    Say whatever you want about this guy and his lack of character. He did call quite a few of his shots here. Also note. Wiki is not in the habit of getting involved with street crime in DC so why did they get involved in the DNC staffer murder? There is still much to this story we don’t know https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-18/kim-dotcom-let-me-assure-you-dnc-hack-wasnt-even-hack

    On Friday, Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order in United States v. Flynn that, while widely unnoticed, reveals something fascinating: A motion by Michael Flynn to withdraw his guilty plea based on government misconduct is likely in the works. Just a week ago, and thus before Sullivan quietly directed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team to provide Flynn’s attorneys “any exculpatory evidence,” Washington Examiner columnist Byron York detailed the oddities of Flynn’s case. The next day, former assistant U.S. attorney and National Review contributing editor Andrew McCarthy connected more of the questionable dots. York added even more details a couple of days later. Together these articles provide the backdrop necessary to understand the significance of Sullivan’s order on Friday.

    No, sounds like something came up at least as early as Saturday and because they were up by so much basically rested him for the third.

    So how badly is Burns injured................
  11. SAN JOSE — Joe Thornton goes down. No problem. Life without Tomas Hertl: 2-0. The Sharks continue to survive a tightly-contested Western Conference playoff race with a forward group that’s heavily depleted by injuries to Thornton, Hertl and Joel Ward. Without them, the Sharks found a way beat the scorching-hot Dallas Stars (34-21-4), who entered Sunday’s game having won six of their last seven games while earning points in 19 of their last 25. The win gives the Sharks (32-19-8) a three-point lead over the Anaheim Ducks for second place in the Pacific Division, and a four-point edge over the Calgary Flames, the Western Conference’s ninth-place team, as the team heads out on a challenging road trip through the Central Division Tuesday. Here’s what we learned in the Sharks 5-2 win at SAP Center. 1. Brent Burns leaves with an undisclosed ailment. The Sharks can’t seem to get through three periods of hockey without receiving a major-injury scare these days. In addition to Thornton, Hertl and Ward’s injuries, Marc-Edouard Vlasic left a game for a large chunk of the first period on Jan. 31, Logan Couture took a puck to the mouth on Feb. 2 and Dylan DeMelo suffered a minor injury last week against the Vancouver Canucks. Things took a serious turn Sunday when Burns left the bench for the last 16:35 of the third with an undisclosed ailment that also forced him to miss a significant portion of Saturday’s practice. Losing Burns would be a devastating blow to the Sharks who rely heavily on his shot production from the blue line to create offense. The reigning-Norris Trophy winner leads the team in points (50), assists (40), shots (246), power play scoring (22 points) and time on ice (25:13). The Sharks might be able to absorb Thornton’s loss up front, but a significant injury to Burns would be a completely different challenge to tackle. But the Sharks expressed confidence Sunday that Burns’ ailment isn’t serious. “He’ll be fine,” defenseman Justin Braun said. “He’s just dealing with something, but he’ll be fine. He’s that way. He won’t miss a game.” When asked if he feels the same way as Braun, captain Joe Pavelski said: “for sure.” Head coach Pete DeBoer offered a more tempered assessment of Burns’ situation, though. “I don’t know yet,” he said when asked about the defenseman’s health. “I think he’ll…well, we’ll see.” The Sharks coach is expecting Burns to travel with the team on its upcoming road trip. 2. Mikkel Boedker is playing his best hockey with the Sharks. After a season-and-a-half, Boedker is finally hearing the message: play a hard straight-lined game. “I guess when your coach is saying that to you every single day for two years something clicks. I don’t know,” DeBoer said, trying to explain Boedker’s surge over the last six weeks. It’s possible that the coach’s words finally hit home when Boedker served as a healthy scratch in Winnipeg on Jan. 7. After that, Boedker finally started living up to the potential of the four-year, $16 million contract he signed with the Sharks in July 2016. He leads the Sharks in goals (8) since that day, collecting 13 points in 19 games. What’s changed? “Maybe the mindset of being a little more aggressive, being a little more direct,” Boedker said. Boedker got rewarded for putting a shot on net at 15:08 of the first Sunday, the most direct of direct plays. The goal would make a good Southwest Airlines “Wanna Get Away” commercial as Alexander Radulov tipped Boedker’s shot past goalie Ben Bishop in front of the Stars net. Twitter Ads info and privacy He scored his second 2:15 later, giving the Sharks a 4-0 lead by one-timing a Chris Tierney feed on the power play. Twitter Ads info and privacy In training camp, Boedker said he wanted to model his game after the style of hockey that Pavelski plays. The Sharks captain is seeing a shift in how the 28-year-old forward is attacking the game. “His game, it’s a little harder, a little simpler,” Pavelski said, adding: “That’s how this team plays. When we play good as a group, everyone’s bought into that and he’s been really good for us in that aspect.” 3. Role reversal DeBoer joked that he “drank heavily” after the Stars clobbered the Sharks 6-0 on New Year’s Eve to wash away the memory of his team’s worst loss of the season. Twitter Ads info and privacy He should probably send a bottle over to Stars head coach Ken Hitchcock after Sunday’s game. “I don’t know how he drowns his sorrows,” DeBoer said with a chuckle. The Sharks and Stars swapped roles in the rematch as DeBoer’s team jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first by scoring on four of their first five shots. In addition to Boedker’s goal, Pavelski got on the board with his fifth goal in six games by spinning around in the slot and flipping a backhander into the top shelf just 27 seconds into the first. Melker Karlsson scored his first in 13 games by stuffing in a puck that bounced off the end boards and the back of the net from below the goal line.

    The problem is nobody seems to know what a good goal is if there is varying levels of contact. That is not good.
  13. Happy to host you for this. Off to the dirty Oil we go. Crash at my place after.
