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

He was producing when he extended him. The drought started right after.

Cap space is one thing...what you do with it is a whole other and it has more to do with player evaluation.

He's close to re-signing in Anaheim.

I think he started sucking right after he signed the extension.

Players waiting may end up having to take a lot less than they want.

Komisarek at 700k, I would have been all over that.
I hope you are right!

After seeing all of these deals popping up, i can say only one thing.

The price we got Briere for looks a lot better.

Nice to see many eastern teams handcuffing themselves with these bad contracts. I hope we avoid the UFA's altogether now, and just look to improve our team via trade.

Feels like Lapierre + size thru trade. Hoping for a capable D on a 1-2 yr deal thru UFA so that they have 8 NHL D on the roster.

Honestly, almost every NHL player has twitter. You think they didn't search "Briere" yesterday? It's gonna be tough to get anyone to sign here after that reaction..

But they make a move to acquire cap space to obviously use it at one point or another. And some still think that they will be great because of UFA. Some might....pretty sure most won't.

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.

If it was Boston wpouldn't be losing a pile of players. NYR would be in on every UFA. Toronto wouldn't have bought out Grabo
