    I dunno. I'm still having trouble understanding the issue with moving a $4 million fourth liner.

    He's a 3rd liner. He's only a Quinn 4th liner.

    Whatever the case may be, we were paying him 4 mil to be on our 4th line, which is all that's really relevant here.

    I don’t care as much about cap (he’s already signed, and they’re under the cap), I care about replacing him with an inferior player.

    Seven pages on Vlad Namestnikov... A player everyone hated and wanted traded since the day he got here. Now he's traded and it's an issue? Go figure.

    This is what I'm getting at.

    The difference between what you're getting between Names and McKegg in 8 mins on the 4th line is negligible.

    8 minutes is a years worth of sex.

    Namestnikov can slot up and down the lineup and the others can't. He provides flexibility.

    Like I said, they have no interest in winning this year, or they handled the cap in a way that makes it impossible. Either way, same outcome.

    Dumping useful parts for hypotheticals in the next year, caused by having to buy out yet another useful part, spin it however you want, I find it disappointing.

    He can't play up and down the lineup successfully.

    If he's your barometer, Strome and Fast can as well, and combined make what Names made.

    If you want to blame the team for anything, it should be for signing him to that absurd deal in the first place.

    Didn't he center the first line with success in Tampa? Why couldn't he slot up & down here successfully if there was an injury to say Zib? I agree signing him to the contract was nuts, but getting rid of him at this point in the season is questionable in the least unless the freed salary cap will be spent on something bigger & better soon (as in a trade for a #2 center).

    Does it really matter what he did in Tampa?

    He was given time with Zib here... He was brutal no mater who he played with. It wasn't a fit.

    If people want to blame Quinn, OK... But the coach isn't going anywhere so Names had to.

    Not blaming Quinn. Different styles. I think it’s a sign, but oh well.
    But the timing, the comments made... doesn’t make a ton of sense. They’d be better off keeping him until the trade deadline, or June.

    Maybe...

    Or maybe they just did him a favor because he's a good guy. Allow him to up his UFA value.
