Don't most people get vaccinated against the mumps? I'm confused.

I guess Canadians don't. So much for universal health care.

My favourite play of the year.

Last year's was Kari taking a Shea Weber slapper to the dick and balls.

You could make a 60-win team with the guys fans want fired after the first round.

Is Yakupov a free agent or an RFA?

We should totally get him. All he needs is a guy like Hitch to get him going.

Why does it seem like Russians are either really awesome or really horrible?

Because Canadians have a strong bias against Russians, and most every coach and GM is Canadian. If a Russian isn't amazing, these bigoted Canadians run them out of the league.

Yeah, plus Canadians can always rely on Grit and Sandpaper, two qualities absent from any Russkie ever.

An unusual name started circulating in trade circles the last few days: Minnesota’s Nino Niederreiter. The 24-year-old winger had a career-high 25 goals in 2016–17, and, after making a few calls, it sounds like teams are looking at the Wild’s expansion/cap situation, wondering if he could be available. Two years away from unrestricted free agency, Niederreiter is arbitration eligible and will get a nice raise from the $2.7 million he just earned.

The Wild also need to re-sign Mikael Granlund. As an exec from another team put it, “It may not be their first choice, but if you make it worth their while, it’s possible.” All GM Chuck Fletcher would say is, “We are actively listening... on everything.”

3. It probably wouldn’t surprise Minnesota fans to hear Matt Dumba’s name, too. The Wild have an expansion logjam on the blueline.

Anisimov has been rumored to be on the block given his reasonable contract and good production the last few years. And the Hawks may believe they have potential second-line centers in Nick Schmaltz and Tanner Kero to play between Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin.

Defensemen Seabrook and Duncan Keith, forwards Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa and Artem Anisimov all have total no-movement clauses. To move any of these players, the Hawks would have to get them to agree to waive their rights.


Of course they'd love to move Seabrook and his awful contract, he is a below average skater and his play is rapidly declining.

I could see Nill blowing all the goodwill from this offseason by trading the #3 for Seabrook.

As for the other deal, the rumors are it's likely Seabrook, but his contract has negative value, even worse then Niemi or Lehtonen. He has 6/7 more years at like 7 million a year, with rapid declining skills, especially his skating.

I like seabrook but his contract is ridiculous. He is the kind of upstanding, hard nosed, character that our team could use, but if he can't skate, forgetaboutit.
