Nemeth re-signed for 1 year, $2.5 mil. Led the Avs in blocks, put up 15 points, and had the highest plus/minus for an Av since Foote in 2003.

And he wasn't really all that rewarded for it.

He was heading to arbitration. Instead of having the arbitrator award $2.5 million, the Avs just gave it to him. It's a one season deal. He'll be allowed to walk as a UFA next summer.

His two points in the playoffs last year were key to their victory.

One of them was scoring the first goal in a 2-1 overtime win in Game 6 at Pittsburgh that ended that second-round series.

Saw this post from Austin Smith, a former Stars draft pick. Everyone always focuses on the players who make it to the NHL but there are so many guys who are drafted and never make it to the league, but continue to play because it is what they know and love. At some point, everyone hangs the skates up. Unfortunately, it isn't always on the player's terms. After five years bouncing between the AHL and ECHL, Smith started playing in Finland, then Germany, then Austria. It looks like his team won their championship this past season, but in his words:

Unfortunately it came at a cost. I played the last part of the regular season and playoffs with a pretty severe concussion. I tried to convince myself I was healthy enough to play and that their wouldn’t be consequences. The team doctors and owner didn’t empathize with my symptoms and what I was going through. They forced pills on me and told me it would be ok. I even missed two games in the playoffs, because symptoms were so severe. The Gm, Dieter Knoll of @hcbfoxes, was furious and did not understand why I could not play. He actually refused to pay me the extra bonuses the team earned in the playoffs, because he felt that a concussion is not a reason to miss a game. The @erstebankeishockeyliga has been trying to convince the Gm to do what is right and pay me what I earned. Regardless of the money, the symptoms are still lingering, and treatment is very expensive. The Gm has not offered any help financially for the medical bills, and has dodged every phone call and email of mine.


Sports can be a really shitty business.

Still a better GM than Nill.

It's to be expected when your GM is Dieter Von Cunth.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.
