you could have offered me a million dollars and given me two days to name the canes coach and i wouldn't have come up with bill peters. flames were indeed enamored enough with 137-138 record to lure him to calgary.

Evander Kane is about to re-sign with the Sharks for somewhere around 7/$49M, which also means San Jose's 2019 1st-rd pick goes to Buffalo
