Anton Khudobin will sign with the Dallas Stars. Excellent pick up for the Stars.

Yeah, Karlson only makes sense if you have a chance at the Cup in the next year. The Isles would be better off playing their rookies, sucking, drafting Hughes, and being good the following season.

No way you trade for Karlsson without signing him first. Isles also need to avoid giving out bad contracts to the UFA this year.

Halak will be better playing for the Bruins, but you still cannot count on Halak staying healthy. Hope Lou can trade for a backup that might have promise as a starter and is blocked. Rather the Isles go the trade route than UFA route.

Officially, there is confirmation John Tavares did not sign last night...he is now eligible for maximum a seven-year deal.

Just let the deadline slide by? I thought it was a crap move to drag things out to begin with, but to do that is a whole new level of scumbaggery.

Hughes would be great but no way the Isles will be bad enough for the #1 overall.

With Greiss as our #1 goalie??? And Pelech in the Top 4 on D? Yeah, they can suck that much.

With Garth and Doug I could see it. Trotz and his functioning NHL defensive system will get the Isles enough points to miss out on the #1 even if Greiss is the #1 goalie.

Lou will be motivated to make sure the Isles do not completely fall apart if JT leaves. Lou will trade his own son if he has to.

Tavares in 2016:

“First and foremost, it’s for our fan base. They’ve been dying for this. ...They’ve deserved it. They’ve waited, they’ve been through some tough times. To be part of that is a good feeling right now.”

Heard a rumbling that a deal with the Isles could have been done but not announced yet? Any truth to this?

- JohnScammo


My guess is he must've said something ahead of time and we haven't heard about it yet. Being maddeningly indecisive is one thing, but this would be an uncharacteristically low thing to do. If he really had Lou and all of us waiting around until midnight without saying a word, he'll be easier to hate than Kirk Muller.

If you think you’re frustrated by the lack of news/clarity on John Tavares, imagine being one of the teams who pitched him not having heard anything yet.

This is a kick in the Richard on so many levels, but I'd rather he go if that's his true character. All the talk was just lip service. He's a windbag POS. Now onto free agency? Would love Statsney but looks like Vegas. I know Neal is kind of a scumbag but he was great in the playoffs. Maybe we trade for a goalie and D?
