NYR are apparently involved so they're probably trying to work out details. Or someone told Dorion that TBL are in the same division as OTT.

Itís becoming really hard to hate the Habs and Sens. Itís now where you have to feel sorry for them.

That's been my feeling toward the Leafs over the years. Now, I find myself following (caring?) more about players now than teams. I think fantasy hockey has a lot to do with it.

Its pretty amazing the Lightning have $47 million in cap committed to 7 players in 2022-2023 already.

If somehow the Karlsson trade and subsequent contract was to happen, that number could be around $57 million for 8 players..

I dont think its a coincidence that Stevie Y played his whole career with one team, and he like to see that with his core in Tampa..

Otto volunteer for the Osprey Open. Today he had to hang around with Dylan Strome for a round of golf. Afterwards for the dinner Strome invited Otto to eat at his table. However the staff stopped it because only players and pro am players only

Ya, my first inclination was to be upset, but then I read about some of the numbers behind the broadcast, and if they are to be believed, a case can be made for why they lowballed the radio host. There were reports of only 2,000 listeners per game, and severe lack of sponsors.
still sad though

Disappointed at the return, but not too surprised. They have been trying to trade him forever, so maybe this was as good as it was going to get. Maybe other GM's see the question marks too? Its not like Carolina wanted to trade him to Buffalo, so this means no other team offered a 1st rounder for this "30 goal scorer".

What I find funny is how much he was slagged by most people when he didn't score, (only had 49pts in 82gp last year) or got concussions routinely, and was overpaid at 6mill....and now 1 year away from being a UFA, all anyone can recall about him is that he scored 30 goals.

I think he's a very good player, always have, and I think he should do well in Buffalo if used properly, but it seems like everyone suddenly changed their views about him.
At least on my twitter feed. lol

I'd rather the Pens made a play for him, instead of handcuffing themselves with Jack Johnson.

This isnt a troll post, or something to upset the masses ...however:

If the Penguins win the Stanley Cup, I will stop watching hockey for a full year.

This is a 100% true story.
