Van is a cup contender, they just need little tweaks to put them over the edge.


Little tweaks = defense. Ballard is a step foward, but they need 1 more.

Take the Hossa deal for example:

7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 7.900 4.000 1.000 1.000 0.750 0.750

Works out to a 5.223 per year hit, the last few years have to drop down drastically for it to work.

Which is why the league has rules to prevent it from dropping too much. For instance it can not go from 7.9 to 1.0, I believe it can't be more than a third of the previous years contract.

It's less than that. Take a look at Prongers contract: » $7.600, $7.600, $7.200, $7.000, $4.000, $0.525, $0.525.

From year 5 to 6, it sees around 1/7th of the previous year.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Malholtra is an overpayment... 2.5, 3 years and a NTC? eesh... and for once I agree with McGuire, this is a slap in the face to Cody Hodgson.

I hadn't even thought of a Turco/Smith tandem. The two of them worked really well together before Smith's trade to Tampa, it might work out again.

Worst contract of the day award is still going to Toronto taking Armstrong at 3 mil. Just wait till he blindsides someone and gets suspended, hes the perfect person for the league to make an example of.


Did anyone not see this coming? Brian Burke is their GM now.

I like the Morris deal for the yotes, and surprisingly the Tanguay one.

Eklund says that Ellis has signed with TB. Which means he's probably signed with Atlanta. :P

And Boogaard is close to signing long-term somewhere.

Man o man, you lived in Roppongi? You must be unbelievably wealthy. But yea, Roppongi Hills is nice (near malls and Tokyo Tower) but the main strip area has gotten REALLY dodgy.


Our apartment was just under $2000 a month, near the area where Roppongi Hills/Mori Tower is now. Nothing but insane fun.
