from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,
The Los Angeles Kings have acquired veteran forward Torrey Mitchell from the Montreal Canadiens for a conditional draft pick, the teams announced Thursday. It’s the Kings’ fifth round pick that becomes the fourth rounder acquired for Dwight King last season if Los Angeles makes the playoffs, as noted by CapFriendly:
from Jonathan Wilis of Sportsnet,
Although it’s superficially easy to build a case that Eichel has been a disappointment this season, anything more than a cursory examination reveals that for the rubbish it is. He’s an awfully good player, and by and large he’s doing good things in a difficult situation. Buffalo’s problem isn’t that Eichel isn’t doing enough; it’s that they don’t have enough players like him.
from Josh Beneteau also of Sportsnet,
Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella was asked about how he picks who plays where on his forward lines and he dropped some hard truth.
It’s all bulls—.
Aaron Portzline from The Athletic has the full quote.
“It’s a bunch of bulls—. I get a kick out of us, as coaches… we talk about this, that and the other thing,” he said. “‘This is what I’m looking for.’ It’s a bunch of bulls—. We try things, and if it works, it works.”
Well whatever BS Torts is flinging, it seems to be working.
