Pittsburgh isn’t just a city devoted to hometown boys. As Pittsburgh does mental gymnastics to land JT Miller, Buffalo Sabers fans are stirring up NHL trade rumors for local boy Patrick Kane. Our folks in New York have been mulling the speculation of trading Matthew Barzal to get him something before free agency. The massive Huberdeau deal in Calgary set the stage for a massive deal for David Pastrnak and the Boston Bruins. Teddy Bluger and the Pittsburgh Penguins also need a good rest.
And Huberdeau’s signing also made my favorite headline of the day. “Huberdeau is pleased with the extension…” Give me $84 million, and I’ll be a little pleased too.
