And to get premium faceoff guy who can play on your top PK unit, you pay a premium.

I very highly doubt Sam Gagne will be here next year. Might just move him for a 3rd or 4th pick but because of dressing room type rumors,
that's what I"d guess. I cannot confirm those rumors
Stop talkin outta your ass then.

Like the players (AR, JB), not so much the term. Seller dwellers pay a premium on Canada day.

However, if JB avoided trade clauses, I'm OK with it.

Don’t know anything about rumours, but in my opinion if these signing are designed to replace Gagner, Gaunce and Goldobin, the Canucks are further ahead.

I like Gaunce but they got to move out Granlund and Gagner. You gotta think Beagle and Roussel eliminate Archibald. I’m assuming Pettersson and Dahlen eliminate Goldobin. I’m still patient with Goldobin. If the kid could put it all together. Mottes in trouble. I like Leipsic

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

Well there is no denying that JB did.

Derek Ryan 3yrs for $3.123M

This shows me that Beagle and Rousel are paid market value.
