08:31 AM ET 08.02 | Stalling is just one negotiating tactic, and fans shouldn't be surprised that Evander Kane's representatives are using it in Winnipeg. But with the current collective bargaining agreement about to expire and players of Kane's status in the line of fire, the Jets will most likely be unwilling to flinch. ... Kane will be eligible for unrestricted free agency in four years at the age of 24 according to the current agreement (seven years service or age 27 whichever comes first). But ownership wants that to change. So what will be available to Kane and other players coming out of their entry-level contracts after September 15 is an unknown. History would indicate it will be a tougher atmosphere for such players.

Speaking of Burkie, have you seen where 8 women were throw out of the Olympics for not trying hard enough in badminton?

The IOC became suspicious as they were all wearing Leafs sweaters.

And maybe cuz the unemployment/underemployment rate for young people is approaching 50%.

OK, I can take most of the cheap shots at my beloved Leafs, but this is just dumb.

The Leafs' lack skill, not desire.

Now if you want to make a Semin thread out of 8 female badminton players, I am totally with ya!

GMs beware! If you've learned anything its that you should lock up talent before they get a sniff of free agency. Ask Poile or Lou L, they'll tell you.

And let's also ask Gillis (Booby Loo), Snow (Rickety), and Slats (Gomez).

Although in Glen's defense he was able to pawn off Gomez onto a none too savy team.
