Yeah Liles is definitely better than Komi. But who can take Liles salary? Only like NJ and Calgary. Both probably don't have interest in a puck moving defenseman making 4 mil with concussion problems.

Default Seattle Ninjas NHL club

Ohhhh. Now i get it. This is why they came up with that unbalanced conference alignment. And that's where he wants to get more cash from for the Coyotes drain.

"Don't despair yet, Seattle hockey fans, the NHL talk won't go away.

After the city appeared to be the front-runner to land the Phoenix Coyotes should a deal not have been struck between the prospective owners and the City of Glendale, Seattle was left in the lurch just when the hockey hopes were rising. But that expansion talk just won't go away, now it's coming from KJR Radio in Seattle host Mitch Levy on Tuesday night.

Levy went on to say that a franchise would cost $275 million to acquire and if that became a reality, it would begin operations in 2014-15. Of course it would all be based on an ownership group coming forward and the plans for a new arena continuing down the path of becoming reality. Key Arena likely would serve as the home of a team until an arena came to be.

Report: Gary Bettman pushing for expansion to Seattle by 2014-15 - CBSSports.com





O.K. So I made the Ninjas part up.

Kadri and his dad had it right to begin with. He's holding out for an offer sheet from the Habs.

Subban and his dad were both Hab fans so he ended up with the right team. as for Kadri, he may be headed for a holdout.

And what a coincidence that Subban and Stamkos were both on the right path

i don't know the numbers involved, but how many here think Nonis is really messing up this team especially regarding Kadri and Franson?

I do.

i think this offseason has been disasterous.

I always thought Burkie shouldn't have been let go. However if Nonis can resign Kadri and Franson then I have no issue.

I dont understand why we used a compliance buyout on Komi and not on Liles if trading Liles is such a problem.

If we used a compliance buyout on Liles, and a regular buyout on Komi, Komi would only be on the cap for 2 years. Now if we use regular buyout Liles he's on the cap for like 6 years or something. Nonis better have something up his sleeve.

btw I cant wait for hockey season to start, it's been too long

Now that BB is in Calgary, look for Phaneuf to be moved back there...i like Dion, but with a cap hit of 6.5 Million it just might be time to move him

Rumor has it that Kadri wants 5+ a year ?...if this is true then he (and his agent) are out of their fucking minds
I'd let the little shit sit and stew until i could find a decent trade...bridge contract similar to Subban's or nothing

And ya, let's get the season started

Kadri is smokin some awesome crack, because yes hes asking for 5+ on a long term deal when hes had 1 good season, a half season at that. The guys ego is through the roof. Not to mention he won't shutup about it in the media tryin to get people to feel bad or something. The absolute most I'd give him is 4.

As for Nonis, he's not impressing me at all, but we'll see what happens, but he has to sign Franson...

the 5+ rumours are fake, it was pretty obvious that it was a negotiating tactic. He's looking for 2 years 7 mill, leafs are offering 2/5.7 they'll probably meet in the middle at 3.1 a year

I highly doubt we offered him 5.7... He's not worth it or even near worth it

Are you suggesting he's not worth 5.7 over two years?

Kadri is easily one of the most talented players on the team. One could argue he is their best player or it's only a matter of time before he is. He's easily the best home grown player we've seen on this team in forever.

Honestly speaking this team has dicked him around a fair bit already in his career...

Like i said before nonis looks like he's on the path to nowhere with this team. God help us if we end up getting rid of on the brightest lights this sad team has seen in ages.

TYler Fucking Bozak is under contract for over $4 million a season for fucks sake and you guys are slighting Kadri in this when close-to-scrub Bozak is getting PAID.
that clarkson guy is going to make over $5 000 000.

Honestly the alarm bells should be totally going off.

I think he read it as 5.7 a year, but I agree behind kessel he's the most talented at the moment offensively or will be (lupul is right there as well). I think Kadri is worth the 3.5 he's asking for but at the same time, there's limited money for him and franson so I understand what they're doing. Mason Raymond will be attending camp too, who knows if he'll get signed too

What the hell has Kadri done to deserve any serious money? He fucked around for a few years getting sent down over and over because of his ego and constant bad play, he has a good shortened season and now hes worth something? Get outta here man, hes not worth more than Duchene, and he makes 3.75. If he wants more he can keep holding out and go somewhere else.

Kadri will get a bridge deal like Subban. Why is Kadri getting so much heat? Has he publicly stated he wants 5 mil?

the guy was the best player last season and probably the main reason behind the team's turnaround. this team has seen so few star players in recent memory that it boggles the mind how some people are happy to ship one out. You mention some other player who makes whatever money, but so did i. Nonis has signed marginal talent to big money, but now he's having issues signing a big talent guy? get that outa here man. it's so sad it's funny.

the only players on the leafs now who bring more or as much to the table as Kadri is Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. that's it. You're talking like he's disposable. He isn't by a long shot.

Yea I agree with Fancy. When was the last time we drafted an offensive talent like Kadri. Who was the last guy that had hands like Kadri? Wellwood? Not to mention he sees the ice as good as anyone on the team.

He's our best centre on the team.
