“I’ll never forget our game in Toronto. The fans gave me a standing ovation during the introductions. I was representing my country and Canadian fans gave me a standing ovation. Sometimes hockey has no country.” - Börje Salming

Also in 32 Thoughts (of which there were only 12), Friedman repeats that Florida needs to trade someone to make room for Anthony Duclair. They’re in the same spot as the Leafs, except the Leafs have “managed” to stay injured all year. They need to clear $2.5 million but there aren’t many options to get there. Patric Hornqvist is one, but he has a modified no-trade clause of eight teams he can block. The other options are one of their two second pair defenders, which no competing team should want to do, or one of their many good forwards on good contracts. Cap hell.
I’ll take Duclair himself if they’re so desperate. I’m willing to trade Joey Anderson, who I’m pretty sure isn’t the next Mason Marchment.
