i dont see Gudbranson being moved, unless we offer a real nice package. him and Ellerby are the only young d-men they've got on the team. the other 4 dmen are all 33+. gudbranson is going to be their go-to guy in the future.

i say Luongo + Raymond + 3rd round pick FOR Bjugstad + rights to Versteeg + Clemmensen (I dont want him, but Theodore has NTC)

-----------------

on 2nd thought... they have so much capspace, maybe they can keep clemmensen and we'll find another goalie elsewhere, lol

^ They got Dmitri Kulikov. Tallon won't trade the youth unless they under-perform.

Holy cow the NHL's initial proposal to the NHLPA is a low ball offer. I guess that's what negotiations are all about and they eventually reach a happy medium. With that first offer though, I'm thinking at the very least this hockey season is shortened.

Shortened season bodes well for the Canucks in my opinion. All speculation at this point, but what else are we going to do in this thread.

didnt we pay Mats Sundin a rediculous amount of money for half a season? so realisticaly paying Shane Doan that amount of money 7-7.5 mill for him to play a couple full season would be a better bet no?

That 7.5 will stay on the cap for the duration of the contract.

Modano to Wild? He'd consider
Mike Modano announced his retirement last summer, but the former Minnesota North Star told radio host Josh Rimer that he'd listen if the Minnesota Wild asked him to return to the NHL.

“If the Wild contacted me I’d listen to what they would have to say, certainly would be a fitting ending to a career obviously going back to Minnesota and what that town and what the fans meant to me,” Modano said. ”To play with those guys (Zach Parise/Ryan Suter) and play in front of the fans again back where it started would be pretty unique.”


Nobody is exactly sure how serious Modano was about the claim. The former first-overall pick finished his career with 1,374 points in 1,499 games between the North Stars, Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings.

NHL Rumor Rundown: Luongo to Panthers?


Kind of an interesting comment from Modano - really scraping for some news for you guys haha.

PS: Is anyone playing in the ASHL at the Richmond Oval? Just wondering if I'm playing against any RSers.

Bettman and the owners have met their match with Donald Fehr. Fehr is getting the player reps quickly on board for CBA discussions because he knows that this is gonna be a long, perhaps tense, business negotiation.

-smart move by the NHLPA to hire Fehr.

i understand the art of negotiating, but man, starting with a low ball like that is mind boggling. don't businesses ever just start realistically in the middle?

seems like the owners are looking to start at one extreme with the assumption that the nhlpa will approach it from the other side of the extreme. hopefully it doesn't take too long to reach a reasonable compromise.

that's if the other will already be on board with it but realistically, they will always think its still a lowball offer

At 47, Dominik Hasek will be making a comeback in the National Hockey League, according to his agent.

He just wants to hold the record for the oldest goalie. No team would want him @ 47.

Tomorrow is July 16. Isn't that when Doan's agent said his client would make a decision?

No, that date was thrown out.

Quote:
If unrestricted free agent Shane Doan decides to leave the Phoenix Coyotes, he will find more than half of the NHL's teams lined up to make recruiting pitches.
Terry Bross of Lagardere Unlimited, the group representing Doan, said Wednesday that 16 NHL teams have made inquiries about Doan's intentions and "four or five" have already submitted formal offers. Bross also has been negotiating with the Coyotes to keep Doan in Phoenix.

"We are getting to the point where it is going to be decision-making time," Bross said.
Bross said Doan has been traveling by car in western Canada and has been difficult to reach. But the agent planned to talk to him either late Wednesday or early Thursday to discuss his options.

Doan, who has been with the Winnipeg/Phoenix franchise his entire career, has indicated he would prefer to stay with the Coyotes, provided he can be convinced that Greg Jamison's proposal to buy the team and keep it in Glendale, Ariz., is going to happen.
One complication is some Glendale residents are trying to obtain enough signatures on petitions to hold a referendum on the city's 20-year, $324 million arena management deal with Jamison.

The deadline for the signatures was supposed to be last Monday, but organizers of the petition drive believe it should be next Monday because that would be a month after they received the paperwork.

There have been reports of Doan possibly delaying his decision until Monday, but Bross indicated he doesn't believe Doan needs to wait.

"There is no relevance to the July 16th date for us," he said. "That's off the table."

Doan, 35, is a power forward with leadership ability, and most of the league's high-profile teams are interested in signing him, including the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings. The Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins and Vancouver Canucks also are believed to be in the mix.
Agent: 16 teams have inquired about Shane Doan

Another slow day of nothingness, but Green declined the Caps qualifying offer.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...pitals-insider

Quote:
Mike Green declines Washington Capitals’ qualifying offer

By Katie Carrera


Defenseman Mike Green declined the Capitals’ qualifying offer of a one-year contract worth $5 million. He had until 5 p.m. Sunday to accept the deal, as was the case with all restricted free agents considering qualifying offers.
Both sides can continue to negotiate a new contract despite the deadline, and that’s expected to happen in this case.
On Saturday, General Manager George McPhee described the expiration date on qualifying offers as an “artificial deadline.” While McPhee didn’t share any insight into the negotiations, he expressed optimism when questioned about re-signing Green and fellow restricted free-agent defenseman John Carlson.
“When you’re sort of negotiating in good faith and trying to get it done — I don’t think anybody’s trying to squeeze anybody on the other side — and so in some ways it’s an artificial deadline,” McPhee said when asked Saturday how the deadline alters negotiations. “I think we’ve had healthy discussions with both players, and there are deals to be made there. So I don’t expect tomorrow to be a big day with respect to signing these players. I think that’s something we’ll get done sooner than later and they’ll be deals that we can live with and they can live with.”

At this time it’s unclear whether Carlson accepted his qualifying offer of one-year, $826,875 but it’s believed he will seek a longer-term contract.
