Not even, "we didn't have enough bullets"?

If he needs that excuse, he'll only need one.

I wonder if Goaliemon still has that pic of Howson holding a gun to his head.

Yes, I couldn't quote correctly-the site must be swamped tonight.

Specifically Leclaire's deal is struck tonight- I am betting.

To go with the Howson at blockbuster theme:

Be Kind, Re-sign.
Just great! We're a Blockbuster store in a Netflix world!

So...out of curiosity....what is the penalty for not meeting the salary cap minimum? I thought I read that it was draft picks...but not sure if there's a formula?

I think we'll be reaching...We're at $23.748 and need to get to $40.7 minimum. That's basically $17M to spend...maybe RJ and PL take $8M...so $9M left. Assuming the expected "No thank you's" from Redden and Hossa, we might be able to nickel & dime our way up with a Morrison, a couple of FA D-men and Fritche's.

Its not an issue. We still have to sign Umberger, LeClaire and Fritsche. Even with cheap free agents, we'll make the floor, the question is, by how much and what position we put ourself for next off-season.

Why trade Brule with only 90 minutes to go until free agency?

G-d, I wish. I want Vermette badly, Redden would fix a lot, and I so want to see Brule succeed even if it's not with us. I just doubt it'll happen so long as Ottawa continues to labor under the delusion that they're a Cup contender.

I keep hearing "noon" on Tuesday, for when free agency begins.

It's closer to thirteen and a half hours. It's noon tomorrow, not midnight tonight.

doesn't start at mid night. Starts at noon. And because we have over 12 hours. I'd like to have that head start at negotiating with those two.
