Nobody would have batted an eye if he earned 1.5 million for Vancouver. Same with Gudbranson. That’s a fair salary for both of those guys.

Would you rather Calvin De Haan at 4 years $4,550,000 or Luca Sbisa at $1.5?

Depends on the team I guess.

For this club that has hopefully Juolevi and Hughes firming that spot up.... maybe not. Do we need a DeHaan long term? Maybe if you flip Edler... DeHaan is a decent #4. Question or questions you might have want to ask are different I think. Like would you rather have Sbisa at one year at 1.5 on the Canucks or Dudbranson at a three year theft at 4 annually? ’d take Sbisa. Or maybe you meant to ask if the Dubdranson contract was comparable to DeHaans? In which case I’d take DeHaans deal.

If I was an Islanders fan I’d probably let DeHaan walk for the cash too. They are going going young and don’t need to puke money away on long term deals on veteran D when they have a few there already like Leddy and Boychuck.

The DRIVE FOR FIVE
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

vegas signs theodore 7 years.
Theodore has signed a 7-year contract worth an AAV of $5.2M
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

MS fave Shinkaruk put on waivers by Montreal. :shock:

And Zach Smith on waivers.
Matt Duchene on Zack Smith being placed on waivers “I’ll be honest, it’s a kick in the balls for us."

Maybe Loui Eriksson could fill the void in Anaheim

Panthers don't have no Tom Wilson to protect their stars.
They have Haley. He’d punch the piss out of Wilson or Domi
Luongo/Panthers pissed about that domi punch still..
Roberto Luongo: -There will be a point in time where that will be addressed (Domi Punch) guys in the locker room were really upset about it, we’re not a team to forget about something like that

I am almost hoping that someone "Tonya Harding's" him. Almost.

These Canucks, yes - I'm assuming you're old enough to remember what happened when Naslund got a cheap shot.
