Agreed

Yeah I don't know, Prust is actually a better regular player then Tootoo

Unless of course you go with Prust-Belanger-Eager and leave Petrell as the #13, which I'd be 100% okay with. I just don't see the Oil doing that.

Now that this draft is over our picks for next years draft will be wanted. We have two 2nd round picks and I think they can be used to get dmen like Methot. If we are lucky and get Schultz we only have room for 1 more dman.

Methot or Franson would be a good pick up and I think a 2nd and lower prospect would get then done.

Hopefully, because if not Burke just got a potential 30 goal scorer for a second pairing stay at home defenseman.

Schenn play over 300 games in the NHL and I still don't know if he can play in the top 4 defensive squad or not.

Overpayment by Philly, but we will see if it works out.

Philly is praying that Schenn gets back to the form that he had only one season ago.

If he couldn't hit 30 goals on the Flyers I doubt he will hit 30 goals on the Leafs.

I dunno, the Leafs are going to give him premium ice-time most likely.

Kinda thought JVR would be moved to the Ducks for Bobby Ryan, so much for that.

Not a good trade for Philly

Holmgren is a little crazy. It's like he throws darts on a board to decide trades and signings.

Eklund with this doozy on his site...

*Hearing Gagner and Omark for Yandle+

Mind you...It followed this informative post...

*Flyers and Leafs are reportedly in discussions.. I am told it is NOT JvR for Schenn.

We can only wish that we're signing his praises at the end of the day.

I guess that the next move of Brian Burke is going to move Kulemin to another team.

Why the love fest for JVR? He is sitting around a 0.5 PPG with injury concerns. People hear realize Gagner is sitting well above that right?

Trying to deal JVR in a potential Nash deal is one thing, trading him here makes me think Philly wanted to get rid of him for some reason. I know there have been some rumblings about his health, so I made that guess earlier. But if it's not that, something else is going on IMO.

This is hilarious.

Eklund just literally proved the stereotype that the opposite of what he says comes true.

I always get a little worried when Eklund says, "I am told..." You know, it's not healthy to talk to yourself.

Holmgren has balls, I'll say that.

I don't think Tambo would ever have the guts to trade Hall (for example) if his career all of a sudden is in jeopardy due to health issues.
