Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Also, the fact you claim he's an "ex-player" is false. If he was an "ex-player", he'd be retired. Surprise, surprise, you missed the point. He is "officially" a player but in reality he is an ex-player. Quit arguing semantics. No doctor will ever clear him to play. There is no chance of that. Maybe...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Was Luongo on LTIR and not counting against Fla/Van's cap? Was Florida in the playoffs? Are there salaries & a cap during the playoffs? These are questions you may want to reconcile before posting nonsense. The only non-sense here is how you figure the NHL can't hire an ex-player to do a job becaus...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Given Pronger is still under contract with the Flyers they would have to consent to this job with the NHL. No way they do so unless they are guaranteed no cap hit. That's collusion. Did the Panthers ask for salary cap relief when Luongo took a jobwith TSN durng the playoffs? Did Luongo have to reti...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Why is the NHL so willing to help the Flyers out on this? The only party the NHL is trying to help out is the NHL. They feel Pronger is the best man for the job. Any ex-player will have some kind of subconscious bias...collecting a cheque won't change that. The Flyers have a legal obligation to pay...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

[ Put it this way... if Pronger was 30 years old, do you not think he would've retired by now? Because he's a 35+ contract, and because the Flyers would get screwed by the cap, he hasn't retired. That's the only reason. If he can't play any longer, he should retire. Age has nothing to do with it. :...

Re: Trades and rumours (& fantasies) 2014-15

No reactions huh? This is a MASSIVE win for the Isles. They're definitely making the playoffs this year. Well...the trades were great from the standpoint that they added 2 legitimate NHL defensemen with nothing off their roster That said this is what the Isle depth chart looks like Travis Hamonic J...

Re: Around the league (signings, RFAs injuries)

Yo RD - what say you on this deal? $7.25 for a 50 - 60 point guy, and you think the Sedin's deal is bad???? The guy only had a handful more goals that Chris Higgins and one more goal than Nick Bonino last season...calling the Ryan deal a massive overpayment would be an understatement. Don't think y...

Re: Canucks Training Camp 2014 - News and Notes

Actually, Logan Couture's numbers (adjusted for GP) have indeed been trending down the past 2 seasons. Logan Couture points per game ranking: 2010-11 - 87th overall in league 2011-12 - 52nd overall in league 2012-13 - 60th overall in league 2013-14 - 44th overall in league I'd say he's trending up

Re: Kneecaps

And when the government loses their appeal, doesn't that mean they will (still) have to hire more teachers? I could be wrong but wasn't the courts ruling that any future contract negotiations around class size and composition would supercede the courts rulings....thus no more funding for teachers?

Re: Canucks select Jared McCann at #24

drafting in the NHL will always be a crap shoot Yet you're a believer in the "tank it" theory? Let me propose you this - are the chances of a team succeeding with a draft pick if said draft pick is a top 3 pick? Especially in a year - the 2015 draft class, that comes much ballyhooed as a very good ...
