In Topic: Holtby Asking for $8M

You're probably right, but still too high in my opinion.  Club is starting at $5.1M, so you know it's going to come up quite a bit from there.  Midpoint in two positions would be $6.55...Carey Price money (albeit signed at a different point in time).

Umm...no....didn't add the "her"...there are already 3 women (players) in the HHOF and a 4th to be added later this year.


Edit: also, the NHL doesn't run the HHOF.

Players are making more money today than prior to the first lockout....there should be no debating that fact.  Sure, there may have been the odd player (Lidstrom) making as much as the highest paid players today, but team payrolls from 2003-2004 to today have increased by about 50-55%

Kohl center is owned by the university.  It is extremely rare for the name on a building to represent ownership.  The name on a building normally indicates that person or company paying naming rights (normally requires annual payments over the duration of agreement....if payment stops, name comes down).  When it comes to university buildings, the names on the buildings generally indicate that they have been named after a significant donor, which is the case here.  Mr. Kohl donated $25 million.

Due to the bump, I read some of the earlier comments in this thread, specifically with the issues around Pronger being eligible for the HHOF even though he isn't "technically" retired.


To be clear, retirement is not part of the eligibility criteria.  The actual requirement is as follows:  "Must not have played a game in a professional or international hockey game during any of the three (3) playing seasons prior to his or her election."
