Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins and the David Pastrnak camp continue to talk contract extension but by all accounts, they seem very far apart on money. If they can’t find common ground soon, could they agree to shelve talks until the offseason?

National Hockey Now

NYI: The New York Islanders are suddenly one of the hottest teams in the NHL after erasing a three-goal deficit to the Colorado. Avalanche and beating the defending Stanley Cup champions 5-4 Saturday.

PGH: Maybe signing head coach Mike Sullivan and aging veterans like Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin to long-term extensions wasn’t the best idea. The truth seems top be rearing its ugly head for the Pittsburgh Penguins as they’re headed home on a four-game losing streak.

PHI: The surprising Philadelphia Flyers showed guts again in storming back to force overtime with the Carolina Hurricanes but eventually lost 4-3 on Saturday.

WSH: T.J. Oshie is injured again, and so is defenseman John Carlson as the Washington Capitals paid the price for a 3-0 win over the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

FLA: Do yourself a favor and bet the OVER in every Florida Panthers-Ottawa Senators game this season. The Panthers took a back-and-forth affair 5-3 in Sunrise, Florida on Saturday in the battle of the Tkachuk’s.

DET: Has Lucas Raymond snapped out of his sophomore slump? It sure looked that way Saturday as he scored his first two goals and the only goals for the Detroit Red Wings in a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

DAL: The Dallas Stars lost goalie Jake Oettinger after two periods and fell apart in the third period and lost 6-3 to the New York Rangers on Saturday.

COL: Here’s the Colorado Avalanche perspective of their collapse on Long Island Saturday.

VGK: Vegas Golden Knights center William Karlsson is off to a great start this season.

SJS: San Jose Sharks defenseman Erik Karlsson is off to his best start after scoring two goals in a 4-3 Sharks loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Canada Hockey Now

MTL: Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield continued their torrid starts as the Montreal Canadiens out-gunned the St. Louis Blues for a 7-4 win.

CGY: Despite losing 3-2 to the Edmonton Oilers in the latest installment of the Battle Of Alberta, the Calgary Flames have backed up the preseason expectations so far.

Pasta not going anywhere. He will get paid

Rick W Murray

Pastrnak is acting like a spoiled brat him and his greedy agent are trying to put the squeeze on the bruins, If they cave in and pay him Connor Mcdavid money they are nuts. Pastrnak’s good but Mcdavid’s on entirely different level. No one including Leon is even close to this guy. Suck it in David you whiny ungrateful jerk and accept the 10.5 and move on!!! You might have to reduce the salary on your 50 servants sell one of your 4 houses, but suck it in and get to it! Fans are sick and tired of listening to… Read more »

I totally agree!! Calling Pastrnak a spoiled brat makes no sense..This is between Sweeney and Pasta’s agent..Pasta’s too busy racking up 17 points in just 9 games..He’s one spoiled brat I absolutely love!!

David Pastrnak is one of the top scorers in the league and is coming off a very team friendly contract that payed him a little over 6 million a season..His number[88] would make a fair signing in my opinion, 8 years 88 million averaging 11 per season..Just look at some of the contracts handed out in this league..Plus who said he wanted McDavid like contract?? Pasta’s best years are likely still ahead of him and IF Sweeney gambles and waits til summer to sign him, he could walk and Bruins would lose him for nothing..WW3 in Boston if that happens… Read more »
