    Coyotes should raise the players actual contracts to the rafters

    Why patch up Hossa when you can get Patches?

    They are but there is a loophole that you have to be under the cap on day one of the season before you LTIR anyone. It's problematic if you spend right up to the cap, or closer to the cap than the value of the contract you bury, which Chicago does.

    Got to wonder if they go for Faulk as well as Skinner out of Carolina. Also wonder if Hossa ever plays for Arizona.

    I am only painfully aware of this because it's what caused Jarmo to offer up Karlsson to Vegas as incentive to take Clarkson's deal on. That contract could have really hurt us when Bob, Werenski and Panarin come due for deals.

    I am sure that if Hossa doesn't pass the teams physical, they can cancell the trade?

    Devils Twitter was convinced he would resign once his contract was up.

    Love Henrique but the Devils don't make the playoffs last year without Vatanen.

    Um, Hossa is done, he won't be undergoing any physical and the trade is consummated.

    Why change the level of padding? Mess with the size if you want, so the pansy no-talent assclown mommy hugging shooters can feel all powerful and handsome, but why reduce the amount of protection? Those scrawny, twig armed wieners now have carbon sticks which whip the puck with incredible force for how weak and impotent their girly arms are. But they can't beat the clearly superior athletes and human specimens that are playing in goal, so those whipped pucks are hitting guys with less padding than before and they are getting hurt.

    Maybe that's the plan, hurt all the regular goalies so these multi-million dollar crybabies can have a better chance of scoring at the pace of stone cold legends like Jonathan Cheechoo and Wayne Babych.

    Got news for you. There was an accountant who strapped on the pads and you cowardly twats couldn't even score on HIM.

    Get better at your game, Nancy. Stop handcuffing us.

    I would, but I wouldn't want to hurt the feelings of those namby pamby jackwagons who only play for 45 seconds at a time. :thumb:

    Now lets do something about the space age materials in players equipment (shoulder and elbow pads), directly related to higher concussion rates.
