I was a little surprised. I thought they'd go with BriseBois, but it's still a good choice. At least they didn't give the job to freakin' McGuire.

I tought he was the front runner and he ended up getting the job. As for McGuire he's not nearly as bad as some make him out to be, I'm just glad Francois Giguere didn't get the job.

Flames sign Roman Cervenka, that's a pretty good pick-up if you ask me.

Coyotes won't know what hit them tonight. Probably won't be Yip, unless they are right in front of him.

A guy who hasn't played a single game in the NHL getting a $3.775 million deal? No, not a good pick-up, not at that price.

Cap hit is 3.775. His actually salary is under 1 million, it's mostly bonuses that raise his cap hit to 3.775. Plus they are unrealistic bonuses that he most likely won't get because they are things like winning the Conn Smythe, winning the Hart, winning the Selke, etc.

Still a horrible cap hit.

And the cap hit is the only thing that matters, especially for a team like the Flames that has some decent cap room but a LOT of holes to fill.

The Flames are only paying Cervenka 925k. He most likely won't hit the bonuses and if he does, it will make the full cap hit worth it.

Not a big deal

Nobody will ever be able to spell Duchenes name right for some reason.

Not a big deal
His full cap hit will most likely count towards the salary cap depending on how the next CBA works, he's only getting paid 925k in actual salary but his cap hit is close t o 4 million.

Canucks extended Mike Gillis as their GM. Also I learned something new today, playing in 2 regular season games = carrying your team into the playoffs.

I love how much flack I got a few weeks ago for posting that my friend who played hockey with Seth Jones years ago told me he would be signing in the WHL.

Everybody was up in arms against me, calling me a liar, full of ****, presumptuous, stupid, etc.

Well today Jones signed with the WHL.

That's right. I was right.

The Kings could knock off the 1,2,3 seeds in the west and number 1 in the east.

I could safely say that I would barely watch any of that series (besides games 6 or 7)

No kidding. I was going to have a SC party but I don't want everyone to fall asleep after the 1st period.

I think I remember jokingly predicting Phoenix/Florida in the Finals.
