Leaf fans should start making plans for a new GM now. Time's up and more athletes want to play for even the Raptors than the Leafs right now.

Well to be fair, it's only July 4th...let's see what BB does over the next few weeks..situations and scenarios are just starting to develop now that the top 2 names are gone

Still think Luongo is a possibility...but that won't happen for awhile yet (if at all )

I don't know if the Leafs have any cap space, or if they have had any over the last few years. But have they signed anyone of substance? And do any of them want to play here?

And now, they will likely have to re-build their team anyway because they have a different style of coach. At this point, an 8th place treadmill team would be great for them. But that might be too much to ask.

At least Burke has learned one lesson. Stop with the grandiose talk of all you are going to do like all the other GMs are morons.

Poor Preds... just got picked apart...

Not to mention all these stupid 14 year deals are gonna destroy the league. It's either you sign a guy for more years left than he'll even play, or they'll just go to whoever does, it's crap.

it's the one loophole that needs to be addressed..should be a 5 year maximum on contracts
if another walkout is needed to fix this problem, then so be it

there should be no max and no minimum contracts. no salary cap and floor as well. for such a capitalist economy the sports leagues in the US are run different. baseball and basketball have it right sort of. just tax if they spend over a certain limit.

Like it matters. These teams are locking all these guys down because there is another, yes thats right ANOTHER big lockout coming. They aren't televising it much though.

Owners want the players to take a cut, rights after they gloated about revenue going up 1.2 billion last year, which is a massive boost.

Fucking Bettman and his Owners cronies, fucking MLSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly might have to stop cheering for toronto.

Nash traded to NYR for spare parts

Quote:
The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded Rick Nash to the New York Rangers for centres Artem Anisimov and Brandon Dubinsky, defenceman Tim Erixon and a first-round pick, TSN reports.

The deal is pending a trade call, the network says.

Nash had 30 goals and 29 assists for the Blue Jackets last season.

Selected first overall by Columbus at the 2002 NHL entry draft, Nash has spent his entire career with the Blue Jackets and was captain of the team.

Nash is going into the third year of an eight-year contract he signed with the Jackets in 2010 worth $7.8 million annually.

The power forward has been looking for a way out of the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets, and reportedly would only approve a trade to one of six teams: Boston, Detroit, New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Jose.
