    How do agents drive up the prices? By taking multiple offers? They can't force anyone to pay anything. All they can do is be like "Hey, someone else offered my client more money, so he's going to go p more »

    As much as I wanted the Americans to win, I can definitely see the Canadian side of it. I mean, I hate it when the goalie holds the ball forever, and I wish it WERE called more often, but if it happen more »

    The notion that player salaries drive ticket prices is what the owners would like you to believe. Owners charge as much as they possibly can for their seats and still fill the place. And when they rea more »

    I don't know if Weber's signing an offer sheet says "I want to play specifically for Philly" quite so much as it says "I want $110M." more »

    Nash is a great player, but as a few people have suggested, the price the Rangers paid (while not enough from the CBJ perspective) and the injury to Gaborik means they will have some difficulty with b more »

    The truth is the Rangers used to be a bad team with the best goalie in the world. Now they're a mediocre team with the best goalie in the world. That's made the difference for them. But they're still more »

    Nash. Thomas and Krejci + any picks or prospects not named "Hamilton" would be just fine. Maybe even Lucic if needed. Time to give Seguin Krejci's job, and bump Tuukka and Khodobin a notch up the dept more »

    Peverley has been the best Bruin in the series. That third goal was the result of Chara icing the puck by shooting it straight up the boards with no one there, while he had ALL 3 forwards about 15' fr more »

    Rask is a UFA this year. Thomas' NMC expires this year. Khodobin's deal becomes one-way this year. If you were Rask, why would you re-sign with the B's if you were going to remain a backup? Why would more »

    They don't lose any money up front, either. It's not even a gamble for them. They pay an "insurance" company to essentially take the hit for them. If they lose, Jordan's gets the buisness, and the ins more »
