Read an interesting article that said there should be two different awards for best defenseman. One for best offensive and one for best defensive. I really like that idea because people like Karlsson are great offensively but not that great defensively

I don't see how that would help. Then the best overall defenseman in the league has no award. Weber would never win because he's neither the best defensive or best offensive defenseman in the league, but alot of people think he is the best defenseman.

I'm actually kinda surprised Karlsson won the Chuck Norris Memorial last nite, as he doesn't really play defence

So, Garth Snow apparently offered the entire Islanders draft (rounds 1 through 7) to the Blue Jackets to move from 4th to 2nd, just so Snow could grab Murray.

And in a competition between two really, really bad GMs, I'm not sure which one looks worse. Snow for offering that insane amount to simply move two spaces or Howson for refusing the insane amount?

Probably Howson. I mean...why does that guy still have a job? Terrible contracts, bad decisions, the problems with trying to ask too much for Nash, turning down all the Isles draft picks for two spots...

Gotta be Howson. They are trying to rebuild and they turn that down??

Yeah, I don't know much about the prospects, but the difference between Murray and Reinhart couldn't have been that much, could it?

Frankly, based off name alone, I'd prefer Reinhart. Murray sounds like someone's grandfather.

Howson looks like an idiot for turning that down. Nothing screams "Fire me" more than that. How he retains a job is beyond my comprehension.

Plus, now my pipeline for GM Connected is comparably ******.

Aaron Portzline reports that the only place Luongo will agree to be traded is back to the Florida Panthers. Southeast Division should be very interesting next season...well, except for Winnipeg.

Aaron Portzline ‏@Aportzline
Luongo using the power of his no-trade to "steer" a trade to #Panthers as much as possible at this point in off-season.

Aaron Portzline ‏@Aportzline
Only place Luongo is willing to be traded, as of today, is back to the Florida #Panthers.

Aaron Portzline ‏@Aportzline
Told by very good source #Canucks G Roberto Luongo has - to this point -- declined to waive no-trade clause to go to #Blackhawks or #Leafs.

If Kane does want out and Pavelec does jump to the KHL, Winnipeg could be in the running for MacKinnon.

First someone wants to play for Carolina (Staal) and now somebody actually wants to play for the Florida Panthers?

More competition, better division. Luongo it's not a guy for big media market obviously.

Gotta figure the media frenzy in Vancouver made him pine for Florida. Surprisingly, some players DON'T like their every move analyzed and criticized.

With all the crap Luongo has taken over the last 2-3 years, I don't blame him for a second for wanting to go back to Florida. No media scrutiny whatsoever.

Even better, they've locked up Pavelec and will continue to wallow in sub-playoff limbo.

He's going to end up a "baby daddy" and lose a lot of his paycheck. Hopefully someone can mentor this kid. Sounds like he really needs it.

It really sounded like he was just fooling around in good humor. It's not like he was out pulling a Patrick Kane.

Lightning trade for Benoit Pouliot and then don't give him a qualifying offer. What?

Meh. They traded almost nothing for him and by not qualifying him, Pouliot doesn't have arbitration rights. They still exclusively can negotiate with him until 7/1 I believe? (Dave or someone will have to validate that). My guess is they still work out a deal.
