Hopefully Stevens stays with our organization, perhaps at the AHL-level...

I'd like to take this moment to reiterate my appreciation of the Tampa Bay Lightning for defeating the Rangers

I get at least one more year of wearing my 'Lundqvist Lord of No Rings' shirt !!

When Stamkos couldn't convert on that breakaway, after hitting the crossbar earlier, I was reminded of the great quote from the 2000 Eastern Conference Finals against the Flyers:

 

"John Leclair now knows he cannot score on Martin Brodeur"

Substitute Stamkos & Crawford into that sentence and you have a clear picture of the 2015 Final.

Essentially, the Bolts got Callahan & the 2015 1st rounder from the Rags.

 

Since the trade both players are relatively even in the Regular Season, where Callahan has 65 points and MSL has 60.

MSL did well in the playoffs last year, but this year the numbers are almost the same for each guy in the playoffs.

 

The Rags went for the Cup in '14, knowing they were giving up a lot with Callahan & also to get MSL..but I recall Callahan had already turned down the Rags extension-offer and was headed toward RFA/UFA...

 

Still, it's nice to see Callahan playing well...while MSL sits and waits for an offer.

 

If the Rags don't get close to the Conference Finals next year and/or the Bolts win the Cup this year, it will be seen as a sweet trade for the Bolts.

I'm not in favor of MSL on NJD.  

 

For a right wing, maybe Justin Williams....but he probably wants to stay on a playoff team.
