The Sharks are chokers yes.....looks like they may dismantle. They've had a very good core of guys....I expect Joe to end up in Nashville and Marleau in the East.

They still got Brent Burns, who is great when he isn't masquerading as Big Foot on the Matterhorn ride at Disneyland.

Apparently PIT and COL almost had a deal for the No. 23 pick. Not clear what would have went to COL except that it would not have been Neal. Some rumors that it may have been Despres plus something else as COL needs young puck moving defensemen.

I'd like to keep Despres if possible, even though Pittsburgh has a bunch of offensive defensemen.

In 2015-2016, we will have a killer group of uber talented kids on the blue line making up all three pairings (well 5 of the 6, with Letang). Simon is an important part of that. I wouldn't send Despres or Maatta or Pouliot to COL unless the rights to ROR was coming back. And COL would want more than a young defenseman for ROR anyway. They'd prolly insist on Maatta plus something else...no way.

Glad that fell through, the rumor was Neal but more than likely is was Despres.

Rumors that Kane and Toews have agreed to re-sign for identical 8 year/10.8m AAV deals.

The cap is expected to continue to rise significantly, but yes 10.8 is a lot.


Reality is that there is no choice to be made here at all. You have to give those two guys what they want.

It will be more like 1/6 in a few years. The cap is going to rise like a mother****er after that Canadian tv deal and the upcoming negotiations with NBCU. I hope they split it up and go ABC and NBC.

I think the Avs can with internal growth alone. McKinnon was the most exciting player in round 1 as a young rookie, his growth alone is going to be awesome. Hishon was also solid for playing his first NHL game in the freaking playoffs. Not to mention Deuchene missing most of that 1st round series.

We do need another top 4 dman to solidify things though.

The Avs are likely to go internal for the D man unless they can trade for one. They simply refuse to sign a higher priced D man.
Roy was serious about doing that the Blackhawks did in drafting D men in the 2nd or lower and developing them.

I thought the NBC deal took place not that long ago, not aware of any expiring deal with NBC or NBCSN. I think the NHL is pretty set for TV deals.

Ummm, no way. Zero chance the cap is going to double in a few years. That would mean the cap floor would also double and that would absolutely cripple almost half the league (which personally I wouldn't mind actually).

It'll go up by $5 mil a year on average, which means they'll still account for about a quarter of the cap towards the end of those deals.

Toews and Kane deals now confirmed. $10.5M AAV each for 8 years.

What lockout?

Frontloaded that so the AAV doesn't mean a ton.

Not sure what you mean. AAV is the cap charge, right? Front loading vs the cap can work in the NFL but I thought that NHL cap only uses AAV and thus front loading is irrelevant - do I have that wrong?

Obviously, payout timing matters in terms of club cash flow but that is a different question.

I believe you to be correct good sir...

I'm happy because I feel Giroux at 8.275 for the next 8 years will be a steal.
