#2533832 Flyers agree to terms with Del Zotto

Posted by rick zombo on 07 August 2014 - 09:04 AM

 

Which people feel that way?

 

Perhaps the 29 teams that didn't sign him + the one that desperately needed a player of his type and still waited until over a month into free agency to sign him to a deal (1.3M) that probably acurately reflected his value as a UFA?

 

Who knows exactly what took place with DZ's camp with regards to negotiations with other teams on terms and salary, but the proof of what type of player Del Zotto is, currently, can be found in the contract details and date of signing IMO.

 

But, like I said, IMO.




#2533564 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

People need to stop pointing to these "escalating contracts" and suggesting we are headed to another lockout.  Every player in the league could sign to the league minimum ($550,000 or whatever it is now) and it would have a "zero" impact on how much cash ends up going to the players.  Scenario A - every player in the league signs for $1M, scenario B - every player in the league signs for $10M.  Under both scenarios A & B, total cash compensation to player will be the same...that's how the CBA works.  Player contracts are simply used to determine how the player's share of revenues is divided amongst the player group.


Well aside from the fact that if you paid each player one million you wouldn't hit the cap floor and ten each would be way over the cap. You have to look at the fact that each player ISNT paid equally. And contracts like this DO drive up other salaries. So come time for a new cba they will definitely say the players make too much money again, and budda boom budda Bing, another lockout

Now the glass and boards at the JLA can sleep easy knowing that Sammy won't be around to hurt them anymore.

Posted by ben_usmc on 20 July 2014 - 10:17 AM

The Red Wings have announced the dates for the 2014 Prospects Tournament and Training Camp. Does anyone have advice for attending the events, and is anyone thinking of going to either of the events this year?

#2532071 preds prospects Viktor Arvidsson and Kevin Fiala shootout moves

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 14 July 2014 - 06:24 PM

So what? I don't care...wrong board.

Trying to compare sizes with Jurco's moves? Shootout skills won't turn your franchise into a contender, I'm afraid :lol:

 

Hey now PredsFan is one of our favorite non Wings fan first.

#2531142 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 July 2014 - 04:11 PM

I seriously think Holland is becoming my most hated person in sports.
 
Actually, he is my most hated person in sports.
 
My roomate is from Nigeria and has watched his first ever hockey games (about 10) with me last season. He laughs that Quincey and Cleary are re signed. 
 
The fact that he understands that these players shouldn't be on the team but Holland doesn't says alot.


It's all part of a bigger plan to package Quincey Cleary and andersson for stamkos....

Trade Weiss and Kindl for Edler (they will need a center when after they trade Kesler) and sign Richards and Stralman.
 
Zetterberg,Datsyuk,Franzen
Nyquist,Richards,Tatar
Jurco,Sheahan,Callahan
Abdelkader,Helm,Miller
Ferraro
 
Kronwall,Stralman
DeKeyser,Edler
Smith,Ericsson

I'm sorry, but even the video games would laugh at that offer.
