I hope he ends up being fired over a salacious scandal and the induction is revisited.

Oh so the excitement of pretending we are going to get Tavares only will last one more day? Dammit.

If I were Tavares I'd just sign one-year max deals for the rest of my career. Or at least for my prime years. Keith Tkachuk did that and made more money over his career than Gretzky.

Smart money is on Tavares staying put in NY. I still gotta commend Nill for trying tho. A lot of teams that you'd think *should* be pursuing Tavares aren't even putting through the effort. Those GMs should be fired asap.

I answered "anywhere but the windward rail or an electric fence" but have not heard back from KO.

This must be a legacy question going back to the bowels.....err kidneys/bladder of the early days here.

I once asked a jaybot where he liked to pee after admitting my preference at the time was my backyard. He didn't reply.

So the Pens basically dumped Sheary and Hunwick on Buffalo to clear cap space to sign Jack Johnson to a 5-year deal ...

Ok then.

Golden Knights allege StubHub failed to give them a cut of playoff ticket sales and are suing them for $1.5M.

Obviously they should trade him for Ritchie / Shore / Honka / a 1st / a 3rd.

At this point, if the Ottawa Senators were a horse, you’d shoot it out of mercy.

This is an interesting strategy, but some of this is a kind of natural outcome from winning Cups where you end up trying to keep together the guys who got you there.

JVR is going back to the Flyers, so if he was the plan B, that's not good.

If Statsny was your plan B, he's going to Vegas

Don’t really need a Plan B since last season was already an abortion.
