Case of the Mondays

Some random ramblings as I browse through the Monday morning news and try to drag my butt to my 8-to-4.


In Carolina, the Hurricanes retired Ron Francis' no. 10 jersey in a simple but classy ceremony. Very Ron Francis-like. Red and Black Hockey and Sweet Tea, Barbeque and Bodychecks reflect on the occassion as well as Francis' career.


Eric McErlain analyzes Roberto Luongo turning down the Panthers' five-year/$30 million contract offer. I mistakenly thought that Luongo would be an unrestricted free agent after this season. As Eric points out, this won't happen until the end of the 2006/2007 season.

Gilles Lupien, who represents Luongo, said Luongo wants a shorter deal than the offer the Panthers made earlier this month.
Anyone wanna bet that by shorter he means until the end of the 2006/2007 season?


Al Strachan has this interesting tidbit in the Toronto Sun:

The New York Islanders are looking to move a few miles to upscale Suffolk County. The team won't go far because of an astonishingly lucrative TV deal that pays the team $13-$15 million annually and stretches approximately until the starship Enterprise comes back.
Assuming this deal includes every single Islanders regular season game and every possible playoff game (four home games x four rounds), that comes up to at least $228,000 per game. And that's in US dollars.

Almost makes the supposed $250,000 per game the Canucks are asking from Sportsnet seem like a steal.


The NHL on NBC's TV numbers took a big dip - from a 1.5% to a 1.1% rating - on its second week. Is it possible this is because viewers couldn't find the sexy hockey player hunk in the commercials?
