St. John’s-3°C Complete weather forecast
From all the comments it appears nobody reads your blog but I will comment anyway. Methinks you don't have a clue about sports/hockey/players who will become unrestricted free agents at the end of the year. Your theory is ludcriouus and holds no water not even moisture. ALL players play their guts out in the year prior to being an UFA, some fans would argue it's the only year some players care about. The reason is they (Ryder) can tell their team to stick it if they don't want to come back while having the rest of the league bid on their services at the end of the year. Or they could like you say put in a half hearted effort and risk not being offered a contract next year or a samller one at best. Yeah that's a good strategy!
