Reality is that we're gonna be stuck with Ericsson for the rest of his damn contract, because stupid Kenny will rather keep him than admit what he did with signing him to that deal...

Note: Schmeling was married to a czech actress, had a jewish manager and refused the Nazi order to split. They exploited him for their s*** like many other sports- and show stars, but he was never one of them. Just a good guy, he partially paid for Joe Louis funeral too, if I recall correctly. :thumbup:

Offer sheets don't happen because they don't work.


Seriously? In basketball they happen...and they work. Not too often, but a certain share.

No rules for UFA's. For RFA's there are some. As long as a term offers the minimum increase required-then it becomes a qualifying offer. Most of the rules cover if other teams offer your RFA's and what they have to pay to the current team. I am not aware of a max limit, just a minimum to protect your interests. But I am not a CBA guru or even a fan.......


Ok, thanks for the reply. Given the fact that most interesting centers are RFAs, I'd say Kenny should at least drive up their prizes. ;)

I have a general question, which I haven't found on my (rather short, I admit ;)) research on the net....how is the cap system in the NHL in terms of maximum contract levels? What I mean is...I know more about NBA CBA than NHL CBA, and in the NBA, you couldn't sign your rookie coming of a 1 M last year to 10 M/Y on his next contract, because there would be a maximum he could get which would be lower. See http://www.cbafaq.co...larycap.htm#Q16 to be specific.

If you could sign let's say Forsberg to 7 M even though he is coming from under 1 M...then that might be an even better option than Stamkos. ;)



To repeat my question from April 23rd...can anyone answer this? :)
