Speaking of goal tender interference, a new rule change is that if you challenge and lose, you get a minor penalty.

Imagine the crowd reaction. They are already pissed about the call (because their home team, in their opinion was screwed). Now they go on the penalty kill, and if the team scores, are going to be going nuts for the rest of the game.

The only thing that is going to save them is that there are going to be few challenges. But I could see a coach (Torts maybe) taking a bad challenge just to fire up a crowd and by extension the team.

I got my bet down yesterday. Bolts opened at 5-1 and are now 7-1to win the Cup. Guess who’s next best odds???? Knights at 12-1. (William Hill). That’s what I had Bolts at last year (12-1) with the best odds last year. ...Shows the book really wants a lot of $$ moving to Vegas/Boston/TO/ etc etc.

The Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues acquired Justin Faulk and a 5th for Joel Edmundson, prospect Dominik Bokk and a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

After the trade, the Blues signed Faulk to a seven-year contract extension worth $45.5 million (annual average value of $6.5 million).

DRAMA with DROUIN?

With days to go before the season rumours are swirling that the Canadiens forward is available.m

Hard to believe.

A Montreal fan: Drouin gives it 60% 50% of the time...thats 110% in Drouin math.

That seems to me to be a reasonable number. Many of you follow salary and cap issues way closer than I. Does it appear to you that the recent contracts we’ve seen, like this one, are more of what should be the norm—as opposed to Marner’s, which clearly was off the hook stupid.

Toronto looks like complete idiots. Here are the major RFAs from this year:

Point: $6.75
Tcachuk: $7
Werenski: $5
McAvoy: $4.9
Laine: $6.75

Marner:$10.8

Thanks. Thought so. But of course we all know that TO is the center of the hockey universe, so the players there need to be paid accordingly.
