John Klingberg and Nazem Kadri are nonetheless free brokers. Francisco Franco remains to be useless. The Hockey Canada hearings continued by means of Day 2, and we realized a bit extra about what they swept below the rug. Dave Molinari checked out why the Pittsburgh Penguins signing Danton Heinen was a larger deal than most $1 million contracts, whereas this author tackled the potential Penguins trades, prospects, and the blue line. Finally, we debunk the NHL commerce discuss and message board claims that TSN’s Dave Poulin dropped a loopy Jonathan Toews to the Penguins commerce rumor.
He was wildly misquoted.
First, you possibly can take heed to Poulin’s radio hit on TSN 1050 right here. The “web” says Poulin mentioned Toews to the Penguins! He did say that, BUT he put a few phrases earlier than that, which modified the whole context. He mentioned, “My thoughts creation went to Pittsburgh IF they’d misplaced Malkin…”
So, we name BS, however that does not imply each rumor rag and nameless account is not going to grab on it with “sources.” I believed it was necessary that you recognize the reality.
Poulin’s penalty killing and shorties killed the Penguins within the 1989 playoff sequence (sure, the one which featured Game 5 when Mario had 5 objectives, Robby Brown had a hat trick, and a few goalie named Ron Hextall chased Brown with rage in his coronary heart).
