    Looks like we have a goalie next year

    Some Canes fans think Mrazek will be looking for a salary increase to what he was making in Detroit, around $4 million per season on a 3-4 year deal. They also have McElhinney, who has played excellent as well, and will want a raise, probably close to Mrazek's. His age is a question though, so perhaps another 1 year deal. Nedeljkovic who is overripe in the AHL, and they have to get into NHL action soon. Not ready to be a starter, but they have to see what he's got. Darling is never returning to the big club. So they have a three goalie jam. The tandem system seems to be working out great for them, but they have a decision to make. Diggin' the black equipment:

    Blashill expected back next season...

    Marner won't get that much. He'll get more than Nylander and less than Matthews. $9-10 million. The leafs can buy out Marleau's $6.5 million or whatever and do a couple other things to make room. That being said though, Dubas overpaid for Nylander.

    Could have. But Vas could have just as easily been as much of a bust as he is a star. Never guarantees in drafting goalies. Seems more late rounders become elite than early rounders. Not as much immediate pressure, and time to develop, perhaps? You do have first rounders like Fleury, Price, and Vas that lived up to their potential, and ones that def didn't, like Al Montoya (6th overall), Brent Krahn (8th), Brian Finley (6th), Chet Pickerd (18th)

    Yep, nothing wrong with this at all. Howard said wants one year deals from here on out, being 35 years old. His deal has no trade clauses either, so if they want to move him at the deadline next season, no obstacles.

    Howard = Average

    Where's Bryzgalov when ya need him? He'd wear that all season.
  8. Chara always has the advantage no matter what due to his height and reach. I agree that he took it easy on Kane here, seemed to just be toying with him after he landed that one that sent his helmet flying. Kane still beaking off after too. He took a sucker shot at Chara and ended up getting owned.

    2019 Trade Deadline

    I look at it this way. If Kenny wanted to sign him, he had to give the NTC, or no deal. No one asks for an NTC on a one year deal on a non-playoff team unless they're tired of moving around or are planning to retire and don't want the playoff grind or care about the playoffs at all, strictly about the easy money. What would the return for Vanek be as a depth scorer? Last time Kenny traded him, he was playing really well and still only got a 3rd and McIllrath in return for him and a lower pick. This season he hasn't done much, wouldn't get anything that matters in return.
  10. I'd hang onto Glenny. Kronwall, if the offers decent, may as well. Unless he's planning on playing another season. Vanek won't agree and will probably retire, and with Howard, I never believe any rumors. He's been rumored to be traded more than enough times. Either it happens or insiders need to stfu.
  11. King Henrik cried when the Zuc trade happened.
  12. Couldn’t get a first out of SJ? It is what it is though. Was originally reported he didn’t want to waive the NTC because he liked it in Detroit. I never put much stock in the theory that players agree to trades to get the team they’re leaving some assets, but maybe he re-signs in Detroit in the off-season. Far from guaranteed though, too much can happen in the meantime.
  13. Blew a 3-1 lead? Oh well, i don't mind. Tank! When is Satari gonna get a start?
