It’s weird to me that the re building rangers refuse to part with Henrik who arguably is their biggest asset. Two years now and he’s still on the team. I get that he loves New York but from a business perspective id have traded him last year at the deadline
- kindlyrick

It's the other way around. Hank has a full no-move and he doesn't want to leave. Simple as that, he earned it.

Its impossible to trade him with his NMC. He has to approve any trade, its really that simple. Ball is all in his court. He was asked last year he said no.

So he's holding the team hostage. Sounds familiar.....

Ahhh i didn’t know they asked him to waive his NMC and he declined. That’s a bit selfish IMO. They coulda added some nice assets for their rebuild.

This seems doubtful to me. Why would they pass on a cost-controlled 20-goal scorer on the rise for two "mid-level" prospects who may never even get to the NHL? Granted, I don't know a thing about CBJ's prospects, so maybe these guys project better than Beau, but the fact that they're described as mid-level makes me doubt that.
- UIF

The players CBJ sent probably won't be better than Beau, but it's possible that the Sens believe Duchene would sign an extension there and may covet the 2 picks more than Beauvillier. Or they think one or both of the prospects can or will be better than Beau. Isles offer may have just been a first and Beauvillier, who knows.

Very well stated UIF. It will be very different if Lou does not make a trade and when Garth did not make a trade. Garth was just afraid to trade young talent.
- ses111


Snow didn't really earn a break from the fans. It's one thing to preach patience about a GM who's bungled the past decade's worth of deadlines as both a buyer and seller for your team. It's a lot different when it's a GM in his first season here -- with the team in transition -- who's been about as successful as you can be in this business.

The conditional first was probably what put the deal in place. I don’t love that

And Stone will cost more. Probably the same two firsts structure + one really good prospect/young player

The Isles forum on HB. Much more entertaining and insightful. And chiefs will probably beat those guys to the punch with announcements.

As an aside I wonder how the fat (frank) who had season six for the b sens when they were here feels about stone now. When he was here all the guy did was scream at stone about how he didn't shoot and how much he sucked
