It's very well known around the league that Johnson and Maatta are/were available...him saying little bochinche on some podunk radio station has absolutely zero effect. Zip.

I get that, but their neck is on the line. A trade with Philly might be in the best interest of the team, but if it doesn't pan out, I might not see another GM offer ever. I think that you are putting far too much value in the division thing. A trade with Philadelphia failing or succeeding has the ...

Simple answer: what if you're wrong (or in this case, guaranteed to be trading the best player in the deal) and he beats the wheels off you in a playoff series. It's one thing to fool a guy into taking Luca Sbisa...it's another talking about Kessel... The Washington/Philly trade was the first time N...

Steal for NYR...kept the receipt on Hayes basically... It's from Larry Brooks so who knows the validity, but the Jets apparently nuked themselves on trading Trouba by not allowing his camp to talk to interested teams about an extension. Even so, and I know he's a problem to negotiate with, but that...

I think there's two reasonable angles for it... Angle one: There are legitimate, low-level, "quiet" markets where he would want to go or where there is a relationship...so we're talking teams like Arizona, Colorado, St. Louis (maybe no longer), Dallas, Florida, Carolina...teams like that, right?

The deal was Kessel and Johnson for Zucker, Rask and a 3rd. Yes, Jugs is/are soft...I don't necessarily think he would drag down a line because he can shoot...if he's just a big finisher, but offers nothing else, well, that's not worst thing in the world. But I'd want 20 ES goal from him...which mi...

I can kind of get the sense of who they are talking about on a couple of those players...that doesn't mean they like them or dislike them... Tommy Westlund was probably talking about Anttoni Honka regarding defensive play...I think Andy Chiodo is talking about Isaiah Saville...Luc Gauthier is probab...

I think it's fair to assume that he's worth another questionable contract...I think if we went to Minnesota and offered him straight up for Victor Rask, I think they'd do that...this is where pro scouting really comes into play (yes, the same pro scouts that may have recommended Jack in the first pl...

See I don't think it's worth 21 to move JJ out. The cap hit is just too low to warrant that.

The cap hit of buying him out is peanuts...if we were really desperate, that's an easy play.

Trading 21, where we could get a legit first rounder to fall to us, would be a horrific move...
