The Boston Bruins are reportedly planning to offer goaltender Tuukka Rask a contract extension at some point before the NHL season ends.
5 years $5.5 million?
Maybe I can't see them going to 6 without Chirelli having plans to move around other names, they'll have cap issues in the off-season.
this is why the leafs suck, giving a first rounder to get Rycroft.
Seriously? this is the only reason? How many boneheaded moves do they make each year...kessel...lindros...phaneuf....all the leaf fans screaming for luongo? with that huge contract? seems to me they could have drafted luongo. Leafs are terrible cause of the fans they support a team that continuosly makes these mistakes until the fans change the leafs will always be bottom feeders that get lots of golfing in.
very interesting how the nhl retroactively puts a poison pill on certain team's big contracts to make them pay for what the nhl sees as circumventing the spirit of the old cba. And yet bettman's buddie's team tosses a 5 million dollar cap hit away and not a word from anybody about that.It doesn't feel to me like this trade is following the spirit of any cba.The relationship between jacobs and bettman compounded with the proven interference of campbell has tainted the bruins and their success as well as the nhl as a whole.
you must be a leaf fan? lets point out everyone else's wrong doings but not your own? what did the bruins do wrong how did it go against the cba they traded a player players are traded all the time its not against the cba doesnt matter how big the contract is...and as for it being a salary dump and allowed because its jacobs? well one could argue its the islanders commtting fraud against the cap in a similar way..gaining cap so they are above the floor it has nothing to do with jacobs or bettman if thomas came back he would play for the islanders a trade is a trade whether player is suspended or not and as for the league shwoing favoritism...lets talk the blessed toronto maple leafs? why dont we have another team in southern ontario? exactly. mr bettman is in toronto's back pocket toronto says no and guess what the answer is to any team in southern ontario but yes lets put one in kansas city or las vegas....stop whining about minor details
the bruins get no more special treatment than any other team, want to talk about cba bull**** deals? how about the contracts made just before the cba expired? suter and parise? they only wanted 5 yr max terms but then they go and do that right before bargaining? the problem is not the bruins, the wild, the leafs, the habs or their owners its bettman bettman needs to go, complete problem in nhl would be solved
ever watched any rock em sock em videos? that hit that chara laid on him has been going on for years the only reason it had such consequences is the size difference, not charas fault and by the way you dont poke at someone all game and get cheap shots in then expect not to get a reaction as he did, and as for lucic i am a firm beleiver of if a goalie wanbts to leave his crease not just a foot or two but the way miller did and play the puck as a third defensemen let him have the same rules as a defensmen he was way out of the safety zone its his own fault play goal or play defense not both not sure which boychuk or marchand play u are refferring to so i cant respond and how many times did they run thomas and cross check him? i would retaliate as well? so miller should be safe and not touched but thomas can be? seems pretty fair to me not saying the bruins are perfect at all but you are honestly going to try and tell me burrows has never gotten away with anything? come on now thats nonsense every single game in the nhl there are penalties that go uncalled not just a b's game
