    I don’t know how Tampa manages to keep signing guys. I swear the next guy they sign is going to pay THEM to play there.

    The NHL missed the mark when they put the panthers in sunrise they could have built a decent following if they played in Miami itself instead of the burbs.

    Took a quick look at the remaining un-signed RFA's and I gotta say, it could be a solid team....except they'd have no goalie

    Tkachuk - Point - Rantenen
    Laine - Konecny - Marner
    Connor - Kempe - Boeser
    Fiala - Barbashev - Beauvillier

    Werenski - McAvoy
    Provorov - Carlo
    Schuldt - Deangelo

    And the NHLPA will also not exercise its option to re-open.

    Strike/lockout averted for now

    I know all the Sportsnet guys get bashed mercilessly on the main board, but I think a lot of the ones that were let go were quite good.

    Kypreos provided good insight from a player's perspective and I always loved John Shannon's explanation of the parallax view.

    I know the multi-billion dollar TV deal hasn't worked out as planned. But I just fear the network will try to become cool and hip, which will likely not attract the younger demographic, and could turn away older, loyal fans.

    I find it absolutely shocking that an agent doesn't think his clients are paid enough. :thumbd:

    I really doubt we will see any kind of a labor disruption before the next CBA

    The players primary issue is the escrow and that can be hashed out. The players WANT the Olympics not so much for the 10% that would go but for the 90% that would get 2 weeks off.

    The owners want to get Seattle running smoothly and the next national TV contract could increase by 3 or 4 times.

    Was McDavid even a 'max' contract? Its crazy how few of those have been signed in hockey I think its been a while since the last maybe Ovi? The NBA has to have at least 50+ guys getting the largest amount the team is allowed to offer.
