He's right guys. The best player in the world is Dany Heatley because he's a ****in' all star.
Woah. Nathan Horton to Columbus- interesting, great signing for the Jackets.
Glad that Scuds is back with the Pens. Not too broken up about the departure of Cooke. That'll probably be good in the long run.
A 6-horse goalie carousel ride later and the Flyers somehow arrive back at their actual plan with Emery...
Leafs sign Clarkson and re-signed Bozak and Bernier HECK YES,
Now Nonis, all you gotta do is re-sign Kadri, Franson and Gunnarsson
HOLY CRAP bad news for Devil Fans, Ilya Kovalchuk announced his retirement from the NHL.
At 30? That's shocking.
Clarkson and Kovalchuk gone? It's all up to you....Ryane Clowe.
He's going to play in the KHL most likely.
Doesn't he have back issues?
You mean that 15 year contract didn't work out in New Jersey's favor? Shocker.
Kovalchuk really screwed the Devils over by not retiring before the NHL draft. Now the Devils don't have a pick next year (they lost it when they first signed Kovalchuk and rolled it over to next year's draft before they knew Kov was gone) and they missed out on the top free agents. I feel bad for them and I'm a Rangers fan.
Motion to change thread name to Ilya Kovalchuk Sucks
Yeah that was a pretty big dick move on his part. I'm sure they would have thrown more money at Clarkson if they had known he was retiring. If he plays in the KHL the Devils should get compensated for it no?
Well didn't they lose him when his contract expired while he was injured? Hopefully he can help the flyers move forward. It seems like every time they take a step forward, they trip and fall on their rear ends.
Now that I've had some time to digest it, I'm still feeling betrayed, but also slightly relieved by Kovalchuk's retirement. I feel betrayed because the Devils lose their best offensive player and a player I had grown to really like, after forfeiting draft picks and money to get him that big contract. But I feel relieved now that the contract is basically gone. The Devils will pay $250,000 per year in cap recapture penalties through 2024-25, but that's a lot less than it would have been had he retired a few years down the road. Plus they don't have to pay the rest of his contract.
It's a good thing I didn't buy the Kovalchuk jersey I was planning on buying for next season...
This isn't the first Asylum movie that the Sharks have had to endure. Giant Shark vs. Mega Octopus came out just as the Sharks and Red Wings were facing off in the playoffs a few years back.
Awesome that Fred Shero is finally in the Hall. It's about freaking time!
We're less than a month away from preseason guys!
Are we there yet?
Says the newcomer-to-this-thread, long-enough-time-Sharks-fan who refuses to buy Center Ice and therefore lives at the mercy of NBC Sports Network and local broadcast Kings and Ducks games (so, obviously, I always get to watch teams I love).
I imagine being a Sharks fan is tough. Always a contender, never keeping it together late in the playoffs.
We actually have developed a unique culture of suffering where we believe that all of our pain will one day be rewarded. Or that's just how we keep our psyche together when we're the oldest NHL team to never have made it to the Stanley Cup Finals as our core gets older and older.
But luckily all my other sports teams are pretty terrible so I was well-conditioned to latch onto the Sharks. Well, that and a whole series of events ranging from my fourth grade binder to the Sharks being the only team I could watch for four years in college combined for me to become a Sharks fan.
