Who said that without their tongue firmly in cheek?

Although I appreciate we have a good farm for once, I'm not ready to call him a good gm until we ice a consistent winner.

Not naming names, but there's been a couple of em who have been dead serious.

And I actually agree. For the most part I like what Yzerman has done, but it all has to come together for the big club for him to be considered success. I think my only difference is that I think it's going to take a bit longer than most people feel like waiting.

I don't think that SFY has done anything to indicate that he's purposefully trying to tank the team. The only major disagreement I see the fan hivemind having with SFY are about the statements on Frantz Jean returning, and that hasn't actually happened yet.

There are plenty of bigger conspiracy fish to fry anyway IMO.

I totally agree with this.

And it's probably safe to assume that Yzerman will get in trouble if goaltending is still a problem at the end of next season.

Main board, pops up pretty often.

And by some Canuck fans who think Stevie should have been fired instead of Boucher.

FWIW I still think Malone is the buyout candidate par excellence, and would be very surprised to see Vinny go that route. But the door seems to be at least a tiny bit open.

This is the last year to do a compliance buyout, is it not?

I think it's this year and next year, but only 2 total. So MTL and NYR only have one buyout left each.

Wait, I think you're right. They set it up that you get one this offseason without penalty or something like that, right? Pretty sure thats how it played out.

Right. They let teams do it before the short season started pretty much for Gomez and Redden (#SatherSignings) and all it did was take away one of their two buyouts. No other penalty.

No this summer and next summer so If Yzerman does'nt buyout LeCavalier this year or next then he stuck with Vinny most likely for the remaining years of his contract.

As per @NHLPA, player part of Competition Committee: Backes,Cory Schneider,Cammalleri,Hainsey,Pietrangelo; rules/equip changes go thru them

For changes to visors, equipment fighting need 2/3rds of Committee to agree - since 5 reps per side, players effectively must agree #visors

I agree I think that Malone get's boughtout before Vinny.

"Maybe awkward is the right word," Ohlund said of the circumstances. "I clearly understand this has not been a great situation for ownership or management."
Quote:
Ohlund, 36, who in February 2012 had what basically was a partial replacement of his left knee, said he has seen "quite a few doctors" during the past year and all agree.

"From a surgery standpoint, there is nothing more that I can do," he said. "Everybody has been absolutely wonderful, management, coaches and everybody with the Lightning. As for how it's going to play out, I'm not completely sure."

Hard to say no to team healthcare and a few million dollars a year.

I get what you're saying and the situation absolutely blows from a team building standpoint, but it's pretty understandable for a guy to want to get what he signed for, especially when he has no knees left.

And he may surprise us and retire anyway.

This. Keep getting paid, Ohlund. I am guessing the contract is being covered by insurance anyway.

Yotes fan back. How much would we have to add to Rundblad/Stone in order to get Connolly?

Guessing Gormley would be the centerpiece instead for a prospect like Connolly.

Well speaking for myself, I definitely wouldn't be averse to Gormley for Connolly straight up. But I was just going off of previous convos with Bolts fans regarding their D, e.g. they're looking for a RHD, preferably a thumper.
