Dave Nonis, who previously served as general manager of the Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs over his career as a hockey executive, was let go from his assistant GM position with the Anaheim Ducks, sources told The Athletic Saturday. Nonis, 55, was in the last year of his contract with Anaheim.  Team sources confirmed the move, which is part of Pat Verbeek’s reshaping of the Ducks’ front office since his hiring on Feb. 3. After Nonis was fired as Toronto’s GM in 2015, the Burnaby, B.C., native rejoined the Ducks organization in 2015 as a scout and consultant to former GM Bob Murray before being bumped up to an assistant role under Murray.

 Hall of Fame forward Bobby Hull is no longer serving as a team ambassador for the Chicago Blackhawks.  Hull played for Chicago for 15 years, collecting 604 goals and 549 assists. He was named a Blackhawks ambassador in a ceremony with fellow Hall of Famer Stan Mikita in 2008.

The Blackhawks said Monday they are redefining the role of team ambassador after Mikita died in 2018 and Tony Esposito passed away in August.

The San Jose Sharks claimed forward Ryan Dzingel off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday.  The Maple Leafs, who had acquired Dzingel as part of a deal with the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, intended to assign Dzingel to the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, where he would provide further depth for the franchise.

This is so funny - so the Laffs Harry Potter who did not want to overpay for a rental, wind up paying a 3rd rounder-23 or a 2nd-25 and a roster player in Nick Ritchie (on 10 out of 32 teams he's a roster player), and get a journeyman Russian D-man rental back. Plus Leafs they overpay Ritchie's contract in free agency. This is definitely a David Savardian spinnerama move!

Actually,  the fact that Toronto was able to get out of Ritchie's contract without retaining,  is a win. So they got  Ilya Lyubushkin for a 3rd rounder-23 or a 2nd-25. He is a serviceable defenseman and with San Jose claiming Ryan Dzingel,  again, it's a win for the Leafs. So, OK, Dubas used the spinnerama to correct his initial mistake. Good GMs recognize their mistakes?

Nick Ritchie is only 26 - I don't think quite washed up as a former 1st rounder 10th overall - Leafs could have bought him out at end of season and it would have hit their cap for $300K next year and $1.1Million the next - hardly big cap hit money and this year burying him in the minors cost them little in cap hit. I don't call Dubas a good GM for this move at all. They lost some forward depth that they will seek to replace.

Well, you could have had him on waivers for free. When I suggested that on here, I was crucified. So I guess the question is, "What is his true value?" The general consensus on here, at that time, was "0".  So.......................Also, they are a cap team, so every $ counts. Oh. The Leafs seem to be doing much better than us. And they will for a very long period of time, moving forward.

The San Jose Sharks have placed Lane Pederson on waivers.  This news comes right as the Sharks claimed Ryan Dzingel off waivers. San Jose needed to open up an NHL roster spot for him to join the team, and it appears that they viewed Pederson as expendable to do so.

at least 1 per game.......................

Not another team in the League that gets away with so much crap. Boston may be a close 2nd but the Leafs are top of the pack without a doubt.

Ya just gotta laugh sometimes. 

Some comments from the Montreal Gazette re the game on Mon.:

"The rich boys on the leafs are distracted, they can see the end in a month or two and they have to get Tee times at Pebble Beach, look into the tax benefits of buying that condo/house and where oh where to spent the off season. It's a lot of pressure, accountants, lawyers, agents and spouses, how is a kid with 10+ millions dollars supposed to think about a hockey game?"

And

"They beat the Leafs and big deal the Canadian Women's team would have shut them out. So just remember it was the Leafs, folks, just the Leafs."

Sheldon Keefe  updated the status of defenseman Jake Muzzin, who was injured in a collision with Canadiens defenseman Chris Wideman on Monday.  "He's feeling better today. He's travelled home and is resting there,” said Keefe.  “He's going to go through concussion protocols and all that kind of stuff. We'll be patient with that, of course. All considered, it's positive today in terms of how he's responding."  The 33-year-old did not travel with the team after the game and spent the night in Montreal for further testing and observation.

The Calgary Flames have hired former Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray, who resigned from the position in November after an investigation by the team into his workplace conduct, as a scout.  Murray’s primary task with the Flames will be scouting the West Coast. According to The Athletic, Murray attended the Ducks’ game against the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday at the Honda Center. 

Can we expect Babcock back soon? Teams just do not care about people's past.
