just logically, unless she discovered proof of it herself, it's a bit hard to react too strongly just yet. I'm pretty sure if you were match fixing, you wouldn't be telling anyone you don't need to tell

Also we sucked so hard you can't tell which games we threw. If anyone should be investigated for betting it should be Jim Benning. Clearly has bets against Vancouver every year.

And probably he has a history with problems with finance seeing as he filled for bankruptcy and racked up serious gambling debts, so probably par for the course* for EK.

*maybe one other reason he is distracted whilst on the rink, he's thinking about golf.


Braedesman what do you think of this?
Also: Sorry for misspelling your name Bradesmaen

Monthly subscriptions to NHL.tv have now started to bounce, due to the new broadcast deal I guess.

Has there been any word on a legitimate replacement for international viewers....?

NHL will need a bigger boat.
I don't know how true this is, but it was mentioned the insta account it was posted on was quite new. So if that's all the evidence that is out there it's pretty slim.

If it's all true then Kane is a garbage human, and the NHL are ostriches. But I'm withholding judgement.

I'm more keen to hear about the Chicago cover up.

it's just crazy that teams still do these buyout proof deals
Ken Holland, “Hold my beer, watch what I do with Darnell Nurse.”
******* bizarre.

In fact I kinda get the Werenski thing, where the team was not wanting to lose another top level player, and they basically bought his prime years. If there's going to be a drop-off it'll likely happen after this contract.

Nurse is two years older... and really can't be bought out from year 5 onwards. The SB does make it a little more attractive to cap floor trade partners; most of the salary for a year gets paid out day one.

Most likely won’t be Kenny’s problem when the time comes.

Morning gents - how much was NHL gamepass (or whatever they are calling it these days) in Australia for last season?

Man Carolina had a bad offseason.
At the very least a weird one. You've got to assume there's an extension for KK in the bag already and the 6.1 deal is just to pry him away.

But you've got 6mil to spend on prank but won't pay Hamilton? And 6.5 mil to spend on two injury prone goalies, but can't spend 3mil on Nedeljkovic? I don't know who their third guy is but there's a decent chance he sees ice for more than a couple games.

As a Habs fan, I'm a bit torn in seeing KK leave. That said though, paying that sort of coin on a guy who was a healthy scratch in the SC final just couldn't be justified.

As a neutral, I think the Habs made the right play here, but I can guarantee Bergevin the control freak wasn't happy about it.

Dvorak's a better solution for the present, given the loss of Danault. KK's a guy that might be more useful down the track that it didn't appear the coaching staff were keen on developing in the NHL.

Habs fan also, and a huge KK fan. I thought he had a lot of room for improvement but he was a character and I liked watching him. But for the team I'm ok with them not matching, he wasn't worth that contract
