    No no no... You don't get away that easy! You have to post something going on around the NHL!!!
    This, garnetpalmetto, is an outrage.

    In other news if Van loses to CBJ the Flames will pass them in the standings. However van has 2 games in hand.

    Vancouver has no goalie. I think they are in trouble.

    Nucks losing Markstrom is such a massive blow that there's a strong chance (imo) that they miss the playoffs now. What a shitty outcome for them

    Most hockey analysts had the Canucks vying with Anaheim for 6th or 7th in the Pacific at the beginning of the season. Considering their overall problems with injuries the team has performed well above expectations.

    While it may be disappointing in the short term for the fans, the Canucks are well positioned to take a larger step next season.

    They have over 20 million tied up in dead weight contracts like Sutter, Beagle, Roussel, Eriksson, Baertschi, and Spooner's buyout. Their blue line is pretty suspect too, Myers isn't very good, Edler is over the hill, Benn is crap, Tanev is a UFA at the end of the season. Plus Luongo's recapture penalty.

    Jacob Markstrom has been playing way over his head and is probably the only reason they're in a playoff spot aside from the West being crap. He'll need a new contract too. With all the talk about Benning being such a great scout he should really have been able to fill those depth positions internally instead of overpaying role players. He's been there nearly 6 years now.

    Upcoming RFA that a GM can take to the cleaners in negotiations. That's what Treliving lives for

    In before Treliving signs him to a 6 year 1.9M dollar contract.

    Dumb. This doesn't actually fix anything, it just changes what they'll be fixating on in reviews. Players will take advantage of the extra half stride and create just as many contentious decisions.

    The cap this year is 81.5 so we're looking at a minimum 2.5 jump

    Think about how the goal line works in hockey. It's not really a line, but a vertical plane.

    Ok, I get that. I guess. But I dont get that, so what it would mean in the future if this was accepted as a rule. Soccer style offside, where soccer has moving offside line (or plane) and hockey has a static one

    I guess it means that in order to stay on-side, the players don't have to have their skate on the ice on the other side of the blue line anymore. It's enough that the skate (or any body part?) crosses that vertical plane.

    Ok, thanks. I was focusing on the wrong stuff and words even though Anglesmith explained it pretty much perfectly, now that I think of it

    That's a decent increase in the cap; Flames will have between 19.4M to 23.4M in space. Shame the UFA forward class is so incredibly weak; Toffoli's the only decent right shot forward available. A pile of left shot left wingers there however in Hall, Hoffman, Dadanov, Galchenyuk, and Granlund.

    And Hall's definitely getting 11M+ now; just hope it's not from the Flames.
