Both could be gone. Two of Kessel, Phaneuf and JvR.

I bet one or two guys off the typical first line of JvR, Bozak, Kessel, and some movement from the top pairing D -- probably Dion. Maybe some fillers added in. Maybe Gards.

Franson's on the upswing, Dion's been downhill for a while now.

Nah, he's just a believer in the ideology. Doesn't care for experts, stats and studies.

That moron has time to write a book while managing the affairs of a G7 nation, and he's married with kids?

Only job he's ever had was working as an economist for an oil company, yet can't recognize a recession when it hits him in the face, nor know what to do to rectify it. Never the less, use standardized costing to estimate the purchase of a fighter jet we'll never need. Cuts taxes in a manner that shrinks the economy, and reduces average standard of living. And now he plans on cutting taxes again, and balancing the budget, when every economist expects significantly lower than expected growth as a result of the Saudis lowering the value of oil.

A conservative economist politician who isn't likeable and doesn't understand economics. Yeah, I really want to read a book he wrote on something he's not an expert on.

Also, I'm not sure that we've done a terrible job of drsfting in the range you suggest.

We're a team that's ranked all sorts of places throughout the season. I'm not interested in pin-pointing that based on this week or four weeks ago. I think we're a mid-table team.

Word is we need their size and ability to create offense off the cycle.

What evidence is there that we don't have marketable assets? Or that we would need to win 5 or 6 trades to turn the corner? Are you as knee-jerk as the masses ir Leaf fans everywhere? This is a team that has proven it's ability to win and proven it's ability to lose, one with some promising talents young and old. It's also a team in transition to a completely different coaching philosophy mid-season.

That's not to say we're fantastic or that we don't have some albatrosses. But it seems to me, the team has attempted to bolster its scouting year after year and the rest of the comment doesn't mean much.

Watching the Ducks feed. They seem to believe that Carrick's first name is Conner. Have since the beginning of the game and no one's corrected them.

Better making the right decisions than the quick ones. And besides, who says there's good options out there? Trades aren't made by one team.

Thought he's played well. He doesn't have a consistent line to play with. I'd put Lupul on his wing when he returns, Santa on the opposite when Holland gets back.

Why not? Shouldn't we be aspiring to be as good as possible while the kids get experience? Creating an atmosphere that's conducive to winning, and drawing people here? LA's the perfect example of how anythin can happen come playoffs.

Yes a bunch of professional athletes were conspiring to play shitty to create the possibility of their coach's firing.

Proven by how well he coached our team. He might know hockey, but he doesn't know coaching or people or systems.

It's a meaningless expression, from a meaningless fool.

Detroit turned Yzerman and Fedorov into Selke players. Wilson doesn'tknow a spot from a stripe from a skidmark, which is why he's sitting around bitching about jungle cats.

It got one in a plane, and his replacement seems to be getting something out ofvthe bodies that are still here.

Gotta like the guys who do take hits to make plays, it sucks that they get injured, but that's the cost of playing like you should.

Franson, Polak, Robidas are all guys who will make and take hits. Reilly is getting more physical and is going to be a horse as he gets older. Phaneuf will dish them out, but he's been avoiding them too much this season.

Winnik, Komorov, Lupul, Panik, Booth, these guys play in a manner which will garner us wins. Look at how big and mean the Kings were yesterday. That's their blueprint, and the Ducks' blueprint, and San Jose's blueprint. We have to take ownership of the space on the ice, and that'll help us own the puck.

It's why we signed Clarkson too. JVR isn't a really truculent sort, but he uses his size to own space.

Everybody wants to bitch. The team has gotten better consistently, there's prospects in the system, and even before Carlyle got fired the coaching had improved. Now that he's been fired everyone wants to bitch even more than they did before. This is bullshit.

Think those are all pretty decent upgrades. Sure as hell better than no upgrades or downgrades. You expect some fucking miracle trade every year or what?

Hate how it's a positive winning percentage if you lose in OT. Your wins in OT count as wins why should your losses count as ties?
