Fehr cleared waivers, for those of you holding your breath.

He's cleared, but hasn't been assigned to the Marlies as far as I can tell from the transaction logs.

The news won't all burst forth at once. You have to let it release in slow drips so that we have several things to talk about. Fehr clearing waivers and being assigned to the Marlies in one post? Heads would explode. Servers would crash. Enjoy the anticipation.

Actually, I'm told that Fehr's fate has been decided, but this information is only available through The Athletic. 

It's an extension of their business model...they are now the only PR for the Maple Leafs, and pay the Leafs on a year-by-year renewable contract for the exclusive info.

Similarly, I'll be introducing a subscription model for all of my posts. For the easily affordable rate of 7.99 per month you'll have access to each and everyone of my overwritten 800+ word posts. For our exclusive premium plan at 9.99 my posts will be 250 tightly edited words but with the one or two good lines intact for your pleasure.

Of course, you probably won't subscribe. That's because I've always thought that you are....

Want to find out what I think of Frank E or even you? The Nikletic subscriptions start at 7.99 per month or a one time yearly payment of 7.99*.

Don't do it guys, there's no free-trial, and trying to cancel Nikletic is worse than attempting to cancel your GoodLife membership...there's even more guilting.

So you lied in that other post?  I don't know.  This changes things, but I am still intrigued.

Full disclosure, a fair number of posts at the Nikletic are me telling other posters not to post the material here. Downside being it's repetitive content. Upside being I think it's created a temporal paradox.

JVR missed practice today and Marner was in his spot.

I assume JVR has a lower-body injury after twisting his leg against the LAK.

Shipachyov, Miller and a pick for one of our upcoming UFA's and a medium prospect?

This gets Vegas out of their Shipachyov problem and you get some gravy because he has another year after this.

Let them keep Miller if they eat half of the cap hit.

I was thinking along those lines but for Theodore instead of Miller and for a couple of our wing prospects and maybe a draft pick.

Proper dietary regiment, how to minimize injuries & maximize player health, etc., etc., are an integral part of keeping the team in top shape and the maintenance of it's players' wel-being:

"Everyone seems to think its luck when you stay healthy and unlucky when you get hurt, said Andersen. But I think its just as much the things you do. . . . Youve got to put yourself in a position to be a healthy player.

The breadth of the teams efforts to put each Leaf in such a position is too expansive to catalogue here. It includes everything from a GPS tracking system worn in practice that can help the team detect the warning signs of overuse injuries, to the gamut of therapeutic training-room accessories. There are hot tubs and cold tubs and cryotherapy chambers, physiotherapists and chiropractors and doctors. There are nutritionist-approved meals at the ready. The list goes on and on.

Some players leave it to the team to dictate how to navigate a typical day as a pro. Leafs forward Matt Martin said the teams training-room staff is proactive in its approach seeking out trouble spots before they turn into injuries. Tight hip muscles, for instance, are an occupational hazard among hockey players that can lead to a chain of unwanted side effects.

If you have a tight hip, your groin starts working harder to protect that. And thats generally when you get a groin pull, Martin said. Its about making sure your bodys moving the right way.
