Any details on their injuries yet?
The way Hamonic played last night he won't be any great loss.

Benning should have put a claim in for Honka. I think he's a step up skill-wise from our other D on the Taxi Squad. Might be nice to have him for the second PP unit too.
Fuck Honka! The Wrath of Bone is upon us

Sounds like a Lesbian convention topic.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Maybe we can convince the league to let him wear the flying "V" jersey every night. It will be an inside joke for fans.

Seems pretty mysterious but "The Province " is saying upper body. The thought is Benn would take that spot. If Hamonic cannot play either, they do have options but there sure isn't much NHL experience there. Province article .Apparently, if they wanted Jack Rathbone, Eriksson would have to be put back on the taxi squad.

That seems like a win-win. At this point, Loui isn't much more useful than one of the seat warmers they use at the awards shows when the stars have to take a piss.

I just hope Elmer stands down and resists making a move if they tumble down the standings. I’m fear him trading away the 2021 1st or Podkolzin to save his own skin.

Ya thats a worry. Hes been making progressively smarter decisions as hes gone along so there's hope hes figured it all out.

If this defensive mess goes much longer then he'll have to make a coaching change. At this stage its becoming a reality

If they’re going to hire a coach, hire a fucking good one. Spend some money- get a guy like Gerard Gallant.

Hell yeah get Gallant before Seattle hires him.
Cory Micalef, a fellow P.E.I. resident who played junior hockey with Gallant in Sherbrooke, Que., and in the NHL with the Detroit Red Wings, says Seattle or any NHL team would be lucky to have Gallant.

"He wins everywhere he goes," Micalef said. "He brings people together, the players play for him."

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Don't know how I overlooked this.

It's Mr Aquilini's opening night address to the fans;

That doesn't mean it was a dirty hit. People can get concussions from falling off the john. Claude is just going by the test protocol they have in the dressing rooms. I guess he flunked it so he has one. :look:

No harm in Jim having an unpublicized discussion about fishing and stuff on the old telephone. As long as Aqua is invested in improving even under shitty financial conditions, why not? Travis is OK and people are liking the younger coach thing but his best players---Pettersson, Hughes, Boeser, Horvat and Miller were going to be great with any coach. Not sure Travis is getting his message through to a number of the others.
Gallant is a good coach with a track record including player improvement.
