Gonchar gets 5m for 2 years. Have to think that sets the bar for Streit.

I'd be down with Streit. He could teach Josi some things, or at least make him happier to have another Swiss player on the team. He'd be a good stop-gap, slot him in with Klein for two years until Ekholm or whomever is ready.

I hope Boston beats the crap out of Chicago. Their fans are obnoxious enough as it is.

Would be great for the city of Boston after what they've been through too.

Rumor abounds that Dan Byslma is on the hot seat and may not last long. IMO Lindy Ruff would be an interesting fit in Pittsburgh. The reason Byslma would go would be Shero and Co. think he lost control of his players against Philly last year and Boston this year. Ruff is known for being able to reign that in.

He may not have won the Norris, but he does live closer to his in-laws.

Not trying to be buzz killington here, but Kypreos was wrong all the way through the Ryan Suter UFA shiz ... I hope he's right this time.

Rumor has it that Holmgren is shopping Couturier and Schenn "for the right package"

I guess Weber wasn't that right piece last year

Just peeked in the Phoenix business thread for the first time in a while. I guess Bettman has stated that the league will not own the team next year, either way. It appears that some meeting on Friday is a real big one and that it really doesn't look good for Phoenix. Looking like QC bound.

You won't hear this from me often...but I support that move. I've been to a game in Phoenix and it was awful. No one one was there, and no one that was there cared. Unlike Atlanta, they have gotten more than their fair shake. It isn't ownership, it's a bad market.

Bring back the Nordiques!

So we immediately get to turn around and do the realignment dance again. Oh, joy!

I also doubt he finds a piece nearly as good as Weber to fill a glaring hole.

agreed & bring in Toronto #2 (reverse LA) & Quebec Nordiques as expansion teams ... and you can put those teams in the Western Conference & no one will cry.

I vote PHX to Quebec City, but Portland makes sense. I also like the idea of Milwaukee.

I hate to seem like I'm piling on, but Phoenix/Glendale has had MORE than enough time by now to pull together enough support from the city and sponsors to make real progress by now (maybe not close the deal but at least be on a real timeline to doing so) and they have not. I think the league has to get out of the business of running that franchise and ultimately that probably means they are not the Desert dogs anymore. Sad that it comes to this, but we are where we are.
