Forbes says the Leafs are roughly worth 1.15 billion dollars. Only NHL team to make it into the top 50, being the worlds 26th most valuable sports franchise.

Hey, @Pent_House , you're familiar with Eastern Europe and all, who shot down that plane?  Just an untrained and trigger happy moron or is this all just Putin trying to stir up trouble?

I'm surprised how many think Kevin Dineen is the new Marlies coach.

@Jmessih I've seen that too eh, no fear of them going anywhere anytime soon. NHL would be nothing without us!

@MaxwellHowe @Pent_House Who really knows, you have to be on the ground to really have correct info like that. My gut would say Russia or pro-russian separatists, no difference really. Could have been Ukraine but I doubt it, unless they mistook it for a figher jet or some bs. 


Historically Russian gov't is the bad guy in our corner of the world.

I feel really bad for Uke's though, they've been torn between Poland and Russia for hundreds of years, and they're always in the worst financial and living conditions. They're the poorest on the bloc since forever. My grandparents have been calling and telling me about the massive amounts of refugees and victims coming into Poland.

So one theory they're posing now is what I was saying earlier about the passenger jet being confused for a military aircraft, but pro-russian forces shooting it down.



I'm just wondering why Malaysian Airlines would fly through a war-zone.. not a great idea at all.

At big picture yea it's East vs West but saying Ukraine has fuck all to do with it is short-sighted bro. Russia is going to do everything possible to keep Ukraine under the wing, as it's their last territory blocking them from Western Forces. If Ukraine moves along with the West, the West will be right up against the Russian Border. This same exact shit was happening in Poland 20 years ago, when we were the frontline country beside the West. There's going to be all kind of other bs  and sub-plots surrounding it, but that's my view on it.

@MaxwellHowe @Xxxxxnew @Pent_House IMAX fills almost your whole field of vision, unlike the theatre where you can see the frame around the screen if you're not too close. It's an anchor for your brain, unlike IMAX.

IMO, what's going on in Ukraine (and this plane)....is just Russia poking the US.  IMO, ultimately, Russia wants the US to lose it's reserve status.  Russia has already done smaller deals with China involving local currencies and that pissed off the US greatly.  Now there are more deals on the horizon...much bigger deals....which will again be in local currencies.  The other thing is gold.....the US has no gold left (or very little).  Ultimately, Russia (and China....who own a huuuuuuge portion of the US's national debt) want the force the issue on reserve currency (ie-US will lose their standing) and to bring down the US financially.  Ukraine is just a pawn in the whole thing (imo).

I understand that whole line of thinking but Russia didn't start this whole mess bro.


Russia is on the defensive while the west is on the offensive. Ukraine was trying to get away to start this whole thing, so I don't really see it as Russia poking, it's more like the West poking and trying to nab another slice of the pie. This whole shit started when Ukrainians wanted to join the EU.

Oh, you could be right in who started what with who...and I understand (and respect) your closeness to the situation here.  I just think that in the grand scheme of things, Ukraine a red herring.   What's going on in Ukraine won't amount to a hill of beans to the US getting bent over financially.
