...things that make you go hmmmnnn.

In 1971 J.P. Parise, a determined little ball of hate (just ask the Russian ref) in his day, played for the Minnesota North Stars.

His salary, for the season, was $29,000.00.

Next year his son will play for the Minnesota Wild as we all know.

His per game cap hit will have some numerical similarity to his fathers contract in that it will be $92,000.00.

His salary per game will be North of $145K, 5 times Daddys contract for 1971.

Freaky. I was born in 1971 and my first initials are J.P. ; and if you add the dates that my wife and first son were born on (19th and 10th respectively) you get 29..... and half of 92 is 46... the year my Mom was born :shock:

Duuuuude....
2011..... the one that got away.

We all do. Unfortunately I think when you slow things down you'll be able to pin point exactly where all of our hearts break....


Beauty buds! :lol:

But the reality is your Vancouver Canucks ain't exactly the Ralph Wiggums of hockey amirite? :wink:

There's a fair chance he chooses us, putting Nashville in the same situation Pittsburgh was with Staal.

If he does choose us he gets a Crosby-esque contract.

And Nashville gets something like Edler (provided he agrees to sign extension) + Ballard + Jensen/K-Con + 1st.

This top 4 would eat up most of our icetime forever:

Garrison - Weber
Hamhuis - Bieksa

Then sign/trade for a coupla solid 3rd-pairing vets, with physical dee Alberts and Sauve getting some games.

Dreaming yes, but I think Nashville trades Weber this summer to the team of his choice.

Here's a good article from USA Today from this morning bout dat dere:

... and wot I wrote last night. :wink:

Great minds, Tantie, great minds....

Mind ya, not a big leap for hardcore hockey minds, after witnessing the Staal drama unfold

.... to draw comparisons to Weber situation.

The USA Today scribe made a good point about how Nashville should first offer a Crosby-esque contract.

When he says 'no' ask him what his team of choice is and trade him there now.

Oh please God, let it be Vancouver!

Yup, they should go all in and lay all their cards on the table.

Poile should offer at the very least 10 years $80M. If Weber declines, time for a trade.

And enough of Weber being in shock/disbelief of Suter moving on, as he should have known deep down Suter will sign somewhere else.
Shock, Anger, Rejection, Acceptance, Help, Move on to Vancity! :thumbs: :thumbs:

Wild owner, Craig Leipold, went on record as saying that he thinks the salaries he has given to Suter and Parise are "too much". Says that the league needs to do something to fix this, "but that's for another day".

He's right. These athletes make WAY too much money just to play a game.

Gotta love the guy complaining about paying the two star players he signed too much. I'm sure they'll be in his good books the next 13 years.

They work incredibly hard and take huge risks to get to the point where they can earn what those guys got.

And frankly who cares what they earn, if they dont get it the team owners just put it in their pockets.

Oh I get that part. The whole sports/entertainment economic system is out to lunch.
