The Flyers are more a cautionary tale to me than a role model.

Goalies of all the positions on the ice scare me the most to project. They are often a product of their defensive skill, and even more the system that their teams employ. Look at how Philly's castoff did once put into a system where he could succeed. Watch the scared of bear guy do the same once gone from there. I am not sure how much better is out there than Fleury for a reasonable cost. Vokoun we were beyond lucky to snag, but he is old. You are not going to get goalies in their prime who succeed in front of crappy defenses and systems for peanuts.

Long and short of it is that I get all the gnashing of teeth over Fleury. But the next step is, yeah we cut him loose, what now? That part scares me. Vokoun next year, fine, but then what? Anyone we bring in is going to get peppered under Bylsma's system which creates a ton of odd man breaks the other way if the opposing coach has any semblance of a brain. I am not sure if they will not look as bad if not worse.

Broken ribs

Torn cartiledge (presumably also his ribs)

Punctured lung

Separated Shoulder


What a powder puff. I bet he learned how to play hockey from Ryan Whitney.

Re-watching the last 4 minutes of game 6. Still stunned watching it 2 days later.

With 58 seconds left, after a Boston time out, Coach Q sends out Oduya, Hjmarlsson, with the Bolland line, (Handzus and Frolik) but then Toews replaces Bolland shortly. Seabrook replaces Hammer half way through. Always interesting to see how the coach goes with at the most important defending moment of the season.

Hawks win 2 in 4 years. One with Niemi in goal, another with Crawford. Hossa with 4 final appearances in 6 seasons.

I don't think Whitney has any idea as to what the word "injured" means.

Look at the aborted Lecavalier trades at the bottom. The Montreal one would have been so good for TB.

And the Dudley to Toronto would have been terrible.

Montreal would have been set back 10 years. Would have loved it. Would have been another Roy trade for them

Hawks have now waived / decided to use both of their compliance buyouts if they clear, on Olesz and Montador.

The Bolts with Pacioretty on Stamkos' wing, Subban/McDonagh and Hedman manning the blue line in front of Price, not to mention a 1st round pick? Would have to have been considered among the top teams in the East, I can't imagine how badly they would have destroyed the SE division.

Messier has left the Rangers...

Arpon Basu ‏@ArponBasu 1m
Messier says his departure from Rangers has nothing to do with not being chosen as coach.

Dan Rosen ‏@drosennhl 1m
Messier says resignation from the NYR is not in response to coaching decision. Of course if he was hired as coach he wouldn't be resigning.

Respect as you put it, but how does a team conceivably allow him to play?

Wow...

Might have saved Lawton's job. Was this the same Montreal GM who picked up Gomez?

They really want a Francophone-Canadian Superstar in the Habs lineup don't they?

It's too bad he's not really a superstar anymore.

Meh. I don't think any of those players will be a big difference maker for either of those teams at this point. Tweener Depth trade.

I would love to do a tween depth shakeup trade I think.

I think Tanguay can still be an impact player. Jones had back-to-back 20 goal seasons from 2010-12 before really struggling last year. If he can find that form again he'll be a pretty important contributor on a rebuilding team. The defensemen are probably a wash, though. Regardless these are all guys who would be significant players on a majority of NHL teams. Can't call it a big shakeup for either team here, but saying it's "tweener depth" is...arrogant.
