Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Stick a fork in the Coyotes, if they aren't moving to Pheonix, they're moving somewhere.

It's a shame Paul Allen hates hockey, they'd be welcomed in Portland.

Whoa.

Hurricanes get: Teuvo Teravainen and Bryan Bickell
Blackhawks get: A future second round pick and a future third round pick

Maybe it's good move for Teräväinen. He and Sebastian Aho in same team will definitely be good thing for canes.

LOVE it for the Canes.

Francis has done a sneaky good job since taking over.

Had to be done for the Hawks cause they needed to get out from under that albatross.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

Gotta be a pretty big gut-punch for Chicago that they've been forced to trade two guys who should've been significant building blocks for the future in Brandon Saad and Teuvo Teravainen just to keep things under the cap.

I'll say it again: As much as I like Corey Crawford and understand how integral he was to their past couple Cup runs, I don't think it's sustainable to be paying him $6 million a year for above-average goaltending. They went through this with Niemi, and rather than pay him, they let him walk and found a cheaper (and better) replacement. Pittsburgh just did the same with Fleury/Murray. Crawford is a good goalie, but if you're choosing between him and depth talent, you let him walk (or in their case, trade him last summer) and trust that you'll be able to find or develop another goalie good enough to ride to the promised land again. Like I said, as good as Crawford is, he's not an elite talent, and it's easier to replace one player than it is to replace four.

What's more amusing is that there is a good chance the Hawks are just gonna use the Bickel money to re-sign Shaw. Then in 1-2 years they'll be scrambling to move Shaw because they over paid him.

Rumor is that Calgary contacted the Pens about a Fleury trade. As a Pens fan, I would hate to see him go. However they really need the cap space, and considering that Murray just won a cup this would be a smart move.

Re: Mr. Crosby's Penguins = 4X Champs

As expected, Umberger is bought out

People laughed at Hextall when his first move was trading Hartnell for Umberger (I'll admit, I wasn't too happy at the time). Umberger is off the books and save for a million this year and next and clears a roster spot, meanwhile Columbus has been trying to move Hartnell and his 2 years left @ 4.75 mil. Hartnell is obv still a good player, but GG to Hextall for being wise enough to take a temporary hit in return for financial flexibility in the future.

Hextall is the man with a plan god bless him.
