In Topic: Sharks enter training camp with no C or A's

I think why this is so upsetting to people is because they were just signed to extensions a few months prior to all this happening. Its like they were promised everything, agreed to take discounts, and now are being pushed out since do to their lower cap hits and 3 year terms will get a lot back in return.
 
If i'm Coulture or Pav and I am a UFA in a few years, no way I'm resigning with San Jose after I see the way they treats their vets, Marleau has been there for I think 16 years.

the alternative then is to keep status quo and continue to disappoint in the post season for another couple of years. I'm sure the fans would appreciate the class in that... I'm sure everybody understand that this is nothing but business and move on.

I think Sharks management are doing the right thing. Something has got to change in that organization. I dont think it has anything to do with "class" or lack thereof. It is the pragmatic thing to do in a situation like this.

Here is a Swedish documentary on this topic for those of you speaking Russian (or Swedish).

In Topic: Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

How has he acted like he is above the team?  What over the top celebrations?  I've seen him be incredibly excited for a goal but I've never seen him do a dance over a flaming stick or anything.  It sounds like their relationship is actually fine now but Therrien is as much to blame with his handling of Subban and any friction there. 

Therrien is certainly not an uncontroversial coach either, if you care to learn more about it I recommend "Tales of a first round nothing" by Terry Ryan. A very interesting read.

I would also count Subban as an elite defenseman, he may not be as complete as Weber but he is also not as one dimensional as Mike Green. He is definitely a game changer as seen in the series vs the Bruins. I think Subban is much more of a team guy than he is given credit for. He is no Yakupov by any stretch.
