In Topic: Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

IMO they need to no longer allow players on LTIR to be traded. Specifically those who are out indefinitely/forever. It is the only way to stop these trades. The cap was brought in to level competition, by forcing teams to all pay a similar salary for their roster. By taking on a cap hit that should be retired, the Yotes while technically are inching close to the cap floor, will actually be paying nowhere near it. Same for how the Leafs were able to dump Clarkson's contract to be able to pay a player who will never play again, and not count against the cap. Neither trade should have been allowed at all. 


To be honest I don't really have a problem with the Clarkson trade, as much as I do this Pronger deal. Clarkson may actually turn out to be a useful player for Columbus. If they truly couldn't afford to pay for in and another actually turn out to be a useful player for Columbus. If they truly couldn't afford to pay for in and another quality player than this really is the best move that could've happened for them and for their fans too.

However, the reason the Floor was put in place was partially from cheating their fans. The coyotes trading for Pronger who is never going to play again just to reach the floor does just that.

He certainly has an.... Interesting and distinguished resume of reffing (screwing) the Wings, doesn't he?
Still, no PP for the Habs... Yet.

Well the man was shot and almost killed in Detroit. How this isn't seen as a conflict of interest is beyond me.

In Topic: Sergei Bobrovsky signs 4 year extension with Blue jackets

I've gone to almost every Jackets home game this year, this is a good deal for CBJ. I honestly don't see them ever being up against the cap so while the number is wee bit high, Bob is worth every penny. He is their MVP, he steals games, keeps them in games and is fairly consistent in he regular season. If he could just have raised his game in the playoffs they would have beat the Penguins last year, an than who knows how far they would have gone.

I wonder how Keith feels right now. As a UFA his salary could hit the stratosphere, but now he's stuck making literally half of his fellow leaders on the team for similar term, and is their second highest paid Dman. Cheers to Keith for being a team player. 

 

As for next year Chicago has 15 players signed (10F 3D 2G) and just a little over 3mil in cap room.
