Does someone get traded and how does that mess with team chemistry?
Feel the same. Upshall is the only one I don't much care about. He didn't do much while healthy, and has been down forever. I'm almost frustrated if Barch loses his spot to him. Seems Barch plays better when he's a regular, almost like he knows he doesn't have to go out there and try too hard.

I tell you what, i don't really MISS Upshall. As far as i'm concerned, he contributed very very little to our success. Though, i am excited to see if he can turn the page and really come into his game down the stretch once he's healthy. He needs to either contribute offensively, or play a fast-paced, banging type of game. Hopefully he can generate some chemistry with someone on the third/fourth line.
As I said, I feel the same. Just want Santorelli moved, not sure what we could get or who would go with him, though.

Glad to get Bergenheim and Skille back soon. What do we do with Sturm healthy as well? He played very well while out there.

Noooo, no you can't have Ekblad!
