    Owners have nothing to do with it. The HHOF is a separate organization that has a 18 members serving staggered terms.

    @SiriusXMNHL: BREAKING TRADE - the @penguins have traded LW Conor Sheary and D Matt Hunwick to the @BuffaloSabres in exchange for a conditional-fourth round draft choice in 2019. Pittsburgh does not retain any salary in the swap. https://twitter.com/SiriusXMNHL/stat...837824/photo/1

    Doughty and Kings believed to be finished talks, should be signing 8 years for around 11M aav. That'll do.

    8 years seems like a lot but he is only 28. Hell of a D man.

    The wait on Tavares continues...

    Biggest deal of the day is Statsny to VGK for 6.5/year for 3.

    AAV is $11 M

    Matthews, Tavares & Kadri down the middle. Josh Jooris will be a decent 4th line center.

    Sorry to see Bozak and JVR go though. Polak too. Nylander will likely be traded and Marner signed to a long-term deal.

    Wings re-up Green for two years. *shrug*

    They also get Vanek again. OK, sure.

    Bernier for 3 years, which tells me they have no confidence in the farm system. Bleh.

    With Tavares signing with the Leafs they are now the favorite to win the Cup at 6-1 odds.

    Nylander and a couple of Marlies to Nashville for PK?

    Look at the goaltending in this farm system. Jared Coreau? Tom McCollum? Really? I wouldn't have confidence in the goaltending in Red Wing farm system either. The last two goaltenders they've drafted, developed, and kept in Detroit are Jimmy Howard and Chris Osgood. Don't bring me Petr Mrazek.

    Coreau signs a one year deal with the Ducks. McCollum has been in and out of the Griffins/Detroit system for a decade. You, Fade, and I all know the Wings like their goaltenders well seasoned before promoting them, but that's more than well done, that's charcoal. The Wings know what they have with McCollum: a known constant for their farm club.

    It's likely going to be Säteri and a Griffins signing for their goaltending. I can't see Rybar coming from overseas, and Fulcher looks like another year in Hamilton would be just fine for him.

    The interesting thing to me is that this sets up Howard to be trade deadline bait.

    And Mrazek isn't coming back (yet) as he signed a deal with the Carolina Junior Red Wings... err... Hurricanes.

    I hate eNeMaU, and Coreau wasn't any worse than Bernier relative to price.

    Jay Beagle to Vancouver, $3 million a year for 4 years.

    Why can’t he play on a team I can stand?
