Love that we had to pay folks to take our unwanted "D" goods in Colin White - yet PIT actually gets assets for theirs.

Some of you seem to think Zach Parise is Gretzky reincarnated in a smaller body.

If he goes, he goes, if he wants to be #3 on the priority list in PIT who cares?


Colin White hasnt done anything since he left. I dont think theres correlation there. We got him off the salary cap and that was a win I believe.

I agree about Zach. Ive prepped for him to leave all year and I dont think hes worth 8 million a year. Kovy is a better player and we have Henrique.

Colin White was 33 when he was released, Zbynek Michalek was 29 when he got traded. There's your difference.

We are STILL paying Colin White this year - he didn't come off the cap.
That's my point.

He counts 1 mil compared to dead weight at 3 and freed up the roster spot. We got better without him. Its small potatoes.

Its not small potatoes when you are in debt. The checks are still being cashed.

Would you rather be sittign here with Colin White on the roster and being owed 3 million? We lopped off 2 million and got him off the team. I dont see what you're complaining about. Its small potatoes. If we were still paying him 3, Id agree.

I agree it was the right move - hell I wanted him off the team 2 years ago.
I just find it amazing how some teams can move dead assets and still get something back.
... and yes I do understand the difference between Mick and White.

I get you here. The Malakhov move is more perplexing in this respect. But in ref to this, Michalek is/was not a dead asset. Hes younger and has both eyes, plus he contributed and played 20+ mins a game. Michalek also had a NTC. White was waived because no one wanted him.

He seems like a good kid, and I will not judge Lou or Conte, but he just better turn out.

the devils are not a trade match for anaheim in any way. unless larsson or henrique are going the other way and that just doesn't make sense at this juncture.

Well i am watching a live TSN feed , and for some reason we never went to adverts, and i got to watch all the pannelists talk candidly about tonights draft.

Interesting things i heard, someone said that the switch off after the 12th pick.

James Dutihie had some pretty, shall we say, "interesting" things to say, the best was when said the Jordan Staal trade saved the whole evening, otherwise it would have been terrible.

And I heard Pierre say he spoke to Ray Shero and he said that the yandel deal was "complete Bull $hit".

It was pretty funny, watching them prep for the show to restart. It was like


That's pretty funny. That sometimes happens to me when I stream things live. Anything else noteworthy during the breaks?

As for anyone complaining about the Devils drafting Matteau's kid...give me a break. Who cares who is father is.

It was only happening after the last pick.

It was difficult to make out at times as he wasn't always holding his mic.

He was defiantly making off camera comments. He made it pretty clear he was bored .

Maybe Lou will now try to trade up for a spot early in the 2nd to grab Collberg or Frk.

Dansk was first pick of 2nd round by the BJ's. Surprising since they traded for Bobrovsky, but hey.

Smart pick though. Dansk will have time to develop and hopefully bobrovsky will be able to play often enough that Columbus can spot start mason and bring his confidence up.

Frk going to red wings guarantees that he will score 50 goals! Seems like their picks always pay off! And no I didn't do research, i just feel like when Detroit makes a pick, they know something the rest of the league doesn't haha
