I don't think there's should be any linkage between contract status and choosing to retire. A player can retire when he's a UFA, 2 years left on contract, 10 years left on contract, it's his personal choice (whether due to family, or he's made enough money to live a good life, whatever) and he leaves money on the table if he so chooses. If anything, I think GM's would welcome players with the super term contracts to retire before their term is complete to get rid of the cap hit on their roster, at least with the old CBA. That's why the NHL implemented the 'Luongo rule' (really should be called the Kovalchuk rule IMO) with the new CBA, to penalize teams who signed players with that intent.

I'm curious to see how the new CBA holds up to contracts that were signed under the old CBA, it seems unreasonable to apply new penalties to agreements made under old rules.

Totally agree, which is why I said

Well, they ended up beating Nashville 7-4 in a fast-paced, exciting game, and losing to Detroit 5-2, in arguably the shittiest, most boring game of the season...I could've gone to the Preds game for $60 and instead paid $90 for the Wings game....

#JustSuperSaiyan


Either way, even if it ends up being a sleeper, I'm going to Beverley Hills end of this month and will be sure to catch Lakers/Clippers/Kings/Ducks 1st round playoff games, so I'm not too worried...

I missed out on that good Nashville game.
My work gave me free lower bowl tickets too, but I passed up cause I had my own hockey game to play that night.

And it was against Nashville anyway...

Holy fuck... Wellwood fell awkwardly and sliced his right calf with his left skate. After suffering the cut he skated/coasted off the ice to the bench on his own too!

From what I read he sliced an artery, didn't cut his tendon. If he had cut the achiles, gg to skating off on his own.

Reminds of a few years back when Zednik had an artery in his neck sliced and he was able to get to the bench on his own while gushing still

Skates can do so much damage. I once landed on the tip of a goalie skate after scoring on a breakaway and the toe cut right through my pants into my thigh and needed 20 stitches. Fuck that sucked lol

I feel happy for that guy. I have to admit I wrote him off after the first month. But I'm still screwed in my pool cause of Karlsson (and a few others).

damn skate cuts...
