They are technically in Glendale, no? They used to be called Phoenix Coyotes so I stick with that.

Chevy's meeting was bumped up to today seems pretty straightforward he will be done as well. 

From what I've heard the arena location is the biggest problem.. Glendale is in suburb in the middle of nowhere. They tried to build up around the arena but its still a weird location. A much more central arena maybe helps but idk if thats enough alone. The franchise has also been run so poorly for so long they just havent been competitive in a long time and now their rebuilding the 8 year rebuild again once more all the while icing the worst roster Ive probably seen in years. They should move but Buttman has seemed super willing to die on that hill so Im not sure they ever will.

Yeah - but I just remember it so when talking about the city, it just pops into my head they were once the PHX Yotes.

I agree it's odd how hard they are trying to NOT move them, but with the success of Vegas and Kraken in terms of attendance and excitement, I wonder if this might slowly change his mind that they need to move the organization to a city that actually likes hockey.

Chevy just got cleared. Heres the link to the statement:

 

This shocks me...really does. 

Wasn't it him and Coach Q who came out weeks ago and state that they knew nothing about this? If so, he should be banned from the NHL.

Yeah we can only hope. As far as Canada goes Quebec would be the ideal choice imo. Theres been some talk Toronto could support a second team, Im sure it could but I want those Nordiques back first.

I agree. Q was full of shit and definitely denied it and even doubled down on his denial in the press conference in Florida the other day. I think Chevy's statement was much more lawyeresque and didnt really say much if I remember but Id have to dig it up. I think the whole things a crock of shit. If he was at that meeting and it definitely sounds like he was you cannot absolve him. The statement from the NHL basically says he wasnt in a position of power and wasnt in a senior management position and wasnt in a decision making position. They said he thought it was going to be investigated. Bull fucking shit. The guy was there and even if that was the first time he found out about; he did nothing about it. He doesnt have to be in any god damn position to go to the police and report the incident or reach out to help Beach.

I also miss the Nordiques, even though they were Quebec Rival. 

I'd say no to another Toronto team. The one they have sucks, they don't need another shit team in the city. I wouldn't mind a team in Hamilton or London, but certainly another Canadian team is needed.

I agree. Don't doing anything is a weak man's move, and he was full of shit and a prick for nothing doing more after the meeting. 

Just another reason to hate the Jets.

I dunno, how much power over it do you think he had? He might have been in the circle but we can never know the details. He may have been told the matter was ‘resolved’. It is fishy as fuck but given how they scalped Q it makes me believe that Cheveldayoff had less to do with it, it is only good PR for Bettman to cut down Cheveldayoff as well. 

Quebec City won’t get a team, small city and they are all already hockey fans, doesn’t matter what team they like, they already love hockey. They want markets with no hockey presence so they can convert fans. Though, I’d pick the Nordiques all well the same

Look I’m thinking that Cheveldayoff knew there was an incident but not criminal activity, we can say all we like about calling the cops but if all he was told was that there was an incident and that it is ‘resolved’ he probably thought nothing of it. the full details of what happened may still have been in the dark. Not that I’m defending anything that has happened I’m just trying to rationalise the results.

And for all we know that certainly could be the case but in 10 years when nothing happens, Beach is off playing in 3rd tier Germany...It would have taken the minimal effort required to find out if anything happend, he knows all the people that knew and "made" decisions and he could have reached out to Beach himself even. You're right though the easy decision would have been to cut bait with Chevy as well so there must be something there. Im more interested in these talks with the PA now and Donald Fehr. Theres more heads to role Im thinking.

Did Beach report the incident to the NHLPA in 2010?

Yeah that was one of the things to come out in his interview with Rick Westhead there on monday (i think it was monday) He said he talked to a PA rep on two occasions and they said they would or are reporting to Donald Fehr. Fehr did release a statement that didnt really say much but did apologize. Beach had a phone call interview with both the PA and Buttman over the weekend, I believe yesterday the players reps for all 32 teams had a phone call to discuss Fehr's future as well.

Eichels off to Vegas. Thats a massive get for them as the number 1 thing they needed was a legit #1 center when he gets healthy. They really didnt give up alot all things considered. Tuch, Krebbs, a 1st and 2nd round pick is whats been reported. Krebbs is a real nice looking prospect and I like Tuch but you have to like this trade for Vegas overall.

Eichel will be a great player for them next season.

So the timeline im hearing is 3-4 months till hes back on the ice. Would give him a couple months of play to get up to speed before playoffs. This Vegas team is going to be scary. 

I heard five, thatis nearly the entire season, right?

Guess well see, 5 months is closer to most of the season.  If he isnt back its more interesting as they are going to have to make changes given their cap situation in the off season either way.

Well somethings gotta give here for the nucks. First head to roll is Travis Green I figure. Im not sure Benning will be back for next season either. I dont know what the problem is exactly, well just that theres so many. Easily our deepest top 9 forward group since like 2012 and this is nearly our worst season in history to date. Far too many players underperforming and looking like theyve checked out, systems that arent working and arent suited to the personal. Just a disaster overall. The real tragedy is how hard these games have been to watch.. I might just have to take a break for my mental.

Canucks blew it all up late last night.. press conference today. Green and assistant coach Baumgartner fired, Benning and assistant gm Weisbroad fired. Cleaning full house here. Budreau already announced as Green's successor.. 2 year deal for him. The interim Gm is officially Stan Smyl but it sounds like its a committee with our AHL Gm taking part, both Sedins and the one management guy to survive Benning and co. Exciting to see what happens here. This is basically what I was hoping for but I really didnt expect to happen.

The Sedins just retired, what can you expect from them? Probably more useful on the ice than some of the current players
