Yeah, no clue what's behind that offer but I wouldn't really consider it leverage because it's not exactly hard for them to offer him a better deal. I also don't think that Romanov is generally keen on continuing his career in Russia but that's pure conjecture on my part. If he returned to the KHL, however, that trade does look pretty bad for the Islanders :lol:

I wonder if there would be any repercussions on the Habs? Not sure, if something like this happened before?

Not that I know of, but my memory unfortunately isn't getting any better with age :D

I'm no lawyer but legally speaking they'd certainly have to somehow prove that the Habs knew beforehand, which in all likelihood is going to be difficult. Otherwise it's just the usual risk of doing business I suppose. Either way, I doubt it'll happen. Pretty sure Romanov is going to sign with the Islanders, it's not like he's been traded to some team in the middle of nowhere. NYC usually holds a lot of appeal for European players (even if it's technically "just" Long Island, that should be close enough).

Interesting tidbit from Pacioretty:
 

“I mentioned that at the end of the year that no one is really holding us accountable,” Pacioretty said. “If we have a bad year like this, the city would be half on fire in Montreal. Here in Vegas, it’s 80 degrees, and it’s sunny. We’re getting our car washed and getting our organic food, and going to play golf. I was kind of like, ‘we’ve got to police this thing a little better amongst each other.’ I don’t want to say it was a country club, but you have no one from the outside holding you accountable.”

While Pacioretty admitted the media and fan scrutiny of the Montreal Canadiens is, for lack of a better term, insane, he believes it made him a stronger person and better player.

He's not wrong.

Almost sounds like he misses the place. :lol:

I think that people that thrive under pressure or limelight probably do.  Im sure PK didnt like the trade to Nashville and we know guys like like Domi, Kovalev etc loved playing in a big hockey market.

actually i always thought Pacioretty was good at speaking his mind without calling out specific teammates.  He wanted to be a good leader, he just wasnt really cut from that cloth & the extra leadership sort of dragged down his play. He is the classic example of 'trying to do too much' imho.

Was that speaking his mind or whining?

I think he was whining that he would rather go to the AHL and actually play then stay in the NHL and ride the bench

Kind of like what Martin St. Louis did in Calgary, and, it worked out all right for him.

Hurricanes' Pacioretty to have surgery for torn Achilles; to miss six months

https://www.tsn.ca/carolina-hurricanes-max-pacioretty-torn-achilles-six-months-1.1834792

 

Ouch, poor Max. Pretty serious injury...especially given his age.

Ya, that might be it for him.  He'll be 34 when he is back in uniform.. Thats a tough injury to recover from at any age but even for "wolverine" it may be too much. I think the stats are that 30% of professional athletes who have Achilles surgery never return.   Now, im sure there's varying degrees of severity and types of Achilles Surgery, and I do wish Max the best, but this is tough news for him for sure.

Do we know how he suffered the injury?

According to the only source i could find online (A Raleigh newspaper):

"The hockey player suffered the injury in an off-ice workout on Tuesday at the Hurricane’s training facility in North Carolina."

Yeah we were talking about it yesterday in the 2023 draft thread because of implications it may have on the Florida UNPROTECTED 1st pick we got in the Chiarot deal ;) hehe.
