i couldn’t find a thread for the upcoming season and i don’t want to post offseason moves for non-playoff teams in the playoff topic any more.
anyways, now that Treliving has walked, it’s looking more and more like the flameouts are cleaning house. and apparently some players made it clear in exit meetings that the environment is “untenable”.
I think you are correct. Treliving did the exit interviews and saw the players he considered the underpinnings of what he was building were ready to leave because of Sutter.
So he left a C of Red - faces that is and quit when he was still under contract to the end of June - leaving the club in a tight spot to try to replace him and get ready for free agency and the draft.
I know we went through that here in Edmonton. It was brutal. Great players running away and no one willing to come here except for premium money. It took McDavid, Draisaitl, Nurse, and more guys to turn that around - from rock bottom, so bad you knew they were going to loose that night in the first 5 minutes seasons.
Not fun…and we are not hearing more of the story because of the playoffs. I wonder if more upper management is chucking in the towel during the NHL news blackout,
4 way funding breakdown on 1.2 billion dollar plan
Calgary will contribute $537 million to fund development of the event centre, parking structure, an enclosed plaza and 25 per cent of the community rink.
CSEC will contribute $40 million upfront and $17 million per year, increasing one per cent each year, over 35 years. That money will go toward event centre costs, as well as parking, the enclosed plaza and 25 per cent of the community rink. It will also contribute $1.5 million per year to community sports.
The province will contribute $300 million to fund transportation improvements, land, infrastructure and site costs. It will also contribute $30 million to fund 50 per cent of the community rink.
4th partner is the Stampede board via a land swap
Timing is curious as a provincial election will start in 6 days. Buying some votes in Calgary.
No timeline to break ground… why am I not convinced this time?
