I really hope we make a deal soon for a good defender. 15 minutes a night of Therien is too much.
You didn't miss out on Janne N. There was never any chance of Philly getting him. Part of the premise for the deal was moving him out of the conference. Isles wouldn't have given him away so cheap for a within-division deal.
Can't fault Bobby C on this one at all.
And, Seidenberg is a nice player but not the kind of guy the Isles need. They were looking for a physical guy for the blueline. I think the other player in the running was probably Cullimore on ChiHawks.
