Last year, the Florida Panthers managed to get their hands on the NHL’s player of the hour. Matthew Tkachuk transformed the club and gave the organization the character it needed to take it to the next level.
I say player of the hour because he has become, more than ever, a role model. Even if he hasn’t won the MVP award or even the Stanley Cup, he’s a benchmark.
So here he is, signed long-term to Sunrise. He’s in the same division as his brother Brady, who is the Senators’ captain and has also signed a long-term contract with his team.
According to Bob Bissonnette, he’s hearing echoes of a Brady Tkachuk for Aleksander Barkov trade. Wow.
Rumor Boys at it again👀

It’s rare for two captains to be part of the same transaction. It happened when Martin St-Louis was traded to the Rangers for Ryan Callahan back in the day, in 2014.
Obviously, I don’t expect the deal to go through. Unless Brady pushes really, really hard? But then again…
I don’t know how much of this is Biz being fabulous, but it seems like there are often rumors like this about Brady and the Canadian market of Ottawa. He didn’t necessarily want to sign long-term in Ottawa without the title of captain…
His leadership seems to be in question…
All in all, I wonder how tempting the idea of adding a center like Sasha Barkov can be for an Ottawa group that didn’t make enough progress last year. I don’t expect it to happen, but…
Expect Mitch Love to join the Washington Capitals as an assistant coach.

According to him, immunity should not have been granted to the players and they should have been suspended. https://t.co/03ozA0o1eC
