Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black

I like what Dallas has done. I've always been a fan of Horcoff's game. He's a good player who was paid like a great player and became hated because of that contract. Horcoff plays heart and soul plus he should be able to show Seguin how to be a pro. The Stars now have Seguin, Horcoff, Peverley, and Fiddler down the middle. Eakin could figure in there, too. They could end up with 1 top line and 3 3rd lines in the end. They'll be able to move Benn back to the wing where he's familiar.

The Stars have a plan now. Time will tell if it's a good plan, but at least it's a plan.

Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?

Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black

Montreal gets softer, older, and smaller all in 1 move! I loved Danny while he was in Philly, but his last 2 years with us were brutal. Briere is still a quality guy for the PP, but he is the drizzling shits at even strength.

Philadelphia locks up G for 8 more years at 8.25 million per. Expensive, but that is the price for a 25 year old world class talent and also buying his first 6 UFA years.

Now if only our retard GM doesn't trade him before his NMC kicks in like he did to recently extended players like he did to Richards, Carter, and JvR.....

Flyers are also expected to either sign Ray Emery or swing a trade for Jaro Halak. I prefer Halak if it doesn't cost Couturier, Laughton, or a Schenn... but otherwise I'd welcome Emery back and hopefully one of he or Mason builds off their 2013 seasons and becomes a formidable #1. I am still pissed at Mason's play for us last year, though. Because of him getting hot during the last 2 weeks of the season, we missed out on at least a top 7 pick. Bastard.

A lot of speculation that Clarkson, Weiss and ... Matt Cooke will all be Leafs in the next few days.

Cooke I still hate you.

Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black

I have a feeling Toronto or Calgary will sign Weiss to a retarded contract.

I am guessing 4/22 at 5.5 per. Because of these CBO's there is a lot of cap space floating around and there are really not any top flight UFA'a out there to spend it on except for Horton.

The 4 year term is fine, but Weiss is worth no more than 4.5 he has never even broken 65 points for fucks sake.

I am kind of glad we blew our load on Lecavalier because god knows we would be in on Weiss. Yeah, Lecavalier will be 38 when the deal ends (eventhough I am convinced he'll waive his NMC and be dealt back to Tampa for the final year of his deal to finish the his career). I would rather have 33-year old Lecavalier at 4.5 than 30-year old Weiss at 5.0+. Yeah Vinny isn't a great 1st line option anymore, but he is still a great top 6 guy and 4.5 reasonable considering what other top 6 guys who have hit UFA make.

I don't think the Leafs buy out Grabo to give Weiss 5.5 million.

Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black

Pfft, we used both of our CBO's to save 13 million in cap space.. 2 weeks later we used 10 of that of Streit (a terrible deal that I hate, fuck you Holmgren) and Lecavalier (1 year too long, but I'm happy with it)

You and I both know Toronto isn't gonna sit with idle hands and do nothing with this new cap space. I know this isn't Burke calling shots anymore, but they're gonna give someone a fucked up contract or two. That is not an indictment of Nonis, but that is what the market will dictate.

Toronto now has almost 25,000,000 is cap space heading into Day 1 of UFA.... they are gonna spend at least 15 of it or take on some salary via trade

Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black

The point is, there's no point in buying out one bad contract to a skilled player to give the same money to a different guy. If they really wanted to do that they would have just kept Grabo and bought out JML.

We all know Holmgren is terrible at managing money.

Matt Cooke is the man. I wouldn't mind him back on the Pens if the price was right, but i won't lose any sleep over it anyhow.

I'm totally content with Shero standing pat today. He's done what he needed to do and that's resign Kunitz, Dupuis, Malkin and Letang. I'm fine with him waiting to build a better team at the deadline like he typically does every year.

Edit - Scuderi coming back to Pittsburgh

Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black

This thread better be active today...

Anyway, Flyers sign Ray Emery. So they have Mason and Emery, it'll be awfully amusing if the year when they go into the year with probably the weakest goalies they've had on paper in a while are the ones that actually finally clean up their goalie situation. Emery had a good year backing up Crawford last year, we shall see.

Looks like the Red Wings are going to sign Alredsson. I hope Ottawa boos his ass out of the building but they probably won't. Toronto still will though .
