Smith wont be a back up with the price tag he will command.

Cautionary tale?
I don't know.. Phoenix plays really good defense and Tampa not so much.

Also, IF he goes to free agency, we'd be one of only a handful of teams showing legitimate interest. NJ, Calgary (if Kipper is traded), Edmonton, maybe TB (but they traded for Lindback already, and Smith has already been there, may not want to go back), NYI (but they may resign Nabokov), and a handful of other teams.

So he's an Ontario guy, and we're one of probably 3-4 teams that would show legitimate interest. I think we'd have a great shot at signing him.

And thats the other side of the coin on why I dont want Smith. Im not convinced hes anything better then just a good goalie. That system makes goalies look like All Stars

This will also be Smith "home run" contract. Is anyone comfortable with paying him 4-5m for 5 years or so?

What would everyone think about a deal for Tyler Myers built around Gardiner?

Yeah forget about trading young guys within the division. I never want to do that ever again.

No chance.

I think Myers is overrated and the deal he received was absolutely ludicrous.

Babchuk or sarich both R defence

Feaster says they're available. What would it take to get babchuk? I think he's younger.
Are they any good?

DeKeyser Roll-Out

With NCAA free agent Andrej Sustr signing with Tampa last week, the top available collegiate free agent is now Western Michigan defender Danny DeKeyser.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reported via Twitter that DeKeyser might also be close to making a decision on his NHL future.

While McKenzie stated that the Toronto Maple Leafs had high interest in DeKeyser under former GM Brian Burke, the front runners are now believed to be Detroit, St. Louis, Anaheim and Edmonton.

NHL execs are expected to make pitches to DeKeyser's camp in person in Toronto mid-week with the defender expected to have his equipment ready to immediately join whichever organization he chooses to sign with.

It’s not just the games. Trade speculation and actual transactions are heating up. Jarome Iginla officially wants out of Calgary, or so it seems, and the weirdness of Dallas trading away its heart-and-soul captain for futures while occupying a playoff berth in the west is perplexing.

There’s going to be more of all of this. The Maple Leafs, at the very least, should be in the playoff race until the final week, which is something new. Trade-wise, few expect anything big, but GM Dave Nonis is nosing around, and the addition of depth players and possibly insurance in the form of a veteran goalie make sense.

So pittsburgh made two fairly big moves in 2 days.

Can we do something now?

Depending on the price paid by Pittsburgh, I would have loved Murray here. I think he would have rounded our top 6 really well.

He wasn't very liked in San Jose from what I've read but still a solid defenseman, especially in the stretch.

SJ fans seem very happy to get rid of him. Apparently 2 2nd round picks or a 2nd and 3rd will be going back.

Well I'm glad we didn't go for him then. We need to keep our top 60/90 picks.
