What he hell is Gainey doing?

I would offer Gomez to any team willing to take him and then turn around and make a deal for Lecavalier and Downie.

Pouliot - Lecavalier - Kostitsyn
Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta
Downie - Lapierre - Kostitsyn
Darche - Metropolit - Moen

Markov - Gorges
Hamrlik - Spacek
Gill - O'Byrne

Price
Halak
That's impressive, who did you trade to Tampa to get Vinny and Downie?

Other GMs are making trades?

LETS PANIC, WOOHOO!!

How dare something happen around the league that is not related to the sainte flanelle? Surely Gainey should have tried acquiring :

Phaneuf
Jokinen
Lecavalier
Giguere
Kovalchuk
White (for Plekanec )
...

Who else now? Hossa for a change? You guys want Gainey to build the team intelligently yet become intensely jealous at every single deal happening around the league. Even mediocre over the hill players getting waived should be picked up, hell, some people wanted Sykora! Intelligent building means not every player traded fits with the team Gainey envisions. Phaneuf has a huge salary, Jokinen isn't that good and is a UFA and Bob has been trying for AGES to acquire Lecavalier and only failed because the trade was blocked.

Now can everyone calm the **** down? Thank you.

I don't understand why Sutter is trading guys when their value is at its worst. I know he has to make a change but geez..
Because he has a deal in place for Kovalchuk or someone of the same salary stature (Vinny?) and needs to get under a certain amount for the league to allow the deal b/c of the cap.

I may overeact sorry guys i hate when everyone improves or steal some players while we watch the show..
I'd rather Gainey do nothing than panic and make a trade just for the sake of making a trade.

I would have to assume he has something bigger on the horizon, because he had too many forwards before this trade, and now he's picked up one more.

The Gomez trade and all the free agent signings. What Gainey did this summer is very out of character if you look at the way he built the team before.

Hopefully, he'll realise that it's over and won't make desperate moves in an attempt to salvage the season (and his job I guess, based on what he said earlier in the year).

Trade? If WestIslander was GM, players from other teams will just add themselves to his roster.

Kotalik doesn't seem like a Flames-type of player. And if they think Higgins will relaunch Iginla...

So the CBA would re-write itself in order to allow contracts to be modified?

That guy is really amazing.

Sutter must be gearing up to acquire a centre because the Flames have way too many wingers now.

So by trading Gomez, the Rangers actually got Gaborik and 1/2 of Jokinen?

Kotalik was good in the West last year with the Oilers. Higgins isn't playing with Iggy.

As brutal as (most of) his FA signings can be...this guy always seems to come out the winner in a trade.

Did they?

Phaneuf is so overrated, and Ollie hasn't been good since Florida...both teams are going for names.

What is Calgary up to? Kovalchuk?

People are bashing Sutter. He did land Bouwmeester. That was pretty good.

I agree. Furthermore going for names as you say is extremely typical of Leafs and Rangers, it really isn't that surprising and we should be careful before claiming these are the deals of the century.
