Most NHL teams have had most of their players in protocol at some point. Between this variant running its course, herd immunity building and a good percentage of positive tests coming with asymptomatic players, I'm guessing this is where all sports are headed.
Mikkola skates well and, like you say, he has an edge. He need to improve his zone exits and he has. He has the skill set and the willingness to be a Top 4 defender. He just needs NHL seasoning and he's getting it now.
I'm not sure if there is a deal in place, but I'd be shocked if Berube doesn't re-sign here. Armstrong has a history of committing to guys he believes in. He stuck with Hitchcock as long as he did for that reason.
Husso has come further with the Blues than Bishop did. Poor Ben got stuck in the AHL. But Husso hasn't done enough to fetch a true Top 4 defenseman in a trade, so I'd try to keep him on a two-year deal and then revisit the topic next year when he might have more trade value and the Blues might have a better handle on the guys behind him.
While I don't see the two sides replacing their lead negotiators, I could see the need for a mediator to resolve this. I'm not sure Manfred and Clark are capable of overcoming all the ill will from bargaining to make a deal.
I could see the Blues winning a round. Could everything come together perfectly and allow them to make a Cup run? That's not probable, but it's not a ridiculous premise either.
Human Growth Hormone was a great path to physical recovery. Many players in their 30s were sorry to see that crackdown.
Yeah, the wrestling program is kind of off in its own world, away from the SEC spotlight, doing big things.
I have no idea what Jontay is up to. He could make a lot of money playing pro basketball somewhere if he wanted to.
The players have been specific enough. That is not the problem. The two sides are miles apart and they famously incapable to bargaining constructively.
I am rooting for the Chiefs because I have family all in on the Chiefs in KC. Plus, Mahomes brought Whataburger to Missouri.
My says 2:32 right niw. Did I miss something?
DeJong will play somewhere, shortstop or DH, if he hits. If he doesn't hit, then he won't play as much and will get phased out one way or another.
The program is heading in the right direction for sure the MLS synergy can't hurt.
Any trade is tricky for salary cap reasons. A three-team trade can actually make it less tricky, if that third team is willing to take a salary cap hit in the process. But can you find a third team willing to take a cap hit? That is the hard part.
Nope, not in season. Tarasenko is playing too well.
Trouble is, most pitchers in baseball are coming back from some sort of injury in the last few years. Good luck acquiring an injury-proof pitcher who comes with no risks attached.
