I don't get Philly's obsession with Boucher. He was amazingly bad in his last stint there (even for a Flyers G in the playoffs he was bad... I probably could have scored on him).

Probably good since he is the age of about half their roster. :D

No one posted this?

@DarrenDreger #Breaking: #Habs trade rights to PK Subban to Blues in exchange for Kevin Shattenkirk. Confirmed.


I didn't see that coming at all.

It's the real, verified Dreger's profile. That tweet you posted isn't on it.

I have Dreger's real, verified account.

I'm thinking it was hacked.

I think you read "DarrenDreger_" as opposed to "DarrenDreger", because a quick search gave me this:

I don't follow this person. I follow @DarrenDreger No trailing _ after the name, I follow the real guy.

So if this imposter is showing up in my timeline, it isn't because I'm following him.

The Westgarth to Carolina thing makes sense in that he is married to Bill Cowher's daughter, and the Westgarths make Raleigh their home. <shrugs>

We probably should have done this. Fistric isn't God's gift to hockey, but it solves our #6 issue and he clears creases...nice job by Edmonton. For Dallas, this probably means Brenden Dillon has made the team...an undrafted free agent from the WHL that we could have had if we had scouts in the WHL...

Carolina also saves a few bucks - which seems to be the point of the Boucher deal as well. They also didn't have a designated punching bag either...

I'm surprised the board wasn't up in arms that we didn't end up with Thomas Hickey. We value the CSS number pre-draft more than the actual draft number? Wake up, LGP!

Wait... we don't have scouts in the W? Why do we love drafting from there?

We don't love drafting from there. I'm not sure who is in charge there now, but I'm assuming it's changed a bit in the last few years. Before Morrow, Pouliot, Uher in 2011 and 2012, we didn't pick from the WHL since the 6th round of 2004 (Moises Gutierrez) who was a nobody even then...like Sweden and Finland, it appears to be an under-scouted territory for us...because there isn't a shortage of talent there (both draftable and left undrafted) that we seem to be ducking around for various reasons. I just hope that we have the proper, competent personnel to cover this ground is all...
