    WSH didn't have Orpik. They beat us 4 of 6 games, and the ones we won were stolen by Neuvirth....in one, I don't think we made it into double digit...

    And who will be a first line player? Couturier? As much as I love him, that's wishful thinking today. And it will continue to be wishful thinking...

    Here's where I'm lost in your reasoning: how is signing someone like Vanek at $2.6M for one to 2 years going to take us into Purgatory? How is...

    And Ryan White (who is an inferior skater to Weise) got 1/$1M. I am categorically against giving a 4th line player a 4 year deal. The ONLY way I...

    So it's better to give a 4 year, $9.4M deal to a guy you KNOW is a fourth line player than it is to give out 1/2 year deals to middle-6 players? ...

    If you like mediocre guys who can't finish, then sure, Raffl is your guy. He's a nice third line. He has no business being dragged around by one of...

    Under 4M? In what world? If he puts up a comparable year to this one, he's going to get Barrie-level money. You're probably looking at 5.5M+, maybe...

    Vanek to DET -- 1/$2.6. So annoying. Another missed opportunity. Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk

    I could care less about Gordon. It infuriates me that WSH signed Connolly for a measly $800k. That's a guy Hextall should've been all over. Offensive...

    Duchene would likely cost us MDZ and Schenn -- maybe a bit less. While Sakic did take more than a few hits to the head, he's not as dumb as...

    Yeah -- Carle got overpaid big time. He should probably call Pronger and thank him for transforming him from a middling defenseman to a guy that a...

    Let's all be honest here for a second: Voracek is a not a bonafide 30-goal scorer. He's never really come close to it, either (career high of 23...

    Agreed. Promise him a chance to play top line minutes with Giroux and/or Voracek and a shiny new contract. That, and he might be helpful to...

    Connolly and Pirri will both receive relatively small deals -- you're looking at something in the 2/$3M or 3/$5M range; nothing there should impede...
