Someone explain please.

"...and Suter was known for lobbying Leipold, a move that would backfire in any company."

Yeah, I didn’t know what the hell that meant either.

‘Going over your boss’ head to their boss when you don’t get your way is generally frowned upon’ is what that statement is conveying.

Thanks for the clarification. I even googled it real quick and couldn’t get a straight answer lol.

Thanks! Ok, duh me, got it. 

Didn't see the prima donna in zach when he was here. Seemed genuinely a good guy.  And never a peep of dousche-ness after he left. 

Gotta admit, enjoying this now...

In the full article, near the end it specifically mentions that Suter would run directly to the Owner to complain about playing time.

Well that’s worded a bit eerily….

Yeah, but it’s good. It won’t be his Final Destination. So a butterfly will not land on a tree branch, causing it to snap and send the attached beehive crashing to the ground, where a grizzly bear will be attracted to the honey and while it tries to cross the street, an 18 wheeler pulling huge logs will not swerve causing all of the logs to fall from the truck, blocking traffic in both directions while Tarasenko gets explosive diarrhea but cannot get to a bathroom or hospital and will not die of a brain hemorrhage caused by the stress of trying to hold it in.

Really wordy way to say the Space Needle is going to snap in half and penetrate his eye, a la Itchy and Scratchy

But this must be from last year? The dates in the article are fvcked. He was no where near the cup this year.

Whenever it was is irrelevant. It’s the fact that he did it when he had the chance.

If this scene isn’t in the next Final Destination movie I’m demanding a refund.

Tampa shared the cup with last year's team too because many never got their day with it to take it where they wanted(due to covid) .

That's a really nice gesture.

That's kind of  fvcked up actually. What if they had an ex player on Montreal from last year? That would  have been very awkward 

That player would have still earned their right to spend a day with the Cup last year, so I don’t see the problem.

Hall staying in boston, 4 x 6m. wow.

How far the mighty have fallen. This officially locks in the fact that he lost at least $20-25m by not signing here at his peak.

IIRC, I was reading that Hall's agent was the one who was mostly driving that negotiation and advised Hall he was worth the $9M+ a season.  If that's true, I would be really pissed at that agent if I were him now.

Good for him. Best move he could make.

Yeah, Hall had one "He's the man" season, but that is not who Hall really is or ever truly was.  He can be a really good complementary player in the right situation.  Boston is 100% the right situation for him.

Sure, he could've made plenty more if he signed here before the 2018-19 season, but I doubt it would've worked out...for one, he would've forever been compared against his career-year MVP season...he would've been a vastly overpaid 60-65 point guy (assuming he wouldn't ever miss significant time, which we can't possibly do).  He would've been a lightning rod for any Devils failures, due to his contract and the fact that he wouldn't be able to come close to 2017-18...he would've received a lot of blame, even if it wasn't fair...guys like him can become convenient whipping boys very quickly.

He's now part of a good team where he's on a very reasonable contract (his AAV his only a little more than Adam Henrique...let THAT sink in) and won't be asked to do too much.  It's about as win-win for him and the Bruins as it gets.
