That's probably about right. The term is long though.

Lol, Ev, you've become a weirdo lately. If it's an "awful" deal, he wouldn't have signed it. He chose a good team, for a long term. Good deal for Boychuk.

May be he meant it was an awful deal to give for Boychuk.

Considering Methot signed for less term and $1.1M less. I'd say that's a clear savings of $1.5M per season. Deals like that absolutely have to be taken into consideration when you complain how little the Senators are spending.

So whatever the cap hit is next year, add $1.5M because that's how much more the Rangers/Islanders would have paid for Staal/Boychuk on a shorter deal. And then look at Karlsson's $6.5M and add another $2.5M because that's how much more the Habs spent on Subban. And so on down the roster. Hell, we are probably over the cap by quite a bit.

Mind you, by the same token you should subtract the cap hits of Phillips and Greening (paid *not* to play) at least a portion of Michalek's.

He'll be old in the middle of that contract by NHL standards, so I can see both sides.

for the life of me i can't understand why jumbo would want to stay in SJS. they clearly want to move past him and with his NTC i'm sure he could dictate where he wants to go.

He loves to surf and doesn't care all that much about winning a Cup.

Yeah, pretty much this. He's living the good life on California.

Actually if you read what Wilson said you would (a) agree that he should have kept his mouth shut but (b) it was not at all negative against Jumbo. But when you speak so disrespectfully about your GM one of two things must happen -- he's either moved, or Wilson is. If they've truly had enough of this they'll suspend him indefinitely. The NHLPA may not like it but I think that's actually the correct course of action.

Now the trouble maker in my would say "Hey, Jumbo, why don't you score 4 and then *you* can shut his mouth".

That seems like a poor example of asset management.

I particularly enjoyed the, "He needs to stop lying," remark.
Your move, Doug. Munch

It's clear they're trying to make it so uncomfortable that jumbo Joe asks for a trade. I doubt it works.

Yep. It's pretty funny actually how they're trying to force him out.

Thornton has always been one of the biggest a$$holes in the NHL... this isn't shocking.
