I don't know about that . We lost twice in a row against a sharks team that had just traded Douglas Murray .
Well, there's an argument to be made that trading Murray made the Sharks stronger, while it's tough to imagine Dallas getting stronger while shipping out Roy, Jagr and Morrow. However, looking at last night's game, I'm not counting on Dallas making it any easier than that.
From what I remember, he is a Cogs type player, fast but smallish. Better at center, but not so good defense. But that was a while ago, don't know how he's been these days
He's known as an ok penalty killer at least, and defenitely has better hands and playmaking ability than Cogliano. He's also a very good face off man. I imagine they'd prefer to trade himi elsewhere than Anaheim though.
Read some rumor about Rotislav Klesla being available from Phoenix. Dude has size and likes to hit, good in own end of the ice. He has one more year left in his contact but his salary isn't that bad. Klesla would take over Lydman's spot next season and if Lindholm or Vatanen outplay him, he could be traded away (unless his play drops dramatically). What do you guys think? Too bad that he's on a divisional rival but Anaheim and Phoenix have traded players before. Klesla would be a nice addition to the defence.
