ASU announcing the Coyotes won't be allowed to put their logo at center ice when they play in their University arena... what a joke this franchise is. How are they still allowed to play in the NHL? Just dissolve or move them already.

Can you imagine the Sens or Jets having those issues? Bettman would leave no stone unturned looking for new cities.

I think the Jets VS the Sens would be the perfect Stanley Cup!!! Bettman might not even show up!

I wonder what the players on the Coyotes must be thinking. Does it even feel like they're on an actual NHL team?

ASU has apparently clarified the comments and said the Coyotes will not be allowed to modify the ASU logo or anything on the ice without permission, but that the University will find some way to allow the Coyotes to be represented. Sounds like ASU just doesn't want to have to re-paint their own logo all the time. Another funny note was that ASU has a "standard clause in the contract" that allows them to kick out the Coyotes at any point for bad behavior as a tenant. Likely won't get used, but doesn't say much for an NHL team if they can be evicted from their arena at any point at the discretion of the host. As I said, it's a joke of a franchise and they shouldn't be playing in Arizona any more. This experiment has failed several times over and it's time Bettmen just moved on from there. Put them in Quebec City, put them in Houston, put them in KC, put them in Portland or wherever else that shows they have the most viable chance of succeeding, but the whole Arizona thing is a bit ridiculous, they've run out of chances.

Nordiques Minister Eric Girard travelled to New York yesterday to meet with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.

Jérôme Landry, from FM93 in Quebec City, gave more details on this meeting.
 

NEW: The "courtesy meeting" between Minister Eric Girard and Gary Bettman lasted 45 minutes today in New York. No further meetings planned at this time. The plan to bring 5 Senators games to Quebec City is still on the table."

Habs fans are starting to become familiar with the principle of hostile offers. After seeing the CH's GM take a chance on Sebastian Aho in 2019, fans saw the Hurricanes do the same to them last summer with Jesperi Kotkaniemi.

By not accepting the offer offered by the Canes, the CH was offered 1st and 3rd round picks in the 2022 draft. Remember that each salary threshold has its own compensation when it comes to hostile offers.

From what we can now understand, the NHL will increase the salary thresholds for draft pick compensation as part of the hostile bidding process for the 2022 season.

NHL teams are allowed to submit a restricted free agent player, and the offer sheet must be signed before draft picks are sent the other way. The amount and value of the draft picks are determined by the annual average value of the said sheet.

The new lowest AAV for draft selection compensation has been raised to $1,386,490, an increase of nearly $30,000 from a year ago. The new high is $10,503,720, which has increased by nearly $230,000.

Compensation for draft picks starts at just one third-round pick, all the way up to four first-round picks, which is a steep price to pay, but could be worth it for some of the league's best players. The full compensation ranges can be viewed below.

1,386,490 or less: Nothing

Over $1,386,490 to $2,100,742: Third round pick

Over $2,100,742 to $4,201,488: Second-round pick

Over $4,201,488 to $6,302,230: First round pick, third round pick

Over $6,302,230 to $8,402,975:

First round pick, second round pick, third round pick

Over $8,402,975 to $10,503,720:

Two first-round picks, second-round pick, third-round pick

Over $10,503,720: Four first round picks

Maybe that explains their problems.

And, I have heard some Leafs fans claiming Matthews is in the same class as McDavid.  Not even close.  Matthews may be (and I stress may be) good enough to carry McDavid's hockey bag to the rink.  McDavid is in a class of his own.  Have you watched him play lately?

5700 seats, Bad Behaviour clause, Can't paint the ice with their logo, 3 yr deal to play there

And still don't have a deal for an arena anywhere in Arizona ... 

Like you said, its time Bettman realized they don't want hockey in the desert

Pretty big news coming out today as Hockey Canada has settled a lawsuit with a female plaintiff who sued them over allegations she was sexually assaulted while intoxicated at an event in 2018 celebrating the WJC Hockey teams' gold medal that year. She discloses that 8 CHL players including players who were part of the WJC roster and current NHLers were part of that group. The NHL has announced they have received a copy of the report and are investigating the facts related to current NHLers. No player names were released but a number of current prominent NHLers were on that WJC roster that year, including Cale Makar, Carter Hart, Max Comtois, Drake Batherson, Robert Thomas, Jordan Kyrou, Jake Bean, Victor Mete, and the Habs' Kale Clague. No idea which players might have been named, but if any are found to have been involved, you'd think this is as bad or worse than what Logan Mailloux was found to have done. It could potentially lead to suspensions for some of these players down the line.

NHL statement on lawsuit against Hockey Canada and Canadian Hockey League

Doesn't mention anything about a settlement however. Your right,,,,sounds much worse then the Mailloux case.

Hockey Canada settling the lawsuit seems to indicate some degree of culpability, no?

Lol, yup.  I saw someone say that Matthews would likely break Gretzky's 92 goal record in the next couple of years.  There's a world of difference between 60 goals and 92.   Lemieux never broke it, Hull never did, Mogilny etc - I dont think that Matthews, as good of a player as he is, has a chance at that one.

Maybe. Its tough to say.  Could be that the evidence i hazy and they didnt want to drag this out. I suspect it means there's enough compelling facts that they assume at least part of it is true & want to avoid more press.
