Anyone who hasn't driven drunk before please feel free to cast the first stone. As far as the recreational drugs, I don't know many friends who haven't at least dabbled. I get it, he's a professional athlete, da da da, but we all have our days when we say fuck it and want to blow off steam. Let's give him a clean slate and see what he can do, its not like he went Ray Rice on anyone.

I don't like the fact that it's one year. We already have enough UFA's next off-season. Does Moore remain an RFA? Will he have arbitration rights? I think this kid is solid and has a really high ceiling. Wish they would have made a two year commitment.

Stralman has every right to be pissed. Second best defensemen on the team to Mac and he saw G and Mac get their pay days. He watched G get grossly overpaid and still made a reasonable offer out of loyalty to a team that never had a plan on resigning him anyways. God I want a mulligan on that fucking Girardi contract

Not just the weight, but the fact that Kreids isn't using straps or even chalk for those Deadlifts is ridiculous. That is a lot of weight to rely on just your grip to carry.

Anyone see this?
Me thinks Thornton might want out now....
Wait, Hayes is a center? I thought he was a winger... That makes him even more desirable! 6'4" center who can score? Yes please.

Great Article. Horrifying but great. Thanks Kevin! Can't wait for the season to start.
@IcyCup He's an RFA but he's arbitration eligible. Which means, he'll get what he's "worth" on a long term deal or 1 year deal (like Zucc this year).... Sather has a lot less leverage than he did last time he was an RFA
Great update, as always, Adam. Much appreciated.

It's all about the brand name. Corporate America at its finest. Girardi was a former all-star with a reputation while Stralman was a nobody. Even the fans are to blame because the majority would pick G based on what he's done rather than Stralman based on what he is currently doing. Tragic but true. No American consumer trusts the no name generic brand
Completely agree when it happened and still do. They should have let him walk or traded him and kept Stralman (the better defenseman) for a million less and a year less term.
Here's his hockey's future page... says he needed work on his skating back when it was written (before his Senior year when he blew up)... He really only had one WOW season at BC. Maybe the Hawks aren't that crazy about him and that's why he's testing the market.

If Sather can lure this kid to NYR it'd be a great way to offset those two 1st rounders he gave up for MSL. Maybe Kreider can have a little pow-wow with him and convince him!
@johnAMIRANTESrug I just refreshed this page 5 times because I thought the comments weren't all loading. All I saw was "Look at the brightside Gentlemen..." and then white.... Haha
I've said it before but here it is again, I'm friends with Dorsetts cousin in LA. She told me Dorset and AV did not get along AT ALL. Combine that with the fact that Dorsett continually played over carcillo and I think it's safe to assume AV didn't like Carcillo either.
I think the only thing we understand about the Glass signing is AV and Sather just want players who know their role and shut the fuck up and do it this year. Carcillo, Boyle, Dorsett all refused to accept theirs. Too bad cause I'd take anyone of them over Glass.
Hate to break it to you Kev, but I'm friends with Dorsett's cousin who lives in LA. She says Dorsett and AV did not get along AT ALL. Add that to the fact that Dorsett STILL PLAYED OVER carcillo and methinks Carcillo isn't popular with the big man either. Don't think he'll be coming back. I really believe AV went after Glass because he believes Glass will know his role and stick to it. Not ask for more ice time, not complain, just do his job. Hopefully he does it better than we all expect.... oy

You must be new here
God, imagine if they could get E Kane and a number 1 center?
Stralman rejected a 3 year 3 million per offer from Sather during the season

@Derek Stepan @AnnoyingJoe There's only one song they have to play
GRRR! Can Sather get a mulligan on that Girardi contract or what???
@AnnoyingJoe saw that the other day... too awesome
@Brukie_ @brian2686 @GiveGartneraCup Stralman has been the 2nd best d-man on this team since 2012. They should have realized that and taken the discount for Stralsy not being a brand name like G
@fs2020 @GiveGartneraCup I have thought Stralman has been the 2nd best defensemen on the team since 2012. Goes to show you, when it comes to handing out contracts, its all about the brand name and not the actual product.
I would have no problem with what happened yesterday, if not for that ridiculous contract Sather handed to Girardi during the season. Stralman would have saved the team 1 million annually and 2 years. Ridiculous.
Anyone else wish we didn't sign Girardi to that ridiculous contract now? Would have saved 1 million per by signing stralman and letting G walk....
I'm friends with Dorset's cousin (she lives here in LA). She told me on many occasions that Dorset and AV did not get along. guessing after the comments from Sather and the signing of Glass, Dorset was also pushing for an increased role on the team.
Think, as you said Kev, that is the real reason behind some of these moves.
Great article on Erhoff from buffalo blog: his advanced stats are incredible. Might be worth the money
Center. Center. Center. Center. Center!
