For once, CBGB makes a whole hell of a lot of sense.

You know....Im sorry dude.

Ask anyone on the boards that knows me in person. I am usually a laid back type of guy. But I feel so crappy about this whole thing.

I have spent more money then most people paid for there houses on Kings tickets. Then I have some guy living in Barstow California who has maybe never been to a Kings game in his life or paid a penny for Kings merchandise that actually helped the organization(ie he bought a used one on eBay.) trying to make me feel like I am less of a fan? And on top of that I have other people who most likely work at Burger King or Home Depot that sit there for hours posting and posting repeatedly about the Salary cap and why we cant have the players....like they have some sort of CLUE about what is going on.

I could really care less about being the most hated person on these boards. At least I stand up for what I believe in and I don't change my mind like a female every time something doesn't go my way to try and make my ego feel better.

I guess its time to save the money and spend some quality time with the wife and new daughter

If healthy, I'd be cool with that too.

It's like Christmas, and all your friends are getting new bikes and Nintendos, and all you got was some crappy socks from Grandma. God bless her soul, but she's a crappy present picker. And you can't get money for it because you don't know what store it's from because she took the tag off.

I am in love with the idea of offering Kane or Toews a HUGE offer sheet. They are both worth it. Better to give a 12 year contract to a 22 year old than a 30 year old.

Havlat gone now too?

Don't worry, I'm sure there are a bunch of former Flyers or Sharks we can sign.

Maybe Marcel Goc, Jeff Jillson, Andrei Zyuzin are available.

the fw's remaining are defintely not worth big long term investements. If it is Kovalev, then 1 year max. Tanguay, 2 yrs (though not appealing much at all). Havlat, 3 yrs.

I also wonder, DL seems to be willing to overpay for tier 2 players (Handzus), but not tier 1 guys. If Handzus was signed for 3 mil, then that's 1 more million to overpay a bigger difference maker like Gaborik...

Guys, they don't want to play here. It sucks, but we can't do anything about it.

I shake my head.

Very true, and no one should be surprised. The surprise would have been signing someone.

He certainly does not. The numbers aren't out yet, but you can be sure its over 7M the first few years. Just because they tacked a few post-40 years onto it to bring the cap hit down doesn't mean they aren't paying real dollars in huge amounts on the front end.

Hahah. I agree except we didn't even get socks. So all our friends got nice toys and we got cold feet.

Well, there's where I personally disagree Reap. It's not so much they don't wanna play here, they don't wanna play here for the money or term being offered. We all know money talks... but I don't take issue with the offers Dean is making (assuming he's even making any).
