Maybe he is waiting until Brodeur signs somewhere else...
I really hope Cory's a little more secure than that, particularly if he's getting a big-money long-term contract when he hasn't had a full season under his belt yet. Besides, if they wanted to sign Marty he'd be back already and they wouldn't have wasted a spot on Clemmensen when they already have two AHL goalies. They didn't sign any of the other decent backups either.
And honestly signing an extension a week or two after they can officially start talking would be rather quick. How often has that really happened? I get there's an urgency behind the Cory deal but still, they have three months before Lou's unofficial deadline.
For the record, if he did go to Sweden for a year or two does that put him closer to NHL UFA or is his FA clock frozen once he goes overseas? I mean if he's going to get peanuts here and hardly play I could hardly blame him for going over there, getting paid and playing especially if he can lop off RFA years.
Anyone going to try and get tickets? I'm going to see how low they go tomorrow afternoon and try to go...
I can't picture them getting much lower than this since face value of the tickets is 450+ anyway. They might even rally slightly upward. I really don't see them going dramatically below face considering how much people paid for them and how rare going to the Finals is for them.
I can think of many things I'd rather do with 400 bucks.
I really don't think we should celebrate a sweep much. More just say thank God it didn't happen and move on
It's not entirely about celebrating a sweep, it's an opportunity to see the Cup presentation. Although it'd probably somehow have to get in the 200's range for me to consider going though.
