    He's right. If a player signs on a traditionally rivaled team, they let any potential beefs go pretty quick and focus on being good teammates for one another.

    Someitmes players just don't fit a certain system. All his New Jersey struggles will do is bring down his offers a bit.

    I've watched them play against him for years, 5x a year. The guy is Andrew Shaw level. You may be correct if they signed him, but I'd put the chance of that happening at less then 1%

    Yeah exactly the kind of player we could use, but we can't afford to be giving him too much term and $$

    LOL

    Roussel isn't that dirty. Runs his mouth more then anyone. He's a great teammate, does lots for the community and drives other teams crazy. As long as the price is right most teams would take him

    Maroon - Resigns with NJD

    Grabner - NYR, NYI, or NJD

    Reaves - Resigns with VGK

    Roussel - Don't know...

    I would have expected Reaves to return to VGK until he got healthy scratched at the end of the SCF. I think something like that might cause him to test the market.

    Would like to see him back on the Blues, but Thorburn has a year left and I can’t see Army tying up two contract spots for that kind of a player, even if he can bury Thorburn in the AHL. The only way I see Reaves returning to STL is if Thorburn is moved.

    Blues' wrists and hands say otherwise.

    Leafs are gonna go after Maroon or Roussel, especially with JVR and Komarov both being FA.

    I’d wager Maroon ends up back in Edmonton if Lucic is dealt. He’s expressed interest in coming back, and compliments McDavid well

    Watching Grabner on the Devils, it was obvious he didn’t fit in and the Devils had no clue how to utilize him. He was a beast in last years playoffs for the Rangers. Thanks for Rykov and a 2nd though :naughty:

    I agree . The problem will be moving Lucic with out paying a ton to do it and trust Chia to sign Maroon to a reasonable deal

    He's the kind of guy Chiarelli needs to low ball in cap hit at the expense of an extra year or two, and hope that he takes the security of a longer deal over a short term payday.

    Canucks could use some speed. Throw money at Grabner short term?

    What he did with the rangers will still get him a high contract.

    If you don't think that his post deadline performance will be used against him in contract talks I don't know what to tell you

    It will. But 1) there's almost always a dumb, desperate GM, and 2) what he did for the Rangers isn't wiped out by his struggles with the Devils.

    GMs do dumb things. Andrew Ladd didnt do much for Chicago(iirc) and he still landed a terrible contract

    I have been interested in Grabner for a while. I'd take him on the Blues if the price was right.

    Patrick Maroon is the guy to get if he isn't too much money.

    I'm guessing Maroon stays in NJ. He seemed to add a nice element there and has a little history playing with Palmieri. I'm thinking Grabner goes to Edmonton. I'm sure Chia wants to add more speed, some scoring on the wing, and Grabs would be a boost to their abysmal PK. Was it Carolina that recently said they wanted to toughen up or something like that? I'll go with Rooster to the Canes. Reaves stays in Vegas.
