did Tampa not shop him anywhere else? I have a hard time believing they couldn't get a .50 PPG pending UFA and two draft picks for him from nearly every other team

 

St Louis had a NMC. Maybe he only wanted to go to NY?

If Tampa is smart they are looking to unload Callahan now.   He is made of papermache and will increasingly show diminishing returns.

 

Its a pretty big IF.

So Washington, Philly, NYR made moves to get better. I think Lou really has to do something here

 

With all the garbage Sather gets for being "him" and pro-active, he's fleeced his share of teams, too. 

 

Lamoriello also does not have the organizational assets. You have to give to get and you have to have to get. The Rangers roster was set up for this type of impact deal. But it also shows that you can be a Cup contender/playoff team AND trade a upcoming FA and get better.

Well I guess the thinking is that the 1st and 2nd offset the difference in player between Callahan and St. Louis while still allowing the Lightning to try and win this year

St.Louis to NYR makes them a threat now.

This should lead to a Tampa a losing tailspin. Good for us.


Why would Tampa losing and the Rangers winning be good for us? We're a lot closer to the Rangers in the standings.

I will say though, it appears as if the Rangers make the ECF, that 2nd this year turns into another 1st. So it's possible if the Rangers win two rounds this becomes a 1st in 2014 and 2015 for MSL

 

So it would be the number 26 pick in a weak draft and a who knows pick next year in what they say is a top heavy draft.

 

If you want the Rangers to lose out in this deal, everything that you can imagine has to go wrong for them next year.

To be fair, St. Louis only wanted to go to one team and forced Yzerman's hand.  He still got back a decent haul all things considering

i guess there was discussion about this being a 3 way trade cause tampa were not that interested in Callahan but we'll see. Kind of a risky move to make that trade if you dont want him and without having a next move

well for one, Lundqvist save % is already way down from his career norms.

I'm saying Hindenberg wrong.  Lunqvist basically has to turn into Marty next year, they would have to have no reliable back up, they would have to have at least two defensemen as well as Nash miss major time, and St. Louis' production would have to fall off a cliff.

Better question. Why did Steve Yzerman lose his balls and let this baby dictate to him? This whole thing makes Yzerman look bad. Should have laughed in his face, told him to grow up or go home and then inform ownership and have them both laugh.

I think Tampa will take a nose dive, which is why I said this was good for us.

Tampa is a good team and they are getting stamkos back, don't think it's a given they fall off.

I think Tampa is in for a rude awakening.   St. Louis made Levcaviliar and Stamkos look great.   Tampa is going to struggle to win the rest of the season.

Also, as expected St. Louis took multiple high picks to be moved. I don't have time to scroll through the thread but can any of our prospect guys reiterate the value of those picks based on the draft classes and whether they think the NYR overpaid? I mean, they get St. Louis for a season and a half.
