    I was actually about to discuss this -- didn't see the HockeyBuzz blog but I saw the re-tweet from someone I follow.  According to Alter they asked for $6Mx6 but are willing to settle for $5Mx6 to help the club out of a tight spot.  Awww, how nice of them.  I realize it's not his fault that Nonis can't add, but the Leafs have about $5M for Kadri and Franson, and Kadri just showed that after a short season he had little left in the tank for the playoffs (if he contributed maybe they beat the Bruins, hmm?)  So to give Kadri $5M (which he doesn't deserve on a long term) they have to demote Gardiner, move/waive one of Orr/Frazer and possibly make another move.  And the reason that the Leafs feel they need Frazer *and* Orr is because of player *like* Kadri.

    TOR has to pay Frattin to play for LAK? What a brutal arrangement.

    Bang for the buck, perhaps, who knows. Michalek gets injured in camp and CMac ends up with Spezza and Rayn then goes on to a career season.

    More than I thought he'd get and a solid pick up for Washington. He'll put up 40 and he'll be one of the best off-season acquisitions IMO
    In six NHL seasons he's scored a total of 94 goals. The chances of improving on his best season by 11 is pretty silly (he had 29 in 10/11). My guess is that he plays well and scores 20+ goals and 50ish points, since he's demonstrated that he's basically a 25/25/50 player.
    Don't think he meant 40 goals, just 40 points.
    If he's one of the best off-season acquisitions with 40 points, then this off-season was a bust.
    I did mean UFA signing. MacArthur is up there as well, obviously. Grabo has the ability to be a dynamic player, especially if he's on the PP with Ovi, etc

    Heh-heh, where do you place one Daniel Alfredsson, then?

    Kadri asking for 5 x 6 is the definition of a Cussing joke. How about no? Prove you can do it for more than a half season first. Bridge contract, take it or sit out punk.

    wprager wrote:Anyone listen to the Luongo interview on TSN yet (they are airing it in parts, not all together).  Apparently when the trade fell through he cried in front of Gillis.  Then he went to the PA contemplating walking away from the $40M he has left on that contract.  

    So why doesn't he just renegotiate the contract?  Lots of cases where contracts were negotiated upward, to the players' benefit; why not renegotiate it lower, again, to the player's benefit?
    This Luongo story is getting old fast. He cried? Shut up and play goal. Damn...

    Henrique contract -- $4M per year for 6 years. Nazem Kadri wanted $6M x 6 and is willing to settle for $5M x 6.

    Henrique NHL Totals:
    117 games, 27/40/67, 23 PIM
    Playoffs: 24 games, 5/8/12

    Nazem Kadri NHL Totals:
    99 games, 26/37/63, 39 PIM
    Playoffs: 7 games, 1/3/4

    Kadri's PPG is better but let's not forget this is the New Jersey Devils. He'd have more points on a different team.

    I think you and I saw it at about the same time. Don't think it's been mentioned yet. I'm trolling @43_Kadri over his expectations. I wonder if he'll bite.

    A delicious joke. I hope he holds out and causes a season long distraction. Eat it, Laffs.

    It will be like the Subban situation, he will sit out, realize he isn't getting paid or playing, and sign a 1 year or 2 year deal and see how things go after that. Clock work.
