#2533246 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by number9 on Today, 12:44 AM

Not saying Tatar is a money guy, but he's been up and coming for years for the wings and has always been held back, this is a good show of faith. Hopefully he hangs around longer than happy face.

I believe he is a key player on this squad.  He brings so much energy each night, and can score from multiple spots.  He isn't afraid to go to the hard spots and is good in low.  He has top speed and a knack for making key plays.  Good signing.

$7M? Overpayment.... No more than $1.5M per please. Maybe $5M for the term.


I don't think 2.3M/yr is overpayment. That third year could end up being a bargain.


Although Holland is terrific with his RFA signings (see: Sheahan, Riley) so I wouldn't be shocked at 1.5M per either.

The term is perfect for both sides. Both sides will get to see what they have in 3 years.

For some reason, going by the topic title I thought this was going to be some kind of Game of Thrones related thread.



There's no reason it can't be.

#2532623 Dekeyser/Tatar status update

Posted by dirtydangles on 20 July 2014 - 11:20 AM

Kindl's gonna go on waivers cause they can't trade him and Smith will get 2nd PP time.

Then Kindl goes to a couple teams in the west and improves greatly - then Holland desperately trades a 1st round pick at the trade deadline for him and then Kindl stinks up the joint here again and gets re-signed for 4.25mill.

#2532418 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by ben_usmc on 17 July 2014 - 08:45 PM

I am not a huge fan of Babcock the last few years, but that was a great interview today.  It didn't sound like he was willing to commit to Cleary and accepted they may have dead money on the books.  He also sounded confident about an extension.

There is no easy schedule in professional sports.

#2519396 NHL 15 Getting New Commentators: Doc and Edzo *sigh

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 May 2014 - 11:31 AM

How difficult would it be to get each team's actual announcers on the game? Genuinely curious? Is that even possible?

would love to have Ken and Mick on a game.

I remember reading somewhere that EA stated doing the commentary is the most difficult and expensive aspect of developing a sports title, that's why it's been Gary and Bill for the last 7 years or so unchanged.


I for one support this entirely and i'm pretty excited about the change. I am a GM for a League Gaming team and play at least 1,500 online games per year, I compete in organized OTP leagues so I definitely overplay the series. Hearing the same commentary for the last 7 years has pretty much forced me to turn it off in the options menu entirely. While i'm not thrilled about Eddie being here, the rest don't much bother me and it's a much needed change. 

#2531673 Tomas Jurco's Ridiculous New Stick Trick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 11 July 2014 - 06:33 PM

It's a neat trick, but...

[cranky old man] I'd rather see him out there at the end of practice working on picking the top corner, or firing slapshots or something [/cranky old man]


which admittedly he may have been doing before or after this video.  It's just that stuff like that is cool I guess but has zero usefulness in a game, other than improving his general hand eye coordination.   I'm more impressed by a kid grinding it out after practice firing puck after puck.

Holland coming back from his obvious brain damage could be our big off season acquisition.

Would be awesome if we could get Bylsma or Melrose.  .

Market value?  How dare he!

If I was him and I just saw what Quincey got I think I'd ask for 6+ million, the same goes for DeKeyser, no way I'd sign for less than KFQ if I'm him.

He already said he wants market value on this contract. So like I said, no problem with trading Tatar for green.
