Havlat. I want to see if he has anything left in the tank.

In Topic: 13-Game Plans Released

I went ahead and went in on a multi seat 13 game plan with my folks. Having to pick and choose games is nice and gives you flexibility but the cost differential to selecting one at a time games as they come really is overstated. You'll pay markup for sure on the good games especially if the team plays well and you have to find a section you want.

I'm fine with my plan. I hope we do get a little sweetener though aside from just the same seats and the playoff priority.

Timing. Zajac's deal, IIRC, was the first contract announced out of the lockout, or at least the first major one. Dubinsky's contract comes at the end of Free Agent Frenzy.

Mantzas: If the cap is at $80 million, the Zajac deal is horrendous at its conclusion.

How so? Would like the rationale or hypothesis on this?

In Topic: Preds sign Volchenkov for 1 year/ $1mill

Volchenkov wasn't on Team Russia, Orpik was on Team USA. Orpik also has been playing more minutes. But yeah there isn't much evidence that Orpik is better. Just sucks to be born in the wrong country, that's all.

As for Volchenkov, I'll be hoping he does well in Nashville, it seems like a good fit.

Pretty sure Laviolette had some input in this signing as well.

Greene will be 33 the start of the season any extension kicks in. I wouldn't give him more than a 3 or 4 yr deal tops depending on AAV. He's been really good the last two years but he was pretty horrible a couple seasons too here. Overall he's an acceptable top pairing defender or a pretty good 2nd pairing guy at this point.

He'd be a nice bridge guy for the young guys to learn from and he can eat up some difficult minutes the next couple seasons. But I don't want us giving a 5 or 6 year deal and having another Salvador like anchor at the end of that deal.
