Re: Offseason grades so far

I just have to laugh at the posters who are proclaiming the rebuild to be finished on the heels of 22 wins in regulation. I just have to laugh at posters whom proclaim playing the lottery every time it's available to be played is a prudent way to build a winner. Who has proclaimed this? I think mos...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Sorry for trying to derail the conversation in a sad and misguided attempt to exact some form of revenge. Truth is I don't even know what reporting and roster bonuses are... or if they're included in the AAV. Fixed for truth and accuracy. :mex: :roll: The irony of you speaking about truth and accur...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

This Labanc contract in San Jose is weird - 17 goals, 39 assists, 56 points... ...and he signs for $1 million? Is Lebanc's contract full of bonuses? No, bonuses are only allowed on ELCs and 35+ contracts now. Other than signing, reporting and roster bonuses Obviously, in context, Mad and I were dis...

I want a peek into that alternate reality where they win that game 7 and actually beat boston in 2011. Does the dude still troll there or does that one extra win silence all the noise?

Good signing for you guys. :thumbs: Unconfirmed report: Today @ 3:29 PM ET Deal contains NMC in first 2 years then a Modified NTC in last 2 years. Also contains 2 million signing bonus.

Is Lebanc's contract full of bonuses? No, bonuses are only allowed on ELCs and 35+ contracts now. Other than signing, reporting and roster bonuses and in certain conditions where a player has played over 400 games, has been on LTIR 100 or more days in the most recent season and signs a one-year SPC.

Right, ship-jumping UFAs get overpaid, Tavares is overpaid...
So based on your above statement, Ericksson was overpaid when he initially signed in Vancouver. Glad you finally admit that.

Re: Canucks Contracts

Canucks could have traded for Luongo avoiding his retirement and allowing him to go on LTIR (which from the reports was what he had intended to go on but was convinced otherwise by the Panthers) . Would you mind linking to those "reports"? Here is one. I believe I also heard it listening to Sportsn...
