The last few hours have been extremely intense in the world of hockey. Draft, transactions, rumours, free agents… let’s say that the life of any employee of the sports media community who follows the activities of the Canadiens and the NHL has not been easy.
Luckily, some were there to lighten the mood on social media: top three the best tweet of the last hours in the world of hockey!
3. Less than three hours after the free agent market opened, Jaromir Jagr has tweeted to the GMs of the NHL that he was always free as air, eh eh.
NHL GMs- I am also free agent, once again. 6.3 265 … 50 years old ,slow, but strong and good hands. Can bring experience and like to play only home games. Call me anytime. 😉Also as the owner of hockey club In czech liga -I am looking to sign a Defenseman No jokes

“6’3, 265 lbs, 50, slow but strong and with good hands. I can bring experience and I would like to play only home games. Call me whenever you want. – Jaromir Jagr
The former NHL star ended his post on a more serious note by saying he was looking for a defenseman for his Czech team (of which he is the owner…and one of the players). If it ever interests you…
2. The, the manager of the Hurricanes Twitter account is (already) a legend. Do I need to remind you all tweet of the ducks in connection with Sebastian Aho and Jesperi Kotkaniemi?
Last night, while several teams published tweet with image to highlight the contribution of some players they had just lost via the free agent market, the Hurricanes were keen to highlight the departure… of the future considerations sent to the Golden Knights in thePacioretty exchange. Remember that in the end, Pacioretty (with Dylan Coghlan) was traded Knights to ducks in return for future considerations, i.e. nothing.
Your impact on the #Canes will never be forgotten.
Thank you ❤️ pic.twitter.com/rTQajh0er9

No, the Hurricanes never miss one!
1. the tweet which made me react the most was written by one of our readers: Mike Genois.
Seeing that the Golden Knights gave Pacioretty to the Golden Knights, Mike simply said that having known, Kent Hughes could have waited a bit and got his hands on Pacioretty instead of Dadonov, eh eh.
To have known… we could have gotten Pacioretty back from Weber instead of Dadonov!!
— Mike Genois (@MikeGenois) July 14, 2022
It was obviously a joke. The Canadian is already struggling to make fitter Dadonov on his payroll… and Pacioretty has a cap hit higher than Dadonov (by $2 million). Especially since Pacioretty has a no-trade clause and he will never return to play in Montreal…
Stay that in the end, seeing Pacioretty again in Montreal would have been… special!
The Golden Knights sacrificed top draft picks Nick Suzuki, Peyton Krebs, Alex Tuch, Max Pacioretty (eventually) and more to get Jack Eichel in their roster right now. Hopefully Eichel will make his first career playoff game soon…
Conversely, let’s say the Blackhawks – who are in mode reconstruction destruction for a few days – should have avoided Tweeter this this morning:

What did the Blackhawks want to tell us?
The answers under tweet are Something. The team’s supporters really aren’t buying into new GM Kyle Davidson’s project. Luke Richardson may have a very long winter…
The, the account manager Twitter of the Hawks should have kept a little embarrassment…
