    I don't wanna look at Fuller's depressing title all summer.

    Debrincat definitely makes the team, and I think they'll flip Panik's RFA rights.

    Yeah, I don't see that happening, but ya never know.

    Eh, the only real major problem is Seabrook's contract. I think Hossa will retire soon. Really don't think he's going to want to play for $1 million a year as he gets older. You could say Toews isn't earning his $10.5 million cap hit but he's still under 30, just hope he was hurt

    So far really the only time Stan hung onto a core piece too long (assuming they can't get rid of him without packaging him with young talent or draft picks). Probably should've picked Leddy over him.

    Can't compare them. No way they'd have 3 left handed Dmen all making between $4-6MM. They're already short on RHDs with Seabrook here.

    Stan did say changes are going to be made. What was Kitch in charge of? I know one of the coaches takes the PP and the other PK.

    My guess is that Kitch was in charge of making us look like the absolute worst team in the league.

    Has anyone ever scored fewer than 3 goals in 13 periods?

    Kitch was the PK/defensive guy.

    Turns out the record for limp-wristed futility in a 4-game series is during the Western Conference Final in 2003. Anaheim swept Minnesota, shutting them out 3 times in a row. The Wild managed 1 goal in 14 periods.

    So there's that...

    That was the year JS Giguere won the Conn Smythe despite not winning the Cup. Dude was fucking insane in those playoffs.

    I was actually wondering if this was a power move by the front office to send a message to Q. I recalled Q and Kitchen were close.

    He did, he failed.

    I don't see anyone hiring a 60+ former mediocre HC as their HC nowadays.

    He'll be assistant somewhere or nowhere.

    Quite the power move indeed.

    Maybe Q is next.

    He's an idiot.

    He started a rumor on HF that Foley is gonna go to Vegas. Says he heard it from someone at NBC.

    Apparently Dent texted his players that if they have a problem with ice time they should go directly to Bowman.

    Likely to hear lots of #Vegas @GoldenKnights exp draft trade rumblings soon. One such possibility is looking likely, not 100% done yet:

    #Hawks would allow VGK to take D Trevor van Riemsdyk in draft, on consideration that @GoldenKnights also take Marcus Kruger in trade. #TSN

    Possible this is also flipped. VGK takes Kruger in consideration for also getting TvR. Either way, those two names have been linked to Vegas

    Cap set at $75 million.

    A somewhat likely roster (already excluding Kruger, who appears to be on the way out...) is over the cap. Somebody has to go!
