Caeleb Dressel is an absolute freak of an athlete. Best swimmer since Phelps. He won his 4th and 5th golds last night, first swimmer not named Phelps since 1988 to win 5 golds in an Olympics. Unreal.

The only team this is bad for is the Rangers

Makes sense for Devils and Islanders

Good for Hawks, they need a good goalie since they don’t have a 1st, have to contend

If I’m the Isles 7.5m is too risky when we’re a contender and could focus on better spending (or more reliable spending) - there will be TDL targets.

For the Devils I guess there’s no risk I guess just depends on the price

This suddenly gives the Hawks a tandem of Fleury-Kevin Lankinen, to go along with a returning Jonathan Toews, a newly acquired Tyler Johnson, and a grossly overpaid but still an upgrade on D in Seth Jones. Knee-jerk reaction is this a playoff team in my mind.

The Rangers really traded a better winger in Buchnevich just to get Tarasenko a few weeks later?

If Tarasenko's fully healthy, then he's better than Buchnevich (though obviously, that's a BIG if). Also, it could be that they were hoping to get Eichel when they traded Buchnevich, and now that that's not working out, they're eyeing Tarasenko as a replacement.

Thing is, Tarasenko's body probably can't go back to his previous form after that many shoulder injuries. Buchnevich has significantly improved his 2-way game, which Tarasenko stopped doing and now that his offense has dropped off, he's less impactful overall.

Lehner puts out a thread (a handful tweets long) regarding Kane and the “attacks” he’s receiving online.

Lehner being one of the most open minded guys around tryna spread positivity.

Why Rangers? Trading Tarasenko could mean they can’t bring back Zibanejad/Strome, and they need centre’s way more than wingers.

de Grasse won bronze!

Sorry that this is off topic but I assumed many of you follow the Olypmics.


Solid run. I dig de Grasse too.

Surprised that an European won though. That sport has been dominated by Americans/Caribbeans.
