The NHL should intervene and fire management if ownership doesn't.
Maybe they'll give him the 9 games to see...

Did you watch the TSN top 50 players video?
Duthie took a random Lightning game and asked Stamkos what he did in that game and Stamkos described the 2 goals he scored perfectly Vertigo

they Cussed up by trading gagne. No idea why they did that, Tampa was trying to get rid of Purcell. Now they effectively placed themselves in a situation without a number 2 C

I'm talking about Edmonton entering the season without a number 2c.

Ah. Yeah, that was dumb, no doubt about it. But who expects anything different out of EDM these days? Laugh1

So, CHI just signed Carcillo, leaving them about $1.8 mil over the cap. My guess is they need to clear closer to $3 mil off the books to have injury/call up breathing room.

As much as I'd like Hjalmarsson, CHI has 7 D but 14 forwards, with Teravainen pressing hard, so I'm thinking it has to be someone like Sharp, Hossa, or Bickell. Either that, or you have to dump two forwards, like Versteeg and Shaw.

Granted, if Hjalmarsson is the one moving out, I think OTT should be in there offering an LW Dman not named Methot -- yes, including Cowen, although me makes too much for that to work.

EDIT: sounds like it might be Leddy. http://kuklaskorner.com/hockey/comments/nick-leddy-appears-to-be-on-the-way-out-in-chicago. But on his own, he's not enough to fix CHI's cap situation. It has to be Leddy+ moving out.

EDIT 2: BMac says it's close... Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 3m3 minutes ago
Expectation is CHI close to trading D Nick Leddy, who has been held out of pre-season games (to protect asset). That would ease cap crunch.

BOS is another team who needs to make a move... Putting Savard on LTIR just gets them to the cap, but they're going to need to clear $1-2 mil in space for injuries/calls ups too.

BOS has 8 serviceable Dmen... They might trade Boychuk if they are convinced they won't be able to re-sign him. McQuaid is the other candidate. They have a few expendable high priced forwards, like Eriksson and Kelly, but they appear to have less roster-ready guys there, so I'm think it has to be a D who moves by Tuesday next week.

Would have to be Leddy+forward. They could also send Regin and Rundblad down to the AHL and bring them up as injury replacements. Next season it could be a lot worse if the cap doesn't go up as much as hoped for any reason.

I don't think you can bury money in the minors like you used to be able to under the old CBA. I think there is still some financial consequences to the NHL club if you try to do so. But I don't have that CBA passage at hand or anything.

BOS and CHI lighting up the waiver wire as we speak...

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie  1m1 minute ago
BOS puts Jordan Caron on waivers.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie  2m2 minutes ago
CHI puts Leighton and Regin on waivers.

Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 2m minutes ago
Warsofsky and Cunningham also on waivers in BOS.

EDIT: Cunningham and Caron are forwards #12 and #13 on the CapGeek roster. Warsofsky is, by contrast, is not counting towards the cap there.

For CHI, Leighton is also not on CapGeek's NHL roster and so waiving him doesn't change the situation.

Caron...isn't he pretty good?  Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.

Edit: appears to be run of the mill. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=96371
