Actually it was, Brian moved servers (I think) in August 2004 and everyone had to re-register. I didn't know that. Thx for that bit of cc history. I have to admit, I've really admired his staying power over the last few years. I would've called it quits and demanded a trade long ago if I was him. I...

Good points level.... People just have to get over the high price of athletes. IMO they're all over paid. Having said that, salaries seem to be a lightning rod for the woes of the team or the rallying point to affirm in the fans mind why they have to diss a player. Salaries are a non issue with resp...

It's only money. And it ain't like it's ours. Speaking of money.....this leaves the Nux with 14 M and change. If rumours and wishes are real (not unlike the toothe fairy), that leaves 10M for Sundin and 4 M for Demitra. With Shannon, Brown, Rypien & McIver to sign as RFAs. More wheeling & dealing t...

While I would agree money wise, the impact IMO is bigger than the dollar issue. Did he do this on his own or with the assistance from his agent (who just happens to be Luongo's agent) ? For Gillis being a former agent, he had a similar incident with Lowe, if the player acted on his own. If he didn't...

I'm not liking this for a couple of reasons. Bernier's rep made a comment when he was hired about offer sheets: http://www.canada.com/theprovince/news/sports/canucks/story.html?id=70109b42-7a24-47dc-9f18-42e1a70a6bfc The key part : There were rumours Bernier would sign an offer sheet, but Lupien sai...

This is certainly an interesting developement.

Couple of thoughts. Bernier certainly has the option of signing.

So.....why did he ?

As for GM Gillis, what the hell ?

He also played the last 2 years with a guy named Gaborik.

whats the other word ? ;) Hehehe...good to see you got it. :lol: Noticed that Stajan signed a 2 year deal at 3.5 per year. Who cares, Toronto,right ? Salary. The other part of this "worth" issue.

What's desperate about shortening the length ? If anything this benefits the Nux if something causes Sundin (if he signs) to disappear after one year. (injury/retirement). A 2 year deal would mean he gets his second 10 M regardless. Anyone else notice the note at the bottom of this article ? Nolan t...

According to TSN the time frames are/were: players electing arbitration July 5 at 5 pm est and club elections July 6. This may have some bearing on who Gillis was targeting, as LiG suggests, no offers can be made once arbitration has been selected. I believe however, that teams can turn around a sig...

Very possible. This is a list of players currently under contract.
