I got ya, we'll have to agree to come up with another word beside "irrelevant". To me being restricted is a huge advantage for a team with the player being sought - whether your dolt of an owner is willing to match offers is another story. But I see what you are saying. I don't think Bettman has it in him to make any changes to that though, unless Lowe continues to "tamper" with the system and people team up with Burke.
The Penner and Vanek offers really opened up Pandoras Box....

Personally, I don't think any of the Isles kids will be much of anything. But if they do, they are as good as gone.

also, I think they should extend the entry level contracts to 5 years since they have the salary cap. It can help the blend of young and vets before you have to start paying out...

Kind of like what the Twins are able to do.

How is 20-25 goals dillusional for a guy who is a goal scorer? That's not that much, not like I predicted 40 you jerk...come back when he scores at least 20 then talk to me

Okposo can't skate. I play hockey and he is really bad, always falling and off balance. Kind of reminds me of Gary Howitt or Nick Fortiu. Though, Mike Bossy wasn't a great skater.

Nick Fotiu was actually a very good skater and had a pretty good wrist shot.
