I expect the Flyers to make a big trade to make up for Giroux's planned vacation to Uranus.

Did you see Evander Kane's tweet about it?  Priceless trolling.

Hawks don't have any room to pursue anyone.  At all.  That's before renegotiating Toews and Kane at $12 million per.  Lots of rumors about Sharp on the block. 

Chicago, Boston and a couple of others are really up against it given the cap came in somewhere between 1 and 4 million less than most had planned for.  The FA frenzy is largely done, but I think we'll see some surprising trades with what could be perceived to be poor returns for some established and more expensive players just so some of the teams can make it under the cap. 

Lord knows I hope the Jets can score on a couple of deals like that because the only team we have a shot at finishing ahead of in our division is Nashville.  Given the Preds are signing our castoffs (Olli Jokinen) that doesn't bode well for them.  I'm not convinced Neal isn't the beneficiary of his linemates but this will be the team we find that out on.  I don't think our forwards are worse than theirs, Neal included.  It's really just our goaltending that is completely horrendous. 


The East is wildly overpaying...  It is comical.

Boy are they ever.  I get Winnipeg isn't a destination but I'm also not unhappy we're not throwing around stupid dollars either.  That always comes back to hurt a team. 

I'm especially laughing at the NYI who are so desperate to have not given a lottery ticket to the Sabres.  That may be a little hollow given we may be in position to win the lottery as well.

Is it too soon to fire on general manager?  At least the Pens lost theirs.

I'm predicting bottom five finish for next year.  Division is too tough and unlike Vancouver/Calgary/Edmonton, we have no fellow patsies to play against.  I'm really not sure we're better than Calgary and Edmonton.  Florida, Isles, Canes could all finish ahead of us.  Only Buffalo seems a clearly worse team as they'll have trouble making the cap floor. 

Jeez, Chris Thorburn for three years?  Ugh.  No buyout of the 46th ranked goalie? 

We better get McDavid or Eichel.

I take it the last post is meant to be ironic.

Nope, he's a prick.

Plus they kill Tom Cruise over and over again. What's not to like?

He doesn't stay dead?

Whirlwind, Red She-Hulk, and Thor arrived today from HTS.com.

I check, I check, I check, I check.  Finally I get bored.  New crap pops up and I miss out.  Hilarious.  The only line I'm actually collecting and I can't even manage to find the stuff I want.   ::)

Nada for the voice of Shaggy?

Could you resend to the Golden Girls team? Marin doesn't seem to have gotten the invite.
Done.  If this one doesn't go through, PM me her email addy and I'll send again.

Renewed the league and invites have been sent.  If you aren't planning on returning, please let me know and I'll open up your spot to someone else. 

No ability to sign up for pick'em or suicide pools yet.

Sellers can't leave negative or neutral feedbacks anymore, so no need to worry about retaliation. The worst the seller could do is leave a positive feedback with a negative written comment, but that is something eBay will remove.

Wow - they can't? Nice!

Nah, not really. 

While I appreciate your perspective given your situation, only having one side able to honestly comment on the situation is hardly the best.  I've dealt with dickish buyers enough that I'd love to neg them and they would have deserved it.  But there's no option for an irresponsible buyer.  Three weeks to pay then leave comments to the extent that shipping was slow?  Seriously?

Pablo Hildago had a rather cryptic tweet back in December that he had good news for Willrow Hood fans but more or less couldn't say anything.  To me that means he is going to be in something coming up...probably just a cameo in Rebels but who knows...Episode VII:Son of Hood

I still want my signed figure  >:(

Lots of goalies we can get cheap in UFA.  No real need to hand something useful to the Wild for something much less than useful for a second year in a row. 

My real worry is whether our GM actually believes that Pavs is a true #1 going into next year.  The rhetoric around here is that we're weak defensively so it's not on the goalie.  Which is a complete load because while we're not super strong on D, nor are we completely weak either.  The goalie's job is to stop shots.  Period. Pavelec has done a poor job of that for much of the time he's been in Winnipeg. 

As for Bryz, I'll give the guy credit, he's handled coming to Winnipeg well with the visiting teams.  Crazy Ivan.

Pens just fired their coach and GM.

Not the coach.  Yet.  They seem to be leaving that for the new GM to do.  Weird.

I think we're 1, maybe 2 players (big-time goal-scoring forward, right-shot stud D) away from being a true cup contender, but we're definitely trending in that direction and are more than just first round fodder now.

I'd like to express something resembling confidence in my team, but with the goalie we have all I can be assured of is a top ten pick in 2015.  I guess there's some consolation we could win the draft lottery.  ::)

Saw Black Sabbath last week and I have to say, they were fantastic.  Ozzy was a bit out there for sure, but held it together for the most part.  Tried to walk off the stage about half way through and I really do think he thought the show was over at that point.   :D
