  1. Hamilton is better than Jones... If he wants 9.5 x 7 years, I'm good with it. We need to fill the spot

  2. The Offer has to start with Kotkaniemi, Romanov and a 1st rounder for Buffalo to even consider it. You may have to add from there too.

  3. Disagree on the proposal ... it perpetuates inequality between high revenue and low revenue teams ... what I propose is a "take-home pay" salary cap (i.e., after taxes) ... teams would be allowed to issue player "pay cheques" totalling not more than cap ceiling. or less then the cap floor ... the team would report the player's salary to the government as whatever the appropriate gross amount would be to produce the net salary and pay taxes accordingly ... it would also mean that players being traded would be neither advantaged nor disadvantaged by their relocation ... the conversion to such a system could be based on the tax situation for the franchise with which a contract was signed.

  5. I'd give Hamilton up to 10 million per year. It might mean that we have to replace Denault by Evans but the resulting roster is better than anything with Denault and any other Dman we can find. The extra 3 million won't prevent us from keeping our young stars long term. We might lose someone like Armia or Drouin in a couple of years but it is still worth it.

  6. I disagree... Hamilton is a huge asset and if he can be signed as a UFA then he's a FREE huge asset that can be traded for other assets if it doesn't work out as long as there is no trade restrictions in his contract. I say go for it... hes still very young and would be 35 at the end of this 7 year deal... if he even wants to sign for 7. Likely 5 years so he can cash in huge again

  7. It took about 6 hours to write start to finish.... I made it shorter than previous years, which took 10+ hours. It was fueled by Red Bull. Just finished an Ottawa Radio Hit. CFRA 580 AM Now i go sleep.

  8. Just my opinion, but You should be more concerned with victim blaming than with personal pot shots Saying she deserved it and is a puck bunny or a slut is ####ing gross, and if you allow that on this board, maybe i have to reconsider if i post here. Disagreements are one thing.... the victim blaming in here from one poster is quite another.

  11. The playoff run proved that the Habs could compete in the playoffs without Drouin, yes. But it did not prove a thing about whether the Habs would have been a better or worse team with Drouin. Might they have won another game or two against the Lightning? We'll never know.

  12. He is a 43.4pt/82gm winger and like you say after 7 yrs that is what he is, which aint too bad.

  13. Drouin has played in the playoffs twice. He wasnt a liability in the 2020 playoffs... nor was he in liabilty in the 2016 playoffs in Tampa. In fact, in both years he was one of the best players on his team.

  14. My enduring memory of Weber will probably be Game 4 of the Finals. Playing with a broken body that should not even have been on the ice, determined that his team would not face the ignominity of being swept, he turned in an absolutely dominant performance. Weber, more than any other player, willed that victory. He had nothing left after that. But that was a truly heroic effort. You could see in his devastated expression on the bench in the dying moments of Game 5 how much he had paid and how much the end of it all hurt. Godspeed, Shea Weber. (And yes - if he wants to coach, we should get him behind a bench).
