I stand by this tweet. But again, I emphasize the word DEPTH, and also that trades don’t complete on my time. So hang on.

Around the NHL…

I’m not entirely sure what the NHL can do here, but maybe they can pull the 2022 NHL Draft from Montreal to start.

Montreal took Logan Mailloux in the first round of the NHL draft — that tells you everything you need to know about the culture of toxic masculinity in hockey. (Hockey Unfiltered with Ken Campbell)

Mailloux will speak to the press this morning. Unless Montreal received the victim’s blessing — as Katie Strang alludes to here — this is very wrong. Just a reminder: Not getting drafted is not the end of Mailloux’s hockey career. I believe in second chances, but let him earn it over time. And by time, I don’t mean 30 fucking picks

The awkwardness and shock over Montreal picking that kid is telling. This puts so many in a position they didn’t anticipate. Sad.

david barnard

consider the optics of the Mailloux pick by MB after he was already back-pedaling from the Aldridge scandal in CHI during the time he was Dir of Hockey Ops there. he looks like Schultz from Hogan’s Heroes-“I know NOTHING!”
