Any update on Paul? Usually when a resigning gets announced by a major reporter, we see the deal signed and AAV released in minutes


I'd wager they're waiting to create some cap room before announcing the signing until moving McDonagh or Killorn.

They'll lose value on them as teams know they'd be over the cap after the signing.

Go away for the next week so we get lots of big trades


I’m leaving the week of the draft for PEI. Safe to say though I’m probably going to be glued on my phone, we’re going for the cavendish beach festival, but me and my dad will listen to the music from the camping ground (since it’s right next door).

Love it. The AAV gives them a reasonable shot at re-signing Palat & Rutta (assuming they trade Killorn or McDonagh), and Paul's only 27 (which is to say he'll be 34 by the time this deal is up). Lightning can cross this one off the offseason checklist with gusto.

that’s a good move - it’s like Yzerman said with Blashill.. we got ahead, and then we started regressing

Wow, well it is a Tampa classic, give a guy a long term deal, then move him because you need the cap space to give someone else a long term deal

I have a feeling SJ has narrowed their GM search and their finalists (down to two or even they have the one guy) believed Boughner needed to go (tough for Bob but I agree with the train of thought that is similar to Yzerman word) - I’m calling it as Brunette tbh.

I bet depth players are now praying to be traded to Tampa after seeing what Coleman, Goodrow and Paul got. Crazy what a deep run can do to a role player's next contract.

i wonder if they've already been talking to someone who's still available before they pulled the trigger and fired him.

i dont blame the pens if they let him walk


I dont really understand why you’d be reluctant to give more term to Letang if you’re the Penguins.

When Crosby and this core falls off in 3-4 years this team is gonna be bad, like real bad, for quite some time.
Having an overpaid, washed up Letang wouldn’t matter for a team who’s tanking for the first time in 20 years.

supposedly the Pens and Letang arent that far off - they may still let him walk but Elliotte said they are actually on the same page

Can you imagine a team offering a player 15 YEAR CONTRACT?

Can you imagine being the No. 1 overall pick of the new millennium but what you're most famous for is being KO'ed with a single punch from another team's backup goalie?

Can you imagine not having played in the NHL in a decade but still getting paid $1.5 million ANNUALLY all the way until 15 YEARS AFTER YOU LAST PLAYED???!!!!

Absolutely insane.
