I actually thought it was because Norm Green cheated on his wife or something to that effect so he tried to skip town to live it down.

I heard some stories that he was a bit bumpy with some of his female co-workers and he would have surely been #Metoo'd today but I don't think this was a relevant factor in his decision to move the team because his wife told him to do so, that seems too big. He put significant money in renovating the Met Center and I truly believe he wanted to make it work. Otherwise he wouldn't have bought the Gunds' part of ownership or he would have try to move earlier in L.A. before the League would cut the grass below his feet by granting Anaheim an expansion franchise.

Aaaaand the Habs clinch with the same amount of points (58) that the Stars have right now. Hopefully they stay in 4th so that they can get raaaaaaaaaaped by the Leafs.

So all the playoff teams are now set, right? Are they really gonna play all those Calgary/Van games stretching into next week? And why did they compress the Stars schedule so much when there are still at least another 5 or 6 days left of the season?

I think it's because Vancouver had that outbreak and missed like 3 weeks, so they shuffled all their pointless games to now. As far as I can tell, Vancouver will be playing pointless games even after the playoffs start (they technically aren't eliminated somehow).

So those games will be played while the playoffs are going, then? I guess it's just draft order that is of concern otherwise, nix 'em and let's just move on.

If I'm the GM of the Stars, I am offering Hintz, Lindell, and either two conditional firsts or Bourque and a conditional first for Eichel.

Keep Hintz, send Lindell and two 1sts. We don't need another Dellandrea or Tufte clogging up the depth chart anyway.

If you think this is your championship window and Eichel is what is needed, then yes, the 1sts are way more expendable because you'd like to assume that you are doing well and the picks will be lower anyway.

Lindell has to go to make the money work. But they can definitely have Dellandrea or Tufte + 1sts.

Can we set the trade difficulty to easy and just send them Kero for Eichel?

Or better yet, let's just forget Buffalo and take McDavid.

Normally I'd say none of these trades are enough but the Sabres DID trade Hall for a 2nd, so...

I doubt Seguin would waive his NMC to go to Buffalo, but we can daydream about Seguin+ for Eichel.

Nah, they'll go with no one. Someone hasn't proven themselves.
