    Always be careful of the selfies. Watch the top right corner.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Pavelski, Kopitar, Voracek, Giroux, Little, Benn, Thornton, Galchenyuk, Eriksson Ek, Lucic, Stepan, Simmonds, Dadonov, Lee, Bailey

    Clearly the folks responsible for setting up displays have never played dominos. lol


    The pen is mightier than the sword...unless someone is trying to stab you with a sword. Then, it's the sword...definitely the sword.

    The times we live in.

    Although those items are not set up with much forethought. You do have to cater to the lowest common denominator.


    May god protect you from his followers.

    I'm sure it was valued at $200,000 in art once it was knocked over.
    (Staged? May-be. The video appears to be from a hand-held... whereas a high overviewing room camera - might... be... um, stable?)

    Couldn't agree more. Any time I see something like this, I immediately become skeptical.

    This looks like the crappiest gallery ever. The guy who did it prolly appraised his own stuff at that amount.

    $200,000 worth of stuff... I think the museum would do a better job at stabilizing the platforms and making sure things were secure... how much does a few large screws cost to get those things attached to the floor.

    For all the reasons mentioned this is either staged or the art pieces are actually worth pennies.

    Prolly not allowed to bolt those tables into the ground because it's a ever changing gallery where those tables might not be used the next day.

    The biggest announce to me is that the tables aren't even the same height, there's no organization to it if it's a real gallery.

    Since it doesn't mention him by name I assume he will pass... although that massive crowd might make him nostalgic for his inauguration.

    I believe that's a record-setting crowd... for such a shitty art gallery.
