Not much to it but to do it this morning, so let’s get right in there. Yesterday’s entry into the 2020 Top 25 Under 25 — #23 F Tyler Tullio — marks the first 2020 Draft Pick to crack the list. That he was a fifth rounder should give some indication as to what kind of skill he possesses. Check Corey’s latest for the details (link below).

Otherwise, I’ll leave you with a tweet that came to me through a Twitter discussion I started because I cannot fathom why so many fans are desperate to defend billionaires trying to squeeze more money out of the players:
I think one of the most insidious tricks perpetrated by owners of sports teams is convincing fans that their franchise is a regular business concerned with margins rather than an asset that gains value over time and just keep the books hidden from the light of scrutiny.— ghostshan (@theghostshan) November 19, 2020
Take care of yourselves. Stay home. Wear your mask if you can’t. Socially distance regardless. Alberta is going nuts with COVID-19 cases right now, and it is imperative that you do your part. Take care, and we’ll see you Monday.
(Actually Saturday, as our T25 U25 will be rolling along through the weekend.)
