um, if you're using jelly instead of jam, then you deserve to not ever be near an INO ever again, you pedestrian.

When it comes to Randy Carlyle, beggers can't be choosers.

Already rumors that Trotz could end up with the expansion team in Seattle.

I wonder if he's interested in moving on from coaching and into the front office.

So Seattle is wanting to do the same thing as Vegas, make the playoffs in year 1.

If the 31 owners cared more about winning they'd demand an extra protection slot for their rosters in the expansion draft.

$650 million reasons why they care about the extra slot.

I think they hired the Phoenix guy.  

But the current rumors are Islanders.

Simon Despres Wants A Second Chance At NHL

I'm sure someone will give him a minor league tryout.  But i can't imagine a team risking a long term deal on him anymore.  Interestingly, looking at CapFriendly, his cap hit has been zeroed out.   I'm wondering if there was some rule change for buyouts of LTIR or if the Ducks got an exemption or something like that.

I think they also figured out that an expansion team being abjectly terrible for a decade doesn't help the league.

Report: Kessel not opposed to trade, would play for Tocchet's Coyotes

 

He's willing to play for the Coyotes.  Another article I saw was the Coyotes didn't want to take on his salary because it would take them too far past the FLOOR.  That team needs to go bye bye.  

Perry for Kessel.  

Kessel has won two Cups in the last three seasons and gets to play with two of the best players in the world. There's the realistic potential for more Cups in the next five years. WHY ON EARTH would you want to leave that to play for one of the worst teams in league history?!?

Everything I'm reading is he really really really doesn't like the coach.  He does like the Arizona coach though.  Hopefully he will say he likes Carlyle also.

He's going to coach a Tavares-less Islanders. What a terrible move for Trotz.

Maybe signing him to coach is enough to convince Tavares to stay.

:)Which would be good for both the Kings & Ducks cause that would mean no Tavares on the Sharks.

San Jose continues to shed payroll.  The just bought Out Paul Martin.  According to Capfriendly, that cuts another $2.8 million.  That means they will be $18 million under the cap.  Sure does sound like they are going hard for Tavares.

LOL In the 4th round Detroit selects Ryan O'Reilly, yes another Ryan O'Reilly. Just think if he makes it to the NHL & their on the same team, how the heck are the play by play guys going to call a goal scored by one of the Ryan O'Reilly's ? Ryan O'Reilly 2.0 for the younger one ?

There was a rumor for a while that the Golden Knights owner was going to buy the Coyotes and move them to Las Vegas. I now understand why he wasn't interested, seeing how that franchise has been run and some of the decisions that they have made.

Avalanche swapped second roinders and bought Orpik's salary for this season in order to acquire Grubauer. They've already signed him to an extension thus putting Varly and his delicate groins on notice
