Signing at minimum allows their new team to acquire more depth. Adding all of the above for a combined 7 million cap hit? Or even 2 or three of them (Sedins + Vanek = 100 goals for <$2mil combined)? These players are already set for life, one season making "only" a half million won't kill them, but will drastically improve their chances

It's a one year deal. Detroit is under the Cap and offered him the deal. Also, the NHLPA is not a big proponent of contract like that. They can affect the rates that other players can command if brought to arbitration. Even Mario Lemieux had to pay himself the league average when he came back and he owned the team.

Anywhere I can. Gamecentre, online streams, anywhere I can. I'm not a fan of Setanta and they are a last resort, if another supplier came in with a decent package and good presenters I'd probably go for it.

Setanta is 20 a month with bbc not part of the sub. I only need hockey not into any other sport they show

It's perfect if you've the internet connection and set-up to enjoy it, yes.

PS - Teemu Selanne signed for another year with the Ducks today. 43 years young.

When I met him in Stockholm in 2011 I thought it was going to be his last season, so who knows.

One pretty big thing to take into account is where you are.

I presume you're in Ireland, and as such won't have an issue, but it's a pain in the hoop when you live in the blackout area of your team. No Canucks games when I was living in Vancouver, for example. Definitely not home ones, and I think there was some limitation on road games.
