    Cal is really the only thing to be excited out, the rest of the list can be classified under "regular operations by every other team"

    Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to see Lizotte and Walker in the ASG
    I am thrilled that there's only one error. The point of the post is that not everything Blake has touched has turned to ****. I'm not a Blake fan, but he's made some good moves toward the rebuild. Remember that the trade for Phaneuf was one broken piece for another. Also, Nate Thompson (Part of the Gaborik/Phaneuf deal) returned a 4th in 2019 (Kim Nousiainen).

    The Blake era doesn't look all that much different than the Lombardi era when things started out. It took six years for DL to win a Cup. Whether or not Blake's plan works out is yet to be seen. So the worst thing that can happen is for management to do things "half assed" or fire Blake prematurely. Whatever the case, re-builds are long-term so firing Blake now would just set thing back again.

    So I'm slow but is this just a matter of him sucking/not fitting in with the club? Never seen this before and am curious. Wonder if locker room thang.

    No Kovalchuk news for a few days. Is this just a holding pattern until Dec 15? Seems odd he would occupy a roster spot with no plan for playing in any games. I am sure it is a lot more complicated than we know.

    Go Kings!

    If I'm not mistaken, a buyout of a 35+ contract does not result in any cap relief.

    What does Friedman mean by termination agreement?

    "Unconditional waivers"

    "A third type of waivers, "unconditional waivers," applies when a player is to be given an unconditional release from his contract, either by buyout or for the purpose of contract termination.

    A team may terminate the contract of a player for breach of contract at any time. Additionally, a player and team may mutually agree to terminate a contract at any time. This process can only be completed if the player clears unconditional waivers."

    From this I believe that he can request that the Kings terminate the contract freeing him up to return to the KHL . I have no clue how that would effect the cap hit
