If we are going to sign a washed up vet it might as well be Nolan.

My money would be on Guerin signing with the Flyers.

What about Guerin makes you happy to have him? Not the signing or trade I was looking for this summer. The guy wasn't that good last year and he is old. I'd rather a kid gets a chance over Guerin in all honesty.

Huet loaned to a Swiss team according to a Swiss newspaper. Huet's cap hit for the supposed team in cap hell, the Blackhawks, dissapears faster than the posters claiming they were dead in the water. Take that Cap Spacers!

I have to think some assets will be moved for a defensemen. Even with Matt Greene the Kings could use a #2/3 dman for depth.

Exactly what I was thinking. Dean must have a trade option that would send one of our RW away for either a LW or Dman. Beyond that, it doesn't make sense to pick up another RW, especially with Parse getting his new contract that's a 1 way deal.

Yeah but our top RW's are untouchable almost...Brown and Simmonds...Who wants Parse, he really has little value and Westgarth is hurt....I think Moller is the guy who gets dealt...

Stoll and Williams seem the likely candidates to be moved but Deano will have to do his best used car salesman gimmick to convince another GM they'll be OK without a warranty. No leather, no power windows or door locks, salvage title, previous owner was a heavy smoker-but it's got a really nice casette player, I heard that technology is coming back in a big way my friend.

Deported. Huet got rounded up by the NHL INS.

Man if we give up Williams and Stoll, we better package them up with prospects for something good. Ye they aren't very good, but they are still our #1 rw and #2 centre

Those 2 for Savard + Chara would be cool though /dream

No one wants Williams. Stoll's contract is a little big, I know Edmonton wants him back.

3.4 for a 28 year old center isn't bad.

What a sweet deal for Huet. He gets paid 5M a year to go hang out in Swizterland.

We should keep Williams. He has negative value, our cap space is sitting pretty right now, and he could rebound.

I don't know what to think about the Guerin rumors... If it is a one year deal, I can't see it being a bad thing, but there would have to be more done prior to the season because he isn't going to put us over the top or anything. He just fills that Whitney need we were looking for last season.

When you have the will to get rid of a player, there's a way to do it.

Could the NHL void this transaction due to "obvious cap circumvention?"

No, this is not circumvention. This is no different than assigning a player to the AHL.

They probably gave Huet a choice.

Always ways to get around the cap. They could do the same thing to Campbell and be in the Kovy sweeps.

Just shows how pathetic this offseason has been for us. Kovy at anything less than a 7.5 cap hit is a bargain.

Unless something pretty major happens we are just burning another year with our good, young talented players.

Business 1st in L.A. as usual.

Well, I don't really know Matt personally (i met him once for about one minute) but I simply asked around and it seems that he might have gotten the BillG rumor wrong. If we made any offer for him it wasn't in writing. Nothing has been sent to his agent or the NHL offices as of 5pm est today. I suppose someone might have spoken to BG's rep over the phone and asked about what it would take to sign him but nothing official has been done so far as I can tell. Who knows?

Here is a un-interesting article on Willie:

I just enjoyed the picture as it included Jones taking shots from Willie.






(If only it was Randy and not Martin...)
