#2620563 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

I'd be happy with waiving Andersson anyway.


#2620531 Taylor Pyatt Announces Retirement

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 14 July 2015 - 04:59 PM

Franzen cough Franzen cough

If *cough* Franzen retires *cough* then we get stuck with *cough* a very large cap recapture penalty. *cough* *cough*

So *cough* that's a terrible *cough* idea.*cough *

Franzen isn't going to cause us to lose any kids, if he can't play very much this season, he'll go back on ltir and problem solved.
Moving him would be stupid because on top of the fact that we'd have to package something decent with him to get someone to take him there's also the chance he doesn't want to sit on ltir for another team and he retires and we're stuck with the recapture for him. He's been a lifelong wing, so keeping his cap hit off our books isn't a problem as long as he's here.

Whether or not you want franzen gone, here, whether you think he can play or not, Taking that unnecessary risk, as well as giving up assets to get rid of him is simply dumb.

Anyways.
I'm done posting in thus thread as long as it keeps going on this get rid of Franzen at all cost path.

Noones going to change their opinion on it, and some don't even effin read or consider what then other person says.
..
So have fun with this pointless Franzen talk.

#2620452 Ryan O’Reilly Charged With Impaired Driving

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 14 July 2015 - 02:23 AM

I cant say I am surprised. Everything about him screams gigantic ego and huge sense of entitlement. Its too bad Buffalo gave him that huge contract. When a person who already has an enhanced sense of self has that feeling validated, it can lead to bad things. Hopefully I'm wrong, or if not, hopefully he gets a reality check and wakes up.

Just because he demanded more money than he's probably worth, doesn't mean he's an egotistical entitled brat.

He's a really good player, hes a 2way center who's great on the defensive side and produces offensively like a lower end #1c/ high end #2c. Teams around the league are finally realizing how vital two way play is. Especially in the playoffs, and these guys are going to start getting paid like they higher end offensive guys have historically been over paid.

I don't think he's worth that much now but with the cap continuously rising were going to see more and more guys with cap hits over 10m, and after a few years, as long as he continues to play well, and develops a bit more offensive punch, hell be a bargain.

True, there is only one. But that one is so powerful, there are 10 of it. And each one is more powerful than the other nine combined.


That doesn't make sense.

#2620410 Ryan O’Reilly Charged With Impaired Driving

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 13 July 2015 - 07:59 PM

Less than two weeks after signing a seven year contract extension worth $52.5-million, Buffalo Sabres centre Ryan OReilly has been charged with impaired driving after a pickup truck collided with a Tim Hortons in Lucan, Ont.
 
Per AM980

The only way this sentence could be more Canadian, is if it said "sorry aboot that" somewhere in there.

I don't feel overly obliged to defend Cleary's status och capacity but since I suggested him in a trade:
*Yes, Cleary is an UFA. But he still wants to play. Doubt he'd say no if packaged. And he can still perform, he's not walking with a cane (I am right now). To add, the dude can still play, when healthy.
*The Jets want Mantha. I don't blame them. A little sluggish, but at best a Hossa-type scorer. Sneak in Cleary and/or Smith.
 
I would also have to admit that my last wish as regards to the 15-16 season was a little bit fantasy-ish, so take it with a grain of salt.

My fantasy, is for us to trade Alexander semin, Cody Franzen, and joakim andersson for Shea weber.

Brian McGrattan once beat all the halo games on legendary using a broken guitar hero controller.


#2620082 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 July 2015 - 08:06 AM

Remember! Babcock no longer coaches here! ;)

Ha. If babs was still here, and Green did still sign with us he'd end up a $6,000,000 healthy scratch.

:lol:


#2620076 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 July 2015 - 05:30 AM

Wow Goose left some serious money on the table here. He would have gotten much more on the open market

But he wasnt in the open market.

Obviously if he was a ufa He would've gotten more, but he was an rfa an He signed A bridge deal that buys two ufa Years, with the two remaining rfa years. He didn't really leave money on the table, hell be making 5million/yr In his ufa years. That's about Market value for what he's done so far. His playoff performances also changes the Money, had he been scoring at the same Rate in there playoffs as he had during the regular season, he would've gotten more...

He still has quite a bit to prove before he hits ufa.


#2620059 Sharp & Johns to DAL for Daley and Garbut

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 10 July 2015 - 11:03 PM

I don't think Sharp has too much left in the tank, but he's still a somewhat decent 3rd liner. I actually really like Stephen Johns, he seemed to have taken a very large step in his development last year...
Daley and garbut but are decent enough, but the moved doesn't seem to make much sense with the small amount of cap savings this affords them.

I don't think they got fleeced, necessarily because Sharp is not really a top six guy anymore...
Seems like a hockey trade to me.


#2620054 Gustav Nyquist signed 4-Year Deal $4.75 mill AAV

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 10 July 2015 - 10:53 PM

How is 4.25 for the next five years a "horrible, Unmovable contract" because he's 31.
We all know Ericsson didn't play like a top pair defenseman last year, but the year before that he was playing very well, so much So that people were talking about how important Ericsson is to the team when he went down with an injury a couple years back...
He is a good top four dman, and yes serviceable on the top pair, not very good, But serviceable. And he clears the front of the net better than any of our other d, he plays 20+ minutes a night, and for those of you who complain there's not enough fighting, he is our best fighter and the one who's fastest to stick up for teammates.


He makes some bad plays, he could make one bad play in ten games and be completely solid the rest of the time and there would still be people complaining about that one bad play, extrapolating it into worse and worse things...
I get that there has to be a scapegoat so everyone can vent their frustration, and since Quincey was one of our better d last year, and kindl barely played, so it all reverts to Ericsson.

Who didn't even get to fully prepare for the season because his hand/finger injury to the point he could barely grip a hockey stick. Its maddening how fickle some of us fans can be.
