What is “Robidas Island”?

On Wednesday, it was announced by the Toronto Maple Leafs that Matt Murray and his whole $4.867 million cap hit would be placed on LTIR, essentially meaning it won’t count against the Leafs cap hit in the coming 2023-2024 season (It’s a little more complicated than that, but for the sake of ease, that’s what […]

Oilers: What Can Brown Do For You?
