Per McKenzie, VGK seems to be the 3rd man in the deal, with salary retention being their part. Given Melnyk's cheap ass, it makes sense.

I saw that just now on NHL network.
So we won't see Brassard until 2-27 at home against Jersey?


Could be. Pirates fans and Sens fans could start a cheap ass owners support group.

New theory making the rounds is that they’re basically laundering money through Vegas.

Teams can only eat up to 50% of a player’s salary in a trade, and that can only be done twice. So theory is that Senators are eating a portion of his salary, then trading him to Vegas who will eat even more of his salary, then Pittsburgh gets him, with Cole going to Vegas and Ottawa getting the draft pick and goalie prospect.

Also theories that maybe there’s more pieces involved.

If Vegas is involved maybe Ian Cole lands there.

Now seeing some tweets saying the NHL rejected the deal and are forcing the teams to restructure it into a more conventional format...though it's still being reported that the deal expected to get done.

It took Rutherford about 8 months, but he's managed to put a plan into place that matches what this team is all about. Something I mentioned after the Reaves trade went down, and something he neglected this entire offseason. On paper, they can roll 4 lines that can score and bring speed. That is the team's identity. This may be the best of the three Penguins teams (on paper) of the last three seasons. The center depth (somehow!) is better than it was the past two seasons. Amazing!

Reaves is a healthy scratch tonight. Jason Mackey was on Madden's radio show today thinking Reaves would be a good trade target to a team out west, especially a return to the Blues. It'd be even better if JR could reverse his mistakes full circle from the offseason and get rid of that bum.

Love it.

Rest of the conference isn’t so excited about, I suspect.
