Re: There will be a strike

I guess it's designed to make themselves look good to the fans, but honestly, why would the players want to play 82 games at this point? The players want to play an 82 game schedule because then they get their full salary. There will be no way to get all the games in past that point so they start l...

Re: There will be a strike

Haven't the owners effectively backed themselves into a corner by putting a Nov 2nd deadline for a 82 game schedule? Speaking strictly from a negotiation standpoint, I'm not sure making that announcement makes a lot of sense. I guess it's designed to make themselves look good to the fans, but honest...

Re: Shea Weber Accepts Offer Sheet from Phi (14 Years, 100 M

Another player seriously fell for the Flyers NMC gentlemans agreement? They should talk to Richards and Carter about what that gentlemans agreement is worth. It's worth even less if there is no clause at all in the contract at any time (Richards and Carter were a week from having the clauses kick i...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

What a huge risk by the Flyers, if the Predators match and the Flyers can't make something else happen their offseason is looking like a huge failure. Huge risk by Weber too, if he wants out of Nashville; what if they keep him and ice a cap floor roster until the big money years pass? He'll have ri...

Re: Shea Weber Accepts Offer Sheet from Phi (14 Years, 100 M

I think the fact that he signed that tells everyone that he doesn't want to stay in Nashville. Question..... If Nashville matches do they secure him for the entire 14 years or do they only have to honor the salary hit for one season and he can go UFA? I wish Gillis had had the stones to pull the tr...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

You're not calculating compensation properly. It's total salary divided by term, or five, whatever is lower.

So compensation is 4 first rounders on that deal.

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger Nashville was working on a trade and its believed several deadlines passed before Flyers grew tired of waiting. Weber signed offer sheet. I'm told a number of teams were in on a possible Shea Weber trade. If Preds don't match, they receive 4- 1st round picks as compensa...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

The description of his goaltending style, "Drop to your knees, close your eyes, and hope that the puck hits you" was classic Luongo. I'm going to miss this guy.

Re: NHL sends CBA termination notice!

It's interesting to note that the proposal seems to be geared towards the have-not teams. Also, what's missing from this, that has been mentioned in the past, is anything to help facilitate trading bad contracts (I believe Burke was one of the proponents of this). I won't be surprised if some sort o...
