I don't get how pens can sign both martin and michalek in the same day

Losing Gonchar opened up some extra cap space and created a big hole on their back end.

Martin deal 5 years 5 mil a year confirmed

"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

5 years, $5 mil per for Martin confirmed, via Bob McKenzie.

Wow, I was slow with that ... seems a reasonable deal since Pittsburgh apparently has no salary cap.

Unless either of those guys can play wing with Crosby, those guys combined really fill that much of a need for the Penguins. One guy, yeah you can justify that but all of a sudden they look ultra thin on the wing for the next few years now that they've committed all this money to D.

Paul Martin gets a substantial raise, for 5-years no less, for being hurt all year and sucking in the playoffs.

Well done Pittsburgh.

Man, I didn't realize that Pittsburgh has no salary cap.
The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Pavel Datsyuk > x (where x is the name of any active hockey player)

Asham will NOT get 2M. Where did you get that figure from? He's had better years than last year and never had anything more than 900k.

He'll be lucky to get 1M.

When a guy like Gonchar comes off of the books the cap drops dramatically, much like the day Lids hangs them up that is 7 mil in cap space right there.

1a. Asham 1b. Winchester 1c. Nystrom
2. Konopka

fair enough




1a, 1b and 1c are all MW

2 can fight with HW


Asham's best fighting days are behind him (Montreal era) now he looks more to score and less to fight. I would take Asham instead of Cleary - but not as 4th line as Holland is looking at...

He'll be lucky to get 1M.

And at 1M I would take him in a split second. A steal actually in my mind.

Note to players: A couple of big bangs on Youtube adds about $1/year to your next multiyear contract.
