Sign T & K for whatever they want, deal with the consequences after. Just like the Cup season.

Cannot be trading too many picks away when you need those prospects to fill out the roster.

as excited as i am to have Winnipeg in our conference so we can see ladd/buff, I'm also nervous because they are a solid team that plays physical and has speed. things we generally struggle against. they are definitely fun to watch though

they lack Top stars and it doesn't look like they get those game changing players soon

not to mention ladd is playing great and byfuglien is one of the best offensive dmen in the league.

Holy cow, there's a discussion on the main board about the 11-year anniversary of the young fan that died after a puck hit her, and some guy's going on and on about the netting at the ends of the ice ruining his fan experience and how they're an example of a nanny state.

I think he's just mad he can't get t-shirts tossed at him anymore.

Won't matter with that goaltending they have now.


Any idea if they have any decent prospects in net? If only they hadn't let Kari go... Didn't even realize the guy they got in exchange for him, is currently a Blackhawk, Ivan Vishnevskiy, until Googling just now. They also got a 4th round pick, but no idea who they ended up taking with it. Too lazy to dig that far.

2 of his last 3 games he's given up 4 goals, to Ottawa and Toronto. He's very inconsistent. Don't know if you're going to get that type of performance, or if he'll hold the Bruins to 1 GA like he did in his most recent start. Although when I posted that, I had it in my memory that he had been playing a bit worse than he has.

Winnipeg is a cool franchise. I want to see the MTS Centre playoff atmosphere. It'd be something quite neat, in my opinion. I am not rooting for them because they have Ladd, Buff, etc., but I think that'd be super unique.

Unfortunately, they are only temporarily ahead of Carolina since Ward is out. They need to distance themselves here.

Faulk has an MCL sprain, and going to miss some time it sounds like.


For some reason I like that entire division, and really wouldn't mind anyone other than the Panthers making it.

Their jerseys make my eyes bleed. Also like the fan bases of the other teams much better. Not sure how Florida rigged their stats to have an average of 99.1% occupancy this season. Every time I flip to their game that place is empty. Versteeg is also the only Hawk that went there that I miss at times, but I wouldn't want him back at his current cap hit of 4.4M, and to be stuck with it for 3-4 more seasons.

Their jerseys are god awful.

Piping has murdered so many jerseys.

Feb 9th 2010
- Atlanta Thrashers trade G Kari Lehtonen to Dallas Stars for LD Ivan Vishnevskiy and DAL's 2010 4th rd pick (#101, LW Ivan Telegin)

July 1st 2010
- Chicago Blackhawks trade LW Andrew Ladd to Atlanta Thrashers for LD Ivan Vishnevskiy and ATL's 2011 2nd rd pick (#36, RD Adam Clendening)


So ATL traded Lehtonen and a 2nd (Clendening) for Ladd and a 4th (Telegin).

Sure, it's ESPN, but looks like Wild and Bruins fans are the main ones against making visors mandatory.

The Bruins fans outside the state perhaps.

I'm assuming New Hampshire and Maine are aligned with the Bruins.
