Sounds like our old buddy Kassassian got his life turned around. Is a married man now with a little girl and is off to a great start. He keeps this up, he should get a good contract in the off season, prob similar to Ferkland. Good for him, always liked him.

On a different note, former Nuck tuff guy Donald Brashear is working @ Timmy H. @_@ I always thought he was better than Gino (skill wise and with fists), Gino was a better team guy though. For what it's worth, Brash looks good though. :D

NHL: Golden Knights' Zykov Suspended 20 Games.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW YORK (October 17, 2019) – Vegas Golden Knights forward Valentin Zykov has been suspended for 20 games, without pay, for violating the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the suspension is accompanied by mandatory referral to the NHL/NHLPA Program for Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health for evaluation and possible treatment.

The National Hockey League will have no further comment on this matter.
The team sent the following statement on Thursday morning:

“We were notified by the NHL and NHLPA that Valentin has violated the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. We monitor the nutrition, supplement intake, and overall diet of our athletes on a continual basis throughout our entire season. Valentin knowingly used a banned substance without the consent, recommendation or knowledge of our team. We support the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program and respect the decision here.”
Zykov sent the following statement:

“I’ve been informed that I am being suspended for 20 games under the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. While I haven’t been able to discover how I tested positive, I understand that I am responsible for what is in my body and will accept this penalty. I want to apologize to my family, my teammates, and the Golden Knights organization and fans. I will work hard during my suspension to ensure that I put myself in the best possible position to contribute to my team when my suspension is over.”

If there's "substance abuse" then there must be proper (and okay) use of substances, right?

Like, "wife abuse" = not okay, "wife" = okay.

Yeah Zykov didn't write/say that, sounds like a communications editor wrote this on his behalf lol.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Poor Biega, he was sent down too. Here he and his agent thought they had something worked out. I feel for the guy.

Always makes sense to compare RFA and UFA contracts. :thumbs:

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I don’t have some past history of constantly comparing UFA and RFA contracts as far as I’m aware.
Whatever helps you sleep at night though.
