Freddie Black (Neil's son) has just tweeted in reply- "Nottingham had 2 players who wanted to come together & was looking good until we were told insurance would cost $104,000!! #bye"
Judging by that though they would be pretty handy players at that insurance cost, as apparently insurance firms are quoting £10,000 - 25000 per million of a contract.
So if you take the middle ground of £15000 to insure each player per million of contract, your not looking at a Shawn Thornton or other 4th line grinders but two players with a fair amount of quality. (Well enough quality to be worth about $6 million between them over their remaining contracts)
and where i have i metnioned anything postive or negative on this thread ?
just that i have heard a rumour about signings , when announced then i shall comment on wether its good or bad .
i commented on your signing as i thought you would get rid of someone , but as it happens you have injuries so cant afford to so its worked out ok for you . any nhl player coming to these shores i think is great , i just hpe teams have plans for when they return simple.
