The Moulson trade is a franchise wrecker. He was close to John Tavares and like Grapes has noted a much better player. Why do teams panic with young talent they need to let it develop, I guess the oilers are next hopefully we don't trade Riemer to them because that would be the Leafs franchise wrecker! Bernier is too small....mark my words.

Glen Healy is the best.  I look forward to his insightful views each Saturday night...

Another wrinkle in the Vanek deal: if the 1st round pick NYI sent Buff ends up top 10 in June, Isles have option to defer the pick to 2015>> Isles have confidence this season I see

@Pent_House THey should hang on to the tandem. Do we even have a backup goalie in our system. Unless a Duchene or an Eberle is coming back in a massive package deal. Why give up our aces.

@Pent_House Wait until he shuts out Edmonton tonight then the trade talks really heat up.

I still say Reimer, Liles and Kulemin will get us Yakupov or RNH

@Pent_House Not doubting, but what sources? I'm bored and want to read up on stuff :)

@Burtonboy I love this re Grabo:

"But he has scored just once since and Caps coach Adam Oates has shuffled him to a third-line role with Jason Chimera and Joel Ward."

@Burtonboy who Fights on Edmonton? And the ice is usually good in Edmonton. Could be a barn burner. WHo's in net.

@mcloki @Pent_House MacIntyre in the A is better than Scrivesn was in the same spot. I don't mind taking a chance on him as an NHL backup...

@mcloki @Pent_House Look at Carolina, they thought they were in good shape with Ward and Khubodin, now both are injured and they are looking at DiPietro for God's sake.

@Komas Taberle Nice vid.  I would have to agree with PentHouse, unless its an exceptional forward that we wouldn't normally ever have a shot at, defenders that shut down consistently with minimal mistakes is priority.

I was just drooling at your RNH comment because  .....  well  JVR-RNH-Kess   I can dream right?
