    If Palmieri and Zajac can return a first what could Carter and Brown get? Wonder if the Kings would consider offers.

    Together probably not a lot because they have big cap hits beyond this year.

    Something decent for Brown and a half eaten edible arrangement for Carter. No pineapple or strawberries, just cantaloupe.

    Gonna be really weird seeing Zajac in a different jersey after so long. Truly underrated player, really would have shone in a 2C role on another contender after that Devils run

    Palmieri/Zajac being impending UFAs might have helped their value. The Islanders could temporarily squeeze them because of the Lee injury, but they wouldn't have been able to do that with Carter/Brown.

    With a flat cap, it's going to be tough to find teams who could fit in Carter/Brown without major retention.

    It is a good add, given their path. Palmieri esp, is a very good 5 x 5 scorer and should do well to provide critically needed scoring. Zajac has always been a good solidier, gave his all for the team, good leader, role model . He'll be a good fit ina supporting role.

    Agree, he's been a devil forever, 2004? And should be easier for him, to be a good supporting player. Good solider, bleeds hard for the team, leaves it all on the ice. That won't change, which will help the Isles bottom 6. Papa Lou is familar with both and unlike Boston, was willing to give up a 1st. It's a good trade for both teams but I think will benefit the Isles. That team has everything you need for a deep run, except scoring. Palmieri is not only a good producer in all situations but he's also pretty good defensively. And he's on a better team, more skill, etc.

    Hall? I wonder if the Sabres are willing to take a bad contract to get a better deal? That might tip the scales.

    Palmieri was having a tough season but him and Hughes just had zero chemistry at even strength. Palmieri produced fine with Hischier at center. Oddly the new coaching staff had been using Palmieri in front of the net on the PP while putting Zacha as the triggerman on the halfwall which was previously Palmieri's role.

    Good to see Zajac gets a shot at a deep run with a solid Islanders club. Best of luck to him.

    Congrats to Campbell on his 10th win in a row.

    Seems like a deserving guy.

    He thanked the Kings for reviving his career in his post-game interview. Just thought I'd pass that along.

    Nice return for Chicago for taking Connolly's contract. Stillman is a good young defenseman. Nothing flashy but can play a solid defensive game.

    I like the deal from a Florida perspective, new GM frees up 3.5 mil in budget space for the next couple of seasons. Borgstrom is teetering on "former first round prospect, some decent upside" and "former first round prospect, might clear waivers in the near future." Florida signed undrafted free agent D Matt Kiersted last week and he's already taking a regular shift, so that might have made Stillman expendable.

    Watching FLyers/Isles. DIdn't recognize Palmieri, who is without his signature long beard Papa Lou's rules, no facial hair. He looked out of place...

    7 minutes in, Flyers down 2=0 and Morin just got a 5 minute major. Isles on the PP...this should be fun.

    Blackhawks also got better. Kings could have used what they acquired. Blake's no Bowman.

    I don't mind Connolly, but he's pricey at 3.5 million and everybody passed on him on waivers a few weeks back. I'd rather have that cap space at the cost of Borgstrom. Kings already having problems fitting a guy like Lias Andersson, Borgstrom basically in the same boat. With Byfield, Turcotte, Kaliyev, and others on the horizon, the forward spots will be spoken for pretty soon.

    Canucks fans are hating on the new extension Benning just gave to Tanner Pearson at three years, $3.25M AAV, and he gets a NTC. Yikes.

    Amadio debuted for the Sens tonight. Played 18+ minutes and won 57% of his draws! All zero stat line in a 3-1 loss.
