These bits made my eyes pop out

Link to article

Boogaard's four-year, $6.6 million contract seems wildly excessive and will challenge coach John Tortorella's familiar assertion that paychecks don't influence lineup decisions. It is a fact, however, that Edmonton actually offered Boogaard -- who is going to Russia this summer to train with Pavel Datsyuk --$7 million over four years.


not sure what is more mind bogging, Edmonton offering the Boogeyman $7 million over 4 years, or that the Boogeyman is going to train with Pasha in Russia this offseason.

Edmonton is a horrible organization. They over pay their players so much because no one wants to go there.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Boogard trained with datsyuk in Russia last offseason as well.

That is why some people speculated that Boogard signing in Detroit was a good possibility.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Well Edmonton did a lot better by giving Steve MacIntyre 500K instead of the outrageous s*** offered to Boogaard.

just wait till Boogie will learn a couple of datsykian deekes. He'll be more than a power forward then!
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Betweenf****** Glen Sather and the dumbass Oilers, we never had a shot at Boogaard. Why are teams/gm's so stupid? Boogaard is an ok hockey player, sure he's the toughest dude in the NHL, but anything more then 800k a year is ridiculous overpayment. And Edmonton were ready to give him almost more then a million more then that, incredible.

I don't care how tough Boogy is. No way he should be making over a million per season. Especially in this salary cap era. Seriously unbelievable.

Booger (I wonder if anyone has called him that to his face...) went over last year to help Pavel with his camp for kids in Pav's hometown. Boog is from Sask. Pav is from Siberia. I used to live in Sask. From what I hear, they're similar.

That would of been so cool to see Boogard come to Detroit, living in Minnesota and watching him play is actually fun. It's amazing hearing the fans chant Boogard.

I can't wait to see Avery and Boogard together this year on the Rangers. I'm sure I'll get some s*** for saying that.

Saskatchewan and Siberia are similar? Haha what? Maybe the climate, but that is about it. They probably couldn't be any more different!
