Anybody doubt that Nill being aggressive this year and last will make his team more desirable to free agents going forward?

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

I agree he has declined a fair bit but I still think he would be good for the team.

 

In what way, though? He's a third paring guy whose strengths are all failing him and whose weaknesses are extremely pronounced. I'd rather have Ouellet or Marchenko, personally.

Honestly, everybody should live in NYC for two years. It's a cool place as long as you don't stay too long.

I've lived here for 10.  (Specifically in Brooklyn) It's definitely losing it's shine.  :D

Stuart traded to Colorado? I hope he wasn't too settled in Cali.

It's like Luke and Yoda...accept less cool because in this scenario Holland is Yoda and he's slowly dying.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Because he'd be redundant on our team.  He plays the same game as Nyquist, who we already have.  But he's a good signing for Dallas. 

I think $4M is a little high for Hemsky either way but I mostly agree with you, which is why I was saying earlier, as much as I like Nill, what he needs to do in Dallas is vastly different and easier than what Holland needs to do in Detroit.

In other news, Jay Baruchel is really pantsed about the Gorges trade. He's tweeting like an LGWer :lol:

Move to DC.  We'll catch a game together.

Didn't he have a NMC?


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

He waived it.

There's always a chance Holland could wind up being Jar-Jar-Binks.
