In Topic: Curtis Glencross regrets taking hometown discount

Yesterday, 10:00 PM

 
Why would they regret it?  They got good production, for less than market value, and then traded him for futures.  They got everything they wanted out of the deal. 
 
I don't think there's a problem signing and hometown discount.  But if I were going to do the organization a solid and take less money, you bet your ass I'd want a no trade clause.  No way would I do them that favor without some insurance for myself. 


That was my first thought, if he wouldn't have been traded I have a feeling he wouldn't have regretted taking the discount, or at least he wouldn't have said anything about it.

I would've regretted it too, take less money so you don't have to uproot your family, find new living arrangements, etc just to have them ship you away anyway.

I don't like pre-season football. 

I'm always excited for the first game, then by the third game, I just don't care anymore.

I dont see the comparison at all. Lashoff was a #7 d-man who filled in when guys were hurt, E plays on the top pairing.

Its just people sensationalizing Ericssons struggles.

In Topic: Dan Cleary re-signing still possible?

Yeah, No takers for Zidlicky, Gustavesson, Weiss, Franson, Stempniak. Not saying the first 3 would any great pickup, but I feel like all those guys should be able to find a spot. Seems like a weird offseason. Maybe other GMs have taken up Holland's tiring kicking methods.

I keep seeing Franson to Buffalo rumors.
I'm also a little shocked that zidlicky hasn't signed a one year deal somewhere, there were a few rumors about him at the beginning of free agency, but its calmed down quite a bit since then.
