.@FriedgeHNIC reports the Penguins will reach out to Kyle Dubas about their openings.

The other clarification is that Dubas mentioned at his press conference that he wasn’t considering another NHL job next season other than Leafs GM. He had said that he considered family to be a crucial element in his potential decision.
The problem is, it wasn’t Dubas who decided to end the association – in fact, he wouldn’t have had the time to do so if he’d wanted to. His agent offered Shanahan new terms for a contract, and that’s when it was over.
Will this decision have an impact on Dubas’ willingness to return to the NHL? Time will tell, but three things have to happen before a return can happen: the Maple Leafs have to agree to Dubas talking to the Penguins, Dubas has to agree to an interview, and obviously the Pennsylvania outfit will have to be charmed by Dubas to make him their new general manager.
– It’s unbelievable.

– Quite special.
One of the pleasures of baseball: when a batter hits a home run right after an intentional walk, as Nolan Gorman of the Cardinals just did. pic.twitter.com/YONdzLKZdH
