The Offseason Thread Part IX: Howson often gives nuts to toothless people

Howson is the single most ridiculous GM in hockey right now.

Still liking Bob Richarss title suggestion, "Hi I'm Scott Howson, and welcome to Jackass"

NHL source: Flyers unwilling to part so far with either Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier, the two players teams with available studs want.

Howson traded the pick to Philly used on Couturier.

Anyone here what Pierre was saying? Hate how he didn't recognize us as a potential spot for Joran Staal

We are not a potential spot for him in a trade.

because Pittsburgh wouldn't trade him to us, and IF he's dealt to Carolina, he'll likely sign there. now If he reaches FA, I absolutely see him signing here over Carolina.

That I know because of the division rivalry, but I was talking about FA primarily.

They might be believing he will be moved and will sign before FA.

I don't think Staal is re-signing with the team he's traded to. Unless it's Carolina.

‪#Isles‬ have acquired D Lubomir Visnovsky from the Ducks for a 2013 2nd-round pick.

Vishnovsky is making only $3M in salary. $5.6M cap. Are the Ducks losing money?

Vishnovsky to the Islanders for a 2nd round pick next year.

Just what a rebuilding team needs, a 35 year old d-man.. lol. But seriously, why would the Ducks just give him away? Surely they could have done better. Need to clear salary? Possible precursor to something else?

Oops, put this in the draft thread. Good move for NYI. Ducks clearing salary?

Solid for the Isles, only owed 3 million, with a cap hit of 5.6.

NY Islanders: Circumventing the cap floor since 2005.

Lubomir Visnovsky told me that he had considered retirement after this season. But said he was feeling better and changed his mind.

Might be time to reconsider.

Well, it'd be nice if people could post them in the draft thread as well, since many of us are in that thread watching the draft. Most of these moves have to do with the draft.
