    I heard the Oilers and Flames were in on him...and I believe the Oilers offered 2 yrs @ 7M and Flames offered 3 @7M..and neither team wanted to fork up the extra year.

    This is just deflection responses though. If we're talking about the term social justice, that's something that if you defined the word would probably be something that you'd want your society to strive for and celebrate when achieved. If we pointed out the hypocrisies of others and then smeared and killed their causes or ideals because of it, we'd have no causes or ideals because everyone's a hypocrite on some level or another regardless of ideology. It's just perverting the language to smear those you're associating with the term rather than an actual reflection of the term and what it means.

    If people are hypocrites in regards to their own ideology that they militantly push on others than what is that ideology other than self serving exploitation? Communism as defined is a noble cause that one could see society striving for and celebrating (as many have and many still do), yet the actual real world ramifications are completely different than the ideal.

    This thread is full of people who just wanna laugh at the contract. Watch the man play. You wouldnt know his age the way he skates. He's on pace for another quiet 25-30 goal campaign playing with a struggling Kadri and a terrible player in Komarov. If you really think age is a factor, you simply dont know what the hell you're talking about.

    Welcome to politics in 2018. People are hypocrites and are loud which also includes complete misunderstanding of terms.

    Well apparently someone offfered more for Clarkson too. So nothing would shock me. Still think it's a ridiculous contract but GMs never seem to learn.
