What’s going on with that bum Alexis Lafrenierre? 5 games and no points, meanwhile Hoglander says hi.

Elliotte Friedman: “John Chayka was offered a position by HBSE, owners of the New Jersey Devils, who also run the 76ers, Crystal Palace + are serious bidders for the NY Mets. Some kind of analytics/sport science leadership role across some/all those platforms.”
NHL comes down hard on former Coyotes GM, John Chayka.

He has been suspended by the commissioner for conduct detrimental to the league and game.


Chayka cannot be involved in NHL business through Dec. 31.

And as a parting gift from Chayka, the team lost numerous draft picks.
Well, punishment came down from the league on Wednesday, in the form of forfeited draft picks.

Specifically, the Coyotes lost their second-round choice in 2020 as well as their first-round selection in 2021, leaving the cupboard extremely bare when it comes to future draft picks
an NHL owner asked Meruelo for permission to speak with Chayka, which the former denied. Chayka reportedly then lied to Meruelo, telling the owner that he wasn’t seeking a position with another team, but seeking to “build relationships with owners in hockey” and “get market knowledge,” according to ESPN. Afterwards, Chayka told Meruelo he sought to be released from his contract, so he could accept a new position with the team, which he said allowed greater opportunities within the Devils’ owners vast sports portfolio.

Meruelo felt “betrayed,” according to ESPN, but offered to discuss the situation after the season. Chayka was skeptical of ownership, and felt that was “unreasonable,” according to the report, which said tensions elevated when Meruelo learned the position Chayka desired was more similar to the one he held Arizona then Chayka had led him to believe.

“This is where things fell apart. The Coyotes felt it was a pattern of misrepresentation,” a source told ESPN. “He tried to finesse it. There are some people that just think they’re the smartest people in the room, and every now and then it comes back to bite them.”

His analysis of his situation assumed his contract was a variable.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Looks like the Blues are trying to trade defenseman Vince Dunn. He's on a a one-year, $1.875 deal. Craig Berube is publicly all over him for poor coverage this young season. Thought to be many teams enquiring.

Penguins GM Rutherford has resigned! :shock:
Frank Seravelli:

Wow. Pens announce GM Jim Rutherford has resigned for personal reasons.
From the Pens:
Jim Rutherford has resigned as general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, citing personal reasons.

Patrik Allvin, the team's assistant general manager, has been promoted to interim GM, and the search for a new GM will begin immediately.
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."

Pitts has a new GM who will want to make his mark on the team quickly! Let's offer up Loui, Virts, Benn and a 3rd rounder for Crosby and Malkin.

Rutherford was always active. The decisions weren't always the best, but it was never dull. I liked that he didn't get too impressed by the smell of his own shit and was always willing to move on from a mistake. And while he was very active around the margins, he kept Sid and Geno. Doesn't take a genius to draft or hold those guys, but not every GM is able to do it, to say nothing of surrounding them with enough to win Cups.

Heard him interviewed. Doesn't even sound like the same guy. Voice seems higher and less accent. Talks way faster.

What’s the deal with Lafrenierre? Is he a bust? Is he the 2nd coming of Alexander Daigle? Should have Stutzle gone 1st overall?

I have this fat tub in my pool and I was wondering what was wrong...

"I was told that he came in over 300 pounds in training camp. The feeling might be that he's playing at 285."

Could be, but then again I grabbed Jack Hughes in my fantasy league draft and he's up to 7 points in 6 games, so maybe give him a year?
