Apparently Chicago, TB, and Nashville were on Kimmo's list of teams he wanted to go to.
Hextall said he and Bowman agreed to the deal before the Leafs game last night.
Hextall says he's been talking with the Hawks for weeks. Says he would've made the trade even if the Flyers were tied with BOS for the final playoff spot.
He also said he wouldn't have traded...
This is a pretty damn good trade, you guys. Really don't see how there could be any qualms with it.
Best of luck to Kimmo. If anyone deserves a Cup, it's him. Definition of a warrior.
BREAKING: conditions of the 2016 pick are as follows:
- If Hawks win 2 rounds and Kimmo plays 50% of games, pick becomes a 3rd in 2016
- If Hawks win 3 rounds and Kimmo plays 50% of games, pick...
The conditional pick is a 4th, don't know what the condition is.
But come on, Cubs. A 2nd rounder and a conditional 4th for a soon to be 40 year old D man who hasn't played a single game this...
WOW. That's a hell of a deal to get a 2015 2nd alone, plus a conditional 2016 pick.
Wonder what the conditional pick is, but damn. Nice job, Hexy.
Well, I think the league knows who's coaching this team, so in that sense, I'm not sure him not playing really holds much merit. I mean for crying out loud MDZ has been a healthy scratch 10 games...
I'm not so sure he would, honestly. He's played well when he's played, and he's been able to stay injury free. I think a playoff team wouldn't mind picking him up instead of overpaying for a rental.
There are 4 possibilites:
1) Kimmo isn't really ready or they're trying to move him tonight
2) A D man has come down with an injury and they aren't sure if he can play tomorrow so they're holding...
Just to be clear, I would expect them just to say Kimmo isn't playing tomorrow, but stranger things have happened.
Great point, castan, thank you for posting that.
Do you have any thoughts on this?
No he changed them for good late in the 2nd I believe. Couts was with Simmonds and Read, Read and Rinaldo, Read and Umberger. He had VandeVelde up top with G and Jake at one point. He had G out with...
Colaiacovo was not put on waivers today.
Interesting considering Kimmo is expected to return tomorrow.
Something may be in the works here. Stay tuned people.
Great tweet from my man Bob Roberts on this whole line change **** today. These are the possession numbers and PDO (on ice sv% plus shooting %) of each player in the top 6 the past 4 games:
I agree. I never said that process was the only thing that mattered. Obviously the results need to be there. But my point has always been, if the process is consistently there, the results will...
Leafs just remembered they were supposed to lose.
Now Berube will keep all the lines mixed up. You know, because both their goals came on the PP. So clearly changing the lines has made a...
Of course Berube switches up the lines in a game they are dominating at 5v5.
There is not a more results-based coach IN ALL OF SPORTS.
They are clicking. They are dominating shifts. Puck is in the offensive zone for nearly entire shifts. They just arent getting the goal.
Couts was visibly pissed. I have never seen him that upset...
Mason in. I am livid.
Well they pretty much owned 5v5 and Couts line was dominant....but theyre down 1.
Someone tweeted today that it would get worked out that TOR would get McDavid the Canadian and BUF would get Eichel the American.
And you know what, I can 100% see it being rigged that way.
Clarkson just got traded for Horton.
In other news, pigs are flying outside my window right now.
Todd Herremans expected to be released today.
