In Topic: Lockout Officially Over, MOU for CBA Signed

Today, 12:45 AM

Couldn't find the official lockout thread, but thought this to be just as good a place as any to post this. Interesting read.

Maybe these contracts will actually prevent a lockout. Will owners really wanna lockout the players and eliminate revenue right after paying out all these big bonuses? Maybe this will actually be incentive to keep the guys on the ice and the money coming back in. 

Sure there are lots of contracts out there with this "lockout protection", but if July 1st keeps going the way it has this year, maybe everyone will finally be happy with the way things are going.

In Topic: Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Yesterday, 11:46 PM

Toes is no doubt the better player now. Both of them at their best are pretty well equal. Both amazing players capable of carrying their team on their back. I give Toews the prime vote simply because he will likely be at that level longer than Hank. Depending on what time of day you ask me, my choice for best in their prime would change. They are both just that good. 

 

If both were in their prime, and I were a gm who had to choose any current player to build a team around, Toews and Hank would be the top 2 options. 

 

Having said that, I would choose prime Dats and Hank as a pair over Toews and Kane any day. Eurotwins for life, yo.

I looked price before we got him, but I didn't realize how dominant he consistently is until he came to the tigers.
Its rare for the guy to throw less than 8innings.
He's amazing, you got yourself a good pitcher, and I hope he gets himself a ring.
The jays definitely seemed prime for a good run at it.

 

Yeah they made a couple more good moves today, including getting Mark Lowe for the pen. The only bummer about Price is that it's all but certain he will be elsewhere next season.

Sorias about to be gone too.


I'm not familiar with any of the guys we got back for price, but apparently Norris is an amazing prospect.

 

All 3 of the prospects have potential, but Norris is definitely a top prospect. Sucks to see him go,but good to see the Jays are finally going for it after 22 years of disappointment. 

 

In the end, the Jays big time overpaid for a rental. But it's a much better story than the usual "New York Yankees acquire ......."
