Leopold to StL for a 2nd and conditional 5th... I've been hoping for a dman, but man are they getting big returns. If Leopold and Murray get 2nds, Smid must be worth a 1st. At this point I hope the Habs stand pat.
Habs and Hawks? Both should be buyers so I don't get what kind of trade could happen between the 2. I wouldn't mind Boilig for the 4th line and Bickell for the 3rd, but Chiacago has no reason to give him up.
Gauthier is just a scout. You can pretty much connections with every team in the NHL if you go as far as making one through scouts+management.
Really, it means nothing. Scouts scout teams, that's their job, doesn't mean anything is brewing.
Also, we're both in positions to buy not sell, so it doesn't make any sense.
Might be exactly like you said, but I don't know, sometimes just need for need swaps happens, even while respective teams are in good shape. What would help, if anything would happen, is that they're in different conferences. But who knows...
Renaud Lavoie just said there's a San Jose scout at the game tonight, and that Boyle and Clowe (fluke season, or finished ? I don't know, we really need that kind of player) might be on their way out. Of course, just words, but hey, wednesday everything will be finished til draft day, better have fun while it lasts
Unless you're 4 days away from the trade deadline and you're the best team in the league, than it CLEARLY means something is going on.
If the Hawks offer Teravainen ( whom Bergevin and Timmins were really high on) for Desharnais, do you do the trade?
That trade heads up is very tempting but I'm not sure that I would.
If you look at the standings, if we secure our 2nd seed, there's no reason to think we wouldn't be able to reach the ECF.
With a bit of luck, we might even have an easy passage to the CF. If all the top 4 seeds win, we get to face the weakest team because the SE division is so weak.
So unless there's another trade made to bring us depth, not sure I do this.
