Hockey Notes On A Monday Morning

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - The Zach Bogosian story hasn’t been told in full since he left the Leafs. He didn’t necessarily enjoy his only season in Toronto.

He left for Tampa where he said “they just get it.” - Hyman keeps talking about how much he loves Edmonton. I guess if you say it often enough, yo...

We Are Officially In The Dog Days Of August

I slept until 10am, that should tell you we are now in the slow period of the NHL season. News will be slow for the next month or so, but I am not complaining.  I could use a nice break from a season like no other. I will continue to do what I do, post real news and avoid the click bait material. A few off days coming up but not yet.  I am around, keeping an eye on things but don't expect much news. Everyone needs a break, from GMs to players, time to do just that.

Too Much Money Spent

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, It was another week for the economics of the NHL to defy the laws of, well, economics. This is a league, let’s not forget, that has lost hundreds of millions of dollars in the past 18 months because of COVID-19. Maybe a billion. Maybe more. To deal with these losses, the NHL has added about 25 NHL jobs through expansion. This has happened at a time when all 31 teams were limited to just 28 home games in the 2020-21 season. For those games, the ...
