Just had a random thought that I don't see happening, but with the whole O'Reilly/Duchene deal, I guess stuff like this does happen. I'd assume the Blues will want Shattenkirk to make less than Pietrangelo, but with the way their stats are so far, it is hard to see a case for making Shattenkirk take much less. I wonder if they will run into an issue like the Avs did with not wanting to pay O'Reilly more than Duchene. It'll be interesting to see how close their two contracts are.
Also I Hughson is a great announcer, but there is no way I can listen to him when it deals with the Canucks. Two Canucks hook Williams to ground and Simpson said they were lucky not to get called there, with Hughson commenting that Kings are lucky it wasn't call on them, because he went down pretty easy there. Terrible. :
Man Washington just absolutely sucks. I would be pissed if they got a top 5 pick, but it's looking that way.
Tonight they iced Matt "1LW" Hendricks on the top line with Ribeiro and Ovechkin, and Eric "Traded for a 4th and crap prospect, then not tendered" Fehr on the second line with Backstrom and Brouwer. Their current five LWs: Hendricks, Fehr, Chimera, Wolski, Volpatti. Chimera's the only one who managed to secure a contract worth more than $1M.
Its not all on Hedberg tho, their defense has been pretty crappy during this slump.
As for Henrique and Zajac well the latter was injured most of last year, you cant expect him to come back full force. Not sure about Adam, I still think both should be 2way 60 poibt centres with parise.
