Now We Wait For A Decision On Tyler Bertuzzi

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News, The Wings are proposing $3.15 million, while Bertuzzi is asking for $4.25 million. Bertuzzi will get a big raise under either figure, as he made $1.4 million last season.... Under the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement, an arbitrator must decide within 48 hours of the hearing's conclusion. But unlike in years past, the team and the player are no longer permitted to continue negotiating after the session begins. The arbitrator’s d...

Notes On A Saturday Night

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - The odd equation of this coming NHL season: The more games that are played, the more money team owners will lose. Don’t expect a season much longer than 56 games. And don’t expect players to earn much more than 54% of their total salaries, with increased escrow, already-agreed-to discounts, and likely more back-and-forth negotiations before play is set to resume sometime in January. - If you were Joe Thornton, and you really wanted to win t...

The Leafs Have Been Here Before

from Damien Cox at the Toronto Star, Promising players such as Kasperi Kapanen and Andreas Johnson are gone. Joe Thornton and Wayne Simmonds have arrived as replacements, formerly elite players signed at bargain prices to ease the salary-cap crunch but also to add character in lieu of the offensive stats they once produced. If you know your Maple Leafs history, these manoeuvres are as old as the uniform itself. Once upon a time they even worked. Players such as Andy Bathgate, Red Kell...

Building Bridges Between Private Bar Services and Community Legal Clinics

Community legal clinics have always had strong linkages with the communities they serve and have developed connections with community organizations. They have done this by working with community service agencies and voluntary organizations through different forms of outreach to identify people with legal problems who would probably not otherwise request assistance and by using holistic and integrated approaches to service delivery that identify people experiencing multiple problems and sometimes...

Does This Mean No Canadian Division?

from Bryan Passifiume of the Toronto Sun, The federal government will replace mandatory 14-day quarantines with rapid COVID-19 tests for international air passengers, the Sun has learned. The move will mandate that arriving passengers be required to submit to a rapid COVID-19 test to ensure they are free from the potentially deadly respiratory disease upon arrival, and replace the problematic and rarely enforced mandatory two-week quarantine for all incoming international travellers. ...

Psykhe secures Seed funding to match consumer personalities to fashion products

In an overcrowded market of online fashion brands, consumers are spoilt for choice on what site to visit. They are generally forced to visit each brand one by one, manually filtering down to what they like. Most of the experience is not that great, and past purchase history and cookies aren’t much to go on to tailor user experience. If someone has bought an army-green military jacket, the e-commerce site is on a hiding to nothing if all it suggests is more army-green military jackets… Instead, P...

Five things the Twins could learn from the AL champion Tampa Bay Rays

The 2020 postseason ended for the Twins in familiarly frustrating fashion — with a sweep (this time at the hands of the Astros) that was as meek as it was disappointing. But the 2020 postseason continues for two teams Tuesday with the start of the World Series. And one of those teams in particular, Tampa Bay, should give Twins fans at least a little glimmer of hope for the future. Simply put: If the Rays can make it this far, a lot of teams can. That's obviously not to say it's easy. It is to sa...

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 3 Post-Production Was Done from Home

Last week, word broke that Star Trek: Discovery had already been renewed for season 4, and that the new season would start production next month. This raises one big question: how? As we all know, the coronavirus – which is still very much around, with cases starting to spike again in the United States – has made production on TV and movies somewhat tricky right now. But Discovery has an ace up their sleeve: home-based post-production. At least, that’s what was used to finish the recently-premi...
