Bob McKenzie noted it first but one thing I think that Thornton may be bringing up in his appeal is the Scott Walker/Aaron Ward incident from a few years ago. Walker suckers Ward, knocks him out, he m more »

They lost in semi-final four games to one...so he's officially "free" to head over here as soon as a contract etc. can be worked out.

Bob McKenzie and others have the B's as one of three finalists to sign J.T. Brown from UND. I like these moves. If they don't pan out, only costs you some $. If they do pan out gives you valuable dep more »

Just a couple of quick notes on our guys in the OHL.... 1) Camara and Spooner's teams suck. They're like 3-19 combined so far. As a result neither one is doing anything (yet). Spooner's team is ave more »

Forum Post: Trade prediction

Within 24 hours I predict a trade very similar to this will be made.. Kaberle and 3rd rounder Tor got from Phily for Wheeler, 2nd rounder from Bos (min pick) and probably Kampfer or prospect. Kelly fi more »

Forum Post: Kelly to fill Wheeler's spot?
Posted 02/15/2011 11:00:03 EST
Deal might make more sense if Wheeler is about to be shipped to Toronto in a deal for Kaberle tomorrow. That way we have a forward to plug in for him. That's about the only way I see that working. Kel more »

Neil signed a deal this year at 2m per season for Ott. That's a lot of change in the salary cap era for a 4th line forward..Thornton makes about 1/3 of that for example and his #'s this year are bett more »

Posted 02/06/2011 11:46:18 EST
While I agree with many posters thoughts on the appropriate "value" for Kaberle, I think you're missing one HUGE point. He is an UFA at the end of the year and he has a NO TRADE clause. HE's also said more »

One thing teams have to be careful about with Nabokov is that if he signs after he turns 35 then ALL the cap hit has to be honored. There are no "buyouts" etc. allowed for guys who retire, go the KHL, more »
