    Maybe the NHL is holding up the announcement of the biggest trade in hockey since Gretzky because of a #4 defenceman is getting married. That has to be it. Otherwise I wouldn’t understand anything.

    Out of respect for a guy that they left unprotected in an expansion draft or respect for a guy and his wife the team let get harassed online during the worst time of his life. Which guy?

    I guess we have different facts that we heard. And if we heard them, we can report them as fact right?

    I don’t know one person inside the team that doesn’t know this started in Sweden, so yeah, Dorion knew he had to trade Hoffman, had a trade agreed upon and then backed out because of on-ice chemistry. Dorion absolutely let this happen.

    I thought that from the minute the deal wasn't announced last night. Something's happening.

    Yes, which is maybe why it all fell through at the last minute. Not to just defend someone on here that lagoon wants to shame but several hockey insiders from the media got torn a new one last night for getting the news out before it happen but I have a theory. A fan theory.

    I think Dorion pulled the trigger on the trade with yzerman and they were about to make it go through to the nhl, Dorion calls Melnyk to confirm the good news and Melnyk goes; “so who’s taking bobby Ryan off of us?”
    Basically Melnyk May have asked Dorion to further investigate trading opportunities that might include Ryan.

    His may stall the process or it may derail it for a while or re-open other options with other teams but I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the hiccup. I’ve heard it being suggested by David Pagnotta that Ryan’s name is involved in the pieces that may have to move.

    I think Dorion may have made sure he had someone's attention. Dallas just doesn't seem right to me, but someone is out there right now rubbing their favourite lucky thing and wondering if he should trade PROSPECT X in this deal or not.

    Dorion might be viewed as a fool or a puppet - and he's made some bad trades, but he knows he's not in a neck breaking rush. If someone won't pony up enough, he can wait a bit.

    Nope. A call was made to the NHL offices to confirm the trade. That’s what was said on here. Once it is at that level, only the NHL can nix the deal, not a meddling owner.

    Dude, it's being reported everywhere that a deal is very close.  Quit living in your magical dreamland.  I assume even Lagoon has excepted the reality that he's getting moved this summer.

    This is such a dumb take that you're obviously just trolling now.
