I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.

  1. Score a Goal and off to Taxi squad you go. Good for Givani on his goal!!

    There must be a reason why Fil and Frans are not being sent to the Taxi squad. Maybe they meant took a Taxi , like to an airport.

    It appears that only the youngins go to Taxi Squad, Don’t want to PI$$ of a Vet.

    1. It’s a meaningless transaction. That’s why I call it a “paper move.” They’re moving bodies to the taxi squad so they don’t have to call up players from Grand Rapids. That’s all.

    1. Not this year. The taxi squad guys get NHL money. They just don’t count against the cap. If they are assigned to the AHL, then they are paid as such.
