    In which case, is a first and second pick worth the improvement that Vanek brings over Moulson? :stirpot:

    Imagine if the Isles bomb and miss the postseason and give up a top10 pick while Vanek walks in free agency. Yikes...

    I think the Isles overpaid in giving up the picks as the production between the two players isn't massively different. Def. not a 1st and a 2nd rounder different (i saw the comparative stats somewhere). Vanek can put up higher numbers while Moulson puts up nearly as high numbers while being a little more consistent.


    but I agree on the "why not a goalie" problem. Doesn't make sense.

    I'm not sure if Montreal looks awesome and Budaj is just beasting or NYR are just down on their luck. There didn't even look to be any fight in the Rangers calling for a kicking motion after that goal.

    Does AV get the boot, or does he get a full season? I know there's been a lot of injuries but come on, they have to be better than this.

    Rangers offense sucked big time (3 of their top 6 are out), but the amount of bullshit calls in that game was awful. I'd be deflated if I had to deal with those calls as well, especially given the no-goal from JT Miller a few days ago in Philly.

    actually, I recall the games last year when Montreal was in town. Each was a complete and total snoozer, and this one was no exception. Ranger looked much different in Detroit on Saturday, Montreal's method is to simply make the game as slow and closed off as possible. It's boring as all hell.

    You guys see Olesky lose his skate blade and try to hobble off looking like a puppy wearing a cast on slippery flooring?

    Holmgren working his magic again. Max Talbot ($1.75 x 3 yrs) to the Avs in exchange for Steve Downie ($2.65 this year, UFA after)

    the season isn't even a month old, and we have two instances (er, video instances) of players pulling out their own teeth at the bench.

    I'd lol if he got into a goalie fight, then finished with a shutout. and then did post-game interviews while wearing sunglasses.

    For sure, ha.

    I wonder what the "street justice" will be on Varlamov. Maybe he'll get a few head-level slapshots coming at him.
