Getting away from Uncle Leo for a moment:

LAK and EDM are looking at pretty significant injuries on their blueline. LA was down to 4 defenseman after Doughty and Phaneuf both left the game and didn't return last night and Klefbom is out for a bit with a busted hand (sorry to rub it in, Schweiner. I love you)

I know it would leave the Isles blueline kinda bare, but I wonder if there isn't a fit for Leddy somewhere. If not, wonder if either would be interested in us dumping someone like Pelech their way.

I would trade either one of them. Leddy does not look the same at all and pelech is a disaster

The only stat that matters right now is 1-27 on PP, and that 1 was a 5 on 3. Needs to be fixed, start by removing Clutterbuck. Also Ek has something coming about Lou's "inner circle". Can't wait for that.

I doubt those two are particularly attractive to either team. Both teams are tight against the cap and Leddy's deal would force them to send salary back here.

One interesting player I'm not so sure I'd love, but might make sense, is Jeff Carter. Almost a near even-money swap with Leddy's deal and signed for this year + 3 more.

Keep up Chiefs! I requested Leddy’s services about 4 pages ago.

Hey I've said it before, I don't go back and read old pages I missed. So if I repeat things that have already been said....¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I don't even know who you could send us. Not a defenseman, obviously. And your cap is kinda top heavy. Clearly you're not trading us McDavid, Draisaitl, or Nuge for Leddy. Lucic has a NMC and I'd rather drown in a port-a-potty than take on that contract. Not really a whole lot else that I'd be interested in (that would be realistic) for Leddy, unless it was a package of picks/prospects which I don't really see Lou going for.

Maybe Puljujarvi gets a change of scenery if the Isles add something to the deal? That's the best I got and it doesn't really fill a major need for the Isles.

How about Pelech? He's +8! That means he's good!

I’d offer Puljujarvi, Ethan Bear and the ghost of Sekera (cap reasons/affordable buyout for you if it doesn’t pan out).

Pelech isn’t even fit enough to operate the wheelbarrow that carts arounds Nurse’s BBC.

The Sekera thing probably jives with the Clarkson/Horton trade Lou made in Toronto. He's got a NMC though. No clue whether or not he'd waive it to come to the Island.

On paper I'd probably make that deal though. I thought Bear had some value, no?

Indeed he does, but his loss would be somewhat tolerable thanks to the drafting of Bouchard.

Dump? With such great Corsi numbers, he ought to fetch a couple of first round picks!

I also referred to him by the incorrect name. Adam "Tha Corsi-god" Pelech.

Don’t know if Sekera would waive or not. But I’m sure he could be convinced.

Oh and by the way, I found Komarov's HDCF%. Dead-last on the team as far as forwards that have played more than 150min





Yes, Clutterbuck is second.

I apologize I am confused as well I guess the small sample sizes are useless. As for komoraov my thing is that to me he is not bad as for what he was signed for. He kills penalties and even though this might be bad he is better defensively than more than half the team
- kasperrko


agreed.. and I think in general he was signed to help teach these players how to play "the right way". It's just frustrating to see him miss glorious chances over and over again... and i kinda miss Kulemin.

The only thing you should apologize for is not giving me any credit for getting the Darius Kasperitis trivia question right at the game on Monday. (I was on the Jumbo tron for the Isles trivia. They asked me what Islander in 92/93 was the first Lithuania player to ever play in NHL).
