- Comment on Canadiens send Beaulieu and Bournival down to Hamilton (2014-10-22 15:27:03)
Is this a good time to point out that the Flames are right now in a playoff position in the Pacific division (4th) with a winning record (4-3-1) having beaten Chicago, and Nashville (both road games for the Flames) and taken TB to overtime? The Flames are probably not going to be in the playoffs in April, and they may be one of the top 5 picks in the next draft, but they aren't a team that is deliberately tanking. They are pretty close to the opposite of that in terms of attitude and philosophy.

If I'm remembering correctly, DD didn't do a back and forth like this. In 2009-2010 he was recalled twice Nov for 1 day and Feb for 9 days; In 2010-2011 he was recalled of 1 day at the start of Dec and then up permanently at the end of Dec. I remember, though, Boone making regular "when would the Habs bring him up?" comments because he had 45pts in 35 games. EDIT TSN's player pages does a really good job of listing a players transaction history. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/player-bio/david-desharnais/bio

I've holiday-ed in Cambodia. The place is beautiful, happy and saddening at the same time, and terrifying (well the traffic is terrifying). Way less guns than when I holiday-ed in Tijuana...

I'm pretty sure the old CBA also allowed for fines and maybe lost draft picks if the cap was exceeded. I haven't read those clauses in the new CBA yet. EDIT: I think the league can also do stuff like reject or void a trade because it violates the cap.
