I was very impressed with Söderblom when he was here at the prospects tournament. The concerns that he would just be giraffey out there evaporated pretty quickly while watching that as he had a good amount of grace to him. He seems to have only gotten better since then.

Around the League

Fleury won’t be traded to Golden Knights, GM says: report - NHL

“There is absolutely no credence to that rumor at all,” McCrimmon told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I wouldn’t normally speak (officially) on such things, but there will be so much racket about this, it’s important to let people know that’s not going to happen.”

As long as he’s out of Chicago I don’t care where he goes.

2022 Olympics Gold Medal Preview: USA v Canada - The Ice Garden

Is this a hot take? I think it’s Canada’s game to lose. Despite being outplayed in the preliminary game, they’re rolling into this game having scored nearly double the amount of goals as the US. They’re loose, have production coming from all over the ice, and have a strong goaltender. They haven’t lost a game yet this tournament and I don’t expect them to do so now. Canada wins in overtime, because it has to go to overtime.

Pretty close.

Team USA had chances but they needed to be closer to perfect. Canada was absolutely the better team (especially with Team USA missing Decker), but it was a winnable game that the US women didn’t. Marie-Philip Poulin is money in gold medal games.

I want to ignore the Crosby part because I don’t give a shit about that mayo-huffing dorkface. I love this quote (even as somebody who wants Team USA to make her eat these words).
