Well of course its all speculation, guessing, hope, BS... Isn't that the point?? Of course none of it will ever happen...None of us are GM, unless Tambi is on these boards, in which case nothing would still get done because he enjoys shooting the s**t more than improving a team of hockey players! Your talking loud but you ain't saying nothing.

I just think a player like Bergeron would benefit this team more than a player like Eberle in terms of winning hockey games.

In terms of highlight reel goals and being the magnificent ******* that Eberle is...well that's a whole different story

Centres will heal.. RNH back by Saturday, Belanger back by Sunday... so we will have RNH, Gags, Belanger, AHL call up (VV most likely).

I am fine with that for a while, I think they need to see what the market is like for a top 4 defence man, even if they are a UFA in the summer. Whitney has just not been able to get the job done this year...

If someone offers you anything of significance for Whitney I think at this point you take it.. The best case scenario that is some what realistic for me is the following:

-Trade Whitney and some picks/prospects for an upgrade on D
-Sign Jason Arnott for the year and have him come in healthy and ready to go. Fills in for the injuries than moves to wing once Horcoff is back.

Tim Thomas to Isles. Safe to assume they needed to get to the cap floor?


Per Katie Strang

#Isles Can confirm Isles have acquired goaltender Tim Thomas via trade

https://twitter.com/KatieStrangESPN/...42051048394752

Further more, it was cap related

Move is cap-related -- #Isles needed to be over the floor by tomorrow, needed insurance against not being cap compliant the entire season.

https://twitter.com/StapeNewsday/sta...42026603974656


Gave up a 2nd in 14 or 15.

So I assume that's why NYI was picking up every living creature that hit the waiver wire there for a while... to help get up to the cap floor.

I wonder if Phoenix is having similar issues... maybe we can "help" them out with Whitney.

I was thinking the same. The worse part is it's not like this is a 7th or a bust of a prospect, it's a 2nd. A very valuable asset in today's NHL.

Wonder what Bettman thinks of this way to circumvent the cap

The Boston Bruins only get a draft pick from the Islanders for Tim Thomas if he reports to them or any other team if NYI trade his rights.

Okay that makes more sense from the Isles pov.

Yep. I feel bad for the fans when the franchise would rather let Parenteau walk, and then waste a 2nd round pick for nothing instead of paying $4 million

Which is ideal for NYI. No acquisition price. NYI can toll contract to next year if they like, continue to get cap benefit in perpetuity.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie
Or NYI can let contract expire at end of season and be done with it. Their call. Thomas has no intent to return to play at this time.


So hypothetically in 8 years from now Thomas could still be getting the Isles to the cap floor.

Next up Chris Pronger to the Isles.

Boston won't see the 2nd round pick. Thomas will not report to the Isles.

Hypothetically ya, but if Thomas retires so he can get his pension(not sure if he's played 400 games) then its done.

Edit: He's at 378 so nevermind. Would think the league will close this loophole up quick. Helps the NHLPA too as Thomas is taking a paycheque from someone else the Isles could have signed for 4 Million.

I feel sorry for Tavares and the fans. That team needs a new owner and GM stat.

He'd just be better to come back in 8 years and get the 3mil that is owed to him.

Actually I wonder, because 35+ count no matter what, so if a player what happens when said player is suspended.

If RoR wants 5mil per year I am not interested in him, that is way too much. Boyle would be a nice addition as a centreman for the 3rd or 4th line with his size. A line of PRV, Boyle, Harti would be very nice.

So the Isles will aim to acquire every player that won't play for them for their 2nd.

First it was Vish, and now Thomas.

One more crappy game and Whitney for Ethan Moreau would be a lot more realistic

I still think Whitney goes to Detroit at some point. They are thin on D and they have a bottom 6 forward that would be a great fit in Edm.

Their top line winger who has 1 more point than Whits? Morrow has been garbage this year. Don't even want.

I tend to believe that if it's Whitney leaving a D is coming back. It would probably be a multi-player deal Whitney+FWD for a D upgrade.
