I bet it's hard to find coaches that want to live in Winnipeg. World class food trucks can only take you so far.

What is the penalty on those super long contracts again?
You get a cap recapture charge based on the amount of AAV that was saved vs how much was paid out.


Alot of these contracts were structured such that the vast majority of the money was paid on the front end of the contract, and the last few seasons were more or less the league minimum where the player could retire off into the sunset and effectively leave almost no money on the table. So a 10 year, 100 million contract would $10mil AAV, but if the player retired after say 7 years, they might only leave $3mil on the table and the team would get that money back, so it is effectively a 7/97 but the team saves close to 4 mil a year against the cap

I don't even know if I'll watch the game. Location is cool, but everything else about it is not. Why the Kings? Why those fucking awful jerseys?

For the record the #Canucks requested the #Blackhawks be in the building on Sedin jersey retirement night. Felt it was the most fitting opponent.



Also, Duncan Keith is currently sitting at 99 goals, 499 assists, and 598 points

Crazy stat: Pastrnak is the first player to have two hat tricks against the Canadiens in a single season since Gordie Howe in 1951-52

Wouldn't mind another 8+ game losing streak for the Habs.
They need to make up ground on the draft lottery.

45 minutes for the pre-game ceremony? What were they doing....debating which Sedin is uglier?
