Connolly/Good, Bad, and Ugly vs NJ/

Posted December 13, 2011
What a mess. First Connolly goes down at the world junior camp with an injury (although we are told it is nothing serious, and he was back at it Monday playing in an intrasquad game for Team Canada), and then we see yet another game lost by the Lightning. Watching the Lightning/Devils game, you have to think it was a good thing to get Connolly out of this environment. He is in strong competitio... Read More »

Keeping it PG: Yikes. But as much as I'd like to blame the Flyers for everything, there has to be more to it tha... Read More »
[b]Hedman:[/b] So we are hearing that Hedman is very close, and may have actually agreed to a new contract extension (just needs to sign the dotted line). If the figures are true (around $4M per year for 5 years), then this is a great day to be a Bolts fan. I would have expected a higher cap hit, or a shorter term for him. This is slightly more money than Schenn, less than tavares or Myers. A... Read More »
