I feel for Danny B, always loved the guy, but I couldn't care less about the Habs. I hope they lose all their games.

Would a Couturier for Kulikov trade work?
What would have to be added?

Just reading that FLA may start selling (Fleishman, Versteeg, Upshall, Boyes, Kulikov)

Coots, Mez + pick

for

Kulikov + Boyes

If you could make a deal for Kulikov based around Couturier work then I would pull the trigger.

This defense is going to need a major face lift for next year.

Seth Jones played 26:23 of ice time Sunday - his lowest of last 3 games. In fact, he played 82:06 in those 3 games (27:22 per)

Jones is a ****ing beast of a kid. Still think it was pretty ****ing stupid for Florida to pass over him.

Barkov looks pretty legit though too.

Barkov is good, but Jones' talent for a defenseman is unmatched in the whole draft. Kid has size, speed, hands, smarts and shot. So ****ing happy he's in the Western Conference.

Yeah, they needed a big time center pretty badly. I can't really fault them for picking Barkov over Jones.

Man, I'm in love with the Stars' new jerseys. The logo is underwhelming, but the color scheme is awesome, especially on home jerseys.

Looking for their AO maybe? Great Defencemen aren't as sexy to sell.

This is likely a big factor in the decision. But from a PR standpoint, I wonder about choosing a Russian over an (African-)American. Nothing against Barkov, but hockey isn't an easy sell in Florida, so every little angle can help.

Flyers have 2 points.

That's worst in the league! Not too much imagination required.

So where did this discussion of the Flyers and the Sedin twins? Is that basically being speculated because 1) They are UFA's and VAN can't sign both (or doesn't want too) 2) They are the Flyers and it sounds like a insane deal they'd pull off.

They'd obviously improve the team a lot, but I don't think it'd be smart to trade for them. They've got a decent amount of elite offense left, but cap constraints, etc. You know the deal.

Flyers would need to shed close to 10 mil to fit them now.

That's Mesz & Simmonds to start would be 7.975. And then maybe trade Coburn/Grossman for picks

Sedin - Sedin - Giroux
Schenn - Lecavalier - Voracek
Hartnell - Couturier - Read
Rinaldo - Hall - Talbot

Sure, why not.

If that lineup had trouble scoring...
