Ward was previously the intern head coach after taking over midseason.

This news itself isn't exactly noteworthy but I think we're at the point now where it's safe to say Brad Treliving will be staying on as Calgary's GM, and as I wrote about a few weeks ago... that seems unwise.
Agree with you. Calgary doesn't look good moving forward. They need to make some big moves.

The lesson being, I think, that you should probably be patient with really talented young players.

Except for Marner. The leafs should trade Marner. Did you see him in the playoffs that one year in August during a pandemic. He just wasn't himself man.

Sincerely, he deserves it. Make it so.

Yeah I was really wondering what his next contract would look like. He's just a year away from UFA now and nobody has really seemed to talk about that (granted other things are going on right now).

Make the Washington Capitals a pre-retirement destination where everyone (who can) gets performance bonuses based on how many goals Ovechkin scores (or primary assists on Ovechkin goals if it has to be individualized).

Anyone else see a pretty silly Winnipeg/Pittsburgh trade centered around Laine/Letang being a possibility?

Winnipeg's not that crazy.

Coyotes have been nothing but a shit show. I hope they want to dump salaries and the Leafs go after Kuemper. One for one for Freddie who would cost them 1 mill next year in actual dollars, so they'd save 2.5 this season and 5.5 in 21/22.

Good for Draisaitl, the Hart and the Ted Lindsay.

Josi and Hallebuyck first time winners as well, right?

So... uh... That Hornqvist deal might not even go through!

The former Marlie Sam Gagner re-ups with Detroit for a year.
