Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Stick a fork in the Coyotes, if they aren't moving to Pheonix, they're moving somewhere.

It's a shame Paul Allen hates hockey, they'd be welcomed in Portland.

Parade is starting in Pittsburgh now. The city estimated 400,000 people are gonna show.

Maybe it's good move for Teräväinen. He and Sebastian Aho in same team will definitely be good thing for canes.

LOVE it for the Canes.

Francis has done a sneaky good job since taking over.

Had to be done for the Hawks cause they needed to get out from under that albatross.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Gotta be a pretty big gut-punch for Chicago that they've been forced to trade two guys who should've been significant building blocks for the future in Brandon Saad and Teuvo Teravainen just to keep things under the cap.

I'll say it again: As much as I like Corey Crawford and understand how integral he was to their past couple Cup runs, I don't think it's sustainable to be paying him $6 million a year for above-average goaltending. They went through this with Niemi, and rather than pay him, they let him walk and found a cheaper (and better) replacement. Pittsburgh just did the same with Fleury/Murray. Crawford is a good goalie, but if you're choosing between him and depth talent, you let him walk (or in their case, trade him last summer) and trust that you'll be able to find or develop another goalie good enough to ride to the promised land again. Like I said, as good as Crawford is, he's not an elite talent, and it's easier to replace one player than it is to replace four.

What's more amusing is that there is a good chance the Hawks are just gonna use the Bickel money to re-sign Shaw. Then in 1-2 years they'll be scrambling to move Shaw because they over paid him.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

As expected, Umberger is bought out :mark:

People laughed at Hextall when his first move was trading Hartnell for Umberger (I'll admit, I wasn't too happy at the time). Umberger is off the books and save for a million this year and next and clears a roster spot, meanwhile Columbus has been trying to move Hartnell and his 2 years left @ 4.75 mil. Hartnell is obv still a good player, but GG to Hextall for being wise enough to take a temporary hit in return for financial flexibility in the future.

Hextall is the man with a plan god bless him.

No, that's The Brian Kendrick. But I understand how you could confuse the two.

http://nesn.com/2016/06/nhl-trade-rumors-flames-contacted-penguins-about-marc-andre-fleury/

Rumor is that Calgary contacted the Pens about a Fleury trade. As a Pens fan, I would hate to see him go. However they really need the cap space, and considering that Murray just won a cup this would be a smart move.
Penguins have to trade Fleury or they'll lose Murray in the expansion draft. Fleury has a full NMC clause that expires after the time of the draft, meaning if he's still on Pittsburgh's roster, they would be forced to protect him and leave Murray exposed.

Needless to say, they do not want to do that.

Hate the idea, but they better fucking call them the Vegas Knights. :side:
I was listening to a local sports station and they also loved the Vegas Knights name. Still can't believe that Vegas is getting a team. They will have good crowds, TBH, but majority of them will be from the visiting team. And even with that help I still think they will be in low teens for attendance overall with the capacity for hockey at 17,500.

I am just counting down the days till Ken Holland steps down as GM of the Wings and Ilitch opens the vault to pry Yzerman away from the Lighting and bring him back home. Then the glory will return to Hockey Town.

Preds finally resolved the Jimmy Vesey situation, trading him to Buffalo for a third round pick (originally Minnesota's).

:drose


So happy now, but honestly, a much better return than I thought someone would get for UFA rights for someone whose still unproven at the NHL level. Not even a conditional pick either so that's good. Still though, hope he signs with Sabres.

Andersen to Toronto makes a ton of sense.

Good return for Anaheim too.

Re: NHL Draft and Off-season Thread - Hopefully Patrick Kane Doesn't Go Home to Buffalo This Summer Edition

I wonder what this means for Bernier. I assume they'll keep him until the deadline then ship him off to a contender looking for a goaltending depth rental similar to what they did with Reimer.

I will :mark: something fierce if Shanny/Lou manage to trade him this off-season tho.

I like Anderson. I'm not sure I will like how much the Leafs have to sign him for but he's definitely better than Bernier.
