I think it's a good price if you're a Whalers fan. I can't imagine there are many of these around.

I see no reason why an Arp purchase can't be made here. For $40, I expect nothing less

I think I should get it and sell it at the sportscard expo. I would put a price of $200 on it

I'm sure you would offer Arp a discount.

The NHL needs to address the tax situation. Methot saves $700,000 a year by moving from Ottawa to Dallas. No wonder the Canadian teams were on his no-trade list.

Radulov receives the same offer from both Montreal and Dallas...chooses Dallas.

So he verbally agrees to the Stars offer, Montreal gets wind and matches and he says he can't go back on his word to Dallas. I love that now he feels his word is worth something.
When I go to a fast food restaurant, and my order comes to $6.28, I like to give the cashier $18.71. They look at me and say 'What's this?' and I say 'I'm all in'. They usually fold.

I don't know if this is true. Could be. Apparently Montreal made their offer before July 1st. I don't know if that's true either.

The tax situation is shitty and gives some teams a definite advantage when it comes to signing free agents. This is true.

The salary cap should be based on Net and not Gross, but it'll never happen.

only way to fix it is to get rid of the salary cap again. (which I would be in favour of). or have a soft cap with Luxury tax like the MLB.

In other news, former Penguin Depres is kind of a douche.

This isnt a troll post, or something to upset the masses ...however:

If the Penguins win the Stanley Cup, I will stop watching hockey for a full year.

This is a 100% true story.

Phil Kessel, hot dog with Cup thing. Is it...

1) Witty
2) Kind of silly when you realize how long ago the story was
3) Questionable why would he waste his time with the Cup to take a shot at a reporter
4) Hilarious
5) All of the above

I was on 1+4, and now I'm kind of on 2+3 a little too. So, #5 maybe? I dont know. Don't want to overanalyze it, just want to leave it at its funny, but I guess I'm wondering aloud.

I think it's funny. I don't even consider it a shot at the reporter, since it was so long ago, it's more like a funny story that has kind of followed him around for a few years now. Considering he was at a golf course, it's not like it was difficult to acquire a few hot dogs for a funny picture. I'm going with a firm 1+4 on this one.

I know some people think it is silly but if someone also took a run at me I don't forget. I would also give it a 1 & 4
