Oh shit. That feel when the bar doesn't have the game on.

Am I missing something with Kyle Clifford - he looks like a 4th line winger to me. A really good one, mind you, but still a 4th line winger. Am I wrong?

Why am I the only guy hoping that Gagner would wind up in  Toronto?

@Cameron19  Do they need a center or would Vanek or Moulson not be a better fit?

@Cameron19  that is about right....maybe a 3rd line guy on EDM....but big strong and can play...something EDM doesnt have much of.

@Murph2417  Careful though, too much and you end up just like them. It's a trap.

Guy's a mule, he's a little smaller than we'd want, but if the price is right (and it apparently is) I'd take him in a heartbeat.

@Axle_Goalie Because in french gagner means "win" so subliminally you think if we have him we are assured to win?

@Cameron19 @ingy56  Maybe they want contract certainty, but Gagner's $4.8 is risky IMO, plus he's not productive. Maybe they get him cheaper than Moulson or Vanek.

Lmfao. Kipper was on fan590 and said NO WAY does St. Louis go to Olympics. He's trying to save face.

Apparently la needs to shed salary so I'm sure something is in the works

@whalz  I think all anyone does is speculate. I mean, Dreger is literally related to our GM, and the closest he's come to predicting anything that would happen for our team in the last 2 years, is to say in summer that the Leafs may look to swap a d-prospect for a forward prospect with Anaheim. Other than that, he hasn't even been close.

-

Pagnotta probably has some sources, and like Phook said, he does actually talk to players and what not, but doesn't mean that whatever he hears will actually come true. 

-

Having said that, I know you guys will laugh because it's me, but I could see a three way trade that makes sense here - and LA and EDM are two of the very few teams that have actually pulled one off in recent memory.
