Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Here’s the chunk of interview that I found most interesting (the fact that Roberto is uncut may have been tops for some of you guys but that kind of shit doesn’t really turn my crank) . Transcribed by me, so you know it’s word for word, bang the fuck on. Radio dude (@ about 15:25 of interview link t...

Re: Wild agree to terms with Suter and Parise

Somewhere in the back of my scrambled brain there is a memory of succeeding years not being allowed to decrease by more than half of the previous years value. My understanding of the 50% rule (I believe it's actually called the "100% rule" for some reason) is that the salary can not be reduced from...

Re: Luongo will Waive NTC If Asked To

Aside from one horrid gaff late in Marty Brodeur's career (where he let in 2 goals in the last minute, or something to that effect), I honestly can't think of a single time where Roy or Brodeur let their teams down when it REALLY REALLY mattered most. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsiUJQVIV94 Sure...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

As Bob McKenzie pointed out on Twitter today, the Gomez buyout news doesn't make a lot of sense. They would save a bit of cash but they would still have a fairly large "dead" cap hit for the next 4 seasons ($3.5M, $4.5M, $1.7M, $1.7M). Burying Gomez in the AHL, a la Wade Redden, might make a lot of ...

Nope. AV has confirmed it is CS:

Edit - I do completely agree about the trade talk though. There is going to be plenty of time for that shit in the off-season.

Daniel Sedin is a game-time decision, but he's "looking good"

Re: GDT: Us @ LA: dhabums saves the season on CBC @ 7

So........... who starts in goal? As I'm sure most of you are as well, I am very eagerly anticipating the answer to that question. I'd say it is likely the biggest starting goaltender decision in the history of the franchise - not so much for the effect on the team's playoff success this year but f...
