I've been listening to George Malik on soundcloud, and he asks Kenny, prior to Stamkos re-signing with Tampa, about any big free agents he might be talking to and he says to KH, "not to pull a Jim Benning on you and try to get you fined..." haha. but seriously, seems a bit harsh. Do you now how much BC hydro he could've bought with that money? ;)


1 week worth

Come tomorrow they are the big fish now. In hindsight it would have been nice for Stamkos to wait until July 3rd to sign with Tampa while we cleaned up in the 2nd tier guys for cheaper.


If he waited till July 3 and didn't straight up tell us no, then we wouldn't have signed anyone and gotta completely screwed. They may be the big fish now but I doesn't make them worth anywhere near stamkos salary. Not saying they won't get it. Just saying they aren't worth the money they want.

Few more names to hit the FA list tomorrow: Korpikoski (EDM), Carle (TB), Boll (CBJ), Seidenberg (BOS), Greene (LA), Jackman (NSH).
 
All being bought out.


No to all of them

With stamkos getting 8.5X8 how can okposo, backes etc... ask for over $6 million? I don't get it


#2680430 Stamkos to... Tampa

To be fair we don't have a spare Shea Weber lying around as a trade chip.


We don't have 1 let alone a spare


#2680304 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by Euro_Twins on 29 June 2016 - 04:51 PM

Montreal is the clear winner. Watch how much p.k's numbers decline playing for trashville. Weber will help get the habs to the conference finals easily.

Unless this is a sign and trade then f*** Steven Stamkos! He is now joined the ranks of the Olsen twins in Minnesota.


No. Not even close. They dragged their decision on for a week making teams miss out on plan b and c meanwhile leading Holland to believe he was coming here just to go to Minnesota. Stammer re-upped with his current team before free agency even started

So, ummm, Brad Stuart's gonna be available!


So what? You really want a 36 year old that isn't very good anymore and can't even play a full season let alone put up 20 points?

How do they let Elliot go for a 2nd round pick but then demand Larkin for Shattenkirk?

I say due to the 35 years old rules, MAX that we should sign player is till he's 36... after that go year per year. No more stupid contracts à la Francine, Z, Errorson


The contract has to be signed AFTER he turns 35. So a 34 year old can sign a 5 year deal and retire early without cap implications


#2679304 Detroit trades Datsyuk to Arizona

Surely Holland called Chayka ahead of the draft day trying to unload Datsyuk's contract. But on the draftday Chayka confirmed that it was him proposing this trade to Holland as he want Chychrun who was still available and who they even considered to pick at #7. Other teams above us may not have been willing to trade down so he approached Holland with this deal. Chayka seemed like the obvious choice for us and from what I heard we wanted him. But granted, I don't know it and there were rumours heading in both ways. It doesn't really matter in the end. Chayka obviously wanted the guy and he would have get picked soon...if not by us soon after.


If we signed stamkos on July 1 does Holland get any credit or no? Just seems like you're really trying to shovel crap down everyone's throat to prove your point

First, how the hell do you know who initiated trade talks? For all you know, Holland could have approached Chayka with the proposal, taking complete advantage of the 27 year old GM... Secondly, how the hell do you know Holland had any intention in taking Chychrun? I would agree that he seemed like the logical choice, but for all we know, there was something about the kid that our scouts didn't like, and we weren't going to take him regardless of there being a trade or not...


Impossible. Holland had no hand in the trade. He just said yes. Holland got lucky....

Give Kenny credit when it's due. He's been taking a lot of heat around here lately. Nice to see him getting some praise for a change. Hopefully it's a good sign of things to come

Love the deal. Can't see how anyone would hate it. This will be a LeftWinger approval.


Not frankgrimes approved though
