Just want to brag for a moment that Matt Carle is back in Hockey Bay...

With a ridiculous overpayment to boot.
I didn't know that about Stafford's past, but in light of what you said, it certainly looks like he truly wanted to play for Detroit. So, he came into the draft as a junior? In any case, Detroit has a very good QB in him, and it's always much easier to build a team for success when you have a franchise QB to build the team around.
Speaking of over-paying, Jagr got $4.55 mil from Dallas.

... I like Jagr, but that's a bit steep unless you're just looking for a ticket draw ... watching him burn out in the playoffs is kind of the level of play I'm thinking you can expect from him in the future.
