Dater’s Daily: Bo Byram French Toast Cup Meal, Carey Price Unlikely To Play This Season



NHL Trade, Avs trade, Carey price

Monday morning – never my favorite. Maybe not your favorite thing ever either. We enter the final week of August. This summer has gone fast. But that means hockey is getting closer. Let’s do some NHL notes, starting with the breakfast Bo Byram had the other day literally in the Stanley Cup:

  • That’s at least the second food item to have been consumed from the bowl of the Cup so far this summer. Jack Johnson’s kids ate ice cream from it earlier.
  • Nathan MacKinnon visited some veterans with the Cup yesterday too, a day after his parade in Halifax.

  • More bad news regarding Carey Price and the Montreal Canadiens. Real bad (Montreal Hockey Now)
  • Calgary native Cale Makar reached out to Nazem Kadri to offer any tips, insights, advice on his city (Calgary Hockey Now)
  • The Bruins and David Pastrnak haven’t talked in a good while. No doubt “Pasta” saw the digits splashed around this summer on Johnny Gaudreau and Matthew Tkachuk. But the winger doesn’t seem worried about a deal with the Boston Bruins.
  • It’s possible the career of Nicklas Backstrom in Washington is over (Washington Hockey Now)
  • Stefen Rosner on the New York Islanders’ fairly miserable summer so far (NYI Hockey Now)
  • I had coffee with Jake Schroeder yesterday. I can report he’s doing well and doing a lot of work for his non-profit, and spent a good amount of time in France recently.
  • Happy retirement to Charlotte Grahame. She worked in Avalanche administration and the front office from Day 1. She did a lot of great things for the Avalanche in her time there.

And to think, our local comment section “expert” wanted the Avalanche to go after Price (and Fleury) at the trade deadline last season…

I’d just like to remind you that I mentioned Price as an option as he had played for several weeks before the trade deadline. And of course, when a team compromises for a player, it has access to his health check before acquiring him while on my side, I do not have any information.

Who gives a s&*@# about Gary Price? Really…


Too bad for all the nostalgic Stastny lovers… Carolina has signed him.


Regarding Stastny and his signing with the “Canes: I think he burned a bridge with Sakic back in 2014 when he promised Sakic a “hometown discount” and then failed to do so and left to join the rival, Blues.
