There goes our cap room...

Thanks for stringing us along, Bryan, you piece of ****.

And a special thank you to the GM with special needs, John Ferguson Jr. I hope he burns in hell.

What exactly is his problem? Guess he really wants to wait til the last possible second before actually signing the thing so the NTC takes effect immediately. Cause JFJ has a deal all lined up and is just waiting for him to ink it to send the fax announcing the trade to the NHL. He's got assistants practizing all week long on faxing as quickly as possible, just in case they only have a few seconds to send it in prior to the NTC taking effect. Ridiculous!

LOL! :biglaugh:

There is a god!

At least we have a great 1-2 punch with Kaberle and McCabe. And they'll be a great tandem for the next 4 yrs!

All we have to do now is grab Elias, and a depth defensemen (McKee/Skrastins/Numminem) and let our rookies play.

joolzie 06-28-2006 07:16 PM

I'd like it to be different, cheaper, shorter, all that stuff. But it's not, and I'm not going to slit my wrists over it.

He's the devil we know, the bird in hand, blah blah. I'm ok with it.

Wait...wait.

You have 7.6 million tied up in Sundin, 4.25 in Kaberle, 5.75 in McCabe, and you want to sign ELIAS?!

Let me guess, you want to trade for Pronger too, and create some kind of 5 man super-team.

:eek:

Sundin is a $6.3 million dollar cap hit.

The good news is our goaltender costs $1.5 million, and really, all the positions on our team are filled. We're just looking to upgrade, and still have a fair bit of money to do so.

Elias is nothing but a pipe dream though.

I don't know about you but your team isn't looking too good soon either. 7 Million in Luongo, 6 Million in Naslund, 3.5 Million in Olhund, add in both Sedins, Jovo (if resigned) plus the other numerous players needing to be signed. Toronto and Vancouver are same situation.

Edit: And Cloutier at 2.5 Million until he's traded.

Damn contracts.

Yah, cause I was the guy who just claimed my team was gonna sign Elias? :dunno:

I'm aware of the Canucks cap situation, thanks.

Shoalzie 06-28-2006 07:26 PM

Toronto: No Pronger for you! ;)

In a related piece of news, TMLSE will be giving all season ticket holders a free Toronto Maple Leafs noose for the home opener.

kaberle-mccabe is a great tandem though... grab a strong #3 via mckee or skrastins and we're set imho.

I think that the Leaf's just went back to plan A, which was to go after McKee. Pronger was a nice thought there for a few days...

Sundin is making around 6 million, not 7.6.
