In Topic: Tarasenko re-signs with the Blues (60 mill/8 years)

26 October 2015 - 08:48 PM

About what the hockey writers were talking about earlier this summer. he was going to eat up much of their cap space.
This doesn't help us and those that think Nyquist is going to get a "bridge" deal.....

I think Tarasenko has a much higher ceiling than Nyquist. Tarasenko is basically Datsyuk 2.0.

In Topic: 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

Wings D is a little unsettled. Probably gonna take 1/2 season to mesh.

I don't think there's anything to mesh. Green hasn't been all that good three years and Smith and Kindl are the same as they've always been. We don't need them to mesh we need Marchenko and Oullett. I'm willing to give Kindl a fresh start but Smith is just a dumb hockey mind, and you can't teach someone to be smarter like we need him to be.

I forgot about DD, he obviously helps them.

I know it's just pre-season, but it's got to count for something that we're scoring so much and other teams aren't. Right?

In Topic: Leafs Announcers Will No Longer Travel With the Team

Everyone here is focused on the angle that they were somehow attacking the announcers or ruining Leafs nation.  No one here raised an eyebrow that they were trying to cut a mere $200,000 by doing this?  Aren't they the wealthiest franchise in the league?

In Topic: Stan Bowman (CHI) on CBA troubles

Yeah, they lost out on a lot of guys they wanted, but back then the third or fourth option was still good. Now the fourth option is a #4 d-man or a forward you hope scores 20 goals

This is more due to the CBA rules on contracts than the cap itself. If there were a four year limit on contracts you'd see a much bigger free agency frenzy. It's these career long contracts that have killed the offseason excitement and led to stagnant teams.
