2015 NHL Off-season Thread


Recommended Posts

That's good and all, unless we miss out on Tlusty and he goes to tryout somewhere else in our division, like Pittsburgh, NYI, or Columbus. If that happens, I will have preferred he offered a fair but limited one year contract; we have nothing to lose really. It's pretty clear by now Tlusty doesn't want a PTO and I don't blame him.

 

Well it happened with Stralman and he didnt really hurt us too bad

I'm not going to watch highlights - I'm going to just tell you that Lundqvist saves a higher percentage of first shots than he does rebounds.   http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/introducing-the-shot-qu

Chicago will sign Mike Richards to replace Brad Richards and he'll have the game winning goal to clinch the Stanley Cup next June for the Hawks. You heard it here first.

The money is just shifting from over 30 UFA monster deals to young players who have a chance to living up to the contract. Think the league is in better shape this way.

According to McKenzie a couple of teams are kicking the tires on an offersheet for Huberdeau.  I suppose a "why not" attempt to get him to sign an offer sheet with an AAV of $3.6 million would be worth it.  Anything above that though involves next year's first round pick, which the Devils cannot give up.

I can't imagine Florida not matching anything in that range.

Tax write off and an amazing ass kissing performance to get the "C" lol

 

Can't a guy be a nice guy?  I mean he just said he's giving 10 MILLION DOLLARS to a charity and it has to be about a tax write off and trying to get a captaincy?  He was probably gonna get it anyway but we don't have to cheapen a great gesture to making the community better.

 

Great on Subban.  This was a young guy that was widely considered a problem person and seems to have turned it around.  Much better of a guy than what a lot of asked around here to trade for that uses his money to keep possibly a possibly accosted woman quiet who was drafted the same year.

A $10 million dollar donation is nothing but beyond generous . 1 million would have been impressive for a hockey player. The guy just gave away about 15% of his current contract.

It's $10 million CDN though. Cheapskate. [emoji14]

Seriously though, PK Subban is awesome. They don't make many like that guy anymore.

So it's only $7.6 million US.  lol

 

Seriously, truly an awesome gesture on his part.  Truly giving back.

Bill Cosby donated $20 millions to Spelman College in Atlanta at some point... what an amazing human being lol

If in 30 years we find out PK Subban has been a sociopathic serial rapist for the better part of his existence, then feel free to get back to me. [emoji57]

haha i dont think its gonna be the case. I'm just getting really really really sick of hearing that im somehow not "allowed" to hate him just cause he donated $10 millions to sick kids. Sure it's generous and great and Im glad he did it. Im super happy for the kids just as im super happy for the education the kids got in Atlanta... That doesn't mean i HAVE to like those guys.

Hate him all you want man, if Lundqvist did the same thing I'd still hate him (in the hockey sense), but I'd acknowledge what an admirable and generous act it is to donate that kind of money to such a worthy cause.

Also seems that Subban gives his time to this Children's Hospital and for that I applaud him.

And speaking of Lou- @FriedgeHNIC: TOR announces it has traded for Michael Grabner

@FriedgeHNIC: In exchange: Taylor Beck, Carter Verhaeghe, Matt Finn, Tom Nilsson and Christopher Gibson

So the Leafs got Grabner for a pile of junk basically.

 

Well see Grabner not in our division and not playing us 5-6 times a year anymore right there is taking away about... 10-15 breakaways against us per season

I think there might be some hope for Matt Finn who put up Severson like numbers in junior.  Didn't seem to be that impressive in his first year in the AHL though.

@simmonssteve: Leafs have become the first NHL team to have pushed the team broadcasters off the team charters. b310abec3b6383f1bc4bf53b3fb429d5.jpg

 

It's a Lou measure...but I don't really think it's an appropriate move. John Davidson once told me that the more access they get to the players the better, the more interesting tidbits and factoids they can put into the on air broadcasts and make it more entertaining for the viewer. So really it's something that helps the broadcasters do their job. And the players like it too because often they will pick the brains of an ex player commentator on the flight. Mike Richter would constantly be talking to JD about his positioning or whether it seemed like shooters were trying to exploit a weakness...

 

fyi this was at one of those Rag casino night events my ranger fan bro in law took me too. Basically JD was asked how he prepares for broadcasts
