    And now Dupuis for 4 years, $15 million. Gotta hand it to Shero, he's done a great job of keeping the core in tact.

    I woke up to seeing this. Makes going to work before the 4th a little easier. Just a little though. So glad to see Duper staying for 4 years. Probably the hardest worker on the team.

    Yeah if there was one guy on that team that really deserved an extension he was it. Very pleased to see him staying.

    See this is how you develop your talent: Predators have announced Seth Jones will start next season paired with Shea Weber

    As expected, they will do great things together

    Can't believe they're going to move Seguin and potentially Peverley

    It's confirmed. Apparently he was partying during the Leaf's series a lot, staying up all night, playing bad because of it, and wearing the same clothes for days on end.

    So the Habs commit to getting bigger and tougher by dropping a 1st-round pick on big Mike McCarron who probably would have still been available by their second-round pick, then decide to drop $4M/year getting smaller and more fragile with Danny Briere. Really questioning the logic and decision-making here.

    I'm not upset by the loss of Peverley but I'm shocked that we'd let a young gun like Seguin go after being with us for what, 2 years, 3 at most I believe? A buddy of mine claimed ".... him, he didn't grind the corners like we did" as if that made him something less of a player because he didn't do the exact same thing the rest of us do to which I say .... that; I'm glad he didn't ride the corner slots, heaven forbid we change up our play style to keep other teams on their toes and guessing what we'll do next.

    Trying to bait other free-agents? Maybe a trade in on it way too... dunno what to think about it either, but I'll wait and see whats happening. Either way, if Brière plays like he cans, it might be a good signature, or another Gionta. We'll see...

    Scuderi is back in Pittsburgh and I'm glad to see it... though I think a lot of the defensive problems are systemic and not related to personnel.

    Horton signed with Blue Jackets. He must never want to win a cup again.

    I've always wanted Parros in Pittsburgh. Just for the Mustache.


    And having Scuderi back is awesome. Best news of the offseason thus far. Although I have a hard time seeing Despres in a top four pairing now.

    Yeah I am very curious to see what shakes out in Pittsburgh. We'll definitely see some trades as they're WAY too close to the cap for next season and AFAIK they're still short a few players.

    Cookie moves on to the Wild :( I understand why the Pens didn't resign him, but I will miss him.

    Aaaand Boston gets Iginla... which is good since Bylsma had no ....ing clue how to use him :facepalm: Still hugely frustrated that the Pens never put him on right wing with Sid and let him play

    Surprised we took Iginla after him basically saying he didn't want to play with us, but I'm fine with the move.

    #1 thing I'm least interested in for the '14 season? Re-learning the names on each line :lol:
