Gabriel Bourque signs in Winnipeg. Definition of a zero-sum player. Generates no offence, doesn't stifle much on defence, either. Rep for a penalty killer but the numbers don't really bear that out. Basically to the eye he doesn't screw up enough to be considered a detriment, but he doesn't bring anything to the table either.

If he's not forechecking and hitting everything in sight going full throttle, he's not really that effective, and you see that guy, like, every 20 games or so.

I honestly think he was kept around the extra year to help Sam Girard acclimate to the NHL.

I think the Jets are in REAL trouble. While most GMs are guilty of overdoing it or going for it too soon, Chevy waited too long. Now he's got a mess on his hands with one disgruntled star gone for peanuts and the other already intimating he wants out.

Josh Morrissey locked up to a team friendly, eight-year, 6.25M AAV deal. Starts next season. Was hurt part of last season.

Meanwhile, Wheeler told media the team felt the pressure of having to reach the final last season and it affected their play. Fair enough, it would perhaps be unwise for us to count them out just yet, although they need to get Laine and Connor signed.

Dustin Byfuglien, currently on personal leave from WPG, is believed to be using the time to ponder his NHL future. I’m not saying Byfuglien is retiring; I’m not saying he’s coming back to play. Only that he’s contemplating his options and there’s no timetable for a decision.

Hope everything is ok with Buff. One of the NHL's more interesting personalities.

Hoo boy, this could be baaaaad. Apparently Big Buff's injured ankle that took him out for 30 or so games last season still hasn't healed properly.
