from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
The great panacea that was a more liberalized version of free agency hasn’t worked out that way for most of the National Hockey League’s big spenders.
In fact, a whopping majority of long-term, big money free-agent contracts signed after the NHL lockout have turned out to be gigantic wastes of money.
If teams could do it all over again, would they be throwing large money at Adrian Aucoin, Adam Foote, Mike Rathje or Alexei Zhamnov?...
Mike Keenan may not be perfect, but give him a great forward, a pair of great defencemen and top-flight goalie, as he has in Calgary, and watch him ride the Flames to great success. This is his kind of team.
many more NHL bits…
