It had to happen on a day like today…
Now I learn that Sportsnet’s Frank Seravalli has mentioned that the Golden Knights may also have been tempted by the lure of Robidas Island.
Not a very chic story. You’ll agree.
I’m telling you, it’s a weird day in the field hockey world.
So there you have it, it seems that this tactic made its way to the Nevada desert according to the informant, and that the system was used to hide Nolan Patrick’s contract last season.

🛡Maxine Comtois could sign with the team

Patrick, 24, is known, like Matt Murray, for being a constant target for injury. So seeing him on the Knights’ long-term injury list came as no surprise.
We all thought, ‘Nolan’s hurt again. Ah well…”
Except that, if we dug deeper, the main player might have been able to play after all, and his $1.2 million contract should have counted towards the club’s coffers.
You’ll tell me that wouldn’t have made much difference. $1.2 million is next to nothing on an NHL team’s payroll.
Again, it’s funny (read ironic here) that the NHL isn’t doing anything with this. But then again, Toronto and Vegas are big, high-paying markets for the Bettman Circuit’s coffers.
Reacting would be a bit like shooting yourself in the foot, wouldn’t it?

Lots of offensive firepower. That forward group will be a great test for Mailloux and Reinbacher. https://t.co/8pjX8UcbnZ
