Yeah, get the feeling at least one "young vet" trade is coming this offseason, for a package of picks (like Palms, MoJo, Mueller, etc).  Devils also have enough warm bodies that they can throw one in as well.  Gotta think some among the Q-types won't be back next year. 

I agree with the premise, but object to categorizing Mueller as a "young vet", especially at the time he name here when he had like 55 games played over 3 years. 

Even now, I am not sure he qualifies as a veteran with 135 games played.

Nice (but long) article on Pat Maroon & why he chose StL:  http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/24931004/nhl-patrick-maroon-decision-sign-st-louis-blues-betting-familial-ties SNIPPET:  Maroon e

Mojo is still in the hospital this morning. If the Bruins want to be pissed about their damaged goods, they can look no further than the dirty piece of rat sh!t wearing number 63 for them

Doc rules. Really miss him.

Yeah, Mueller is definitely NOT part of that category...I made the mistake of throwing him in there because the price to bring him in was about the same as it was for Palms and MoJo.  That was more of a "former first-rounder who didn't succeed with his first team, so maybe he will here" move.  Guys picked that high tend to get second, third, and even fourth chances.

I still can’t believe he was picked first round. And I’m a Devils fan, I know who is and is not a first round pick who should not have been drafted in the first round.

Steve Bernier was not only drafted in the first round, but was one of only 8 players who received an offer sheet in the NHL since 2005 (Blues offered him 1 year at $2.5M that Canucks matched).

Have to imagine a trade is made.  I can't picture us selecting 10 players.

I don't think they even have 10 players on their short list.  I agree that there will be a trade or two.

Rags tie it with 6.1 seconds left.... Torts is challenging for interference... zero intereference but who knows with the NHL...

EDIT: good goal

EDIT EDIT: Jackets win and clinch. MTL out.

They're using Brooks's story in the Post as the source. Has anyone read it? It essentially says that Yzerman hasn't said that he wasn't going to join the Rangers front office. It's one of the most baseless articles I have ever read.

Still enough to make me nervous. If he was all in on going back to Detroit I’d feel better. Guy built an absolute juggernaut down in TB. 

Hope you’re right though.

Not the most exciting matchups ever, but CGY/COL should be good. MacKinnon vs Johnny Hockey. 

Gonna take a miracle for CBJ to get their first ever playoff series win going up against TB.
