How likely is Justin Williams to the Flyers?  And any reason they didn't buy out Matt Read?
Gavin Lee
8:50
Fairly unlikely I'd think. Carolina is pushing hard for him, Dallas will be there.
Halvybuckets
8:51
Any chance Pens trade for Staal in Carolina?
Gavin Lee
8:51
That would be something wouldn't it.
How about bringing Eric in instead?
Brian
8:51
Any chance the Bruins can get Shattenkirk?
Gavin Lee
8:51
There is still a chance, but I don't think they want to push McAvoy/Carlo down.
Caniac Michael
8:52
I am starting to think not, but do you think the Canes will actually make a trade for a top forward?
Gavin Lee
8:52
Yes.
Still think it has to happen.
ClC
8:52
Any news on what the Preds may be up to?
Gavin Lee
8:52
Sounds like the may have gotten stonewalled from Colorado for Duchene, but they're trying to replace Neal's offense somewhere.
Jason
8:52
I saw the rumors on Girardi to TB, any other moves for the Lightning, know they have lots of RFA's to sign and not much cap room
Gavin Lee
8:53
They're actually not in a terrible spot anymore in terms of cap.
8:54
With just Johnson, Palat and Dotchin as real RFA earners,  there room for them to take a big swing if they want.
Anthony
8:54
Halvybuckets, we will give you Staal in NY
Gavin Lee
8:55
Don't do it Anthony. Do you want to see him raise a cup in a Pittsburgh sweater?
Mattias Sund
8:55
Haven't heard any rumours about the St.Louis Blues. Have you heard any?
Gavin Lee
8:55
Very, very little. That organization is fairly tight-lipped anyway, but I also think they're just pretty happy with the squad after the Schenn trade.
Dylan
8:56
Wild freed up 5 mill with sabres trade and should have plenty of money after nino and grandland sign...Any idea what center they will be chasing?
Gavin Lee
8:56
Be careful with the $5MM number. Still have to sign Foligno, and he's coming off a $2.25MM
8:57
Does Landon Ferraro make your head spin? Cause that's who you're getting.
Cullen could go there too.
Dylan
8:58
Lol that's sadly what I heard...Wanted different answer like Cullen thanks
Gavin Lee
8:58
That's what you get when your team is really good.
9:00
So,

Elliott: Flyers
Johnson: Sabres
Mason: Jets
Bernier: Avalanche
Pavelec: Rangers
McElhinney: Maple Leafs

Am I missing anyone?
Teddy
9:03
Any word on the devils front?
Gavin Lee
9:03
They're getting ready for a big splash.
Halvybuckets
9:04
Anthony...i will take him!
GM Rutherford says he has 5 C targets to trade for...any guesses?
Gavin Lee
9:06
Bozak, T. Johnson, Spooner, Helm, Letestu
9:07
Just guesses.
Caniac Michael
9:07
Opinion on the Hurricanes/Flames trade? I dont know much about Kanzig, was this more Frances wanting SOMETHING for Murphy and Lack?
Gavin Lee
9:08
Yeah, Carolina needed to move a goalie before the season started. It was a dump, plain and simple.
Halvybuckets
9:08
Is Maata still a Pen after the trade carousel stops? He is as streaky a dman as I can remember.
Gavin Lee
9:08
If he could learn to skate he wouldn't be as streaky.
9:09
I do think he's involved in any trade for a bigger name. Not necessarily the five I listed above though.
Halvybuckets
9:09
If youre Rutherford, why not save cap space keeping Jarry as back up, instead of signing a vet?
Gavin Lee
9:09
He loves having someone more experienced in that role.
Doesn't trust Jarry.
