By the way, the Setoguchi trade happening right after makes me think the Devils were looking into Setoguchi as a fall-back if Ryder went to the Bruins or perhaps the Jets were trying to bid for Ryder as well.
Don't be a ****** to Moore his wife died and he took a break from the league. I will not be able to dislike him, ever.
Yeah Moore is a good player who went through a really tough year, as much as i dislike the Rangers i wish him nothing but the best. Hopefully he'll have a successful stint with them and be able to get a nice contract in the next off-season.
I'm ecstatic to hear we're trying to make a trade or two, i think Lou realizes the redundancy of having both Volchenkov and Salvador back there, hopefully we'll get lucky and someone will do us a favor and take them off our hands.
I also love that trade for Winnipeg, they're quietly assembling a very young and skilled team; for a second round pick Setoguchi is an absolute steal, although he does have a tendency to be very streaky and disappear for lengthy stretches.
Clowe is still a very big question mark due to his concussion history. They don't just vanish, you know. Even if he's 100%.
I don't think that is necessarily true. Look at Bergeron and Crosby. I know Lou would not have given out such a contract if his concussions were as bad as they have been made out to be on this forum. I bet Lou saw something to indicate that the 50-60 pt scoring, gritty top 6 Clowe was still there and a injury ridden year has not changed that. I could see this being the Zubrus signing 2.0 but better since instead of replacing a 2007 Gomez with a lesser player this is an upgrade.
