Yes, after the penalty language for teams not properly reporting HRR was mysteriously missing from the owner's offer 10 days ago, both sides said the packages had to be signed, sealed, and delivered before it can all be declared a done deal.
So I would assume we would have to wait for training camp to start. But with these two morons, nothing is a given.
Yup, two morons who have degrees in law and I'm willing to bet are smarter than anyone else who's posted in this thread. As fans we hate it, but it's the business side of the game, in the end all sports leagues are businesses, they may look like idiots and the lockout went longer than it should of, but in the end they both work in the interest on their constituents and that's exactly what they did.
i understand locking players out and not letting them use the teams facilities. but not letting them getting looked at by team doctors is stupid. woudln't it be wise to make sure your players, especially the ones that are signed long term are healthy...

Players who were injured before the lockout had access to all team resources (e.g., Quick).
Seriously, who cares? He went out a champ and is spending time with his family. But let's call him a loon and say good riddance. *shakes head*
What if Mitchell just up and decided he wasn't playing hockey anymore and we were still on the hook for his $3.5 against the cap for another two years?
It is a big deal to walk out on a hockey team, especially when your contract continues to hurt them while you kick up your feet in Colorado. Leaving your club to launch into a mini season with $1.3 million in cap space, the least in the entire NHL...
The man had time off during the lockout. He signed for four years, and just because he got what he wanted he is going to hamstring his team from trying to go for it again? All he would have to do is sit on a bench for 80% of the season and during the possible playoffs.
is anybody else a little worried about this news that Quick is just now being cleared to play? As I recall, before the lockout he was expected to maybe miss camp but be ready for the season. Now he's just cleared to play 3 months later? Considering it's a back injury and he's a goalie, that's pretty scary to me. Hopefully, it's just a matter of the team wanting to keep him in house and under team medical supervision.
