Reading Assignments

  • The big news from yesterday was late in the day, so you may have missed it: Dave Tippett is out after eight seasons at the helm of the Coyotes. [Coyotes]
  • What prompted this? The same thing that prompted the trade of Mike Smith and the non-tendering of Shane Doan: new ownership, new priorities. [Arizona Republic]
  • Scott Cullen takes a look at what the Hurricanes can expect from Trevor van Riemsdyk. [TSN]
  • The deal with the Canes wasn’t the only one the Golden Knights made yesterday: they also shipped David Schlemko to the Canadiens. [Canadiens]
  • Say goodbye to Bill Peters’ challenge-disguised timeout if a proposal to penalize unsuccessful challenges with a delay-of-game penalty becomes reality. [TSN]
  • Linda Cohn, NHL Commissioner? [New York Post]
  • Mike Darnay from Pensburgh had a great tweet thread discussing the emotions surrounding Marc-Andre Fleury’s departure from the Penguins. This sounds familiar to how a lot of us felt when the player taken second behind Fleury in 2003 was traded last March, doesn’t it? [@MikeDarnay]
  • And finally, when Jeff O’Neill was drafted in 1995, Bob McKenzie was the editor of The Hockey News. He, uh, wasn’t a fan:
  • Well, now O’Neill is a cohost on a Toronto radio show, and they talked about that scouting report with McKenzie yesterday... [TSN 1050]
  • ...and they cooked up a scouting report of O’Neill’s broadcasting career to counteract what Bobby Mac had to say 22 years ago.
