The Blue Jackets are in a very tough spot right now cause Bob is 100% not re-signing with them and Panarin won't sign until the end of the season. They want to make the playoffs but they have to trade those 2 guys and get assets for them. The chance of them winning this year is not good enough for them to see that much assets in their prime walking away. Unlike the Islanders where Tavares apparently told them not to trade him ? Colombus knows Bob is not re-signing and Panarin they have to give him an ultimatum or trade him.

They are definitely in a tough spot, but at least their players have given the team a heads up...unlike some other players that said they wanted to stay and ended up being lost in FA for nothing....Tavares included in that company.

Nice (but long) article on Pat Maroon & why he chose StL:  http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/24931004/nhl-patrick-maroon-decision-sign-st-louis-blues-betting-familial-ties SNIPPET:  Maroon e

Mojo is still in the hospital this morning. If the Bruins want to be pissed about their damaged goods, they can look no further than the dirty piece of rat sh!t wearing number 63 for them

Doc rules. Really miss him.

I think too many women these days use "mansplaining" way too much these days when such a thing didn't really happen.

However, this is one of those rare times where I think it legit was happening and 100% cringe-worthy.

More awkward Pierre being awkward Pierre than "mansplaining". It's like he has never spoken to a woman before. 100% cringe is accurate.

It's worse that he explained which bench which team is going to be on considering she's a 2x Olympic gold winner in hockey, I think she knows her left from her right lol

Up front, I'll admit I didn't see the skills competition, but I remember a backlash last weekend about how he treated her following her fastest skater round.

I wish he'd actually suffer something resembling discipline for being an obnoxious douche, even before this. But also, him telling her she can't be a fan, meanwhile he absolutely gushes over certain players, is ironic at best.

I think this is right. It was like he had no idea what to say. Bad job by him but honestly, I wouldn’t have thought that was so offensive. 

She said she thought nothing if it until people brought it to her attention; I don’t think I would have either had it not been presented in that context. I just would’ve thought he was awful at his job.

Lmfao God bless Calgary, this is awesome. fvck Carolina and their stupid little post-game circle jerks.  

 

Wow, I didn't know Lindholm was a Hurricane too.  I think the celebration is insanely stupid, but regardless, if someone did that to us and mocked the Devils celebration, I'd want to fvcking murder them.  Wouldn't surprise me if Lindholm gets his ass beat next time they play.

Various sources are reporting that Auston Matthews has signed an extension in Toronto.  5-year deal with about $11.6AVV.  Over 90% of deal is signing bonuses and will be an UFA afterwards.

The bolded is absolutely ridiculous.  Hello lockout, here we come!

Also, great deal for the Matthews, the player.  High hit, short term.  UFA as a 26 year old.

Some GM out there is going to give him 15M x 7 at that point.  Don't see how the Leafs can keep him at that point with any hope of keeping the rest of their roster together.

If Matthews gets $11.6m, is it overvaluing Taylor Hall to say he gets $10m? Maybe it is.

I'd be more annoyed that the Devils were doing stupid celebrations to begin with lol

The guy's truly a piece of sh!t.  And a sad one at that.

To be fair, it doesn't say he requested a trade. It is prob in the King's best interest to dump him while they can and he wants a shot at the playoffs before his time runs out. I don't see anything about this situation that would make him anymore of a piece of sh!t than he was before.
