    I think it's the end of the line for Cowen in Ottawa. They have to know by now that scratching him will do nothing to motivate him or to do any kind of critical self-evaluation. I'm holding out hope for a money in, money out deal for a relatively expensive vet, who can contribute, from a bottom-feeding team who might see a project they can afford to invest a little time in, along with some youth and size...

    Easy on the Claesson love. It's 1 game against a team that is playing a no forecheck trap style for 90% of the game.

    He was making tape-to-tape passes and looked very comfortable with the puck. More than anyone can say about Cowen all year.

    Somebody will take him via trade. What we get back I have no idea. Maybe Tim Murray in Buffalo takes. Cowen needs to go to a team that has the money and is willing to pay his salary for a year. He's an RFA after this contract meaning they're not going to lose him for nothing. Some other options could be Pittsburgh who has a terrible blueline, just cleared some money (Dupuis), and has no one in their system defensively. I see Columbus as an option as well, Detroit, and always think the Oilers are a good fit for a d-man. Colorado too but I don't think they have the money for a reclamation project.

    Cowen+Lazar for Yakupov. Do you do it?

    The Oilers wouldn't do that I don't think, but you never know I suppose. I doubt Lazar is moved either. Honestly, I see Cowen being moved for another bad contract, as SSF said, or he'll eventually just be waived like Greening was.

    So we slip out of the Wildcard spot with this loss. I know it's a tight race but with the way we have been playing... Rough.

    This is our rough stretch. We'll turn it on down the stretch, roll into the playoffs, and then bring home Lord Stanley. Piece of cake.
