Lots of rumors about us being interested in Lindros. Not so sure I like that idea, even if he came cheap...

Rumors from Vancouver radio that Naslund has resigned.

First huge trade of the new CBA era:
Blues trade Chris Pronger to the Oilers for Eric Brewer and 2 other Dmen.

Don't blame you in the slightest.  He's never produced what he was expected to, and spends half the time out.  That's a rough one to take even cheap...  With a cap now the owners will be thinking a lot more about guys going down with injuries, and those who constantly seem to do so.

Better, but not classic.  Might have had his hair cut for draft day though.  Wonder how many teeth he's missing?

Did you guys miss Gelinas going to the Panthers? 

I gotta say, as somebody without a team, this has been the most interesting couple of days in hockey in quite some time.  Surprised at a few of the salaries but mostly pleased overall.

I just can't wait to see Hullie back in action.  After he retires, I'm retiring from hockey too.

 :P

Flyers have signed Forsberg.  They are now over the cap.  Rumor is JR is heading to LA.

Y'know, the big winner in this is probably TMP International.  Just think of the retros. ::)

I already posed that question to Mark about a update set.  He seemed luke warm to the idea.  Said something about how they don't want to use old poses because of scale issues and how they feel their product has improved over the years.  I countered with a list of players who are almost all in newer, larger scale poses.  We'll see what kind of figs we get.  They could really do a whole set of updated repaints.

 ;D

Anything that makes Colorado weaker is OK in my book! 

Colorado minus Roy?  minus Foote?  minus Forsberg?

That equals good news for the rest of us in the division... if only Vancouver would have lost Naslund!   ;)

I don't understand what Nashville is doing. We've haven't signed anyone, and I don't even hear any rumors about us being interested in anyone anymore. Screwing this up big time...

I think the reality is that your team is one of those clubs this CBA was created for: a team that has no intention of spending.
