BarMutt,  you have 7 selections -- only 6 are allowed. 

For mine, I eliminated the Columbus @ Tampa Bay game and inserted Carolina in place of Columbus (for the @NY Rangers game).

British-based financial magazine,.The Economist, named Toronto as best overall city in the world to live in.

The criteria was based on business environment, livability, democracy, security, and safety.  Toronto did not finish first in all of the categories -- it placed fourth in the business environment & livability lists, and eight in the safest cities list.  It also ranked at #70 out of 140 cities when it came to living expenses.

Generally-speaking, out of the too 25 cities in the world, Toronto topped 'em all overall.

Second to Toronto, Montreal came in second, while Stockholm and Amsterdam were third and fourth, respectively.

Here's the list of the Too 10 best overall:
1    Toronto
2    Montreal
3    Stockholm
4    Amsterdam
5    San Francisco
6    Melbourne
7    Zurich
8    Washington D.C.
9    Sydney
10  Chicago

Here's the story:

Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: Target closing all Canadian stores
« on: Today at 09:55:42 AM »
Obviously Target didn't do their homework, so to speak, the way Walmart did, in opening stores in Canada.

I usually received Target's flyers and liked the products they had but was clearly disappointed in finding a store near or close to my area.  The 'nearest' Target location was at CentrePoint Mall, and I don't shop there.

I have the pick of the litter, so to speak, when it comes to Walmart -- there are 2 locations near my residential area, and with plenty of space (before the space was taken up by developers), Target could very well have plopped a store somewhere.

Too bad. They had their chance in Canada and they blew it, figuratively speaking.  Poor business decision-making on many fronts.

4 Winnipeg          - Dallas @ Winnipeg
3 San Jose          - Chicago @ San Jose

Let's see now.  .500 at worst.  3-7 at best.
Since when have the Leafs become so predictable?  Or have they?

Capuano: Okposo will be out 6-8 weeks with an upper-body injury. #Isles

Oh, great.  He's been having a good year so far and now this.
Feel bad for the Islanders.

Kessel, along with two others, were the only ones without a point in the game. 

Cause for concern? !  What's it gonna take for him to score??!! :-\

Team Toews beats Team Foligno 17-12.

A couple of records set:
- NHL All-Star game record (most goals)
- Most goals by one team (Team Toews' 17 goals)
- Most goals in one period (11)
- Most goals by one player (4 by John Tavares) -- joining a feat accomplished by 5 others on the all-time list (Gretzky, Lemieux, Heatley, Gartner and Damphousse)
- Most points in an ASG (6 by Jakub Voracek) -- tying a previous ASG record (set by Lemieux)

MVP was Ryan Johannsen (as chosen by a fan vote).

Oh yeah,  Ovechkin got the car for a good cause, of course).

Yep, awesome.   This is the real skills competition not the ASG.

I'm disappointed in Tom Brady that he would go so far as to "cheat" this way.  I don't wish to believe Tom's a desperate cheater, but, hey Brady, say it ain't so.I still like Brady as a person and a quarterback, but as a player, I'll reserve judgement though some respect is lost here.

Unless I'm missing something, Tigger only had 7 points.

Yes, he did.  I mistakenly counted the 6 he gave Ottawa.

Will be redone,  and thanks for pointing it out.
