I've heard the deal isn't for 10 mill per, its a 5 mill signing bonus, 5 mill per season & then 5 mill to be paid out at the end of the term. Not sure if this makes any difference in the CBA or not. If its just seen as 10 mill per then I don't see whats the point of making the offer spread out like...

Isn't this the guy who thought the Sedins were some cartoon characters...?

Thanx Clam. Too much draft on ...

This is interesting.

Nothing on the Nuck UFA's as yet.

Rolston & Naslund have similar numbers over the last 3 years (salary aside).

Both are 34.

With Rolston signing at 5M, any chance Naslund comes back at 2.5 ?

Yeah, I read it too. Then I went to the CBA and looked up the comp Compensation is relative to the salary cap, the CBA was written in 2005 when the cap was $39M. It is just a 2nd round pick. Thanx. I see in the Province they have it updated also. http://www.canada.com/theprovince/news/story.html?id...

If the offer sheet is for 7.5 over 3 years, the cost is a 1st AND 3rd round. (based on the avg salary).

Offer sheet over 2 M to 3 M. Comp is first & third.

Hmmm...how different is this from the year the Nux brought in another aging leader in hopes of turning around a franchise ? If this is Gillis' idea of a bold move, I'm shaking my head. Can this be the piece that solidifies Naslund coming back and the return of Bertuzzi ? This isn't "going forward" I...

To be fair, it's only been 2 hours. If, and I don't pretend to know what's involved with the administration side of this day, much of the lead in to obtaining a player does not include actually speaking to agents/players until the 9 o'clock gun, little can be done until that conversation takes place...

I think that's Lowe's reasoning as well.

For as much hype Pitkanen had, he has now been traded twice in 2 years.

i don't know cole well, but there does seem to be a big question mark about injuries... but, from our perspective, there's another concern: is this one more trade that gillis couldn't do b/c of inexperience, or being out-maneuvered by lowe? or was gillis going after williams, and didn't want to set...

Tough call....few players left and 30 teams in the hunt. Will it come down to cash only or the best fit (for players wanting to come here) ? Kinda like the direction that Lowe has taken so far. Certainly things haven't changed for the Nux. Once the main piece of the puzzle is in place, the rest may ...
