So they'll give Parise/Suter a career long deal at 5.x cap hit.

-they could have two cups by then, maybe 3

-they're deep enough and young enough in key positions they might not have to. thank Burke for that one

Possibly nobody. Total cap system could be different.

They will find a way to keep their guys. Book it.

We both know the reason the Hawks lost as many guys as they did was because of the RFA contract screw-up the year before.

What about Detroit?

Yep. Same conference....worst scenario of them all unless....we start understand who we will be facing and ADJUST once and for all. Yet, finding guys that can play hockey and be tough, most teams will keep them. Or you'll have to draft them. We will have to modify our drafting strategy.
I would not call it fluky but they did seem to get a lot of calls their way in the playoffs.

Hawks barely made the PO's last year, after shipping out 6 guys...it happens...

They have returned to form this year though...

As for the B's, they are having a great season right now, and have had no adversity, let's give them some time, who knows...ripe for an upset in April? Hopefully we are still playing...

From our perspective. From Boston's perspective, they'll tell you they were robbed more than usual. Will our board be objective when it comes to Boston? Come on.

Hard to believe Sweden has not won junior gold for 30 years.

I will have to cheer for them in OT.

Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of our greatest strength, and our greatest weakness.

Watching them beat us in the playoffs the last two times we've met (and taking us to a game 7 as heavy underdogs 4 years ago) + watching them win the cup last year was a ****ing punch in the face.
i can't think of a more objective dose of hard facts

Will sound opportunistic.....but as far as we need to more present in the Q. We need to be more present in Sweden as well. Only 4 Swedes in 8 years. But 2 on 2 drafts lately so it might be a sign to come. But I'm mostly talking about Swedes in the first couple of rounds instead of just fillers.

Seeing Russia tonight makes me more pissed off about the loss......They had no business in there. Happy for Sweden though.

Great to see the Blades guys on Twitter writing about Makarov.

How was that guy not drafted in the Q when Lewiston was dissoluted....makes no sense.

Don't know the exact shot total, but it was something like 58-17

A sloggy (nervous?) Russian team never competed. Still hard to imagine Sweden hasn't win in 30 years.

I'm disappointed for Canada but so happy for Sweden. Enqvist must be bouncing off the walls!

Canada got into a no system game against the Russians and gave up too many odd man rushes. They tried to beat them on pure firepower and it didn't work. Plus I think it's safe to say the Russians cared more about beating Canada than anything else.

I'm sure they have a plan for that too and it will all work out good. I'm a young guy and I want to have a long future ahead of me as a Bruin and make more good things happen for the team and our fans."
good article.

Visentin did have the play of the tournament today, IMO. Did you catch his blind behind the back save?? Spooky
