    It opens another revenue stream for Ballmer, assuming he can book ancillary events at Intuit Dome. At Staples Center, he’s paying rent to AEG, which I’m sure he’s thrilled with.

    Certain Verizon Wireless plans include 1 year free of the Disney+ bundle. I wonder if you could just sign up for ESPN+ as a standalone just for the season and drop them after the season? I can‘t imagine there will be playoff games that stream only.

    Only the last 2 games are on linear TV, everything else is streaming. And isn’t Hulu+ required for live sports?

    The Canes hired Michael Futa as senior consultant to Waddell. Futa had been AGM with the Kings and his name was floated for the Canes GM position but he withdrew from consideration. His contract with the Kings was not renewed when it expired after the 2020 season.

    Leivo and Stepan are both on 1 year contracts. I figure Drury gets a year in Chicago to get used to the North American professional game and is the first center called up in case of injury, etc. Then the 4C job is his to lose next year.

    I figure Drury ends up in Chicago and Leivo/Lorentz will be the 13th forward. Leivo gives them another right shot in the lineup but he doesn’t kill penalties, at least he didn’t for Vancouver or Calgary. Lorentz doesn’t, or at least didn’t, kill penalties either.

    We know what Anson Carter brings and if we get anything useful from Gretzky, I’ll be shocked. But Tocchet as a recent retiree (unless he wants to coach again and won’t rock the boat) and Bissonnette give me hope that it won’t be a pablum-filled studio show. I always liked Panger on game...

    I think the prospects are starting to show up, I saw a tweet from Val d’Or wishing Robidas good luck. Training camp probably won’t open until the Prospects Tournament is complete, which isn’t until Sunday. The first preseason game is 9/28, so I’m guessing that camp will open Tuesday or...
