I would be loath to give away a 1RP pick after 14 games. And, a GM would be down right stupid to do it (hence it never happens).
Garth Snow agrees with you - he only waited 13 games last year :lol:

Re: Another day, another Markstrom shutout

I guess he now holds the AHL record for longest shutout? No, the streak was broken the other night You do wonder how committed the Canucks are to Markstrom...he's been splitting the starts with Erikson. You would think the Comets would be riding the hot hand and perhaps rebuild his value up a bit.

Re: Which rookie(s) will make the team this year?

As for this season, having both Dorsett, who I am not enamoured by, and the even more useless Sestito taking up roster spots is odd enough, allowing Hansen, who I have always been a fan of, to enjoy an NTC is ludicrous. I'm not a "Corsi" guy but... It's interesting that the Rangers swapped 27 year ...

Re: Luongo and Schneider Revisited (or is it continued?)

.... But if you're working (playing hockey) in various US states and Canada like an NHL Player, you would pay taxes in both Canada and the US but receive a credit for taxes paid in the country you are a non-resident. So you may be a resident for tax purposes in the US and would declare your whole i...

Re: Luongo and Schneider Revisited (or is it continued?)

It wouldn't surprise me if it goes deeper than that. Because NHL players are not paid by the game, but rather bi-weekly payments spread over the course of the season, they are technically paid by the day. So if a team spends 3 days in city X, they could be liable for 3 days of taxation at that city...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

All conflicts of interest and joke LTIR aside, just the idea of having a dirty player like Pronger in the department of "player safety" is a joke. Hire a thief to catch a thief.... Having a guy who knows when a player is being sneaky dirty, vs when it's a hockey play gone bad is probably a good thi...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

I'm sorry to hear of your struggles, and I really wish I could help. But, since I don't live in BC, my tax dollars go elsewhere. Best of luck getting the funding you require. We are all Canucks. The Pronger deal is one of the most ridiculous things in professional sports. The man himself admits he'...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Maybe the CBA should be tweaked to have wording to handle this specific situation but there is no cap circumvention here. Nonsense! Why would the league want clear guidelines that can't be ignored unilaterally at it's own convenience? No, not nonsense. They could write a clause in to the CBA that a...
