what the hell! why do we need him? this spells the end of Ouellet's and Jokinen's stay in Tampa. Thanks for playing for us.

I've been pleased with most of the moves so far.... but enough is enough. Rangers tried to buy a Stanley Cup too and failed.

That is my only guess. They have to be close to a trade with Ouellet/Jokinen.

I guess I'm kind of confused as to why they are so keen on getting rid of 2 potential 20 goal 50 point players who are in their twenties, for guys like Roberts and Recchi who have barely any gas left in the tank and will retire after the season.

MUCH rather have Ouellet and Jokinen. This is just goofy. If Dudley is a Pokemon trader, then Oren and Len are the kids that can't stop buying booster packs, no matter how useless they are.

1 year, 1.25 for a guy who was waived by Pitt last year.

40 points in 53 games in a scoring role with ATL after being claimed.
