Alt was moved today in a weird deal with Philly today along with Boucher from Carolina. If Carolina was going to toss him for pretty much nothing, wish the Wild would have been in the mix.

Kind of impressed that the NHL actually showed Wild players and fans in those "Hockey is back" commercials .... normally we are too irrelevant to include in that stuff.

He doesn't have an NHL future.

I hope Barker makes the top-6 so the Wild will see plenty of him.

Glad to see Oiler fans admitting they were wrong about not heeding our warning about Barker when they signed him. Now it's basically Oiler and Wild fans bashing Barker in that thread and Canuck fans making attempts to defend the signing. Sorry Vany, but you can't defend that signing, especially since it's a one way deal.

Barker is so lucky to have been drafted #3. That has to be the only thing keeping any glimmer of hope in other team's eyes.

To be fair, the Wild traded fairly significant assets to acquire Barker and the Oilers paid him well; with both teams expecting him to fill a worthwhile role. That isn't exactly the case for Nucky.

It's the same optimism I had when we traded for him back in 2010. Only difference is he was only a 1-time failure at that point.

I expect Barker to play about 5 games with the Nucks considering injuries and he's likely their 8th defenseman.

Or just check him NHL13 style over the glass entirely. That would work too.

Paying Players Not To Play?

Under the new CBA you can no longer bury big money contracts in the minors (first $900K exempt but the rest counts against the cap). And ... injured players are not eligible for compliance buy-outs. That's likely going to result in the Rangers telling Wayne Redden to go home and collect $5M in salary for not playing this year (they aren't going to want to take the risk of injury and end up with his $5.6M cap hit for next season). Ouch.

Looks like the Habs are going to do the same thing with Scott Gomez. They'll pay him $5.5M this year not to play so they can be assured of erasing his $6.5M cap hit next year. Ouch again.

Ugh....I tell ya some fans and their victim mentality. Someone please explain to me how Nucks' fans think all the chaos and criticism in the Barker thread is about them and NOT Cam Barker himself? It is ALL about Cam Barker!! Fans would be flying off the handles no matter WHO signed him. And Vancouver fans were just as involved in bashing the Oilers when they signed the guy. But now suddenly they change their tunes?

Yowsers!

Supposedly he will be playing on a line with Alfie and Turris so I expect him to get his points.

Granted he kinda blew us off, but I'm still gonna be rooting for Lats big time this year. It's really hard not to like the guy and if he can stay healthy, I expect some good numbers out of the guy. Don't think many of the Sens' fans realize just how good Big Bear is when he's healthy and in shape. Wish we could've re-signed him too but as other have pointed out, if we did that, we probably wouldn't have had sufficient room to sign Parise and Suter. Can you imagine if we would've moved, say, Cullen, to make more room and been able to re-sign Lats along with signing Parise/Suter though?

Parise - Koivu - Heatley
Bouchard - Granlund - Clutter
Lats - Brodziak - Clutter
Powe - Konopka - Mitchell
