Feel bad for Niemi. Dallas needs a shakeup.

I hope Rutherford bribes Vegas into leaving Schultz alone.

My hope is that Vegas negotiates a contract with Daley or Bonino in their 48-hour FA period.

Honestly, if he keeps this level of play up and can pass Maatta up I wouldn't be surprised to see him exposed instead especially if his play trails off again. Schultz is still just 26 and has some cost control for one more year as an RFA. It wouldn't be a horrible idea if he keeps getting better here.

I loved the trade at the time and keep loving it. Just a good bottom pairing pickup.

A lot of speculation on Hockey Central at Noon today that Rutherford probably won't be sitting pat, he'll be upgrading.

I'd love a RH 2nd pairing dman but know we'd have to pay for it. I guess in Rutherford I trust. (even though I hated his hiring at the time)

There's no way I see that happening. Maatta could net them something decent back if they really wanted to move him. There's no way they're going to let him go for free just to keep a 3rd pairing defenseman. Schultz is still insulated and wouldn't be if he was playing top 4.

And the Sabres come back on the Rangers in the 3rd and win 4-3 in regulation. No points for the Rags. And the Islanders beat the Caps in DC 3-0.

Great night!

If it gets to the point where they actively try to move Maatta to just get rid of his cap and no one will even give up a pick for him they could do this.

A young defenseman with potential that is signed for decent term isn't going to net a pick?

As much as Maatta has struggled at times, he's come around lately and there would be a lot of teams lining up to acquire him if we were actively shopping him. I'm not saying he's going to net a King's ransom, but there will be a lot of interested teams.

Good game!
Dumoulin played much better defense, Letang, he is still a mess.
Happy for Flower to get a much needed victory.
Maatta played strong against Benn!

I'm very perplexed by the Guentzel scratch, but I trust Sullivan, so at least for now I'm going believe there is a method to his madness.

Hopefully the roller coaster ride that has been the Penguin season stays on the "up" for awhile. The view is better.

Yeah I was wondering about that too. Maybe it's because the AHL is less physical and Sully doesn't want to see him burn out early.

Maybe Guentzel has a tweak. Maybe he hyperextended a finger. Maybe he has the green-apple squirts. Maybe he has a stuffy nose that is affecting his breathing. Maybe he inappropriately touched Iceburg. Maybe he has an infected ingrown toenail. Maybe he lost a bet. Maybe they just want to give him a breather.

Fleury has never won a game with Guentzel in the line-up. :scared:

Did his -2 in Brooklyn play a role? I didn't see enough of the game to comment either way myself, and the radio didn't indicate specifically, but that line seemed to have a rough night.

He's a young player and going to have growing pains which is all part of a developing player. Like I said, I'm going to trust their reasoning right now, but I hope they're not setting some sort of precedent for young players that if you have a bad game you're going to pay.

Not to start a sidebar discussion, but I kind of feel that's how they handled Pouliot.
