    Gorton is going to be their director of hockey operations and they will likely hire someone bilingual to be their GM under him. I would think our director of hockey operations Mathieu Darche would be a strong favorite for their GM job.

    No surprise there, eh? Question is, do they feel compelled to only hire a Franc?

    Just what the fishtix need: SEVEN players test for COVID. You can't tell me these are all 'breakthroughs'.

    If you got vaccinated early, your immunity does wane over time a little bit. Not from getting seriously ill, that protection stays very high… but it becomes more possible to get a mild case.

    Boosters restore that protection against being infected at all. It’s really not that hard to get one but since there are technically restrictions on who is eligible, the NHL and the PA can’t exactly go out and push them to the players.

    Fake vaccine cards maybe? Ask Antonio Brown.

    With what the refs let them get away with, they’ll probably be fine.

    Not to mention it was the end of a 13 game road trip for them.

    They should have been drilled. Panthers had two days off to chill at home while the Isles were on a back to back.

    Fishstix get drilled by the kitties—6-1. Look forward to seeing the video of pleasantries exchanged tomorrow. Palmieri, Martin and Mayfield lead the parade with multiple fight and 10 min misconducts..Gudas with a 5. The fish are stinking up the joint.

    Braydon Coburn decides to hang up his skates for the last time

    The defenceman suited up with five NHL teams in 16 years and won a Stanley Cup with the 2019-20 Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Eichel to Vegas for Tuch, Krebs (high-upside former 1st rounder just starting his NHL career), 1st and 3rd

    Wonder why Calgary couldn’t get it done

    The NHL said there were only I think four unvaxxed players at the start of the season, and we know Tyler Bertuzzi is one of them. Very unlikely Sid is another, just on odds.

    Apparently Calgary has pitched a massive package to Buffalo for Eichel centered around Tkachuk. Seems like a mistake to shake up a team on a hot start, and the rumored package is super steep, but I have no love for that team so hope they pull it off.
