8 years for a goalie is pretty much a guaranteed terrible deal without even looking at the $ number.

Silver lining for the Capitals is that most of their Eastern Conference -rival team seem to be getting worse aswell.

I literally guffawed when I saw those contract details. And I thought the Vlasic and Oshie contracts would sting near the end.

That Price deal is absolutely terrible. I think given his history with injuries it has the potential to be the worst NHL contract of all time.

Owners have to be planning something for the next CBA to deal with these contracts

The concept of Marleau in a Leafs jersey, or really anything but a Sharks jersey, bothers me.

Bergevin is Crazy.

And that Marleau contract is crazy too.

3rd year with a NMC or NTC, and they have to resign Matthews Marner and Nylander that year.

I am depressed.

That Peluso didn't tool Reaves. I think its a good move to get him to counter their move. #FreeWilly. It's all about getting past the Pens at this point. Eye for an eye. If Wilson can learn to PK, maybe Peluso can as well.

It's like George never left these past few weeks.

Don't kid yourself. Peluso is just not a good hockey player, and i don't think he has the tools to become a good 4th liner. He's a slow-skating lunatic heavyweight fighter that adds nothing to the line-up but an impressive fight card and what comes with that. And when i say impressive, he's taken on pretty much every top fighter there is and hasn't lost a fight in years, and that includes Reaves who some consider the best fighter left in the game. The word lunatic is there because even as someone that considers fighting part of the game, some of his fights are actually tough to watch. He literally beats the guys until the refs decide they've seen enough.

He's the guy you play 5 minutes in a match-up where you want to see someone destroyed. Not the regular 4th liner that sees 10 minutes on most of the games in the regular season.

This thread has outlived its usefulness. Let's take these convos to the roster and general league threads.
