God I hope the Leafs give up something of value for Kipper, Carlyle plays him, and they just barely miss the playoffs. It would just be so, so perfect.

If Leafs fans are lucky then all the talk is just a smokescreen and gamesmanship wrt a potential Luongo deal. But if they're actually talking to him...

I want it to be true. Just, please.

Tomorrow will be crucial. Never thought a team that is suppose to be tanking could have a shot at a division title.

Right. Starting next season, the Caps will actually have to be good to win the division.

The division realignment might've been the best thing to happen to this team. It's now going to force McPhee and Ted to be competitive, or they will sink quickly.

Yeah, we could take Easy Street to a #3 seed for many years. We *were* actually good and earned the high seed for two of those years. Next year, the best we can hope for is a middle to late seed starting against the high seeds because we ain't gon' win our division next year. Easy Street is gonna get carpet bombed.

We are 22 pts behind the Pens right now.

Whoever wins this division better not bother with a banner raising. Pathetic.

Are you kidding??
It would be comedic gold to see a South East division banner hanging in Winnipeg. We're not South East of anything...

South east of the East Coast team in Alaska.

Well, not necessarily. The Devils, Rangers, Isles, and Flyers are all pretty much crap as well.

Yep. Of the vaunted "new Patrick" division, only Pittsburgh is elite. The rest are down in the middle with Washington.

Which means the vaunted "new Patrick" division is only going to be getting 3 playoff spots for a while.

It's not as if the other Eastern division is a bunch of world-beaters. Detroit, Boston, and Montreal are good teams, and the rest are... iffy. Ottawa as well I suppose.

I had long thought that realignment = doom for the Caps. But this season has me rethinking that a bit, just because the East is such an ocean of mediocrity.

Perfect analogy. Like the NFC West of a few years ago. Of course, Seattle beat NO so maybe the winner can beat the 6th seed.

If the 6 seed is TOR then the SE winner might have a very good shot. The only thing they have going for them that you might not expect to be a fluke is goaltending.

One Ribeiro suitor out of the picture.

Roy to Vancouver for a 2nd + prospect.

Yeah, Ribs would definitely garner a 1st + prospect.

And after the morning skate, he said he was focusing on the game and not his extension; that if there'd been any progress, we would've heard about it. Sounds like a guy who's not hearing what he wants to hear.

George's alleged laughable opening offer of 3 for 14 may have likely said all he needed to hear



They leaked it to the media, with nothing to lose. George doesn't play this game. I am not liking our chances of getting anything for him outside of his services this year.

Ted, Vogs, tell everyone Kuz can play center, was the counter.
