Minor Ex-Leaf News
« on: August 28, 2017, 12:07:12 PM »

Figured there should be a spot for minor stuff that didn't need its own thread. So, for instance:

The Flyers will be retiring Lindros' 88:

I guess it's nice to see him having patched things up with Philly but man, looking back on that, they treated him badly.

Also Jay McClement in Pittsburgh which...you know, might work.

An interesting article on the recently retired Francois Allaire and whether or not he should be considered for the HHOF:

Daniel "scored at the exact same pace per game as Zach Hyman despite playing with 4th liners all season long" Winnik gets a PTO from the Wild.

And I'm not even sure he'll get a job there, they've got a lot of forward depth it seems.

If he wasn't already under contract with the Caps (derp), I would've liked to get him on a 1 year deal for the 4LW last season.

My dream scenario is signing Winnik to a one year deal every year and trading him for a second round pick.

Hope this works out for Grabo. He missed all of last season with a concussion and struggled with that problem in seasons prior to that as well. He was traded to Vegas prior to the expansion draft along with a 1st and 2nd round pick. He's got 1 year left on his contract.

Obviously best of luck to Boyle and his family on this one.

Sad news indeed, but wishing Boyle all the best in health and strength of spirit in conquering this.  The hockey world lends it's support:

Friedman's preamble on Jason Blake's experience with the exact same diagnosis was touching.

Thanks for posting this, I thought I was the only one touching myself while reading it.
