    Makes no sense to me. Why not keep him to expose him to Seattle at least?

    Should’ve kept Hayes and Pionk, smh. Every player we got from WPG has underachieved

    They have plenty of forwards who qualify?

    Making room for Kravdaddy. I liked him but he’s outlived his usefulness

    Clears cap for this year and next season. Any extra room is helpful with a lot of important contracts coming up

    Only to have Kravstov play 4th line minutes with a mishmosh of Howden, PDG, Gauthier, and Rooney?

    The Rangers don't need the cap space and they could have kept Lemieux until the offseason to expose him to Seattle at worst case. Something stinks.

    Bonehead move.

    One of the best pests in the league and I see him being a huge playoff performer down the road just like his dad. I remember on Spittin Chiclets they were raving about his return after the suspension when he played in the bubble, he completely tilted the ice and we played with a different swagger when he's in the lineup. Lemmy sacrificed so much for this team, that shift where he injured his foot blocking a shot and literally crawled and leaped into another shot block after he already couldn't even stand; sums up who he is as a player. Or that gif of him with a black eye, cuts on his face, casually spitting out blood on the bench.

    He is the over the top caricature of what a hockey player is. He's sort of a throwback. I think playing on a line with him was a big influence on Buch's transformation into USA Buch. People complained about our coaches usage of Buch but he became a different player when he was on Lemmy's line and started getting physically engaged in play. Lemmy is a hilarious dude and will be greatly missed by me. Lindgren is a similar type of thorn in peoples sides but I hope we manage to find another player who agitates like Lemieux.

    I’m not usually the guy to say this...but damn this team is soft without BL. Even while he was here is was embarrassing some games.

    Something is really wrong with this. I know he’s made some bad plays but for a 4th only? They literally just gave the guy away.

    To be clear, I'm not questioning trading Lemieux nor the return, I think it's fair. I'm questioning the timing of this.

    A 4th for Lemieux is good value.

    Makes room for Kravtsov now. Lemieux isn't being protected in expansion.

    Will miss the extra penalty drawing, but it's whatever.

    Move along.

    That is an underwhelming return to say the least

    Very strange. Any injuries out in LA to explain it?

    I wanted a high 3rd rounder for Lemieux so this is a bit of a disappointing return for me.

    For those saying Kravtsov will play on the 4th- I doubt it. If Kravtsov plays I expect it to be on the 3rd line RW in place of Gauthier.

    Additionally, this opens the space to give Barron some time with the big club if they decide to go that route.

    He's easily replaceable. Would have liked something more than a 4th but getting his cap hit off the books isn't a small thing either.
