In Topic: Chara out 4-6 weeks with knee injury

Yesterday, 12:01 PM

Would this put them in the Tyler Myers discussion? I've been told they couldn't take on that contract, but Idk.

 

Conceivably, they could take on his salary with Chara out but when he comes back, it would all depend on who they sent back Buffalo's way.  If everyone is healthy (with the exception of Savard of course) their cap space is only $3.7m & Myers comes with a $5.5m cap hit.  Given those numbers, I would think that Boston would look for a less costly, short term solution.

I thought I read somewhere that Roy gets 2 million per year. I didn't realize quenville made that much.

 

Well, it's assumed he does.  See thought #28 here: http://www.sportsnet...tud-defencemen/

I think it would be the highest paid coaching contract in the league if I'm not mistaken. He's was already pretty close to the top (and was when he signed) at $2m

 

Officially, Quennville is the highest paid coach in the league at $2.9m a year.  Roy's overall compensation is probably more than that given his additional VP role.

I thought Sakic is the VP there and Roy is acting as a player / GM type of guy ?

 

But yeah I agree and I think Babcock has done everything to earn that title and/or trust.

 

Roy's titles are Head Coach & VP of Hockey Operations

In Topic: NHL Gamecenter Live **No illegal stream discussion**

And the NHL has relatively reasonable prices. The AHL and WHL charge $300+ for a full season.

 

I would like to see the NHL negotiate the next TV contract to give them the ability to offer a no-blackout service to fans.

 

If the league is willing to take less money from NBC, Rogers, regional networks, etc. they could probably make that happen.  No network is going to pay full price though if they don't have exclusive rights.
