interesting lou said that he was in other trade discussions, but didn't want to sacrifice the future.  perhaps an indication that he inquired into pominville and buffalo was asking too much

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

And got too much.  But boy, Minnesota is starting to worry me now regardless.

To try to equate it to our prospects.... Boucher, Wedgewood 1st + 2nd. The difference between us and Minnesota is that they have more to spare like Granlund, Coyle, Zucker, etc.

But if one is fixated on the Minnesota Parise's and how they measure up against the Devils moving forward....and maybe Parise actually making a good hockey decision too, one could be worried.

Because they've been perennial losers.

C'mon. You can't tell me you don't want to see the Wild and/or Parise to fall flat on their face

Or I just don't want Parise's team to do well, irrespective of where the Devils are as a team :P

It would be nice but I don't really care either way.  I'd prefer if he didn't win a Stanley Cup there, and actually I think this is a decent move in that direction (I don't think the Wild are that good right now, and they gave up quite a bit for Pominville and are in cap trouble next year)

Welcome back to Sully, I've always liked him. Can anyone give me some insight on the guys the Rags got for Gaborik? Not familiar with them really. Hoping they suck.

How do we now have 5 lines of forwards, not even counting Barch and Popodopolous?  I doubt we see Teddy or Josefson back up this season, which still leaves us with too many forwards.  And it doesn't even begin to take into account the cluster F on defense.

 

Lou is like those extreme coupon shoppers this season...they will buy anything in bulk so long as it's cheap, regardless of the fact that they can't possibly use 123,000 boxes of Ajax in their lifetime.

Chere said the Devils are going to call Josefson up, we'll see if he's correct.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

they wont have a huge cap trouble next year but they'll have to make decisions, they'll likely buy out Heatley and let a few UFA walk but they can afford it with their prospects

Dorset is just a fighter who likes to see over 200 min a season. Brassard is pretty decent offensively. Columbus is pretty good before this and they continue to get Beter, they have a big fan base and those fans deserve it

Sometimes GMs have to fight to live another day. Caps can still win the division, and if so, probably have a solid chance against Ottawa or Toronto. Just get in and you have a chance. But they need to get in, and McPhee has to get in to keep his job at the very least.

 

The question is...couldn't you have gotten more than Erat for Forsberg?
