How'd you figure that? He'd obviously just demand a trade elsewhere...

Demanding a trade is a locker room distraction. Dany Heatley will not make our 2nd or 3rd line better. The only player you could make a case that would improve our 1st line(in place of Heatley) is Bouchard, but you'd definitely be weakening our already terrible secondary scoring putting him there.

Yeo's hands are tied alot tighter than people realize. I'm not saying he's perfect but there's no simple fix to this team. Its not 1 player, its not the system, its not leadership.

i think Granlund has showed very good chemistry with Mikko on the national team, and he is not playing center anyway...

but i guess the fact he hasn't earned it will make most think he would actually be detrimental to the 1st line, and more importantly it will prevent this option to be explored anytime soon, albeit worthy of a try imo.

did he? i watched the highlights on nhl.com and there was nothing about it.

When did it happen?

Brodin hit the far post low glove side, think it was off the rush, 1st or 2nd period?

Butch hit the fattest pipe ever, rang off the far post and then crossbar high glove with a huge slapper on the PP, late in the 3rd. He actually hit it so flush and hard that it bounced right back to his stick blade and he corralled it to continue the play. Softest hands.

Why two weeks? We're almost to the 25% of the season (12 games)
