gotta say that alfredsson signing in detroit is amusing. loltastic captain and 'leader' if you ask me. loser
and wtf is going on? clowe at almost 5 for 5, horton at 5.3 for 7!!! my only question now is: where's the 'sign everybody bandwagon at? i said GMMB wasn't gonna get dragged into it and he's making me proud
Why do you say that? They still need to respect it. If a team spends like that, he will need to make some space if they don't have it. Cap space would be overrated if you'd be able to not respect it....
Because most GM's, as soon as they make a move to acquire cap space...blow it all in the summer in free agency
Cap space is one thing...what you do with it is a whole other and it has more to do with player evaluation.
They will because a lot of the big spenders are at or near the cap. After the first 75-100 mil in cap hits goes, things get tight and you can get pretty good deals. I'm surprised the early guys are getting so much as there is not a lot of cap space/money available this yaer with the cap dropping. Players waiting may end up having to take a lot less than they want.
Komisarek at 700k, I would have been all over that.
Well great. He shouldn't have too much trouble to take Gionta then.
Sending Gionta back to NJD would be awesome! Never been a fan since he arrived. Gainey had a chance to rebuild the Habs that summer, create a new identity such as making them bigger. So he goes out and gets Gomez 5'11(Koivu shown the door), Cammaleri (5'9) and Gionta 5'7. Man Gainey sucked as GM.
