I think he could be successful on a line with Zubrus and Elias. I don't see any other practical and realistic UFAs out there

 

Maybe. 

 

But is the point to be just throwing names against a wall?  What's the point.  A player has to fit and provide something.  Boyes has been passed around a bit now the last few years.  Huge red flag to me.  We need quality and productivity of forwards, not quantity of forwards.

 

And you can bet Boyes is going to try and turn his year with Tavares into a higher payday than he'd probably normally see or deserve.

He didn't look like no elite player last season. Jagr made him what he was two seasons ago. Id take Claude but he over hyped

 

i wouldnt say jagr made him that at all.  Giroux is really fvcking good. Just have to watch him play and you know

Yeah he wasn't as good last season as he was alongside jagr. Mistake losing jagr he helped claude dearly. He fell since jagr left. Im not saying he isn't good no. He is but jagr helped him be that worlds elite player.

Boyes isn't a name I threw out there. I based that on affordability and ability to produce. Granted, Boyes played with Tavares, but he played on an anemic Buffalo squad and he put up solid numbers on a STL team that wasn't exactly playoff bound.

Claude Giroux will sign an 8 year extension worth 66.4 Million 8.3 AAV per Dreger 

 

"@Real_ESPNLeBrun. Just ironing out a few wrinkles and it will be announced within a day or 2. Sources suggest closer to $8.3 per." https://twitter.com/...er/with_replies

 

Also apparently we are running third in the Briere sweeps per Eric Engles "No decision from Briere likely to come before tonight. #habs #devils #preds. Seems #habs and #preds are more likely destinations than NJ." https://twitter.com/EricEngels

Huge trade in the works. Boston and Dallas close on a deal sending Tyler Seguin to Stars for Loui Eriksson. Other parts involved as well.

bc we have nothing close to Eriksson to offer? 

 

I'd just keep Seguin if I was Boston. Trading a 20 year old bc they party too much is the definition of a lack of foresight. At least they're not gonna trade him for a first round pick which would've been the height of stupidity and if this goes through they're getting a really good player back even t hough he's 7 years older and Seguin's best season's almost as good as Eriksson's already

Seguin was a pipe dream that I really wished could of happened.

I thought he wanted to stay in the area? There goes that reason.

Since Henrique is a RFA I asked TG about his status and if there has been any progress.

@TGfireandice What is the status on Adam Henrique? Has there been any talks on a new contract for him?

He sent me the following answer as a direct message via Twitter:

Tom Gulitti ‏@TGfireandice
some. Started earlier this week.

Єklund (2.3% accurate) says NJ is a possible destination for NJ. So I guess we're not.

Hasn't Єklund (2.3% accurate) been spot on for a few rumors lately?

Per Lebrun : "NJ and Montreal were among several suitors for Ryane Clowe. Told Habs are out now. Devils very interested in Clowe."

I'm sure he's been pretty accurate lately. Like I imagine he's been spot on with his predictions about what he'll have for lunch for at least 5 days. He's about 50% accurate with his predictions about whether the sun will come up tomorrow or not. I'm not taking that away from him.
