Re: Kassian traded to Habs...

He's clearing the decks to try and get picks at the deadline and be a player in free agency next year. Still much work to be done. It would help if he would cease giving them away like Nonis. Are we really making that comparison? Giving up picks for guys like Carney, Smolinski and Pyatt is not the ...

10 in 42 with no pp time . He played a dozen games with the twins and averaged about 14 minutes a game .
The only Hab w/ more goals per 60min played last year was Pacorietty.

Re: Kassian traded to Habs...

They shopped him at last years TDL, no takers They shopped him at this year's draft, no takers They had to pay a draft pick to get the habs to take him off our hands for a roster player... At this point Kassiab could be considered the throw in and really it's Prust for a 5th. LOL. Then Jim Benning ...

I'm sure he'll go on a mission to trade a goalie for a 5th at next year's draft. ...and settle for a 6th.

Re: Kassian traded to Habs...

Prust is character, good to have around the young kids. Kassian is not character. This is good for long term. Really? http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2455038-were-controversial-comments-from-canadiens-brandon-prust-truly-baseless Sounds like a great mentor for the kids. I'm sure the refs are goi...

Re: Kassian traded to Habs...

Saying Kassian traded to open up a RW spot for Virtanen. What was wrong w/ having both of them in the roster? ...and what happened to EARNING your spot....and if he earned it why wouldn't we trade a geezer to open a spot. I'm convinced, our GM is an idiot. He's trending towards Jack Gordon territory.

Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

Vey was gifted 3rd line C duty despite being physically over matched in every area of the ice. I do think he earned the 1st unit PP at the start of the season and was very effective with a quick release shot early until opponents countered and the Canucks were slow to react. Hypocrisy extraordinair...

Re: Who's Getting Traded?

2)I agree on Miller just, if he only wants to go to California that's basically the sharks because ANA and LA aren't picking him up I would trade him, if he is up for it, simply for the cap savings. I am not sold on Lack as a starter over a full season. I like Miller, but I'd trade him to where eve...

Re: 2014-15 Utica Comets

Willie's deployment of his backup has been deplorable so far. Lack was obviously a solid choice yet he rode the pine while Miller was healthy. Perhaps if he takes a page from his "4-line" in relation to the tenders he'd have a fresher starter & a more engaged no. 2. A 60/40 split should be reasonab...
