#2012715 Nabokov leaves the NHL, signs with KHL

Posted by T.Low on 08 July 2010 - 03:04 PM

Yup.

This is a good example of the salary cap leading to less talent in the NHL. Hopefully it will remain a rare case.


EDIT: and off topic, who's the idiot who keeps rating all the threads one star?






Does anyone else see the irony of the N. American hockey league using a centrally planned system (salary cap) and the Russian using more of a free market system for a team's roster based on supply and demand and simple cost/benefit projections?.

Sheesh. What's this country coming to?

#2012602 So Franzen was the best player in the playoffs

And I think he was noticeably struggling with his injury.
His name belongs right there with Ovechkin, Crosby and Zetterberg in terms of playoff monsters the past few years.


and GetFlaf too!


#2012568 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

True and could not care less versus could care less. Although I suppose that one is a little more advanced.

Standard line anytime somebody "could care less"...

If you could care less, you probably would.

For some reason, a common error I see is the word "loose" being used for "lose"

And of course, confusion between "resign" and "re-sign"

How can Lidstrom leave the game as one of the greatest at his position when people can't even spell his name right?

Where did you see that we actually offered him? Everything I've heard has been speculation.
