Salary caps suck


We have placed defenseman Tony DeAngelo on unconditional waivers.

happy retirement to Thomas Greiss

did not expect Jarry to sign with the Pens long term - he was not good the few times I saw him play this year

my understanding is that they had limited options and considered him the least-bad one. certainly the fans aren’t thrilled about it

Oppenheimer is the 2nd consecutive Christopher Nolan movie to feature a prominent cameo by former New York Rangers forward Sean Avery. this is very strange and important to me.

Loled at this

Can confirm Phil Kessel's day with the Stanley Cup was today.

And once again, he had it in Toronto.

What a legend.

VGK Phil Kessel keeps it relatively quiet (except for the birthday party 🙂) after his 3rd Cup victory. BTW, there were no hot dogs. (Toronto, ON). #StanleyCup @GoldenKnights @NHL @HockeyHallFame

3 cups since 2016, wonder if that's the most in the time period

Not to drag you into this cesspool, but there's now a hockey Immaculate Grid:

I got 6/9 on today's Original Six-only grid...which was kind of a miracle.

Start flinging Sutters in there and see what happens

wanna see how many days in a row i can use jagr

today's grid really points out the ridiculousness of ~winnipeg jets franchise history~

no one cares about the sanctity of coyotes/thrashers records! give the old jets back to the new jets

seems like a lot of money/term for tom wilson, but when you find a guy who can score some goals *and* injure opponents you need to lock that down

Last week I looked at the 10 worst contracts in hockey.
Tom Wilson's new deal would've ranked fifth.

*points at thread title like Buck Turgidson*

I think only a caps fan could love tom wilson so probably all for the better for us lowercase folks

pretty pleased by this trade for the penguins

- brought in a 100-point right-handed defenseman
- dumped two of hextall’s worst acquisitions (granlund, petry)
- gained $3m in cap space?!?!

mookieproof, Monday, 7 August 2023 00:51 (one month ago) link

incredible for the habs too

so i guess that means the sharks lose? :(

sean gramophone, Monday, 7 August 2023 01:56 (one month ago) link

Good trade on the books for PIT, but they are still incredibly old and top heavy (as befitting a 3-time champion refusing to tear it down).

Ah, that sucks, always kinda felt like the Sabres were my second team

three weeks pass...

classic babcock

loooooool babcock out

mookieproof, Sunday, 17 September 2023 20:19 (one week ago) link

do kind of hate bissonette being proved right tho

mookieproof, Sunday, 17 September 2023 20:30 (one week ago) link

Biz is a major league chode, but this was one helluva scoop by him. CBJ is a super young team, Babs thought he could pull his old stunts with them, and instantly lost their trust. The team will be better off without him, and I don't think he'll ever coach in the NHL again. He's a bully.

Babcock departs with the fourth-best win percentage in Blue Jackets franchise history.
