He'll replace it with his traditional playoff chances in every game thread. 

If we don't re-sign Gionta we'll have plenty of tiny jerseys available...

Gelinas is terrible.  I don't think he holds any value unless you package him with other players in a one player deal.

It's a little more 'debatable' how much of a success John Moore has been, really he's been awful since his injury and only his three-year contract and the staff's infatuation with him keeps him from being benched.  Last night he looked like Mark Fayne getting coned against the Caps in his rookie year type bad and Fayne didn't play 250 NHL games by that point.

I didn't say John Moore was a success or failure but he was a move Shero made.

San Jose closing in on a deal for James Riemer.  

I really don't understand what they are doing.  It would seem that the Thornton/Marleau cup window closed a few years ago and it seemed like they understood that when they announced they were rebuilding...and then they didn't.   Now it seems like they're going all in this year trading their 1st for Jones and overpaying with (2) 2nd on that deadline deal for Polak and Spaling.  Now they're going for goalie depth?   Hopefully they didn't pay much.

Apparently their backup is hot garbage. Reimer is their new backup.

The Sharks' #1 (Martin Jones) is ok and has had some very good stretches, but isn't a lock to keep the job with Reimer in the fold.  I think this move might have been less about upgrading the backup position, and more about having two reasonably dependable goalies, either of which can be their #1 depending on who has the hot hand.

So apparently, Florida and the Devils have been talking about Schlemko.   Brandon Pirri has supposedly asked for a trade, so that would be a nice return, certainly better than a third round pick.

NJD are one of the teams (albeit many) in the mix for Tampa Bay Lightning forward Johnathan Drouin:

The greater financial obligation team takes on, less they'll be willing to give up in tangible assets. TB needs to make a good hockey deal.

It's possible, I suppose, losing Carle's contract could be part of a deal but problem for TB in that case is it would reduce yield on trade.

If Drouin is traded, TB will have to get a piece that helps them this season and a significant prospect for the future. Maybe a pick, too?

Obviously, some come and go. A few come back for a 2nd look. Not all are fits but I'd think TB has a handful of legit offers to consider.

Often asked where Drouin may go. No strong sense at this time. I'd say 15 to 20 teams have shown varying degrees interest at varying times.

Hudler to FLA is a good pickup for them. He should do well there.

Basically McKenzie looks like he's throwing sh!t at they wall to see what sticks. On to Cincinnati.

I would think Drouin would want to take the Saad route and go to a team where he will get the playing time he desires and be "under the radar". That's how things have looked the past couple of months.

 

Arizona, Carolina and us would really be the teams that fit that bill.
