bertuzzi and cleary scratched for the same game?

AND NOW THIS!?

 

 

 

WOOOOOOOOOO

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 goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. 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.

it gives us $100,000 cap relief but a much needed roster spoy. this is interesting thou as many reports say he wont be claimed on waivers, I got a hunch that Kenny has sounded some teams out about Sammy, they wont take on his salary but may thru waivers. He could do a contender a job on their 3/4 line maybe.

 

I think John Tortorella has a better chance of winning a Nobel Peace Prize than Sammy has of getting picked up on waivers.

Kennys finally realized the kids are our ticket to the post season and admitted to his faults by sitting all 3 dead weight vets. Im expecting great things between now and the olympic break.

Took management only half a season to realize what the fans believed all along. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I think Bert's a good locker room guy. Always see him chatting with the young guys giving them advice. It's just a shame cause he can have a good game where he's creating chances all night but those games are few and far between

2 things:

 

Once Weiss is off IR, they will be over the cap unless they can clear cap on a more permanent basis.  This move only allows them to keep a kid up a little longer.  I ran it through capgeek's armchair GM feature.

 

 FORWARDS

Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Justin Abdelkader ($1.800m) 
Johan Franzen ($3.955m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Gustav Nyquist ($0.950m) 
Tomas Tatar ($0.630m) / Stephen Weiss ($4.900m) / Daniel Alfredsson ($3.500m) 
Drew Miller ($1.350m) / Joakim Andersson ($0.733m) / Luke Glendening ($0.575m) 
Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m) 
DEFENSEMEN
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Kyle Quincey ($3.775m) 
Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m) / Jakub Kindl ($2.400m) 
Brendan Smith ($1.263m) / Danny DeKeyser ($0.925m) 
Brian Lashoff ($0.725m) / 
GOALTENDERS
Jimmy Howard ($5.292m) 
Jonas Gustavsson ($1.500m) 
BUYOUTS
Carlo Colaiacovo ($0.000m) 
BURIED
Danny Cleary ($0.825m) 
Mikael Samuelsson ($2.900m) 
Patrick Eaves ($0.275m) 
Jordin Tootoo ($0.975m) 
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(estimations for 2013-14 crunched using simulation date of 2014-01-25)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; BONUSES: $2,635,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $89,333

 

2: Samuelsson's NTC is irrelevant.  If he was scoring 20 goals, they probably wouldn't want to move him.  If they did want to move him, players generally are willing to waive the NTC.  As bad as he's been, nobody is going to want to trade for him even if he didn't have the NTC.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Ken Holland's worst signing ever. I expected it to be a nightmare and it turned out substantially worse somehow. 

 

Just glad Sammy is finally gone. No more Bertuzzi last game, maybe no Cleary tomorrow. The roster decisions are finally trending the right direction.

Sucks that it only saves $100k towards the cap, but the fact that Holland made this move speaks volumes, almost like he's acknowledging that he made a mistake. Now, let's hope Mule can come back in and quickly regain the scoring touch and snarl he had before the concussion, he should bump Cleary off the PP completely.

I must admit I was surprised when I saw this. I'm for having veteran guys, but not when they do absolutely nothing. Cleary should be next if he continues to play as poorly as he has, but we all know Babcock really likes Clears.

Trade Andersson keep Sheahan? That would work cap-wise.

Barely.  Sheahan's hit is actually higher.  But that wouldn't do much for the rest of this year except give them one fewer center to call up if needed, and wouldn't help at all for the playoffs since Sheahan could be called up then anyway.

I think in the end, a couple of the kids will be sent back down but told that they'll be called back up at season's end when the cap no longer applies.

I had just been wondering what Sammy was up to. I didn't know if he was just a healthy scratch or in Bab's dog house (ie. Commodore64). I figured something had to be going on behind the scenes.
