did anyone know this was coming ???

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Colby Armstrong is being bought out by TOR. Will be on unconditional waivers at 12 noon ET.

In no way am I shocked but I figured they would keep him around.

Everyone knew that was a ridiculous contract the day it was signed. Especially for a player like Armstrong. Not all that surprised it's come to this.

I think it would be fantastic, however, I'd want Fletcher to do Parise diligence first considering the circumstances around Langs' exit from New Jersey. I'm fairly certain it was just Lemaire he had a problem with, but better safe than sorry.

He would have to be more of a do as I say and not as I do coach.

Even if it did, wouldn't they set it for noon Finnish time? They respect the Eastern time zone here and it's at noon...

Anytime a few select franchises lose out on a "big" name I'm happy! Today seeing Van and NYR lose out on Schultz was great.

Now for the Parise and Suter sweepstakes about to start tomorrow, I hope with every morsel in me that the Wings and Pens lboth ose out. If Parise puts on that Pens jersey---puke!

#### em both!

I'd honestly think that Fletcher will sign Langenbrunner first. Do his pitch to Parise, and have that as part of the pitch.

Bruno is way too blunt to do color commentating. I don't think he could do the amount of ************ that is required.

I really don't care if we sign a forward or not, but this team damn well better sign a left handed top 4 d-man. I'm going to go crazy if we have to have Scandella or Brodin play on the top line with Gilbert.

Just as long as LaPanta gets to use his microphone and hair piece.

The latest Russo article makes me realize that it's unlikely that any of the good free agents out there are going to sign on the first day.

Striking quickly is Wild's plan

My bet is that Parise signs with someone by tomorrow afternoon/evening and I think Suter will spend a few days pondering his decision.

If they sign quick, I like our chances. If they wait, I don't.

I don't like our chances at all. I'd much rather we massively overpay for Suter than Parise. Too bad it seems Wild management and fans in general don't agree with me.
