I heard Phoenix on the trade rumors board, which sounded like a nice fit to me, given the holes on their blueline. The only problem might arise if they think the picks will be top 10 and therefore too valuable.

Too much of a pain, so at this point. It would probably make more sense for him to change his last name to Meszarous.

The guy you quoted from said the offer was made last Monday. Well as of last monday, Tampa did not have their 3rd rd pick.

Actually, as far as I know they still don't have their 3rd rd pick as no deal has been announced between them and Pittsburgh.

Maybe the reason we don't have all of the details yet is because Tampa is looking to make both the RFA signing and the 3rd round pick trade at the same time through NHL Offices?

It's kind of like how at trade deadline, teams can send in that they are working on a deal before its officially made, which allows them to slip under the deadline minute.

Maybe Mezzy signed the offer sheet, but its not officially sent to the NHL offices until Tampa gets their 3rd Round pick, thats what I'm saying. People also need to remember that teams have made "compromises" when they don't have the pick. New Jersey received Scott Stevens for losing Brendan Shanahan because St. Louis did not have the right picks for compensation.

Can't be done that way. The 3rd rd pick has to be officially transfered over to the Bolts, before they could proceed with making the RFA signing.

I remember the whole Stevens/Shanahan incident. But if I remember correctly, the rules were changed in the new CBA.

lol...well that ends the whole RFA debate.

Hey AH, did you know about this trade and that's what you were talking about when you said he was going to Tampa?

The Ottawa Senators have traded defenceman Andrej Meszaros to the Tampa Bay Lightning for defencemen Filip Kuba, Alexandre Picard and a first round pick (previously acquired from San Jose).

It's actually not a bad trade for both teams.

I was skeptical about Tampa being a threat this year, but now, I have to wonder. Adding Meszaros, even at the loss of Kuba, is a very good acquisition and if this Tampa squad clicks, they could be the damning for a team like Ottawa or New Jersey and slick into 8th in the playoffs.

I hate how there are two Alex Picards, both from Quebec, in the NHL. So annoying. Damn the Nick Backstroms while I'm at it.

Yeah? If so, bummer. I liked how that all came about. While Stevens in NJ was a huge success, they did turn down a young Rod Brind'amour, Curtis Joseph and two draft picks to get Stevens instead. I wonder how NJ would have been with that instead of Scotty.

I'm not totally convinced with Tampa just yet. But adding Meszaros to their line up is definitely a step in the right direction.

lol..I know what you mean. I'm always mixing up the two Alex Picards, if they ever get sent to the same team. I'm screwed.

because of the parity , a lot of things could happen . People that are just puting the Habs first team in the conference could be deceived a lot . Tampa could surprise , The flyers will have Gagné , the Bruins will have Bergeron and who knows what ottawa are going to do without Emery with the team .

1. Montreal
2. Pittsburgh
3. Washington
4. Boston
5. Philadelphia
6. New York Rangers

Everything else is a guess but Toronto, NYI, Atlanta and Ottawa will all be out of the play-offs.

Personally, I predict Habs at 2nd. I think we'll win the division but the whole year is going to be bizarre for both Conferences.

Most people give the Southeast to Washington, but what if Theodore cracks again? And Tampa, who the hell do they have in goal, Mike Smith? Can he hold on all year? His first year as starter? Boston is going to have a lot of guys back and healthy, but with a healthy Fernandez, is that going to cause tension with him and Thomas? The Flyers will have Gagne, but I'd say they are a worse team this year defensively, and losing Umberger could hurt more than they think.

Not much is predictable other than "Florida, Atlanta and Toronto will suck".

If the Sens are suckin' by the New Year, is there a good chance that ownership will blow the team up & start from scratch again???


They could probably get some very good young players for Alfie, Heatley, Spezza & Phillips at the deadline to reshuffle the deck like Philly did a couple of seasons ago!!!

I doubt they would trade Alfie. If they do, I'll be shocked. As for Heatley and Spezza, damn right they will get a lot. People forget that Heats is 27 and Spezza is 25. Both got a lot of juice, like 10 years each. Phillips is another I don't see going. Both Ontario teams sucking would/will be wonderful.
