Keith got 5 for something Bure got 0 for in those same playoffs.

Hell, guys are getting suspended left right and centre for plays Scott Stevens used to make once a week..

I'm laughing hard at all the folks who feign indignation at the Bruin's players, staff and fans reaction while steadfastly they defended Todd Bertuzzi.

Bunch of chumps.

No defending here. No sympathy for Moore, either, but Bertuzzi got what he deserved and may still get more in court.

Thing is, unlike Bertuzzi, I will be surprised if Thornton gets more than 10 games for something in the same ballpark as Bertuzzi's offence. This is Boston, after all.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Blues re-sign Alex Steen to 3 yrs X $5.8m = $17.4M.

Took a bit of a paycut to stay with the Blues. :o

I thought for sure he was going to go for the big bucks this offseason.

Hopefully Santo's re-signs in January!

I thought Steen would get a little less on a longer contract.

Seems fair enough I suppose.

Meanwhile back at the outhouse, things are piling up:

The last 4 years prior to this season, Steen's scored at a 25 goal / 56 point pace. That's pushing $5M on it's own when you consider he's excellent defensively.

So....really St. Louis is gambling $800K/ year that the scoring exploits of this year are not a total fluke.

If he regresses, it's only 3 years on a guy who isn't even 30 yet

So, to me I think it's a pretty good signing....with upside of being an excellent signing.

It doesn't take a seventh man to see how that would go wrong.

Edmonton trades Omark to Buffalo for a draft pick.

Conditional sixth round, if I heard right. That's pretty cheap.
He lead the Swiss league in scoring last year and now is in 4th place in the AHL with 29 points in 29 games, so it's not like he can't play hockey. Never really got a fair chance in Edmonton.

Small, slow, can't (won't) play defense, has cleared waivers in the past.. frankly I'm a little surprised he returned anything - although if he can't crack the Sabres lineup, he probably won't return anything.

One of their other guys meeting that description was injured last night and may be out for a bit. Timing is impeccable.

I don't think anyone on this group would not have supported Bert getting 20 games. But, the league basically threw him under the bus, by giving him the longest suspension in history. And they let the media blow what was a big deal into a "story of the century". If Orpik had a chipped vertebrate, would Thornton have been suspended the rest of this year, and all of next year too??

Yep. And someone will be dumb enough to offer him $4-$4.5M after this season. Hopefully it's Toronto.

Well when u have GMs willing to take on long term contracts at 4.2 million per in David Booth nothing surprises me, that being said we all know that MayRay's next contract will not come anywhere close to $4.5 million per. If he continues with his good play he will get somewhere around $2.5 million to $3 million per

If only David booth had MayRays skill set, on ice vision, phone booth stick handling, speed with the puck. Great passing, cycling, turn on a dime stick handling we'd have a player.
