Well... defintiely BR is not a valid source. They spew some complete garbage from time to time. As for Rossi - he's been as good as TIOPS. More bad than good in my opinion.

So as of right now.. expect nothing to happen but a potential Niskanen re-sign and drafting in our normal spot come Friday.

Oh, i always thought they were like experts that knew what teams were going to do and got some information they could share.

People act like Geno was giving Neal open nets. For a lot of those 40 goals he put the puck on his stick & Neal did the rest. Radulov can't carry his own line anymore than Neal. He is far from the superior talent this board makes him out to be.

That sad part is I'll never be able to properly illustrate how right I am because Neal will be in the NHL & Radulov will be in some 4th tier league.
First it was 3rd tier league, now 4th.

Gaustad would be nice, I would even try and snag Colin Wilson and the rights to TooToo.
Not even close. Just because he's a RFA doesn't mean his value is any less (than say he had a 1 yr deal). The only way the Jets consider moving Kane would be for Staal/Neal/Letang. As Staal is the only expendable piece we have, it would be him.

I guess that's the potential silver lining but we need several more guys at the top of the FA list signed for that to happen IMO. And it will be helpful if a few of them get badly overpaid. You get a couple guys like Kuba and Kubina getting $5M and Martin's 5 won't look as bad.
