#2197678 Stamkos Re-Signs With Lightning

Posted by BostonBruinsDan1924 on 10 July 2011 - 10:10 AM

The player is paid 2/3 of his remaining salary, but the average cap hit is only 1/3 of his salary.

Lecavalier's buyout would be almost non-existent capwise for the next five years, and then would jack up to around his current level around 2017-18 to 2019-20, before dropping to about $2.4m for the remaining years until 2028-29.

It could make it tight around 2018 cap-wise, but it certainly works as a short-term solution to clear up space for Stamkos.


This thread is about Stamkos...am I correct on this? Why are you talking about Lecavalier again?

I say we go after Stamkos, offer him $7.835M, and give Tampa our 4 first round picks since we'll be at the bottom of the draft pool and be done with it. We have the 7th deepest prospect pool in the league, so it wouldn't hurt us any. Tampa doesn't have the cash to match any offer nor do they have any kind of assets.

Hockey Prospectus ranks Bruins' prospect pool seventh in NHL

I'd like to see Stamkos play here, however, Savard would have to retire if he's not making any progress on recovering from his concussion which free's up $7M...few prospects and maybe a draft pick or 2. We have more than the reported $8.7M in cap space...team president Cam Neely and GM Peter Chiarelli could wheel and deal for him while Tampa s***s all over it's self trying to match the offer. To many GM's are scared s***less to pull off such a bold move...that's the message between the lines. Call me crazy but it beats watching players pass right by you with out the GM taking a second look or settling for a Commodore 64 lol ;) Just saying...

Stamkos will be wearing the Winged Wheel next season. Posted Image


LMAO I want what your smoking. It will never happen...Kenny doesn't have the money along with players or draft picks to pull it off.


#2196781 Tardif signs with Boston

Posted by BostonBruinsDan1924 on 06 July 2011 - 06:52 AM

Tardif will fit in just fine in our system and I'm sure he'll bring the physical grinding game with him. The west is known for playing a finesse style of game while the east plays a more physical street hockey type of game. We saw the physical style from the Bruins ware down the non-durable Vancouver Schmucks and render the Sedin sisters useless.

Stamkos is to young to be holding out for big money...sign a 2-3 year contract...4.5 per...Score 50 two of those three years then you are a franchise type kid...right now you are a young budding talent. Your first year was a dud, and showing signs...but if you want Vinny type money...you need to prove that you deserve it...at this point in his career, I don't even think Vinny is worth that much money anymore...

Chara has played a huge role in bringing Lord Stanley's Cup back to the city we call The Hub of Hockey. I think his numbers will speak for themselves versus the other guys.

While Chara wins the Norris Trophy, Thomas will be completing the hardware hat trick with winning the Vezina Trophy.


#2187830 Wings unlikely to sign Osgood/Draper

Posted by BostonBruinsDan1924 on 22 June 2011 - 08:29 AM

If Philly does ink Bryzgalov to a 5 year/$5.5M deal then 1 of Philly's goalies, or both, will end up on eBay at a great price. One option to replaceing Osgood lol.


#2186236 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Vancouver Riots After Canucks Loss in Game 7

Being born and bread in Boston we are brought up not to like the Canadians and blah blah blah. Vancouver on the other hand...I don't know what to say other than you guys are a bunch of freaking idiots. There is no excuse to trash your city, a lesson I figured they learned in 1994 at the hands of the New York Rangers. I guess not.

On a more positive note...you wont see the Bruins dump players to stay under the salary cap like the Chicago Blackhawks did after they won the Cup last year. The city of Vancouver and it's hockey organization is a joke plus an embarrassment to the NHL. We're all passionate about our teams but s***...this is totally uncalled for.
