Happy Holidays to all!

#2557606 Rank our griffins d prospects

Posted by amato on 19 December 2014 - 08:56 AM

They just traded a 6th rounder to Carolina for Jay Harrison. Carolina is retaining 25% of his salary (1.5 million). Seriously?


looks like 30% 




Told that Carolina is retaining 30 percent of Jay Harrison's salary in trade with Winnipeg.


Also, seeing that Paul Maurice used to coach him in Carolina.... so he's a known commodity. That could've had something to do with it.

I think they'd all be good suitors, as well. The biggest issue with moving Kindl, I believe, is the term on his deal. One less year on his deal and he's gone by now, IMO. The Jets seem like a perfect place for him to go, considering a lot of their injuries have some term on them, and they have plenty of cap space.

Rumors have them offering a bottom six player (Thorburn, Halischuk, Peluso, Galiardi) in return for a defender. I'd prefer a pick, but at this point I want that roster spot cleared up above all else.



There's definitely a need there for d-men, that's for sure.



On Thursday, the club announced that veteran rearguard Mark Stuart would be out of the lineup ’til February with a lower-body injury, making him the fourth defenseman the club has lost for a significant length of time.

Jacob Trouba is out ’til February as well with an upper-body injury, while Tobias Enstrom (lower body) and Zach Bogosian (lower-body) aren’t expected back until early- to mid-January.

(edit: source)  http://prohockeytalk...t-til-february/




They might settle for a pick rather than moving a bottom 6 player. 

I'm sure Kenny is looking into it.

#2557076 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Babcock to edm as a coach/gm?


Bettman persuades Babock & he goes to coach/gm Edmonton. Toronto is outraged by the news (they already had dibs on babs) and begins to riot.. Vancouver, not wanting to be outdone, would try to outriot Toronto. Both of them trying to top the other eventually causes Canada to implode. All of the hockey players get out in time and are deemed free agents by the league. The best players sign with the worst teams that are left. All goes according to plan and bettman finally has the parity he's always dreamed of. Babcock emerges from the ashes better than ever and coaches the wings to three straight Stanley Cups.

....and then I wake up :P

over 7 mill in the press box.... beaut. 


pretty excited to see jurco in the lineup though!


it's too bad mantha got hurt or he'd probably be in there instead of Nestrasil....


but here's to hoping Nestrasil has a killer debut and cleary gets waived instead! 



LGW! Thank God hockey is back!

#2531219 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by amato on 10 July 2014 - 05:06 PM

Holland: "We're hoping Dan Cleary can bounce back. He'll be good insurance. He'll have to beat people out to be in the lineup."

Anyone buying it? No? Didn't think so..
