Thanks for the update.

On a separate note:
Not to start a referendum on the validity of the contract limitations. However the more I think about it the less I like the idea of the league controlling contract length. Now I get the reasoning behind it, but the league already has a rule about circumventing the cap along with a salary cap. Is it really the commissioners job to protect teams from stupid longterm deals?

I don't think its so much the league protecting the teams, more so giving the lower market teams a fair/better shot at keeping its own players with the incentive of that extra year.

I'm just now getting to the point of familiarity with the people on this site, to where I have to read who's commenting before I read the actual post. It really helps me figure out the context of the conversation.

There's a handful of posters where this is unnecessary, because their personalities are so strong it bleeds through the text.

Wish those wild fires in Canada would get put out. The air here in Minnesota has reached unhealthy levels because of it.

This is the first I'm hearing of this...
I don't watch too much t.v. and I don't really have a news source I go to on the internet.

You got a good link thatll fill me in?

Also it was clearly noticable that the team had serious "psychological" problems. Strange penalties, arguing with the refs, they just didn't feel right. Especially late in the season (last 3 games) it played a part in them missing the playoffs. I would attribute a major part of this to lack of leadership, be it the captain or more probably mostly the coach.
*However* i do feel that they are sharp enough to get a playoff spot if they straighten up and red meatball Kessel goes bezerk with 1 of the 2 top line centers in the league.
Theyre not the wings, but i'll keep tabs on their games for sure.

Its the captains job to reel his team on on the ice.
Sidney Crosby, for all the talent that he has, is not a good captain.
The way matt Cooke, James Neal, and a multitude of other players on those teams that would go out of their way to hurt players...
Its on the captain.
And when you see Crosby whining and crying to the refs, diving, and doing stupid stuff it sets the tone for the rest of your players...

Toews isn't even a top 10 player in the league, no way should he be making over 9 million, let alone 13 million.
