In Topic: Kane case headed to grand jury

25 September 2015 - 12:51 AM


The case is a disaster. I don't understand how any of this happens.


Not to get all James Patterson on everyone, but if that was a REAL bag from this case that was actually processed.... it took someone very high up to get that out and I wonder if said person hasn't threatened the lawyer with physical harm to himself or his family.... And the way he's thrown them under the bus while backing down seems sketchy...I dunno, with as much money as the owner/team/NHLPA/Kane stands to lose on this case... it smells really, REALLY bad...  Even if it WAS the lady or her family getting access, what does that say about other cases investigated by Buffalo PD?  How many other evidence bags come up missing?

Wait a minute, how could the lady have gotten the evidence bag from police custody???  Unless she stole it while they were initially bagging evidence?

I don't know you, but I wish you luck. 


Have you considered reaching out to a minor league team?  They might be more inclined to hear you out than a big-league team.

Add Larkin to that line on the power play, DRZL

Fo shizzle


This deserved more attention than it received.


Actually 4 is composite. 2 is prime though, trade Smith.




In Topic: Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Not only that, but $19M isn't an amount to turn your nose up.  If he gets seriously injured or otherwise unable to perform in two years, he'll be glad he signed this contract instead of holding out for $6-8M.


Think about it...  Let's say the alternative was playing under the RFA amount for two years and then signing a big contract:


2015-2016 $3,000,000  Two-year contract at lower rate to get to UFA.
2016-2017 $3,000,000  Two-year contract at lower rate to get to UFA.
2017-2018 $7,750,000  (big contract, presuming #'s keep rising and his performance increases) UFA

2018-2019 $7,750,000  UFA

So that's a total of 4-years, $21,500,000. Even if he signed a two-year, $6M contract - giving him the quickest out to UFA status - he's risking about $12M (difference between what he'd have at the end of the 16-17 season and what he's going to have now at the end of the 18-19 season) on the chance that he doesn't have a career-ending injury or otherwise harm his chances at a big contract.

So, yes, he maximizes his salary ceiling by signing a two-year deal, but he also maximizes his salary floor by signing a four-year deal.  Risk/Reward.
