Bruins are apparently looking into bringing jumbo back. He’s a shell of himself but I’m for it. If he came back to win a ring that would be one of the wildest career paths ever.

The pick is protected & Galcheynuk is a rental. Addison is the prize. Good on Guerin for getting a decent package back though.

Isn't it only protected if Pittsburgh misses the playoffs? That's not happening.

I don't know dick about the NHL draft but I've heard this class is deep.

I guess I get it, but firing Boudreau with what he has to work with seems like a rough deal for him.

First game I’ve been to in a year and a half maybe, the third and OT was actually fun. It was 80% Eichel but it was nice to have Olofsson back too since only three guys are capable of scoring on this team. Now just beat the Leafs Sunday and get that false hope building

Solid hauls for the Devils yesterday. Understandable value in Coleman’s contract if you’re Tampa, but I appreciate the Devils selling off what they can here. No idea where that first ends up being given Vancouver/the west as a whole remaining unpredictable. They’ve definitely gotten some good worth out of it, though. Like to see JT Miller having this kind of year, I remember Rangers fans always liking him but he never really put up prime numbers on that team or as Tampa’s 12th most recognizable player or whatever

Huberdeau is a legit threat for the century mark and I didn’t think that was possible for him even two years ago. The more durable of the two but to see him with 15+ points on Sasha is still surprising

Separately, the time has come for Vegas to run away with the division

I actually like the Bruins trade for Kase

And how the hell is Zach Bogosian still in his 20’s, I feel like he’s been around for 20 years

I don't understand the Ducks reasoning for that trade. To get a shitty late round first that almost certainly won't turn into a player half as good as Kase? If they're already tanking to the point that a 24 year old doesn't have a place, they ought to be moving Rakell and Silfverberg.

I can't imagine their prospect pool is overflowing, either.

I really canít get over this. And now heís on the arguable Cup favorite.
Ď08 defensemen are just my favorite thing. Doughty and Karlsson dominating for years and now Josi/Petro/Carlson looking like a legit first-time finalist group for the Norris. Plus the tall guy.

Carlson should be disqualified from the Norris after what Malkin did to him yesterday

Great our stud goalie is out for multiple weeks because of a car accident.

Looks like we’re resigning Kreider though.

7/6.5 is a good deal considering what Lee went for but still scary considering TDA is going to need a huge deal.

Have to see if we can trade Skjei in the next few hours

Marleau going for a cup, SJ should do the right thing and send Thornton away

Weird deals. Wings basically paid to get rid of Green and keep some of his salary. JGP deal seems like a wild overpay. On the plus side, the Sens now have like, 20 picks this year to use to acquire and develop talent for the rest of the NHL.

I'm assuming AA either goes for like, 3 1sts, or a conditional 7th at this point.

Edit: or 2 seconds, I guess? I'm good with that. Likely neither is ever as good as AA, but they both already probably play a better all around game. Should be fun to see him play with McDavid.

Unsubstantiated rumors that the Hawks not making any deals at the deadline because Bowman is getting his walking papers has me 75% hard.

Zach Parise trade in the works with New York Islanders

Wow, did not think this was a possibility. Sounds like we'll have to take back that garbage Andrew Ladd contract, but it's $2m less per and 2 years shorter. Interested to see what other sort of compensation is involved if it becomes official.

Islanders trading for a 35 yr old with 6 years left is hilarious

Obviously it didn’t result in a cup but what are the final thoughts on the Suter/Parise megadeals? It was a lot to commit for two very good but not elite players, but at least they tried and went for it.
