He's a pretty nice player.

And Finnish.

So as expected, we add depth and playoff experience. Cool.

Pitt, Wash and NYR got better. We did not. Depth that I can't imagine plays.

It's weird to have two players who can have the nickname Korpi.

Edited: I read it wrong.

Should CBJ have given up next year's first, a second and some decent prospects for Shattenkirk? For me, the answer is an easy "no."

Without a doubt the best part of the trade.

Quincey is just as good as Nutivaara and Harrington, and if he only becomes the #7/8 then we still have him in case of injury. Korpikoski should definitely be a regular in the lineup, at least over a guy like Hannikainen.

The Caps got better. Let's not mortgage the future for this year. This is the beginning of the window, not the end

Disagree about those other teams getting better. Pens shuffled around a bunch of replaceable pieces. Rangers likewise. Shatty is the only player among the four teams that's a difference-maker.

You serious bro 😉

Our window is just opening, and most of our young players could still significantly improve . With our defense, and Bob staying hot , we can play with anyone, and we can roll 4 lines . We still lack top end talent , but our overall depth may be be there with anyone

Stars fan here- can anyone give me a brief overview on Heatherington? Thanks.

As far as Korpikoski goes, he's pretty speedy and a decent PK'er. Not going to blow anyone away with skill but he's a good upgrade for your 4th line.

Solid move.

Like what we did today. Kept all our draft picks and beefed up some depth without screwing with the chemistry that got us here. Can revisit the big fish in the offseason.

We have the youngest team in the league and have a handful of prospects already, so yes I would have traded a bunch of picks for an elite power play guy that pushed Murray to the pressbox. In case you hadn't noticed, our power play has been garbage for the last month.

I'm cool with it. My only concern is we have absolutely no defense prospects other than Carlsson and Gavrikov, and Gavrikov is a wild card. We need to stock up on some D prospects.

This should be a great replacement for Calvert in the short-term and provide depth for the playoffs.

He was an interesting prospect when drafted. Second rounder, played for team Canada. Thought he would evolve into a shutdown type. Has kinda stagnated in Cleveland. Big body, slow, turnovers. He was underwhelming honestly. Maybe he gets his game together, but he wasn't coming up to the Jackets any time soon. He's only 22.

Hannikainen is only in because Sedlak and Calvert are out. When they come back, Korpikoski isn't going to play.

Calvert is banged up and Gagner has been absent for a month. No issue with a vet LW that you can trust late in the game.

Oh yeah one more concern. We have two Korpi nicknames. Who's Korpi?

yea, I don't know I don't prefer Korpikoski over Sedlak, Calvert or Gagner. Worst case, they are interchangeable without drop-off.
