Hey All, I was just wondering if anybody knew what this "Mastercard Pre-sale for October Games" was all about? Do you need a Mastercard to buy tickets or is it just a promotional thing (a la "Molson 3 Stars")?

Man, I'm looking at the roster and I can't seem to make any attempt at guessing what the forward lines will look like. Maybe something like (top 3 in no particular order): Pacioretty-Desharnais-Parenteau Gallagher-Eller-Galchenyuk Bournival-Plekanec-Bourque Moen/Prust-Malhotra-Weise But really, the only thing I know is that Pacioretty and Desharnais will play together...after that, who knows?? Any other line combos floating around this summer that I've missed?

NYR gave Brassard $25m over 5 years. That Eller deal looks better and better.

Standard Operating Procedure, no? Team lowballs, agent....highballs(??), and the arbitrator meets somewhere in the middle. Nothing really to fret over, I reckon.

I asked the same question in another forum and the Piestany thing was mentioned too. I found it a strange thing to remember much less denigrate a player for. That Don Cherry flogged it makes allll the sense in the world.

Time for my annual game of "What The Hell Did Turgeon Do To The Hall of Fame Voters??" How is it that every year at this time he hear about all the players on the Hall of Fame bubble, and never ever do you hear the name Pierre Turgeon. He hit pretty much every marker needed for Hall entry - 515 goals, 1327 pts, 1.02 PPG...and yet, nuthin'. It's weird.

30. Nick Schmaltz, RW, Green Bay (USHL) – University of North Dakota commit may be the most skilled player in draft, but needs a linemate to lead him. Sounds like the perfect fit alongside Galchenyuk and Gallagher :)

If we're talking unsung heroes (and both Weaver and Weise absolutely are), then maybe we can spare a moment and appreciate just how useful Bournival has been - the boy's a Player. We fleeced Colorado on that'n.

I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum (I've been absent all season and have missed the fireworks), but where does The Commentariat stand on the return of Cammalleri as a rental?

Ah, I suspect that's the real reason. I was kinda hoping for the "HIO reason" if you know what I mean :)
