Great recap Alec...thanks as always.
My issue with Kessel on the first Flyer goal wasn't the giveaway, it was his inability to stay with Timonem back up the ice. He dogged it a little right after the giveaway, there's no way a 38 year old should be able to pull away from Phil. I'm sure that's why Carlyle was pissed.

@Optimustic The Flyers were at the end of a fairly long shift, whereas we got Gunnar and Dion out there. They basically generated the goal, so fresh legs made a difference.

@.JVR. The Holland and Ashton callups put us down to 5.
@B_Leaf Just speculation from Feschuk...nothing from Bolland's agent.

@Jay31 I bet Carlyle really wanted him.
@B_Leaf That I have definitely NOT heard.
@B_Leaf I heard he was expected back on the trip.
@Zep2 I think Giroux outplayed Kessel pretty handily. Not a great game from Phil, IMO.
@MaxwellHowe Burke knew it was coming and he was smart enough to not get caught up in it. I'm not sure what the timing of all the deals were, but it wouldn't surprise me to learn that the NHL...with Lou's blessing...used the Devil's as a prop to send a message to the rest of the league about how serious the NHL was about those contracts. It always amazed me that Lamarillo was foolish enough, and disloyal to Bettman, to go ahead and take 2 cracks at this deal.

@MaxwellHowe They will be dropping down 20 spots or so...so it's not like they got off scot free.
But still very shady, it's obvious the Devils knew all along they were going to get it back...otherwise they would have given up the one after going to the Finals.

@Jmessih While some are whining about HH's (or The Truth Hurts) freedom of speech they might do well to remember that Alec at al also have the freedom to run this forum in any way they see fit. They don't need anyone's permission to ban...it's their web-site.
Just like we can ignore anyone's posts we choose...others can ignore the web-site entirely if they find it run unfairly.
@Shift_Disturber1 Hemsky might be my new favourite player. Scores 2 goals to beat the Sens last night and is scoreless and a -1 one tonight playing for them.

@Marlies Man That's a great site...I use it all the time.
@CanuckUKinToronto But they made themselves better by trading for Hemsky today!!
@Pent_House Well said. They do seem caught between styles at times.
@lukethenuke I love Gunnar...always have. But if we're going to ask Dion to be more of a stay at home guy then having a partner who can move the puck on his own would be a great help to him. Gunnar may not be fast enough to play with Dion 25 minutes a night.
@darthNihilus He's our #1 d-man...and paid like it. He should be playing 22 minutes at least. Maybe if he had someone better suited to play with it would make it easier on him. But the answer isn't playing the guy less than 22 minutes, IMO.
@Cameron19 I said the same thing to my son...he seems really sluggish and he shouldn't since he had 3 weeks off.
@lukethenuke You don't do that to a guy like Clarkson, he's not playing that poorly.
