The ugly concepts include the suggestion that the NHLPA should just go along with the hiring of Ted Saskin without a full review of the CBA debacle. The ugliest free-agent signing was the Rangers' addition of Marek Malik for three years at $2.5M per. The ugliest situations will take place in Detroit, where the marquee Red Wings will capsize; in Toronto, where the marquee Maple Leafs will be very bad; in Colorado, where the fans will have to begin to settle for less. The ugly teams will include the Rangers; the Caps, who have given up; the Hurricanes; and the Blues.
