    That crap is a plague among us men. My father was diagnosed nearly 20 years ago and will probably die of something else (he's 90), but man, what a torment, treatments,psychological impacts,etc.

    They say that if you live long enough you are guaranteed to get prostate cancer (men only of course) but often you die from something else before it gets you. Man wasn't designed to spend so much of his life sitting on his keester apparently.

    I dunno man. Benn has received some serious love around here in the recent past.

    And Emelin didn't get much. There wasn't much protest around here when Emelin was left unprotected and then selected. I think there was more desire to see Beaulieu protected instead of Benn.

    I read a study once where they looked at autopsies of men over 70 (who died of something else) and about 33% of caucasian men had the cancer. The rate was even higher with African Americans-- about 50%.

    Now they can screen it earlier with PSA, but that brings it's own dilemma - do you go through all the disruptive surgery/chemo for something that may never grow fast enough to kill you?

    I think it's easy to say now. Emelin last year was far from playing great, he was even sent to the press box a few games. Benn on the other end was playing amazing hockey and cost a fraction of Emelin's salary. Everyone would have done the same and not protect Emelin. Worst case, for salary cap reason only, it was a sound decision. If Emelin was still playing here, you would all be bitching about him just like last year. Players are always shit here and look amazing elsewhere when you don't follow them as much.

    I was one of the few here that actually liked Emelin (I think Habsy was another) and I understood not protecting him. The cap saving alone was worth it going in the off-season but I didn't know at the time that we would have 8M in cap space this season.

    I hear what you're saying, but Been has never played amazing hockey. That's a little dramatic.

    With that said; Emelin obviously benefits from playing with Subban.

    The Ducks have signed Andrew Cogliano to a three-year, $9.75 million extension... $3.25M AAV.

    He currently has a $3.0M AAV.

    who needs Emelin when you can overpay for Alzner instead?
