Lupul'd.

6M for this year and next left on the table. Is this LTIR or retirement?

Johnny Boychuk, who suffered a gruesome-looking eye injury just days before the NHL season was paused in March because of the coronavirus pandemic, told Newsday on Wednesday that he's fully recovered and will be ready to play if the season resumes.

The Islanders defenseman needed 90 stitches to repair a cut above his eyelid, which he suffered when he was hit by the skate of the Montreal Canadiens' Artturi Lehkonen on March 3. He didn't suffer any damage to the eye itself.

"My eye seems to be almost like 100 percent," Boychuk told Newsday. "There's going to be a little bit of discomfort, but not much. Nothing to have me worried about being on the ice again."

Good for the Isles, I wouldn't be surprised to hear about a Barzal signing.

Will the rest of the hockey world whine about this as much as they did when it was Lupul?

Honestly, I'm not sure I can handle a 3rd lockout in 15 years.  If the NHL said "we are shutting down for the 20/21 season due to COVID and feel that safety is paramount for our players and their families" I'm good with it.  But if it is more of this "poor owners" vs. "rich players" crap I might lose interest in it altogether.

The first two lockouts have cut my passion down quite a bit and a 3rd one is really not something I'm sure I'm interested in supporting.

What a brutally one-sided trade that was. Career numbers:

Naslund
1117-395-474-869

Stojanov
107-2-5-7

Stojanov was a winger picked #7 overall.

If some of the things I've been reading about what the next 6-8 weeks might look like in the states comes true then there's going to be a point where all the testing needed to make a sports season work is going to look very, very bad if front line care workers can't get them.

Heh, I'd take it further than testing...where money trumps morals, I can see athletes getting access to a vaccine through the side entrance at the same time as at-risk populations.

I'd 100% bet on the leagues contacting the pharma companies and buying their own supply.

We all should have known that CBA extension went way too smoothly.

Until the PA can get it together to the extent that they can win a labour standoff there's really no downside for owners to keep coming back and asking for more. All of the rumblings about Force Majeure or anything else is just going to be window dressing for the owners thinking, with good reason, that if they withhold a couple of paychecks the players will fold as quick as you like.
