Also, this must have just happened. The guy Jr's crew has been training with was just in Vegas working with Pac a couple weeks ago.

Lol at Vegas fans somehow thinking they are better off now. (no, you still gave away assets for nothing)

They're just being idiot teenagers. They were all legit stoked and will remember that forever.

The other thing... I didn't see any of it, but Drouin was on with a group of real pros/prospects and the kids all said he was far and away superior to everyone else. Like not even close.

14-15 year old kids can be real dicks btw.

On another note, my son was on the ice with Drouin yesterday.

There's a group of pros that train before the Bantam age group. Drouin stayed on and passed around and did a couple drills with the Bantams. Very cool.

But again, you can't discount that it costs an extra year and an extra $1M for any high end player to sign in Calgary. That's the same deal that Gaudreau was offered to stay in Calgary, not what he got on the open market.

Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

I mean he's the exact same age as Gaudreau, scored the exact same number of points last year, got the exact same contract that Gaudreau was offered. (yes but it doesn't kick in for a year) That's how much it costs to re-sign these type of players. I think that's amazing work by Treliving to make the...

Re: Thee Official 2022 Offseason Thread: Where Yzerman Is a Viking

Thanks for the story there Cashin. Seeing how big hockey is in Canada, do you all think something will actually be done about this? Or will it just 'go away'? I know what would happen here. It would litigate until it's largely forgotten because the US is one of the worst places on the planet. I rea...

This is predictable I guess, but sums it up:

“The only answer is simple and obvious. The primary motivation of Hockey Canada is not to compensate those injured as a result of its activities, but rather to insulate itself, its officers and directors from civil liability.”

Sorry about the massive quotes. That's behind the Globe and Mail paywall, so not sure if I'll be able to access it again.
