HURRICANES OWNER TOOK THE DECISION

AUG 29, 2021  (20H29)      ALEXANDRE DESROSIERS
This is by far the story that is causing the most reaction in the hockey world lately, that offer sheet placed yesterday by the Carolina Hurricanes on young Canadiens center Jesperi Kotkaniemi!

When the latter added a $20 signing bonus, namely Sebastian Aho's number, we suspected that in addition to a hockey decision, the Canes were avenging a turd on their heart that they've had for the past year! According to Renaud Lavoie's sources, the idea of making this offer did not even come from Don Waddell, the general manager, but from Tom Dundon, the team's owner!

Mr. Dundon, who had just taken over the team when Marc Bergevin made the offer sheet on Aho, was certainly eager to return the favor to the Habs. If Bergevin's strategy at the time was based on Mr. Dundon's ability to pay the offer he had made (which included several signing bonuses in the first few months of the deal), the Canes' owner is betting on the Canadiens' ability to bring in such an offer under the cap and thus undo his salary scale within his forward group!

Would Tom Waddell have attempted such an offer if not for the pressure of his owner... No one knows, but one thing is certain, Mr. Dundon has a flair for the dramatic!
