    I thought there was some sort of rule where the salary from one year to the next couldn't be less than half the salary from the previous year?

    The NHL has yet to approve those Wild deals... so it will remain to be seen... this could be the start of CBA negotiation madness... that breakdown certainly looks very very fishy...

    Then I think they will have to be re-negotiated, because I thought that's what held up the Kovalchuk and/or Luongo deals.

    He's American, he can sign anywhere he wants. But I thought he'd go to NY, play with Dubinsky.

    Well without the Caps it would just be the Wings, Leafs, Rangers, Bruins etc. doing all the spending.

    The rest of the teams would just be icing bare minimum rosters and pocketing the profits.

    Carle is a questionable as a top 4 D man. Seriously, he's a 5, 6 guy on a good team. Well, one less team the Sens have to worry about next year. Tampa just got worse.

    Can't get much worse than last year.

    I think he's a number 4 D-man, but that's a lot of loot for that kind of guy. More power to you, good luck...

    But when Weber's ready for that long term contract, could he conceivably ask for 10 million per year? He's twice as good as Carle, why not?

    It was all started with Wideman, then shifted to an overpayment for Suter and all the while Carle is sitting there laughing. There's pretty much no one else....his payday was inevitable.

    Carle can be a #2 defenceman. I think TB is a good fit for him. Yeah, his contract is an overpayment, but that's free agency for you.
