Trade from strength to fill a need. Makes sense. If you can get a viable D-man back in the deal as well, it makes even more sense. If that d-man is a potential top-4, PPQB that plays the right side? No brainer.

People can debate the money all they want, but it's all speculation. Have yet to see any tangible evidence that ROR cannot be an excellent #2 right now and perhaps has #1C upside.
Totally agree. No one is saying to trade for him no matter what. But if the deal makes sense, many are not opposed to it.

McQuaid and Campbell to NYR
Boyle Bourque and 2ed in 2014 and 3rd (FLA)
Doubt the Bruins move Campbell. They love him there, as they should. He fights, forechecks well, heart and soul player.

Ryan Whitney scratched again to make room for Theo Peckham. Devan Dubnyk starts for #Oilers in net.

I'd take him at half his salary as a bottom-pairing guy for this season only. Cheap reclamation project? Sather hates those.....

Exactly. He is a difference-maker. That is what a 7 million dollar a year player should look like on a nightly basis.
