Then was he a healthy scratch for a few games? Were they on the fence about keeping him?

It appears that Tim Thomas has been traded to the Islanders.

Fun fact: Garth Snow is the first GM in NHL history to have his own cap hit on the books.

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.

So is Gary Bettman going to strip draft picks after this blatant cap circumvention or is he only a tough guy when it's not Jeremy Jacobs?

If anyone is at fault it is Cheap Islanders and Chiarelli is pretty sharp dude at being cap compliant. I for one would love the draft pick but that is just a bonus as now Boston can defintly add to there roster at trade deadline or before

lol.

I know DownGoesBrown is a comedian, but he is sorta right here.

It isn't really fair that the Devils got punished for signing a player to a contract, while the Isles are blatantly constructing a hockey trade just to avoid spending real money to reach the cap floor. This is as good as it gets in cap circumvention, nothing will be made out of it though.

Anyone else see the extremely questionable calls from the Lightning/Devils game? Penalty fest and then Boucher gets an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

I blame the league.

I like that they finally starting whistling the headshots, I've only been calling for that to happen for over 10 years. The problem is they're calling TOO much, even the shoulder on shoulders if they see alot of head/neck movement on the hit. That's the definition of reactionary. Yet, those plays happen so fast, is it really possible for them to catch every nuance of every play?

If so, they need to be trained better. Looking how bad its been the last few seasons we're all gonna have to be patient.

They should move Hiller ASAP. Maybe a team like Toronto would bite.

Talked about stacked at tender.

Hard trying to figure out the return on Hiller. Burke, who first signed Hiller, no longer the GM of the Leafs. Toronto traded for Giguere 1/31/10, the day after Hiller signed his deal with the Ducks.

Hehe, that might worry a few NHL lawyers.

You can't collude with yourself etc. It opens up all kind of cap circumvention problems if the GM and the player is the same person.

LAK announce acquisition of defenceman Keaton Ellerby from FLA for a 5th-round draft choice.


great value for a former first round pick from 2007... i was hoping Sather would do a trade like this low risk high reward.. great move for the Kings.

I feel bad for the caps. They had a great goalie in Varly. An AHL goalie has a good playoff run, and they decide he's a #1. They trade Variy.
Turns out the new goalie isn't that good, but luckily they signed Vokoun to help them. Next playoffs, a another AHLer has a great playoff run, and they decide he's a #1. Turns out he's not bad, he's terrible.

Now they're stuck with 2 AHL goalies

You mentioned Boyle for Ellerby (as did maybe one or two others, I believe). He got traded for a 5th. I don't understand why Glen isn't offering a 4th or a 5th + a cond. 7th or something. Loktionov went for a 5th. Lovejoy went for a 5th. Now Ellerby for a 5th. At least either of the Dmen could have helped our bottom pairing. Not sure why we don't do something like this. These are decent young guys who will get a better chance to play in their new locations and will likely cement themselves as third line/bottom pairing guys, getting moved for extremely cheap. We need to be in on this kind of activity.

Maybe they should get in on the Roberto Luongo sweepstakes.

Agreed, I would gladly give up a 5th for a solid bottom pairing D. Gilroy had another good game, but he followed his last good game up with a really subpar one against the Devs. Not sure he'll be consistently solid, and I'd definitely throw a fifth around for a guy who is game in and game out good enough.
