Interesting

Chicago is dumping alot of their 3/4th line depth. The same depth that contributed to their run to Lord Stanley's Cup. It will be very interesting to see how they cope with this.

A lot of what made that team unstoppable has been frittered away.

Things I'm gonna predict:

Dan Ellis to Philly. Him tag teamed with Leighton will officially lock down the 'Nashville North' title

Chicago will trade away more salary. they have 13 players signed for 55 million. Insane. If I'm Chicago I'm calling Nashville and making any offer I can for cheap 4th liners, Laakso, and Sulzer. Nashville has plenty of depth in Milwaukee and can move players to Chicago for picks and prospects.

Is it just me or does it feel like every team is getting worse?

There are some big retirements this year and players leaving, and then the trades are bottom-feeders getting a good team's depth. These trade might be a lose/lose because a guy like Byfuglein cant be a top line player and it hurts Chicagos other lines. Even the free agent signings today are the stereotypical overpaid players, but this year those players suck. Gonchar is the best player and he is paid more than Volchenkov and will likely decline.

Im actually glad our free agent signing is only 700k and someone we never heard of.

1.1 for Jody Shelly
1.65M for Derek Boogaard

The rich teams are burning through cap space and not even getting a player.

I'm just waiting for the Olli Jokinen back to Calgary rumors to crystallize.

Hamhuis apparently on the verge of signing with the canucks for 6 years, 30 million.

Anyone still complaining that we didn't get that deal done? This is Wade Redden bad. 3 million overpaid, and for six years?!

I'm glad he got paid ... he deserved it ... but he doesn't deserve the amount of $ he's getting

Hamhuis' contract is just plain laughable. My Oilers got Foster, though!
