Aside from this being ludicrous, why on Earth should the Devils make a deadline deal for Sven Baertschi? What exactly would that do? How would that help us? You want to add a bottom six/borderline NHL forward to a sh!tty team that is nine points out of a playoff spot? Yea, fvck Lou, how could he not pull the trigger on that? Baertschi was the missing piece!


Seriously dude? haha alright. I understand damn well that I just have to mention Lou or the word GM and people will jump at me and just have the reflex to freak out cause they ran out of patience long ago. Thats fair. That being said, really often it's wrong. I got jumped today and i was actually DEFENDING Lou and whoever took it the wrong way.


I was talking about both GMs, was not even crapping on Lou. Not sure which GM it was that was on TV i think it was Bergevin and he was explaining how trades and everything were going down. And when a guy is made available, they have some kind of network or wtv and GMs have access to all of that.


So what i was saying is that i'd be really surprised if Lou wasnt aware that he was available based on that AND i would have been surprised too that Calgary would not shop him around and look at the interest around the league to get the best return.


It's only common sense really.


if he didn't go for it at all maybe he just don't like him or didn't see anything in him or wtv. We'll never know.


But believing that GMs are completely in the dark and would only know that a guy is available only if the GM calls him directly... thats a bit silly. And its based on that that i answered the other poster.



again, i like you but you really went full retard on that one lol i was really not bashing Lou. * hugs *

Well what is Shanahan/Nonis saying to the media in Toronto you think? Or in Arizona or any team that is not quite there? Honest question. 


Again it's not as if people don't understand the business talk.


But again, at this point it's insulting people's intelligence. This feels like you have kids that are 14 years old now and you're still there dressed up as santa on christmas and as much they are telling you "Dad come on! cut the crap, i know it's you, get that fake beard off" and you get "Ho ho hoooooo, what are you talking about little Jimmy! Have you been good this yearrr? ho ho hoooo"


It's a bit sily. No one in the whole world thinks they have a shot, not the fans, not the players, not their moms. No one.  Cut the crap if REALLY it's only sweet talking. 


and the "message" that should be sent to the players is "Boys i know things are not great right now but we're gonna make the necessary steps to make this team better, so work with me here and be patient" 


There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Players knows damn well what they are into.




That being said im okay with today, there's not much we could have done really and at least things were done.

well bottom line we didnt get rid of those guys but they won't be our problem next season at least. And technically we should have a way younger team next season

Well for fvcks sake.  No.. no, don't take the bait.  


Just Lou speak.  He couldn't get anything else worked out so he has to say that.  


It's insulting everyone's intelligence really lol

Maybe the GM didn't say "wait! Before this deal goes through, I have to call Jersey to see what they want to offer."

Other teams are going to do business.


But isnt it a GM's job to look at all possibilities to make sure you make the right decision?
