I'm sure (Lamoriello has) already notified Mr Ladd that beard's gotta go.

And buh-bye Mr Greiss.

But at least the Isles get Kovalchuk amirite?

11th overall for a #1 goalie?
On second thought I think Lou will keep Greiss.

Greiss had a tough year, but he is a solid backup

... and Lou's target is rumoured to be Grubauer.

These are the only 2 German goalies in the league.

I'll bet he gives up the 11th/12th for Grubauer.

(Isles would probably get something else back)

It's his pattern to give up a high pick for an on-the-cusp #1.

(Schneider, Andersen)

And if he can't intimidate Ladd onto Robidas Island

... I'll bet he sends the other 1st in a trade to dump the Ladd contract.

Grubauer is highly sought after, I wonder if Caps insist Orpik is included in a trade.

I think that would give the Caps room to re-sign everyone including Carlson.

And I wonder if these moves would convince Tavares to re-up with Islanders?

If these moves happen Isles could re-sign Eberle and Lee in a years time.

(moving Ladd, just 1 year left on Orpik, and signing Grubes to ~ $4.5M x 5)

Not many teams would take on that Ladd contract, even with a 1st, but I think maybe the Canes?

I'm sure nobody cares about any of this, but I was obsessing a bit this morning and I just couldn't keep it to myself. :blush:

If the allegations are true, who in their right mind would bring that family into their organization?

Dorian "Hey, you want Hoffman, give us a 2nd for him"
GM "Really? A 2nd? That's it? What's the catch?"
Dorian "You also get his wife who's going to threaten the other players wives and wish harm on their kids in a daily basis"

One of em will get dealt to get rid of the toxic.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Slava Voynov eyes return to NHL. He has had a meeting with Bettman and the NHLPA. They are holding off commenting until he resolves his legal issues and gets a new work VISA for the USA and or Canada. If he is successful in getting his criminal record expunged he should get his VISA. How does that square with The Donald's immigration stand on criminals vs his love for Russia.

His NHL rights are confirmed still owned by LA.
