    A little late to this. But I've been swamped at work. So I just updated the OP with Weal's new deal.

    They've apparently also asked to speak with Sean Burke. Permission granted for him, too.

    Updated the OP with the signing of Otto Leskinen from earlier today.





    Also must specify that I put Leskinen's ELC at maximum because it's what CapFriendly does automatically for ELC's until they get more details on the AAV.

    Updated the OP. With the Conference Finals now set, we know the Columbus 2nd Round Pick is #50 and the Winnipeg 7th Round Pick is #206.

    Andrew wouldn't tease something like this for the hell of it. So something must be up.

    Given what he covers for HEOTP, a ECHL team in Quebec is my guess.

    It's what I replied to him. I asked if it was AHL, NHL, or ECHL related. I also predicted that if it is ECHL, then my guess is it's related to the new arena in Trois-Rivières.

    He posted another tweet later talking about the arena's construction is going as planned but there is no tenant. It will either be a QMJHL team or Habs' new ECHL affiliate (which is my hope). I posted that tweet in the Laval/ECHL thread.

    As the title suggests, all of the games at home will start @ 7PM, including preseason. They polled season ticket holders.

    No more missing games. That's not late. For the fans on TV. Being on time. For the fans at the BC too. Who're from far spots. It's in our and their advantage.
