I completely missed that Hartnell was traded for Umberger.

‏@NHLonTSN

Trade Details: Canadiens acquire P.A. Parenteau and a 5th round pick in 2015 from Colorado, for Daniel Briere. #TSN #NHL #FAF

So Montreal gets the better player and a pick. The NHL is weird.

Probably because Parenteau is signed for a couple more years. I think Briere's in the last year of his contract. Plus Colorado hates Parenteau, or something.

Toronto buys out Gleason. Gorges refuses to wave NTC to go there.

Apparently Toronto has spent $33m on buyouts since 2008. Lol.

Colorado probably wanted another center too, given that they stand to lose Stastny.

Yeah but if you're losing a centre like Stastny, getting Briere to replace him is really stupid.

Right, but Briere was so bad in Philly and Montreal that I think he plays wing exclusively now. There are better UFA options available. I don't think the Avs are hurting at centre either with Duchene and O'Reilly...

In any case, lol @ Kesler -> Bonino

Gagner trade to stab for Purcell the immediately shipped to Pho for a 6th.

For my money, Niskanen is the worst contract of the day. He has ONE good season piling up PP points with Malkin and Crosby.

Niskanen might be a decent acquisition. He's posted great possession numbers relative to the rest of his team year after year. Washington will probably be disappointed when he doesn't produce points but I think he's not bad in controlling play.

That's quite a bit of money though for a goalie who has only started 135 games (playoffs and regular season). Not saying I wouldn't do it, but sample sizes are important when it comes to goalies, so it's not an absolute slam dunk.

He's lead or been at the top of the league in pretty much every stat, though, so not unreasonable risk. If it was a slam dunk, it would have been a couple million more a year like the guy in NYR.

That entire list of analysts and insiders is pretty horrific really, save for a few choice exceptions. Sportsnet staying loyal to the guys who could never lead them out of second (or third) place.

That's typical Sportsnet, though. They realize that they can't compete on a journalistic level, so they need trolls like Cox to manufacture page views with ignorant opinions. Elliotte Friedman is a stronger man than any of us.

Of course they are. Instead of spending money on the people they just bought up the rights, it doesn't matter who the talking heads are anymore because they have no competition. Glenn Healy forever!

They all re-upped long term within a few weeks after the rights announcement, if I recall. That was the window if they were going to poach talent.

I don't get the feeling Sportsnet values that kind of analyst, though.

Indeed, I think they're quite the fan of talking heads in the style of a talk show host who pisses people off and drives page views.

AV deployed Schroeder in such a way that his strengths with the puck outweighed his physical weakness, I'm still not gonna say otherwise. I never said he was going to be a star, just that he could be productive at the NHL level. Two years ago, that certainly looked like the case. He was horrible last year of course, but so was everyone.
