Thirded. It's odd that I finally become a fan of a player when he's 40. I was always a LeClair man myself.

I was also thinking he was pretty much done before the season started, but if he is traded, we can try to resign him July 1.

He was traded by the Pens at the 06' deadline to Carolina and went back to the Pens in the offseason. So the idea is not out of the question.

Since its obvious Recchi will be moved. I say pickup Perrin to play with Marty and Stammer for the rest of the season and see how it goes.

Also on Richards going to the Rangers, i thought that would happen from day 1. Torts loves Brad...always has. He'd love Marty or Boyle too, but its just not going to happen, Richards makes the most sense but what would they give up? Does Dallas really want Drury or Homez?

Winner.


I hate Eric Perrin more than I hated Roberts, just because one is gone doesn't mean we need to get the other.

Besides, is he really that much better than anybody on the roster now? A 33 year old with 15 points. The only reason he would be claimed is that he is Marty's friend.

What's with the Perrin hate? I thought he was average. Serviceable, but dispensable.

GM Brian Lawton said there is "potential" for the Lightning to be "very active" by today's 3 p.m. trade deadline.[

We will know at noon today if Roberts is claimed. If not, Tampa Bay will have three hours to make a deal.

"With Gary, it's about treating him with respect, and trying to find a place where he would enjoy being that has a legitimate chance of making a playoff run," Lawton said.

I don't care what people say, Perrin was cool as hell...he can be our 4th line center, in between Craig and Hall

On the PK, Perrin is money. He's certainly not very skilled offensively but he is a great at the forecheck and backcheck, a great 3rd/4th line guy. He's pretty much the same type of player as Hall, Pettinger and Jokinen(last season/early this season).

Whether the team needs one of those guys, I'm not sure. Segal was pretty impressive in many of the areas Perrin accels at. Also with Hall, Malone, Lecavalier, St Louis, Craig, Halpern, Pettinger and even potentially Stamkos, I think the PK is fine.

Depending on the moves made, Perrin could possibly be an asset. That's why I wouldn't mind bringing him back.

He seems unhappy to be kept out of the loop.

I don't blame him for being unhappy. I know management isn't going to tell him at this point in time, "ok Rex heres where you're going" but sheesh, at least let him know who is showing some interest.

I have my doubts about picking him back up again during the summer, I doubt he'll want to come back. I cannot figure out why Lawton cannot talk to these guys.

Agreed. It seems rather unprofessional to keep guys in the dark and not even tell them where they could possibly go. The whole Roberts situation without even telling him that is going to be waived is also just wrong. This new ownership/management is really starting to annoy me.

I can't figure out if they're dicks or they're just clueless thinking "oh lets just waive him and see him go to a contender so he gets another shot".

I didn't know about the Perrin hate , I liked him but I don't want him back, the post was his worst enemy, plus Marty has Vinny as his buddy.

He has no NTC so Lawton has bigger fish to fry. At the deadline players are not people they are assets. That is why GMs are willing to change the life of people for 7th round picks or a small amount of cash.

As for the Roberts thing I was told they intended to tell him but it was leaked by TSN before they could get a hold of him. But once again, he is an asset no matter how old he is.

Kuba re-signs in Ottawa for 3.7 Million /yr for 3 years. I expected him to walk from the time he was traded there. Surprised to see him stay.

McKenzie: OTT sends Vermette to CBJ for Leclaire. Interesting... I remember the last time a team traded for a "starter" who is a backup in Columbus.

LeClaire sucks and Columbus didn't need him anyway. What a steal.
