thanks Chad for the imput. I only memtioned Pete as he has been on here all night keeping us update. I would love to hear anyone's thought on the issue.

Will be really interesting as to what some do over the week end. Looks like it may be a do dog fight for some players services come July 1st.

If we can change our defense over to a hard hitting stand then up at the blue line with the forwards back checking I think Smith and Ramo will be just fine.

Phoenix is really, really quietly becoming a good team. That Pacific Division is going to be a monster next season.

LOL, and an extra LOL @ the panther fans who thought Martin wouldn't trade him unless it was for a huge return. What a lousy return for Florida.

Thanks for the recaps of the picks & trades. Glad I stuck around a tv long enough to watch Stamkos getting drafted, I come home & it turns out the power was out and the cable's still out so no tape for me.

Yeah, I think Florida is a joke. Every two years they're trading one of their franchise players. First Luongo. Now Jokinen. Give it a couple of years and Horton will be on the way out too. Phoenix already had some nice pieces in place and now they add a legitimate 30 goal scorer with grit to the mix. I like what they did. If they were in the East, they'd be a legit playoff contender.

I didn't like what the Kings did dealing Cammalleri. I think to give up a proven scorer like that for a mid first round pick was ludicrous. Just plain bad. Good move for Calgary.

And the Alex Tanguay deal for Montreal? We'll have to see if Tanguay re-elevates his game. Calgary couldn't afford him anymore, so kudos for them getting a replacement for half the price.

Except because of the arbitration case last summer, Cammaleri is UFA next summer, and he likely won't remain a 3.35M player.

Yeah, I can't understand these teams giving up No. 2s and 3s to move up one or two spots. After the top six, these guys seem interchangeable.

I had heard Vancouver was going to get Olli Jokinen for Ryan Kesler and the 10th pick.
That sounded good to me.
Hodgson/Myers or Beach and Kesler for Jokinen. Not sure, Ballard is a pretty good d man.
