Didn't fully understand why I read that the Blue Jackets were seeking permission from Calgary to talk to Kiprusoff until I saw that supposed offer to Bob from SKA

...still not as good as Richards' tying goal in game five last year, though. I miss that Richards.
yea but I still have this odd feeling that if we don't buy out Richards he'll have a bounce back year

That odd feelings is called hope, my friend. This place will drain you of it.

No, tonight at 11pm. The ones you've heard about are the ones who've been informed in advance by their teams.

So much for my "Kunitz is the odd man out in Pittsburgh" theory. He just signed a 3 year extension with a 3.85 million cap hit per year.

He took a discount. He would have easily gotten $5 million/year next summer.

Anyone who would have given Kunitz 5M is legitimately on crack. I think he's .35 overpaid quite frankly.

3.85 is a very good AAV for Kunitz. People forget that he was solid in Anaheim; he's not simply a product of Crosby.

Just because some desperate GM might've given him 5M doesn't mean he's worth that. I'd say the deal is solid, but by no means underpayment.

The 3 years is what surprises me. Not the average cap hit.

Kunitz would've easily gotten $5 million on the open market. He cooled off at the end of the season, but he was easily on pace for 40 goals.

Wow, I didn't think Tampa would actually buy Vinny out.

I wouldn't say Kunitz is 100% a product of Sid (much more talented than say, Dupuis) but he is nowhere close to a $5M player without Sid.

So do we have to listen to Lecavalier-NYR rumors all summer?

Unfortunately. I bet he signs with Montreal, for obvious reasons. And for decent money too.

Vinny L was not a terrible player, I'd certainly want him over Richards.

Vinny will go to Canada I think now, the most money and a ton of love for him there

Kunitz is a good complimentary player, but he's definitely had his stats padded by playing with the two best players in the world. Though it's a testament to Dupuis and Kunitz that they're able to play very well with Crosby and Malkin. That's not necessarily an easy thing to do.

If the Flyers trade for Miller, I really hope Buffalo makes them overpay.

You're missing the point. I don't really disagree with you that he could have gotten the money. I think anyone that would give him that money is a moron. Anyone who thinks Kunitz is actually worth 5M per year is insane.

Paying Kunitz ~4M per year until he's almost 37 is retarded.
