If I’m the Isles 7.5m is too risky when we’re a contender and could focus on better spending (or more reliable spending) - there will be TDL targets.

For the Devils I guess there’s no risk I guess just depends on the price


I just realized the Islanders haven't signed Beau or Pelech yet. They probably can't afford Vlad unless he's 50%

Why Rangers? Trading Tarasenko could mean they can’t bring back Zibanejad/Strome, and they need centre’s way more than wingers.

He'd trade for him only if Clifford is in the package

The Rangers really traded a better winger in Buchnevich just to get Tarasenko a few weeks later?


GM moment right there

Like to me Tarasenko makes 0 sense for the rangers who still need another top center to push them into contention. Now a guy like Eichel makes more sense

Like honestly the rangers have to many good wings and may need to move one out lul

The NHL is quickly becoming a NBA type of entertaining show.

-The Evander Kane news
-The Chicago Blackhawks
-The Jack Eichel sweepstakes and the beef with the Buffalo Sabres
-Logan Mailloux and Tony DeAngelo getting 2nd chances
-The Expansion Draft and everything around it.

Looks like I'm watching The Kardashians Show or whatever it' called.

Solid run. I dig de Grasse too.

Surprised that an European won though. That sport has been dominated by Americans/Caribbeans.


I was quite surprised too.

But then I heard he grew up in America so that made more sense.

Who claimed Fleury wouldn't play next season? That was an absurd contention. I understand he was caught off guard, but I can't imagine there was ever a shred of truth to this.

NHL will do everything in its power to downplay the Kane story. Just like the NFL downplayed the anthem protests and the NBA downplayed the China problems. A player gambling on the sport could be the biggest scandal in league history.

As far as Vlad to the Devils...I don't want him unless the Blues eat salary. Can't see the Rangers pursuing him at all.

NHL will down play the Chicago story, but not the Kane one imo

The Blackhawks story is the worst of the worst. The more I dig into it, the more credible it seems. Here's the rundown for those who don't know:
-A player (John Doe 1) who was assaulted/raped in 2010 by then Chicago Blackhawks video coach Brad Aldrich sued the Blackhawks in court, alleging that the organization knew about it and hushed it up to avoid bad press.
-TSN reported that John Doe 1 had first told of the assault to Blackhawks assistant coach Paul Vincent in 2010, whom he trusted, Vincent then brought the story to the front office, who fired Aldrich after 2010, but did not heed Vincent's advice to call the police. Vincent and others would continue to warn players to stay away from Aldrich.
-It is true that the Blackhawks fired Aldrich after 2010 (nobody knew why up until now), however, due to their alleged failure to report him to the police, he was able to get a new job coaching a boys high school team in Michigan. He subsequently assaulted/raped one of the boys there (John Doe 2, who filed another lawsuit against the Blackhawks) , was arrested and convicted, and is rotting away in prison today (IMO, rapists should get the death penalty).
-The Blackhawks have denied the charges of knowing about this and covering it up, and have filed to dismiss the charges in court.
-Assistant Commissioner Bill Daly said that there is NO ongoing investigation by the league into the matter.
-An anonymous player who was on the team in 2010 (not John Doe 1 or 2) claimed that "every guy on the team knew about it", and that "they (the front office of the Blackhawks) let him go to work with minors. They let this happen."
-Brent Sopel, another player on the 2010 team, tweeted "The front office should be in jail", while Daniel Carcillo, who was on the Flyers team that lost to the Blackhawks in the 2010 Cup Final said "WE heard the whispers of what Aldrich did. Hard to believe that most people in the organization didn't know."
- If what the anonymous player (who spoke to The Athletic saying "Every guy on the team knew about it") said is true, and the front office (John McDonough, Al MacIssac, James Gary and possibly even Stan Bowman) knew about this through Vincent's reporting and did nothing, that is beyond horrific. Admittedly, it would be hard for the league to do much about it now, but that's still no reason to not at least start an investigation into the matter.

They need to be out front and transparent with both because the public (and players) has a right to know. The cover-up is always worse than the crime (in a PR sense). Obviously the alleged crimes in CHI are very serious.

In the NFL it would compare to Deshaun Watson (only difference is that Watson has a legal case)
In the NBA, it would compare to Harden

Well the NHL isn’t doing an investigation because a I think it’s a public investigator that is doing it
