#2617032 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by marcaractac on 27 June 2015 - 03:54 PM

I just don't understand how Pronger could have taken a job with the league and not forced to retire as a player first. Now basement teams are gonna reach the cap floor with bulls*** contracts like Pronger, when they should be forced to take on players like Weiss.

"The Edmonton oilers have such a historic history."

Historys kind of historic.


That's some redundant repetition right there.

Nice to see Holland looking after top priority stuff here on draft day. :lol:


Seriously though, I don't have a problem with this deal.

#2615156 Last 16 Cup Winners Bracket (from Reddit)

anyone else notice the '02 team come back from down 3-0 against the '09 pens in the first round  :lol:

Ha. Got destroyed the first three games, then came back and rectum.
(I barely knew em)

The 2000 Devils would go a lot deeper than the simulation.  
I do think the 2001 Avs and 2002 Wings were the best teams, so it's ironic a simulation had them in the Finals.  I wonder how "simulated" this was?

I think those two teams were so deep, it doesn't matter how you decide it, its kind of common sense at this point.

As the old expression goes, money /= happiness. Babs will be miserable for at least 3 years in Buffalo, they aren't even close to a playoff team yet.

Does anyone have Mike's email before he makes a decision, I want to send him this article and findings:

Why can't both lose? The hockey gods have been taken over by some force of evil.

Now that Montreal is out, cue the Babcock to Montreal rumours.  Babs no speak French though.

He was at the time one of the better right handed defenders available for cheap. He has a heavy shot from the point, he spent some time in a defensively responsible New Jersey organization and it seemed like a good fit.


At the time I agreed with the move, and even though he has been weak in the playoffs, I don't really regret it even to this point. Tonight he made noticeable mistakes, and this round hasn't been a good performance from him, but we are 3-3, not out and there's time to bounce back. 


Sometimes the vet players work out, sometimes they don't. For what he contributed in the season up to this point in the playoffs, calling for his head is a bit hasty. Let's see how the series finishes out.

Dirty or not?  I say no.


I also really like Tom Wilson.



I didn't like the fact that he made no attempt to play the puck. Otherwise, clean for the most part.


As a defenceman, Visnovsky has to be more aware of the forcheck.

The guy needs to retire. Not because it helps us with the cap, not because he isnt the same player, not because he floats around. He needs to retire because enjoying the next 60 years of his life is more important then a game.


I wish him the best, nobody deserves this. Just sucks.
