Has Holtby played for Wash at all? I remember him being the toast of the play offs last year.

He's still with the Flyers? Do they keep him locked in a closet somewhere?

The closet is called Adirondack. Only played three NHL games in the two and half years since that Cup Finals run, one regular season and two playoff games in '10-'11.

Agreed. They are always a little overzealous with the horn.

I hated the Methot-Foligno deal when made but he has really solidified that defense.

How dare the Habs give Ryder's number away. They are scrappy and highly skilled. Gonna be a PIA.

That Galchenyuk to Gallagher play right there was sweet. Those two look like they'll be a threat for at least the next 10 years in this rivalry.

Yeah, I know. I should have explained it better: money banked + Savard LTIR would be enough to make room for Iginla.

To be fair however, I don't know how much space the B's will have accrued OTHERWISE by that time. Not sure how tight we are to the cap. We gather enough AND use Savvy's LTIR, there may be a way to do it.
My math was based on a full season (wouldn't changed if pro-rated). Capgeek says our cap payroll is $68.939M (including bonuses), so $1.261M of free cap space. By the deadline that money would be $4.459M and adding $4M (LTIR), would give the Bruins $8.4M to spend

Capgeek states that right now, if Boston's roster doesn't change at all from day 1 to the final day of the season, the Bruins are committed to 66 million in salary. That's a lot of space accruing between now and then, and counts both Savard's and Thomas' cap hits so LTIR figures in after.

They also give the total salary we can add at the deadline, again, assuming the roster changes not one bit. The number is $17,010,671. According to them, and to be fair I assume it's legit but never actually researched, we could afford 3 Jarome Iginla's if need be.

In my opinion, you can't use any math including bonus cushion, because that money would reflect next year if used, so it wouldn't be a smart move.

Looks like the Devils are gonna get their first regulation loss tonight. Bruins will be the last team in the Eastern Conference to lose in regulation

EDIT - as I say that they score to bring it within one, lol.

The Sens/Pens game was just plain ugly, resembled an exhibition game, turnover city, goalies played well until the shootout.

It be nice if Toronto and Montreal could start winning because I don't want to face Jones/Mackinnon/Monahan/Drouin/Barkov for 10 years.

Leighton has given up five goals on 24 shots. Homer's rummaging around in the cupboard to see if he can find yet another goalie.

A Cole dive to give Montreal a 4on3 advantage to close out the OT and they score.

Clear embellishment, no doubt. You'd think he got body slammed by Rampage Jackson

I seriously hate penalties to guys who just plain out-muscle the opponent.

Refs need to get on top of this.. all people are going to do is drive hard to the net and as soon as they feel any contact they'll just collapse and make it look "good" and instant-PP. Awful.

Report: Deal is off between Arnott, Rangers.
Katie Strang of ESPNNewYork.com reported Sunday night that Arnott, who signed a one-year contract with the Blueshirts on Saturday, was not cleared by team doctors this weekend, thus nullifying the deal.
