There is a long way to go in the season and the Rangers are still very much head-to-head with Boston.

Thread on the main boards saying TO/SJ & possible Clowe deal?

Good god. If his name is even breathed I hope Sather gets a word in edge wise.

Could you imagine Clowe & Dubi being our top 2 LW's?

Clowe has 9 goals this season and has never had 30 in a season.

We need somebody who can score.

Clowe's a 60 point player, good defensively, very physical and a good playoff producer on a solid deal. Do want. It would probably take something like Hagelin+Thomas

No way does that get it done. He's a 60 point player, but not a 30 goal scorer.

If we're making a significant trade it needs to be for somebody who can score and help the power play become top in the league. Clowe's a good player but he doesn't get that done.

Only got to watch the 3rd period of the Bruins-Panthers game.

I'm so surprised Florida didn't win, and a little pissed off. The Bruins caught some extremely fortunate breaks, as Florida couldn't score for the life of them. That 4 on 3 power play was horrible.

I am SO impressed with Florida's defense. Everyone knows about Campbell, and now Garrison, but Dimitry Kulikov is amazing. Such a fluid passer, shooter and skater, does everything at top level. I think Erik Gudbranson is being developed very poorly, but there's no denying his immense talent, and he has looked a lot better. Absolute monster physically, can skate well, a bomb from the point and he was making crisp hard passes. He got eaten alive by the Rangers in our bouts this year, but there's no doubt he can be there #1 guy in the future (or maybe 1B, as Kulikov is a stud). Mike Weaver is a rock out there, it was awesome watching him battle with Chara in Boston's zone, the guy backs down from nobody. Great skater as well.

Shawn Matthias is a spitting image of Dubinsky as well. He looked awesome.

I think Florida's success this year is riding off a line that will cool down severely as the season progresses, and I'm not sure if they will even make the playoffs, but they have some damn good talent for the future.

And even before his penalty shot, Samuelsson was a steaming pile of **** tonight.

I don't think personnel is the issue on the PP. Just look at the fact that Tampa is even worse than us. Do they have a personnel problem?

I see no reason why Richards, MDZ, Step, Gaborik, Callahan can't be a very effective PP unit.

So apparently Marty will not be retiring at the end of the year. Had a feeling this would happen...

Quote:
Cancel that retirement party. The NHL’s winningest-ever goalie told The Post yesterday he is now leaning toward playing as a 40-year-old next year.

“I’m having fun,” said Martin Brodeur, expected to be in goal for the Devils tonight when the Jets visit Prudential Center.

“I feel differently about it now than I did last summer, or at the start of the season,” Brodeur said. “It’s not 100 percent, but I’m definitely leaning toward coming back next year.”

Who knew that a .894 save percentage could be so fun? Looking forward to his continued demise, and the mayhem that will ensue if Lou doesn't want him back after this season.

It's gonna be quite the struggle beating them out. We have to get our PP together among other things.

Wonder what effect Marty returning has, if any, on Parise's decision to stay or go.

It should be an interesting summer regarding Parise. He'll receive a big contract from someone, just not sure who. There are rumors that he will be Detroit's #1 free agent target. I think the Red Wings will have more cap space than usual to work with this summer so they could land Parise or one of the other big names. If he wants the big pay day but also a chance to contend every year for a Cup, the Red Wings would be a team that gives him both.

Good. One less team we have to worry about competing for the division with.
