  1. [Signing] Canucks re-sign Troy Stecher

    Yeah that extra $300,000 is really gonna hurt us cap wise.
  2. Jim Benning Mic'd Up at the Draft

    I'm thinking that Arizona would have snapped up cotton candy at #5 and that is why they didnt trade down.
  3. At 5"6 and 180lbs Palmu won't be squeezing through cracks.
  4. Tyler motte is waiver exempt to start the year. He will be waiver eligible after playing 1 nhl regular season game.
  5. Awesome deal for the jackets. I could see him putting up 60 points next year.
  6. [Signing] Blues sign Patrick Maroon

    Worst kept secret in the world... I heard he was going there 2 weeks ago.
  7. [Report] Luca Sbisa to test free agency

    I would rather not sign him just so I don't have to listen to the sbisa haters blind hate and idiotic lingo.
  8. In all fairness he was waived and 30 teams had the option to take him if they deemed him NHL material. None did. I also don't think the reason he wasn't called up was a waiver risk seeing as he would have to be on the roster for 30 days or play 10 games before being waiver eligible again.
  9. Brian burke joined the Anaheim ducks in 2005 and one of his first orders of business he traded away his 4 leading scorers (Fedorov,Prospal,Sykora and Rucchin). This was a total shocker and when asked for a reason burke told the reporter that when you have young thoroughbreds you have to clear the stable (could not find the direct quote online but i remember him using the analogy). In turn he brought in role players like Moen, O'donnell and Fedoruk to make sure his young horses could run. That year the team had breakout seasons from younger players like Perry, Getzlaf, McDonald, Kunitz, Penner and Beauchemin. Replacing the Sedins with Neal and Bozak would have crowded the stables. Adding leadership with grit in the bottom of the lineup leaves those doors open and clears the path. Benning said that our scoring will come from our younger players and I believe him.
  10. [Signing] Blue Jackets re-sign Boone Jenner

    Do you remember the last 20 years where we cheaped out on our bottom 6? Years of... Bitz Ritchie Ebbett Megna Chaput Jaffray Green Bouck I'm happy to pay a bit more for legit nhl bottom 6 with character.
  11. The NHL needs to implement a uniform tax policy

    Those poor cacs!
  12. [Signing] Blue Jackets re-sign Boone Jenner

    You mean 2 down years? At this point it's easier to say 3 years ago was an up year rather than saying he had 4 down years. That being said the CBJs did well with this deal. If he stays the 17 goal 33 point player that he showed for most of his career he is about market value. If he can rekindle his 30 goal season form it's a steal.
  13. The guy has averaged 13 goals, 28 points, 10 fights, 125 hits, 56 blocks and 26 takeaways per 82 games throughout his career while playing only 13:27 per game. Those numbers would put him... 6th in points 6th in goals 2nd in hits 1st in blocks 3rd in takeaways .....on our forward group last season. The guy is a lot more than PIMs.
