Good Point Mex. The new CBA states a maximum of up to 50% cap hit.

Inspiring - never looked at it that way.

Nope. Just his paycheque stub.

Richards will clear and the Kings will save...$925K of Cap Space while still being forced to pay his complete salary even if he plays in the AHL.

Certainly the last one.

Regarding Jagr coming to Montreal - and the outstanding post by Poster "24 Cups" earlier, there is NO chance of that happening. There is a lot of chatter out there that GMMB does not want to mess around with the present Chemistry and the Coach Therrien System of player accountability for 200 feet. Certainly most Habs fans would agree that the team has some very high skilled players, yet the success of the Habs is so much more about the goals of the whole outweighing the needs of the individuals. Jagr is still a very proud player and is on record stating he needs 17-18 minutes to excel versus being some type of role PP player at the 12-13 minutes level. Ex: Jagr is playing 18:23 this year with NJ. He has 9 goals and is Minus -10. The Habs will not trade for Jagr even if the cost is a 5th Round Draft pick. Sometimes great sports athletes don't know how to say Goodbye - holding on, and refusing to acknowledge that their skills have diminished while blaming everything from skates to sticks. Athletes such as Gordie Howe - the Great Ali - Willie Mays - Brett Favre....

Good Afternoon from the east. A few revelations from the NHL gimmick weekend. 1) When Carey Price was miked-up, he let it slip that his injury against Columbus was a back injury and it appears that it is fully healed which is great news. 2) The Habs-Loving Sportsnet is running a story and video on Carey Price. The video shows Price on the All Star team bus - looking out the window, he sees a fan with a Kessel sweater. He then remarks, " Do you think he'll throw it on the ice?" followed by a hearty, good natured chuckle. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/price-quips-about-jersey-throwing-maple-leafs-fans/ The Sportsnet Habs Love Agenda is so obvious - except to some sensitive Leaf fans that have not witnessed their team in ANY Cup Final since The Doors' released their début album The Doors, and The Beatles released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Some Leaf fans comments were 'interesting.' "As a Leafs fan, I'm not offended at all by the daily jabs thrown at my team from anybody. It's because they're the most important team in the WORLD that people can't stop talking about them." " That just shows how classless this guy is.no wonder that pk and him get along so well. Just as the fans are idiots so is the team....anyway playoffs are coming,soon be to time for him to fake an injury....." And if anyone believes HIO has a Moderator issue, how does Sportsnet allow this comment to stand? " Wannabe Indian cowboy lol go smoke another one Carrey."

The Over/Under bet for an actual body check is 1. Not much money being bet on the Over.

Max roster is 23 not counting IR or LTIR. If he is called up without Habs injury, someone has to go down and possibly pass through waivers. He is a nice insurance policy if multiple injuries arise.

hi 24 It's so unfortunate that site went down. Here's hoping whatever health issue is going on with Matthew finds a a good and great ending. From here, there was/is a business to be had there. It was incredibly comprehensive with truly no viable competitor. Ex: Give some basic info, then charge a few dollars a month for full access. A few bucks a month X several thousand followers adds up quickly towards a nice lifestyle or the ability to further invest in even more innovation with exclusive material. Although it is not Bible, NHL folks consult that site to get a 'feeling' about what's going on and the overall picture. Their own Capologists then tighten up the info.
