is there any live tv coverage? tsn is slacking online

It's better to have tons of people searching all over and bringing it back here.

12:00 p.m. two year offers on the table to Ruutu and Hall. 5yr 18 million offer on the table to Orpik. 7yrs - 52 million to Hossa.

Where are you guys getting this information??

Is there any video feed of this new free agency news?

Happy Canada Day to all the others Canucks hanging around c-blog.

Interesting point about the Flames getting Rene Bourque: Bourque is an RFA who's filed for arbitration. A team with any player going to arbitration has access to the August buyout window.

all my predicted lines are shot to shit now! hahahaha

stoosh

thx for backing me up on exactly what I said about Stone/Filewich a few days ago [must clear waivers]
that's why I have them on my 3rd + 4th lines to start the season.


I think the sticking point to signing Rolston is gonna be the # of years, NOT the money....
he'll probably end up getting a 3 or 4 year deal, for a reasonable amount of scratch [3.5-4 mil per], IMO


Chase Sampson = epic fail.

hmmmm...I thought college kids knew EVERYTHING.

so malkin was full of shit when he said he was taking a discount, oh well.

From Dr. Mirtle

Carolina signed defenceman Anton Babchuk, who spent last year with Omsk Avangard in Russia, to a one-year, $1-million deal

Jonny Veesdoorwall said...

I hope we get Baron Davis.

Maybe Shero's watching Charmed

Stilly said...

@dan

Malkin did kind of take a discount. He'd make 10 mil easy if he refused to sign and became a UFA next season.

Lady Jaye said...

@colin > It depends on how bad the check is ripped. Take it to a teller and find out. Some of them won't take it, some will if they're being nice.

Raybin, Hossa is accepting the minimum wage.

Yay for Dupes/Malkin. . .Malkin's not a surprise, but I wasn't sure if we were keeping Dupuis. Solid.

Free agency = not as surprising as I expected. . .yet.

Another forward for Tampa Bay. I hope Mike Smith has a competent therapist on his speed dial, because he's going to be in need of someone to vent to after this next season is done.

Those are two decent lines. Do they have enough money for any decent D or the other two lines (assuming GR doesn't play all three positions on both the 3rd and 4th lines)?

I don't think these guys are going to pull the trigger on making multi-million dollar deals mere minutes after the shop has opened. [esp. those players where this will be their 1st big payday contract]

Gary Roberts can't hear your boos, he has testosterone and violence clogging his ears.

Vanessa Day said...

This thing is moving so fast. I can't keep up.

I bet GR will miss the fans and the WWGRD stuff. Florida people just aren't into hockey. When I saw the Pens in March vs. the panthers, there were more Pens fans than panthers fans in attendance.

those nhl scouting reports commercials crack me up every time

TOP RIGHT!

I'm pretty sure there was a Kevin Lowe on Lil Wayne PS last week. Solid PS.

Montreal is preparing to up the ante on Hossa.

xocharmedchildox said...

Gary roberts and malone are one of those players you continue to love even after they are gone. Their impact on the team, city, and fanbase will live on.

Jennie said...

By the sounds of things, Double J hasn't changed much.

I WANT YOU TO WANT MEEEEEEEEEE.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

Why would we sign Melichar and for that much? Where did you hear about that? Free Candy, Eaton, and everyone is before him ...

Dellapina thinks we are next option after Rangers for Jagr ...

Flyer Hater said...

Dellapenis thinks Jagr is a possibility.

xuscbausp said...

IHK: imagine living here. does hockey reports on sny/msg during the season.

is he suggesting that the pens should offer Double J what they offered Ho$$a?

TheFandangler said...

Shitty Eklund is saying Huselius to Pitt major possibility. Too bad Eklund is crap but it's something to discuss.

TheNWChica said...

No work is getting done today, I can tell. :)

But I'm happy about Pascal and Corey Perry too.

I'm ready to call the authorities to check on Dr. Mirtle. He hasn't updated his blog for 15 minutes. I think someone from buzz on the turd might have killed him for giving credible information.

I Have Kasparaitis said...

@xuscbausp: I'm so sorry ...

Yeah he just suggested Jagr getting signed for Hossa's money ...

Matthew said...

NHL Network: "If Hossa is out of Pittsburgh, that becomes the place that makes the most sense for Jagr to land if he does not return to New York."
