Always a pleasure to chat with Brian Skrudland. He says he understands how Huberdeau must be feeling right now, and tells us the story behind the plastic rats fans are throwing on the ice. https://t.co/tBnly5ctiV

It’s often said that the world of professional field hockey is small and difficult to break into. The Kyle Dubas situation once again confirms this ideology, as things are rapidly becoming clearer.
SNDP’s Chris Johnston told the site’s podcast that, according to what he hears from his sources, there’s a 98% chance Dubas will receive an offer from the Penguins. Johnston, for his part, doesn’t put his percentage quite so high, but believes that the odds are in his favor.
That’s huge considering what he said less than two weeks ago in a press conference. How quickly things changed in Dubas’ mind.
Let’s not forget that he told reporters that he couldn’t see himself in the NHL anywhere but Toronto, and that a possible return would depend on the opinion of his family, which has seen it all in recent years.
However, I share Johnston’s view of the situation. The situation Dubas described in his press conference is not what happened.
He couldn’t make a decision, Shanahan told him not to come back, which is quite different.
One has to wonder what will happen with Matthieu Darche, who made a good first impression in the first round of interviews. Could he be named GM if Dubas is named team president? We’ll have to keep an eye on that, but it’s clear that the situation is evolving rapidly.
– Interesting stuff.

– Dallas hangs on.
The Stars finally showed some aggression in their play in this first period. Several good scoring opportunities. It’s 1-1 after 20 minutes.
Very nice goal by Jason Robertson to tie the game, hitting the puck in the air. @RDSca
