I think this is a precursor for a Luongo trade.
Yep that's the line im thinking we see. Who plays the off wing Higgins or booth? I'm sad to see samuelsson go but I'll take that trade. They needed something to stop the helicopter nonsense
Thetis just doesn't strike me as a DL kinda guy...
As for the Florida trade, I am still scratching me head. Is cap space all their primary goal? Doesn't really make sense to me, I have to think their could have been a better play, especially because Tallon would not trade Booth last year.
Turris is a flop at this point.
Something has to be up with Booth as well. I get that Florida wanted to offload salary, and that Sammy and Sturm are tradeable at the deadline for picks and prospects, but with that cap hit, why couldn't they get a bigger return?
at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.
