  1. I think a 22 man roster with a taxi squad that includes Weal and Frolik is only ~$41 000 over the cap. If they juggle some waiver exempt guys onto the taxi squad like Romanov and Evans (or even Suzuki and Kotkaniemi) they'll accrue that $41 000 in cap space required in a week or two maybe?


    So I don't think Perry will be exposed to waivers. 

  2. Chara leaves the Bruins and heads to Washington on a 1 year deal.


    The really weird thing is apparently Montreal tried to sign him, and one of the only reasons he didn't is because of travel complications since he's leaving his family in Boston this season.


    Now I think Zdeno is washed AF nowadays, but if I shut off my brain and picture a Chara - Romanov pairing... is this how kinks are discovered?

    I'm a jersey collector so I have a lot

    Blue C (2009) - Plekanec

    Barbershop - Markov (with A)
    Vintage CCM with 1993 Stanley cup playoffs patch - Roy

    Classic Blue Blanc et Rouge (4) - Weber (with C), Subban, Price, Domi
    Centennial Classic (Ottawa Outdoor game) - Drouin
    White Home - #4 with a Captain's C, but no name for Mr. Beliveau who played the majority of his career with No Name on his jersey.... (only his last season had them)
    Blue stripe White jersey (40s version) - #9 No name.  I messed this one up though, I got a captain's C on the front, I shouldn't have as he didn't get the C til after the jersey was discontinued. 
    CA jersey 1916 - Cammalleri (with A)
    Christmas Tree Red and Green - Gionta (with A, by the time he got the C, they stopped using it)
    Winter Classic (Boston Game) - Pacioretty (with C)

    75th anniversary NHL (1991-92) - Patrick Roy (this one was grade 6, so no longer fits lol)

    I'm definitely getting a reverse retro... Probably Suzuki.


    I've also got some Team Canada Jerseys with Subban (2009 World Junior 3rd), Weber (2014 Olympics Black), Price (2014 Olympics Red), Doughty (2010 Olympics), Mario Lemieux (2002 Olympics Black), Subban (2014 Olympics white), 


    Can we all chip in and buy Commandant a Weise jersey?

    Yes, especially with the logo that was proposed a few years ago



    I'd argue that the name and logo do more for getting people interested in the Sauk leader Black Hawk then if Chicago went with something else, but apparently I'd be arguing against descendants of the tribe, so...


    Thing is, it was originally named after a military squad the original owner was in or something? I don't even know if switching to a military style logo would be an improvement.


    Without any context it's still the best looking jersey in the league imo.

    Don't think the players will want to do Hubs away from family.  Not for a full season. 


    They are talking about a Canadian division, with limited travel... meaning that when the Habs go out west, they would play in Calgary 2x, Edmonton 2x, Vancouver 2x, Winnipeg 2x, and then come back east..... when those teams come to Montreal, they would also play twice in Montreal.  This would reduce the number of road trips. 

    Could be up to 3 games in a row against the same team, I saw.


    Jonathan Toews has been preaching this idea for a couple years now. He thinks the NHL should adopt a more MLB style schedule to cut down on team travel/carbon emissions.

    Can someone go to the NHL HQ and give it a "kick" to get it going again.

    It seems it has stalled and is stuck here:



    As arbitration winds up we might see a few more trades and UFA signings, but there isn't a whole lot of rush for teams here. The season doesn't even have a start date yet.

    Stu Cowen’s Montreal Gazette article is very disappointing. Doesn’t bother me at all that he doesn’t like Trump - many people I respect don’t. 

    but to give up your childhood hero because they are in support of Trump? Kinda shallow if you ask me. 

    Trump to me is like Gallagher - hate him on the other team, love him on yours. (Or any mouthy star on the opposing team). 

    Trump’s noise aside, he does what he says he will do. If you don’t like his policies, vote against him, if you like his policies, vote for him. 

    His economic policy will long outlive his tweets. 

    Nah, Trump is like Matt Cooke.

  8. Pretty sure Minnesota is rebuilding/retooling. Guerin's plan this summer has been to upend the "country club" culture in the locker room, but I'm pretty sure he just wants the team to try really hard while they lose a lot. Cam Talbot as the #1 goalie? Top centreman Nick Bonino? Almost traded Parise for Ladd...


    They aren't burning everything to the ground, but I'm definitely not seeing a playoff push there.
