Trades are for the benefit of the team. To build the team and strengthen it. Most importantly for long term growth unless management decides it has a real chance at the cup. Lots of fans want trades for short term excitement highs. Patience is one of a GM's greatest attributes.

He's probably planning retirement now. One more shot at the Cup. He don't care about 5 years from now.

Hockey Canada should make full disclosure of all no trade clauses part of the selection process. If it came down to two guys for the Olympic team etc and one had all Canadian teams on his no trade list it would make the process a lot easier.

I don't go much for the math articles. I rather watch the game with a beer in hand instead of a calculate. I have to admit though Evan that this work you put out diligently and immediately really is impressive. Even if I don't understand to much of it. Regards and keep up the good work.

@Anthony Petrielli @Tommy Cat As well a lie is a deliberate attempt to mislead.  Even if what I say is false its because I I'm not recalling it right.  I'm not lying.  And I don't appreciate the comment.

@Anthony Petrielli @Tommy Cat I distinctly remember Clarkson  with his back to the goalie jumping and a shot going through his legs and in.

Early in the season when Clarkson was playing better he was a direct result of the Leafs scoring a few PP goals without getting a point himself.  In front of the net screening.

I don't necessarily agree that Kessel has to be in the leadership group.  You have to pay for goals and Phil's contract is because he's a sniper.  Goal scoring by sniping necessitates finding open ice and Phil is always ready to go on offense so is ofttimes called a floater.  So it is what it is.  With goals comes $$$  With a lot of goals comes a lot of $$$$  But really everyone knows he isn't one of the leaders on this team.  In fact he's a guy the leaders need to try and reign back a bit and play a team game instead of a Phil game.

You do realize he needs to be a mega super star though. Not just a regular.

Good to see Nylander coming over early but they need to keep him with the Marlies. I know that is the plan but I hope they stick to it. And I hope people will give all the foolish trade talk a rest. Waste of breath and finger skin.
