Quick scouting report for you guys....

Nikitin has a BOMB for a shot. He will get his points. Really good at moving the puck as well.

As far as defensively, he is solid on his man and makes a good first pass. The problem with the guy is his positioning is GARBAGE. He basically deflects shots into his own net. He has no idea what to do when the opposing team has the puck in his defensive zone.

Other than that one big flaw, he is actually an effective player. I think the Blues come away well, but you have a great 3rd pairing, decent 2nd pairing d-man.

Anyone want to give me more about Russel? He seems to have given us fits over the last few years but don't know the whole story.

Wisnewski is not being traded.

But thank Gordie Howe, Russell is gone.

Has to be a move to clear room for another d-man. If not then just fire Howson immediately.

Oh, it wasn't serious.

But neither is calling Tyutin our best defenseman a serious statement...right?

Losing Russell - Good. He is at best a #6 dman, most nights he's a #7 or AHL'r.

As for dealing Fedor - GMSH was an idiot and signed him to a ridiculous 6 year extension this summer.

Overall defenseman? Yes. No hes not a "offensive dman" that doesnt put up points. Wiz is like -12 the last 4 games, he isnt our best dman.

I just have a problem with claiming that anyone is our best or worst defenseman.

Our two best are 3rd and 4th dmen at best.

To me this kind of feels like Howson saying to the ownership, "Look! Shiny!" and ownership is going all Dug, like "Squirrel!" and Howson gets to keep his job a little longer.

If Toots is traded for a goalie then Howson should be fired immediately.

He signed a guy to a bad contract and ignored a glaring need for the team, do a deal like that now means he has no idea what he's doing.

Yea I dont want to get rid of either of them. I want to ADD to them. We have forwards that can do that. Keep making minor moves that wont do **** though Scott.

Ding ding ding! This idiot shouldn't be allowed to keep any moves, even a simple salary dump.

JPMac, for the love of God, please fire him before he makes a trade we regret!

If you thought THIS offseason was a major overhaul for our team, just wait until this offseason. Heads are gunna roll.

Tyutin for Nabby is the hot rumor apparently. Won't be announced until after the NYI game ends, as it is now in OT. We'll see if that happens.
