One of the stories up here in Canada is how the Lightning GM has said "anyone except the Big Three (lecav, st louis, richards) is fair game" as trade bait as the team has struggled for a while.
That's some careless use of quotes there, Hemsky.

He didn't say that.

The article said Feaster was happy with the Big 3: "I'm not displeased with the play of (Vincent) Lecavalier, (Martin) St. Louis and (Brad) Richards. They've been very good."

Then the writer said "In other words, aside from The Big Three, he's open for business."

So the writer is putting words in his mouth. (A pet peeve of mine)

When Feaster talks about the team's core, he always mentions Boyle. There was one point during the summer where they named 3 and Lecavalier was left out and Boyle was included. Tortorella plays him near 30 minutes (sometimes over) a night. He's arguably the most valuable player on the roster.

Boyle's not moving.

If he were to move - I'd love to see him in EDM, but it's not happening.

Look for Prospal, Fedotenko, or a secondary guy to move with a draft pick.

In that sense, EDM shouldn't have much interest.

Glad to see Hemsky back on the ice.
