Minimum wage can increase as much as anyone wants and it will never be enough money to give someone a good quality of life.  As min wage increasese so does all other wages and thus the prices of all goods also increase leading to min wage not being enough to live off.  It's a viscious cycle that only gets better with moving yourself above the min wage job market.

Feels pretty wierd getting ready to go to this game when it is 35 degrees outside!!!  Expect to see a lot of Jets fans today which is exactly like every other Coyotes home game!!!
I have suggested this before and still believe it would be a solution to the "goon" issue, all players must play a minimum amount of time in the game.  Say you atrt with 10 minutes and adjust as needed.  Teams could not afford to have a player who can't "play".  There would obviously have to be allowances for things such as injury, benching and such while would be minitored for legitimacy by league.  This would be a work in progress rule that can be tweaked.
Just reading Boudreau's book and he speaks very highly of Steckel numerous times and had high expectations for him in NHL. 
No suspension for Malone which makes the Mac suspension even more suspect.

The devils are on the verge of bankruptcy and you think they may deal for a player who is demanding over $7 million per year.

Anyone have an scalper experience?  Do they go for more or less than EBay and StubHub or is it a hit and miss thing???  I assume there won't be many on the street for opening night??  FYI I pay $3600 for 2 season tics behind net in Phoenix!!!!

I will be in Toronto for opener on Oct 6th.  What should I expect to pay for lower level seats on EBay or scalpers?  Will be looking for 2 seats and like to sit behind net.
Will you feel the same about Winnipeg doing it almost 2 decades later?

It's still very funny the way the modern Senators pretend that they're in any way associated with an entirely different franchise of the same name from nearly a century ago.

Is this the first time a team has signed a player that they have previously bought out?  Kinda wierd!!!
