Around the NHL: 2014-2015

Recommended Posts

The NHL draft is roughly 31 hours away. NHL free agent frenzy is in full swing and there are a host of things that are about to go on this summer. Time for the new 2014-2015 Thread.

So it's like celebrating New Year's eve on the 29th? Maybe we open a Fourth of July thread? :flirt:

Wouldn't it be more like celebrating New Year's eve on the 30th? Ya know because it has 31 days in the month?

Is today the first day of the 2014-15 season or something? :unsure:

 

These threads are quite confusing...why wouldn't the Gryba signing go in the "free agency" thread?

 

(Not trying to be a jerk or anything, at all...just trying to understand how this works, it's VERY different from OBD.)

I don't understand the issue. Historically this is exactly when we start the new season thread.

Yeah, the 2013-14 thread started two days before this one, last year, actually

I'm the thread police apparently, and I didn't even bring my handcuffs to this thread. Don't see an issue with it. The moves being made are going to impact 14-15. 13-14 is history (I know it'll be official on the 1st).

How about when ufa courting period begins, the thread may shift over. That really is the changing of the season.

I mean that's fine with me. I don't really care what the number at the Around the NHL thread says as long as we don't have to go to seven threads to discuss stuff. This thread and the Free agent frenzy thread should be pinned.

 

This thread would be for trades, coaching and front office stuff. Contract extensions, too.

Well RFA stuff should still go in the free agent frenzy thread, but small moves likely won't be mentioned there so guys like Gryba can fall here.

@FriedgeHNIC

Today, NHL also approved compensation for a team losing someone hired to be head coach, GM or President/Hockey Ops with another club

 

Generally, we're talking a third-round draft pick, and the club doing the hiring will have a window of three years to give it up.

 

@DarrenDreger

Cap teams are getting nervous as NHL-NHLPA continue discussions on next years salary cap. Less than $70 mil will be problematic for many.

On WGR there's a column about Draisaitl being a German player. and it says Jochen Hecht and Christian Erhoff are two "former" German Sabres he knows.

 

FORMER?

 

Erhoff's being traded and gr knows :o

Not surprised Berglund got an extension. He is a decent player for the blues. 3.7mil is also a decent rate per year.

@AnaheimDucks: New year, new look! Pre-order the new #NHLDucks home and road jersey today! http://t.co/32pkNeWBDA http://t.co/KYQDxw7iz6

 

Looks appropriate for National Lacrosse League or maybe the ECHL. Basically any sport where music is playing while the action is going.
