The NFL season is due to start soon, which is a good thing considering my manager at work* changed me from the Sunday weekend shift to the Saturday, meaning I get Sundays off.
That doesn't seem like an appropriate header for a hockey post, but all these posts wind up having a point a little further down. Please continue reading this blog post, and if you don't enjoy it, I'll refund you all the money you spent purchasing access to this website.

This isn't my usual type of post by any means, and I ultimately can't tell someone how to run their own website, but I feel like an outlet with a lot of reach and viewership should probably be called out if people are oblivious to a serious issue involving them. So today, let's talk about HFBoards and link bias.

It’s August. With PK Subban finally signing a monster eight year deal with the Habs, hockey news has become scarce.
It’s surprising that it took the Canadiens that long to figure it out with their franchise player, and for a while it looked like the two sides were miles apart.
What was more surprising to me was that Subban signed for eight years.
Why is that surprising? It’s because Subban is from Toronto and everyone knows that every kid from Toronto only dreams of playing for the Leafs.
He was slated to be a UFA in 2016 along with superstar centre Steven Stamkos. The two grew up in the GTA and even played on the same team for some time (pictured above).
They could’ve done it again, playing for their hometown team, the team they grew up with. It would’ve been glorious.

I'm going to partake in the biggest tourist-trap weekend of the year in Toronto. Specifically, I'm headed down to Molson Ampitheatre for two days of OVO Fest. Drake puts on an awesome main event night, and I'm excited to see what the Outkast hype is all about today (I was too young for their early material and in my 'lol le wrong generation give me old rock' stage' in the end of the first part of their career). With that said, I'll be gone for most of the day today and tomorrow, so I'm going to cop out and, well..

For the second consecutive day, the header photo of my article is probably much more important than the actual post. In any event, I was messaged on AskFM (my inbox is overflowing with questions at the moment, but I want to space out full-on mailbags a bit) a few days ago, specifically asking the most important hockey question I've ever received.
Which Pokémon would you want playing for the Leafs?
Let's try to nail this one down.
