    Was going to make a fantasy joke with you as the punchline earlier and looky here.

    Played it once and it was a miserable experience. Commissioner was a KW type.

    Yahoo now lets you click one button and every active player gets moved into the lineup. Removes a lot of the headache.

    Also, none of this 10 categories means 10 different games bullshit. Points are scored, and you either win or lose at the end of the week.

    I had no idea Matthews was half Mexican. If Trump had his way, he wouldn't exist

    It's only his mother, and she married an American, so I would highly doubt it.

    I didn't expect Nashville to be the worst team in the league with 1/7 of the season gone. Especially after getting PK Subban

    Vegas name, logo, and colors unveiled tonight.

    What has leaked so far suggests it will be Desert Knights (:ridiculous:) with black, sand, and red as an accent (:shrug:)

    Panarin's an RFA, so I don't know how all the rules work, but I can't imagine he would even be eligible for the expansion draft. I guess Vegas could just go sign him and forfeit pretty much their entire draft in 2017, but that seems unlikely.
  42. IWMB

    IWMB Resident Umpire

    He is. RFAs still need to be protected like players under contract, and they will actually get 48 hours prior to the draft to sign any unprotected RFAs & UFAs.

    That's right he's a RFA.. But saw reports he wants 6M per year in a bridge deal. I don't know if the Hawks can afford that with the cap. This assumes the cap doesn't go up a huge amount. So Panarin wouldn't get to pick his location, its Saad all over again.
  44. IWMB

    I don't think you know what a bridge deal is. If he's getting $6M it's going to be long term, not 2-3 years.

    Stan was supposedly looking into Saad coming back since he's on the outs in Columbus.

    :pass2:

    They'll find the money for Panarin and lock him up.

    To be fair to Saad, he's playing for a complete dinosaur idiot. If they could somehow bring him back (very likely not), it would be fantastic.

    Panarin has probably been their best player after Crow this season, but it's hard to see how they squeeze another $6M AAV contract in. My guess is Kruger might be lost to Vegas (maybe McPhee would be stupid enough to take TVR), so they gain maybe a bit of space there, but god damn do they need the cap to increase substantially (although ironically enough there's really no great chance of that happening unless the Hawks are in the Finals).

    Kruger is definitely going to Vegas.

    It doesn't help that Panarin is rather old as phenoms go, so he needs to grab maximum bank now

    Just saw the damnedest thing I ever seed in the Jets v Oilers game. Letestu (EDM) is taking a shot from right wing and it rebounds off the goalie to the left wing, where rookie phenom Patrik Laine (WPG) buries the game winner into his own open net. It is almost like he forgot he was in his defensive zone. Bizarre!

    Raanta with b-2-b shutouts. We will probably see him again on Tuesday night...
