Nearly half of the NHL’s general managers – the gatekeepers of the league who collectively influence the policy that governs Parros’ department – were canvassed for this story and not one expressed concern or doubt about Parros’ competence.

This made me think... isn't it kind of weird that the league has the GMs basically run the league like this? I mean most of them are barely competent at their actual jobs of running NHL teams... what gives them the qualifications to decide how an entire league should be operated?

The Sabres are salivating at the thought of picking him in 2023.

Just like it's weird that Bettman keeps trying to get Peter Chiarelli back in the GM saddle with every opening?

I'm pretty sure he tied McDavid's U18 scoring record as a U15 with 16 points in the tournament.

In a few years, there's a decent chance we go from McDavid being obviously the best player on the planet to a debate as to whether or not he's the best Connor on the planet.

On the one hand, yes. On the other, I hate to tell you what goes on in most businesses today.

Bedard had 14 pts and tied McD. Matvei Michkov who is 7 months older then Bedard lead the tourney with 16 pts. Both look pretty amazing. It will be interesting to see how they both progress.

Is it ethically consistent to hate everything about Tom Wilson but also to want to see what he does to Boston in the first round?
