I never understood that. We are six miles and two train stops away from the center of the known universe, manhattan & the worlds most famous arena, MSG.

I'm not sure why Lou wouldn't. I'm not very high on Jacob since Loki has emerged. I would be comfortable dealing him though if Loki does jump ship to the KHL it could get ugly. I like Jacob too, but he's not an untouchable to me anymore like Henrique, or Larsson.

Now for Glencross he's probably not worth it. Though for someone better who is contracted past this year then why the hell not?

Inexplicably a huge Josefson fan, so I always hesitate when his name comes up.
But Calgary is in need of centers with top 6 potential and the Devils are pretty set down the middle for now. I think Josefson is a return they'd definitely be receptive too.

Don't have a 3rd... and in this draft, I'd like to keep the 2nd to try and see who falls.
But, I'd pull the trigger on that. With great hesitation. But, I would.

Versteeg is injured for the remainder of the season I think.

You guys must have forgot the last two games against Florida over the last two weekends where we didn't get scored on by him!

Flames would be fools to let Glencross go right now. A 20-goal scorer on a great cap hit for another 2 years? You keep him as part of your core moving forward. As bad as Feaster is, can he be that stupid?

Rhetorical question.

Calgary was stuck in limbo and have given up on it and have entered full on suck for draft pick mode. I wouldn't be surprised if they traded anybody.

Any other GM, I say Glencross is not on the table. They need some type of skilled player, and at least some remaining veteran presence.

But it is Feaster and he has declared the Calgary Flames, in his own words, open for business.
All the big name rumor pushers (Dreger, Friedman, etc) seem to think everyone but Baertschi is available for the right price.

Well, they're not likely to ever find a time where more teams considering themselves buyers than right now. Odds are he's going to get a far better return for Glencross now than he ever would down the line (barring him greatly outperforming what he normally does). Unless you plan to keep him forever.... now isn't a bad time to move him.

Think Millard knows anything about the Devils though? It seems our stuff doesn't leak. Like someone said though rumors are always fun to read, and sometimes not fun when you read things like this despite it possibly not being true.

Who knows...but I figured better to ask him than some random "insider"

Depends on what way he means "quiet." Could be quiet in the sense of not working the phones much/not really being "in" on anything notable. Or it could mean the usual of "not much is coming out about them one way or another." The one drawback of twitter is that vagueness because of the character limit.

No one ever knows if Lou is working the phones it almost never comes out. Look at the Poni, Lokti, or Dags trade NO clue until it was done.

Hell even the Kovy trade we were rumored but then nothing then boom he was ours.

If it was any other team or GM I'd say that means no calls but with Lou it just means nothing anyone has heard because thats Lou's style, and they wont hear till its done (if anything gets done)

Trading Matteau + 1st rounder would make Adam Larsson the only 1st round pick we have over the 5 drafts from 2010-2014

Not something I'd be excited to do.

My buddy said McKenzie broke the Poni trade about a minute before Lou did. Though it was announced 15 minutes before that Lou would be holding a conference call with the media. I wasn't home that night though. I was out with my girl, and didn't hear about it until I got home at like 12:30 or 1:00 AM.

Yea this whole board didnt know what it was injury information on someone who had just been hurt or something else.

People leaned toward trade some even jokingly guess it was Poni, imagine the shock!

My buddy thought maybe it was an announcement of Clarkson possibly being extended too.

Anything within 15 minutes isn't "breaking" much, in my eyes. That's just being the quickest draw.

And all he said was something like "Hearing Ponikarovsky is being traded. Maybe it's NJ?" or something to that nature. Basically he put 2+2 together with word of Poni about to leave town, Zubrus injured and Lou holding the conference call.

Yep that was floating around also.

Thats another one not 1 person knew Zajac was even being talked to about a new contract.

Lou holds the cards tight, and frankly with social media and the contacts some of these guys have its pretty amazing he keeps things soooooo quite all the time.

As a fan its a blessing and a curse, its cool to hear ur team is going after a big player, gets ur hopes up then if u lose out it sucks thinking about what could have been. If you dont know anything you dont realize its a real possibility so you dont think about it as much and then Boom it happens and its like a surprise. I like the way does things frankly.
