The Avs cut Hunwick loose today. 1. They had to free up #22 for someone new. 2. It's Matt Hunwick.

Carlo Coliaiaocovocoao is being bought out in Detroit - if anyone needs a defenseman who can play 2nd pairing time in 17 games per season he is your guy.

PIT resigns Pascal Dupuis. 4 years...AAV 3.75.

Salary is ok, term is too much.

Negative in this is that DB will use it as an excuse to keep Bennett off of Crosbys line which pisses the whole fanbase off.

We are in good shape cap wise for 14-15 despite what the alarmists say. What they are forgetting is that one half of the top six on defense will be comprised of Olli Maatta Brian Dumoulin and Scott Harrington. They make a combined 2.7m. And the top six at forward is more or less set, the only real signing needed is Sutter as the 3C. The rest of the open spots with one exception is just 3rd and 4th liners. Not a big deal.....that's filler anyway.

Glendale City Council is on the verge of keeping the Coyotes while at the same time they have trouble fueling their fire trucks. Smart.

oh it was Zanon too. let's not let that get lost in the excitement of dumping Hunwick.

even crazier than that... the Avs are thinking of keeping Bigras on the NHL roster. apparently we had him ranked as the #14 prospect on our draft list.
never really heard of a 2nd round D man making the roster in his first year.

Too bad, in a sense. Granted, DeKeyser can probably fill his spot, but Cola did have a solid playoff run, he just costs too much per year. Would love him in Detroit at a lower price, but we move on.

1st Team NHL All-Stars

C- Crosby
LW- Kunitz
RW- Ovy
D- Subban and Suter
G- Bobrovsky

Ovy becomes only the 2nd player in NHL history (Messier) to be named 1st Team All-Star at 2 different positions (LW and RW) in their career. He was also named 2nd Team All-Star at LW today.

Flyers sign Vinny Lecavlier, 5 years 4.5 aav and FULL NMC.

Don't know why they signed Vinny, they are already well set at the Center position and have more pressing needs...term is long and full NMC.


Pierre Lebrun also says Scuderi is going to move east if he can't come to terms with the Kings. I am thinking he is going to the Islanders back to his Hometown.

I guess it's a combination of it being a deep draft and the Avs' defense being really bad. I guess it's also partly due to his skill set. They probably have confidence that he's not going to make a lot of costly mistakes. His skating also helps keep him out of trouble.

But you're right. It's unusual.

BTW, what do you think about the '14 draft? There's a part of me that's OK with letting the young Avs team take their licks one more year. Maybe they can draft McKeown or even Eckblad? I don't necessarily hope the Avs draft him but I'm somewhat intrigued by "The German Gretzky". But Bigras and Eckblad would be some nice building blocks to go with the offensive pieces.

So a little bit of drama is brewing in Denver. Hunwick and Zanon went unclaimed. The Avs basically announced that they no longer want these guys. There are some guys in the pipeline they're high on as replacements. Plus there's their recent draft pick, which, evidently, is also in the mix to be with the NHL club. The Avs aren't up against the salary cap either. It kind of seems like they've already decided to take their lumps and let younger guys play on the back end. Do they keep them with the NHL club and limit their ice time, do they trade them, or do they send them to the minors? It's not like their salaries are jamming anything up since the Avs arent against the cap and these guys' salaries expire soon.

Well, I have one thought on why the NHL doesnt want the Coyotes to become the Salmon. It's the same reason the SEC only wants one team in FL but they also want at least one team in TX and MO. They're slaves to advertisers and tv networks. It's not hard to zero in on this. And for the NHL to go from Arizona to Seattle, which pillages Vancouver's market, it has to be dire. But luckily for the NHL, another American city (like Miami and the Marlins ballpark deal) caves to "big time sports".

Is it just me or does it seem like the NHL network is really the east coast hockey network. Seriously, all they do is talk about the Islanders and Penguins. Even the Blackhawks get scarce mention.

100% agree. Glendale basically bent over backwards to keep the yotes and the NHL wisely said "ok." The reason being is that an NHL team in Seattle will just suck Vancouver fans away and it's not like a Seattle NHL team is gonna be something big marketing wise for the NHL. It's a pretty tapped out market. OTOH, Phoenix can get all the fans from AZ, plus stragglers from NM and UT. Add in the fact that well, maybe, some people in Mexico might watch the team too and it just make sense to keep a team in PHX.

Anyhow, my 2 cents...

Islanders is surprising, I'd think they'd follow the Rangers and the Devils ad nauseum... I'm not sure why the pens get so much love other than Crosby who is the poster boy for the NHL.

The Islanders will be a very good team going forward. Now they added Clutterbuck, they will be even nastier...and have alot of team speed and young talent. If they get a good goalie, they will be a perennial playoff team.

Well, as an Avs fan, if the NYIs are going to roll the dice on Tim Thomas, I immediately want to trade with them for a 1st that doesnt involve Duchene, Parenteau, MacKinnon, or Bigras. The NYIs totally resemble a team that can go from being in the playoffs to being one of the wost teams.

NHL is down two teams in the west/Midwest. They will have to do something. Gonna be interesting. I think KC could support a team with no NBA franchise. Seattle would be a good market but agree it would hurt Vancouver.

Portland/Utah don't make sense based on smaller markets & NBA franchises.

i don't think it's so much that they don't want to move the team from phoenix.
it simply doesn't make sense to give Seattle a hockey team with a NBA team there as well.
remember, the stadium deal is based upon getting both a NBA team first and then a NHL team later. Seattle would be ideal for a NHL franchise but not without a NBA team to help ensure cooperation from the city.

no drama, send both of those mother****ers to Lake Eerie and save 1.8 mil on the cap.
Hunwick is he was playing and paid like a 7th or 8th D man would be fine. but he was playing well above his station and paid above it as well.
even worse is that some Avs fans tried to argue that he was better than Johnson last year.

PHI close to extending Giroux. Apparently it's 8 years with AAV around 8.3.

Rumors have it a trade with Loui Erikson going from Dallas to Boston for Tyler Seguin, there are other parts involved as well but those are unknown as of yet.

Edit, the deal is Peverly and Seguin for Joe Morrow and Loui Erikson, each team is throwing in some lower ranked prospects for balance.

That is a good haul for Nill, aside from that retarded gonchar contract he is really off to a hot start in big D.

You guys are all on crack. a Seattle team would do absolutely nothing to the attendance figures for the Canucks.

The canucks have a waiting list for season tickets, and have been sold out for almost 500 straight games

The biggest problem with seattle is the building, the 2 other teams that played in rinks that only held 11,000 people both almost went bankrupt, ask the sharks or the sens how it is to start off in such a deep hole.

http://seattle.curbed.com/archives/2...ockey-game.php

Vancouver fans would actually help fill the building in seattle, at least a few games, not that its hard to fill a building thats only going to hold 11,000 people.

For the love of GOD homer, dont give Giroux an 8 year deal worth that stupid amount of money off one good year, see what he does this year, if its back to what he did in 11-12 then fine do it, but if last year is what we get its a massive overpayment as he was just a good player and nowhere near elite last year.

Horkoff has been traded to Dallas for a pick according to rumors, that would really shore up the top 6 in Dallas. Seguin, Benn, Horkoff, Whitney, Peverly, Cole and Fiddler.
