I don't see the need for it.  I just don't get the idea of trading for less skill.

Miracle on Ice. Those rings with the Isles. Proven winner.

No one needs to hear from the fresh kill contingent.

Not a big fan of it.  I like the way Bennett is playing as well so I hope this doesn't bump him from the line-up.  If you're going to move a top prospect you might as well throw in a 1st and go all in with Iginla.  Morrow's skil lset seems to be in decline and I can't see him playing on the third line either.

Over the past few weeks, various sites had noted the lack of sellers versus previous years.  I guess that drives the price up, supply versus demand and all that.  I think Hoe Morrow is a really high price to pay for a guy on the decline.  Pens are knee -deep in D-men but I think you get more in return than Brendan Morrow

Also think the trade for Douglas Murray is unnecessary.  Eaton has been a nice add.  Depres shouldn't sit.  If you need muscle, Engelland or Burtuzzo.  Usually Shero looks good during trade deadline time.  Not this year.

Yeah not liking the Murray trade either.  He's frankly not very good at anything besides hitting people.  I really hope they don't send Depres or Bennett down because of this shit, since they are the only 2 on the 25 man that wouldn't have to clear waivers.  But somethings gotta give with Morrow in the mix, Tanger and Malkin coming back, and now Murray as well.

It would seem we could afford to deal a player off our NHL roster, with all the overcrowding.  Maybe Shero still isn't done.  Though with 12 straight wins, it's hard to see what they could be doing better.

The Murray trade makes me wonder if there aren't doubts about Eaton's long-term viability.

Well I'd release Tanner Glass because he's worthless (he might as well be skating around out there with a baseball bat) and try to sneak Bortuzzo through waivers.  That's not what's going to happen though.  Maybe a guy like TK or Jeffrey gets moved.

I'd way rather see Kennedy go than Jeffrey.

And like clockwork, Depres sent down.  Great timing sending your 3rd or 4th best defenseman down when your trying to hold off Montreal for the # 1 seed tonight.  What the hell does Bylsma and Shero have against playing rookies?
