    Chicago is pretty balsy here. I have no idea how the hell they're able to communicate this with a straight face.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/news/re...-to-equipment/

    At 38 years old, Marian Hossa figured to be nearing the end of a long NHL career, even if his lucrative 12-year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks lasts into the 2020s.

    No one, however, could have predicted that he might hang up the cleats due to an allergic reaction to hockey equipment.
    Yup, he's allergic to his hockey equipment.

    Chicago as we all know is deep in cap hell once again, and Hossa's $5.275m cap hit off the books gives them tons of room. The problem is, the contract was heavily front loaded, the next 4 years Hossa is getting paid only $1m. By having this problem, they can keep him on LTIR and not get cap penalized. Retirement at this stage would trigger a cap recapture penalty.

    This should be interesting.

    Looking forward to the draft tonight and all the movement that will come from it. Heard on Fan960 this morning reports of up to 12 deals in place to go with the expansion draft. Going to be a crazy night that leads into lots of moves the next few weeks

    Vegas expected to receive Shea Theodore as an incentive for picking up Clayton Stoner as part of their expansion draft from Anaheim. Thanks Bieksa!

    Don't really have a choice unless you're going to sit and refresh a website

    Not to mention the diving. But Oil fans are salty, so it's all good.

    Aside from Fleury, what an absolute abortion of a team that turned out to be in my eyes. A bunch of fourth liners lol

    Guess we'll see what happens at the draft. Oh, and why the fuck would Winnipeg trade them a first round for a third round??

    It was a first for first and 3rd. So they now have columbus first round and vegas gets winnipegs. So they dropped from 13 to 24 I believe. And that was because Enstrom was exposed (had no choice) and they really didn't want to lose him, that was the cost.

    Not sure why Winnipeg is so hell-bent on keeping Enstrom seeing as how their defense already looks pretty promising. I'd be happy to lose him and his cap hit and he even waived his NMC expecting to go to Vegas.

    Yeah, just looking at what was available, I think they had the opportunity to put together a somewhat respectable team, at least enough to be competitive in a few years, but I think GMGM was more focused on getting as many picks as he could.

    I also think it's funny how Dion's NMC led to Methot getting picked haha

    My god what a horrible team. Horrible name (are they a Jr. High School basketball team?), horrible jerseys as well. It's just a disaster all-round. The only people attending their games will be people looking for cheap tickets to see opposing teams they like.
