Just checking in after hearing about these rumors. I know it's an easy stereotype with Russian players but Yak is far from a selfish player. He hasn't exactly had any opportunity whatsoever yet, even throughout pre-season he was getting games with 3rd and 4th liners for the most part. He's more like OV than Radulov. Loves scoring goals, loves seeing his team score and wants to win. In interviews he'll always put the team's success ahead of his personal success. He hasn't been good so far this year but Eakins has him sitting out because he's trying to do too much on his own, which was the direct quote. Problem is, he's stapled to Ryan Smyth and really doesn't have much to work with. His defense is horrible, and needs to improve but I don't think that's the reason. Honestly, most Oilers fans and a lot of the media were pissed when hearing he was scratched. It was a horrible decision, frankly.

Can we just convince Edmonton that Meszaros is really, really good? Or should we "convince" them...like send Snider, Rosehill, and Mathers with an in-person proposal?

Honestly, I'd like to keep an eye on Mathers. See how he turns up. I'd rather have him than Rosehill.

"convince" them...as in send those two as muscle to do the convincing with a dash of condescending tone from Snider. Not in the trade...although if EDM wants Mathers as part of the deal for any of those names, I'll help him pack and drive him to the airport.

Nice to see Briere has been demoted to the 4th line! That didn't take long.

Wild outshot the Leafs 18-3 in the first period. Leafs are up 2-1

Toronto really has everything going right for them despite the mistakes and poor play.

Ilya Bryzgalov's camp tryout with the Las Vegas Wranglers is over and now he continues to wait for an NHL opportunity.

"Bryz will train at home in [New Jersey] until the right NHL job comes around," his agent Ritch Winter told ESPN.com via email Wednesday night. "He has turned down one NHL offer recently and will wait until the right opportunity presents itself. There is no rush. He is in great shape and ready to go when the right opportunity arises."

Bryzgalov had agreed to join the Wranglers just for camp so he could train, and the team announced Wednesday they had released Bryzgalov from his tryout. The Wranglers open their ECHL regular season Saturday.

If he's getting offers I don't know what he's waiting for.

Maybe none of the offers actually involve playing goal.

I don't know if anyone else saw this...

My favorite quote:
Quote:
Vanek, a rugged 6-foot-2, 207-pounder who is one of Buffalo's cornerstones, could bring the Sabres several prospects (Scott Laughton? Nick Cousins? Oliver Lauridsen?) and/or draft picks.
I didn't know the Great Dane had so much value. Gotta love the Philadelphia media.

LOL.
But I really hope we don't move Laughton. Vanek doesn't fix this team.

If Buffalo trades Vanek to the Flyers for a package involving Lauridsen as a prospect going back, I would laugh my ass off.

He absolutely can. He is getting paid 1.4 mil a year to not be a Flyer! I think he's content with waiting until a team needs a new goalie around midseason
