It's more about Laine being goofy and admitting stuff like not knowing anyone on the Jets when he got drafted because no one ever played as them in NHL video games because they sucked.

Actually sounds like Andersson is going back to Sweden. I don't know what the gently caress they were doing with that whole thing

Usually Rangers management is pretty good with this poo poo but handling Andersson has been weird. Best I can figure is that since he was injured in NA during the WJCs and rehabbing in the states so they decided to give him a few AHL games, but are going to send him back now? I dunno

As for burning ELCs, I think if they feel it's best for Chytil to get NHL experience at the end of the year and that would be a benefit for his development then they'll do it. I don't think the ELC thing matters as much to teams as does the 40 game limit before you burn a year of their experience towards becoming an UFA

agreed but i would also like him to be fired now so i don't have to do an entire offseason of handwringing waiting for it to happen. fire him, make ruff interim coach, watch team continue to plummet, clear the rest of the staff out (allaire can stay) in the summer

I listened to Doug Maclean’s spot on the new Marek/Friedman podcast and Maclean said that Detroit was at one point discussing a three-way trade for Fedorov, Forsberg, and Lindros. It was unclear exactly what he meant because he said Forsberg would’ve come to Detroit and Fedorov would’ve gone to Quebec, which leaves Lindros to... stay in Philly? I’m an idiot: Feds to Quebec Forsberg to Detroit, and Lindros to Philly obviously.

Anyway, I’ve never heard any of that rumor before but add it to the pile of potential Lindros deals from back in the day, I guess. What a weird time.

Lindros was property of the nords but refused to play in sunny quebec; he was traded to philly for a stupid amount of stuff including forsberg.

To be fair, all three of them are incredibly good. I think they also get a bit of a bump since they play in the KHL.

that cyrillic character (ё) is usually transliterated to roman as a "yo" in russia and an "e" outside of russia. this is why semyon varlamov was called "Semen Varlamov" before he came to the nhl. i think they've started to transliterate it the russian way in the americas recently
