Just curious, what do you guys think the odds of the NHL folding the coyotes, dividing up its remaining assets/players amongst the other teams and using last seasons rankings as the order in which teams get to take?
If we could snag Gormley, Larsson or Yandle that would be amazing.
That would be amazing, but don't count on it.
Would enrage the NHLPA.
Besides, as a fan of the broader sport, I'd rather see the game grow.
Well, those multiple ACL problems didn't help his career. It's not because he wasn't a good draft choice at our position that year, that he was going to be a bust.
He should have sticked with figure skating. He is way too fragile for hockey. He already had back and hip problems at 17. And then the two ACL like you mentionned... for a player who's main strength was skating, it didn't help that's for sure. He was having a really good 19 yo season before his 1st ACL.
Offer the same contract to Pacioretty now before these contracts get any more ridiculous.
Neither he nor Patches are worth anywhere near that. What the hell happened to second contracts? What the hell is Rutheford thinking? What the hell is the CBA for if a 20 year old kid with less than 150 games in his career is getting paid MORE THAN MARIAN HOSSA.
Skinner's a good, or great hockey player but this contract is ridiculous. I have no sympathy for Carolina if they are going to claim they're a small-market team - they resigned an RFA with no arbitration rights to a painfully long/expensive deal and they're getting money from the Habs, Leafs, Rags and Co. ********.
