Recipes for this weeks FoodShare’s DWS box.

When I don’t know if it’s the name that triggered their ire, but they complained about the price of this box and shared my post so that I could get a bunch of angry messages about it for no good reason. After thinking about it, I don’t really take issue with the price or the contents on any level, but ultimately that’s my call to make. I realize that sometimes people just don’t buy a bunch of vegetables on a regular basis, so they may not know how much things cost in stores or otherwise, b...

Too Much Money Spent

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, It was another week for the economics of the NHL to defy the laws of, well, economics. This is a league, let’s not forget, that has lost hundreds of millions of dollars in the past 18 months because of COVID-19. Maybe a billion. Maybe more. To deal with these losses, the NHL has added about 25 NHL jobs through expansion. This has happened at a time when all 31 teams were limited to just 28 home games in the 2020-21 season. For those games, the ...

Is The Goaltending In Toronto Good Enough To Win The Cup?

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, While the Tampa Bay Lightning won back-to-back championships with four-time Vezina Trophy finalist Andrei Vasilevskiy as their unquestioned starter, the line between elite No. 1 goalie and flavour-of-the-month has never been so blurred — or so confusing. Maybe that is why so many teams are now treating the position as though it is the NHL’s version of a bullpen. It’s all about quantity — not quality — these days, with teams preferring tandems...

Dodgers’ David Price talks potential deals with Andrew Friedman

LOS ANGELES — David Price has Andrew Friedman’s phone number and he’s not afraid to use it. “I mean, I say go and get (Jacob) deGrom.

I think he’s hitting .350 or whatever it is. He’s a pretty good pitcher as well.” Price said the deGrom trade is “just something I kind of say in the clubh...

Accel doubles down on 1Password, which just raised $100M more at a $2B valuation

Would You Trade Mitch Marner For Rasmus Dahlin?

from Travis Yost of TSN, One of the biggest challenges they have right now is a top-heavy roster on the cap front – not an issue for teams winning through their stars, but again, that hasn’t been the case in Toronto. Although Auston Matthews appears worth every penny, players like Mitch Marner ($10.9-million AAV) continue to be evaluated. Top-pairing defenceman Morgan Rielly’s contract is another issue. The deal expires at the end of next season and he is looking at a raise, one he pr...

Leafs Won’t Do A Sign And Trade With Zach Hymen

from Kristen Shilton of TSN, According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Hyman is set to sign a long-term deal with the Edmonton Oilers when free agency officially begins next week.
