    But we've got Saint "deer in the headlights" Ronnie, so all is good.
    Also acquired Fredrick Anderson from the ducks, and offloaded Jonathan Bernier. Added depth players like Winnik, Polack, Matt Martin. Oh yeah, and Patrick Marleau

    Anderson was a nice pickup. Bernier played well for Colorado this season. Martin has been a healthy scratch quite a bit. Polack is terrible. Marleau was a good signing, but they may have to trade him before they could really use him as they're going to have to sign Matthews, Nylander, and Marner soon.

    They also took garbage back for Clarkson because they could afford to pay Horton's salary which wasn't insured.

    Not arguing for Hextall or Lamoriello, just wanted to throw this out there.

    Lamoriello's son is currently an assistant to Garth Snow, so the son Chris may be the new GM (Snow is going to get fired), and Lou will be President.

    On the Michael Kay's radio show today Lou said he will be running the organization until his son is ready...............also, there's now speculation that Tavares will be staying put.

    Basically what it comes down to. One draft pick that was the cornerstone of multiple cups. To call Lou anything other than a great GM is foolish, but he got REALLY lucky that 19 other NHL teams passed on Broduer.

    This has to raise the odds on him staying put.

    He should be smart and go elsewhere but hockey players are often stupidly loyal. In this case to a horrific org that will never win while he is there if ever.
