Sometimes doing nothing on July 1st is the best thing you can do...
True enough, but not when the Canucks have some major holes to fill, particularly on D and on the wing. Kesler needs some consistent wingers. Raymond is hurt to start the year, and i think samuelsson is too lazy. Not to mention one of our best offensive defensemen is gone.
It's not so much the money but the years that frightens me. Outside of Richards, Ehrhoff, and maybe a couple of others no one deserves 4 year deals with inflated prices due to teams trying to reach the floor. I hope Dallas "buys" a contract from a cap strapped team rather than try to duke it out in this unbelievable market.
Yes but we have alot of cap space. I don't care if we pay someone like Richards or Stamkos more than they're worth, as they are elite players. I was worried about Ehrhoff but looks like Sabres are signing him.
Speaking from the Washington viewpoint I am trembling in terror that GMGM will have yet another unproductive off-season where most of our good UFAs walk (Hannan) while we weep on bended knee for some overvalued underperforming big namer (Kaberle) and end up ousted in the first round again and again and again and again until Ovie retires.
