wow if Chiarelli gets another job in hockey other than sharpening skates it goes to show you what an old boys club hockey executives are.

Disagree completely. His hockey knowledge is so limited, he should not be allowed to sharpen skates.

I would be all for it if it means the Blues send us Alex Pietrangelo for Pavel Zacha.  <--- not meant as a shot at Zacha as I really liked Larsson too.

What the hell's the backstory to that?  Isn't Doughty like 30 or something by now, and Tkachuk is what, 22? 24?  What beef could they possibly have with Tkachuk being in the league a year or two?  Feel like Doughty would have had more in common and played against Keith more than he did Matthew, but maybe that's just me being old.

I was like WTF is he smoking... until I looked up that Tkachuk retired in 2010. Seems like so much longer ago lol. Matthew is, generally, considered a dirty a&#036;&#036;hole by a lot of people so this doesn't really surprise me.

The Tkachuk brothers also have very punchable faces.

MoJo back in for the Bruins tonight...curious to see what kind of interest there will be in him this offseason.  Assuming he plays in all six of the Bruins' remaining games, that's just 87 regular season GP over the past two seasons combined.  And obviously his production has been affected...17 G and 25 A in 81 GP since the start of 2017-18.  He may have to take a one-year "Show me" kind of deal somewhere.

Doughty is bitchy cause Matt hit him high and didn’t get suspended either earlier this year or last season

Oh Jesus.  Yeah that explains it.  Looks like whoever #70 is on the Kings got some pretty good revenge though.

@DevsMan84 This is for you.  I know you don't like me, but from now on you can never say anything bad about me as long as we both continue to post here :D  You're welcome...

 

...A buddy of mine works for the Blue Jackets selling corporate tickets and he said this morning their GM came in and told everyone that Kinkaid was starting in net tomorrow against the Bruins.  They believed him.

Yeah, even my buddy said it was super fvcked up, and hoped Keith didn't walk through the office.  I gotta admit, that's pretty damn harsh.

Damn, this is now the rock bottom of rock bottom for KK.  I feel for the guy...hasn't played in how friggin' long, and now in-house jokes are coming at his expense.  I'll admit it, if I'm him, that's a pretty tough one to laugh off...it's pretty disrespectful.  Not like the guy's been openly bitching about not getting to play from what I've seen, and it's probably been really hard for him to be getting starter-type minutes, then getting completely mothballed...not saying his play did him any favors, but geez, your own organization kicking you hard while you're down...yeah, pretty damn harsh indeed.

Interesting move by Adam Fox who appears to be saying that he’ll forego his senior year if he gets traded to a team he wants to play for before the season ends.

I assume this is kosher except for the fact that whatever compensation gets exchanged can’t participate in the playoffs, correct?  If so, it’s actually a fairly solid move on Fox’s part where he gets what he wants and the Canes will get meaningful compensation in return.

Wonder if something like our second rounder and Quenneville gets it done, if Castron et al think he’s all that good.  You’d think they’ve seen a lot of him over the past two years.
