Apparently that will occur after a successful ratification or roughly next tues-thurs if all goes well ..

I tried to give Fergy Jr a call to confirm it .. but he can't come to the phone as he is apparently on the phone with Joe Thornton's agent on the other line and has about 20 other agents on hold presently trying to offer the services of their players ..

Thanks for the confirmation - I had not heard the "or 7 years NHL experience" change to group III FAs reported (although I just visited the Business Board and Healy appears to be the source over there - IMO not the best source).

Give this man a cigar, best comment on the subject so far.

TSN has modified their page, they are now reporting:

- Age eligibility for unrestricted free agency at age 31 in 2005, 29 in 2006, 28 in 2007. In 2008, it's 27 or seven years of NHL tenure.

Not quite a copy of the CBA, but it's close enough for me.

Columbus' average ticket price is about average for the league and $5 more than Calgary's and Edmonton's. Along with the above average attendance that will put them well out of the bottom 10 revenue producers.

Where exactly did I accuse you (or even make the inference that you) made it up? I asked a simple question.

As Ulf_55 pointed out - time will tell.

there's no difference in "tanking" and "rebuilding". "tanking" is just a sinister term that people are enjoying saying these days.
I was making more of a joke by my last post, but... When you trade away, or sell most all of a teams top players you can call it a "TANK" right away. ...then they go into 'rebuild' mode.

stole this from habs board..........

Anaheim's new GM (and former TSN panel analyst) stated that there would be a de-emphasis on amateur scouting and an emphasis on pro scouting. This was due to the fact that liberalized free-agency, combined with the GM's task to stay under the cap, would create alot of roster changes each year, especially during the summer. The even playing field, financially that the 30 teams face has allowed for this situation.


you heard it from frankie first!

I'm pretty sure the league even investigated. The incident was the biggest reason why the NHL implemented the lottery.
The team may have wanted to (i.e., ownership) but these are professionals and it is against most of their nature to throw games. Now if the management decides to put in a rookie goalie, or sit your vets, thats another story. But I would guess the players on the ice were trying to win. If they are losing so some wonder kid can come save them, they probably would not have made the NHL in the first place.
