      Insults/Name-calling will not be tolerated   11/19/2016

      It's great to see the boys earning their way into the playoffs this season (barring a Colorado-would-be-proud collapse).  What a night-and-day difference from way back in November.   With the playoffs, we typically see more traffic/visitors on the site, usually from the opposing team's fanbase (especially from the Oilers).  This is just a reminder that stating your opinion is fine (it's exactly what these forums are for), and friendly, good-natured ribbing is OK, however, name-calling and insults will still be a major no-no and cause for the Banhammer to warm up.  This applies to all new guests and visitors as well: you're more than welcome to join the party, but civility is house rule around here.   All insults/name-calling will be met with a zero-tolerance approach, regardless if you are a new person to the forums, or have been around since these forums began.   First-offenses will be met with a moderator-needs-to-approve-your-post for 3 days Second offenses will be met with a week-long suspension Third offenses will result in a perma-ban   If you have any questions regarding this policy, or would like to voice your concern about it, you are absolutely free to contact me directly.   We all love this team, and this game.  Let's all hop on the Bandwagon, enjoy a few beverages, and ride this wave of excitement as far as we can.   --  Kulstad

T J Brodie - Too Early To Discuss A Contract?

2 posts in this topic

It's great to have hockey back and despite our lowly position in the standings, there are so many positives for this team going forward. One of the most promising stories has to be the continued improvement of T J Brodie, a real home-grown talent on the blue-line showing great skill and maturity in his sophomore year, already surpassing my high hopes. He has to be a keeper and a key piece for the future. His contract is up for renewal this year. It will be interesting to see what kind of contract he is after, especially considering the cap tied up on the blue line already.

it'l be small, something along the lines of 1-1.5 for a year or two and then he'll be in line for a potentially bigger contract after that.

After this season he still dosn't have a full NHL season under his belt to properly evaluate his impact and that's going to limit his ability to negoatie. Plus he is an RFA with no arbitration rights he basically has no negotiating power. He'll get a smaller deal and then if all goes well he'll be in line for a bigger one next go around.
