NHL Crazy...

Weber front-loaded offer sheet signed....Philly to pay 110 million over ?10-14 years (can't remember now)

If Nashville does NOT match by Wed., they will get  one or two active players from the Flyer roster and 4 1st round draft picks as compensation

I say don't match...

Nash to NYR

Anisimov, Dubinsky, Tim Erixon and 2013 1st rnd pick.to CLB

We waited that long for that!?  WTF? or rather lol.

Parise and Suter to MIN at close to 200 million combined.

I say Parise and Suter never win the Stanley Cup and MIN doesn't even the playoffs next year

Hasek come back at 47?  not yet...

Owners are poor and players are greedy...really - and the NHL booming profits must be an accounting error...



Big signings

Free agents Zach Parise, Ryan Suter sign with Minnesota Wild - ESPN

How about that turn of events? Anyone see BOTH of them going to the Wild? What else does Minn need to be a contender now - goaltending? And who gets sloppy seconds with Semin and Carle? And have we really made progress with the Salary Cap if it means contracts like Suter and Parise lasting 13 years?

Other news
- Jagr signs in Big D, which seems to me a bit surprising given their track record in the past as far as team structure is concerned.
- Sullivan signs with desert dogs - too little too late? Or trying to fill the Whitney void?
- Coyotes Maclean in ICU after cardiac collapse
- What happens to Shea Weber now?

Food for thought...


Who will be more valuable?  Schultz or Yakopov?
