In Topic: Rule Changes in the AHL (what the NHL has considered)

The answer is, lose the shootout, keep the tie but award no points. Points only to winning teams, teams would fight hard to win. No gimmicks.

In Topic: McCollum signed.

He's a bit iffy at times, but a decent AHL backup. Doubt he'll ever be anything more than that though.

Its too bad, there were high hopes for him.

Was there a prize? I mean you're obviously going to have no trouble getting laid now but a cash reward seems appropriate as well.

Seriously though it is well deserved, congrats!

In Topic: When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Least they made a move to address a hole. While we did......?????

Hell they're not even going to be good and still addressed their hole on their lineup after trading spezza away.

Completely different situations, Legwand does not make us better. Holland clearly addressed our need on defense, it just didn't work out and sometimes the best move is no move.

In Topic: Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

No, I don't.  Do you have a source confirming that? Because from what I've read he still has serious cognitive limitations as a result of the incident. 
I'm not saying I agree with the number he's asking for in the lawsuit.  I doubt that he would've been some genius financial expert, but it sure sounds like he can't hold a lot of other jobs he would've been qualified for because of his symptoms.  Then throw on top of that his lost earnings from a potential NHL career.  
I agree with frankgrimes, the NHL should've settled this and put this behind them years ago.  Instead they allegedly withheld the $220,000 disability payment Moore was owed under the CBA unless he signed a clause saying he wouldn't sue the NHL or any franchises.  And let this lawsuit drag on and rear its ugly head over and over for 10 years now.  
What a terrible decision by the league.  

It's definitely a black mark on the league. The continued press is certainly something theyd liked to have avoided. Though it's not like it's on CNN or anything.
