A short fuse to scatter steady hands if I forget to remember that better lives have been lived in the margins and locked in the prisons and lost on the gallows than have ever been enshrined in palaces

Iím actually feeling pretty good about this Staal trade. Mojo was supposed to play C with Skinner but was not really working out. Iím convinced the entire point of this trade was to help Skinner play better by getting a veteran center who played with Skinner for years and years. Heís 36 but he had 44p in 66 games last season which is still impressive. His contract costs a million less than Mojoís and if thereís only one year left on it thatís fairly low risk.

This... was a good move?

It'd be funny if Staal retired rather than play in Buffalo and brought the Sabres down to 3 forwards under contract.

apparently he moved in with his mom's family (he met her when he played with the Blues), started seeing a therapist, and coached his son's AAA team to get his mind right. good to see that he's back.

Marcus Johansson is their dream acquisition. You don't really know much about him but he seemed sorta alright from what you can remember.

Awesome. Alcoholism is a fight that never really ends, so while I'm not arguing against his firing I also wanted him back working as soon as he felt he could hack it.

Apparently Libor Hajek let it slip in an interview with a Czech sports magazine that Lundqvist is done with the Rangers. He says that after the last Carolina game, Henrik said his goodbyes to the team and told them he wouldn't be back next year. The beat writers have been saying for a while that it was like a 95% certainty that he would be bought out, but I always hoped in the back of my head that idiots like Brooks and Carp were wrong and just trying to sound "in the know".

Really sucks that he was never able to get the Cup with the Rangers, but I hope some competing team picks him up cheap to be their 1B so he can have one more shot at it.

I know that the media around Colorado seems to have been beating the drum for the Avalanche to sign Lundqvist as a 1B.

I expect he will land pretty well on a real contender

Wherever he goes Iíll be rooting for him...unless it the islanders/Flyers. That will hurt too much.
