Quote from: blue_gold_84 on February 16, 2015, 04:38:39 PMSome reports have said he'd been dealing with post-concussion syndromes and battling depression. I'm sure more will come to light as the investigation unfolds.RIP, Steve. Another tragic loss to the hockey community.

Quote from: Jockitch on February 16, 2015, 08:59:41 PMBy the end of this weekend if a few teams have lost extra ground & have accepted it is not happening this year ....... then the moves should startCase in point ..... in the past week heard that Lou was still deeming NJ in the playoff hunt ...... with a dash of reality NJ should be dealingCoyotes should be moving Yandle, 28 yrs old, & Vermette at 32, soon, with a large number of youngsters on the horizon, why not get another 1st round pick.Boston may get an offer for "old" Chara & why not sweeten the pot with the goalie Subban thrown in to get a top 6 forward & draft pick Ottawa should dangle Macarthur & Wiercioch, Florida needs to move Fleischmann, Bergenheim & over payed Jussi Jokinen ..... good luck thereA mere splattering of what may turn to facts or just remain fantasy
Quote from: GOLDMEMBER on February 16, 2015, 09:56:00 PMYep likely lots on movement upcoming. If Chevy makes a move like that could you envision what other more "movers and shakers" type GMs are thinking? Yikes.
Quote from: New_Earth_Mud on February 16, 2015, 10:01:36 PMMy guess is Chevy is done with trades this year.I think we will see Armia up here.
Quote from: GOLDMEMBER on February 16, 2015, 10:10:57 PMoh ya Chevy is done like yesterday's greasy burger! I think the smart move is to stand pat even know forward depth would be welcomed.We got lots of high picks super prospect depth and a very good line up. Arnia, I'd love to see what he's got. Depth scoring for the 3rd 4th wheel.
Quote from: New_Earth_Mud on February 16, 2015, 10:25:09 PMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM yesterdays greasy burger.I think we go with what we got and hope for a playoff spot. Like you said we have lots of talent coming up and thats what we will depend on. When our team changes it will be from the guys we are developing and not trades.
