I haven't heard anything about 9 or 72 in a long time.
My speculation is who is on the opening night roster?
I'm leaning toward Bob. But I can argue all four:
- Bob becomes hard to deal with and we trade him for "good" return, but the Bread market is expected to heat up as a rental.
- Panarin is dealt by Sep 13, but While Bob hasn't signed, he's still on the team.
- Jarmo decides to go for it and might trade them at the deadline
- The least likely, but could happen
It's been a really long summer!
Drop the puck, fatboy!
