Some of the Canucks practiced at UBC today, and Willie Mitchell was there too!

Meanwhile, I think Kesler got a parking ticket from UBC... It was a Black Benz ML. Anybody else see it on the news?

September 2006, Rick DiPietro signs 15 year 67.5M contract. One of many terrible contracts out there. Owners are at fault for being idiots.

You're only worth as much as someone's willing to pay you.

The solution to the leagues problems is not relocating teams, or revenue sharing, or salary caps. The solution is dissolving clubs in markets that cannot support an NHL franchise. The NHL won't suffer if Phoenix or Columbus dies off, and keeping them around on life support just results in lockouts, because owners don't want to pay to own a losing team, and fellow owners don't want to make charitable donations to bail out their billionaires colleagues.

The DiPietro contract is a special kind of dumb along with the Alexei Yashin deal. It's called "Charles Wang Dumb".

I'd have to say Scott Gomez is in the same league.

2011 - 2 goals - $7M
2010 - 7 goals - $7M
2009 - 12 goals - $7M

That's $21M for 19 goals in the last 3 years.

“It wouldn’t be fair to a lot of people. It wouldn’t be fair to the fans, I’d feel for a lot of people who work in the arenas, the vendors, employees, the (Canucks) staff that have all taken pay cuts. It sucks for a lot of people. Obviously, the owners want to make a little more money, but it’s not just the players they are coming after. They think we make too much and they think we could probably weather the storm, but there are a lot of other people who are suffering that maybe they are not considering.”

Hamilton and Quebec will get 2 relocate teams within the next 4-6 yrs 100%.

This lockout can easily be prevented if a small market team is moved but bettman doesnt to admit his southern expansion team was a mistake in the 90's. ATL moving to Winnipeg last season was a good first step or else they would have been in more deeper shit this year.

This lockout conclusion is saving the phoenix coyotes. Which the 04 lockout was to save Pittsburgh Penguins.

Typical Ovechkin, but he has his reasons

Alex Ovechkin reaffirms that he might stay in Russia if NHL reduces player salaries | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports

Quote:
While Alex Ovechkin signed his contract with Dynamo Moscow of the KHL on Wednesday, he used his other hand to toss a bomb back at the feet of the National Hockey League.
If the owners cut the players' salaries severely in the next Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Washington Capitals star said he would consider remaining in Russia.
"If our contracts get slashed, I will have to think whether to return there or not. I won't rule out staying in the KHL, even past this season," he told RIA Novosti, as translated by Capitals Insider.
He reiterated the threat in a conference call with the Washington Post and the Washington Times today, adding that other NHL players might join him in staying overseas:
"I said it before, before I sign contract, if the league decide to cut our salaries and cut our contracts for what they want, I don't know how many guys will be coming back," Ovechkin said on conference call with The Washington Times and Washington Post on Wednesday.
"We signed contracts before and why they have to cut our salaries and our contracts right now? They sign us. [Now they] want to cut it, I think it's a stupid idea and a stupid decision by the NHL, [commissioner Gary] Bettman and the guys who work there."
A few reactions:
• While I'm sure his comments are hyperbole, let's take them at face for a second. I find it impossible to reconcile the NHLPA's message of "the people that suffer the most are the fans" (S. Crosby, 2012) and "they're the ones that suffer from [a lockout] (J. Reimer, 2012) with Ovechkin pondering if he'd turn his back on those very fans if his $9 million base salary is reduced under a new CBA.
At this point in the lockout, it's completely counterproductive to the NHLPA's messaging.
• Why This Is An Empty Threat, Part One: The KHL shouldn't, in theory, allow it. As Pierre LeBrun noted:
KHL and NHL have a memo of understanding respecting each league's player contracts. So in theory, Ovechkin would not be allowed to stay and play in KHL post an NHL lockout. Then again, it's the KHL. So you never know.
• Why This Is An Empty Threat, Part Two: Just a hunch, but IMG isn't pimping out Ovechkin to sponsors as "KHL MVP" and Nike didn't sign him to model their gear in KHL anonymity. Again, just a hunch.
The NHLPA has masterfully controlled its message during the summer; one wonders how that possibly continues now that players are spreading to across Europe.
