Yeah, let's see what happens. They have options. Moving Timmo would be the most logical. Homer obviously doesn't care about the players feelings.

Don't see why anybody would think this is a bad move. You're potentially getting, in my opinion, one of the top 2 D men in the game. It'd be near impossible to get him otherwise and you're risking him signing long-term with the Preds but who cares, go for it! He's exactly what Philly was missing after Pronger went down. Worry about signing guys later. Seriously, people are worrying about signing Voracek as a reason to not get one of the most dominant d men in the NHL?

What I love about the Voracek thing is the fallout. If he gets moved for anything more than a single 2nd, makes you really wonder if Bowman got bent over in our cap crunch. It will be interesting to see.

Really? You're going to say that Detroit loses more than Nashville this off-season? Stuart didn't want to be in Detroit and Lidstrom was 42 and clearly not the same D-man he once was. Nashville just lost more.

Sure, and another man's trash is another dude's treasure, but I'm not going to think highly of someone that covets some cheese stuck to the roof of a discarded pizza box.

He didn't say the biggest loser. Just that they lost out on signings and the like. He is German and his English can be a little abrupt. So relax please.

Did anyone post that it's 14 years and $110M? No way Nashville doesn't match that.

They still might not...

@DNFlyers
Spending $26M in one calendar yr, NSH would be forking over 16% of entire franchise net worth ($163M in '11 accd to Forbes) to match offer

Hawks have not taken a step back. Same team and likely better without Bruno, Morrison, ect. I don't understand how you don't know this.

Wasted roster spot and $$$ on Oduya

No improvements to roster (Especially G)

Downgraded coaching wise

Let's get a look at him for a full season before saying the team is better with him.

Not really just a bunch of hope that young kids step up (Saad) or dont regress (Stalberg , Shaw)

And in net the Hawks are in worse shape with Crawford getting exposed and Emery finished (Such an awful deal bringing him back)

I have seen nothing from hawks to make me think this team is improved

It's not like this team lost it's #1 Dman or in Nashville's case, could lose #1 and #2.

The Blues. I don't see them repeating that type of success. They were exposed in the playoffs.

Emery is a capable backup! Yeah, capable of putting his equipment on and waddling his ass to the crease at the start of each period.

With Brian Elliott in net

No doubt much better team with Halak in playoffs then Elliott

And wish the Hawks could have gotten exposed in 2nd round instead of 1st round ,, And hey its not like the Blues lost to cup champion or anything

Losing to Kings in round 2 is not getting exposed , Losing to Coyotes in 1st round with some of the worst goaltending the NHL has seen in recent memory in OT of game 3 and 4 is getting exposed

Ok, Blues were exposed yet our roster is all good, we just ran into a hot goalie in the playoffs.

If anyone thinks signing Oduya was a positive for this team, they either didn't watch him in his last 15 games of the regular season and playoffs or have an off center view of what a quality d man is for the amount of money he was signed for. Journeyman who avoids contact and is decent on the PP which was 27th. Stan knocked it out of the park this offseason.

What about the players playing better? (Kane, Keith, Leddy, Hammer, Bolland, Bickell, Frolik, etc?) Is that not possible?

In net Crawford could most definitely improve, and Emery is a capable back up as he proved last year.

This team is improved over last years, whether you agree or not.

out:
Brunette
OD
Lepisto

in:
Saad
Brookbank
Oduya

That is improvement right there.
