    Kadri signed in Calgary and they traded Monahan to Montreal. Maybe the craziest off season for any team.

    Mine too, the very last show before the Jimmy Chamberlain debacle.

    That trade seems to make more sense for Calgary than Florida. Unless there was some indication that Huberdeau wasn’t going to stay next year. I guess the upside for Florida is they are getting back a guy that is 5 years younger.

    Wow, I actually feel bad for Calgary. They looked like a solid team for the near future, now Tkachuk wants out too. I can’t remember a team losing two 100pt guys in the same offseason. I’ve heard the “arena is a turd” theory ossed around along with the taxes and COVID lockdowns in Canada being a...

    Didn’t see that coming.

    Well he wanted 6 years, so I guess 5 is a win. I like the Avs approach though, they let Grubauer walk after being a Vezina Trophy finalist and Kuemper after winning a cup. They aren’t overpaying for goalies and both were due for raises.

    I don’t think Kuemper is an elite goalie, but he is solid. And if they are going to continue to leave the goalie out to dry with that defense, I guess Kuemper/Lindgren should fair better than Vanecek/Samsonov. Guess the Leafs are aiming for another 1st round loss with Murray/Samsonov… that’s...

    That’s awesome. Can’t be many of those around.

    Ouch that one hurts for sure. Surprised they wouldn’t have shipped him out earlier if they got the feeling he wouldn’t resign. Or maybe they really thought a solid run at the cup was possible and kept him anyway. I don’t think he will live up to whatever he signs, especially if it is NJ or PHI...

    Taking a page from the Caps playbook. Would have been weird seeing Malkin in another uniform anyway.

    So I guess the Caps are going to make a hard push for Kuemper with Vanecek traded to NJ and Samsonov not being qualified. I understand not qualifying Samsonov, they would have likely paid him more after arbitration. But why not attempt to trade him off, unless there was just no market. Tomorrow...

    So In Flames can still write a solid melodeath tune they just chose not to for years! I hope the new album has more of that.

    They were good prospects… At this point they look like career backups at best. They are both wildly inconsistent and often “Lose you games” kind of bad. The team typically wins in spite of them, very rarely have either stole a game and certainly not in the playoffs.

    Free agency should be interesting this year. I know the Caps will be busy. They really have no choice if they want to compete. Backstrom had hip surgery and is expected to be out all next season at a minimum. I think he probably played his last game. Only 2 other NHL players that had that...
