What if they move Phoenix to Quebec or Markham gets an expansion team? Columbus or Detroit would have to go right back with the West teams.

Not feet either. Ankles. He's had at least 2 surgeries on the same ankle and his recovery has been painful and frustrating. His ankle is just fine .

Re: whitney

Never thought I would say this but I would rather have Andy "Apple Turnover" Ference than that washed up stiff on this team.

Whitney has no heart or desire anymore...maybe it is the injuries, contract or that he'd rather tweet all day!

Would be interesting to see if Streit and Briere could help fix the PP as well.

Streit would be another good pickup especially with how horrendous the bottom pairing has been this year.

Panthers haven't won a playoff series in 17 years. There's been one season in their entire existence where they've won one. What has there been to build off? A fluke playoff appearance last year? Something ELSE to consider. The Panthers have never played their main rivals (TB) in the playoffs. Ever. So that good old fashioned hatred that Bruins fans feel towards the Habs and others? Where would that have come from? Regular season meetings in November?

Of course the BOG is shortsighted as hell. They take someone's expansion fees, but won't revenue share so they can grow these fanbases properly in areas where people weren't born loving the game. That means rinks (ice and roller), subsidizing playing fees, etc. That's how you grow a fanbase in large American cities and down the road get progressively larger TV deals. That's how the Panthers current situation could benefit the NHL. Instead we get "Here's hockey, play under our terms, and love it now" Typical NHL business strategy. Can't see more than 5 minutes in front of their face.

I would really hate to see that. Briere is such a ***** and I would HATE to root for him, as talented as he is.

Plus I wouldn't want to give the Flyers are prospects that turn out to good players.

Bruin will never pay 13 mil of whatever to buy him out so no need to worry...His contract is a cap killer.

$5m in cash left on his deal after this season, so about $3.3m to buy him out. And you'd have to because he has a NTC and knows 1. we can't keep him with the cap going down and 2. He can get more than $1.7 over 2 seasons if he's bought out.

Another thing is homer seems to get the better of almost every trade he makes, I have faith in chia, but holmgren knows how to deal.

Briere is an HF member so be careful on raging on one of us

Probably to Quebec. My guess is that's at least somewhat forward thinking. Works for the Bruins. Less travel.

Would be awesome to see an original six only day with Chicago and NYR playing against each other TOR-DET and BOS-MTL
