Ummm... what part of... "I'll drop the Callahan talk"... did you not understand? :scowl:

Time for a segue methinks...

Kesler + Burrows + Edler... FOR... Malone(cap dump) + Salo(cap dump) + Drouin + Connolly.

Tampa becomes Cup favorites (for a few years?).

Canucks add to their extremely bright future.

Both teams do well at the gate. :mex: :crazy: :mex:


Tampa would instantly be the team to beat in the east. Especially with Stamkos coming back.

And I would be one of the saddest pandas in the world for a little bit. Just not ready to let go of Kes and Bur. Edler can go fuck himself though. :lol:

Any bottom-6 Hansen-like players out there? Just wondering.

That wasn't RD's left leg, nor was it his right.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

^ Another small defenceman...yay!

Weise had really lost his way this year, so no big deal there. I wonder if Archibald will get called up now?

If the team is in the tank and the players know change is coming more than a few may be willing to waive to go to a contender. After all, the party is over in Vancouver and they all want a cup.

Letang is out indefinitely with an undiagnosed illness. Wonder if they would like Edler, Luongo??

Seems to me that ol NTC chestnut is really a non issue. If the team wants to move a guy with a NTC and its to a reasonable team with a reasonable spot on the roster...what's a guy gonna do, call his agent to nix the deal and become a NHL pariah?

I agree, the NTC barrier is not the clause itself but whether Gillis feels like it will make negotiating cap friendly deals down the road more difficult. But at this point, it hardly matters and I imagine a few of those guys with NTCs would not object to getting out from under Torts or the whole situation. I'd be keeping Kesler, but otherwise, I'd be seeing what you can get for anyone. No panic deals though. You can just imagine the vulture calls Gillis is getting now..."hey, I'll take Edler for a 2nd round pick and some guy we drafted way back whose name I forget...but's he's got potential!"

The model for a trade for Gillis is the Goligoski for James Neal deal, but I'm not sure he'll find a GM as dumb as Neuwendyk to pull that off.

Adding fuel to the fire with his post-game comments.....

Torts wrote:"We need to change the complexion of our hockey club, either with our play or with different people, because we looked like a slow hockey team tonight," noted Tortorella. "We're going to keep on banging away to try and get better, but it's very frustrating to see the same looks. It worries me. I'll leave it at that."
