Oh yes, the cap hit the Philadelphia Flyers incurred for Chris Pronger on that seven-year deal seemed big, especially because he's 34 years old already. But what the hell, right? If he retired at any point in the final three or four years, it would cost them next to nothing, right?
Well, the NHL doesn't think so, and the fallout is a cautionary tale all NHL teams should really keep an eye on.

Those ill-conceived knee-jerk rushes to judgment after the first few days of the free-agency period are so annoying, mostly because they get in the way of our own ill-conceived knee-jerk rushes to judgment.

Are they trade winds a-blowin'? It would certainly appear that way. But the question is... Who are the Canucks trading?

The Canucks have signed ex-Avalanche goaltender Andrew Raycroft to a contract.

So what do the Canucks do now?
Do they sign a couple of free agents? Are they going to offer up a big trade? Do they re-sign Mats Sundin? Are they counting on Cody Hodgson making the team? What do they at backup goalie?
Does Mike Gillis have some master plan for filling out the rest of this team?
