Per the NHLPA CBA
Article 9.1 (d)
In the event that an 18 or 19 year-old player signs with a club, but does not play in 10 games in the first season, the period of the entry level system will be extended (1) year.
Above is a summary of the rule by me. You can read the whole thing because it wouldn't let me copy and paste it, because Adobe Reader is gayer then Governor Jim McGreevey .
There are tons of things that bother me.
But right up at the top has to be programs for women. What am I talking about?
What does this have to do with Jordan Staal you ask?
Well let me explain……..dammit let me explain!
So, I am watching one of the greatest shows of all time ER. And over on ABC, Greys Anatomy just got done with another bullcrap show.
And having to watch this lady on TV is gross.
She is one of the top ten ugLiest people on TV right now. Her face looks like an old catcher's mitt.
Dr. John Carter( The young and upcoming doctor)
Dr. Peter Benton( The hard ass black guy doctor)
Dr. Doug Ross( George Clooney if he were a doctor)
Dr. Mark Greene ( when he died was one of the most surreal moments of TV ever)
Dr. Luka Kovac (tough Crotia who is as unstable as Theo Fleury)
Dr. Kerry Weaver (The crazy Lesbian we all know)
The list could go on and on.
Point Being: ER is like the Penguins pre-2002.
The Pens and ER were alike. A factory of winning. ER won a Golden Globe. Another 105 wins & 229 nominations, Penguins 2 Stanely Cups. 11 straight years in the playoffs.
But then ER, like the Penguins, got tired. Forced storylines,(bad draft picks, poor development), no leader of the ER (Lemieux retires) lead to unrest.
But last year, ER, after some new casting, and the Pens with Crosby, are headed back to winning terrority.
This is were Staal comes in. Shows like Greys Atamony have copied ER success, and the public's thirst for medical dramas(shows like Chicago Hope on CBS) has grown.
But see, these shows never last. Everything happens so quickly, and you don’t have time to see the evolution of characters.
