Re: NHL 2017 Offseason Thread - Carolina Reigns, Welcome Red Wings

I can't take this Bettman **** anymore. I'm so ****ing pissed off. Shut the **** up you ****ing dick.

Don't touch one more Canadian team, don't threaten one more Canadian city.

There are few people I've hated so much, and my anger is up again.

Obviously, I'm an Oilers fan, but I don't want to see the Flames leave. Lot of skepticism right now about the timing of this new arena demand and the mayoral election in Calgary.

If the NHL wants to convince Calgary to build a new arena, they have to be a lot more clear about why this arena is "uncompetitive" - by a quick check, they look to have about the 5th most expensive average ticket, and are top 10 in attendance.

The arena might not have all the bells and whistles, but it's pretty unclear how it's putting the Flames at a competitive disadvantage in any way.

ya Bettman is just a puppet of the pos owners, but he's still an awful person and weird, chubby, twitchy weasel.

ya i highly doubt the team is going anywhere, this just seems like a fairly transparent attempt to influence the election. disgraceful. everyone involved with that franchise is horrible and should be ashamed of themselves, but of course none of them are capable of feeling shame.

Good deal, but sadly they missed out on snagging up any UFA years. But still a good deal! Now they have enough room to already aquire their deadline aquisition on the FA market and not give up any picks. 3.5 Mil could even get them Jagr or Franson. Could also take a flyer on Hudler.

Honestly I just care that he's signed. Six years from now, whatever (though you can never be sure with this team). I'm afraid this regime going after Franson or Hudler is a pipe dream I'm afraid.

Indeed they did, I somehow messed this up, since he has already 3 seasons played. You can be UFA before 27 if you have played 7 seasons, or am I missing something?

Re: NHL 2017 Offseason Thread - Carolina Reigns, Welcome Red Wings

something humorous about David Krejci being the highest paid player on the team (for 4 more years!)


unrelated, but it really hasn't been mentioned enough how colossally dum it was for Chiapet to wait until AFTER Draisaitl had a career year to extend him. if he did it last year he probably could have saved $2-3M/year x6 or something. he really is so gd awful at his job. but hey, he wears glasses, has a RANG, and now McBust & frands, so he's set for life as a genius GM according to the donk media.

Laine seems mildly shocked.

Don't worry, he's going to learn from his mistake and definitely won't put Strome (RFA at end of year) & Maroon (UFA at end of the year) on McDavid's wing this year to inflate their stats and price them out of the possibility of re-signing. Yep, I'm fully confident he won't do that.

Spoiler:


To be fair, had he signed Drai for 6x6 last summer, it would have been a gamble as well.

Was more entertaining than the Ohio St. blowout.
No one got hurt and some goals were scored. Will take it.
