Minnesota is the Montreal of America, in that they have an unhealthy obsession with hoarding/trying to hoard players that grew up there

That said, I can't figure out how Lawton was an agent and GM and can't figure out that a team in first place in the division at the trade deadline isn't trading two of their top six forwards

Vanek worked out well.

No offense to schwein but Lee having an excellent season?
BINGO!

The only way I can see the Isles trading Nelson is if they had a deal for another center. I mean, they're not trading away Nelson and replacing him with Stephen Gionta...

And even with a deal for another center, Nelson's probably Exhibit A in "players who have clearly bought into Trotz's message." He plays with more purpose in all three zones than we've seen in his career. I can't see them casting him aside now and rolling the dice that a different center will buy in the same way.

Lee...I still think there's already an agreed-upon framework for a deal worked out there, with the exact numbers filled in based on performance once all or most of the season's done, so the team knows if it's paying for a 35-40 goal scorer or a 25-30 goal scorer.

I know we have new management but can we stop throwing ideas like this out into the universe?

He stinks, huh? I always kind of felt like he was one of the more overrated players in the NHL, but I saw Corey Snajzdzsdnjder or whatever his name is losing his mind on twitter about Faulk getting so much ice time a few games back.

You're only judging him by his talent and not factoring in that he rates "Off the Charts" on the Cappy Battle Level Index (CBLI).

Hmmm. Perhaps we should wait on this topic until the wisest of us wakes up and chimes in.

Cpt’s prunes should kick in fairly early I’d think.

19-20-39 in 58 games with a +12 is pretty solid, especially when you remember that his most common center is Brock Nelson.

You talking about Vanek? I think the thread turned to Lee.

Bingo, you work so hard on these trades you should commission from the Faukin trade, or that other Pesce of crap D man you are trying to pawn off on other teams.

It's incredible that they have Dougie Hamilton, who has twice as many goals, but instead choose to play Faulk on the 1st PP unit.
