Contrary to popular belief, teams and players don't want to get into screaming matches about how much the other side sucks. Arbitration is a tough and gruesome process, and with speculation that the bickering has hit "broken beyond repair" status, it's probably best for James Reimer and the Toronto Maple Leafs to find a way to split the difference.

They did just that today, agreeing to a 2 year, 4.6 million dollar deal with an AAV of $2.3 million.

If Mike Babcock makes it to next summer without a new contract from the Red Wings, the list of teams who would want to acquire his services could probably be the other 29. Realistically, there are likely only a few that would dish out the cash that Babcock is seeking. Of course a few million dollars is nothing for an NHL team to spend, or often times waste, but some teams are in more desperate need of a turn-around than others. 

Regarded as arguably the best coach on the planet, Babcock is set to make $2 million this upcoming season in Detroit - the last of his current deal - and what he's looking for beyond that is anyone's guess, but the Wings haven't hit that number yet, or he'd be locked up.

At about 5:45 AM this morning, the wheels touched down on a plane headed from Vancouver to Toronto. Out of that plane, came a tired individual who many believe should shut up. Yes, I'm back at home as of this morning, and yes, you'll get your silence soon; I think I'm going to take a bit of time off in the near future. But for now, there's a bunch of questions in my inbox that people appear to want answered, so lets have at it.
