    So LA traded Nate Thompson to move up about 10 spots, give or take, late in the draft? Seems kinda pointless.

    Thankfully Nate Thompson waived his NTC.

    What fool of a GM would ever give Nate Thompson a NTC?? Oh ya, nevermind...

    Shredding salary and rebuilding, along with the Muzzin trade. They're not done. Guys like Carter are saying this might be their last season, last season with the kings or last season on a different team?

    Phaneuf is on pace for roughly 5 points.

    Kovalchuk is in decline.

    Isn't a full NTC and has been traded twice with it. He's still a good 2 way player when healthy.

    2-way would imply some level of offensive ability. I'd call him more of a good defensive player at this point.

    Bergevin loves shaking up his 4th line though (going back to that deadline where he added Martinsen/King/ect. I'm not sure a guy like Thompson moves the needle for them, but at that price it's worth a shot.

    Thompson - Weise - Deslauriers 4th line is almost as bad as Pyatt-Dumont-Thompson.

    Nate Thompson's contract was Pierre Dorion's love letter to Guy Boucher.

    At least the Habs 4th line will actually hit someone and agitate if need be.

    No he's really not. Unless 6 pts in 53gp is your idea as "good 2 way player".

    I'm sure the NHL will just call it strike one.

    Sharks win again and are now 1st in the West and 2nd in the NHL.

    No reports of their locker room being broken.

    That's because Karlsson is injured and not in the locker room ;)

    In all seriousness, this is truly a Cup or bust year for San Jose, especially if Karlsson has told them he won't talk contract until after the season as is now being reported.

    Karlsson is still waiting for Eugene to sell.

    Hopefully the Lebreton settlement sees Melnyk ride off into the sunset and EK can come back to his forever home.
