  2. Any names... Gallant (imo) is the obvious choice.
  3. Mike Babcock joins Vermont coaching staff as volunteer advisor By Sean Leahy Jul 29, 2020, 4:38 PM EDT Mike Babcock has a new job and he’s heading to the college hockey world. The University of Vermont men’s team announced that Babcock will join as a volunteer advisor to head coach Todd Woodcroft. “Mike and I have been connected for over 15 years and our network goes back even further to our McGill University experience,” Woodcroft said. “He is a premier coach across any athletic platform and as a coaching staff we are very fortunate to be able to draw from his experiences. Mike’s knowledge, his network and above all else, the modern lens he uses to look at the game of hockey will help accelerate the progression of our entire program.” Woodcroft was Canada’s video coach at the 2004 World Championship where Babcock was head coach. Babcock, who has coached 1,301 NHL games with three teams, was last behind a bench with the Maple Leafs before being fired in November. His trophy case includes a Stanley Cup and two Olympic gold medals, among other titles. Weeks after his dismissal, allegations of mental abuse were levied against Babcock regarding an incident with Mitch Marner when he was a rookie. Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan said the actions were not “appropriate or acceptable.” The head coach would respond telling Sportsnet, “I was trying to focus on work ethic with Mitch — focusing on role models — ended up not being a good idea. I apologized at (the) time.”
  4. Chayka quits as Coyotes general manager, replaced by Sullivan Was youngest at position in NHL history when hired at age 26 NHL.com @NHLdotcom July 26, 2020 John Chayka quit as general manager and president of hockey operations of the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday and was replaced by assistant Steve Sullivan. "The club is disappointed in his actions and his timing as the Coyotes prepare to enter the NHL's hub city of Edmonton, where the team will begin postseason play for the first time since 2012," the Coyotes said in a statement. "Chayka has chosen to quit on a strong and competitive team, a dedicated staff and the Arizona Coyotes fans, the greatest fans in the NHL. "The club is moving forward and has named Steve Sullivan as interim general manager. He has the full support of the entire organization including team ownership, executive leadership, players, and coaches. The club will have no further comment on the matter, as the club remains focused on the opportunity to pursue a Stanley Cup." Chayka became the youngest general manager in NHL history when he was hired at 26 on May 5, 2016. He was also named president of hockey operations July 12, 2017, and signed a long-term contract with the Coyotes on Nov. 11, 2019. Among the moves the Coyotes made since Chayka was named GM were trading for forwards Taylor Hall, Phil Kessel, Nick Schmaltz, Derek Stepan, Carl Soderberg, Lawson Crouse and Vinnie Hinostroza, defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson, Jason Demers and Jordan Oesterle, and goalies Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper. They also signed free agent defenseman Alex Goligoski and forward Michael Grabner, and drafted forwards Clayton Keller (No. 7, 2016) and Barrett Hayton (No. 5, 2018) and defenseman Jakob Chychrun (No. 16, 2016). However, the Coyotes never reached the Stanley Cup Playoffs during Chayka's tenure. Their last postseason appearance was the 2012 Western Conference Final, a five-game loss to the Los Angeles Kings. This season, Arizona was 33-29-8 (.529 points percentage) and will enter the Stanley Cup Qualifiers as the No. 11 seed in the Western Conference. It will play the Nashville Predators (35-26-8, .565), the No. 6 seed, in a best-of-5 series that will begin in Edmonton, the Western hub city, Aug. 2. The winner advances to the playoffs, and the loser will have a chance at the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NHL Draft in the Second Phase of the NHL Draft Lottery, scheduled to be held Aug. 10. The Coyotes will play an exhibition game against the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday (10 p.m. ET; NHLN, FS-A PLUS, NHL.TV). "I've got to worry about the team," Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said July 25. "I'm not an outside noises guy, I don't like outside noises. I cocoon the team here, our players. We had a great practice today and then we'll jump on the plane and we'll see what happens from there. We're just worried about Nashville and how we're going to go to Edmonton and deal with what's there." Sullivan, 46, was GM of Arizona's American Hockey League affiliate in Tucson for the past three seasons. He scored 747 points (290 goals, 457 assists) in 1,011 NHL games, and 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) in 50 playoff games. One of Sullivan's top priorities will be signing Hall, who can become an unrestricted free agent after the season, to a long-term contract. Hall scored 27 points (10 goals, 17 assists) in 35 games for Arizona after he was traded by the New Jersey Devils on Dec. 16.
  5. I love the logo, but meh, the name will take some getting used to....krak heads are coming.
  6. If there are hockey gods, the wings will win the lottery, with a few potential studs already in the wings system, landing A L would be huge.
  7. I actually liked the bruins 3rd jersey, but I wished the bear could have looked a little more "bruin" like, instead of a pooh bear pu**y.
  8. Jack's contract....does he play it out then go UFA ?
  9. Kings sign Kaliyev and Spence to entry-level contracts Witten by Ben Shelley The Los Angeles Kings have signed prospects Arthur Kaliyev and Jordan Spence to entry-level contracts. Kaliyev is a winger who was selected 33rd overall by the Kings in last year's NHL draft, after many projected him to be a first-round pick. He had a monster year with the OHL's Hamilton Bulldogs this season, scoring 44 goals and 98 points in 57 games and finishing fifth in the league in points. Spence is a right-handed defenseman who was selected by Los Angeles in the fourth round of last year's draft. He plays with the Moncton Wildcats of the QMJHL and this season, he scored nine goals and 52 points in 60 games, finishing second in the league in points per game average amongst defensemen. Each player has another year of junior eligibility left.
  10. By the way....i hope you are all doing well and are dealing with this as sanely as possible.
  11. Just can not see any sane logic into trying to restart the season and go a (imo) needless and possible dangerous scenario just for the sake of crowning a Covid Cup Champion. The saftey risk of the players and making a mockery of the greatest trophy in sports history just to (imo) gain back lost revenue is something i am simply 100% against.... Not sure how i would feel about the draft at this time, but that will have a way of working itself out...perhaps a draft based on current standings and a ping pong ball draft for those who were out of playoff contention...
  12. The homer in me says boston... The feeling in me is also boston, only because they are having an insane season as far as win/loss, and stats, and seem to be driven by the loss in game # 7 last year... Would not have mattered who came out of the west.... That said, it irks me to have such a solid season lost, even if it were to be started again, and or jumped right into playoff action, the mojo could be gone...
  13. Games Played on 3/10/20 Jamie Benn vs Brendan Smith Winner ?
  14. Rask...end of story, got his 50th SO on his 33rd birthday. The flyers peppered him in the first 2 periods, if not for tuukka, this would have been a flyer blow out.. I, of course, am happy with the result.
  15. Bruins snap Flyers' 9-game win streak behind Rask shutout Game # 69 2 0 By Associated Press Updated: 15 hours ago PHILADELPHIA -- Scott Laughton sped down the boards, attacked the zone and had his pass set on Kevin Hayes to find an open look at Boston's net. Bruins center Charlie Coyle acted more like a Red Sox player headed toward a triple, doing a head-first dive between the circles, his left arm outstretched with a stick that just broke up the pass and kept a game between two of the top teams in the East scoreless. Coyle had the save of the game. Tuukka Rask took care of the rest, stopping all 36 shots he faced to help the Bruins beat Philadelphia 2-0 on Tuesday night to snap the Flyers' nine-game winning streak. "Hayes was kind of cocked and ready there," Coyle said. "I think that's all I had, so I just went for it and the play went in my favor." So much has gone in the Bruins' favor this season, and they cooled the hottest team in the NHL. Matt Grzelcyk and Patrice Bergeron scored and the Bruins (44-14-12) became the first team with 100 points this season. Rask picked up his 50th career shutout on his 33rd birthday and became the sixth active goalie with at least 50 shutouts. He has five this season. "I've been around for many years. I guess if you play enough games, those milestones happen," Rask said. Rask stymied a Flyers' offense that had scored at least three goals in each of their nine wins during the streak. They scored five goals four times since the streak started Feb. 18 against Columbus. The Wells Fargo Center was about packed, even with concern over the coronavirus outbreak, for the most anticipated Flyers game of the season. If fans were fearful, they sure didn't show it before the game. They packed the concourse bars, lined up for $13 turkey hoagies, and accepted their giveaway Flyers caps (from rubber gloved arena workers, of course) without the gloom and doom atmosphere over the virus that has spoiled sports around the globe. The Flyers were appreciative 19,689 fans turned out on a day on which other sporting events were canceled or postponed. "I don't think we really care about the coronavirus," goalie Carter Hart said. "Some other people do." The Flyers had been sensational as they shot up the standings and were fighting with Washington for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The Flyers had defeated the Bruins in a shootout in both games of the series this season, including a bizarre ending in January when Boston's Brad Marchand overskated the puck at center ice on a shootout attempt. Gritty poked fun at the misstep before Tuesday's game by holding a photo of an oversized red arrow pointing down at an encircled puck as Marchand looked behind him. The frivolity didn't last for long, and the Flyers pounded Rask, taking 24 shots over the first two periods. Rask stood tall in net and got the cushion he needed late when Bergeron's shot from the circle appeared to get deflected by a Flyers stick and went in for a 2-0 lead. "Couldn't get anything past him," Flyers coach Alain Vigneault said. "That goal that they got on their power play at the end of the second period seemed like it gave them confidence and momentum because in the third period they were the better team." The Bruins broke through on Hart, the first goalie in NHL history under 22 with two, seven-game win streaks, late in the second. Grzelcyk buried one from the point on the power play for his fourth goal of the year and a 1-0 lead with 1:21 left in the second. At that point, the Flyers had outshot the Bruins 21-13. Also at that point, it didn't matter much to Boston. Boston took the lead only moments after center Coyle dove across the ice and broke up a pass to Hayes just in front Rask that kept the game scoreless. The Flyers had won at least nine straight games for the seventh time in franchise history. "We knew the streak they were on and they are really good at home, so we had to be big in the third and luckily Tuks made good saves all night and we just tried to keep the puck moving," Grzelcyk said.
