In Topic: Moving Jimmy Howard

It would be beyond retarded to move Jimmy before we have a solid and reliable backup for Mrazek.


Not to mention that Jimmy is still better than Mrazek, so I don't understand why you'd want to move him other than to dump his salary.

The kid won't be made fun of.  Hell, has anyone even been around a school lately? 


The PC stuff is so out of control (in schools especially) that by the time the kid is old enough for school it'll probably be a felony punishable by death to make fun of anyone or say anything that might offend them.

Abby is one of the few guys who I won't mind if he gets what people view as an "overpayment".


He is a pivotal part of the team and always works his ass off.

At first I was surprised by the high salary amount.   But thinking about it, it is right about where it was projected he would be paid, just a bit higher.


People are forgetting to factor in the fact that the Canadian dollar has plummeted over the last couple years and is only worth about 80% of the US dollar. 


And as already been pointed out, Ontario is taxed up the ass, so factoring in those two thing, he is making just north of 4 mil per season average.  It was predicted he would set coaching salary records, by getting about 4 mil.

I spoke with one of the engineers.  He said they are going to add an interesting safety measure. 


If you are going too damn slow, or tailgating for no reason, or otherwise acting like an *******, a giant metal elbow will swing down from above and knock your car off the bridge and into the water.
