NHL Offseason 2013

Well the playoffs are over and the long, bleak months of no hockey are ahead of us so I thought I would start a thread for the offseason.

To start off it looks like Alfredsson will be returning to Ottawa for another season.

Tampa will be using a compliance buyout on the remainder of Vincent Lecavelier's contract. Link

Compared to how long the last offseason was, I'll gladly take the long bleak months if it means we're getting Hockey in October.

Cory Schneider has been traded to the New Jersey Devils for the 9th overall pick in this year's NHL Draft.

I'm not actually hugely surprised by this. Lu is still an elite goalie. I'm kinda disappointed Canucks only got a 9th pick for Schneider though.

Re: NHL Offseason 2013

After that season long boondoggle, I thought most Canuck fans would be happy it's over. Gillis has really screwed that team up and it'll be interesting to see how long it goes on for before the owner pulls the plug.

The Leafs made a good pickup in Bolland, someone who can be that bit of sandpaper that they needed this playoffs.

What were the Panthers thinking not taking Jones? On a team where you have absolutely nothing, Jones can be that cornerstone to build from. I don't think you'll ever see that from Barkov.

Didn't Luongo sell his condo in Vancouver? I was under the impression he had mentally checked out from the team likely under the assumption he'd be playing elsewhere next season. If the guy's head isn't there because he thinks he's been mistreated by management, the Canucks are going to have a mighty long season (and not in the good playoffs way) AND they got rid of Schneider who could become their long-term solution.

Re: NHL Offseason 2013

^ Yeah I am a little worried about that. However I read online Aquilini spoke to Luongo before they traded Schneider. That plus how professionally Lu handled the whole situation, I'm thinking things could work out.

Re: NHL Offseason 2013

Wow, Penguins bet the farm that they'll win this year by signing Letang to that giant deal. In 2014-15, seven guys on their roster will account for approximately 69% of the salary cap. Even if they do win the Cup this season, I think they might have boned themselves in the long-term, with no room to sign the role-players that every winning team needs.

Exactly. Crosby can't carry this team, especially when he is being double teamed. Their goaltending is in disarray and again, this team will have two bottom lines of nobodies.

Make that nine Penguins players taking up roughly $49m of a roughly $69m salary cap (71%) in 2014...

http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2...-million-deal/

I'm really failing to see the logic of going into salary cap hell after a season in which you may or may not win it all because your team still has significant holes.

Pretty amazing to see the contracts being handed out today after we just witnessed all of those buyouts. Unbelievable.

I was at the cottage and just found out about this. I'm really going to miss Alfie but if anyone has earned the right to chase the cup it's him.
