Apparently, Chayka wanted to keep Tippett as the Coyotes coach, but Tippett and the owner hate each other's guts and could no longer work together.

The Coyotes situation is really interesting to rubberneck from the outside. A lot going on in a really short period of time - did the owner get mad and light a fire under Chayka's ass or something?

This was cute:

“The next coach? I’m 24 hours past Dave Tippett,” said Chayka. “He’s a tough guy to get over.”

They had some kind of ownership change a couple of weeks ago. I'm not super clear on it, but I gather the guy who owns the biggest piece now was only a minority shareholder in the team before. I'm assuming that caused a shift in the priorities Chayka was given.

With Teemu! Together as it should be.

I thought there was an automatic four-year wait after retiring? Teemu hasn't been retired four years yet.

I'm bummed out no one has volunteered to be a cheerleader/beta yet. I really want one.

What pairing are you thinking of writing for the HBB?

Re: Exchanges, fests, etc : Hockey BB

From: (Anonymous)
I don't like the way they are handling signups for betas. I'd like to sign up to handle a particular idea rather than being assigned or waiting for someone to find me.

This is mostly because there are a lot of things in this fandom I won't read.

Re: Exchanges, fests, etc : Hockey BB

From: (Anonymous)
Same here. There's a lot I wouldn't want to read either, possibly more than I would read. But if I could list a few pairings/ideas that I'd be interested in I'd definitely be up for it.

What exactly does a beta do though? I've never done it before and I get the impression it can go in a few different directions - like is it more copy editing and grammar or hockey fact checking or plot/characterization help or all of the above?

Re: Exchanges, fests, etc : Hockey BB

From: (Anonymous)
I'm not the mod, but I don't think they'd have a problem with you listing things you'd be open to reading.

Re: Exchanges, fests, etc : Hockey BB

da

All those, yeah, but at least for this challenge, I'll only be asking for grammar things. My usual beta doesn't do RPF, and I'm not super comfortable asking for much more from people I don't know.

(Which is part of why I'm not super thrilled about the beta requirement; I can write a good story without oversight, I promise! I don't want someone's first interaction with me to be me being squirrelly about concrit!)

Blues did not qualify Yakupov, so he'll be UFA. I've seen people talking about him and Vancouver.

Methot to the Stars for...a 2020 second round pick and the goalie they drafted in the 7th round this weekend: https://twitter.com/OvertimeScottB/status/879499406629908480

As a Stars fan, it literally feels like we just got Methot for nothing.

A 2nd is decent for Vegas I guess but far out enough that only they would care.

Can't remember the last time a prospect got traded that quickly.
