 Really does suck when a guy like Hall (similar to Parise) goes into a walk year coming off an injury.  Always muddies the damned waters.  

True. But I’m duty-bound to point out Parise was worse, he signed a 1 year deal with no intention of staying longer, it was just to show he was back. 

At least Hall is still under contract. If he leaves I’ll still hate him because I’m irrational, but not as much as I irrationally hate Parise. 

Which is less than I hate Kovalchuk.

Don’t want to go TOO into Parise because I don’t want to wake any sleeping dogs...but IIRC he was a RFA at the time he signed the one-year deal.  Wasn’t like he had much choice, and his trade value was screwed due to his injury...and that continued early on that year, as it took him some time to get going.

He could’ve signed more than a 1 year deal, obviously. Yes, it would have been for multiple UFA years. But he could’ve. He didn’t because he knew he didn’t want to be here.

Fvck that guy.*

there's one benefit to getting old and that's you simply don't care enough to worry about sh!t like this, it really is refreshing.

I don’t know if you’re older than me, but I’m older than a lot of our board members and I’m still nuts.

Like I’ve mentioned, I’ll be 50 next year and yeah, not all of my screws are tightened down as much as I’d like them to be.

Oh jeez, you shoulda seen me as a teenager, ready to fight at the drop of a hat. It takes a little more than a hat dropping now. 

I wasn’t a picked on fat kid as some speculated. Which of course is offensive stereotyping of fat kids but that went unnoticed lol.

To me it's strange that it's taking this long cause Shero never took that long to get something like that done. Almost all of his upcoming big UFAs were signed by early july of the summer before their last season. Whats the benefit of waiting longer at this point?

Of course anything is speculation at this point... But what do we know? Hall certainly doesn't sound like a guy dying to stay in NJ. Shero is still pretty secretive with his moves. Lots of big RFAS still not signed around the league.

So one can wonder if it's not all connected to "some" extent... what if Shero knows Hall won't be coming back and working on a deal which is why it's taking awhile and may stall other teams in talk with Shero to finish their roster... Cause Hall will be expensive and not that many teams will be able to afford him in 2 years. He's not that expensive this year.

It wouldn't surprise me if Hall's agent is telling him to wait until the RFA deals get done.

You have to think that Marner's contract, while not an exact apples to apples comparison, will set the floor for Hall's deal. If Marner comes in at a higher AAV than Panarin, for example, you can bet that Hall will be looking for something even higher imo.

The unfortunate thing in this scenario is that Marner could very well go until December.. so I don't know what you do with Hall in that case.

Except Marner might not be signing an eight year contract - most speculate that's not what the Marner camp wants at this point. I'd guess part of the back-and-forth between Toronto and Marner involves Toronto not wanting Marner to go straight to UFA. A four year deal that brings him right to UFA is unlikely but on the other hand an eight year deal is not really what the Marner camp is looking for either given the rate at which contract amounts are increasing year after year. Point is,  it'll be hard to use his next contract as a standard for Hall if it's not a long-term deal.  For other RFAs on the other hand, it will set the bar in terms of years and $$$.

In Hall's case, he'll probably sign an eight year deal, the last year of which he will be 36 years old. In my opinion, the Erik Karlsson deal is the one to look to. He signed for 11.5M AAV over eight years and the contract starts in his 29 year-old season - same as Hall's next contract. Does anyone really not see Hall coming within +/- $250,000 of 11.5/8?

55 here coming off an anoxic brain injury suffered in a accident last June which left me in a coma on life support with next to nothing odds to survive the first 24 hours. It changes everything and prioritized well just about everything.  So I'm playing with a handicap now but with house money. Still would get a little nuts around playoff time but not much else around here would get me on edge.

Wow that's a lot to deal with, I hope you're doing ok. And I hope you sued the pants off whomever caused that accident, assuming it wasn't you.

Thanks guys I really appreciate it. Nobody to sue I was on a waverunner and hit a piece of a dock that broke off during sandy and was stuck on a sandbar in the middle of the bay while trying to push a new and modified GP1800. Was looking at the speedometer hit 80 and then for a split second realized the waverunner stopped and I kept going hit the water and it was like somebody hit a light switch all I saw was black. Craziest part was I was face down in the water but there was a cardiologist fishing about 150 yards away that saw me riding then saw the waverunner stopped without anybody on it, so he pulled up his anchor and made his was over. He estimates I was under for 7-10 minutes and you start killing of brain cells at 4 mins. First year was spent learning how to walk and regain the use of my hands and learning how to deal with my hands and feet being on fire 24x7. Now the focus is on neuropysch rehab to try and work around the impairments.

Anyway I appreciate the hell outta being here and all the good and bad times here.

And yeah I was too old for that sh!t but we've been riding since the 80's lucky enough to have a house down on lake norman.
