Andy Strickland seems to think Jay McKee may come to the Jackets for near the minimum because he's buddies with Hinote and Arniel, for what its worth.

My estimate: "not much"... unless he suddenly became a better puckmover and I didn't notice.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

Considering they lost Eaton, McKee, Gonchar and Leopold, I highly doubt it.

This team had problems beyond puck-moving on the backend last year. At league minimum to play in spots, I'd consider it.

Michalek signing was great at the rate they got him, Martin is a bit overpaid in my opinion but he's good, so maybe he will earn it. Either way Pittsburgh is going to have a hard time finding a scoring winger considering they just spent 9 mil on the blue line.

Pittsburgh has to do something, they are only like $2 million from the cap with only 18 players signed

Trading one of their cheapest defensemen, who is a solid PP guy, when they are a defenseman short isn't it.

I agree, Howson just doesn't operate that way - like them or not, public opinion isn't a big factor in his moves.

What a cluster**** that is, 3 mil a year for that guy? Wow just when I thought the Boogaard/Shelley signings sucked

Wonder if they will bring back Lombardi too. Then all the people complaining about those two trades pretty much have nothing to complain about since they are right back to where they were before them, right?

Any rumors on Kovy or Nabokov?? I know they haven't signed I'm just curious what the speculation is, especially on Nabokov since Tampa just got a goalie.

Still just Kovy to LA. Nothing on Nabby thus far and based on what other free agent goalies are going for, he may have overplayed his hand.

With Boogard leaving Minny, perhaps they want to trade Brent Burns for the rights to Jared Boll.

Breaking the Jokinen signing? Bruce Garrioch. That old adage about broken clocks is true at least twice a year as far as Bruce is concerned.

Agreed, one thing (if anything) I have learned in the past few months is that Howson does NOT listen to the fans.. (other than coaching issues)

Good point Captain!

If the rumor about the Nucks and Jackets talking trade, watch out... this could be the reason...

Hah, I thought you were just being sneaky while I was posting. I'll move my response, as it fits better there anyway.
