@Bueller @shoot_the_goalie @trswann I doubt any team other than us or Buf would be willing to give him that. I could be wrong though, but other teams will evaluate him as a player and not what he means to the franchise bc only the NYR had to add that piece to it. His agent definitely screwed this up for him.

@IhaveawaiteratMSG @trswann it really does suck. I wish him the best of luck bc he never gave any of the fans a reason to hate him....until his contract demands became apparent that is.
I am really upset to see Cally go. Always loved him and probably always will. But at the end of the day this is a business. I do think however this is not a great trade for the Rangers. I've called this a horrible trade already, but in actuality it's not a horrible one. On a scale of 1 to 10, with one being an utter catastophy and 10 being a steal, I think this falls at a 3-4 for the rangers. There was no reason to give up the second round pick and on top of that make it convertible to a first round pick. A 1st and a 3rd that wouldn't be convertible I think would have been fair and made the overall deal a 5-6.
I will say however that Cally should find a new rep. He totally misled him on what he was worth. Talent-wise, I would give say he'd be worth about $5M/year, very similar to what he's making now. I understand he wants a raise because at the end of the day it is a business, but to think he was worth more than $6M or even $6.5M is very misguided. The Rangers did the right thing in not giving in to his demands. The valued him in contract negotiations at the right amount taking into his talent plus what he brings to the team on and off the ice.
@IhaveawaiteratMSG @upstate tom to say McD isn't old enough to be captain is very misguided. Crosby was named capt. in pit when he was 19! I think McD steps in as Captain. already signed long-term and on his way to becoming one of the best defensemen in all of hockey
@mando24179 believe it or not, that would be a great location for NJD v. PHI, or NJD v. PITT, or NYR v. NJD (obvi) or even NJD v. WAS...more geographic possibilities based on proximity of other teams and their fans

I'll be making videos like these throughout the season (trying to at least). So amped for the start I have a countdown by minutes on my computer!
Not bringing it up directly doesn't mean what they talked about didn't have negotiating implications. This will help shed light on the situation more for the players so they can understand better why the owners are making the proposals they are. Once all the facts are out for everyone involved, more productive negotiations are much more likely to take place. I see this meeting as a very good event, but not something I am going to get too excited about just yet.
1 year, 5 months ago on NHL, NHLPA Meet for Five Hours, Don't Discuss CBA
the league doesn't HAVE TO lock the players out when the CBA expires. If a deal seems to be in sight, why lock the players out on Sept 15? No need to. By not locking the players out, it would probably be seen as a gesture of good faith and might speed up the negotiations. If substantial progress is made over the next few days, there might not be a need to lock the players out. Now if a week after it expires, negotiations seem to be moving in the opposite directions, then I wouldn't be surprised to see the players get locked out.

"...it's time for him (Lundqvist) to go home" - Erik Karlssson
he did say "hopefully it's time for him (Lundqvist) to go home", he didn't say it is....the extra word makes a big difference, but I sill think he needs to get shut up
