Nice party, why wasn't I invited?!

Awesome. Thanks. Sorry for the outburst, just getting tired of all the negativity.

I can't handle it either.  I was told I was a part of the sunshine brigade in another thread. 

 

The problem would of course be that once Salvador is gone next year that they would look to replace him with a D of similar kind, or god forbid bring him back another year - well, that would be just awful.

 

 There's no chace that Salvador is still in the NHL after this contract is up.  I think he's going to be lucky to finish out this next season.  His body is wearing out about just as fast as his foot speed.  He's complained about his groin and foot injuries on break-up day.

The only thing I can think of at this point is to trade him to Buffalo for nothing a la Tallinder. There got 15 players under contract and $18 million to get to the floor. The Isles also need help getting to the floor.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

Isn't Bolland looking for some nutjob deal for like 6 years and 5-6 mil a year or something?

He's looking for a lot, and there's probably a good number of teams looking at him...and just the very thought of Lou thinking this team badly needs Dave Bolland is scaring me. Any GM that really wants Dave Bolland should scare that team's fanbase.

I don't think the Devils are interested in Bolland but who knows, that one is obviously going to be the worst contract of the off-season.

Dave Bolland is a nice 3rd liner and I wouldn't mind having him on my team... For like 2-3 years and 3 mil per. Tops. But if a GM gives him anything more than that, I'd say that GM needs a thorough psychological examination.

At the very least, the Bolland contract will be a gigantic win for the advanced stats community. Every GM and owner should be asking themselves "what happened?" when he is fvcking awful right away.

 

It was funny listening to Simmons and Dellow going at it on the radio today. If no one heard about it, they should search for it on twitter. As dumb as Simmons is, when you think about the buzz Bolland is creating and how little Gabrovski was getting last off-season, well more GMs are agreeing with Simmons and missing the point completely.

Good god some of you really think the worst of Lou.  If he wasn't going to give Clarkson a nutball contract last year he sure as shooting isn't giving it to another role player in Bolland this year.

I look at the fancy stats with a bit of skepticism, but this radio host is moronic to the point that it must be an act. The caller could have done himself a favor by saying how Clarkson's playoff success on 2012 paid off for the Leafs this year.

At the same time, is Bolland really creating a buzz, or is it just the Leafs being stupid again? I mean I've seen tweets that talk about a lot of interest from different teams in Mark Fayne, but nothing like that about Bolland.

All I am saying is we don't know. The past few seasons have been totally new for Lou. Reliance on free agency. Losing top players with no forward prospects to step in. How desperate does he get? He's never been someone to rely on the UFA market and so far not many have worked out. The Clowe contract still has the potential to be a disaster. What about trades? The Ruutu deal was a little desperate.

 

He is competitive to almost a fault. He will not let this team take a step back and sometimes pushing to go forward can hurt a team too. As for Clarkson, he probably had a nice number for him (way too much), but it wasn't what a few other teams were offering and definitely not in the years.

It won't be great but it won't sting as much as Parise, Clarkson etc. We're pretty solid on D.

Difficult situation, trading Fayne wouldn't have fetched much at all and as of now we don't have any room to re-sign him. It is what it is, we'll see what happens.
