Rick is also not doing interviews like the soulless ghoul that he was during the awkward phase when his Captaincy was questioned after asking to be traded back in Columbus. He's actually... happy

Think of all the paper work you need to fill out to lease a car.

Imagine what the paper work is like for this.

Must be a huge pain in the ass.

this is far worse its lawyers arguing over the way the language should be in the MOU, most lawyers are particular and have a certain way of writing things and when faced with opposition of the wording they get very upset. So I can imagine this is no walk in the park.

I think someone posted on here late last night from one of the reporters that the MOU is taking longer and that instead of being done Saturday, it may not get finished until Sunday, pushing training camps to start on Monday....I hope this is not the case because we are all eager to get the season started!

He seems like a nice guy and all, but damn his interviews are bad. Weird flow, poor questions... it's kind of awkward at times. I'm not sure why he's not replaced.

Okay bye lol.

Jeez do players individually think they will make an impact threatening retirement based on the CBA? Nobody cares. Plus, it's Erik Cole, not Sidney Crosby.

Go ahead, retire. I'll take the money. Complain to someone else.

If he's unhappy, why not retire now?

Oh right. Money.

ha...I hope for the canadiens sake Cole doesn't retire. I know we don't know for certain, but it sounded like when players retire their salary cap hit still stays with the team for whatever the duration of the contract would have been and that would really damage the canadiens with that much dead space

Not a fan of the Canadiens, and their poor choices lately have really dug themselves a deep hole. Not that this would be their bad choice if it happened, but it would certainly be funny if they were on the hook for more worthless money if this happened. They will get out from under the Gomez contract because of the CBA though.

That sounded like it only applied to contracts over 7 years in length (attempts to circumvent the cap, etc)

Yeah, actually the entire MSG cast is like that for the Rangers. Everyone is a homer and everyone asks dumb ass, obvious questions. I suppose it's like that mostly everywhere though.

I will say this: the occasional realistic approach is taken by Maloney and Joe. Sometimes, they tell it like it is. Which is refreshing. Not saying I like them, but, they do call things out if they see them done wrong from time to time.

Those terrrrrible Stan Fischler reports about how the "Rangaaaaaas" could do no wrong 2 seasons ago or more (can't remember) were horrific. Can't stand that guy. So glad he doesn't do much in regards to the Rangers lately.

that part I feel would make sense, and it may have been reported, I can't recall; but that is something we will need to look into once the cba is finally made public

I'm sorry, but what a colossal A$$ hat this guy is. Approximately $4 Million a year in salary. Go sell life insurance or start your own business Eric and see how much money you make. What complete ******.

Heh, this reminds me about how Latrell Spreewell was unhappy with the money he was making, citing how the millions he was making wasn't enough to feed his family. What colossal jerks, the both of them.
