    Elliotte, that was a great story about going to school with Nedomansky’s son
    I would see Big Ned at Wings games when he was a scout

    Backes gets paid $4M each of the next two years when his cap hit is $6M per, so taking him on is slightly less of a burden. The cash would be even less if the Bruins were on the hook for this year's payment of Backe's signing bonus ($3M). (I think I am reading his contract right. His signing bonus is being paid yearly over the length of his contract.)

    The most common comparison of Carbonneau is with Bob Gainey. Gainey thinks Carbonneau deserves it. I do too.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it … didn't Carbonneau marry one of Bob and the late Cathy Gainey's daughters? Could be wrong, but that sticks in my head for some reason.

    They have good hot dogs in Arizona. Phil should fit in there just fine.
