damn, careers gotta be over - guy hasnt played in so long


Herniated discs can be treated to where a guy can play for a few years without issues

But yeah his career's probs gonna be shorter than it should as often after those years the issue will come back and this time in force

Good luck to him as man I have seen guys go through it and its not fun

Was gonna report the Hague thing but wasnt 100% certain

Got a feeling until Sandin or him sign were at a stalemate as they are waiting for each other to make another comparison. Thats my guess

But yeah I figured Nolan is probs close to being done. As he has suffered to many concussions for his own good. Still is an example though of Hextall's incompetence in drafting like next to the NYR how can you blow a 2nd OA pick that badly. Cale Makar, Miro Heiskenen, and Elias Petterson were sitting right there along with Suzuki, Thomas, Ottinger, etc.

And yes I know scouts arent always right but hes an example of going against scouts and getting an L as unlike what Shanahan did with Nylander over some big gudbranson like Dman his decision ended up badly hurting the flyers.

I am actually surprised not 1 team offer sheeted him. It’s a tool GM’s refuse to use


No one OS because Carolina scared everyone

As the fear of retaliation has basically made OS go from endangered to potentially extinct. Probs wont see another OS for 5 more years and by 2045 maybe 10 if were lucky lul

Cause we already saw teams would rather give guys like Chiarot or Gubdranson god awful deals rather than pay a 2nd and get Sandin or Liligren

Either way im fine with it as keeping those two on 1.4mill x 2 year deals (once you know who signs) will be a nice ending

Lou lamoriello interviews are always frustrating + hilarious at the same time. Guy should just retire

Well hes in the last year of his contract and I don't think he's going to get another one from the isles unless they win the cup (which is unlikely)

Like there is 0 competition for any starting spots after listening to his interview IMO. He says there is an open competition for 6th and 7th D spot while saying Sebastian Aho was outstanding last season (which means hes getting the 6D spot no matter what)

Knowing him if NYI let him go hes gonna get a GM job with another team and continue the cycle. Looking at Winnipeg or Philly

As thats just how he is. His contracts are good to a degree but his other ideas arent the greatest.

He contradicts himself a lot and sometimes his way of doing things is outdated.

Like Sebastian is usually the exact opposite of a player he covets, but Lou must feel he paid his dues or something by being the 7th defenseman for the last 3 years. So he's pretty a shoe-in for 6D, he's essentially a lou guy now.

reminder that a PTO is not a contract


They could have signed Milano to a PTO instead of Virtanen

The flyers are going to be forced into a rebuild. Provorov and Sanheim should be traded before the deadline, JVR (50%) . Theyll get to draft one of fantilli, bedard or mitchkov.

what if they tried to and he wasn't interested so they had to explore other options? The Oilers can't force players to sign with them. Plus he is out of the Oilers price range, the Oilers have no cap space and need to sign McLeod still so Milano who will most likely get 1 mil or more depending on his performance at camp is out the picture.

So whats the deal with everyone ****ting on EDM for giving Virtanen a PTO if he was found not guilty? You can argue he's a bad hockey player, but not a criminal

You guys have to put some faith in the legal system and their decision

The problem's more or less that sexual assault is always an uphill battle for the woman ( but that's another discussion for somewhere else)
