Well try telling your fans you have embarked on a 5 year rebuilding odyssey with no plan or guarantee of successes...didn't happen in HogTown ain't gonna happen in CowTown

Calagary = Tarrana West

I always said they shoulda made the trans Canada east bound only ....

I don't know about that. I think that with the new CBA and the reduced cap some of these UFA's will be willing to sign for less than one might think. Especially if, as HW pointed out, some of them are buyouts from other teams.

So players that would probably have gotten $5M might be signing short-term deals in the $3.5M-$4M range. This is just speculation on my part, obviously, but it does make for a less painful rebuild. Besides, if all that ownership said is make the playoffs, with a handful of UFA signings, that's easier than it might sound. I mean they just have to finish in the top 8, and who cares if they get bounced in round 1.....they're rebuilding.

Hey maybe that logic will hold for DeRoy and he sticks around awhile, I'll bet Higgins will offer to buy him all the steak dinners he can eat..

Just a question, can you buy out a player and then re-sign him to a lower contract? You take someone like Booth, who some people despise but management seems to still like, and buy him out almost with a new contract on the table. With the amount the guy makes off the buyout, depending on the new contract he may be persuaded to sign for lower dollars with the buyout money as a mitigating factor.

I know, but as usual you were very concise and to the point, so I elaborated just a bit for the people who still didn't quite get it.

Some times things are too obvious for some people to grasp.

Draft lottery has changed. No more percentage chance to win based upon finishing lower, no longer weighted. They all have an equal chance of winning the 1st round pick.

The lottery has changed, yes.

It's the first year all 14 clubs not qualifying for the Stanley Cup Playoffs (or the clubs holding their 1st pick) have a chance at winning the first selection.The likelihood of each team getting the first overall pick, from team worst, to 14th worst is (in %): 25.0, 18.8, 14.2, 10.7, 8.1, 6.2, 4.7, 3.6, 2.7, 2.1, 1.5, 1.1, 0.8, 0.5

I will roll on the ground and laugh my ass off if Calgary ends up with a pick outside of the top 5.

Ok....fine....I'll be in my recliner, but I digress on that.

Now if only the fates will conspire. :twisted:

You still can't drop more than a spot in the draft order, for what it's worth.

Just for shits and giggles if Baertschi is a top 5 pick exactly who the fuck does he bump out of the top 5 in such a strong draft. I have him at 11 in that draft.

Have a ganders through both of those threads. Great stuff.
