Oh, yeah. He is talking to any team about just any player on his team. It's hard to move guys in the cap era, but he will try.
OK, but somebody has to buy all that premium seating. I would love to be wrong about St. Louis, but I don't see that money here. MLS yes, XFL maybe, NBA no.
I haven't checked the attendance there, but that seems to be a well-run franchise. With the AHL shifting more teams to the Southwest and West, the Rampage aren't such a geographical outlier.
Too early to tell with him. He has shown flashes of the old Fabbri, but getting an unrelated injury made it tougher for him to come back from the two knee injuries. He needs game time to regain timing and confidence.
Yeah, Armstrong would take Hutton back for those dollars right now. If he had Hutton, he would have a team in the playoff mix. This was the make-or-break year for Allen and he broke.
I just wrote about Schenn being a hot trade topic, so he is not excused from any of this. The Blues aren't convinced he is worth that money and that is why teams are asking about him. And I would not consider Schwartz untouchable either. He has been prone to injury and he has only excelled in stretches.
I don't blame the owners for refusing to pay older guys giant money. There is ample evidence that this is really bad business. So the players need a CBA that gets them to arbitration and free agency sooner. The crime is not the old guys getting squeezed, it's all the younger guys working for a fraction of their true value.
Let's see where the market goes. As noted earlier, the market for free agents will be thin. And the trade market won't excite either. All year I wrote about how crazy goaltending has been this season. So let's wait and see what things look like this summer.
OK, I got an early start today and I have to duck out. Sorry I could not get to everybody. See you next time!
