In case anyone is curious, Collberg in a brief interview states that he does not intend to play in the AHL this season: "If I don't make the team, I'll go straight back to Frolunda" - but he is dead set on trying to make the team this year, and that the NHL is ultimately his big dream. http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/article17442974.ab#

The Flyers have no cap space now, but will have approx. 4.9mil when Pronger's salary comes off the books at the beginning of the season. For some reason they have to wait until then to have it removed, have no clue why.

spot on *slow clap*

Can't blame the guy for leaving the Cavaliers (you could make the argument the manner in which he left, 'the announcement', was unprofessional, but that's trivial at best). He played under a CBA that told him where he had to work until the age of 26. And then when he finally had a choice, he decided to leave an organization owned by a clown who was all for superstars teaming up until he found himself at the short end of that stick. Heck, Dan Gilbert made the entire NBA look like a joke with his emails during the CP3/Lakers scandal. Lebron left Cleveland for less money because his boss was an idiot.
- Comment on Rimouski defenceman Morin could be a good fit for Habs at draft (2013-05-23 11:59:17)
Apparently Nygren was scheduled to come over to Hamilton for 6 games in April but his home club screwed up the paperwork. He said at the time that he was massively disappointed. He later retracted his comments to a Swedish Newspaper but it might indicate that he wants to come over sooner rather than later. http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/hockey/sverige/elitserien/farjestad/article16578166.ab

Collberg says he will most likely play another season in Frolunda. "I think the plan is for me to play an entire season back home and develop further" Magnus Nygren says coming over is 50/50 next season. "It feels really great, really happy Montreal seems to have a plan for me" http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportbladet/hockey/internationellt/nhl/article16818819.ab
- Comment on Gionta’s season is over; Prust, White out for Game 5; Price listed as day-to-day (2013-05-08 14:04:23)
at the right price? sure.... As much as I hate his face, I reluctantly admit I'd love for MB to sign Horton. Always pretty good in the playoffs
- Comment on Habs get some good news with Gallagher; Price will start Game 4 (2013-05-06 16:10:00)
hasn't been the same since the hit, wtf?!? he may have sucked so far in the playoffs but simmer down now, the dude potted 33 goals last year. he just needs to step out of his awful slump right now

Agree on the sucked in part - but I think MB is already ahead of you on moving away from the Gainey philosophy. It just takes a couple of seasons to make that change - can't overhaul an entire roster in one offseason. MB will get the team to where it needs to be.

Here, the Habs played shitty first two periods then collapsed in the 3rd - that game the Flyers thoroughly dominated them for the entire game
