Rogers was a nothing prospect and Petiot wasn't going anywhere with the Leafs while Kolzig and Heward were both injured. So, essentially, the Leafs took a 4th round pick as compensation for taking two injured players off Tampa's cap.

Too early to make a call one way or another. In 2 years he might only be worth 2-3mil. Or he could be retired.

Tom Renney says Tom Gilbert won't be back until after the All Star Break. He hopes Ryan Whitney will return prior to that.

Tom Renney says Jordan Eberle's injury "doesn't sound like it's going to be a real long time" but he hadn't seen MRI results yet

When Carcillo used the boards as a weapon to slam Gilbert into the boards, Gilbert injured his knee and an ankle. The ankle is what's giving him trouble.

Gilbert didn't have the MRI until yesterday. They were probably waiting to get home to do the MRI. Perhaps they thought he could be back soon.

Whitney visited a foot specialist last week. Any news on the outcome of that visit?

I heard he is having both feet removed, that should solve the problem.

Yes because it really would have made much of a difference if he was gone for the year or about to step back in. The only positive of Whitney coming back into the lineup as well as Barker is that it will put Petry back to the minors where he should be developing.

You're comparing him to Dave Bolland or Jordan Staal?

There is so much wrong with this team.

An Eager playing his best game consistently is a great 3rd or 4th line player; he's been extremely effective at times.

Other times he's been invisible.

You want to tell me that Malkin is a 2nd liner too?

Jordan staal is not a 3rd liner, bolland may not be either.

WHY?!

Let him sit one extra game and get a full extra week off. Have him work on special drills to get some of the flow back into his game.

Don't mean to turn this into an Eager thread but this is the truth. He's got the physical tools (size, speed, hands) to be a perfect role player but he is terribly incosistent and doesn't know how to "pick his spots". Not surprising that he has bounced around so much in his career if it is the mental/attitude portion of the game that is holding him back.

Didnt hear a thing, I expect the media will get something out over the next few days/early next week. He didnt get a ton of icetime but I liked his ability to calmly move the puck. Definitely a needed upgrade on our blueline, wasnt watching closely enough to comment on his skating.
