The Sharks have pulled themselves out of their slump with four games in a row with points, and a two-game winning streak. ┬áBut that’s not all; there is a ton of NHL news and stories to discuss as well.

      Doug’s reference: Arrested Development
      Mike’s reference: Howard Stern Show (I think it’s the 911 audio from the phone call that fat lawyer made when he was boating and the engine caught fire)

      I agree with Doug on the Phalsson trade proposal, neither Nitty nor Greiss has the high upside cachet that has drawn good offers from bad GM’s such as Varlamov. And if I’m the GM of Columbus, why trade a decent 3rd line center for a career 1B goaltender or a guy that wasn’t even good in Europe when I can go big and try to get a Tuuka Rask or Corey Schneider or Jonathan Bernier? Or a proven guy like Evgeni Nabokov? Or a guy who is on fire like Brian Elliot? Or let Steve Mason sink my ship another year so I can get a stud D prospect?

      Best case scenario is a team like the Canucks trades Schneider, and wants a clear backup and takes Nitty for a 6th. Most likely I think is that Nitty is McLaren’ed and sent through waivers to Wochesterer or Greiss is traded to a team like Dallas going through major injury issues and need someone cheap and competent.

      As an aside, I really think the waiver system in the NHL is backwards. You can send a guy down to the minors, and once there he is exiled as no one will dare put him through re-entry waivers and have to pay him to play for someone else. For veterans, at least, it should be the other way. If you send a guy down, teams can claim him for half the cost, thus a team is punished for trying to hide bad contracts and the veteran doesn’t have his career ended by having to play out the string in the minors because he actually accepted the money offered to him. If he clears waivers, team can shuttle him back and forth the rest of the year.

      So, I assume this was the game you were expecting against the Wild?
