    Summary

    Fuck it, Carts has texted, offer still open?

    Mike swallows. Door’s unlocked.

    There’s no response, but a few hours later, there’s an email in Mike’s inbox with the itinerary for a flight from LA in two days. No return trip.

    Or,

    Jeff's reaction to a life crisis is still a good sulk and Mike would still rather be a hermit at his lake with no one but Jeff and his dog, but they aren't the same people they were ten years ago. And maybe that's a good thing.

    "Yeah," he said. "This sucked." There were some ironic cheers. "So let's end it the best we can," Eric continued. "The Annual Hurricanes Summer Barbecue. My place. Tuesday. Be there. Bring beer. Bring your kids. Don't bring the season with you."

    Summary

    To make matters a little worse, when they see a few of the guys in the lobby, Matt fakes a yawn, stretching his arms over his head. The Hanifin printed across his back is blindly clear.

    Summary

    Leon expects a snarky, asshat response from Tkachuk. Instead, he listens to Tkachuk over footage of himself playing with his mouth open in shock.

    “I think he’s a great player.” Tkachuk tells the interviewer. “I think he’s, uh, having a great year. I think both of them together is a really great one-two punch, but as for the other question I probably can’t answer that, though, he’ll get mad at me.”

    Summary

    "Do you think I did it on purpose?”

    Matt wants to know the answer, maybe more than anything else he’s here to do. It doesn’t change anything about the past. He still wants to know.

    Leon sighs just loudly enough that Matt can hear it across the space between them. “Welcome to Berlin, Matt.”

    Or: Matt ships himself over to Germany at the end of a cupless career with the Flames and winds up with his ex as his coach. They both figure out how to handle it.
