  1. The really stupid thing is the rule never existed when Van signed Luongo to that long deal. GMs got hung out to dry after the fact when a new CBA came in.
  2. Off by a half mill on the longer deal...a fair deal IF he produces on offense like his rookie year +.
  3. Well coach...no matter who the guy is or how valuable...you just cant hand over blank cheques. Being fiscally prudent and somewhat fair is indeed the GMs job. If someone is being unreasonable you just dont cave. In Provs case any left over money is mostly going to Konecny...who is a young up and comer in his own right...pay Provs to much and you take yourself out of range for Kons.
  4. Was just tossing stuff at the wall.. Both players have warts. Attitude can be adjusted, especially when your career is on the line. Having injury problems is not in Morins control and may dictate his career path going forward. Rather have a guy with offensive upside than nothing for a 2015 1st rounder...or a 5th round etc. I'd throw Josh on the Phantoms and see how he does...
  5. I would lean towards the agent, but sure...would not be the first time a NHL team employed that tactic.
  6. I think the 10 mill number is sly posturing on the part of Provs agent. All part of the game. If you shoot for the stars with 10...the Flyers are kinda forced to start around 6. I see a longer 5-7 yr deal at about 7.2 and a shorter bridge deal about 7.9 mill. I believe he will be a decent bargain at 8 mill in just a few short years. The talent is glaringly obvious. He hurt his leverage with a poor season...but his agent AND Fletch both know a rebound is inevitable. It is this premise that will score Provs 7 mill+.
  7. Not saying dump Morin right now...BUT if he looks like he might not be in the future plans after an extended long training camp look....how about Morin for Josh Ho-Sang straight up? Both players have warts.. but the talent is there with Josh..if he gets his head on straight...which happens when your back is to the wall in what could be his last chance to secure a regular roster spot.
  8. I think his injury history will not work in his favour...however, valid point...the regime change gives him a somewhat longer leash. I dont think his skating improves much at this point, his ticket to the NHL will be hockey sense and defensive zone awareness.
  9. It is do or die time for Sam. He does not have to be stunning but solid and dependable are a must at this point. There comes a time in every prospects time line that demands progress, regardless of d men taking longer and injuries in this case. We have reached that point. He simply has to put it all together this fall. Another injury would spell his inevitable end in the org...his fault or not. There comes a time when you have to pull the plug. I have been a big proponent of patience with Sam..but the time to deliver has indeed arrived.
  10. One of the positives of promoting a hard working guy like NAK is NCAA free agents see they have a legit shot if they play hard in the AHL.
  11. Tony Twist, Probert and the Grim Reaper.
  12. At least I know the answer to my question now...would take MUCH more than a quarter mill to entice wife licking...his and her blindfolds for a half mill?
  13. Would you lick puss out of a festering wound for a quarter million?
  14. Slight overpayment. Still think he has 40 pt upside...with the right minutes played and linemates. We shall see... but even at 20 pts he provides speed and makes the team tougher to play against.
  15. Odd season for Laine...almost broke the monthly goal record with maybe the most torrid November of all time. Rest of the year he scored 6 goals. He's kind of a 1 trick pony that has not shown consistency with that 1 trick. He is gonna want to get paid for projection and upside...I'd let somebody else take the chance. Not enough cap space anyways. He will either score 50 or score 30 and get paid like a 50 guy. Lots to like...but the Jets are in a real conundrum here.
