... or perhaps schmucks such as yourself (no offense) don't see the value of a superior 200-foot game.

All I know is that for $6M the bucks are getting bent over the table.
Isn’t it the doe’s that usually get bent over?

WTF Reef are gay Deer really out there?

Whodathunkit?

Gay Deer are queer

Queer Eye for the Deer Guy

Are the guys that hunt these faggot Deer gay as well?

If you eat the gay Deer meat will you turn gay?

Lotsa questions and blobcat wants answers
Blobby is curious about these things... :wink:

Personally I think Hollywood stole Reefer's persona in order to create the Brick Tamland character.
There's a good chance of that.....I mean he does show up here of late with a level of ire that is akin to bringing a hand grenade to a street fight.

Todd Diamond; agent for both Granlund and Tryamkin, spoke on the radio (650am) this morning.
Basically said Nikita will honor his KHL contract then return to Canucks. Said that could change if there were some sort of problem with the team he is on. If that were the case, he would return to Canucks.

Was pretty honest on Granlund's situation.
Wants to stay in Vancouver, realizes he had a crap year.
Will sign a two or, if necessary, a one year show me contract.
(in other words, cheap).

Heard this stuff live when picking up my son from work.
Would put up a link but 650am isn't easy like 1040 was.

What ya mean.

I’m tunneling Trump 8-)

Just going through a couple things in the home front and no, there was no death of fish. Nor does it impact my wife or kids.

Anyways I will try and mind my manners more.

For the illustrious Pettersson, I'd want him with Eriksson and a big LW/C type on his left, start him on the 3rd line.
Why LE?

Because he is Swedish?
Yeah why not?

You see Reef some people come over here from overseas and it's nice for them to have someone who knows about their country and language etc, it helps them transition quicker into the North American culture.

Agreed to a point.

Helps him adjust but I assume Green will manage it. I want to see EP play with the best player who can help him develop.

Of course Granlund will sign a one year deal. He has no leverage. I read somewhere that he would likely get 1.5 a season. Severe overpayment if so. If he wants more than 1 million a season tell him to take a hike. I would be phoning to see if you can get a 4th or 5th rounder for him. What is the threshold where you can bury him in the minors and it doesn’t count against the cap? That’s what they need to be able to do with a borderline guy like Granlund

Well Eriksson is no slouch, he's a couple years removed from scoring 30 goals, and has scored 551 NHL points in 840 NHL games, dude has skill and has a vast amount of quality NHL experience, more importantly he plays a ultra reliable 200ft game and can penalty kill. I think playing with the Sedins stifled his career with those lofty expectations and Willie + Travis Green don't know how to coach him properly (not entirely their fault as both are rookie NHL bench bosses).

By all accounts Loui is a quality linemate to start your NHL career.

I'd be fine with 1.5M. He's a versatile depth guy that could take a regular third line shift when the injuries hit.

Elmer needs to start lowballing guys instead of bending over in every contract negotiation. In a vacuum Granlund is fine getting 1.5. Then you add in a half dozen other guys who are overpaid and it doesn’t take long to throw the whole payroll out of whack.

More of your Vancouver Canucks are underpaid than overpaid Mr Negative.

I especially love the Horvat/Tanev extensions.

Lot's of cap room for the new core moving forward, there's no problem here...
