What a sham this leage is... that the coilers can tank it for all these years and get away with it!
Whats worse, is that in the end, their elite top draft picks will bolt from that hell-hole of a city and move somewhere worth living.
I remember Souray cathing flack for refusing to be part of it and he became the bad guy.
If you disagree, consider that this sham of a roster lacked almost any D or reliable goaltending for years while they rolled out a bunch of cheap goons and pylons expecting any success. Sure, sure, call it a rebuild, but really, it was a complete write-off, a sham. Parity sucks.
In the end the coilers will have a super stud roster financed by the NHL and will see the departure of many of these high draft picks from either free agency or traded for cap reasons. What a waste of time.
Great job, Gary!
Gee lets see. two of their "top players" are signed there for the next 8 years (Hall and Eberle). The signed extensions right away. Next up is RNH.
Maybe do some research on the Souray situation. The team was going nowhere and he was frustrated that he had not been traded yet and spout out to the media. He breaks his hand in a fight just before that so kind of hard to trade him.
The great thing is that all of that garbage is behind them now and they have good solid character players in the locker room now. Guys who have bought into their roles.
Dang I didn't know the4 NHL was financing this roster. What a deal for KATZ!
