Around The NHL 2012-13 Part II
 
Continue leaguewide talk here

Devils acquire C Andrei Loktionov from Kings for a 5th round pick

TorMenT 02-06-2013 06:57 PM

Bruins getting dominated by the Canadiens but Rask is being a boss. No shots yet for the Bruins over 10 minutes in.

GGGHawks18 02-06-2013 06:58 PM

For a 5th? Hawks should of been all over that.

Dean probably would have required more from a Western team.

And just like that

Habs no shots thru 10 minutes into 2nd period

And they score on 2nd shot of period with 9:07 left (Subban goal)

Why? He's no better than what we have in our system.

Sevanston 02-06-2013 10:45 PM

Ben Lovejoy had the same price as Andrei Loktionov.

IU Hawks fan 02-06-2013 10:50 PM

This Turco feature at intermission during the Stars broadcast is hilarious. He goes around the rink interviewing all these people and nobody knows crap about the team. He finds a guy in his jersey who's very excited to see him and asks him what he thinks of Oleksiak and he's all "who???"

:laugh:

DisgruntledHawkFan 02-06-2013 11:36 PM

The stars announcers are horrible. Jagr gonna Jagr.

Bubba88 02-07-2013 05:29 AM

IIRC Kings fans once wanted a 2nd for Loktionov :laugh:

Hawkaholic 02-07-2013 04:44 PM

Tim Thomas traded to the Islanders for a conditional draft pick in 2014 or 2015.

Sevanston 02-07-2013 04:48 PM

The condition is that TT reports to them or any other NHL team (if NYI traded him), so this looks purely like a cap move.

McKenzie also said that TT still has no intentions of playing this year.

The NHL: where it's no longer OK to bury contracts in the minors, but it's fine to bury contracts in the Islanders.

UsernameWasTaken 02-07-2013 06:06 PM

it sounds like they could count thomas against their cap pretty much forever, as long as he doesn't ever dress for them.

Kurtosis 02-07-2013 07:32 PM

Detroit up 2-0 already on St. Louis.

Blackhawkswincup 02-07-2013 07:36 PM

Start of 2nd period = Caps 1 - Pens 0
Late in 2nd period = Pens 4 - Caps 1

Caps are a trainwreck

Blackhawkswincup 02-07-2013 07:39 PM

Crosby makes it 5-1 Pens ,, Nearly 6-1 as Sutter has puck nearly for open net

2nd period over

Troy Brouwer on PK = Horrendous to watch

Illinihockey 02-07-2013 07:45 PM

Remember when Brian Elliott remembered he was Brian Elliott? Blues fans better hope Halak can stay healthy

Tone King 02-07-2013 07:48 PM

Who ever thought the Blues would be worried about goaltending......

Blackhawkswincup 02-07-2013 07:49 PM

To be honest Halak wasn't setting world on fire when he was healthy either

madgoat33 02-07-2013 07:54 PM

gee, blues couldn't continue their miracle half season? color me shocked.

and caps are a joke. still can't believe hunter didn't/wouldn't stay as hc

Hawkaholic 02-07-2013 07:57 PM

Loving seeing the Blues falter.
Love seeing OV and Caps struggle.
Sucks to see VAN playing well.

No Fun Shogun 02-07-2013 08:02 PM

Utterly blatant cap circumvention going on between Boston and the Isles with Thomas.

If the NHL went after the Devils for their contract, then they've got to do something here. Essentially the Isles are just adding cap space for a player who has no intention to play and, as a result, the team has no intention of actually paying.

Blackhawkswincup 02-07-2013 08:03 PM

I dont get hate for OV

I liked him when he was dominating the league and he has been trying to improve his all around play these past few years. IMO they should stick him on like with Backstrom and tell Ovy just score again

Let his linemates cover his defensive mistakes

Devils pushed it and league took them to woodshed

Every GM/owner knows about this loophole and dont mind it (Big markets want cap to increase so the floor teams need help via any means to keep up)

The Devils trying to sign Kovy into his mid 40's and at such obvious circumvention (I believe his salary in final years was less then 1M) had to be called out by league and it was right thing to do
