Someone has to clean up all the shit that KTurtle starts. Sure as hell Johnny Hokey and Sean Mono won't be diving into the fray.
I though that was Lucic's job, Carl. Has Milan said he's not interested in earning his $6 mil? Generally Gudbranson can handle himself but he didn't do much in the way of enforcement for the Canucks, he was absent when Pettersen was getting cheap shotted in his rookie season.

Winger Brady Tkachuk has signed a seven-year, $57.5-million deal with the Ottawa Senators, the team announced Thursday.

I didn't think the Sens would be able to sign Brady.

I wonder if that will spur Matt and the Flames to sign. I think the big hold up with anything happening in Calgary, including their lack of making any significant deals over the summer, is that they are waiting on something to happen with Eichel. I really hope they don't get him, as I think the team that finally acquires Eichel will have massively overpaid for him, and there is a good chance that he will not be as good after surgery.

Sounds like the met in the middle ground in terms of money.

Sens offered $8 on a long term and the Tkachuks were rumoured to be asking for north of $8.5 in negotiations.

They will be an exciting teams for years to come with their top picks becoming the core, much like the Canucks.

Still can't get over our "fans" ripping JB over our RFA signings. This is how contract negotiations work these days with your top players. The prospect of missing games in the regular season gets them to finally negotiate and give a little to get it done.

At the end of the day, it was never that far apart. So why does it take so long?

What a disgusting display of intentional tanking the Coyotes are. The League should throw the book at them. It would be a shame to see any of Wright, Lambert, Bedard, Michkov, Fantilli end up in that shit show

Agreed, Benning did fine with those deals. The Leaves messed up the market when Dubas got bent over by Matthews and Marner and now the whole league is paying for it.

Will the Coyotes win a game this season?

I see that Barrett Hayton wasn’t in the starting lineup?

Charlie McAvoy just got 8 x $9.5M :shock: :shock:

$76M seems a bit too much for him. Guys like Makar and Heiskenen are definitely a notch above. I think those contracts will age well. Not sure about McAvoy's... but likely still better than what Nurse or Seth Jones contracts will look like in a few years.

Damn, we got great value for Quinn.

We really did. McAvoy isn't as dynamic with the skating but he's got the heavy man's game that Quinn really can't. None the less. we did lock up Hughes for a long time which shows how much he want's to be here.

Huge head-to-head match-up early this morning in what many expected to be the Fight for Wright between Arizona and Buffalo. In their first games Arizona was pounded by Columbus, and Buffalo shocked Montreal. So it looks like Buffalo may be more real than most people expected (or the Habs may really suck without Price?). Today’s match-up (if you don’t nod off) could really tell the tale of the tank. Win or lose this is Loui’s time to shine!

I was surprised they didn’t give him the Capitancy to motivate the team for this run.
