Canadiens targeting Eric Belanger or Max Talbot BECAUSE THEY ARE FRENCH CANADIANS. WTF? That handcuffs that team so much...

Feeling a little silly for getting all excited for free agency this year.
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

Avs have to spend money and could have gotten Vokoun for money.

To burn a 1st and a 2nd on Varlamov is crazy.

Me too.

I guess I can go make some trades in NHL 11 that will satisfy me.

So from what I gathered it seems Det is in on Kaberle and White for D and Cole and Leino for the top 6 forward.

I truly don't see the appeal of Marcel Goc or what he brings to a team at all. Is there something I am missing?

I am starting to pull for TB more...

I hope Richards signs in TB and Vinny gets moved to MTL. That would be so awesome.

I highly doubt he goes back to TB, I mean granted almost everything is new in TB, he didn't leave TB for money, he left for a chance to win another cup, then Dallas turned into TB v2.0.
The article I posted led me to believe he is looking for a traditional market with a deep hockey tradition, and one that has been a contender.

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

"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

Just saw the 12.8 million for one year... Any chance the Wings are that team? I say no, but who knows.

I have heard nothing of this, what are your sources?
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Matt Keator, agent for Michal Handzus, sent email to all NHL GMs saying PHI media reports he signed in PHI erroneous. Very much a free agent.

That better not be true. I simply refuse to believe Holland is that asinine. I'm sick of him getting rid of players just to sign them up again. We all know how well it worked with Williams.

And trust me, I LIKE Leino....but he's out of the picture now and the team needs to move on.
