Bring in Loiselle or Poulin as assistant GMs?

Yesterday, 05:40 PM

Leafs just fired their Co GMs and Loiselle is considered a cap guru, so maybe he could help us with an outside perspective.

Gretzky maybe part of a Seattle Investors Group

Man If I were Canadian this would piss me off like hell, the great one should be lobbying for Canadian teams not US teams. Also I know the guy is extremely rich but like Lemieux he is not a billionaire, so he would need a lot of investors just to finance the arena, player salaries, stuff...I don't think this is a good idea at all.

 


The Post states that Gretzky's group is one of three trying to get a team to the Pacific Northwest, though it's not known if the method would be to buy an existing franchise or set up an expansion team.

 

Why not use relocation it would be easier for all the involved parties


Calgary gets Brandon Bollig for a 3rd pick

Damn it, -a third rounder for Bollig ? That's nothing McGrattan, Westgarth and Bollig holly s*** that's a fourth line


Vancouver STH renewals below expectations

I think this is a good thing for Benning and Linden, it shows the organisation that they better fix this team or else their ridiculous high ticket prices aren't going to go over well with a majority of the fanbase there. If I were a Canuck I'd just buy a STH cheap and resell it for twice or triple the pricetag. But man going from waiting list to an exhausted list in only one year is wow.


Avalanche are taking Ryan O'Reilly to club-selected arbitration

Anyway this screams for some question:

1. what does "club selected" mean?

2. argueing against ROR after this season uh oh not very well done by the Avalanche. If I were him it would piss me off endlessly and I'd tell my agent to get me out of here as soon as possible (sign the shortest possible contract and become UFA).

 

does this also mean that ROR has to sign whatever offer the Avalanche are presenting him with?

 

Questions over questions the offseason just got a bit more interesting leaguewide.
