  1. It could be a disgruntled wife but looking into is finances won't be hard for the NHL. Since she publicly made the accusations, I hope she has something to back them up. Infidelity isn't a crime but when you have a small child and a pregnant wife, it sure doesn't make him look good.
  2. NHL Opens Investigation Into Evander Kane Gambling Allegations JULY 31, 2021 AT 5:48 PM CDT | BY GAVIN LEE Earlier today, allegations were made on social media by Evander Kane’s wife Anna Kane that suggested the San Jose Sharks forward had placed wagers on NHL games he took part in. The claims have not been proven to be true, but the league has opened an investigation into the matter. A statement from the league reads: The Sharks have also released a statement:
  3. After Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said last week that the team was going to qualify restricted free agents Nick Ritchie and Ondrej Kase, the team surprisingly reversed course on Monday and didn’t tender qualifying offers to restricted free agent wingers. The Bruins signed RFA Nick Wolff to a one-year, two-way contract for an NHL value of $750,000 and tendered qualifying offers to goalie Callum Booth and former first round pick Zach Senyshyn, but both Ritchie and Kase are now essentially free to sign with any other NHL team. The qualifying offer for Kase would have been $2.6 million, which the oft-injured right winger would have presumably accepted for next season as a larger amount than he’s going to get otherwise. The 25-year-old Kase has been limited to nine games with the Boston Bruins over the last two seasons due to concussion issues, and has posted just five assists, and zero goals, in 20 total games during the regular season and playoffs after being dealt from Anaheim. “With [Kase] this year, it’s been a lot of wait and see, and that’s what we’re back to again,” said Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy at the start of the playoffs when Kase was basically ruled out from playing after missing the entire season and then suiting up for the final game of the regular season against the Islanders. It was a $2 million qualifying offer for Ritchie coming off a career-high 15 goals for the 25-year-old power forward in just 56 games last season, but the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Ritchie had arbitration rights and surely would have been looking at a significant raise based on his numbers. Perhaps it was expansion draft subterfuge from Sweeney when he said he was going to tender his RFAs when it really didn’t make sense to ever tender Kase, but either way it seems to be an admission that Boston’s moves at the trade deadline two seasons ago really didn’t pan out.

  6. Lopina is already 20 years old, so taking him too early may be a risk, despite that he’s had time to develop. What will be key is seeing how he plays in his second year at UMass, assuming he doesn’t sign as a free agent if he is undrafted. This season showed his offensive potential, and finding consistency is the key. However, his defensive and faceoff abilities will get him selected. Strengths Faceoffs Defensive play Experience winning Under Construction (Improvements to Make) Offensive consistency
  7. Eric Stephens Ducks trade with Canadiens to get another third-round pick, take defenseman Tyson Hinds of Rimouski (QMJHL). Believe they dealt a third-round pick in 2022.
  8. https://thehockeywriters.com/sasha-pastujov-2021-nhl-draft-prospect-profile/ Pastujov is an exceptionally talented dual-threat winger who can beat opposition defenders in a variety of ways. He’s one of the best puck handlers in the draft class and produced several highlight-reel plays throughout the season. He’s got soft hands and can handle the puck close to his body and use a quick burst of speed to embarrass a defender. When he gets up to full speed, he’s incredibly hard to stop and can weave in-and-out of the opposing steam with ease.
  9. Strengths Skating Defensive play Ability to find open space in offensive zone Under Construction – Improvements to Make Ability to receive passes Adding more weight (would make him even more impactful when he is being physical) NHL Potential Helenius does not have the makings of a high-end offensive contributor at the NHL level. When he rounds out his game, I could see him being a solid bottom-six player who is relied upon defensively and can contribute at the offensive end every so often.
  10. 10 defensemen. They have some trades brewing.
  11. Nice that Fleury said Anaheim helped him a lot.
  12. I think you're correct in that Bob has a deal in place. Maybe they take Henrique and there's a trade in the future?
