He didn't want to come over. The word was that he was unimpressed with the Isles front office and that he wanted to see a stronger management group with a good plan before he considered coming over. So he's got two years left on his deal and we have, well...an exponentially strong management group with a plan.

I think he comes, but obviously nothing is set in stone.

Would be great to have Sorokin now so Lou would not have to use resources for a goalie.

I don't really think Trotz is going to help or hurt the chances of Grubauer coming. He's going to get traded and he's a young guy without a NTC/NMC. He doesn't really have a say where he goes and I'm sure that he still would have been #1 priority whether Trotz signed on here or not.

I dont think Trotz is going to help or hurt the chances.......just that he's familiar with Grubaeur.

Obviously the main reason for bringing in Lou and Trotz was to show JT we're serious about winning now. Considering Sorokin's above sentiments, do you think any of that factored into Malkin's decision? We do need a goalie of the future and his numbers are pretty nice or would that be too much of a stretch?

Yeah so they very well could move. That would be a travesty. The Oil Flame rivalry is one of the greatest in hockey. Lanny McDonald had the greatest duster of all time.

I don’t want them to move either. I want them to stay in their poop building till the day finally comes when the roof collapses during a practice.

I'm sure Malkin knew about it and I'm sure that it certainly factored in his decision to bring Lamoriello in to change things up. If you're hearing from all angles how terrible your GM is, it's probably going to influence you a little.

I think Sorokin absolutely has the potential to be the goaltender of the future and, while nothing is guaranteed, I would only move him in a deal that was for a player so good that you could justify moving him out.

Even if they bring in Grubauer and he has an amazing few years, I still wouldn't trade Sorokin. You can't have too many good young goaltenders.

It makes the world go 'round.

I seem to recall reading also, however, that he made some comments indicating he wanted to go a good organization.

- JohnScammo


I did read the same thing. Basically means he wasn't coming

I'm sure Lou has had a discussion with his agent and has asked for an answer on whether he intends to play in the NHL after his KHL contract expires. That answer will be significant on what Lou does as far as keeping or trading Sorokin.
Imho, I don't think Lou's going to wait around without a commitment from them.

Would be great if he came over. I think I'd be more willing to include him in a trade though...betting on him not coming over, and taking the chance that I'd look pretty dumb if he does come over and plays lights-out for someone else. You never know with the mixed signals you get from over there and then the contracts that magically adjust to the situation, like Petrov where there were all of a sudden more years on it than anyone in either country knew.

I don't know...using Devon Toews season-ending injury as an excuse, despite the fact that he has played literally zero NHL games ever, takes the cake for me. That one was jaw-dropping.

It's not that I'm unwilling to use him as trade bait, but it damn sure better be for a young, talented player that's cost-controlled if we're moving him. There's more risk in using him as some throw-in than there is to wait out two years and assess the situation from there.

BUTTTTT, at least Toews is a chip prospect. He'll eventually be a legit NHLer. Gibson is a Bud tall boy away from your beer league netminder

Yeah that's what I was figuring. Glad I wasn't too off base.

I agree. Can't move Sorokin for Grubauer.

He was just traded to the Oil with Lee for Talbot, a pick and Lucic.
