    As long as he doesn't go to the fucking Rangers, I'm happy. As if they have three balls in the draft lottery. . .

    I can understand the feeling that an entire year was lost...

    But the difference between the better teams and lesser teams, in terms of the percentage of getting Crosby, is not much at all...

    The Penguins will be one of four clubs -- Columbus, Buffalo and the New York Rangers are the others -- that will have a 6.25 percent chance of landing Crosby...

    Ten other clubs will have a 4.17 percent chance, while the remaining 16 will have a 2.08 percent chance....

    You see, 6.25% compared to 2.08%, ain't too much, ya know ???

    I'm telling ya, it's gonna be one of the heavyweights.....

    I really think that percentage may be much bigger than it seems. However, I wouldn't rule out a trade...

    For sure. . .There's 4 teams with 3 balls each, so 12 out of 48 chance of first pick going to one of those teams.

    There's ten teams with 2 balls each, so 20/48 chance for first pick to be w/ one of those teams

    Then finally 16 teams w/ one ball each, so 16/48 chance for first pick to go to one of the best teams in the league.

    So statistically speaking, one of the middle teams will most likely get first pick. Go figure, the liklihood of Crosby going to one of the teams that "needs" him the most is the smallest for all the three groups as wholes.

    I don't necessarily say that the better teams should be completely shut out, but I think the lesser teams should have been given a much higher of percentage of getting the pick....

    Alexei Yashin is a joke. . .I hope no one buys him out and he gets sent packing back to Russia. Best thing Ottawa ever did was get rid of him.

    Ottawa got the pick they used to get Spezza who is going to be a superstar for the Sens, and they also got big Chara who is arguably the best d-man in the NHL.

    To the NYI, a fourth-line bum with a $90M contract hahahahaha

    NHL going live with draft lottery

    By Kara Yorio - SportingNews


    Well, what do you know? The NHL has changed its mind and the draft lottery will be shown live on Canadian television network TSN. At 4 p.m. ET on Friday, there will be a half hour show to see what ball emerges.

    The live viewing eliminates most of the possibility for conspiracy talk -- the idea that in some back room, the league leaned on the Board of Governors to decide it was in the best interest of the league and therefore all teams for Crosby to go to the Rangers.

    The Rangers, by the way, deserve their legitimate shot at Crosby by the nature of their terrible play and lack of success over the last few years. The Rangers, Penguins, Blue Jackets and Sabres each will have three balls each in the lottery, giving them better odds at Crosby. Ten teams (Mighty Ducks, Thrashers, Flames, Hurricanes, Blackhawks, Oilers, Kings, Wild, Predators and Coyotes) will have two balls each, and the remaining teams will each have one.

    Good work by the league to get this televised, even if there is no U.S. outlet for the show.

    That's not entirely true...

    They're going to show what team will pick where, starting at #30 up to #1, but the actual drawing of the balls will be backstage in a conference room with the team reps...

    NHL changes its mind: draft lottery made into live event Friday

    Pierre Lebrun
    Canadian Press

    Wednesday, July 20, 2005

    TORONTO (CP) - The Sidney Crosby sweepstakes will be on TV after all.

    It was confirmed Tuesday that the NHL draft lottery in New York will be televised Friday. But like the NBA, only the results of the draw will be shown. The actual drawing will take place away from the cameras. The original plan had been to hold the entire lottery behind closed doors during Friday's board of governors meeting, with commissioner Gary Bettman subsequently announcing the results at a news conference.

    Now hockey fans will get to see how it unfolds. The order of the draft will be unveiled, starting with the 30th pick and ending with the prized first.

    The event will be carried live on TV, starting at 4 p.m. EDT following the 1 p.m. board of governors meeting.

    "Given the fact that we have been without NHL hockey for a year and that we have a lottery system in order to select the draft order it was imperative in my opinion to have a live event," said Crosby's agent Pat Brisson. "It obviously helps having Sidney Crosby part of the mystery."

    The draft itself will be July 30 in Ottawa.

    The league has promised to come back after a 301-day lockout showing more accessibility, wanting to open up for fans and media. Given the hype surrounding the draft lottery, with hockey phenom Crosby the top prize, it makes sense to make the most of the moment.

    Crosby, the consensus No. 1 pick in the July 30 draft in Ottawa, will be hooked up to the Friday news conference via a satellite feed from his home town of Cole Harbour, N.S.

    The Buffalo Sabres, Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Rangers have the best mathematical shot at winning the lottery, with three balls each.

    The Anaheim Mighty Ducks, Atlanta Thrashers, Calgary Flames, Carolina Hurricanes, Chicago Blackhawks, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators and Phoenix Coyotes will have two balls each.

    The rest of the teams in the league will have one ball each.

    The NBA traditionally televises its draft lottery, but the show is actually 90 minutes after the actually drawing of the balls takes place in a conference room in the league's office in New Jersey.

    Every team has a representative in the conference room, and "once you go in, you have to give up your cellphone, the whole shebang," said NBA spokesman Tim Frank.

    The team representatives in the studio are unaware of the results until they are announced 90 minutes late on live television by the league's deputy commissioner Russ Granik.

    The actual drawing is conducted by the NBA's legal department.

    "Our event people do the drawing of the balls, they have a person with their back to the bin with a stopwatch that says, 'Now,' and then they draw four balls," said Frank. "That's how they make sure nobody's watching, to take away any of that suspicion, and then our lawyers are there to legitimize the decisions."

    Big Vote Coming:

    NHL Players Set to Vote on New Contract
    Thursday, July 21, 2005 10:35 AM EDT
    The Associated Press
    By IRA PODELL

    New York Islanders' Michael Peca walks through the lobby of a hotel in Toronto where the NHLPA will will meet later in the day, Wednesday July 20, 2005. The union will hold a two-day meeting so players can voice their opinions on the tentative deal that was reached last week with the NHL board of governors and then vote on it. (AP PHOTO/CP, Adrian Wyld)
    TORONTO (AP) The NHL players' association entered ratification mode Thursday morning, the last step before approving a tentative deal reached last week between the union and league.

    Talks went well into the night Wednesday, with players still milling about with each other well past 1 a.m. Just hours later, the approximate 225 players in attendance got together for a communal breakfast before resuming discussions at 8:30.

    The ratification meeting began around 10 a.m., and was due to wrap up following lunch.

    "Hopefully things are moving smoothly upstairs and we are able to get some good results and get back to work," St. Louis defenseman Chris Pronger said as he was leaving the hotel.

    Many players are unhappy that a full season was lost and the union ended up accepting a salary cap anyway. They came to Toronto to find out why, and look forward.

    Surely, many of the 700-plus players voiced displeasure over the deal after finally seeing it on paper. Those not in attendance will be able to vote via the Internet.

    "When this is done, we're all going to be on the same side I hope," St. Louis center Doug Weight said. "It's OK to have questions and it's OK to be heated about them. This is our livelihood, after all."

    If the deal passes, as expected, there will be no remaining obstacles in this labor war. The lockout will end soon after, and hockey talk will go back to which team is best instead of who came out ahead at the negotiating table.

    "For people to judge whether we won or lost this deal, I think is ridiculous," Carolina forward Jeff O'Neill said. "We all got in this together and then some guys started piping off and maybe showed a few cracks in us as a group. But we're still in this together now."

    The players' discussion of the collective bargaining agreement began in earnest around dinnertime Wednesday. Lots of information was exchanged before the vote that would determine the fate of next season.

    Fans who sought autographs in the hotel lobby from hockey stars they've missed for a year will have to wait a little bit longer for some good news.

    It looks as though it's coming.

    "We had to stand up for what we thought we could get and that's the nature of the business. Now we have to move on," Weight said.

    Players' association executive director Bob Goodenow took on the NHL and vowed not to take a salary cap or have player compensation linked to league-wide revenues.

    By all accounts, this deal contains both.

    "As far as I'm concerned, he's done what we asked him to do," O'Neill said. "He's led us and I think he's done the right things.

    "Maybe as a group we underestimated how strong the owners were going to be. But we were all behind Bob and we were all in this together."

    No doubt, the long night and day of internal talks brought out opposing opinions. That is what makes this meeting and vote so crucial and intriguing. It isn't even known if Goodenow will still be in charge of the union once the dust settles.

    Some of those entrusted to negotiate a deal for the players are fellow players that make up the executive committee headed by president Trevor Linden of the Vancouver Canucks.

    It might not be the deal they wanted, but this is the one that will get the league back in action.

    Hockey loyalty stretches beyond the 30 NHL rinks.

    "You're not going to please everyone all the time, it's going to be good for some and bad for others, but it's a deal we have to live with at this stage," Pronger said. "(The executive committee) has been locked in a room for the last 12 weeks hammering this down. They deserve a lot of credit for getting an agreement with the league."

    So all signs point to a ratification by the players. If that happens, commissioner Gary Bettman will join his adversary Goodenow at a podium in a Toronto hotel and announce that the NHL is back in business.

    The league's board of governors will hold a ratification vote Friday during a meeting in New York, but that ballot is really just a formality. Bettman was sent out by the owners to get "cost certainty" a hard salary cap tied to league revenues and he has it.

    That vote by the 30 teams is so much of a sure thing to pass that the league has already planned the televised draft lottery for Friday and an announcement on new rules changes for next season.

    But for now, the biggest change is in how teams pay their players. The union liked the deal that stood in place for 10 years, following the previous lockout, and Bettman and the owners made it their mission to overhaul the system.

    "I think it's unfair for guys to start to point the finger," New York Islanders forward Michael Peca said. "It is what it is. Any deal that we would have gotten was going to be significantly worse than the one we came off from.

    "We tried to go in a certain direction, and at a certain time the executive committee tried to make the best of the situation they were in. I think they did that. I think they did a nice job."

    Bettman's news conference Friday to announce the relaunch of the league won't have representatives from the players' association there, as the union will still be holding a meeting with agents to go over the CBA a document numbering 600 pages.

    Pending ratification, teams will have six days beginning Saturday to buy players out of their contracts to free cap space and nine days to negotiate with their unrestricted free agents.

    About 90% of the players have ratified this deal, that's great.

    How about Jeremy Roenick though.

    This dude has already said to the fans, "if you think we're spoiled, don't come to the games."

    Now he wants the NHL to "rig" the draft lottery so the RANGERS get the first shot at phenom Sidney Crosby.

    This guy's best playing years are far behind him, he's a walking injury now, and now he's drawing real negative attention for the league and his team.

    Penguins win lottery for top NHL draft pick
    New York, NY (Sports Network) - The Sidney Crosby sweepstakes were held Friday, and the Pittsburgh Penguins won the right to select the phenom at next Saturday's NHL Entry Draft in Ottawa.

    The Penguins were one of four teams with better odds in the slightly weighted draft drawing that gave all 30 teams a chance at securing the first- overall pick. The Blue Jackets, Rangers and Sabres were the other teams with the odds in their favor.

    Crosby is the most anticipated NHL draft prospect in several years. A star center for the Rimouski Oceanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Crosby tallied 120 goals and 183 assists in his last two years of junior hockey. This past season for the Oceanic he netted 66 goals and 102 assists in just 62 games.

    Crosby has already cashed in on his fame before being selected by an NHL club. In March he inked a multi-year, multi-million dollar endorsement deal with Reebok.

    The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim will select second with Carolina, Minnesota, Montreal, Columbus, Chicago, Atlanta, Ottawa and Vancouver rounding out the top 10.

    The Los Angeles Kings own the 11th pick with San Jose, Buffalo, Washington and the New York Islanders completing the top 15. The New York Rangers have the 16th pick followed by Phoenix, Nashville, Detroit and Philadelphia.

    Toronto has the 21st pick followed by Boston, New Jersey and St. Louis.

    Edmonton will pick 25th followed by Calgary, Colorado, Dallas, Florida. The defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning will be last.

    I doubt they'll "suck", that's just jealous humor Bugger...

    I mean let's be realistic, they're not printing Stanley Cup final tickets just yet...

    But the Pens were smart the last two years before the lockout, they purposely got rid of the big contracts so they would be in a position to sign bigger names and lower prices when the new CBA came...

    So guys like Kovalev and Lang may very well be coming back to the 'Burgh, but this time at a much lower prices...

    Also, look for Zhamnov and Niedermayer to be signed as well...

    In addition, don't forget that there is tentative new ownership, and that equals new money to sign new players...

    But that 1st line of Lemieux, Crosby, and Recchi doesn't sound too bad, does it ???

    I'm still absolutely fucking shocked, I can't believe they were lucky enough to win the lottery...

    I've been watching the Pittsburgh shows tonight, as well as the websites, and the town is buzzing...

    I almost didn't get to see the drawing...

    I listened to picks 30-20 in the car on XM Radio...

    Ran inside, and right then a storm was coming over the house, and my fookin' satellite lost the signal for a few minutes...

    Came back on, they were down to the final 10...

    So I'm thinking now, "well, it'll be a good player, but no way we get #1"...

    Top 5...

    Top 2...

    HOLY SHIT !!!!

    Gotta see what the new schedules look like now for some road trips !!!!

    Yeah, but then you listen to selfish Canadians like Bob McKenzie, who said something along the lines of "if Crosby goes to a big market team like the Rangers or the Leafs it'll be great for the NHL, but if a small market team (mentions the Penguins and other teams) get him "somehow, it will be bad for hockey"

    I've always loved the Canadians passion for hockey, but sometimes they think the hockey world revolves around them...

    If that was the case, there'd be more than 6 Canadian teams in the NHL....

    I hear ya Bug, that comment really irritated me....

    I'm still in shock....

    Just thinking about the ramifications....

    And don't forget Malkin from last year !!!!

    The NHL signed a deal with the IHF yesterday, which should facilitate getting Malkin signed and over to the 'Burgh from Russia....

    Wow, Lemieux, Crosby, and Malkin as your 1st 3 lines at center...

    I'll take that...

    Flyers buy out LeClair and Amonte

    Associated Press

    7/23/2005 11:40:32 AM

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers are buying out the contracts of forwards John LeClair and Tony Amonte.

    The buyouts will be announced at a news conference scheduled for Saturday morning, team spokesman Zach Hill said.

    The 36-year-old LeClair spent 10 years with the Flyers, and was a member of the famed "Legion of Doom'' line with Eric Lindros and Mikael Renberg in the mid-1990s. He tallied 382 goals and 379 assists overall in the regular season in his career with the Flyers and the Montreal Canadiens; he had 42 goals and 47 assists in the playoffs.

    LeClair, who entered the lockout due $9 million US this season, was to make $6.84 million after the leaguewide 24 per cent pay cut.

    Amonte, who started the lockout at about $5.61 million, was due $4.26 million. In 14 seasons with New York, Chicago, Phoenix and Philadelphia, Amonte tallied 392 goals and 436 assists in the regular season; he had 20 goals and 31 assists in 86 playoff games.

    The buyouts will give the Flyers room to make qualifying offers to restricted free agents and begin negotiations with unsigned rookies.

    Things are looking good so far getting Malkin...

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story.asp...17&hubName=nhl

    Penguins eager to add Malkin to the mix

    Associated Press

    7/24/2005 3:41:46 PM

    PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will know long before the start of training camp in September if 2004 first-round draft pick Evgeni Malkin will join an ever-growing lineup of scorers that will soon include Sidney Crosby.

    Penguins general manager Craig Patrick has already talked to one of Malkin's agents, Pat Brisson, about signing the 18-year-old center for the 2005-06 season. Brisson also represents Crosby, which could be a plus for the Penguins.

    With Malkin's agents also handling the 17-year-old Crosby, the Canadian super prospect who will be drafted No. 1 Saturday by the Penguins, it's likely they will push Malkin to sign with Pittsburgh so the two teens can start playing together and learning each other's games.

    If that happens, it's conceivable the Penguins could open the season Oct. 5 with Crosby centering a top line that also includes player-owner Mario Lemieux and Mark Recchi, and Malkin centering their second line.

    "We'd like to get him over here. ... We expect to have some dialogue over the next few days" with Malkin's agents, Patrick said. "We want to get him here as soon as we can."

    Malkin, last year's No. 2 pick behind Russian forward Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals, is signed to a multi-year contract with his hometown Mettalurg Magnitogorsk of Russian's top pro league.

    Malkin was the team's third-leading scorer last year, in a relatively low-scoring league, with 12 goals and 20 assists in 52 games.

    "Based on what Malkin did last year, he's definitely ready," for the NHL, Patrick said.

    Until now, the labour impasse that shut down the 2004-05 season and the expired transfer agreement between the NHL and the International Ice Hockey Federation has prevented the Penguins from attempting to sign Malkin.

    The international agreement sets parameters under which a player's European team is compensated when that player signs with an NHL team. There was speculation Russian teams would not be part of any new deal and would seek higher transfer fees - in Malkin's case, perhaps as much as $2 million.

    As reported on Saturday, a new transfer deal has been reached that gives NHL teams until Aug. 15 to sign players for this season, even those currently under contract in Europe.

    Thus, the Penguins would have until then to sign Malkin, or he would play at least another season in Russia. The Penguins must sign Malkin by June 1, 2008, or relinquish his NHL rights.

    Malkin's Russian contract is worth $1.3 million tax-free, and he could make more than that in Pittsburgh with performance bonuses. Under the new NHL labour agreement, Malkin can make as much as $984,200 in base salary next season, plus a signing bonus of slightly less than $300,000. But he could make several million dollars more in performance bonuses.

    More incentive for Malkin: Lemieux has all but said the Penguins will add at least one more high-profile forward during the free agent signing period that begins Sunday.

    They currently have seven players signed to contracts worth about $5.5 million. Even after determining how much Lemieux will make, and reaching terms with their restricted free agents - including Ryan Malone, Konstantin Koltsov, Dick Tarnstrom and Brooks Orpik - they figure to have about $12 million to $15 million available to sign players.

    With owner-in-waiting William "Boots" Del Biaggio planning to increase the payroll by $10 million or $11 million from the approximately $20 million when they last played, the Penguins figure to be in the mid-range of NHL payrolls. They were at the bottom during the 2003-04 season.

    No doubt, they need to add a veteran D-man (or two)....

    They've got a few real good youngsters back there, like Brooks Orpik, who's becoming a helluva hitter, and Ryan Whitney, who played great in minors this year....

    As I said before, they're targeting Scott Neidermayer from the Devils....

    Even if they don't get him, the way it's starting to look, there will be many others available....
