"do you still have the iphone?" "No" "Why not?" "Because you decided to come at 5pm... instead of 9am like I told you to... they're sold out".... starts throwing a fit....
Thats the sum of my day.... from 2pm untill 9pm.... person after person... for seven straight hours. Not even enough time to take a break to eat, muchless check the trusty HTC touch for updates, and definatly not enough time to update the blog.... I guess thems the life of a working, student/hockey writer.
Kudos to JC over at SensChirp for breaking the Williams deal. And again, Kevin Lee follows up on his coatails leaching information lol. God I love hockeybuzz.
So here's the lowdown... Williams deal will be announced tomorrow afternoon, either a 12 noon or 3pm. Press Release to be issued tomorrow morning at 8am.
The speculated deal is as follows. 3 years, 5.75 million. (or 1.9 per anum)
This leaves the senators with the following cap space available: 7.774Million.
Assuming a buffer of one million, the Sens have 6.5 in avail space.
Mezzy will be resigned, but earlier texts, (like from 4pm-7pm) tell me that Murray was working the phones quite vividly to get a deal done to trade Vermette PER HIS REQUEST. Hence the Williams signing.... Remember that 10 teams had previously enquired about the forward.... one being Chicago.
I'll dig more into it.
