Copied from Minny Mod

Let me come down from being all hopped up on free agency.

Parise - Koivu - Granlund
Heatley - Cullen - Setoguchi
Mitchell - Brodziak - Clutterbuck
Powe - Konopka - Kassian/Veilleux

Suter - Gilbert
Scandella - Brodin
Spurgeon - Stoner

OH MY GOD THOSE ARE REAL LINES

Talking about getting better in one fell swoop. In a matter of 10 minutes they announced two acquisitions that definitely puts Minny back in contention. Would our ownership ever do that? _ell no.. not ever.. franchise hasn't suffered enough

This thread is interesting to read - you can get some perspectives... Too bad it was closed.

Granlund penciled in on the top line. Amusing.

Matt Carle gets $5.5 million per year from Tampa. Defensemen are really cleaning up this year. Makes Jack Johnson's contract look like pennies.

Jack Johnson's contract is the new Kaberle contract form a few years ago now.

with the jackets luck, I think I'll place some money in Vegas that he'll end up winning the Calder now (I assume he's eligible).

With our luck, we'll then hear about how the CBJ signing him was a stroke of genius, but that his injuries were Howson's fault.

He's not eligible: Any player at least 26 years of age (by September 15th of that season) is not considered a rookie.

Are you really still fighting this battle?

His injury struggles were predictable. Not as predictable as Martinek, but predictable nonetheless.

If this were true, then I would be telling anyone who would listen (and plenty who wouldn't) about it being true.

Always liked his game. I didn't follow him last year... any specific reason he didn't stick?

He wasn't a liability on a team that was full of them.

Here's a link to an excellent article by Scott Burnside at ESPN.com about the labor talks:

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

Based on reports from @RenLavoieRDS regarding NHL proposal to NHLPA, my view of labor outlook remains unchanged from weeks or months ago. That is, I was pessimistic to begin with, figured there was no way season starts on time and today's news only reinforces that sense. That said, it's July 14. It's an opening salvo not unexpected insofar as an owners' Utopian wish list. Let's see where we're at Sept. 14. The biggest nut to crack is two-fold: what's the definition of 100 per cent of Hockey Related Revenue and what share will the players get.I saw @NYP_Brooksie report about proposed re-definition of (shrunken) HRR. If so, that's not a good sign. Smaller share of a smaller pie. Not saying the other issues -- contract term restrictions, UFA, entry level, salary arb -- are unimportant, because they are (important)... ...But the most critical issue is first determining what constitutes HRR and second how it's divided between owners and players. When NFL/NBA deals were settled at (players' share of) 50 per cent or less, we knew this was destined to be another "takeaway" negotiation. So there's going to be a lot of "the sky is falling" forecasts, and maybe it will, but I'll wait until September to put on my hard hat.

Not. Good

Here's those two biggies plus the other discussion points...

From what I have read online, the owners want:
  • Redefine what is "hockey revenue (HR)" so less of the league's revenue is included
  • Lower the player's share of "HR" from 57% to 46%
  • Push Entry Level Contracts (ELCs) from three years to five years
  • Push Unrestricted Free Agency out to ten years of NHL experience
  • Get rid of salary arbitration
  • Limit long term contracts to five years
  • Force contracts to have the same salary in every season (no front-loading of contracts)

This could get real ugly before it gets better!
