Continue.

Perhaps with this:

Guess his ex-teammate also is in partnership in the ownership of the bar that was central to the illegal gambling operation.
Couple that with his Olympics shenanigans and just what the heck is Vanek's major malfunction character-wise these days?

Vanek strikes me as a Guy that "I just don't give a you know what, anymore".

Looks like he just doesn't care anymore.

Yeah, I figured he'd just sit around counting his money after that offer sheet many moons ago. But I guess I was wrong, he was allegedly 'investing'

What a strange player.

Gambling is blue collar investing.

He volunteered as a witness. Doesn't mean he is guilty of anything.
Colbourne re-signed with Calgary

I think that was just his playing style to begin with. Something like a more skilled version of Frolov.

It still kills me that he got several Selke votes in 2007 simply because he was +47. Three really lazy writers would have told you with a straight face that they thought he was the best defensive forward in the NHL that season.

Meanwhile, Vanek was being benched late in playoff games that year because Lindy Ruff didn't trust him defensively. Stuff like that caused me not to care/get too worked up over the NHL Awards.

Ronning?

On a more serious note, Shanahan hiring a real stats guy in Dubas and getting rid of 2 of Burke's cronies makes me think that franchise might actually start to head in the right direction. It might take a few years, but those are good moves to start with.

The new guy, Dubas must have looked at the analytics and determined Booth was worth the price.

Ahhh the Leafs.

Badside for the Avs is this deal takes him to UFA. I think ROR won a little, but they had to.

Yeah that's what I mean--given the situation and how contentious all his contract stuff has been so far, this is a relatively mild solution.

But, they risk a Statsny happening all over again. They need to take his temperature on an extension as soon as he is eligible or look at trading him

I think they would've done better to try to trade him before declaring team-elected arbitration, then if someone threw him an offer-sheet they could match if they wanted and just be done with it.

Just in time for the Stamkos train to arrive. Still two years away from being a FA and the articles are starting to show up .

Quote:
Itís July 2014, and Stamkos has two more years on his 5-year, $37.5-million contract with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Then he becomes an unrestricted free agent, free to sign the NHL's first $12-million annual contract with any team named the Toronto Maple Leafs.
