Good pick up for St. Louis.

Redden can probably still make an impact at the NHL level... he's just not worth $6M/year.

glad Redden hooked up with someone. He even gets a shot on a contender. good for him.
Islanders still have 1 or 2 contract slots open I think, they may not be done.

Not everybody, just defenseman. I don't know what he's thinking though.

Surprised anyone wanted him. Hopefully he can put up some respectable numbers.

Why did the Canadiens want Simmonds in particular? Do you thinks it's a, how do I put this politically correctly, a publicity and appealing to a wider demographic thing? He namely isn't a player teams would condition trades upon for his playing skills, yet he is of course good enough to not make the trade seem lopsided.

Because he is a right-handed shooter?

It's pretty obvious they want to appeal more to right-handed people.

Oh OK, I didn't know that. But just to make it clear, I wasn't saying that'd be the only reason, but it seems to me it could play a significant role.

Yeah, I know, it's easy to make what I suggested sound ridiculous, since of course no one would ever do that. We all know it's just about passion for hockey. But I've seen plenty of threads on the marketability of PK Subban and him being black was one of the reasons for why people thought they could market him even better. I remember, for example, a show on captains that I think the NHL Network produced a couple of years ago, and when it was time to have Iginla on, a chunk of the show focused on his race and the role it played for the young kids to see him in the NHL.

I'm not saying I'm right, but I don't think it's anywhere near ridiculous to think this could be a significant reason for them asking that. You can carry on with the sarcasm, though.

For what it's worth, he's probably left handed. In Canada (So I have read in the history forum), people are taught to keep the dominant hand on the end of the stick for more puckhandling control. In the US we do things the opposite way.

that'd be correct. my cousin plays hockey left handed but everything else he does is done right handed. I never done it that way, but I am no where near as good as he is

I guess it depends on who teaches you. I have never heard that in any of the minor hockey schools or programs I participated in. We were always taught to use the handedness that was most comfortable.

Almost everyone I played with, and play with now, that shoots right handed (myself included) has a dominant right hand.

Maybe it's just a high level thing? I sure as hell can't do it. I can't elevate a slap shot more than a foot off the ground shooting right handed, I don't think I'd even be able to move a puck/ball straight forward shooting left. It'd probably go about 8 inches to the side, stop, and laugh at my inadequacy.

There is a joke in there somewhere...

I doubt it because you'll pick your handedness when you first start playing (ice or ball) and, in Canada, that typically happens around 5 years old.

Once you're settled, you don't change the way you shoot.

Growing up, when we would play street hockey there would be probably a dozen kids who shot left handed, and maybe one or two who shot right. Most of us were right handed overall though.

Growing up in the States it was pretty much the opposite. Most kids on my team were righties and I was one of the few lefties. My dad had me holding the stick as a lefty since I was about 2. I think baseball might have had something to do with it as well. I played hockey well before I started playing baseball, but when I finally did start playing baseball, it was just natural to have my hands positioned in a similar manner. Considering most kids in america play some form of baseball at a young age before playing hockey I don't think it would be crazy to think it carries over to hockey.
