Well, yeah, there was that, too. There were rumors he pouted during his second half slump in Norfolk, too. That said, I still doubt that completely diluted his perceived value from outside the...

I agree that was probably the case, but that doesn't mean his value wasn't higher from the perspective of outside the organization. I have a feeling more could've been gotten for Ashton, but some pro...

It would have been nice to convert him into something better than Aulie and I do believe there was opportunity to do so. Ashton was really en fuego the first half of that season and I doubt his value...

He wasn't "given" a spot. He had a great camp, but wasn't awarded a spot for that great camp. If he duplicates that camp, there's no way he misses the team... because he's waiver eligible... which...

It's nice to know you have the ability to summarily judge a player's ceiling at 120 NHL games and 24 years old, in Killorn's case, and 68 NHL games and 24 years old in Brown's case. You might not be...

He finished, what, 1 breakaway all season? He blew another dozen or two, easily. And you want to criticize Killorn's lack of finish (Killorn and his 17 goals)? Criticizing Brown's lack of ability to...

OK.




Connolly wasn't waiver eligible last year.



I'm going to call that facts not in evidence. As I've noted, Kucherov evaporated as last season went along.

Fact of the matter is, J.T. Brown was a better forward late in the season and in the playoffs than Kucherov was. Ruminate on that. Let it breath and then take anther waft of the aroma, just to be...

He didn't exactly help himself having to get wrist surgery right out of the box this summer. He'd have to look like Cam Neely reincarnate to have any chance, and even then it would be an extremely...

Camp is going to be extremely anti-climactic, barring injuries. By my count, there's only one spot open for any competition:

Forwards (13):
12 Locks: Drouin, Stamkos, Killorn, Palat, Filppula,...

I do believe that, on paper, the Lightning improved more than any team in the Atlantic Division so far this offseason. Kind of scary when you consider Yzerman didn't get his first choices.

I think it would've worked out. As has been noted, Drouin can play at just about any pace you like. He's special in that regard.

And I might've been ok with that, too, because Iginla got, what, 3 years? And he was far more productive last season than Callahan. It's a stretch to play Callahan on the top line with Stamkos and...

I once heard that safe is death.

Look, as has been stated, even Yzerman himself has a mild degree of disappointment with what he got. He wanted Iginla. He wanted Niskanen. Boyle and Stralman...

Worst case scenario, you're sitting on a ton of cap room to sign someone else with, and with that much cap room you can surely find someone at least as good as a 17 goal, 36 point winger. It's not a...

Tim, it worked out that way because of the roster and salary cap dynamics of the teams involved, NOT because there was any sort of strife between the Stralman and Niskanen camps. Agents aren't dumb....

WORD.

BTW, Steven Stamkos has more NHL games played right now than Vinny and Brad had going into the 2003-2004 season. So does Filppula, obviously.
