25 probably? Or trade Ericsson and let him have 52 :P


#2618208 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Hell yeah. I've liked green since he entered the league and the wings need scoring from the defense real bad. Love the signing.


#2618005 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

"@leahhextall: With Kessel gone now just one player on Toronto's roster makes more than Babcock!"

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: O'Reilly signs with BUF. Two year deal at $700K per. One way deal. That's CAL O'Reilly, Ryan's older brother. Guess we know who's next."

Oh Bobby, so misleading :P

Finally the full trade laid out in one convenient tweet :P

"@TSNBobMcKenzie: Kessel, Tyler Biggs, Tim Erixon and 2nd in 2016 for Kapanen, Harrington, Spaling, 1st and 3rd picks in 2016. TOR retains $1.25M/year."


#2617882 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Maybe if Babcock weren't the leafs coach.. I'm guessing Arizona

If we were to sign ehrhoff for the first pair, I'd rather keep the second pair Dekeyser and Quincey.. They played well together last season.

Kronwall-Ehrhoff
Dekeyser-Quincey
Ericsson-Smith

Not an amazing defensive lineup but not terrible. But, I don't think Ehrhoff will be signed by Kenny.. although if I remember correctly, didn't we have interest in him before he signed with Pittsburgh? If he could stay healthy, he'd be a decent addition on a short deal.


#2617812 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by amato on Yesterday, 07:01 AM

So pissed about this entire Weiss situation. Holland screwed up by signing him over Filppula (yeah yeah I know I still miss him), Babcock managed him like s*** two years in a row and Holland should have just bought him out when he had the chance to do it without penalty (admittedly I'm not sure if we could have bought him out without penalty).


We couldn't have. Players had to be signed before the new cba was signed to be eligible for the compliance buyouts.

And, krsmith, I thought they'd give him another season under a new coach to play well here too.. I'm guessing the new coach didn't want him as much as one of his kids from GR. Mayyybe we're planning on signing franson/green/whoever, but I think it's more blashill didn't have Weiss in his plans. I'm sure Kenny was trying to include him in a trade before buying him out but obviously no potential trade scenario panned out.. best of luck to Weiss, I wish he would've had a better time in Detroit.


#2617602 Brendan Smith re-signed 2 yrs $2.75 mill AAV

Good deal. I have a feeling blash will use him better than babs did.


#2617513 Dougie hamilton to calgary

Posted by amato on 30 June 2015 - 01:00 PM

Good deal for both sides. I'm glad he's not in Boston anymore.

Where did someone say they'd give $7+ mill? Most I see on here is five. Am I missing something?


#2617442 Mike Richard's Contract Terminated (Not Bought Out)

Posted by amato on 30 June 2015 - 07:38 AM

I would say he either hasn't been putting the work in physically off ice, or he got into Stoll's stash....or both ;)

#2617183 Datsyuk Has Ankle Surgery

Posted by amato on 29 June 2015 - 09:22 AM

Nyq-z-Abby
Tatar-sheahan-pulk
Helm-larkin-jurco
Miller-glendog-ferrero

Something like that if Larkin gets a chance while datsyuk is out..? Idk if he will but I wouldn't be opposed. Our line up could benefit a lot from a Joel ward type signing. But I'd only want him for two years probably and it's looking like he wants four. Either way, I hope pav makes a full recovery asap. He's our best defenseman.

Datsyuks ankle is our off season acquisition.

@ArponBasu: I can't wait for the Bruins to trade whoever they take 15th tonight for three more picks five years from now

Hahaha tweets like this are why I made a Twitter :P
