Not really referring to you. Seems like everyone is having a hard time which makes me sad.
So lets fix that folks, let's talk trade!!
Alfie is going to stay unless someone really overpays. Did get 2 fair value offers, but i can't justify pulling the trigger unless it is an overpay for the sake of realism (esp if its to a rival)
Shopping LAtendresse+ for a good young NHLer, high end prospect or high pick. Gonchar same scenario, or i'd move him by himself for a decent piece.
Looking to get a 1st or Bishop, or a 2nd + prospect/player. Can talk other types of offers as well, just giving an idea of the ballpark.
Dauvagins, Benoit and Lundin available for cheap anyone needing depth.
Open to other discussions as well as long as they aren't ridiculous (eg. Zibinejad for a UFA...you people know who you are ). Would love to add another pick or two...maybe move prospects from positions of strength (LW, D, maybe C) for other needs
It's been a strange game and I have to go to work soon, so looks like I'm just going to stand pat and try to re-tool through free agency. Feel free to make any last minute offers on Liles, MacArthur(UFA), or Bozak(UFA) and hopefully I can get back to you in time.
This was one of those low risk, high reward deals. These contracts expire, we have no interest in re-signing Boyes and Visnovaky but this will provide us with unprecedented depth going into the playoffs.
Was hoping to have one more move be done, might have something to announce tommorow but looks unlikely.

Very happy with the team. Got lots of depht with great balance throughout the line up. Most likely the best and deepest defence core in the league with a goaltender capable of upgrading his level of play to elite and you have the top Stanley Cup contender right here.
