The Vancouver Canucks have traded G Roberto Loungo and C S. Schneider to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for D Ryan Whitney, LW Magnus Paajarvi, D Colton Teubert and G Yann Denis.
The Canucks have also traded C Manny Malhotra and a 2013 3rd round pick to New Jersey for RW David Clarkson and a 2013 5th round pick.
In the first trade, we feel we acquire an excellent offensive defenseman, a young well rounded winger with lots of potential, and a promising young defenseman. We wish Luongo well playing in front of a young oilers team that hopes to replicate their success from the 1980s when Luongo's idol, Grant Fuhr, manned the pipes. Perhaps we should have been more concerned about moving Luongo within our division, but oh well.
In exchange for Malhotra and an upgraded pick, we are pleased to acquire some needed grit to our top 9 forward group, and grit that can play. While we don't expect him to score as many goals as he did last year, he should fit in nicely moving around the lineup.
Vancouver is now interested in acquiring a very high end winger. We are willing to trade one of our quality defenseman, picks, prospects, and a forward or two depending on what a team is looking for. Vancouver also seeks a 2nd or 3rd line 2 way centre to play on the club's third line.

Hey...Blues GM here. In regards to the penalties...IMO they are fine. It's just that the super human poke check needs to be kept in check, so a penalty for a poke check here and here doesn't bother me. It you are facing a forward head-on, you don't usually get a penalty. It's more likely when you are at an angle.
Also, I am pretty active....but as a teacher, I finish early, and like to play 330pm to 6pm on weekdays...not always, but often.
Lastly, St Louis is looking to a star player on offense...and is willing to give up roster players and/or prospects.
Nice...I'm glad we're adding a reserve list, since it seems like there are already some inactive gm's out there. Over half the games still need to be played, and people aren't going on chatzy or responding to xbox or hf messages.
I understand it is early, but this is all part of a league...and this much inactivity is a concern. So hopefully we're able to weed out those inactive gm's, so we can have a fun & active league.
