I’m experimenting with an idea that my colleague Stefen Rosner of NYI Hockey Now pioneered. He’s including a daily mailbag in his daily link stories. So last night, after the Golden Knight’s win, I asked you all what you thought about the win and if you had any questions.

Here were some of the replies.

@MikeLangeLV- “Not sure what the answer would be, and it’s probably really nuanced, but at what point do we just admit, “Hey… Maybe it really was just the injuries that derailed a potential Stanley Cup season last year?”

Response: We’ll never know what they could have done in the 2022 playoffs last season. I don’t think they could have beaten the Avalanche. But I think the extra motivation that the team has this season after they missed the playoffs last year has gone a long way. So maybe it’s a blessing in disguise.

@LibertyLumpia-Deep team! Go, Knights, Go!”

Response: Simple reply here, but I’m going to disagree with it slightly. While the VGK have been getting depth from all through the lineup, I still have concerns for the bottom six. The fourth line has been great, so that’s not the problem. It’s the Michael Amadio, Phil Kessel, Brett Howden line that I think needs work.

@MattJaxSIN21– “Who can help the 3rd line?”

Response: The only answer I can give you is Paul Cotter or Jake Leschyshyn. I expect the Golden Knights to trade Laurent Brossoit for cap room and then add a forward with the money. Not sure who.

Vegas Golden Knights

Toronto: The Golden Knights winning streak hit eight games with an overtime win against the Leafs.

Here are Vegas Hockey Now’s takeaways from the game. Did Shea Weber score an assist?

Vegas: Can Jack Eichel implement some of Patrice Bergeron’s game into his? Bruce Cassidy wants him to.

Henderson: Trade off? Laurent Brossoit is struggling in his conditioning stint with the Henderson Silver Knights. In his first game, he allowed five goals. In his second game, last night against the San Diego Gulls, he allowed four goals in the first period and was pulled.

We speculated a few days ago that if Brossoit got back to the NHL level, he could be traded for cap relief and a roster spot. It looks like the likelihood of that, for now, is being shot down. Matt Murray should also be returning soon for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Clip of the Day: I made a thing yesterday. If you’re unfamiliar with this meme format, children’s book author Michael Rosen is a very energetic and expressive fellow. So many people have memed him describing certain things. I took inspiration and did it with NHL teams. All opinions are my own.

NHL News and National Hockey Now

Edmonton: A very scary moment Tuesday night between Pat Maroon and Evander Kane. Maroon’s skate sliced Kane’s wrist by accident, and Kane rushed off the ice for medical treatment. Kane released a statement this morning stating that he is doing well and recovering and thanked both teams and the Oilers’ medical staff for their work during the incident. Best of wishes to Evander in his recovery.

Boston: Full coverage on the ongoing Mitchell Miller/Boston Bruins story is at Boston Hockey Now.

On the topic of controversial NHL prospects, Logan Mailloux is not cleared to play in the NHL either.

Florida: The Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes are still expected to play their game Wednesday night despite Tropical Storm Nicole moving towards Southwest Florida.

Philly: The Philadelphia Flyers rocked warmups Tuesday night with old-school Coperall pants.

Montreal: For the second straight game, a Montreal Canadiens forward has been thrown out of a game.

Minnesota: Kirill Kaprizov has been fined $5k for his shot at Drew Doughty.

Long Island: The New York Islanders are continuing to win games in dramatic fashion.

Losing Streaks: The Calgary Flames have lost six straight games, and the St. Louis blues eight.

Washington: Injury updates for the Washington Capitals.

LIKE I SAID A DAY OR SO AGO….TRADE BROSSOIT. THE TANDEM OF THOMPSON/HILL just keeps getting better. They don’t need the distraction of BROSSOIT in the mix especially when he’s playing poorly at the AHL LEVEL…..MAY BE THE AHL IS WHERE BROSSOIT BELONGS.

The GOLDEN KNIGHTS are LOOKING GOOD!!
As are NEW JERSEY and BOSTON!!
I am sure that NAZEM KADRI is wishing that he were traded to the DEVILS or the BRUINS right now!!
I am wondering how many hockey fans know that the original name of the LAS VEGAS hockey club was going to be: THE BLACK KNIGHTS??!!
The LEAFS are in TOUGH against the DEVILS tomorrow night!!
As a LEAF fan, I would be satisfied with just ONE point or even just a ONE GOAL LOSS!!
SURPRISE SURPRISE!!
The result was BETTER THAN EXPECTED!!!
If the LEAFS can beat the DEVILS they should be able to beat thew WILD!!

Almost 100% of NHL hockey players are millionaires ( I think that EVANDER KANE with his gambling problem is an exception).
I will be one in 2027 DESPITE:
ONLY a $420,000 lifetime gross income for 40 years (1987-2027)!!
Only about 60% of that is EARNED GROSS INCOME!!
NO INHERITANCE or LOTTERY VICTORIES!!
LESSON: Get an EXCELLENT financial planner EARLY!!!!
It would be interesting to point out that my lifetime gross income is what is 60% of what an NHL hockey player would make for just ONE year at minimum wage!!
The LEAFS are 10-5-5: NOT BAD but their OVERTIME record is AWFUL!!
They could EASILY be 12-5-3!!
A GREAT milestone for JOHN TAVARES!!
400 goals is like hitting 700 home runs in baseball!!
ALBERT PUJOLS from the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS would not be able to beat my 45:53 10KM run for males 230 pounds + BUT I could NOT even hit ONE home run in the MAJORS!!
I did hit about 15 home runs in SOFTBALL for the PURE TOUCH SERVICES (carpet and upholstery cleaning) for AUGUST of 1990 and 1991!!
I got the MVP both years!!
Sorry folks.
the PURE TOUCH SERVICES COMPANY in KITCHENER, ONTARIO.
A HAT TRICK OF DISALLOWED GOALS FOR ONE TEAM????!!!
This MUST be a FIRST!!!!!!!!!!
The LEAFS are now 2-1-2 against the THREE best teams in the league!!!
11-5-5 overall!!!
SUNDIN was GREAT!! SANDIN will be GREAT!! SYNDIN, SONDIN, SINDIN, SENDIN and SAINDIN will be GREAT later on!!!
MARNER: Just another FIVE games for consecutive points and he will have the record for most consecutive points for games for a MAPLE LEAF!!

THE FLORIDA PANTHERS.
THE ARIZONA COYOTES.
THE COLORADO AVALANCHE.
THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS.
THE UTAH JAZZ.
THE NEVADA GOLDEN KNIGHTS?????!!!!!

BORJE SALMING RIP.
How many people remember the sign at MAPLE LEAF GARDENS: BORJE WILL NEVER BORE YA!!??

I was a competitive runner and made the EXACT same mistake that ARIELLE did!
Unfortunately, I am suffering from permanent consequences.
I have modified my exercise program substantially.
Instead of 20 minute to two hour runs a day and one hour workouts in the gym, I am doing light weight lifting, running on the spot and exercises I learned at my retirement home for 33 minutes every day early in the morning.
I combine that with long walks.
I go get a MEDIUM ENDORPHIN HIGH rather than an EXTREME ENDORPHIN HIGH when I was competing.
I was a GUINEA PIG for a company that tried to cut costs for janitorial position for a VERY LARGE AREA.
MULTIPLE janitors should have been hired!
I developed SEVERE TENNIS ELBOW after 10 months of work.
ARIELLE used BENGAY (33% METHYL SALICYLATE) whereas I used KALAYA (11% METHYL SALICYLATE).
The directions were VAGUE!
DON’t USE THIS MEDICATION WITH A HEATING PAD should have been replaced with: DON’T APPLY BEFORE HEAVY EXERCISE!!
APPLY THE CREAM AFTER THE EXERCISE AND COOLING DOWN PERIOD!!

Now that the NFL CHARGERS have left SAN DIEGO, I believe that it makes more sense for the SHARKS to move from SAN JOSE to SAN DIEGO and join the PADRES!!
BTW, what about KANSAS CITY, PITTSBURGH, CINCINNATI and ST. LOUIS joining the NBA??!!
BOSTON in the NFL??!!
HOUSTON, MILWAUKEE, BALTIMORE, CINCINNATI and (rejoining) CLEVELAND and KANSAS CITY in the NHL??!!

JOHN TORTORELLA: AUGUST, 2020:
Toronto was GREAT!! We SUCKED!!
He should have same the same thing on NOVEMBER, 2, 2022!!
The FLYERS have a MORGAN that did NOT play.
The LEAFS have a MORGAN that DID play!
The FLYERS have a GOALIE that has a last name that starts with: SANS!
The LEAFS have a GOALIE that has a last name that starts with SAMS!!
SAMS won ALTHOUGH he was BRUTAL on the FLYER’S second goal!!
The FEMALE TENNIS PLAYER SAMSONOVA could have stopped that shot!!
TORTORELLA likes the word: SUCK(ED)!!
He used it quite often in an overtime loss to the BLUE JACKETS earlier this year!!!

Christopher Nowak BFA MLIS

Sorry. The LEAF goal net came off THREE times against the WILD-NOT TWO!!
RE: MAPLE LEAFS NOVEMBER 26, 2022:
It was nice to see CHRISTINA AGUILERA again!
I remember that she made her singing debut in 1992 at the STANLEY CUP finals.
She is a HOT blonde BUT NOT as hot as PAIGE SPIRANAC!!
DESMITH??!!
I wonder if there is anyone in the world with the last name of DEJONES??!!
A MALGIN and a MALKIN this night!
MALGIN wins this time!!
That would be like a JONES on one team and a JONAS on the other!!
MARNER: Just TWO more games to tie EDDIE and DARRYL: THREE more for the LEAF record for consecutive games with at least a point!!
Do it for BORJE MITCH!!
13-5-5 is MORE THAN JUST SOLID in mt books!!
GO LEAFS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

In a few days, it will be the 22nd anniversary of the BIGGEST COLLAPSE IN MAPLE LEAF HISTORY for ONE GAME!!!
The LEAFS led 5-0 after TWO periods and LOST the game 6-5 in OVERTIME against ST. LOUIS!!
I can ensure you that the LEAFS were NOT celebrating TIE DOMI’S HAT TRICK that night!!
Exactly a month later, 33 years ago, the LEAFS made their BIGGEST COMEBACK EVER for ONE GAME!
Down 6-1 against BOSTON, in the second period, they came back to win 7-6 on WENDEL CLARK’S OVERTIME GOAL!!

For TWO great athletes from the ARIZONA AREA: PAIGE SPIRANAC and AUSTON MATTHEWS:
BLUES FOR THE DESERTS OF WESTERN AMERICA!!:
