    Yeah but the NHL had already said they would accept applications after the deadline so I'd say wait and see what happens :2c:

    So the Habs signed Semin for $1.1 million for one year... at that price he's a steal. He's also likely to show up as it's a one year deal and he needs to earn another contract.

    I would have been alright with the Pens signing him to a similar deal. But for the first time in a decade it almost feels like we have a decent crop of wingers...almost.

    I'm especially curious to see how he'll adapt to Therrien :ugh:

    So the Pens traded Sutter and a 3rd round pick to the Canucks for Nick Bonino, an AHL defenseman and a 2nd round pick and signed Fehr to a 3 year deal. It's an interesting move that looks good on paper. It will be interesting to see how it actually shakes out on the ice since Sutter is a clutch player that brought a serious shorthanded threat that neither Fehr or Bonino replace.

    The move also leaves no chance of seeing Sundqvist in the NHL this season.

    Flyers extend Couturier. 6 years @ 4.33m per.

    May have spoken too soon, didn't realize Fehr is injured so Sundqvist may actually get a shot in the NHL while he's recovering.

    ^ I'll take it. We essentially managed to flip Brandon Sutter into two centers for the same cap hit. More than anything, we need depth and cap space. Which JR accomplished.

    He certainly managed to cash in considering he hasn't really come close to the potential he showed in juniors.

    No argument at all, while I like Sutter these were great moves for the team. Trading Sutter and a draft pick for a roughly statistically equivalent player, a defensive prospect, and a higher draft pick was an awesome move. And Fehr, assuming he recovers fully, was a great acquisition.

    Up until this past season he was the team's second most important skater. Last year he was the third most important skater. That's a steal of a deal for the Flyers. If he stops playing the toughest minutes in the league he'll be a 50 point Selke caliber center.

    Damn, I take it back. Jake Voracek is the one that managed to cash in. I'm still having trouble wrapping my mind around the sizes of these contracts over the past couple years. :eek:

    Voracek is worth a big contract, a little more annual money than I would have expected.

    I am considering driving to Boston for the Heritage Classic between the Bruins/Habs, no clue what to expect for ticket prices?


    With Galchenyuk resigned, I can be happy with the Habs' lineup next year.

    ^ I'm assuming it may be along the lines of the Winter Classic, which starts at about $500 (US) per ticket for the most inexpensive sections. I had some friends try to get tickets for the Red Wings/Maple Leafs WC and even as well off as those guys were, they said it was way too expensive.

    Slow news day. This is kinda awesome. I remember watching #1 where Stefan misses the open net... just ridiculous.

    I'm trying to go to the Winter Classic since I live in Boston and would love to see us best the Habs on New Years Day; at Gillette of all places, which won't happen again in my lifetime if I had to put money on it.

    However, I'm estimating prices around $300ish since 500 seems absurd for that many people to buy tickets for

    ^ It varies based on teams and location, but you never know. Don't underestimate the legions of Habs fans willing to make the trek for the rivalry.

    New CBA structure. If it was 5 years ago his contract would have been 12 years at $5.5m per like Richards/Carter, but you can't do that anymore.
