More to his point, none of that happened overnight. That's been the story since the start of the season.

Columbus may be looking to unload Gaborik, but I can't see them trading him to a team that is neck and neck with them in the standings.

Looking at all the talks with upcoming UFAs that will make it or break it if they are traded or not. I absolutely can't believe why i get rip when im saying that Lou should not refuse to at least talk during the season/before the deadline with "some" players. It's simply common sense.

Because you bring it up constantly every time someone gets signed or almost gets signed.

Huh, you know that didn't even occur to me.  Still haven't mentally adjusted to the new divisions I guess.  So that almost completely eliminates us from the Gaborik sweepstakes, assuming Lou won't trade within the division.

 

Womp womp.

Cammelleri is the type of garbage Lou would pick up.

#Isles have traded Andrew MacDonald to the Flyers. More to come.

 

Arthur Staple @StapeNewsday 31s

#Isles get 2014 3rd rounder and a 2015 2nd rounder for MacDonald from the Flyers.

 

As long as Wang and Snow are calling the shots at the Nassau Mauseleum, we don't have to worry about them.  I would take Grabner or Okposo off their hands though...

Well if MacDonald is worth a 2nd and 3rd, Zid's worth at least that much.

It's not protecting his actions. It's understanding his actions.

Deciding for absolutely no reason other than "its a distraction" to refuse to talk contract during the season no matter what the situation is, is not the right thing to do. Plain and simple.

Maybe that's just what he tells TG and others to keep the heat off his players while he actually performs contract negotiations.  Look at the circus the Callahan contract has become over in NY.. you think that's not a distraction to the players and organization?

Point is:  Neither you nor I actually knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Cool. But it's the way he's very successfully run a team for 25 years. People have pointed out countless times that your broad stroke ideas of 'talking to people' makes no sense when your goal is to put your best team on the ice for a playoff run. What David Clarkson says about a contract in January means nothing if you want him on the team in April.
