So crazy that it's probably horseshit!

As for the jerseys, I like 'em.

Bob McKenzie said McPhee did something interesting. He would only do an expansion related trade with a team if the team promised not to do other trades that would hurt Vegas's expansion draft.

Meaning, if a team agreed to a trade with Vegas regarding who Vegas would or would not select, then Vegas didn't want that team trading with another team to take a player Vegas was likely to select in the expansion draft.

Looks like Vegas took Eakin.



Dreger also thinks so.

In hindsight, we probably should have just kept Ribeiro. At least he can handle the puck.

Kari backup. Niemi who cares? Bury him in AHL as a 3rd string goalie for a injury, or assign him to Europe (like Chicago did with Huet), keep him as a healthy scratch. Buy him out, but then be stuck with his contract $1.5 million this season and next on the cap.

If they really took Haula, they've got a chance.

One of the two official trades so far. The other was a draft pick from Buffalo to Vegas.

I bet a lot of the dudes getting picked are pissed. Some are leaving some great teams to go to a 10-win team next year.

I was thinking the Stars might go after Methot or Reinhart.

Any GM who traded a first round pick to save an unprotected fourth liner should be fired.

With the Methot rumors.
Higher % is better, lower % is worse.



I'd much rather sign Brendan Smith in free agency.

Does this mean he sucks or was just a bad fit with Karlsson. How was he with other players?

How is Karlsson's fancystat percentage with Nemeth?

The positive was he played very tough minutes with Ottawa, if you're just going by the eye test they were a great pair.
His corsi w/o Karlsson was mainly with Ceci, but they faced lower level competition.

Methot has tons of mileage on his body (injury prone as well) and they'd be paying a premium for a 32 year old defenseman. He's a major candidate to be a failure for a team acquiring him, he's also slow.

Methot just reminds me so much of when the Stars added Oduya. It was fine in year one, but the second year it was just horrible.

Would be a much smarter option to pay for Brendan Smith's years 28-32. Even if they have to overpay to get him on a 5 year deal.

I'd be happy if we would just avoid UFA defensemen alltogether.
