Oh, I think they will. We don't know for sure whether it was or wasn't in the opening salvo - it's almost a certainty that the PA leaked what was offered, and they likely selectively leaked it. Once they stop negotiating in fairy tale land, I think we'll see more talk about that.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

Kyle Wellwood signed at 1.6 x 1, up from 700k.

This is the point of the off-season where my expectations get unrealistic. I read something like this last year, "Some of these guys will not meet expectations, some will get injured, not everyone will improve." [who said that?]

If Scheifele and Telegin make it then we have too many bodies. They should have figured out how to move up in the draft to ensure Pearson.

I still hope they sign Fehr. You should be able to get him at a discount, and he just has to bounce back.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

And Paul Postma gets a one-way deal @ 550k. I think that's a spot earned, and that makes 6 D-men.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

You boys would've been proud of me last night. Apparently I told the bartender that not only am I "Alcoholic Jesus," I'm also the 3x defending 2p2 NHL POTY. It did not get me a drink on the house.

I need to stop killing myself slowly. Chicago TR coming at some point when I'm not feeling like death. FML.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

you should proceed to killing yourself quickly.

seriously though. alcohol is the worst, and playing hockey is one of the reason why i don't really drink. if i only watched hockey, i probably would still be having quite a few drinks every night.

What? People do things after playing hockey other than drink beer?

I really hope theres no lockout.

On the other hand, that's one less year on gomez and kaberle's contracts and nhl relevance in MTL.

Re: NHL Offseason 2012 Thread

i really like geddy lee's posting even i do not post like him and we often share differing views on hockey. i do not only like things that are like me, even though sometimes it might seem that way. and not everything i say is sarcastic or cutting or attempting to troll. if something i say seems particularly mean, esp to a member of this thread i like, you're probably reading it uncharitably.
