    I have absolutely nothing against what Tampa did, they played by the rules that were in place. Brisebois is just running circles around everybody right now, that dude is so fucking smart. If it was not for hockey, he would be doing the same thing in a different field.

    he is probably the smartest man in the nhl, not just gm. Everything

    This makes no sense to me. Why mess with a good thing to put Reaves in?

    I’ve heard some absolutely insane things about how dumb a lot of the higher up people in the NHL are. The league is run by a bunch of guys whose real education ended when they turned 16.

    i think that narrative comes from the stupid boston fans, tukka rask is probably not top 5 but he is a very good goalie. And he is part of this team, from all account he is loved by his teammates. If boston gets rid of him It would be like Pitt getting rid of flower. If they have a really good young goalie coming in(not Matt murray. I remember someone getting abused for saying Matt murray sucked but that’s not the point here) then it’s ok but you still get rid of a very good goalie that provides stability every single year. I don’t know their prospect but I bet he is not ready like vasy was when tb traded bishop.

    i think the bruins organisation is smart so I think they will keep tukka and slowly take more games away from him to give whatever prospect they have more games and find the next guy. It’s such a luxurious safety net. Pitt had that for a while and it won them some cups

    pretty much every team is in cap hell, getting Swayman on 2 more years at a mil with a way cheaper veteran gives them a chance to get depth which was original point

    league isn’t the same as 5 years ago, Pitt wouldn’t be able to keep Fleury with current cap

    Also seems like there’s gonna be way more ELC and vets on the minimum getting chances. Stars are still gonna get paid, depth guys aren’t gonna get shit unless someone is dumb enough to make Pierre a GM

    You are right, pens wanted to keep fleury but they bet on murray which made sense at the time. Can’t fault them. I don’t know the bruins situation cap wise but they better take the next few years very seriously because they are about to fall off very hard

    Boston’s problem seems to be overpaying depth forwards. Top line and McAvoy all have great contracts.

    Looks like Krejci is an UFA coming off making $7.25 mil per. He’s good but that’s a lot and he’s old.

    What a complete disappointment from the Avs. They have the roster to win 2 cups in this 4-5 year window. Currently 0/2.

    LeBrun says Seattle can sign a FA to an 8 year contract. They also get an early FA tampering period prior to the expansion draft. If they sign a FA before the expansion draft, that counts as their pick from that players former team.

    Dougie Hamilton is basically Fraser Crane, so you know he’s going to Carolina.

    Also, Seattle can’t buy out any players until 2022.
