I stopped voting altogether now. I was gonna get a Datsyuk cover if he won, but now that he's out of the running, i put a down payment on the special edition NHL 13. I don't want anything to do with either of Rinne or Malkin. Stanley cup schwag is cool though...
I'm just going to print out the Dats cover and slip it in the sleeve of my copy.
Bruins don't have the cap space. Rangers have enough high priced contracts as it is. The Devils have crazy money troubles. The Kings will likely not have the cap space in order to sign their players. The Blues will have space but a lot of contracts to sign. The Predators are a gigantic question mark considering they put all their eggs into one basket and failed miserably. The Flyers have no cap space to sign anyone.
They may be "contenders", but the Red Wings have the best shot out of all of them. You are getting too pessimistic about it.
This. I don't know why people keep insisting the Wings are doomed. Not to mention, how many players make $10mil a year? Are Suter and Parise on par with those players? Starting price will not be $20mil, guaranteed.
I was in the office on LGW when I heard all the chatter from JR and Milbury....I had to walk out to the TV to see if they were going to drop the gloves or not. Milbury is a *****....and he shakes little kids.
