I remember this story. Even if it isn't true, it sounds like it could have happened.

Dal Colle was looking better with each game, I thought, but he probably needed to put a few more points up on the board in order to stay in the lineup during this stretch run. Still, it was good to see him getting in position to take shots from the high slot over the last couple of games in addition to putting in some work in front of the net. With another offseason of training, he could stick next season if he's not thrown into a trade before then.

He did everything they needed him to and he did a pretty solid job. He'll go back to Bridgeport with confidence and probably kill it until he's needed again, which is great. It was inevitable that he'd get sent down when Ladd was ready to come back, whether or not that's what most people wanted. I'm most intrigued to see what happens on the blueline now. Hickey is going to get back in the lineup and I'm curious to see how they make that happen. I sincerely hope it's not Toews that sits, he's been too good.

You have to think it's going to be Pelech. Even though he's been better as of late.

I think he's the odds-on favorite, but there's a lingering feeling that Toews will sit because he's the low man on the totem pole. I don't think that's likely, but I can't say I'd be totally surprised.

Sitting Toews would be a Cappy move.

2. Barring a massive swerve, Matt Duchene will be traded. There are undoubtedly more suitors than Columbus and Nashville, but they are the two most mentioned. I’m not convinced Winnipeg is interested at this time, and if I had to pick a stealth destination, I’d choose either Calgary or the Islanders. (If GM Marc Bergevin wasn’t on record as being against rentals, Montreal would be on that list, too.) There is talk that if he ends up in Tennessee, both player and team will work to make it a long-term relationship. Let’s see if Predators GM David Poile gets any extensions done in the near future with arbitration eligibles like Ryan Hartman and Colton Sissons, or Kevin Fiala — coming out of his entry-level contract. That would give him a better idea of the cap room he’s got to play with, assuming none of those players are involved in a potential trade. (Aside: Boy, do the Predators love Sissons. They can’t say enough good things about him.)

8. I think the teams with the best chances at signing Panarin long-term are Florida, Los Angeles, the Islanders and the Rangers. The only one that makes sense to take a shot at him for rental purposes is the Islanders. Boston hovers as a rental option, too. If the Islanders don’t get their top choices, GM Lou Lamoriello could consider old acquaintance Ilya Kovalchuk. Remember, the winger has control over his destination.

I could see that happening, too. I'm a pretty big Pelech critic, and even I gotta admit he's looked better lately. There's really no pressing reason to take him out of the lineup right now, other than someone's gotta sit with Hickey coming back, and like you said, Pelech's not the lowest on the totem pole.

But...in Toews' favor...he's actually putting up points in addition to playing fairly solid defense, which this team desperately needs.

We focus on the forwards a lot with the lack of scoring, but I think the team just as badly needs a lot more production from the D. They have one guy among the top 50 in points from d-men...Pulock, and he's closer to the bottom of that list than the top. If there's any concern at all about the Isles' overall goal production, subbing Hickey for Toews would seem to be going in the wrong direction.

PSA for 2/28: Please, please, PLEASE, don't throw stuff on the ice during the tribute video. The Isles will get a penalty, Pajama Boy will score on the power play, and I'll have to throw myself onto the ice.

Throwing poop on the ice isn't a great look and could hurt the Isles

So just throw everything into the Leafs' bench. Problem solved. PB gets hit with a tire iron and nothing hits the ice.

Glad someone tweeted that because you pretty much know that there would've been a whole bunch of asshats that chucked beers onto the ice. I'm sure there will still be a few morons that do it, regardless

I read somewhere that Lou usually likes to get his deals done sooner rather than later. I gotta wonder if he’s waiting to see who blinks first and then makes his move.

I still think that the absolute best way to get him off his game is to bully him all night long. When he got knocked around a lot here he'd often end up taking some stupid, selfish retaliation penalty.

I think the Senators have been holding up the market trying to negotiate with their pending UFA's. Now that it's been reported that they're going to trade Duchene and they should be making a decision on Stone in the next few days, I think we'll start to see the market move.

I don’t think you can go with the all quiet approach. There will be some asshat Islanders fans who will applaud Him. Those idiots will need to be drowned out with boos.

I don’t think you’ll be able to hear any idiot that applauds. Looking forward to the Canadian media lambasting us. It’s going to be glorious.

I would be shocked if they all don’t feed off the crowd and make it their mission to destroy him if given the opportunity. Easy to achieve hero status😂

I mean at the end of the day he's got a lot of friends in that locker room. They've already played each other and it was readily apparent that nobody is going to take a run at him. I don't think the game being at the Coliseum will change that much. Maybe someone finishes their check early to get the crowd going nuts, but nobody is going out there trying to collect a bounty on his head.

I'd love to see him lined up and trucked as much as anyone, I just don't think it's gonna happen.
