Beat me by that much.  @Brawndo you have your finger on the pulse and what plants crave. 

Don't feel bad. I am Brawndo's GDT ragdoll.

Where is David Spade when you need him?

 

Good on Jbot for taking the hard line on this.  Waivers is the first step.  Termination the second.  Buh-Bye.

My read is that Berglund was screwed by his agent and the STL GM. He probably intended on staying in STL for the duration of his contract, planned life accordingly, and his agent dropped the ball on the deadline. 

Then, rather than being understanding, STL GM just took advantage. Big middle finger to Bergy. JBott probably not privy to any of this.

If this is true, STL GM is a POS, IMO

If this is true, this is not the end of it, for Berglund, at least.  There's at least one lawsuit there.

... and there was much rejoicing!

Surprised the NHL & NHLPA were cool with that happening this quickly.  But probably best for all involved to be done with it.

I’m going to have to disagree.  The agent or Berglund are to blame.  They had an obligation under the contract and they failed.  Why is that the GM’s fault?  The GM also did him a favor by giving him to a team that actually needed his services.  He had the opportunity to win the 2nd line center job on a young up and coming team.  That seems like a golden opportunity. Berglund failed.

I'm glad they're all moving on from the situation.

I am curious to know what actually happened here.

We'll never know. We never do. Disclosure agreements or something or other.

In my opinion, the GM was doing what was best for his team. Hockey is a business and that side can be ugly. If anyone is a piece of doodie it's clearly Bergland's agent for dropping the ball on submitting his no-trade list. 

Anyways, good riddance. When the ROR trade happened, his contract had me worried because of the length. Problem solved. This opens a spot for a kid to make an impression.

But I take it you're not happy about losing 10-22-28.

Fairly certain the player has to sign off on this prior to hitting waivers.  Shrugs all around.

Who said they are?  This is just the opening salvo, there may be objections from the NHLPA.

The Sabres tweet doesn't say "mutual."  I'm not sure this is over.

I'm not so sure in this instance. This ain't a FO position. My guess is that someone will talk.
