The NHL Trade Deadline was accurately named for 2017, it was fairly dead. If you looked at the fan base of the New York Islanders, you would think that GM Garth Snow was dead as well seeing that he politely abstained from making a deal of any kind today. The Internet melted.
Nikita Nikitin made the news today. Something about him being a free agent defenseman, negotiating rights, and how he’s the missing Edmonton blue liner. Ok. With Dan Boyle politely declining to sign, the search is still on for a top-pairing defenseman.
So….HOW DID GARTH SCREW THIS UP NIKITIN WAS AVAILABLE OH MY GOD THE BAD FEELS!
The greatest story ever told happened during the 2000-01 preseason.
