    6/41.4M for Nylander. There's some math involved for this season because there's a bonus and a pro-rated salary, and then 6.9M for the other 5 years. Pasta money.

    The Leafs now have ~$14 million to sign 10 players next year, including Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. Even if they trade Nylander, it's going to be tough for them to fit everyone in.

    I'm sure they've already got their team doctor putting together his case for Patty Marleau's LTIR designation.

    That's a Nice AAV for Nylander.

    This is pretty cool. Marc Savard played in a Bruins Alumni game yesterday. Great to Savvy. He’s building a nice social media presence, would be cool to see more of him around the league.

    Is there an AHL thread? If so, this belongs there.



    Hershey Bears fans threw 37,798 teddy bears onto the ice last night. That eclipses the world record set by fans of the Calgary Hitmen back in 2015.

    I do love me a Teddy Bear Toss.

    EDIT: The capacity of the Giant Center is 10,500. There were well over three times as many stuffed animals in attendance last night as there were actual people.

    Sounds like Flyers hire Chuck Fletcher as GM.

    Pittsburgh and Anaheim have some sort of deal involving Sprong.

    Also, BoG meetings are today and tomorrow. The official announcement for the Seattle team is happening when they are over. Arizona is going to the Central to balance the conferences.

    And the Calgary Hitmen have been using this fact to drum up interest in their upcoming bear toss game...so expect an update soon.

    Interesting tidbit: I know a guy who was on the ice as an opponent for the bear-throw goal a few years before the 2015 record...he said it was a pretty intense experience.

    ...and as an opponent you work pretty hard not to give up that goal...

    This is not quite right. Bettman said this week they expect the cap around $83 mil so that would give them about $27 mil in cap space. That isn't as much as it sounds though.

    Matthews and Marner will easily take up $20 mil of that space. That gives them 7 forwards, 2D and a goalie. and roughly 7 mil of space. They can juuuuust eek the lineup together if everyone else is a minimum guy but they also have Kapanen and Ozhiganov as RFAs and Hainsey and Gardiner as UFAs. They could LTIR Horton to get another $5.3 mil but its going to take some maneuvering for them to have a good team, even with their top 4 forwards potentially being 70+ point players. They think they are a cup contender, but they are closer to Dallas then they'd like to admit.

    Apparently a lot of media members in Seattle think the team will be called the Metropolitans. Ugh. Do we need another Mets?

    Seattle's historical hockey team was the Metropolitans, but I don't see them going with it for a modern team. Emeralds and Kraken seem to be the lead favorites amongst fans.

    Per this article, there are about 38 different possibilities. Don't really love any of them.

    I'm a huge fan of Sockeyes. It's unique.

    I don't have a problem with the Metropolitans. They were the first U.S. franchise to hoist the cup.

    Bonus if they base their jerseys on this old design.

    Seattle Sockeye has been the name of the elite men's ultimate frisbee team in Seattle since 1990, so it's not so unique.

    I know, it's just ultimate frisbee, but still.

    I'm on the Seattle Seals bandwagon. Seals are awesome. How can you vote against this face?

    They should buck all naming patterns and just go by "The Cascade". The Cascades/Cascadia is an informal name for the PNW, and the region is full of actual cascades (series of waterfalls) in the river valleys that make up the natural beauty. Also, this might be the thing that finally gives Stephen A Smith and Tony Kornheiser the aneurysms that take them off the air permanently.

    I saw somewhere the Vegas odds had the Seattle Totems as the favorite so far. Not a big fan of that, but it’s fine.

    I’m not a fan of sock eyes. The name sounds cool, but the fish isn’t. Oh no! Here come those dumbass fish from the northwest! Oh noes. Could you imagine the Bruins being the Boston Cod?

    Why is your helmet not on correctly and why are you not aware of where Reaves is on the ice?

    Should probably be suspendable, but they just set the precedent a couple days ago by not suspending Wilson.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    No. No singular names.

    I’m fine with Cascades, though.

    They should be called the Seattle Seamen.

    [​IMG]
    Potential marketing slogans:
    The Seamen: they're in your face!
    The Seamen are coming for you!
    Seattle Seamen: everywhere you want to be!

    The headlines write themselves:
    "Seamen Erupt for Big Win!"
    "Seamen All Over Canucks!"
    "Big Crowd on Hand for Seamen-Knights"
    "Multiple Seamen Ejected"
    "Canadiens Can't Stop Seamen"

    Announcers would be saying things like "There's Seamen all over the ice!" Or "You can't stop the Seamen, you can only hope to contain them."

    This really ended up helping the B’s out. The decks will be pretty much cleared for the Bruins heading into the expansion draft. Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, and Moore are the only players currently under contract for 2021. They’ll have room to work with, even when including expected extensions for McAvoy, DeBrusk and maybe Krug.

    If Seattle came in a year earlier, the Bruins would have a headache with Rask, Krejci and Backes on the books and carrying NMC’s in addition to Bergy, Marchand and Pasta.

    Someone on reddit called them the Rain City Bitch Pigeons and I can't stop laughing. It might be because I moved to Portland and the inter-city hate is real. Timbers-Sounders isn't Sox-Yankees, but it is an outlet for the small group of people that want to be THOSE fans.

    Edit: I'm now realizing that that's probably a seahawks reference, and feel dumb.
    Edit 2: Not Sox-Yankees dumb. Just Timbers-Sounders dumb.

    The fact that it's Crosby's number makes it even better, at least IMHO.

    That's phenomenal.
