The money in the NBA is wild but NHL free agency is such a disaster. They really need to get a lower limit on the contracts. the 7 and 8 year deals are almost all disasters in FA.

Also, 1st offer sheet in 6 years goes to Aho from Montreal.

I love how vs baseball , in nhl .. you are at risk for losing guys so early in their careers

If AHOs offer sheet isn’t matched , it would be like Gary Sanchez signing with another team that soon into his big career

It's not really a thing though. There is like 1 offer sheet every 5 years because the compensation structure is so prohibitive. If it was like your next 1st and 2nd or 2 1sts max then it would be a lot more interesting. 4 1sts is just stupid.

Glad we have management that’s first priority is improving the hockey club. Sure, Carolina matched and the Habs didn’t lose anything. Really would like to see more GMs take a shot at offer sheets.

the reason it's not a thing is because of essentially a wink wink nod nod agreement amongst organizations. certainly AHo would be worth the second tier penalty.

The Marner situation is making me nervous

The Rangers won.

This proving that Dolan is not a cancer and that Durant is a flucking pu$$y.

Getting Panarin is huge. Traded for Trouba, drafting Kakko... the future is bright.

Kreider will be a FA after next season. Will be interesting to see if they trade him for assets. Not sure they will want to take the cap hit when they are still a couple years from being serious contenders and will have to start paying the younger guys more $ in the coming seasons.

*Dolan still sucks

The Knicks did not offer Durant the max. Why would you expect him to sign there?

Glad to see Aho stay in Carolina.

He was never coming.

He was scared to fail.

When he fails in Brooklyn, we will all just laugh and say I told u so, then forget he ever played there.
