, backed by nothing, like it's toilet paper'.

Last updated on March 23rd of 2017, the 'country' page for the United States of America over at seen in the screenshot above still shows a forecast population for the US for the year 2025 to be 61 million people. Much more than just a 'significant' drop from the 321 million living in America in 2015, we've asked in stories on ANP time and again what they expected to happen to 260 million Americans and where they were going to go in less than 10 years. [/size]

While the forecast population drop is shattering, maybe even more doom-portending are the forecast financial numbers outlined by Deagel with a gross domestic product drop from $18 trillion in 2015, #1 in the world, to a forecast of only $949 BILLION in 2025, ranked only 11th in the world. The drop in forecast military budget from $781 billion a year in 2015 to only $8.2 billion a year in 2025 shows that according to some, President Donald Trump's increased military budget might be a temporary thing. 

Meanwhile, with 2025 less than 8 years away, the GDP per capita drop from $55,855 in 2015 to a forecast of only $15,517 in 2025 shows us many more Americans will be living in poverty in less than 8 years from now than are here now. What does Deagel know that we don't know? This new story from Zero Hedge reports the 'retail apocalypse' has officially descended upon America as Dave with the X22Report also expands upon in the 1st video below. And as we read in the new SQAlert republished below videos, everything happening now geopolitically and financially is tied together quite tightly with Deagel's 2025 forecast which still shows a forthcoming collapse for America despite President Trump.

While Deagel admits their numbers are only a 'forecast', we should keep in mind the sources for their information are the United States government, the CIA, the US Department of State, the US Department of Defense, the World Bank, the European Union, the US Army, the US Navy, the US Marines, the US Air Force, and the US Coast Guard among others. 

Many people have asked, what does do? Deagel keeps track of numbers. For example, as seen in the screenshot below, if you want to know how many B-1B Lancer Long Range Attack Aircraft the United States of America had in their possession, we'd go to Deagel which has numbers for everything 'military industrial complex' related. And as we also see, they update their website quite regularly as seen in several March and February 2017 entries.

So, with strong ties to the US government and US military as sources, what does Deagel know that we don't know? Besides the other huge drops in population, GDP, and military budget, the Deagel category for Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) tells us exactly what the mainstream media won't: Very difficult times are ahead if Deagel's forecast for 2025 is correct.

In 2015, the United States stood at #16 in the world for PPP at $55,800. In comparison, the failing socialist nation of Venezuela stood at #89 in PPP at $16,700.

For 2025, Venezuela is forecast to be #86 in the world at a PPP of $9,108, a big drop from 2015. The US's forecast PPP for 2025? $10,345 for a ranking of #78 in the world.

Quite a steep drop when you consider Venezuela's PPP in 2015 was $6,000+ more than they are forecasting the US's PPP to be in less than 8 years from now! What might happen to cause such a HUGE drop in the US dollar's purchasing power? It's clear to us that Deagel's forecasts show an America in 2025 in total collapse with the purchasing power of the US dollar worse than what is happening in Venezuela right now. You can see the US in the chart from Deagel below, sitting only 8 spots above Venezuela in Deagel's 2025 PPP forecast. This chart shows the US approaching 3rd world nation status by 2025.

Why is such a huge drop in our PPP forecast for 2025 for the US, dropping from $55,800 to $10,345? Of course, the purchasing power of the US dollar will continue to plummet like a corrupt banker wearing cement shoes dropping to the bottom of a river as long as the Federal Reserve keeps printing money like it's toilet paper. For even the people in Venezuela have recently figured out it's much cheaper to use money there as napkins or toilet paper than actually having to go out and buy the products. 

Similar to what happened during the 1930's and the Weimar Republic which printed so much money it became completely worthless, what we are watching unfolding is the globalists long held plans to destroy our sovereignty and nation state by spending us to the point we are now at, with a national debt clock ticking onwards approaching $20 trillion and a possible hard debt limit ahead of us.  

As the SQAlert republished below videos from Dr. Jack warns, bringing down our entire existing system could allow the globalists to bring in their long-sought cashless society and 'mark of the beast' complete control system. 

Are there any answers and might 'gold' be the way America has to go? The recent stories from across the world and the internet prove to us that the 1% are preparing for 'the apocalypse', with many believe there is no turning back and danger is ahead as Erin Elizabeth over at Health Nut News recently reported. Whether North Korea brings global war or what is happening now in Venezuela comes home to America, there's never been a more important time to prepare for possible 'dark times ahead'.

As we hear in the 2nd video below and read in this story from Infowars, Sweden too is preparing its citizens for war, activating cold war bunkers over fears of a Russian invasion. Interestingly, as we had previously pointed out in this story at ANP back on April 9th of 2015, the nation of Sweden and other Western nations also were showing a substantial forecast population drop by 2025.

Deagel also answered for us in a statement why they forecast America to have 260 million less people by 2025 than there were in 2015, a 'confluence of crisis with devastating results' that leaves America a broken, dying nation. Just what the globalists have been trying to do to our nation all along - neuter us, financially destroy our sovereignty to complete their 'totalitarian new world order'. We'll close here with this brief excerpt of Deagel's explanation with the important previously mentioned SQAlert below videos.:

[size=13]There have been many questions about the countries forecast specially the one focusing on the United States of America (USA). They won't be answered one by one but below you can find some explanation, thoughts and reflections. We are going to keep this as short as possible.

The majority of the economic and demographic data used in the making of the forecasts is widely available by institutions such as the CIA, IMF, UN, USG, etc. You can see the most relevant data at every single country's page. There is a tiny part of data coming from a variety of shadow sources such as Internet gurus, unsigned reports and others. But all these sources are from the internet and are of public domain for at least a minority.

The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States.

This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe - suffering a similar illness - won't be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union's population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say "Twice the pride, double the fall"? Nope.

The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system. When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union's one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result.



Great observation—this will be how they will eventually implement the mark here in the US. Eventually in order to buy (amazon) as this and other online places will have the needed items that one needs as there are already shortages of stuff everywhere for example it is very hard to find storable food (mountain house) at the local Wal-mart or Bass Pro. So you are right as more and more brick and mortar stores go out of business getting what is needed will be harder and harder to find. I needed to get something from Northern Tool and they have a local physical location here in Charlotte however they did not carry it in the store so I had to order it online and I was able to have it delivered to the local store for free to pick-up. I am finding this also to be the case at Wal-mart. They are having “shortages” that no one seems to notice because they will fill the “empty holes” on the shelves with items so that there are no gaping holes. The last thing they want the sheep to do is to start thinking.

Once the right circumstances hit whether it is the boogy man of NK or Russia, or simply an economic collapse they will “pull” the plug and then when the “solution” (problem, reaction, solution) is provided after all of the people suffer they will flock to take the mark! When I read the Bible and think about how Esau sold his birthright for food - (imagine how hungry he must have been!) something most people here in the US have never experienced (me included) or how the prodigal son was so hungry that he ate the slop that was given to the pigs, it will not take much for people to kill one another in the streets (literally) for food. Then when the “system” comes back up in order to do business (buy and sell -get food) you will have to take the mark—this is why last year it was leaked out that the big banks are all working on some type of block-chain (crypto currency) technology. This will eventually replace the physical currency. So as you have said in the past this is where the physical gold and silver will come into play for bartering the black market!

Remember the new census is to take place in 2020- it will take about a year or so to get completed. Why is this interesting? This is interesting due to the fact that by 2025 according to which you have reviewed before the population of the US is supposed to be about 50 million or so down from the 330 million. So this means that by 2020-there will be some form of census being conducted. This would mean that by 2020 or so the “grid” or some form of it or the stabilization of everything should be back which would mean that something will happen in the next 12 months as those who know have said that it will take about 18-24 months to restore the grid after it is taken down and as Hawk has said many times on his show that 90% of those living within the US will be dead in 12 months. 330 million times 90% leaves 33 million left!

Just some thoughts!

Who should be leading the Vezina race? - Thu 23 Mar 2017, 8:10 pm

Who should be leading the Vezina race?

Follow me on Twitter @ToddCordell

In this edition of the hotstove, we share our thoughts on which goaltender should be leading the Vezina race with just a handful of games to go.

Todd Cordell

I think Sergei Bobrovsky is the most obvious and deserving candidate.

He leads the league in wins, goals against average, save percentage, is right near the top in 5v5 save percentage, and the Blue Jackets allow more scoring chances than Montreal, Washington and some of the other teams top goaltenders play behind. Essentially he has put up better numbers despite facing more quality shots.

Adam French

Sergei Bobrovsky

I know he has a very strong defense to work with, but he has the numbers and it's his to lose. He has been the most consistent of the top performing goaltenders and hasn't had the ups and downs of any of the other challengers (Dubnyk/Price/Holtby/Talbot). From all accounts, the Jackets are not going to rest him much down the stretch as they have a chance to win the Division and so I think it's safe to say he will probably lead the league in Wins. Which really shouldn't matter so much, but it does to voters.

Barring a meltdown, this is his to lose...and we'll have to deal with a world where Sergei Bobrovsky is tied for having the most Vezina Trophies since the 2004 Lockout.

Peter Tessier

I think there could have been debate here awhile ago but I think it has to be Bobrovsky. If you look at all the stats for goalies, traditional ones, see where he stands:
GAA #1
Save % #1
Wins #1
Shutout #4

The guys having a career year and really if you use those four categories as your criteria Holtby and then maybe Darling are the only ones to come close to challenging. After that imagine were the Blue Jackets would be without that level of play? Heck Torts might get a Jack Adams because of goaltending. Perhaps he's a Hart candidate too?

Anderson drags Senators to two huge points

Craig Anderson needed a bounce-back in the worst way, not only because he had an off game on Sunday night, but because the team needed a stabilizing force in goal to avoid losing a fifth straight game for the first time this season at a time when the pressure was on to avoid falling into a logjam in the playoff race.

Well, asked and answered. While his team is still looking for a solution to playing a game that doesn't frustrate the heck out of anyone watching, Anderson was sensational in making 34 stops and Kyle Turris provided a pair of goals and that was just enough to allow them to hang on to down the Bruins 3-2.

They managed to hang on over the last couple of minutes, as Boston surged looking for the equalizer and came close on a number of occasions, but the fivesome of Zack Smith, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Tom Pyatt, Erik Karlsson and Cody Ceci killed off the last 87 seconds, including four tough defensive zone faceoffs with the Bruins' top guns on the ice.

The Senators opened the scoring with Ceci putting a shot that pin-balled off Pyatt and Bruins defenseman Colin Miller past Tuukk Rask. David Krejci evened the score on a Bruins power play as the Senators own man advantage proved fruitless (putting it nicely) and gave the Bruins more chances than they have had (more on that later). In fact, the Senators two first period power plays both ended up in them taking penalties to negate the advantage and that was a blessing because their play up a man was Ugly. Even tied 1-1, Ottawa was fortunate to be in that situation thanks to Anderson, and Ottawa finally cashed in on a second period power play as Turris used a Bobby Ryan screen to put one past Rask.

A four on three power play for Boston paid off seconds into the third as Torey Krug channeled his inner Erik Karlsson and knifed through the trio of Senators defenders to lift a wrister past Anderson to knot the score 17 seconds in. Turris redirected a slap-pass from Dion Phaneuf past Rask to give the Senators their third lead of the game, and from then on it was hang on for dear life as the Bruins pressed for the tying go to no avail and Ottawa escaped with a 3-2 win and a now comfortable six point gap for second place in the Atlantic Division.

The Ottawa power play has been brutal of late, 4 for their last 24. They have been timely, but at many points over the past 6 games it has been cause for concern, including much of last night. There is no coincidence that the struggles started when Mark Stone left the lineup and Bobby Ryan came back and was inserted on the first unit. Ryan has become target #1 through social media, even surpassing Ceci and Mark Borowieck in terms of vitriol, which is a tall task. Since he has come back, Ryan has been a passenger for the most part, with the only real positive is his willingness to stand in front of the net. His screens have resulted in a couple of those power play goals but he has also been hit by an inordinate amount of his teammates' shots.

There was positive news from the Stone injury front, as he skated yesterday and has taken a "major step" in his recovery and the "week to week" tag was removed so a return could be closer than we had expected yesterday morning.

Ottawa can take a bit of a breath before hosting Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins Thursday night, with a six point cushion over the Bruins and a solid ten point gap over the ninth place Islanders, this was a big two points and they can't sit back and rest but there is a heck of a lot less pressure at the moment to win the next one. Maybe not the pressure to win, but they certainly need to find a way to rely less on their goaltending and give more support than they have over the last handful of games.

Game Day: Lightning @ Senators - someone cover Kucherov!
March 14, 2017, 9:54 AM ET [18 Comments]

Ottawa Senators Blogger • RSS • Archive • CONTACT
The Ottawa Senators will be looking to avoid the "first game home after a long road trip" curse and continue their perfect month as they March toward the playoffs.

Tampa Bay is the opponent tonight, and they are coming of a 3-2 win over the Rangers in Manhattan last night, and they won while managing just 16 shots on goal.

The key for the Senators in this one will be to either a) stay out of the penalty box altogether or b) if they do find themselves shorthanded, make sure they know where Nikita Kucherov is. If their last matchup is any indication, Ottawa will find him in the faceoff circle ready for a one-timer, because that was a recipe for Lightning success the last time around. Kucherov scored three times, on three almost identical one-timers from the same area in the second period just over two weeks ago, and that was the difference in Tampa's 5-1 win.

The Lightning have been struck by the injury bug in much the same way as the Senators, and they have been hit up the middle. In one game last week, Tyler Johnson, Cedric Paquette and Vladislav Namestnikov all went down with injuries. Namestnikov is back, but Johnson and Paquette both are still day to day and missed last night's game against the Rangers. That has forced Jon Cooper to scramble to find guys to take faceoffs, as they had dealt Brian Boyle and Valtteri Filppula at the deadline and Steven Stamkos is out. That meant that of their top seven players who had taken the most draws for the team this season, Namestnikov and Brayden Point were the only ones that played last night, and Namestnikov might not be completely right because he played the wing and took 0 faceoffs. They had 7 different players take faceoffs, and it showed as they won just 39% against the Rangers.

Which means that it is a perfect time for a return of Ottawa's #1 centre, as Kyle Turris should be good to go tonight after missing the three games on the road trip with a bad finger. Whether he is ready to take faceoffs is another story, but having him back in the lineup will be a boon to the depleted top 6. We also got word that Bobby Ryan may be able to return this week (EDIT: it looks like it might be tonight) from his own finger injury, but the news on Mark Stone was not as optimistic, as he is listed as week to week with the lower body injury that has already cost him two games.

The Senators have won 6 straight, and are putting pressure on the Canadiens for first place in the Atlantic, while the Lightning's win last night put them just a point back of the Maple Leafs for the last wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.

This should be a good one as both have something to play for, with the Lightning likely to show a little desperation as they have clawed their way back into the mix among adversity and would like to be in range when they finally get Steven Stamkos back from injury, which would be a huge boost to their hopes of not only making the playoff, but making some noise in the postseason.

This game could feature two of the Norris Trophy finalists as Erik Karlsson faces off against sometimes international defense partner and fellow Swede Victor Hedman. Karlsson had an assist taken away from following Saturday night's game, so he is now back to being one short of 50 for the season, and trails Norris favorite Brent Burns by 8 points. Hedman is third among defensemen in scoring, four points back of Karlsson.

After dealing Ben Bishop at the trade deadline, Tampa will give the crease to Andrei Vasilevskiy, who will get the start tonight after Peter Budaj gave him a rest against the Rangers. Craig Anderson should get the start for the Senators. {EDIT: At the morning skate those in attendance were surprised to see Chris Driedger lead the team out for warmup, followed by Mike Anderson. Anderson is out with a lower body injury, as a result of post-game in Colorado. It is not known how much time he will miss}

Game 69: NYR-DET, Hank out 2-3 weeks, Raanta in, Nash/Grabner back
March 12, 2017, 11:48 AM ET [91 Comments]

New York Rangers Blogger • RSS • Archive • CONTACT
It's been an interesting 72 hours or so in Rangers land. First, it was announced that Henrik Lundqvist would miss the game against Carolina with a lower-body injury that seemed to come out of nowhere. Same can be said about Rick Nash, who was sidelined with an upper-body injury he has been battling for a while. In the game, the constant inconsistency of the officials reared its ugly head in the loss to Carolina on the - lets tag it - questionable call on the contact with Antti Raanta. In that game, coach Alain Vigneault said Pavel Buchnevich for Tanner Glass in the last few minutes with New York down a goal. Yesterday, it was announced that Lundqvist will miss 2-3 weeks with the injury, which is to his hip, while Nash and Michael Grabner, out with his own hip injury, are both expected to play today against Detroit.

Lundqvist said yesterday that he knew the exact moment that he was hurt in the first period against the Panthers, saying it was “a save there where my body was going one way, my leg the other way, and I had an impact on my hip." The below video has a few moments when it could have occurred. The first is around the 2:30 mark, where his body contorted in a manner consistent with the injury. The other could have been at the 3:05 mark. The injury occurred in the first period but Lundqvist remained in the game and made 36 saves the final two periods.

It's now Raanta time, supported by Magnus Hellberg. New York has all of their next eight games over the next two weeks being part of back-to-back sets — including when the Blueshirts play host to the Lightning at the Garden on Monday night — leaving Alain Vigneault a major decision as to when to play Hellberg. It sounds as if Raanta will be ridden hard over the next few weeks. But with a 14 point lead in the first Wild Card spot over the Maple Leafs, the Rangers do have some wiggle room here.

The Rangers are four points behind the Blue Jackets and six behind the Penguins, each of whom have a game in hand. With just 14 games remaining, the likelihood of moving up in the standings in remote. Plus, as has been postulated by many, avoiding the gauntlet that is the Metro in the playoffs would be wise. That not to say facing Ottawa or Montreal in the first round and one or the other and Boston in the second will be a walk in the park, especially seeing how each team has played against the Rangers, but it's a mildly easier route to take.

One unsaid aspect is that if Raanta plays, his value in the expansion draft rises. We - or at least I - hope that New York could find a way to keep Raanta, but a strong 2-3 week run as the #1 on top of what he has done already will solidify his status as probably one of the top goalies available. That will mean the cost to keep him in terms of a pick or player will rise, especially factoring in his low salary compared to production.

Coming into the season the goal was to play Lundqvist 55-58 games. His hot streak last month coupled with Raanta's injury resulted in Lundqvist playing more games than expected. He is now at 51 games played. New York has a game against LA on March 25 with a contest versus Anaheim the following day. After the team returns from California following a game in San Jose on March 28, there are just five games remaining on the regular-season schedule, the finale being on April 9 at home against the defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins. Lundqvist believes he could be back on March 25. If that occurs, he likely will play six of the next eight games, leaving him at 57 and fresh for the playoffs

With Nash and Grabner likely back, AV was able to reunite some old forward lines, with the Grabner-Kevin Hayes-J.T. Miller unit working together at practice, as well as the Buchnevich-Mika Zibanejad-Nash line. That kept together the Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Mats Zuccarello line, and created a mosh-mash fourth line of Glass-Oscar Lindberg-Jimmy Vesey. As a result, Brandon Pirri and Matt Puempel will sit, which is how it should work. When Jesper Fast returns In about week, it will be interesting to see who sits among Glass, Buchnevich and Vesey, with the fear of many it won't be Glass.

More to come on the Raanta play and sitting Buch for Glass.

PLUS/MINUS: Why we now love the Flames and other Fun Stuff!!

"PLUS/MINUS is the NHL's best stat, and the only one I use"
- Craig Button*

PLUS: The NHL Playoff race. The season is long, but it starts to get really exciting at this time of year, and while I don't like how the NHL tracks it's standings - to my knowledge, no one does - it does make for a pretty intense stretch-run.

Point of fact: You have to go back to a certain 2011-12 three goal collapse to find a game that I personally felt was as intense as last nights overtime Leafs victory.

MINUS: Gary Bettman going to Arizona and asking tax payers for more money. I personally think it's disgusting. The poverty rate in Arizona is well above the national average and they already have about 42 arenas and stadiums. Multiple studies have shown that there is no benefit financially for cities to spend tax money on arenas or stadiums.

Furthermore, if the Arizona market represents the great untapped bonanza that Bettman has always said it was, why not get the other 29 teams to chip in for an arena, since if the market is so wonderful, it will benefit the entire league?

Or here's a crazy idea: build a high-speed rail system to get people from downtown Phoenix to Glendale so that weeknight games can be easier to get to for people who work.

PLUS: The movie Paycheck, the greatest underrated movie of all time.

You shouldn't be surprised though, because pretty much all movies made from Phillip K Dick stories are also the best: Total Recall, Adjustment Bureau, Minority Report, Next, Blade Runner etc.

PLUS: I thought this was cool.

MINUS: Ovechkin. What is going on with this guy? He has gone 17 straight games without a goal at 5v5. He only has one point in his last eight games and, after going 300+ straight games with at least a shot, he has gone shotless in three games since the streak broke.

MINUS: All the movies nominated for the Oscars were crap. I didn't like the ones I saw and the ones I didn't looked super-depressing. Who wants to watch movies so that they feel like shit?

Here's my top seven movies of 2016:

1. Popstar: Never Stop Stopping
2. Batman v Superman
3. Suicide Squad
4. Hail Ceasar
5. Deadpool
6. Blonde Chick fights Shark
7. The Nice Guys

If anyone reads this and wants to hire a real film critic, I'm your man.

PLUS: It's funny how we get used to things. Already it seems "normal" that the Leafs have Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitch Marner, even though if you add in Sundin and Kessel, that is three of the five best players the franchise has had since they first traded Doug Gilmour in 1997.

PLUS: With their 5-4 Win last night vs the Devils, the Coyotes tied their team record for the season of consecutive regulation victories at one. They get the chance Tuesday against the weakling Avalanche to finally hit two.

Pretty cool to see Taylor Hall stopped on a penalty shot with only two minutes left.

PLUS: Seeing the Flames pass the Oilers. While I find it hard to cheer for the Flames because of their association with Burke, who, as a Leafs fan, I have long standing animosity towards, the Oilers are even worse.

Peter Chiarelli is like having twenty Burkes on your team, so I'm a Calgary man now, and I'm pumped to see them doing so well. Hamilton is a pleasure to watch and I hope he isn't hurt after what looked a little crazy last night when that skate came up on him.

MINUS: Aaron Ekblad getting another concussion. I just can't believe that we can't come up with technology to make helmets better. Or Something. It just really sucks to see a guy who's 21 take so many shots to the head. Hope he's OK.

MINUS: Criticism of Morgan Rielly is total BS in my opinion. The kid is great. He's a talented, smart, fast player with tons of offensive ability and a really, really high ceiling.

The Leafs have played him as their #1 all year, even if, at this point in time, Gardiner is clearly better. It's a move designed for the future, and if he's struggling at all, that's why. People ought to relax.

MINUS: People doubting Jake Gardiner: He's on pace for about 45 points and he leads his team in shots, scoring chances and goals against.

If you like advanced stats, he's your guy.

If you don't, he's got 35 points and is +25.

To be clear: he leads his team in offense and defense. What does he have to do to be perceived as the star he is, learn Karate?

PLUS: If you haven't been paying attention to the Sabres lately - and let's face it, why would you? - you might have missed Jack Eichel's emergence as one of the best players in the NHL.

First, I think this is probably the greatest consolation prize in the history of the NHL, and second, I don't think he's going to be much worse than McDavid or Matthews. I don't even think it's impossible he becomes the best of the three. Not likely, maybe, but not impossible.

MINUS: All the NHL players talking about Olympics. My opinion is shut up and do the jobs you are paid millions of dollars to do.

The Olympics are completely arbitrary. The World Cup features the exact same players playing the exact same game, it just doesn't happen to be put on by the third crookedest organization in the world after FIFA and the Trump Organization.

You can play the same game against the same people, only you will make more money and can do it at times when your fans will be awake. Someone ought to tell these guys they sound like idiots when they talk about the Olympics.

This is the one and only issue I have ever sided with the owners on. I ain't not fat-cat, so hopefully it's the last one too.

PLUS: He's no Dog the Bounty Hunter, but I am nevertheless a huge fan of Dog the Goalie. He's definitely better than Jonathan Bernier.


Toronto Maple Leafs - Thu 09 Mar 2017, 8:23 pm

Center still an area that needs to be addressed; Leafs vs Flyers

The Toronto Maple Leafs finally had their prayers answered 11 months ago when they won the draft lottery to be able to select a legitimate #1 center Auston Matthews. 

The club is stronger up-the-middle at the NHL level this season than they’ve been in recent memory, with Nazem Kadri scoring a career-high 27 goals and Tyler Bozak working well with linemates James van Riemsdyk and Mitch Marner, but the lack of organizational depth at center is something that GM Lou Lamoriello and Assistant GM Mark Hunter must address in the upcoming NHL Draft and over the summer.

Head coach Mike Babcock indicated that Bozak playing against the Philadelphia Flyers at Air Canada Center would be a game-time decision, after the center did not participate in Thursday’s morning skate. 

Bozak missed one game in late February due to an infected cut on his hand and his absence would necessitate moving veteran Brian Boyle up in the lineup and inserting recently acquired Eric Fehr on the fourth line. 

The Leafs in the short-term have journeyman Ben Smith and rookie Frederik Gauthier as depth options, but there is not much help available to them after that from the Toronto Marlies.

Sheldon Keefe’s crew is short-handed after dealing Byron Froese in the Boyle deal and shipping Colin Smith(AHL contract) to San Antonio. The Marlies have used winger Colin Greening up the middle at times and on Wednesday found it necessary to acquire veteran Cal O’Reilly on loan from the Rochester Americans.  

After the season, Boyle and Smith are unrestricted free agents, Fehr(who has played mostly on the wing in his NHL career) is rumored to headed to Las Vegas in the expansion draft, which leaves Gauthier with the inside track for the fourth line job. 

Babcock said last month that William Nylander (who played the entire 2015-16 season at center) will stay on the wing through next season, but could be moved back to the middle in 2018, which coincides with the end of Bozak’s contract.

The Leafs are chock full of promising forward prospects, but only 2012 draftee Dominic Toninato (a senior at Minnesota-Duluth) and 2016 fourth-rounder Adam Brooks are centers. 

Toronto may look to the KHL as they did with Nikita Soshnikov and Nikita Zaitsev (rumors of interest in Ak-Bars Kazan’s Vladimir Tkachev surfaced last fall), but it is more likely that the Leafs scouting department will be looking for reinforcements at center almost as much as they will be defense in the early rounds of the draft in Chicago this June.

(Natural News) After Natural News revealed the complete list of vaccine excipient ingredients published by the CDC earlier this week, the vaccine-pushing mainstream media exploded with accusations that falsely claimed Natural News was writing “fake news.” Some of the arguments backing this assertion included wildly uninformed opinions such as, “there’s no way the CDC would approve monkey kidney cells being injected into humans.”
Vaccine ingredient DENIALISM, it seems, is alive and well across the fakestream media.
As Natural News correctly reported, one of the many animal-derived ingredients used in vaccines and openly admitted by the CDC is African Green Monkey kidney cells. Apparently, this realization was just too much for the scientifically illiterate media (and wholly dishonest vaccine pushers) who insisted it couldn’t possibly be true.
Now, CDC has confirmed the Natural News story to be 100% accurate and true through several documents posted on the CDC website which openly admit that African Green Monkey kidney cells are used in vaccines approved by the CDC for immunizations across America.
Here’s the irrefutable proof, which also demonstrates that the mainstream media is pushing fake news about vaccines while Natural News is one of the very few journalism organizations that dares to publish real news about vaccines.
CDC confirms Natural News is 100% correct AGAIN
First, a CDC document titled “Vaccine Excipient & Media Summary” lists all the vaccine excipient ingredients found in CDC-approved vaccines. The URL for this document is:
As you can see from the screen shots of the document, below, the list of excipient ingredients is “current as of January 6, 2017,” according to the CDC.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 4 Vaccine-Excipient-and-Media-Summary-Page-1
You’ll also see that this document includes a row for a Smallpox vaccine known as “Vaccinia – ACAM2000.” The list of excipients in this vaccine are:
African Green Monkey kidney (Vero) cells, HEPES, human serum albumin, sodium chloride, neomycin, polymyxin B, Glycerin, phenol
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 4 Smallpox-African-Green-Monkey-Kidney-Page-3
Note the inclusion of African Green Monkey kidney cells in the list. And note carefully that the entire mainstream media is calling Natural News a liar for accurately citing this CDC document.
In addition, this same document also includes an ingredients list for another vaccine called Adenovirus, which contains the following ingredients, one of which is derived from aborted human fetal cells:
human-diploid fibroblast cell cultures (strain WI-38), Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle’s Medium, fetal bovine serum, sodium bicarbonate, monosodium glutamate, sucrose, D-mannose, D-fructose, dextrose, human serum albumin, potassium phosphate, plasdone C, anhydrous lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, polacrilin potassium, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, magnesium stearate, cellulose acetate phthalate, alcohol, acetone, castor oil, FD&C Yellow #6 aluminum lake dye
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 4 Adenovirus-Row-WI-38-Page-1
As you can see form this list, these CDC-approved vaccines are deliberately formulated with all sorts of highly toxic and questionable ingredients, including acetone, a toxic solvent, aluminum, artificial coloring chemicals, human blood components, dextrose (probably from GMO corn), cow blood components and a whole lot more.

FDA confirms these vaccines are licensed and approved for use in the United States

Are these vaccines made with African Green Monkey kidney cells and aborted human fetal cells really used in the United States?
This page from the FDA lists all the vaccines which are “licensed for use in the United States,” and it includes the vaccines containing African Green Monkey kidney cells and the WI-38 aborted human fetal cells.

LIVE Smallpox viruses grown in monkey kidneys, then harvested to be injected into YOU!

In addition to the CDC confirming Natural News is 100% correct through the documents listed above, the vaccine insert sheet itself also describes the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells.
From the insert sheet for the ACAM2000 smallpox vaccine, approved by the FDA in 2007 and still on the approved list:
Click the following link for a backup copy on Natural News servers.
ACAM2000, Smallpox (Vaccinia) Vaccine, Live, is a live vaccinia virus derived from plaque purification cloning from Dryvax® (Wyeth Laboratories, Marietta, PA, calf lymph vaccine, New York City Board of Health Strain) and grown in African Green Monkey kidney (Vero) cells and tested to be free of adventitious agents. ACAM2000 is provided as a lyophilized preparation of purified live virus containing the following non-active excipients: 6-8 mM HEPES (pH 6.5-7.5), 2% human serum albumin USP, 0.5 – 0.7% sodium chloride USP, 5% mannitol USP, and trace amounts of neomycin and polymyxin B.

Vaccine WARNINGS related to the vaccine using African Green Monkey kidney cells

Not surprisingly, this vaccine is known to cause extremely serious and even deadly side effects at a shockingly high rate. Here’s the WARNING box from the vaccine insert sheet, linked above:
See full prescribing information for complete boxed warning
Myocarditis and pericarditis (suspect cases observed at a rate of 5.7 per 1000 primary vaccinees (95% CI: 1.9-13.3)), encephalitis, encephalomyelitis, encephalopathy, progressive vaccinia, generalized vaccinia, severe vaccinial skin infections, erythema multiforme major (including STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME), eczema vaccinatum resulting in permanent sequelae or death, ocular complications, blindness and fetal death, have occurred following either primary vaccination or revaccination with live vaccinia virus smallpox vaccines. These risks are increased in certain individuals and may result in severe disability, permanent neurological sequelae and/or death [see Warnings and Precautions (5)].
Here’s a screen shot of the warnings section of the vaccine insert:
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 4 Warnings-and-Precautions-Page-1
Note the mention of “death” several times, and the shockingly high rate of serious adverse events at 5.7 per 1000 vaccinees. Notice also that this vaccine can cause permanent blindness, spontaneous abortions and severe neurological damage.
Note also that the entire vaccine pushing mainstream media will deny ever word of this even thought it’s printed right on the vaccine insert sheet. This shows you the extreme dishonesty and medical malpractice of all those who push vaccines while falsely claiming them to be “safe.”

CDC science paper from 2016 further confirms Natural News is 100% correct

For yet more irrefutable proof of the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells in CDC-approved vaccines, refer to this 2016 science paper published on the website entitled Use of Vaccinia Virus Smallpox Vaccine in Laboratory and Health Care Personnel at Risk for Occupational Exposure to Orthopoxviruses — Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), 2015.
As the CDC openly admits in this paper:
ACAM2000 is a vaccinia virus vaccine derived from a plaque-purified clone of the same New York City Board of Health strain that was used to manufacture Dryvax vaccine. ACAM2000 is grown in African green monkey kidney (Vero) cells and tested to be free of known adventitious agents (4). Safety data from ACAM2000 clinical trials indicate a similar safety profile to Dryvax, including a risk for serious adverse events (e.g., progressive vaccinia, postvaccinial encephalitis, and eczema vaccinatum) (5,6). Myopericarditis has also been associated with ACAM2000 and is estimated to occur at a rate of 5.7 per 1,000 primary vaccinees based on clinical trial data (6).

Who’s really lying? The vaccine pushers who refuse to tell the truth about vaccine ingredients

Reviewing the irrefutable proof from the CDC that confirms Natural News is 100% correct about the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells in vaccines, we have:
#1) CDC excipients sheet from January 6, 2017, documenting the use of African Green Monkey kidney cells in vaccines.
#2) The Smallpox ACAM2000 vaccine insert sheet, also openly discussing how live viruses are grown in African Green Monkey kidneys, then harvested for use in vaccines.
#3) science paper that further confirms and discusses the use of African Green Monkey kidneys in vaccines.
Yet, astonishingly, there isn’t a single corporate-run media outlet in the world that will acknowledge this irrefutable fact. Instead, they attack it and label it “fake news” for the simple reason that they don’t want you to know what’s really in vaccines.
It’s clear at this point that the corporate-run media owes Natural News an apology… and they owe their audiences an explanation. More importantly, now that you know about this particular cover-up, you’re also probably smart enough to know that they’re lying to you about everything else related to vaccines, too.
Don’t believe a single thing the corporate-run media tells you about vaccines. They are knowingly lying all the time. Stay informed at and Natural News.

Costco is the #1 organic food retailer in the U.S. - Sat 04 Mar 2017, 4:45 pm

Costco is the #1 organic food retailer in the U.S.
Topics tagged under 1 on Established in 2006 as a Community of Reality - Page 4 Costco-1024x741

Who would of though? According to this Well and Good report Costco is the number one retailer of organic food, beating out Whole Foods who came in a close second.
Whole Foods may win the prize for the most recognizable retailer when it comes to organic food, but the top honor when it comes to market share actually goes to…Costco.
Yup, the chain best known for its bulk stock and low prices reported $4 billion in organic food sales last year—that’s billion with a B. Whole Foods, by comparison, racked up about $3.6 billion in certified organic sales.
The chain best known for its bulk stock and low prices sold $4 billion worth of certified organic food last year—that’s billion with a B.
And this shift could have a major impact on you (and your healthy habits), even if you’re not a card-carrying member. For one thing, it’s proof that food shoppers across the board are prioritizing organics. And in other exciting news, it shows that it’s possible to sell certified organic produce (COP) at a competitive price—crucial for closing the healthy food gap.
