Mix yourself another drink, and I’ll tell you how much tax was paid to rent said uterus. Maybe we’ll even have time to discuss the birthing bonus.

I have a question concerning free agency...If memory serves me correctly. When Tavares was a UFA teams lineup the week prior to free agency, teams interested and acceptable to the free agent were able to make a pitch.

I have not seen that the last few years. Is no longer allowed? If it is why are we not seeing this. Especially from the Islanders.

If the Isles cannot figure out FA, they need to master the trade route.

You’re a hoot! When you coming to a game on Long Island? I’ll drive you to the game and even buy you a beer.

They couldn’t and didn’t interview him until he was a FA. He had a interviewing process on the first day of free agency with 3 or 4 teams.
If he did this a week prior it would have been tampering under CBA rules.

Thank you. From some reason I thought they were allow to meet with them a week prior but nothing could be official until free agency began.

So unless something changes of the course of the next few weeks. We are looking at pure speculation for another month.

That is the equivalent of a 6 year old waiting on Christmas eve for Santa Claus to come.

Here is an outside the box trade.

Islanders send Walhstrom, AB, Salo and a 1st

to Buffalo for Tage Thompson.

OR

Islanders send Varly, AB, Salo and a 1st

to Buffalo for Tage Thompson.

Kadri, Thompson..... Is this the "You can never have too many centers" strategy?

Do like Thompson though.

No smart azz....I was taking information off NHL.com about right wings. Thompson was listed as right wing Mr. Funny Man. You might want to take a look before tossing your sarcasm !!!!

What is funny is that the group is like another??? He is too old !!! his blade is facing the wrong way... There is truly no winning with your guys.

If you review the Sabres team both offers with help them. Its not a ones sided deal and you get a guy that is 24 !!! With his father having ties to the organization.

You basement GM's formulate a better proposal. Would love to hear it.

The guy is 24 and has not hit his prime and he is succeeding on a Sabres team !!! Just imagine what he might do on a team that can support him and play defense.
