Sorry? Hammer is just as guilty not waiving his NTC for any eastern teams and telling everyone who would listen that he intends to pull a Vermette and he's a 3-4 month rental at most. Fuck him, he can eat from the same bag of dicks that Benning should be eating from.

Nothing happened.

Yzerman came out and said he's welcome to come back and join the Lightning

Not sure how you can hate on a player like Hamhuis, the guy's a class act, it's totally in his right not to waive his NTC, the fact he even gave us a few teams he was willing to go to was a bonus.... and anyone who knows anything about Hammer knows he wants to re-sign with Van the first chance he gets, his comments didn't make a difference

JB, Mike Gillis, and possibly aquaman are the ones who screwed us on this

Fuck him still, it's not asking that much that he can't spend 3 months a few hours away from his stupid family to bring the team/city he supposedly loves so much a chance to profit? What a pussy. He's on the damn road half the time anyway, he's being a fucking princess.

Stamkos would have to be high on weed to play for this team. Why would he play with the Canucks when he can sign with another team that has a legitimate chance of winning a Stanley Cup?

If teams better than Vancouver clear salary cap room to try to sign Stamkos, there's no way he would come here.

Willie D. would just put Dorsett on a Stamkos line anyway.

Exactly this. He took a hometown discount for this NTC and to play in his hometown. No problems with him exercising what he rightfully "paid" for.

If Hamhuis had a shortlist of teams, then Benning probably moved too slow or was too greedy.

Reporter asked GMJB if Vrbata got any offers and GMJB hesitates and stumbles on his words and then says that Vrbata gave him a list of teams and none of those teams gave any offers.

Lol why u hef 2 b mad

You could think like that, but on the flip side as is so often the case that's how 'this business' works. He's a professional, has provided his services in exchange for his salary, worked within terms of his contract (and more really), he doesn't owe anybody any favours.

Would you for example take a hypothetical 20% pay cut from your job to do them a favour and help them balance their budget? Why not, don't be a princess

Only the Canucks could possibly get nothing for a disgruntled but legit 25-30 goal scorer.

Your hypothetical situation couldn't possibly be less comparable. He took a hometown discount not because he's good guy Dan, he took it cuz he wants to live here and that's all the team could afford. He traded 20% of his salary to live here, not because he was trying to save the organization money. Give your head a shake.

And yes, if I was asked to leave town for 3 months to help the company out and possibly play for a winning Stanley Cup team I'd do it in a fucking heartbeat. Or, to make your hypothetical situation actually make sense -- if my company asked me to go to New York for 3 months and I had the chance to work at a place that puts a huge sales deal together with me on their sales team then fuck yes I would go even if I had kids.

"Per Dreger: Benning upped price, Dallas matched. Benning went for more at deadline, was rejected. Wow."

Add this tweet from Murph:


So the trade was:

Dallas gets:
D Hamhuis

Canucks get:
D Jyrki Jokipakka
F Brett Pollock
Conditional 2016 2nd Round Pick (turns into 1st rounder if Dallas makes conference finals and Hamhuis appears in at least 50% of the team's games through the first two rounds)

Benning got greedy and decided to ask for more once Dallas agreed and Dallas said fuck you, took the offer to Calgary and they took it and ran with it.
