I love Scottie but his ass can be traded at any time for someone who wants to be here and wont squabble over hundreds of thousands. Really, the guy has not paid his dues yet or really stuck with a team so to speak. I don't blame DM at all for the situation. We all know he is masterful with contracts.

This will be announced tomorrow, sometime. NHL office doesn't exactly work the graveyard shift.
I think that may be likely. I don't see Upshall getting more than a year or two with Mueller and Hanzal to sign next summer.
