We're going to mug Ron Burkle. Screaming "This is for the lockout!" and "Try re-signing Malkin without THIS!" as we run away.

Cahones was just an expression / joke. I'm not literally suggesting you're a coward if you buy NHL this year. I just mean sometimes people need encouragement to know they're not the only ones taking a step. Also I edited the BRA part for clarity.

Don't worry I still respect you as the mighty and powerful Ogre even if you buy 15 tickets this year and 5 jerseys. I'll just think you're a little nuts is all. You and anyone else who does that.

Where's this idea of tradeable cap space coming from on the main board?

Maybe they're just talking about the buyout capability? I haven't read up on all the agreed to terms but I haven't heard anything else related to the Cap besides 70M this year, don't to 64.3 next year, floor's around 40M, and two compliance buyouts.

Yeah, I don't know what there talking about. They just keep on asking if the tradeable cap space made it into the cba.

too poor to spend money on anything aside from center ice so it wont mean much, but ill use streams this season instead of giving the nhl any money.

it does give me satisfaction that casual fans/general public collectively see the nhl as a joke after this whole debable, so hopefully HRR will take a decent hit.

I don't think that was ever seriously considered, was it?

Theoretically, a team that doesn't need their buyout could take on someone else's mistake contract and buy it out in exchange for a pretty good player in a multiplayer deal. But I have to believe there will be provisions to prevent this.

ya hopefully there is a clause stating the player had to be on the team that buys him out for a certain amount of time. No offseason trades immediately turning into buyouts.

I am still mad at the NHL for screwing me out of a road trip to Denver to watch the Pens play and shack up with this cute girl who is starting med school at UT next year. ********.

The ripple effects are incalculable. More proof Ogre should avenge you by not buying that Penguins coolie cup.

Used to be called a Coolie cup AFAIK (back in the day when old people like me were in college). Google seemed to produce a large number of results including an official Pens merchandising web site, however Google is not a spell-checker so you may be right. But then I would expect "Did you mean 'Penguins Koozie Cup"?, which I didn't see.
