NHL Offseason thread

Who is excited for the draft today? The Blues have 3 first round draft picks, will they keep them or trade them? It's the start of a new era, exciting times

Anybody think the Flyers paid waaay too much for Hartnell and Timonen? If the cap is 50 million like it's being speculated, then they will have over 20% of the cap tied into just those 2 players.

The Leafs did resign Sundin. That's something.

Is Chara staying in Boston?

8 days until the unrestricted free agency begins and the Isles haven't resigned Smith or Blake. I don't care about Blake so much, but I hope they keep Smyth. And then bring in either Drury or Briere. They also did drop Yashin, and resigned Bergenheim who missed last season. I think he'll fit in nice if he picks up where he left off in 2005-2006. And there's a rumour that Peca might come back.

Hockey talk I've missed it!

Is Souray going to return to the Habs or will he go to California to be with his child?

Apparently, according to RDS, they offered him quite a measly figure - guess they figure they already have their D-man in Markov.

I'd miss Souray though

They shoulda traded Souray when he was worth something this year before the trade deadline, scoring goals. Now he's just a d-man with a great slapshot who can't skate back to cover his own end worth a shit.

True, but I guess Gainey figured he might help them make the playoffs.

New jerseys are coming in for next season. I'm eagerly awaiting (dreading?) what the Habs' will look like.

The Bruins went with a retro look and it looks AMAZING You can't lose with classic original six jerseys.

Bruins

Well, just three hours until the free agent signing period.

The "salary cap" went up yesterday to $50.3 million which means we might see the return of the $10 million player(no one player can take up more than 20 percent of a team's cap space). I think we'll see a lot of senseless signings which makes me wonder why we had to lose a full year in the first place.

Well the Blues signed Tkachuk to a 2 year deal worth 8 million. Might be a little much, but I have a feeling some of the deals are gonna be ridiculous starting tomorrow.

Did the Blues fleece ATL or what? ATL gaves the Blues a 1st and 3rd rounder in this years draft PLUS a 2nd rounder in next years draft, and a roster filler in Metropolit, all for 18 games of Tkachuk and no playoff wins.

Buahahahaha, way to go JD.

Remind me again why we lost a full season of hockey?

Daniel Briere to Philadelphia for 8 years $52 million?

Enough said.

Rangers got Gomes and Drury.
Briere to Philly.
Blake going to Toronto.

This is madness!

I believe the Ducks signed Mathieu Schnieder, and Niedermeyer hasn't even retired yet
