Sarge, ties it up!

And no, nobody seems to be trying that hard

Edit ... Malkin trying to bat the puck in on a penalty shot

Possibly. Not sure how that might affect the balance of power to allow teams to buy out long-standing risky contracts like DiPietro. Basically rewarding bad behavior. They might allow some type of modest exemption for certain teams though. And Probably I should expand that range from 58 - 62M. I think that's what we're dealing with here ultimately. We'll see. Meantime this pretty much guarantees (like Shero said) that teams are going to stand pat until they understand what's happening with the CBA.

Not sure which one you meant The only one I remember now is Medvedev, who failed to score.

Pre-Game, but it's from the match that was held on Sunday in Kazan. There's one more that will be held in Magnitogorsk on Sept. 2.

Especially since that is from today's match ... he had posted another 'the gang' photo before the other game, too, and I didn't bother to click the URL, assuming it was the old picture. Guess I lose a stalker card

So wait a minute, he's already playing in some type of for-fun tournament or something? I hope it's a no checking league.

^ They do it all the time. There are some pros who play in the A league at castle shannon. They play hard, but they know when to relax.

Huh. I thought their contracts / insurance clauses prevented them from playing in any kind of actual league play, amateur or otherwise, in the off-season because of possible injuries. I realized they do the informal skates (like at the Staples Center recently when a bunch of players got together), but not actual league play of any kind.

Kunitz: the Zigomantis cannot play in the realm of glass. Mantises are susceptible to cuts.

Adult league is like an organized pick up game. The "A" league has good talent but guys who don't play physical. They come in all the time and just skate around.
