???


So Lou just signed someone worse than Josh Leivo for 4 years.

At least he looks like Rick Nash in that photo?

And really, did Tavares have any other choice then to leave NYI? I don't think so...

If you can't beat them in the alleys then you won't beat them on the ice. It seems like the Islanders are the place where all used up old Leafs go to play out there days in the paddock. Fitting as the new arena will be at the Belmont Grounds.

I'm a bit disappointed Mark Hunter wasn't signed immediately July 15 12:01 am.

What is becoming more common is teams allowing coaches to also have a private consultancy.

I wonder if Briere will continue to work with some of the Marlies guys on a private coaching basis.

Yeah, I was wondering about that with Barb Underhill when I heard that she's a for-hire consultant as well.

I would guess that since they work on contract anyways, and since job security in the pro-hockey business is pretty terrible at best, that having the ability to grow your own business, and just invoice the team for services provided probably works well for both parties.

Briere is still on Leafs staff (he also has his own consultancy). If Sparks still needed to talk to Piero Greco once in awhile, I'm sure that'd be allowed if it was on his own time and dime.

Most of our skills coaches have consultancies on the side where they can work with individuals. Barb Underhill works on a team basis with the Leafs and Lightning. Darryl Belfry stipulated that has part of his agreement with the Leafs, so he still does his regular courses and one-on-ones.
