CONFIRMED: #Flyers are having exploratory talks for Jagr, Clowe and Bouwmeester.

 

Well that explains it, it's a bidding war. Sigh.

You know, what's the friggin point of a CBA if we're going to get outbid by the bigger-wallet clubs every single time?

As @KKurzCSN pointed out, the 4th round pick SJ is getting for Handzus was originally a Sharks one. Getting back their own

Eh, I think they got more then they should've for Murray (who JR also got outbidded for,) and while they are winning they've underachieved in the playoffs the past few years and I sense they're going to rebuild soon.

 

Also, saw this proposal posted at HFBoards, I can't be the only one that would love this deal, right?

 

Marc Staal, Gaborik, 2nd + 3rd 

for 

Skinner, McBain, 1st

Wouldn't that be great, except Marc is probably out the season.

Sounds like we might hear something either right before or right after the game tonight, somethings sound finalized.  Not sure why its not in print anywhere yet unless they're just waiting for league stamp of approval.  Anyone see if McBain was in the line up tonight yet?

Lineup says he's in, same with Jussi.

JR's back must be really against the wall in terms of acquiring a D-man for him to be willing to move Murphy.

 

I think JRs back was put against the wall about this team once this realignment was announced.  We are going to playing the high paying, high skilled, and large teams that are in the atlantic.  This team has to get bigger and stronger on D.  Murphy (to me) is a 4-5 year project.   Is JR able to wait that long and how many other pieces have value that we are willing to trade?

interesting talking point though about STL.  Now with Bouw they have 9 nhl Dmen.  Minus Redden, they could look to re-sign all their Dmen.  On top of that they will have to make decision on Patrik Berglund, Andy McDonald, Chris Stewart, Alex Pietrangelo, Ian Cole, Russell, and Shattenkirk.  They have 40 million tied up.  They will more than likley let McDonal go.  Pietrangelo will get a 7 mil price tag.  They will have 14 mil to re-sign all above mentioned.  They could do it but maybe Pietrangelo could be available.

I just read this.  It's a dark day for the Hurricanes organization and its fans...

 

TSN reports that their sources have leaked out that JR traded moderator TSA to the Florida Panthers message boards for a key lime pie and a moderator to be named later.

 

"A move needed to be made.  Kirk and I got together and decided that it was time for TSA to have a change of scenery.  We appreciate all the hard work and dedication to the organization, blah blah blah.  Oh, don't print that last part.  Want some pie?"

 

Snoopy could not be reached for comment.

We send Adam Hall back to Tampa (and a 7th) for Marc-Andre Bergeron. Interesting move, Hall never really quite fit in on the fourth line. 

 

Oh, and Bergeron is known as a "PP Specialist". At 5'9, I hope he's fast... :dizzy:

Hahaha I'm glad I wasn't sent to the Sabres board ;)  And for what,  a few buffalo wings?

 

Carry on folks....

A curious trade. Curious on both sides. Our need for a defenseman who can help the Power Play makes the trade worth the risk. Really whats the risk. It either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't we haven't lost anything.

 

Now if this is a precursor to another move it will make a lot of sense to me.

Well we do need to do something about the PP. Of course need to do something about the PK also. And need to do something about the.....insert here.

 

He's a plus 3 which is pretty good on Tampa. He put up 20 assists in 43 games last year. But he's also had a couple of AHL stints before that.... 

 

Murphy is bigger. 

 

Should McBain be talking to his realtor?  

 

Needed some kind of move, and I just don't see JR blowing the future on this team's playoff chances so sure. 

 

Is he a FA after this year? 

 

Why has he only played 12 games? Injured? Scratched?

Possibly this was because Muller is familiar with him:

 

"Bergeron played for the Montreal Canadiens in the 2009-2010 season, when Muller was an assistant coach for the Habs. He had 13 goals and 34 points in the regular season and played in 19 playoff games.

"We're bringing him in (to help) with special teams, the power play," Muller said. "We all know we need help on there on the blue line. ... He has enough hockey sense that he should be able to jump in and feel comfortable with what we ask him to do.

"Basically he shoots the puck. He's a shooter and he's got a cannon."
