Why do I have this weird sense of deja vu?

Seriously, though, wasn't Tokarski supposed to be a bit of a hotshot goalie at one point?

Is he a heavyweight enforcer?

I like it. Desjardins was terrible this year in Hamilton and quite frankly, was never as close to the NHL as some people here felt.

Tokarski is 23 and still has a shot at being a NHL goalie. Pretty solid numbers last season, bit of a decline this year.

I thought Bergevin was chosen as GM, not McGuire.

Neither goalie is very good.

Waiting for the Kassian announcement.

The Desjardins fan club must be hurting.

Love this trade. Was hot as hell in the WJC a couple of years back, and he has NHL potential in my opinion. TB has been giving 2 assets for Desjardins in the last few years. Not that good for them.

WOW what a steal for you guys, Tokarski is nearly NHL ready (but wasn't that impressive this year) and could very well be your back-up next year.
Desjardins will never be a good goalie in the NHL.

Thats the very first bad trade Steve Yzerman made as a Tampa GM

Good trade based just on the need. The intention is good. Good Job MB.

Tokarski, who the Lightning selected 122nd overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, has played in 33 games with the Syracuse Crunch thsi season, posting an 18-8-4 record with a 2.46 GAA.

Desjardins is 7-13-2 with a 2.94 GAA this season with the Hamilton Bulldogs.
I'm guessing he'll be the backup next season.

Still won a gold medal, more than anything Desjardins won at this stage. He won everywhere and is much younger than C.D.

What the hell? He won the calder last year, no? He's still young and has just had a bad start to the season. Great acquisition! Gonna be a solid backup sooner rather than later

That's cool. I thought Desjardins would be better than he has been. Well, I actually do think he is better than he has played. But things haven't worked out on so many fronts for the Bulldogs, and that's just another one.

Tokarski can be #3 next year, or challenge for a backup spot. He's almost there. He is on his last year of waiver exemption and an RFA, however, so challenging for the backup spot would be ideal for him next year. It gives us some insurance again if Budaj isn't re-signed.

He was indeed pretty high profile in junior with Team Canada posting and Memorial Cup heroics, so many of us have seen him in those. He isn't ideal size, but has a reputation as a "big game goalie".

I like it! Hope the Habs qualify him and keep him in the mix for next season.

Of course he won the gold medal, doesn't mean he was good.
