Not saying WSH/Laich isn't the mystery team/player, but Laich has had 5 fights in 4 seasons in the NHL....I wouldn't call that 'willing to drop the gloves' as you say.

This team needs toughness IMO. I know he's not a center, but I'm praying that the guy Gillis is targeting is Clowe and they get one of SJ's other centermen to simply 'fill-in' until Kesler returns. Clowe is exactly the type of player this team is missing. Pavelski would be a great addition as well, but not as good as Clowe considering how this team is built right now. Clowe is who I hope Kassian develops into in 2-3 years. With the Sedins, he could be a 30g guy and hold other teams accountable for their actions finally.

I didn't say Laich was a goon, I said he's willing to drop the gloves (which he has done before). That's something Malhotra doesn't do anymore and since he'd essentially be Manny's replacement next year, that's an additional dimension he could bring that is not currently there with Manny (on top of 20g 20a production).

However, I'd love to have Clowe and you're right about having him mentor Kassian. I just can't see SJ parting with him.

Edit: Laich also adds to overall "team toughness" more than Manny does in the sense of hits.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Lupul said to be "very upset" coming out of the Xray room after being hit by a puck playing vs the Pens tonight.

Time to panic

It was part of a 3 way trade that someone I know aparently heard about. Im was not saying this will happen but posted it for discussion. BuretoMogilny and a few others posted why they thought it was non plausible. This was the main parts to the 3 way that we were talking about:

Vancouver: Suban
Montreal: Huberdeau
Florida: Luongo

Florida has already said they will not trade Huberdeau for Luongo. How is this any different?

Funny thing about the Toronto media's response to Gillis' news.

They showed their cards once again. Truth is they have no idea who Gillis is talking to and about what.

If they weren't very interested in Luongo, the news wouldn't have initiated that kind of response - ie. uh, oh that's interesting, who really cares?
Instead, they bit hard and over-reacted in firm denial: ie. NO NO, we're the only ones who 'don't want' Luongo.

Either way, Gillis just owned them...again.

Fractured forearm after being hit by the point shot.


If this team lets go of Sang he will burn this team next year.
