Disagree - Steckel is as soft as Charmin - ask any Caps fan.


don't really care what caps fans think, he can kill penalties, win faceoffs, and play a solid 4th line center. that's his job.

He's big but will never use his size.


i don't think this is very important.

NJ lacks grit and we need more players who can bring the big body.


maybe so, but it usually comes at the expense of skill, especially in the case of someone like konopka, who took a ton of penalties last year. konopka's a good player for a bad team, but a bad player for a good team.

Steckel is a stiff.

Konopka took a lot penalties in defense of his team. You hit Tavares, he went after you.

That's the problem. We were the least penalized team in the league last season, I'd like to keep it that way.

This goes back to getting a guy who can get in the sh$t and crash the net. Konopka's not the only one willing to get down and dirty.
I know we have Parise but let's wait and see if the surgery will handicap his willingness to play down and dirty again.

So now this is a UFA thread too? I don't wanna shift through 15 unmarked pages of a thread to discuss a signing just because I wasn't online the second it happened. What the hell was wrong with doing it the old way?

There should be this thread for trades and trade speculation and another for UFA spec and other minor signings with the more notable ones having their own thread.

Well, for some clarity, I don't particularly like your end of the spectrum either, where every tiny happening around the league deserves a thread about it, a new thread talking about the thread about it, and a thread asking if the thread about the thread warranted a thread about it.

MB if you check my most recent post I made I merely SUGGESTED that:

1.) CONFIRMED NEW SIGNINGS should get there own thread (as myself and others have been doing) to discuss the deal and value and such.

and


2.)UFA Rumors, Speculation, and trade be looped in one thread.

I just thought it might be a little easier to sift through for 7/1 and leading up.
I agree that I get a little frustrated at the some of the newer folks who repost threads and create duplicates about things discussed or in discussion already. During the season or off-season no biggie - but on a high traffic day I think it becomees chaotic.

If you have an alternative suggestion go for it - I'm not in charge here - just trying to help. :noclue:

ERHOFF UPDATE:

Sure sounds like Christian Ehrhoff is close to being a Buffalo Sabre. Will update when it's confirmed.

No surprise there.

I just think the original post should constantly be editted like bullet points. So when you see its updated you just go to the first page to see what's happened and continue discussing normally

ERHOFF:

RealKyper Nick Kypreos
#Sabres will soon announce Ehroff deal. Keep in mind he turned
down big #Isles offer. It a deal believed to be between 5 -5.5M on
aav.

Rumors are saying 8 yrs/40 million, front-loaded, with a NMC.

I love that like it means something from Kypreos. It's probably a big deal coming from a goon like him whose only claim to fame is breaking his head open when Vandenbussche knocked him out.

Like him or not, he is usually very accurate.

If the Devils are even rumored to be getting *anyone*, I don't see why it would be a bad thing to have its own thread. I'm not complaining at/towards you, I'm just playing devils (haha pun) advocate.

Awaiting confirmation on this, but hearing Ehrhoff's deal in Buffalo is 10 years, $40 million. No clue yet on structure within that.

You have to understand the whole scope of the deal.

ITs either LONG TERM or BIG CASH/CAP HIT

BUF went with TERM (like we did w/Kovi) to keep the hit down.

I think this is a bad deal - is he a franchise player - no way.
I would take Jbou (27/28 yrs old) at his monster hit for 3 years anyday over this deal.
