Does anyone know why they get a second? Seems to me like the league is giving them one just to give them one. Did Anaheim get a third I'm unaware of for not signing Schultz? This just seems like a stupid and generally unfair way of rewarding a team for losing.

And if it's in the cba, why aren't more people waiting to sign picks? If you don't sign someone you get a free pick a round later than you took them in? Who here wouldn't have taken a third over Emmerton? Or if Frk keeps up his poor play I'd have been thrilled to get a third for him.

This whole them getting a second and nobody saying why or complaining seems fishy. I don't like it.


Not positive but I think it might be only college players because you are forced to wait to sign them if you want them to keep playing college.

This is a link to the puck daddy article for the 2012 nhlpa player poll, unfortunately it does not appear to be on the cbc's website any longer.  




Detroit ranks second as the team players would most like to play for and if my memory is correct Babs was in the top 3 for coaches that players wanted to play for.  Everyone is overreacting to us not getting every free agent we want.  As marcaractac laid out there's often good reasons people sign elsewhere. 


Edit:  Apparently I don't know how to work the internet sometimes, here's a link to the player poll (Babcock is 4th btw)

Good point about Babcock...until he is gone, this team is stuck in a rut.  Legwand waived his NTC because he wanted to play here, but after what Babcock did to him, he bolted.  Babcock is the issue why no good UFA wants to come here...and its no secret why Canada is going in a different direction for their Olympic team next time.

The back to back Gold medals is a big underachievement.

Hmm. I guess I'll see just how big of a Wings fan my wife really is.

It's our 5th anniversary, and our first time away from the kids together (our kids, not Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco, and Nyquist!) and we'll be staying at one of Vancouver's top luxury hotels

I wonder if I'll be able to see the tv from the tub?


Unfortunately for you cbc is showing the Jets Leafs game because of the important draft implications instead.  Only way to watch the wings game is on cbc.com here.

Why is bertuzzi playing?  Goes offside to yell at a player.
