Thanks, I needed that laugh.

Seriously, RJ Umberger will be traded shortly after the heat death of the universe. He's the heart and soul of this team, loves the city of Columbus (it's his offseason home), and the #1 candidate among the "Strip Nash Of The C!" crowd. Yes, he'd do great with the Preds... but he ain't goin' nowhere for nothin'. It'd be like asking St. Louis to trade Oshie.

Huselius is definitely available, but I think his contract is too high for Poile. ($4.75/yr for about 60 points, and he's not exactly a natural goal-scorer.)

Also, for the record, both of those deals expire next year, not this year.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
