No hockey, no Toronto Maple Leafs news, and no William Nylander extension makes brigstew something something...
After finishing the last of our pre-rankings pieces with a “Case For” Riley Stotts, we’re taking a break from the T25U25 series. We have Monday all set to start the main rankings with #25. So, there’s that at least.
I just want something... ANYTHING!... to break this boredom!

Bless you Capitals for giving such a hilariously bad deal to a comically large piece of shit. The best part is they’re not even that subtle about the fact that they’re going to buy him out before that contract is over. The worst part is that Wilson now makes even more money to pay fines when he inevitably cheap shots half the league.
The maximum allowable fine under the current CBA is $15k. That means that Tom Wilson can now afford 2068 of those bad boys over the next 6 years while still breaking even.— Dimitri Filipovic (@DimFilipovic) July 28, 2018

A big thank you to former Penn State goalie and current Toronto Maple Leafs prospect @Eamonthegoalie who has been working with our goalies at summer camp the past two days. The kids loved getting the chance to work with him and couldn't stop talking about him even after he left! pic.twitter.com/1GLLs3TKwj— Snider Hockey (@SniderHockey) July 27, 2018
Have a great weekend everyone!
