    Heard that months ago. League will eventually get to 36 teams and expansion fees will be in the $1 billion dollars plus range.

    Babs never made sense for that roster anyway.

    If he’s getting let go, shouldn’t the person who hired him be held responsible as well?

    Guy should have been fired the day he went all in rather than trading bob and panarin.

    shame stuff like this doesn't happen anymore.

    A fuck it, lets play a best on best series in the summer and see what happens.

    How fucking great would it be if we got a 5 game series between the US and Canada to kick off training camp?

    Going up in the air, snatching a pass out of the air, and am immediately dropping it and scoring in one motion is pretty sick

    Barstool sucks but I kind of expected that where there was smoke there was fire.

    1. Babcock has a laundry list of former players that think he’s a POS, and he’s not changing anything at his age.

    2. The reason their pod is able to get high level guests is because they don’t report or leak anything unless a player is 100% comfortable with it, and they doubled down on it, hard.

    you’d be cool with your boss demanding to see your phone and then scrolling through your pictures in front of everyone? If it was about getting to know someone he would have asked them to send 4 or 5 pics that he’d put up and allow players to talk about themselves

    the issue was that some players felt compelled to literally turn over their phone and let the coach go through it. How would you feel at age 20 something if your boss went through your phone? Especially considering the odds of having nudes and shit from hook ups on there is quite high.

    I guess it depends on how it was done.

    Demanding no. But also I thought this was a one on one thing, trying to get to know each other. Just feels like it was good intentioned and he wasnt being a POS.

    Granted Babcock deserves absolutely zero benefit of the doubt. Not like im going to die on this hill for him

    I read the one story that Babcock asked them to show one picture from their phone that represented themselves (might not have been the exact wording), not that Babcock took their phone and scrolled their photos.

    I think that quote came from an old assistant though.

    this had to be more than that though if he was forced to resign.

    I had posted that. It was a coaches meeting, not a players meeting. Wouldn't be a shock if he treats his coaches differently than he does his players.

    The context I gathered was that with vets like Jenner and Gaudreau, it was a "Show us a picture so we can get to know you" type of thing. That's why they didn't think much of it.

    With rookies/young fringe players it was significantly different thing, and a power trip/invasion of privacy.

    On 32TP Friedman made it sound like the person that went to the PA wasn’t even on CBJ. I could have misheard but I got the sense a young player told a friend on another team about what happened and that player was concerned enough to go to the PA.

    ESPN did a player poll and there were some fun answers about teams players are excited to see:

    Josh Morrissey, Winnipeg Jets: I would say probably Chicago, just with Bedard coming in and so much hype around his game. I have not seen his shot live. Of course I've seen it many times on TV and social media. He's a young guy and you definitely don't want to be the guy that takes the new young prospect lightly and he makes you look silly, so we'll have to be ready for him. Certainly every level he's been at, he's produced. Plus, they're in our division, so we'll play him a lot. So it'd be cool to play them.

    Matthew Tkachuk, Florida Panthers: I'm excited to see what Boston does after their season last year, how they follow that one up.

    Dylan Larkin, Detroit Red Wings: Pittsburgh Penguins. Like, the 13-year-old me would be thrilled with Erik Karlsson joining [Kris] Letang, [Evgeni] Malkin and [Sidney] Crosby. That's pretty cool. I'm excited to watch them.

    Bissonnette read the text that he received from the anonymous player and it was someone on a different team. Paraphrasing: "Babs is up to his old tricks again. It's the same shit he did to me."

    My money's on Marner.

    Stamkos better learn to kill penalties and rough up some guys if he wants a long term deal from the Lightning.
