Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

There is an article about it, but I also heard them say this on NHL Network during the draft coverage and such. I think he's getting sick of hearing it, and just wants it to be over. Now he is young so those things are going to get to him more then most players, and I know a few guys who knew/played against him back before his NHL days (the town he's from is like 2 towns away from me, so like 10-15 mins). They said he was immature back then as well, so maybe he just hasn't fully grown up yet and is too immature right now for all the rumors but don't see them going away anytime soon.

Your wrong about Hossa as well, they traded for him at the deadline and then he signed with Detroit in the off-season. What you going on about Bro cha cha.
Yeah i read it wrong, i thought you were talking about deadline trades.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Sundin, Sakic, Bure and Oates make up the HOF class.

First two were locks as far as I'm concerned. Second 2 are kind of surprising, I assumed 1 of them would get in as the 4th with Shanahan getting in as well. Always next year I suppose.

Bure is one of the best pure goal scorers of all time, he put asses in seats. He has waited 7 years to make the HHOF and is long overdue.

Oates was long overdue as well.

Sakic is a first ballot HOFer no questions asked.

However Sundin making the HOF on his first year of eligibility is an absolute joke.

So Justin Schultz signs with with the Edmonton Tankers. Guess he doesn't like winning.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

He wants to be a top 4 defensmen THIS year, and a lot of the teams he was talking to, that wasn't going to happen so part of the reason he signed with them. They still need help on the back end, and a goaltender to even consider them anything but they do have a good young core group to grow with so who knows where they will be in a few years.

I would be shocked if Marty signs anywhere but the Devils, he's hired an agent & is going to test free agency, just can't see him playing for another team. Also Alim, what's the word with Lou, with them signing Schneider to an extension, all but says they are gonna trade Lou. What are they asking for them and where is the most likely spot he'll be headed to, Toronto, back to Florida, or somewhere else?

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

As much as it pains me to say, I think Roberto is traded this off season. It sucks because I would much rather go with the guy who has proven himself in the league for over a decade over a guy with roughly 70 NHL starts to his credit. The return that we could get by trading Schneider would be significantly better than the return we can get by trading Luongo, but that's only because of the length of Lou's contract.

Apparently Toronto has dropped out from the Luongo sweepstakes which is quite mind-boggling. Seems like Brian Burke is content with Reimer as his #1 goalie or maybe he is pursuing Jonathan Bernier. At this point Luongo to Florida seems likely because his family currently lives there, they are an up and coming young contender and he has previous ties there. Also with Jacob Markstrom's knee injuries he looks like he may be a few years away from the NHL. Dale Tallon has shown interest, but Gillis is asking for too much according to him. He wants one of Florida's top prospects and Tallon doesn't want to give one up. Right now they are looking for something in between and I don't think we see a Luongo deal for at least another few days.

The option of sign and trade with Schneider is still wide open however.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Brodeur might be available for the Leafs as well. As odd as that sounds.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

So the Flyers are in serious talks with the Blue Jackets for Rick Nash. According to Panaccio (who is close with the flyers), Columbus general manager Scott Howson is seeking forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier -- or one of them with several other players.

NO! Just please no, this would be a terrible trade. Rick Nash is good sure, but Bryaden Schenn & Sean Couturier are very talented players and very young who can only grow. It's obviously our problem wasn't scoring last year, and the reason we got beat by the Devils is because their forecheck dominated us because our defense are slow, and don't move the puck quick enough. We need better defensemen, not Rick Nash by getting rid of two of our better young players, just a dumb trade if it actually happens, and I'd be very disappointed. Rick Nash is a very good player but I really do see how he would make the Flyers any closer to getting back to the Stanley Cup when our problems are elsewhere, of course a line that saw Giroux & Nash on it would be dangerous but no need to take two major parts of our young core, so hoping the trade won't include them, or it just doesn't happen.

Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Quote:
The Minnesota Wild have landed prized free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, sources told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun. Both deals are worth $98 million over 13 years.

For Parise, the move will be a homecoming after the Minneapolis native spent his first seven seasons with the New Jersey Devils. Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Detroit were among the teams pursuing Parise.

Suter joins the Wild after playing his first seven seasons with the Nashville Predators. The defenseman had received a contract offer of $90 million over 13 years from the Red Wings, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Parise, who will turn 28 years old this summer, has registered 194 goals and 216 assists in 502 career games. He had 31 goals and 38 assists this past season, helping the Devils reach the Stanley Cup Final.

Suter, 27, has collected 38 goals and 200 assists in 542 career games. He had seven goals and 39 assists in 2011-12 en route to garnering All-Star honors.

Suter and Parise both were members of the 2003 draft class. Suter was taken seventh overall by the Predators while Parise went 17th to the Devils.
interesting.
