It's been asked already but...
How in the fuck do they fit all of that under the salary cap!?
I mean seriously, do they got a LTIR Faerie too?

They've had millions in space all year long which means they can add triple that space in prorated cap hit right now (quadruple by the deadline).

Thats perfect he went to the Pens. Boston had a tough day yesterday, lost Iginla and blew a game against the habs,looks good on the f-----ing bums.

The only thing that comes to mind regarding what the Flames got in return for Iginla - GILLIS IS FUCKED

Shit, with Luongo only 2 years younger than Iginla and on a fucking ridiculous contract that Mikey signed him too, we'd be lucky to get a 2nd round pick for Lou.

Shit, the Stars got a better return on Morrow than the Flames did on Iginla. Joe Morrow is a solid prospect. I believe he was the Pens best prospect, or top 2 at least.

Holy shit talk about a one track mind...

The REASON Feaster got what he did was precisely because Ignla is a UFA and not under contract long term like Luongo.

Oh shit, forgot the UFA thingy. I guess that is why we'd get fuck all for Raymond and Higgins at the Deadline. BTW, weren't you championing trading Raymond and Higgins at the Deadline?

I got shit loads more of where that came from my good man. But, IMO the real comedy will be what Gillis gets in return for Lou. I can't wait, howbouts you EPC?

Not much help from the out of town scoreboard lately. Minnesota tied up their game against Phonix with 55 seconds left and won in overtime. Anaheim did lose though. A few Anaheim losses here could make catching them for the 2 spot more likely.

In fact I was suggesting signing or extending mayray and then trading him.
I said nothing about trading either Higgins at all or Raymond at the deadline.

Pretty much what Burke was telling Gillis just prior to the lockout.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

You don't even hear rumours about Luongo anymore. There's just nowhere for him to be traded too. He's under contract until he's 43. Ridiculous.

Do Gillis and his Band of Gaylords ever take the 2 minute car ride to Pacific Coliseum to scout the Giants? Why the fuck do they keep passing up on backyard prospects like Lucic and Gallagher is beyond me. Who the hell is running the show at the Orca Bay confines? Anybody?

Speaking of the Giants, looks like they is about to draft the next big WHL star in this Benson kid. Apparently the kid is so good that he will enter the Dub a year earlier than the norm. But Gillis and his merry men wouldn't know that.

Lots of rumors he is going to the Leafs.

Makes sense given the they are likely going to the playoffs and the Canucks are even more desperate for a center.

If that happens it's probably a crap deal for the Canucks though.
