In Topic: Should Daneyko continue as color commentator next year?

It's his rambling that always bothered me, even when he was working with Deb and HNL. He goes off on so many tangents that take FOREVER to conclude (and the tangent is usually something so obvious too). Dano is learning tho and seemingly getting better. Remember, Chico was god awful when he first started.

What was the official diagnoses with Salvador anyway? Did it ever come out what the problem was? (Besides having a bad case of suckery)

Hammond is now 14-0-1, and Ottawa, inexplicably, has taken the last playoff spot from Boston.

Additionally, Dubnyk has now added 23 wins to his record since joining the Wild on January 15th.

The Ottawa story is absolutely amazing

Why would anyone want an old Kovalchuk who hasn't played hockey in a whole year?

...plus we need to create ice time space for mcdavid/eichel!

The difference is that when he retired from the NHL he immediately moved from one salaried position to another.  He can't be paid for playing hockey next year in order to be eligible for reinstatement without a 30 team approval.  Given that Russian money is still tax-free and he's still being paid lots of it, I'm sure he's still making more money in Russia than he would be here.  Interestingly, all the leverage goes to the KHL after his next contract because he can't play in the NHL without sitting a year out or someone managing 30 teams to vote yes, so I imagine that's why the rumblings of him coming back to this league.


Why cant he play in the KHL and then come to the NHL? is there a rule that says to be reinstated that you have to have sit out a year of hockey?
