    Unless it’s another Brackett situation, who said he wanted to go back to the US preferably near his Boston home & family.

    Luck and connections, which is why even the best scouts have a half life of 3-5 years from when they start their gigs. Al Murray for example, was able to leverage his Hockey Canada background & developed contacts for approx his first 4-years getting line of sight into the likes of Point...

    2020 NHL Entry Draft

    The mother of the disabled kid said Miller’s friend apologized to the kid and family a while back but Miller never has offered anything resembling an explanation let alone an apology. Kid is a pure 100% dickrash.

    Habs News & Notes: Regular Season 2019-2020

    With Allen as backup I expect Price’s sv% will be much closer to, or above .920 vs .909 simply due to rest, which would translate to upwards of 10-points in the standings, add on Allen’s likely performance vs Kinkaid et al of recent past backups glory..

    Rumours, Innuendos and Flat out B.S.: 2019-20 Edition

    Vatanen would be icing on the cake for this team. Play 3rd pair RD and PP QB. The longer UFAs remain unsigned the more likely it’ll be a 1-year deal at $1.5M or less, and he’s only 29. Habs should also loan Juulsen to a Euro league (SEL), so they won’t have to worry about protecting or losing...

    Around The League: 2020 Free Agency, Prelude to 2021

    I’ve posted my theory a few times now...can’t remember the last time so many large market US teams had this kind of available cap space yet remained inactive through draft & first couple of weeks of UFA, definitely looks to me as if US team owners have mandated payroll restrictions... Flyers...
