If you trade somebody, as prospect as they are, you need to know that you're capable of replacing them....I just don't see, RIGHT NOW, how Kemp wil be able to do that...We'll give the guy a chance...

NYR fan in peace

I went to the same college with TJ (Mercyhurst in Erie, PA) and watched him while he was there. First off - he is a good dude overall.

From a hockey standpoint he is a slightly smaller, gritty, speedy d-man. I have been pulling for him ever since we graduated. Hopefully he gets his shot with you guys. Like I said - he's a good dude and has some potential as a decent 3rd pairing depth guy

best of luck

Good to hear his frequent trading wasn't a behaviour thing.

Depth move for Hamilton.....I guess St-Denis might not cut it for Lever and he's on hiw way back to Cincy real soon.
Like I was saying.....

Just didn't predict the Wyman's demotion, but seems to me that those acquisitions are in no way related to the Habs as far as getting players but more about Hamilton and Cincy losing some 'cause of the injuries.

Funny how people turn to ridicule every move BGainey makes. Some posters are as annoying as the french media they rant about.

YEAH! I mean Who does Gainey think he is?! Trading Rivet for a No name failure Josh Gorges, and a 1st Rounder who will probably be a flop?...oh wait..

You have to wonder sometimes, when a guy gets away on draft day, if they don't keep an eye out for him, and eventually make a deal for that player? I am sure Timmins doesn't get his man every year at the draft table

The guy is almost 28.

Kemp was never drafted and would not have been eligible when Timmins' joined our organization.

On a side note, he played with the Dogs last night.. and scored!

So your Eklund as you have the same take?

Anyways, nothing big, not worth the space it takes up lol.
