^ I'm unaware of the buyout rules. It can only be done in the offseason?

I do agree that Noel will be fired before Kane gets traded. My previous comment was just to comment on the fact that anything is possible.

I think at this point, you can call Kesler a 5 mil 2 way center. He's not a 40 goal scorer. At this point in time, he's a 25-30 goal scorer (if even?) capable of getting to 40. In my opinion he would be better suited as a shut down center as he was before, lining up against top lines. I wouldn't bat an eyelash at giving Kesler 5m for keeping him a shut down player first and foremost, given he's an all-situations player.

Also at this point in time, you could argue that Kane is a better scorer than Kesler. Given that the most pressing need for the Canucks is goal scoring, I don't think Kane making more than Kesler (it's 250k, not like he's making millions more) is an issue for the club.

As for the room, I'm sure they don't care. The Sedins sure wouldn't. Why should anyone else. If Kesler gets butthurt at that kind of scenerio then it's good that he got his A removed.

So Kesler with 2 years left and begins to produce again.. whats the pecking order in salaries at

I'm a Kesler fan, but im also a believer that this guy is outta here if he isn't makin 6.5+ after this deal ends

LOL anything over 6 is consider 1st line material... 5.2-5.7 for him only cause hes not better than Mike Richards or Jeff Carter.

Giving Burrows 4.5 was already retarded. Real value 3.5!

Well just looking at other defensive forwards around the league he's not worth 6.5+ although some bottom feeding team will pay that price not.

Toews - 6.3 *
Datsyuk - 6.7 *
Bergeron - 6.5 *
Kopitar - 6.8 *
Zetterberg - 6
Couture / Pavelski - 6

Since the cap is increasing he could possibly get 6.3 maximum because he cant even rackup points like similar players above. They all play depth role down the middle.

Only 1mil over-payment. I think he deserves that type of money, after playing well above his 2mil salary from his last contract.

Too bad he's in a bit of a funk right now. Whole team is... but he's probably the most clutch player we have on the team.

Looks like Olympic roster deadline moved forward to Jan 7.

In other news, Stammer recovers in time to lead the tournament in goals including the good medal game winner.

Trouba is going to be a stud. He's a blue-chip prospect in my opinion.

It would be nuts if the Canucks got Kane. Always been a big fan of his, but like others, coach goes before Kane does. That said, Noel is well-respected around the league and it would be unfortunate if he got the pull.

Your thoughts about coach Roy so far? He's an emotional guy, that's for sure. His behaviour on the bench during some games is pretty unprofessional.

-pushing the partition during a heated argument with Ducks coach Boudreau is unacceptable behaviour for any NHL coach.

Roy needs to understand that although he was a Stanley cup winning goalie, he's gotta earn his respect among his coaching brethren and the refs as a rookie coach.

Then he gets into a war of words with Blues' coach Hitchcock during a game with St. Louis on Wednesday.

-love Hitchcock's response to Roy. It's gold!

Avs' Roy, Blues' Hitchcock exchange post-game barbs

Seems to me that there's different rules for everybody in this league," Roy said. "I guess the old guys are allowed to do whatever they want and I guess us, because we are younger, we are not allowed to say anything. I am a little (mad) about that."

When informed of Roy's comments, Hitchcock did not mince words of his own.

"Oh, give me a break," Hitchcock said. "Tell Patrick to shut the ---- up."

Exactly. If you want Kane, be prepared to have the following, Prospect (Guance Jensen Hunter) + Roster player + pick.

Look at what Washington paid for Erat...lol

Unless Gillis tries to sign Marco Sturm from Germany and pick up Samuelson from detroit, maybe we can get Kane.....
