Glad we can continue our 20+ year streak of not worrying about goaltending.

Agreed.  This is nice :)

I don't get it, why are Urbom and Tedenby playing overseas next year?   Tedenby baffles me the most considering this guy's been in the organization for quite a while now and still hasn't made the big club.  Either sh!t or get off the pot.

Can someone explain to me the Lightning/Gagner trades. Is their money-saving issues going on here? TB basically traded Purcell and Crombeen for a sixth round draft pick.

There was speculation Yzerman was going to buy out Purcell. That would have been a $1.5M hit on the Lightning's cap for the next four years because they have no compliance buyouts remaining. So instead of buying out Purcell and taking the hit, Yzerman got an asset for him at the end of the day, albeit a small one. Tampa will take a $1.6M charge from Gagner's contract for the next two years only and now Crombeen's $1.15M is off Tampa's cap this season.

The move ends up saving Yzerman $1.05M in space than if he had just bought out Purcell. Nate Thompson also got traded to Anaheim, so that's another $1.6M freed up.

This is awesome.  Keeps him on the cheap for another year because I have no doubt he's going to become a pretty solid NHLer, once given a full and fair chance.

Crazy numbers, crazy GMs and crazy agents all over the NHL. Dave Bolland, a 3rd liner on his best day is apparently seeking 7-8 years at $5mill per according to Bobo. Leafs countering at 6 years and $4.25 million.

Dave fvcking Bolland!?!?!

Someone please sign him before Lou can.

I hear you to some extent, but it's called inflation bro. Every player is asking (and getting) more, right down to the lowest paid guy in the league. I think it's sh!tty, but it's nothing new, and its happening in all sports (and frankly, all industries)
