    This what I've been saying, a twit GM (hello Chia) does otherwise, a few other twits follow suite and it becomes the rule? Hell no. Bridge contracts are an important part of the salary structure in the cap world, skipping that step is a colossal mistake

    There are cases where it makes sense but definitely not for guys who start playing in the NHL a year or two after being drafted.

    I make fun of the Leafs all the time but I actually have sympathy. Their GM has not only allowed the inmates to run the asylum but those inmates are going to be paroled in their mid 20’s leaving Toronto in Suckville with no stars and feeling the effects of that horrific Muzzin deal losing 3 assets including a first round pick and a very good prospect- and the Marleau deal where they traded another first rounder

    This will catch up in 4-6 years

    The only thing they have going is the guy who authored the Salary Cap was hired and has showed Scooby Doo-bas how to circumvent it

    Pathetic

    Someone with some good young D might be able to pry Laine from them the way things are going.

    I read on the main boards something rather funny. The poster was saying how Tavares gave the Isles a discount to help build the team. Isles never used that to stack the team around him. He goes to the Leafs and takes a lesser deal again and the kids all gobble up the money.

    Kid can move with the puck, very good at starting the rush from his own end and creating breakouts from below the goal line.

    Bruins need RHD prospects. If Dom approves, then I hope Boston gets him.

    As much as I don't want to trade Vaak, that is too hard to say no to.

    Also think Backes would have to go the other way adding another pick/prospect

    In a heartbeat. No chance WPG does it and no chance the Bruins would be able to get Laine under. contract without moving out Backes or Krug.

    Laine trade and signed at 9.5 with no additional trades. Backes in Providence, Killer and Moore on LTIR to start season and 13 forwards listed.
