Probably true at this point. :P

Of course its all made up right ????? The insiders dont have real sources right ???????
Like i said 99.9% of stuff from the talking heads are nothing more than hot air.

Some things they do have some inside information but again right now all GM's are talking. It is part of their job to talk to other GM it does not mean there is even a single ounce of truth to a deal getting done.

So apparently the Pens made an offer for Kesler before Olympic break. If Maata is a piece coming this way I'll be happy

3 first round picks now for buffalo
You must be joking. Miller and Ott walk at the end of the year, and now they can flip Halak. The get Stewart for another year (or they can trade him too).

The 1st rounder is apparently in 2015, and the 3rd in 2016.

Buffalo gets bigger, younger and better going from Ott to Stewart. They lose going Miller to Halak, but not massively so, and they pick up a 1st, a former (last year) 2nd, and a 3rd round pick.

Not bad at all. Obviously St Louis intends to go for it, because they gave up A LOT for two rental players.

Bob Rossi on Twitter: #pens did pitch #Canucks on Kessler before Olympics. Hearing Sutter, Pouliot part of those talks. That was before Letang situation.

Basically what the Penguins got for Staal. Pittsburgh would have to add.

Pens got a young player - Sutter
Canes top prospect - Dumoulin
Canes first round pick - Ollie Maata

For Staal

Sutter is nothing special. Maata has to be the main piece coming this way. The kid is a beaut plus he was Horvats teammate in London

Incorrect. Derrick Pouliot was drafted with the 8th overall pick by Pittsburgh. The pick they obtained in the Staal Trade. Maatta was drafted 22nd overall, with Pittsburgh's own draft pick.

Sounds nuts, but seriouly.........why not? Why not go this route if the opportunity was there?

Oops me bad

Not a massive fan of Pouliot. Defence prospects who are 5'11 I have no interest in. Maatta is on his way to becoming a very good 1st pairing NHL D-man

Yes, that and trading his starter for a draft pick.

I wonder with the Sabres salary dump if they would trade Tyler Myers for Chris Tanev....
