I think i must have been pretty shocked by that the first time I hopped the border...
I remember flying in to LA a few decades ago.

Cab driver said "Where ya from?"

I said BC.

He said "Where's that?"

I said you know 'British Columbia'.

He said "Yeah, that's in England right?"

Then at the restaurant I asked for a serviette.

She said "What's that??"

I said, you know, to wipe with.

She looked at me like I was from Mars (and I may as well have been).

I had to act it out like Charades.

She says "Oh you mean a napkin!"

Twas weird because I used to hang at Birch Bay a lot and never saw anything like dat dere.

But with BB being pretty much half-Canadian every summer I guess they learned a few things.

lol the transitional period we should call it. They were always more familiar with our customs in the border towns. Still, seeing grits on the diner menus in Blaine always made me smile.

Lovely spot Birch Bay.

The McDonalds 'french fries' when they arrived on the scene were quite different than our local chips as well. They were long skinny string bean-looking things, while local chips were much thicker cut. They were the sort of thing that still come with a real fish and chip dinner. People really did like the new fangled french fry things though. The rest is history I guess...

I think flat cap for the coming couple of years is the biggest reason this deadline will be a flop.

As we say at the start of the season, mid level veteran talent is cheap these days.
Players moved at this time of year are generally short term rentals.....I'll lay odds that fear wins the day and GM's don't touch a Covid player right now.

Hell, fear is winning the day everywhere else.

Oilers rumours, they are contemplating bringing back Taylor Hall with a sign and trade, around $6M per, keeping him and RNH.

While Buffalo would want a 1st, and take back a cap dump like Neal or Kassian.
While it seems unrealistic that the Oilers can make the money work, MacLean said his “reasonable source” indicated the Oilers were looking at a deal that has Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins both under contract with the Oilers for next season, and at no more than $12 million combined. In other words, if these discussions are happening, it’s a trade and sign scenario where Hall takes around $5.5 – $6 million.
As Staples points out, money would have to go back to Buffalo, which means moving a forward likeZack Kassian or James Neal, possibly a goalie like Mikko Koskinen. The Oilers’ first-round pick would also have to be included in the deal.

LMAO!

Hall back to where he started. Kassian back to where he started.

For this to work RNH also has to be OK with no raise in pay, and Hall has to accept a hefty cut. The latter makes sense, the former I'm not sure.

Yup, back to the cities where they became snowmen.

Wonder if their old associates would give them a call.
