The 6th thing to watch for is how hung over Johnny, Money and Tkachuk look. Looks like they took in some Eagles vs Bears football last night.

Kinkaid for Smith and a 4th? Devils are stuck with Schneider and Blackwood is emerging. Todd is a fan of that kind of trade, and so am I

Much better than the dumpster fire they were before. 6 points out of a playoff spot as opposed to 12 and a lot that was mentioned in the preview (PK, PP, etc.) has improved dramatically.

We're not really gaining much there other than cap space, it's a "meh" move in my books, but I also wouldn't be opposed. It would clarify the 1/1A situation in net...

Also wouldn't say no to prying Campbell out of LA, but fat chance these days... Maybe Quick at 50% cap retained...

There's not really much substance to his blogs. He goes to a stats site, clicks sort, and presents his findings.

Well that's how stats work...you can't just cherry pick hot streaks or every team would be awesome.

Hawks are who they are...if the Flames are on top of their game they will skate away with two points

100% Agreed! One of the fun teams to watch night in and night out, especially with the fireworks!

if 2020s 4th. 2019 is pretty low in picks.

upside is that would free up a chunk of cash for a rental and to deal with the RFAs next year...OR focus on getting a goalie if Neal is moved as well.

Smith is done after this year, so any Smith/Kinkaid (type) trade is really about creating rental space.

If Hunk had a positive thing to say, he would need to express it under a pseudonym... his brand is strong...

Todd's making some interesting points about Hathaway's advanced stats. I realize Hathaway is there to disrupt things but if he keeps getting caved in, they'll have do something about that 4th line.
