Zacha's put up 22 G and 27 A in his last 70 GP.  That's productive enough to make me want to see if he's truly turned a corner.

That being said, if he's going as part of a package to bring in an upgrade who still has a number of good years left, yeah, I'll listen.  Not if he's part of a trade where he's clearly the best player being moved though.

Agreed, and Niederreiter is not that guy and hasn’t been for years. 

Zacha’s last 70 you mentioned is a 0.7 PPG. Nino is 0.55 PPG over the last 5 years. Even in his best season, he was 0.69 PPG.  And he is 5 years older than Zacha. 

Zacha is on the way up to his potential (or I guess he could have hit his peak, we will see), and Nino is clearly at least at a plateau before hitting his downturn.

I want no part of that trade.  And that’s coming from me lol.

Damn that's embarrassing. IIRC didn't Marty score a shoulder injury during the 03 cup win goal rush? I remember an image of his arms raised and someone crashing into him and his arm bending so unnaturally, and I have a faint memory of him rehabbing that off-season. I could have completely made that up

I'm not a dentist or a zoologist but in my opinion his shoulders are looking fine here

I figured this was worth nothing outside the thread in the Marketplace.

So this year the NHL is making a change to the actual materials of the on-ice jersey.  They are switching from the current material to the Parley material that was worn during the All-Star game a couple years back in San Jose.  The material is either totally or partially made from recycled materials and falls in line with Adidas' initiative to go more green.

Now, some of you may or may not know that the on-ice MiC jerseys the players wear are actually quite a bit different than the ones Adidas sells to the public as "Authentic" which are made in Indonesia and made out of completely different materials that were called both AeroReady and Climalite (same thing they just changed names a couple years back).  The new "Authentics" Adidas will be selling to the public are going to be called PrimeGreen and apparently also with recycled material.  Below is an example of Adidas starting to sell Vegas jerseys using this branding.

This is also largely the reason why the past year or so Adidas has been dumping a lot of jerseys to discount retailers like Ross, TJ Maxx, etc.

Interesting that the price point remained the same. I expected a slight increase due to the added cost that is usually associated with "going green". 

Hopeful that the material will be a little nicer than the previous Indonesian jerseys, which don't even feel like they are made of cloth. 

I also note they changed the description from "relaxed fit" to "loose fit", and as a big guy all I have to say about that is "my balls", they fit significantly smaller than all previous manufacturer's jerseys.

Doesnt appear like he did

But like i said Lou would, he'd wait to announce everyone at the same time.

 

 

The rest of those deals seem normal, Sorokin may prove to be a bargain at $4m. 

Who's Palmieri's agent, David Copperfield?

That Palms contract is gonna be ugly. Parise one might be even uglier if that's still happening. 

Yeah you almost wonder who Lou was bidding against on that one.  The AAV isn't terrible, but four years?  His game was just iffy enough last season to justify offering a year or two.  If that's what his camp was looking for, I can see why Fitz moved on. 

Devils got Palms' most cost-effective years for sure.

This reminds me a lot of the Adam Henrique contract. Most fans saying "I'd take him back if the price were right" and then he signs for something that makes you go "oh are you fvcking JOKING me!?"
