That is surprising. It's already been an interesting off season.

Exactly the opposite - they don't pay him anything, and they take a 250k penalty against the cap. ( per a tweet from @tsnbobmckenzie)

The Bruins have me worried here. When is the last time an 8 year contract turned out well with a goalie. The most games Rask has ever played is 45 in 09-10. Bergeron I am not as worried about with the extension.

Eh, when we the cap goes up, it is going to look like a deal. As long as his agent does not pull some crap when other goalies are making much more. Then it will pudding pie in the eye.

Rask is 26 and this contract will keep him in Beantown for a few years, and he can do his job without the distraction of worrying aboot money. If his numbers drop, or whatever, they can address that down the road. I've liked him since he got there. With Bergy signed long term, the B's are going to contend for years! I'm excited for the upcoming season.

NHL Stadium Series

http://www.globaleventforum.com/nhl/...eries-packages Seems the NHL is cashing in on a great idea. As a NY Rangers fan, I'm going to try & get to Yankees stadium for one of the games.

Just wish Girls Lite wasn't the sponsor - Yuke - I rather drink water it taste the same


Plus The WC http://www.globaleventforum.com/nhl/winter-classic

So says the guy form the self hating city

Oh Oh NY boo boo

Perfect Example

Pats win the SB & what was heard at the championship parade

Yankees suck, really? Really

Why couldn't the fans just enjoy the win??

Inferiority complex much?

BTW - I think Boston is a great city & the fans have great passion for their teams, but stop thinking like a red headed step child & maybe you'll win more.

Oh and I'm a NY Giants fan too

I'm just going to pretend I can't hear you! But, where can I get some of that hair?

Except for the last part, Go Big Blue! What can I say, we had one TV station, CBS. When it is NE and the NYG; I am happy either way.

Now back to hockey! Subban will be in Providence this year. Can't wait to see him play in the AHL. His Ontario numbers look pretty decent. Can't wait to see what he does against the boys chomping at the bit for the show.

The kid heading to BC, Fitzgerald , got some good props out of camp too. I did not get to go, but my one of my friends got to stop by camp and said the kid is quick and skilled. Will he stay at BC all four years?

Bring it...October is closing in.

Let me know when there's more awesome in this thread and fewer inmates lining up to give Ashton Kutcher a handjob.


Who, by the way, is not awesome.


This is awesome.
