Mactavish is the dumbest man in hockey.

If there was ever any concern.

Plenty of competition from the other Canadian teams and Garth Snow.

O'Neill's comments might be amusing or relevant if he wasn't such a complete loser of a hockey player. This would be like Alexei Yashin criticizing somebody. How could it possibly be taken seriously?

Anyone think Eakins would be a good fit in Buffalo with their GM Tim Murray? If we ever thought Eakins was an arrogant pompous @$$...well, Murray is a strong challenger.

His behavior has really irked me since he took over in Buffalo. Take for instance his comments on Ehrhoff, his thing at the draft...usually at the draft GM's say something nice about the hosting city, congratulate the cup winner...this guy goes up "buffalo selects sam reinhart.

dude should win something first I think...

Anyone take a step back at how PHX dealt with Riberio? Have to issue buying the guy out, but seems like they went out of their way to make it known the guy is a cancer.

Even being completely true, just seems odd for a team to come out and say as much.

No doubt it will affect their chances of signing UFA's. Regardless of how much someone likes or dislikes Ribeiro, going out in public with a comment like that is never a good idea, especially for a GM.

He's always done that. Washington's gm does the same thing. Murray is actually noted for having super short drafting schpels. People like him for it since the draft takes forever as it is.

I don't think it's strange. It's good PR. Players talk, GMs talk. Everyone inside the game knew about it.

But the team needs its loyal customers in Arizona to be onside. It needs the media to be onside. Leaving either one with questions simply counts against the bottom line.

I thought Oilers fans might get a kick out of this parody account tweet...

@JimBenningGM: Happy to announce Kassian signing. Felt longterm deal would've been a disturbing contract for a disturbing player. #Canucks #Oilers #Eakins

Yep, two more years of him being a classless idiot for the Nucks, it will be funny/sad when he has his "snap" moment and embarrasses the league.

Watching him run from Gazdic and chirp Gagner about breaking his jaw safely from the bench was embarrassing. The guy is a joke. Apparently he is a skill player who is too good to fight Gazdic though, according to Nucks fans.

Toews and Kane sign extensions for 8 years with an AAV of $10.5M for each of them. Chicago may need to shed some depth starting in 2015-16.

Just like some players were exposed when some rules were changed following the 2004 lockout, so have some GM's when it comes to the cap. Lou being one...

Coyotes didn't make the playoffs last season, they lost Ribeiro, Vrbata, Morris and Moss in free agency and they got Gagner, Vitale and Crombeen. Besides Calgary and Vancouver, ARZ is one Pacific team which is definitely beatable.

1. Kings
2. Sharks
3. Ducks
4. Oilers
5. Coyotes
6. Canucks
7. Flames

Ducks' goalies are Gibson & Andersen and Stalock is most likely going to be SJ's starter. Best case scenario, either Ducks or Sharks struggle because of their goaltending.
