Dater’s Daily: Josh Manson Can Body Surf, Huberdeau Whopper Contract



Josh Manson

A good Friday to all. Another real scorcher in Denver today. Temps to hit 100. I definitely do not want to see my air conditioning bill for July and August. Let’s do some NHL notes, quotes, thoughts, flotsam and jetsam, starting with a video from the keeper of the Cup, Phil Pritchard, showing Josh Manson doing a little body surfing on his day with the Cup:

  • So, how about that Jonathan Huberdeau contract with the Flames? Eight years, $10.5 million per. His agent, Allan Walsh, hit a home run with that one. It’s the richest deal in Flames history (Calgary Hockey Now).
  • Makes you wonder what Nathan MacKinnon’s next extension with the Avalanche will look like. I’m going to go with eight years, $12 million per. So, $96 million total.
  • Colleague Dan Kingerski wants the Penguins to sign goalie Tristan Jarry, stat (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)
  • I watched “The Exorcist” for the first time ever last night. Very good, but I wasn’t too scared. My all-time top three scariest movies: 1. Jaws. 2. The Shining. 3. A very obscure movie called “When Michael Calls.”
  • The Detroit Red Wings hope they have landed a future NHL scoring star in Dimitri Buchelnikov.
  • A good response to a recent 20% off subscription sale. So, I’ll offer it here again: Want a $24.99 full-year price on a Colorado Hockey Now subscription, instead of $29.99? Use the promo code word 5off in the checkout box here to get the deal (checkout box)
  • Vegas: It’s clear the Vegas Golden Knights need some help on the wing.
  • Vladimir Tarasenko trade rumors persist (Hockey News)
  • Does Phil Kessel still have a future in the NHL? (Hockey News)
  • The future of the fan experience in the Metaverse (ESPN)

Have a pleasant Friday.
