    Anyone know what I need to sacrifice to get the Stars to win tonight?

    I forgot to do my sacrifice tonight, so we're going to OT...

    Under normal circumstances I would agree, but given the likelihood of a matchup with Tampa, looks like I have a new favorite team. #AnyoneButTampa

    Yeah, looks like it’s gonna be Dallas for me too. I hate Tampa, but unfortunately it looks like they have their shit together finally.

    Tampa will definitely be a tough opponent, assuming they win tonight. Dallas will get an extra day of rest if that's how it goes, and I'm okay with that. They are completely gassed, they didn't get a break between series like Tampa did after dispatching Boston.

    Laviolette to the Caps, 3yr/14m.

    That strikes me as a good fit. Hopefully his no BS attitude straightens out the nonchalance in the lineup.

    Eric Staal off to the Sabres for Johansson. My guess is that the Wild want to see what Johansson has left, and the Sabres move Staal for draft picks/prospects unless they have a really good season, plus open up a bit of cap space. Seems like a good trade for Buffalo, idk what the Wild are thinking here.

    At 35 is probably the only nutty part about it. However, when you consider that he can still be an effective 40-50 goal scorer into older age, if only because of his one-timer, $12 million doesn't seem so crazy. Especially while he is still legitimately chasing Gretzky.

    I think he would get it in a heartbeat, if revenues weren't in the toilet and the salary cap wasn't frozen for the next 3 seasons.

    Well the Pens re-signed McCann, 2yr/6m, wasn't really expecting that tbh.

    I think the bottom line is they are cap strapped and Rutherford isn't getting remotely close to his inflated trade expectations for some of these guys. People also forget that even though McCann "slumped" he also tied his career highs this season and was one of the Pen's best players through January.

    It's sort of like the idiots calling for Malkin to be traded, forgetting that statistically he was their best player this season :lol:
