    Teams could practice beginning at 2 PM today, but had to have negative tests to enter the teams facility. We are going to see a new wave of positives.

    GOALTENDERS: Teams will be allowed to add an additional goalie when two regulars are not available. This is in place for the rest of the season

    EMERGENCY CAP EXEMPTION: From here on in, teams in danger of dressing fewer than two goalies, six defencemen or 12 forwards for a game will be able to make emergency recalls. The cap hit of any such player cannot exceed $1-million.


    TAXI SQUADS: These are in-place until the All-Star Break, for now. Teams don’t have to use them; maximum of six players; no one can be on it more than 20 days. There are some eligibility requirements. You can’t be on it if you're on an NHL roster as of Dec. 22 (with the exception of emergency recall); are waiver-exempt; were on the NHL roster for at least 75 per cent of the regular-season days or played in 16 of a team’s last 20 games through Dec. 22 (goalies who dressed but did not play is counted as having “played”).

    Taxi squad players can practice and travel with the NHL team. Compensation is AHL-level pay with a stipend of $500 (US) each day they are on it.

    The schedule is on pause until at least Tuesday. Players returned to their NHL home bases on Sunday for testing and the option of their first post-Christmas practice. Keep an eye on the Sportsnet Twitter feed as teams announce COVID protocol updates. Buffalo, for example, cancelled practice and its media availabilities.

    Other item to keep an eye on: What happens to the schedule? What changes will there be, and could Canadian teams have some home games moved later in the season to protect revenue? Lots to be determined.

    They are playing way more aggressive than they should be for their skill set.

    Bad defense and started the wrong goalie. Also bad coaching.

    Offense is insanely talented.

    Nolan Patrick. Thanks enjj

    Wright reminds me of him a little, he does a lot of things well but nothing exceptional.

    Kent Johnson is so good too, it was between Johnson and ervidsson for my pick in my draft. I do not regret getting ervidsson but Johnson will be a better version of Trevor zegras

    Mctavish was third, he will be a better version of Brady tkachuk. 60 points a year 25-30 goals


    Great player but not perfect for a pool

    Pretty much since Carey Hart. How does the US/Russia/Sweden/Finland produce better goalies than y’all?

    No idea. The last 2 goalies I remember that dominated the WJ for us was Carey Price and Justin Pogge

    The CHL banned goalies from being selected in the Import Draft for like four years to help try and develop goalies, lol.

    I do think the issue in Canada is that the kids play too many games. The Toronto Marlboro U16 play like 75-80 games a season. Developing goalies is so hard when you’re playing that many games. In Finland I imagine that number is cut in half.

    But that means that goalies are only playing 40-50 games a year.

    But it also means less practice time. It’s hard to be a goalie and have to work your way out of slumps by just playing more games. You lose out on a lot of development with all those games.

    Ya that was stupid. Back in the day kids wanted to be like Patrick Roy. Once that generation filtered out no kid said I want to be like MAF or Cam Ward.
