No he didn't. He predicted there was a chance that they could play, but "chance" means it might depend on the player, and then he cited two players for whom it would be unlikely.

I could really be an elementary school reading comprehension coach with all the practice I get around here.

And if Grigs at #12 played half a season for us, why is it implausible that the #8 and #16 in a better draft might see some ice time?

This is probably good news for anyone who's not a Penguins fan. If the Pens upped their offer from 7 per, it can only mean they're giving themselves a little albatross to carry.

Burmistrov rumored to possibly be signing in the KHL... If he does good thing Darcy held out for more, this board would have exploded if he left for the KHL after trading Stafford for him.

That's term limits for you. He gets a 12 year deal to bring his hit to like 6-something under the old CBA.

I still can't believe people thought they'd be a cost-cutting measure.

Before people start freaking out, he isn't the good one. The good Faulk plays in Carolina.

I'm not sure which contract is worse -- the Letang deal or the Smith deal.

Probably the Smith deal, but not by much.

I imagine part of why he's going to the KHL is because he's in Winnipeg, though the fact he'd go to the KHL at all is obviously not encouraging. In all likelihood it's just a negotiation ploy because he's an RFA and has little leverage.

The Letang deal is awful, and is good news for everyone in the league not named Pittsburgh.

The thing about the Schneider deal is that the Canucks don't seem to be playing with any window in mind. You add an 18 year old, but hang onto a 34 year old goalie with no one behind him.

I would start thinking about dismantling from where they sit. It'll be interesting if that team slips out of the playoff race in the next 2 years or so.

Bickell re-signs for 16 mil over 4 years.I don't care what he did in the playoffs or how good he is in his own end, 4 mil a season for a guy who has never scored 40 points or 20 goals is extreme overpayment.

It's called payday! He couldn't have chosen a better time or set of circumstances to have his contract end.

Good for him.
