Too many injuries. Guy's shoulder is all fvcked up

Ah damn, is it?  I knew he had missed some time, but didn't know it was serious.

Let's be honest, we all knew NJ wasn't going to be on that list at all and NYR would be first on the list.

Yup. A guy can dream though.

I mean this is no surprise. Every year, every time we see player X has waived their NTC if they can go to NYR, BOS, VGK etc. 

I would faint if I saw a tweet that says Player X has given a list of clubs he can be traded: NJD, ARZ, OTT or BUF

It hurts me that FLA is on that list.

They've been good for a bit. However, take a look at that list: Maybe with the exception of Boston and Caps, all those those other places are either close to or major night life hubs. Russians love their partying

For sure. I am not wondering why with any of those destinations. I hate Florida and it is pain that FLA and CAR have managed to make stronger teams in the same timeframe NJD has just been stagnant at the bottom. I really hope we're finally starting to be on the other side of that struggle.

Word on the street is Landeskog is unhappy with Avs management and is looking for cashola.

We have cashola. What does it realistically take to bring him in (holding aside then “nobody wants NJ” thing, let us dream for message board purposes)?

This is likely public bargaining. We hear all the time that player and team are far apart and then they patch it up in an afternoon. They're going to keep playing this game and let people report on it until someone gets antsy enough to budge. 

No way Joe lets his captain walk to UFA. 

EDIT: I would love if Kaprizov was eligible for an offer sheet. He wants a short-term deal that walks him to UFA status that Min doesn't want to give him. They're trying to lock him up for 7+ years. If another team could swoop in and offer sheet him giving him exactly what he wants to force Guerin's hand to match that would just be an awesome bit of fvckery.

I wasn’t kidding when I said I’d offer him 10% if the earnings of prudential center on top of his contract…

If he actually has to retire, I think his recapture pentalty would be the only I’d feel bad about. The dude plays balls out day in and day out, hasn’t tried to cheat the system, and neither has Montreal.

if that makes sense at all

With Makar, Landeskog and a handful of others coming due, he might not have much of a choice for the bulk of the core…

Well, aside from his complete backstab to Nashville for signing that rediculous Philly offer sheet. But I don't care about Nashville anyway, fuq them.

I don't know if that's a back stab. He would be a fool not to have taken that offer

I would love Landeskog here - exactly the type of leader these young kids need.

Unfortunately, I think the $$$ if he were to leave Colorado would be... stupid.  Like, 7 x 8M stupid.

Lots of guys wouldn't screw a team like that. Just look at the contracts in Boston for instance. Just shows what his character is.

I bet they end up waiving the recapture penalty in this case.   The rule was made after the fact and the Flyers were the ones who wrote the contract.  The intent was never to bury a team like Nashville with a 20 some million cap hit for literally just keeping their own superstar.   They did nothing wrong here.       

 

Edit: I just read the article and I guess the recapture penalty has come down now that he's played more years.  I still don't think they saddle Nashville with this.

Problem is though it burns Montreal and not the Preds (I think)

 

EDIT: I was wrong (shocking!). It burns the Preds for almost $5m. Save your body Shea!

I would take a 1 or 2 year deal on Yandle over anything from OEL any day.  Guy is still fairly productive and he is freakishly durable.

The Devils shouldn't touch OEL unless he's packaged with picks and Garlund.
