Because they sympathize with our desire to win a Stanley Cup and would hurt their franchise to help ours. Do I have to explain everything ? Sheesh.

MIller Time, your 1st scenario is interesting. Modin,Fedotenko, are solid players, and anything's possible. TB may aim higher in nets though. I think any GM would be smart to chat with Feaster on a regualar basis, because his decisions are likely to have a domino effect on a few players. Lang makes sense to me. Another year with Pleks not having to do more than he may be capable of, a year for Chipchura to develop. Bonk's last contract year. Presuming Arnott will find someone to overpay, Lang could make sense if Detroit wants to re-toll a bit.

The problem with dealing though is that you know where the conversations start.

Higgins,Pleks,Chipchura etc.
