Reading the Cryers board on HF is chicken soup for the soul.. Drink up



They're psychotic and crazed, they now think Holmgren should offer sheet the rest of the RFA class this year..

on the same topic... Do you think let's say Zach would have signed an offer sheet last summer before arbitration with Minny that Lou would have matched it ? lets say the same contract that he signed this year?

i really don't know personally (ownership situation asides of course... lets say the money was there)


With Minnesota? I wouldn't match it.

Agreed. Money aside, his cap hit is probably 1-1.5 million more than it should be. Plus Minnesota tends to pick in the top 10 often lol

I'm happy that Nashville is able to keep him but I hope that doesn't kill their cap flexibility for the next few years. Thrilled that the Devils won't have to be facing him in Philly though!

I wonder if Weber would try to force a trade in a year or two if he is unhappy with the situation in Nashville?

I'm sure the Rangers are already hatching up a plan

One one hand the Pred have cap room. On the other, they have five d-men and no first line.


Exactly. Even with cap room they are too small a market to spend towards the ceiling. It would not be profitable.
Letting Suter walk was ok, as he not close to the talent of Weber. Trotz is a great coach and they are strong at Center and Goaltending, so I can see them making the playoffs, but beyond they are going to have to pray to Odin that the kids upfront can perform.

I was wrong to ever doubt the powers of Lou Lamoriello.
IN LOU WE TRUST @Manta04

Curious to hear what Weber has to say today on the conference call as his agent was speaking last week like he was already a Flyer. Perhaps Shea should reenact the Zetterberg incident on his agent for running his mouth prematurely.
