    I know, hence my comment.

    I've been to OG for the first time last year. I've had worse, it's ok.

    I haven’t had much worse. It’s pretty awful.

    It will be about term and trade clauses . They will get 4-5 years and significant reductions in clauses handed out .

    You can't have your top players all run the asylum .

    No need to go after guarantee contracts these 2 tweaks is all you need.

    Those signing bonuses in the NFL are great if your a good player who earned it . Slugs like Alzner and 200 other players would be cut in a second in an NFL structure payout system and would be lucky to be employed again .

    The second your deemed expendable due to poor play , decline , or a douche in the dressing room your gonzo in the NFL when that 4rth rounder making 300k is 5x cheaper than you .

    You don't need radical changes .....shorter terms and trade clause reductions is all the the new CBA needs.

    Players will still kiss the ice they are playing on when 95% of the players have nowhere to go to make millions .

    The issue is how many old declining players can you have making big money in 4 years.

    Alzner, Price, Weber, Lucic...then you need to sign your hopefully currently young/undrafted stars.

    Now if you plan is to suck hard for 4-5 years okay. Lets look at what we can get for Price and Weber.

    I am not worried about Lucic's contract in year 1 or 2...it is from 3-5 i worry.
    Which is why edmonton wants him gone...they are hoping to contend now.
    If we didn't have a lame-duck GM, obtaining a player like Lucic (and his contract) would really depend on what exactly the rebuild strategy is with that GM. However, this is still MB's team......

    MB may very well think that a player like Lucic is good enough to help them get back to the playoffs next season. I don't think MB really cares about anything beyond the upcoming season.

    As has been said, what is an inch, if he says he is 5'10, then it is no different from 5'9 and not much different from 5'8...

    I would be more concerned if he was 150 pounds

    Krug , Mete, Spurgeon maybe small can handle themselves at 170 plus pounds

    If we draft Hughes lets see when he shakes Pipe`s hand who is no bigger than 5`8"

    The world would be better if Krug was punched in the face more often. However, is he not basically a power play specialist?
