    Yeah I'll be shocked if Carolina doesn't match that.

    Stuff like this from Anders Lee's agent cracks me up too

    “There was NEVER a moment on this FA Day where it was even a possibility that Anders Lee was going to leave @NYIslanders no matter what else happened. This type of “FAKE NEWS” fries my bananas! Anders Lee said the most important quality in a teammate is “LOYALTY” and he meant it.”

    Yeah because if somebody had offered him $9 or $10 million for 7 years instead of the Islanders $7 he would have turned it down :lol: The only reason you wait unti free agency to sign is to see if you get a better offer, otherwise you would have taken an 8 year deal BEFORE free agency opened...

    Fucking Leaf "fans" have been saying this about Marner. As if he hasn't been one of our best players and arguably our most consistent. Which, to be fair, isn't actually saying all that much but...

    Eh before that series against the Islanders I would have probably said yes but now I'm not so sure.... he either didn't adjust for the opponent or the players didn't listen to him. That worries me. That said a long extension seems to be the kiss of death for Pens coaches :lol:

    In other news ZAR filed for salary arbitration.

    I'm waiting to see what GMJR does for his encore since we have 3 RFAs and $1.5 million left under the cap. I keep hoping he dumps Johnson but not sure I see that happening sadly... and because of that idiot contract buying him out isn't really an option either.

    I guess all of the RFAs are going to pull a Nylander and hold out for a Matthews 5-year contract.

    Looks that way...

    For the Pens Blueger did sign a 2 year deal so that leaves ZAR and Petterson...

    I am still in shocked disbelief over the 6 year contract for Tanev :facepalm:

    Edmonton and Calgary must be run by two of the weirdest management groups... first they swap goalies, now Lucic traded for Neal? Even with the sweeteners :nuts:

    Scissons... 7 years for a mere $2.86m aav, I didn't know contracts like that ever got handed out :spock: Can anyone think of another player that has signed a comparable contract in both term and value?

    Yeah that's because you don't normally sign depth players to long term contracts... unless you're GMJR :lol:

    Yeah, a healthy Hall with Hughes, Gusev, Palmieri, Hischier, and Simmonds. They should score more anyway.

    I think they will still be a "bubble" team, still not confident in their goaltending to think of them doing damage in the playoffs.

    Yeah, they'd need to make a big move for a goaltender or somehow luck out with the next Binnington to be taken seriously after all the upfront moves they've made

    I thought Ottawa was over the cap floor... why on earth would you relieve a divisional rival (Tampa) of a heavy contract (Callahan) and basically let them resign Point so easily...

    Huge contract extension for Vasilevsky too... I swear Tampa feels like the only team that the salary cap doesn't apply to. State/provincial taxes should NOT be such an influential factor across the league... wake up Bettman.
