Let’s go over some news and notes:
- Bill Guerin abandoned Craig Leipold. And he also talked about trading and all that other fun stuff. [The Athletic]
Off the trail...
- Who’s taking home the Conn Smythe? None other than Victor Hedman. What a player. [Sportsnet]
- Everyone was freaking out on Twitter yesterday about Bob McKenzie’s tweet suggesting Jack Eichel could be involved in trade discussions, but no one decided to read through McKenzie’s full tweet thread. Eichel isn’t going anywhere (for now).
So, the face-value review appears as follows: Eichel doesn’t want out of BUF; BUF doesn’t want to trade Eichel; move along, nothing to see here. Fair enough. But some rumours are worth checking out/mentioning. Which I’ve now done. Now back to draft prep.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) September 28, 2020
