    Blake gets A+ on Pearson contract at least a B+ on the Tyler one so a nice start :). There speculation Greene will be bought out now… Gaborik I think they should give at least 1 more year then decide to trade him, keep, or buyout… Since the last 2 years of contract will only cost about 4.1M… His first year he was worth that contract having a pace for 30+ goals if a full season with his 27 goals in less than that. IF Voynov was there the entire year he probably would have produced 35 goals or more… Maybe he has another bounce back year from injuries that could help…

    I think watching that Stanley Cup final the NHL is more akin to sports entertainment like the WWE. The goals they took away especially the off side one makes it clear who they wanted to win. As for the dumb rule a ref can blow a play dead at any moment including blinking… If NHL was a sports league the ref would have to lose sight of a puck for at least 5 seconds to justify that in reality. Even watching on TV especially when not in HD its common to lose where the puck is located for a second or two. You can’t have a legit sports league when the ref can blow a play dead or end any play for even intending to stop it. Granted Pekke Rinne didn’t play well other than maybe 2 or 3 games to make sure Nashville would be able to get shafted by the NHL creative control story tellers. I don’t think it matters what moves the Kings do if the NHL decides they don’t want them to win another Stanley Cup. I’m happy to have That 70’s Line for at least another few years though even if it don’t pan out well :)…
