    What's with the " get rid of Vesey " mentality? Some people are never satisfied. Guy plays hard and contributes. Do the NYR want that? According to some, he's garbage. Unbelievable!!

    GO RANGERS!!

    Doesn't seem to be happy in Winnipeg, leaving the AHL after 20 games and going back to Finland. Could be in a similar situation as Puljujärvi just not publicly...

    Wait and see with the McDonagh and Stepan trades. And might also get a 1st out of Zuccarello.

    not robberies, just hockey trades.
    and I wouldn't call trouba trade a robbery just yet. The reason Trouba came cheap is that there's no certainty he'll stick around after this season. the guy has a history of not wanting to play for teams

    That's the reason he could be had on the cheap. I think he's a risk worth taking. Especially if it's for a Vesey or Namestikov.

    Zibanejad deal and Trouba deal are both huge steals for Gorton.

    I disagree. Zib was considered damaged goods with his concussion problems. they traded him for a veteran with an exceptional playoff production to compete in the playoffs.

    Trouba deal looks really good now but what if he doesn't re-sign? would it be a steal then?

    No, he missed 4 or 5 games in the previous 3 seasons combined.

    He was considered "plateaued"

    69 games in his 3rd year with Ottawa. 80 and 81 the next two seasons. then 56 games with the rangers. There were definitely talks of him being concussion prone, etc.

    I mean, I'd drive Vesey to Edmonton myself but that said Puljujarvi probably needs less playing time or even AHL time to get his confidence back and begin his true development. He was resistant to both of those things in Edmonton -- and by resistant I mean he's threatening to breach his contract and go to Europe.

    By all accounts he's not ready to step into a major role for any team. Ray Ferraro said he wasn't even an NHL player on TSN radio yesterday. I have no problem putting him in Hartford but I have a problem with a rotten apple spoiling the bunch, especially when we're trying to create a new environment down there.

    I watched him live three or four time last year and I'd agree with Ferraro. I didn't see much of anything.

    My first reaction is to pass if he has a standing refusal to go to the AHL. If he wants a 2nd chance he needs to acknowledge that he blew his 1st and not come in with a bucket full of conditions.
