    In-Season 2018-2019

    McKegg was an emergency call up. Once J and Bishop ready to go he has to be sent back down although they could call him right back up

    In-season trades and player moves

    Here is the thing. Teams looking for a rental are playoff bound or at least have a reasonable shot at the playoffs. We may pull off a hockey trade but most those teams are going to trade draft picks or prospects and any player coming back is as likely to be a salary dump to make cap space. Most of these get something instead of losing a player deals mean just that. Get something. There are some exceptions. The Toronto rumors of Kapanen being available for a Dman would be an exception. Ottawa might be an exception. But this idea of bundling players in our mind that are under performing and striking gold isn't likely to happen.

    My feeling on trading Ferland is so mixed. We have been looking for years for a forward that isn't afraid to go to the net, plays with an edge and can chip in on offense. Ferland is all that. If we are out of it near trade deadline and if we are convinced he is going to test the free agency market I think you have to move him. Now if we are in the hunt or have a reasonable chance at the playoffs I doubt we are going to find a rental that brings anymore than what Ferland does. Keep him even if we lose him at the end of the season.

    I would think the next four games will determine if we are buyers, sellers or stand pat. If I were GM, we all thank a hockey god of our choice I'm not, I would be working the phones but holding fast on a deal until then. Although I counted this team out at the end of December, I won't make that mistake again, the reality is that as the season wears on it becomes more difficult to make up points. If we are within 4 or even 5 points of a playoff spot I look to buy and hang onto Ferland even if we lose him to free agency. Seven points or more out I consider all options.

    I was only able to watch the first period last night. I guess I saw enough to know we were flat and had little chance. It happens but it stings.
