  1. 3/2 on Lu not being traded isn’t bad. I just don’t see anyone else being stupid enough to get saddled with that long term (read: eat cap money each year after he retires) contract at this point. I can see him being bought out first ala Vinny.

  2. LOL at the Kings landing Iggy. They don’t have enough cap space to re-sign their current players, let alone add a big name.

  3. As a Devil’s fan, I wouldn’t mind seeing Briere if the price is right. I want to resign Elias and Clarkson, and from there, I’d like to see Briere and maybe another decent depth forward added. I think Briere wants to stay local, NJ would allow him to do that. I think it’ll work for everyone.

  4. I’d like to see the odds on where Vinny will land.

  5. I’d like to hear the thought process that led to the Red Wings ending up as the favorites to land Bryan Bickell. I doubt Ken Holland will take part in that overpayment waiting to happen

  6. And the “No” pays out for the Cannucks, in a surprising twist. Unless things are really about to go nuts in Vancouver…
