I didn't read it because the original article was at The Athletic. But is he saying that his bipolar disorder was not diagnosed until recently?

Is it just me or is anyone curious about what’s going on with Rick Nash?

Nash had some sort of injury problem the last I heard so he wasn't in a position to sign a contract....

Yeah, he talked about taking a year off. Concussion.

So apparently the hurricanes will play two games in the whalers uniform this season.
Personally I think that’s so cool. I plan on watching at least one of those.

Business wise, we’ll have to see how the Carolina crowd reacts. I don’t have a pulse on the fans there (what’s left of them) so I’m not sure what the sentiments are but I expect plenty of whalers fans to be there in attendance and possibly some rekindled interest from the Hartford area (and elsewhere)in buying some merchandise. Plus people love vintage.
Low cost business move, seems like a good one from dundon.

How many games for Wilson? It'll be more than 5. Will it be more than 10?

Any interesting names on the waiver wire?

Sam Gagner is on waivers...he has a Zack Smith like contract, although better production.

Putting Zack Smith on waivers was the right move from a business perspective.

They should be using him on the 4th line and moving White to 2C. I think that's a win-win for everyone.

That's silly. It's not really on him that he had a bad season last year, that was a horrific team - like Ottawa. Weird that that guy is always the scapegoat, but w/e. He's quite expensive, so he'll clear I assume.

The Leafs lose both Curtis McElhinney and Calvin Pickard on waivers. Garrett Sparks will be their NHL backup this season...I dunno who they have beyond that.

What do you mean "lose"? Did both of them get picked?

Oh, I see. Pierre didn't think either one would get taken. Wonder if the boys will bring it up tomorrow morning. Doubt it.

Plekanec and Alzner healthy scratches for Montreal tonight against Toronto. I was surprised by that news

Strange move. Watch Kotkaniemi lose 10-15 draws.

Alzner's been terrible for them (and was a terrible signing from day one). I dunno about Plekanec, but that guy's last good season was 15/16. I'm not sure why Montreal brought him back.

Tom Wilson suspended 20 games. Wow. Good.
