Apparently Kadri was rewarded for signing with the Flames by having Eakin and Milano as his linemates today.🤣

Eakin ended up in Calgary? I missed that. He might actually surprise and fit into a Sutter system. I wouldn't expect much, but it wouldn't really surprise me if he earned a role there.

Both him and Milano are on PTOs so he has to make the team.

I heard Zegras talking crap about Arizona on spitting chiclets the other day and then this happens last night

Personally I love the hit and the fact there was probably some malice behind it for the disrespect Zegras showed. 

Edit: Zegras was asked if he had the Yotes game circled on his calendar and he had replied “no one has Arizona games circled on their calendar”

Well that’ll knock the off-season rust off a guy.

I bet Meatballs is just as compelling, but without all the curse words. I like DG’s style better in that way. 

I'd make that switch instantly.

For one, Torts just talked about the radio on after a win. Nothing else matters. No apple slices after a good effort in this guy's world.

You would trade out Granato for Tortella? Seriously?

I wouldn't.  I think Torts could get results for a year or two but would, as he has on other teams, wear out his welcome.  If they don't win and he's ruined the locker room you're looking at yet another rebuild.  Torterella's method is not sustainable; I think Granato's is.

Given the make-up of the Sabres now, I would not.  He is the kind of coach I would want for a veteran team.

Yeah, should Granato eventually hit a wall w/ a veteran team, a guy who's style is more geared to a vet team becomes more viable (not necessarily Torts, but a guy who is less focused on development).  

Not a given that Granato will be ineffective with a vet team when the kids eventually become that.  He seems to be a good coach for Okposo, Girgensons, Skinner, & Anderson.

That's a nice, clean, hard hit. Heads up chief.
