    Apparently there was a little girl in the crowd who was terrified.

    That said, the people the girl was with (presumably her parents) weren't exactly being great role models, either.

    Weird how the whole thing played out...Lou meeting with Tavares before he was officially hired by the Isles...eventually getting in and then still taking a bit of time before cleaning house....

    So are we finally going to see a clean shaven Johnny T? No more Miami Vice 2-day stubble?

    Dreger says it's a verbal agreement, which should not be legal IMO.

    But it happens and it means something to most GMs, players and agents. I absolutely love how Chayka is reported to be handling offers from other GMs for OEL with hes off the market and/or hes not available.

    Take notes Dorion. I cant believe the Arizona franchise is teaching us something. Probably because we seem to be getting funds loaned to us from the NHL now too if reports are correct.

    I hate this ownership and I'm starting to dislike Dorion to be honest. Hands tied or not, this off-season is his last chance. Sadly, the fate of our best player is in his hands (or not)

    I don't think things are in Dorion's hands. I think they're in Eugene's hands.

    OMG, people, stop this. He is *under contract* with the organization for another freaking year. You are not allowed to speak to players under contract with another team but you damn well better be allowed to talk to a player under contract with you.

    You just cannot sign an extension to an existing contract until July 1. But you can talk all you want.

    Which is why Dorion looks like an idiot when he says he cant talk with Erik until the 1st. More lies from management (because I just dont buy hes unaware of his ability to negotiate just without signing.)

    Eh, whatever. Why bother even reporting a verbal agreement I guess is more my question, but either way...

    To me its just prolonging having to deal with fans. Its easier to tell fans they cant talk then to say the kalrsson camp doesnt care to engage talks and to have to answer as to why.

    This franchise is a flaming dumpster rolling down a hill towards a dump.

    The best thing that could now happen is a sale followed by a complete change in the front office.

    The best thing Ottawa could do is to offer and 'leak' that they offered him 12 million a year. Then they could say, hey, we tried! What else could we have done? Then they're not the villains they're about to become.

    While the Ottawa Tire Fire grows, LA and Tampa are making trades that they think will improve their teams.
