I wonder if any deal we make with Washington might include a cap swap of Booth for Erat. Straight up one for one. Both teams just taking a chance that a change of scenery will give the players a bit of a reset, and if that fails then compliance buyout and the Caps save $250K.

I also read a scouting report on Kuznetsov that has me less interested than I was about 5 minutes ago. He's pegged as being moody and also not 100% sure about leaving Russia and coming over to the NHL. I also don't like that he's already 21 years old and only 172 lbs.

Diaz out, Weaver in, good job Habs.

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

Dustin Penner for a 4th seems cheap.

For some strange reason, Penner just decided to stop playing half way through this season.

He started the season on fire playing with Getzlaf and Perry and then inexplicably stopped playing hard and started getting scratched.

The guy's got some serious mental issues. I'm surprised Anaheim got a 4th for him.

One would think that playing on a legitimate SC contender would motivate one to play half decent so not to get dumped for a bag of pucks. Especially as one of the leaders of the team (Getzlaf) actually advocated on your behalf to bring you in.

I'm just sayin RD. You don't have to get up all in my face.

Penner has done this throughout his career. It is why he has moved from Edmonton to LA, Anaheim and now Washington.

How can anyone be surprised. OK, a good playoffs inflated his rep WooooooHoooooo

I think the Ducks were trying to make a statement by trading him on National Pancake Day. :lol:

Penner was looking for a big payday as a UFA last summer, all he was offered was a 1 year deal at $2m.

I would like to see Jason Garrison traded to the Buffalo Sabres for Tyler Myers, similar contracts and i think both guys would do better with a change of scenery..

Tyler Myers is still young. Probably should have stayed in juniors 1 more year. Love to have him on the Canucks.

reading this in the draft thread..

He's got a very decent shot and is already perhaps our best playmaker not named Hank. For that reason alone he'd work well w/ the Twins, create room for them, do the dirty work, cycle w/ them & protect them. He'd also do well w/ Kesler in he could BE the setup man 17 needs. Wingers who are setup men don't grow on trees and are invaluable for a shooter like Kesler. Down the road he could be laying the sauce for Shinkaruk or whoever we land at 6.
I agree that he's got all the tools, but I worry about his conditioning and mental make-up to play a top-6 role consistently. He was playing great in a depth role this year, and if that development continues he should be able to solidify a top-6 role. The biggest obstacle will be his conditioning and maintaining his awareness. If he can't keep the feet moving and the brain working at a high level for that 16-18 minutes/night he will be less effective.

He definitely should be on the PP, though.
Kassian is in good shape, however I agree having him in a 2nd or 3rd line role for now is beneficial for quality depth.

I'm all for swapping out Burrows and replacing him with a bigger, tougher winger who can still play top minutes and play well with the Sedins and to me that is Scott Hartnell.

My proposal:

Edler + Hansen for Hartnell + depth dman.

Then we can trade Burrows to the Habs for Josh Georges, as we need another good gritty defensive dman, our porous defense was way too sloppy this season.
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."

I'm sure the Flyers would go for it, but with Hartnell having a NMC, I don't see it working. He did seem to have fun with the Sedins during their time at the All-Star game ("Suck it Phaneuf!"), and I'd much rather have him than Burrows, but his contract ($4.75M until 2018-19 when he's 37) and NMC probably prevent it.
