i agree to a certain extend on the vanek case. sure lowe was playing w/in the rule, and his only concern should be to make his team better, so its not like he did anything wrong. but dat move is frown upon (rightfully or not) by other GMs and ppl just arent happy when u do something dat is not "proper". like last yr when clarke gave kesler dat offer sheet, most ppl (even non vancouver fans) are upset, becuz it (supposedly) skyrocket all other RFAs asking price. sure vanek gets more money, but so does (in theory) other RFAs. in a cap world dat is a big deal. plus if it start a trend, there'll be chaos when every team is signing each other's RFAs. i honestly dunno how i feel about the whole thing, all i know is it really screw over the sabres and im glad hehe.
hey did u hear dat lindros is retiring? tough way to go out for a player w/ so much promises.
