Seriously though...why burn a year now?

I think people are a bit confused by the CBA stuff here:

1) Chris Kreider is 20 years old, meaning that ELC is NOT eligible to slide;

2) the fact that he can play this year indicates that his ELC begins this year (2011-12) and will end three years from now (2013-14), because, again, his contract is not eligible to slide.

Rangers have nothing to lose here by playing him in the playoffs.

I'm still not fully understanding. Why don't the Rangers wait to sign him and start the ELC ticking next year instead of signing him now and forcing him into playoff action?

That's a question you'd have to ask the Rangers / Krieder.

It's not a totally unfamiliar scenario, tho': when we signed Winchester and Butler, for example, we let them play a game or two late in March in order to burn one of the two years off their contract. Granted, they were both college signings, but the precedent is there.

Preds vs. Wings should finally be an interesting series. Detroit hasn't been dominating of late and the Preds are a much stronger team compared to the last time these two teams met in the playoffs.

They also have one of the best goaltenders in the league, and Detroit may finally be the kind of team that needs one.

Lidstrom, you can take a seat now. The role of the dominating Swedish defenseman has been given to the understudy.

Agreed. I think it'll be a battle, but I think Nashville moves to round 2.

I can't believe SD is using the crude banner I made up. I really meant for you to do what I did but spend more than 5 minutes on it. I even told you how to resize those #YESWECAN images, and you can use MS Paint or even Word to assemble them together.

It's like teaching a man to fish, and giving him a crudely drawn image of what a fishing rod/reel/hook look like, and the guy eats the drawing and says "Yummy!"
