In Topic: True cost of being a STH

11 July 2012 - 07:06 AM

That is like adding up thre cost of your gf. If you do it for love you don't add it up. Did you buy the sth tix as a business deal or as a fan?
That being said, sometimes you just can't afford to continue the commitment.

That's ok. We understand.

thats and awesome response. lol good one.

As some of you know, I createda little excel utility at the beginning of the year to keep track of my STH costs. This is how it turned out.

Made some money on games and lost on others. Took my GF to games for free here and there, sold some to friends for cheap etc. What it boils down to is 15 regular season games and 9 playoff games attended for a total cost of $1855. (Including beers,transportation, etc) Really not bad. It was however quite a commitment, and with my finances right now for the moment I've decided not to lay out the cash for nexy year, although that may change.

Its a part time job I pay to attend..

I'm thinking trade deadline. If Columbus improves, maybe Nash backs off his request...if the Blue Jackets still struggle, then maybe enough teams get involved where Columbus gets a little bidding war going as the deadline nears. That's a risk, in that Columbus might ultimately not get much more than they would right now, but it doesn't seem like anyone's willing to step up and offer much...what do they really have to lose? And sorry Nash, you signed the deal, YOU chose to stay with the Blue Jackets...suck it up.

yea but didnt he already also came out and said he wants out? I think Columbus wants him out.

True, I remember Nash telling the media that he was loyal and wanted to stay with the team that drafted him and paid him and helped him grow as a player. That's being tested now.

Parise also said he was a loyal. lol

As noted in the Alex Semin thread, I got a bit bored on the train, and my mind wandered thinking about a deal for Rick Nash. I'll do my best to avoid George Constanza-esque proposals to get Griffey and Bonds without having to give up all that much.

Before I begin though, my dream scenario is that the Rangers make a deal for Nash that includes one of their starting defenseman, preferably McDonough. Can you imagine them trying to last the whole season with three NHL caliber defensemen (they could get as high as five if Erixson and Wade Redden get called up).

Anyway, the deal I was thinking of was Greene/Tallinder, Josefson, this year's second and a first in either 2013-14 or 2014-15. One of Greene and Tallinder will likely be out the door anyway, so the two things I would lament on that front would be the fact that Lou gave Salvador that contract making one of them expendable and not knowing what else was out there (say trading one of them and Urbom/Gelinas for Sam Gagne).

So next year, the lineup looks like:

Kovy Henrique Nash
Elias Zajac Zubrus
Sykora Carter Clarkson
Gionta Bernier Harrold/Jannsen/Barch [Can Bernier, Barch, Gionta play center]

Fayne Tallinder/Greene
Zidlicky Larsson
Volchenkhov Salvador

I'm not that worried about Nash's contract. We were prepared to give much more to Parise, and you take off the money that we're not paying to one of the defenseman that's being traded and the pay raise that Josefson would be getting next year. The other requirement would be to lock up Zajac long term or trade him in a deal that includes a pretty good center.

I can't recall all of the proposed deals from other teams that have been rumored, but I think this is better than one of the rumored Ranger packages, which was McIllrath/Erixon, Dubinsky, JT Miller and a first. In my deal, they get two good NHL ready players -- one who has a lot potential in Josefson -- and an extra draft pick. The Ranger deal gets them an inconsistent but admittedly quality second/third line center who has more or less peaked (and rumored to have a drug problem), two prospects (I'm not that high on McIlrath who is injured anyway, Erixson will likely be good, JT Miller I know nothing about) and what Columbus will have to assume is a low first rounder. If necessary, the Devils could add one of Gelinas/Urbom/Tedenby.

All opinions welcome, just don't be a jerk about it.

RICK NAAAAASSSHHHH.... Section 233 supports RICK NASH!

Does Nash have an NMC or NTC?

Yes, but he wants out and willing to waive this.

Why would the Devils trade anyone when they could just sign Semin if they choose to.

Semin is going to penguins. 1 year deal. not confirmed yet.

In other words, you believe the price has dropped for Nash?

probably could be... Columbus asking too much...

fvck Parise. He bailed on us... He'll hear it from us Nov 11th

I don't care a damn about Oates. The only thing I'll miss about him is those awesome mob suits he wore every game.

The next assistant that runs the PP and we do not score a goal EVERY damn time, Im sure you'll hate him as well.
