    Doughty is definitely going to handcuff the team like Kopi.

    8 mil is one thing but 8 years? Holy balls.

    There was plenty of that talk already on NHL Radio when the contract was announced.

    Crazy ****! Burns is already 31. Man bites Sharks.

    Good read. GMs have a very difficult job under this CBA and salary cap.

    Heartless and distant seems to be the way to go for the front office. But then the room could suffer. Tough balancing act.

    Is "Sean McIndoe" a nom de plume? Or was Mondo just the ghost writer.
