Total let down coming.
Have you seen Pahlsson play lately? He's still pretty good on the PK - but he's just the black hole of offense.

I have a hard time justifying paying him $2.65M for another year and a half just to kill penalties.

Aportzline: "CBJ trade talks with Caps now confirmed from within CBJ organization. But GM Howson is having "serious talks" with another club, too."

I guess there is zero chance we move a right and a left and summon Carlson. But really I dont see Mo or Pots being the key to a cup. Nor do I see one or two young defensemen hindering a cup with Ovi around.
And really, I don't think they should. Trading one of the plethora of defensemen is great, but if they move two they're starting to lose some of that luxurious depth at D, which is such a key to teams who are trying to make deep playoff runs.

This team is great because it's deep. Don't trade that away now.

Am I imagining it, or has McPhee been reportedly interested in Torres at some point in the past? Not recently, but say 5+ years back or so?

My random guess: Morrisonn for a '10 3rd.

Random talk of Toronto on Twitter. Whether that's CJB having two series of talks, separately, or talk of a three-way deal... who knows?

People are tossing names like Alzner, Kaberle and Filatov into that mix, but apparently doing so without basis. Any names seem to be idle speculation right now.

I was thinking a year later and a round sooner.

I figure if Eminger and a 3rd can get a 1st, no reason mo can't get a second.

Bad source, but...

TheFourthPeriod: "BTW as of now, Alzner isnt going anywhere. Hes been told he's not playing tonight bc other player needs ice time, not bc he's on the move"

Beat writer sighting!

Better source, though still grain of salt as far as truthiness:

TarikElBashir: "If Karl Alzner is being scratched tonight for any reason other than it's his turn to sit, well, that's news to him."

Yeah, I don't buy that. I mean, I could definitely believe that this is exactly what is happening, but I don't buy for a second that Alzner is feeding anyone that information, especially not the Fourth Period guy. That's just speculation that sounds believable, but it's believable because it's a conclusion that your "average Joe 12-pack" could have come to logically on his or her own.

Well, Alzner to CBJ, Kaberle to WSH, and Filatov to TOR... sort of makes sense to everybody... and that's why it's good grounds for everybody to speculate..

From the little quote about CBJ talking to a 3rd team, it didn't sound like any three-way thing..

I know a let down is on the way...but im hoping this clears more salary for a potential deal for nieds. Anahiem could see that there almost out of the race and with 2 1st rounders realize the time to rebuild is now. Without giving up a young core of players Getzlaf,ryan ect maybe they dangle selanne as well.

Ducks fans will say no chance but if im the gm in Anahiem I strongly consider what I could turn 3 first rounders pending on a deal in to. Its popular to be a young fast team in the league now and this gives the ducks a chance to be that while keeping some really good players. The 2 other teams in the state of california look like they will be a force for at least the next few seasons.

ShaMo for Ruth and a 2nd

I am down with clearing the logjam, adding a pick and solidifying the team for the stretch. On the otherhand, Filatov would be effing sweet for the future, but I agree, if there is anything, it will be small.

I think Tarik should respond: "Me Talk Karl"

Funny, I made the same Ruth returning along with a pick joke in an email to a friend
