And what of our elite Canadian talent (Crosby, Stamkos, St. Louis, Toews, Doughty, Weber, Perry, Getzlaf, Tavares, Nash, Giroux, Keith, B. Richards, Iginla, etc)? Would you want to kick them out of your ideal All-American league for the crime of being Canadian?

I also love how seriously you guys take me about an all american hockey league, because you know how that gets rid of like 75% of the players.

This is one reason that I don't like Canadian hockey fans, they are too crazy about hockey some times that they don't even understand humor.

seriously, figure it out guys! gms talk trade all the time. 99.9% of the time trades don't happen from that talk. eklund reports the talk. understand this, then you can finally have fun with eklund and his site.
Ya, I'm sure Eklund taps the phone lines to hear all the juicy trade talk.

Look at your ceiling somebody wrote gullible.

He couldn't do the same thing with teams like DET, NY, PHI, BOS, PIT. We don't listen to his vile down here.

It would be a win-win for me personally: no Eklund and no Canadian teams

and no NHL

What I find concerning is there are certain frequent posters who visit his site daily to do nothing but mock him and make fun of him. I personally think he's a fraud, but I don't feel the need to visit his site everyday for years just to tell him.

Because at $8 mil LA matches, has everyone signed for the season, and just short of $2 mil of cap space for the year. All you would gain from doing that is pissing off the Kings.

Technically in this context it would be a superiority complex.

Just saying.

An offer sheet to Doughty would be a great idea. He's one d-men you can build your defence around for 10 years or so. Schenn? I wouldn't be too agressive.

It's a great idea to offer sheet a lot of good players, Doughty, Stamkos, Parise, etc.

But that doesn't change the fact that offer sheets are hardly ever used due to fear of repercussions.

and i think in the case the 4 means he's fairly certain these offers have been made, not that they are close to being accepted.

people just read what they want to and then jump to conclusions though, i suppose.
The difference is that the other guys are paid by a media outlet and don't need to generate hits for their site to get paid. Reporting anything he hears also includes reporting anything he hears himself say I wager, as all of those types of sites create exciting topics out of nothing to generate cash.

LOL people said that would happen to Edmonton for trying to sign Vannek and then getting Penner. With a salary cap in place it's hard to go out for revenge on other teams. Especially teams with tons of cap space. Talk about baseless propaganda.

Yep. They've got a great group of d-men and if they were gonna go throw out an offer sheet it would be for a goalie or a center if they lost their patience and wanted to win now.

LOL! You're hilarious! Simply hilarious! ROFLMAO!!!! Did you know that teams are allowed to extend another player's contract while in the last year of their contract?

What a fear monger!

Proud to say I haven't checked that forsaken website out for years... but I've been talking about E6-E10 coming out. Would make a lot of sense at this point.
