He'd be cheaper on a one-way deal

Domi traded to Montreal for Galchenyuk.

I think this is a trade that both teams win. Meh. Let me rephrase that. I think it's a neutral trade. Galchenyuk didn't want to be there. The team gets a comparable player in talent and age. The Canadiens are bare bones with skilled forwards, and it looks like they're going to lose a few more soon, so any position is a good place, even if they got rid of a "center."

Arizona gets a player who can score goals.

But then what do you do with him? Aside from that one stretch with Crosby, he wasn't very productive.

See if he works out. If not, healthy scratch. If not, release.

Arizona wins this IMO

Anyone hear exactly what happened to Jordy Bellerive? I heard he, along with two others were hurt at a stag party where a fire broke out. So far everything I have found is sketchy in detail.
The kid is being looked at as a possible top prospect after blowing it up in the WHL last year.

The Pens released something earlier today saying they'd been in contact with him, and someone following the team tweeted out that he isn't the guy in critical condition. Other than that, not much of substance.

Edit: Somebody threw gas on a bachelor party bonfire, so serious burns all around. Jordy's hand may be pretty badly messed up.

Trotz just stepped down.

I'm sure this is similar to Cowher or Dungy - the lack of a Cup became such an albatross, and now that he's finally won one he is ready to move on.

Most likely.
For being 55 years old he looks to be in his late 60's.

And how close did the Grubauer choice almost cost him?

Actually seems to be about money.

Quote:
Barry Trotz had a clause in his contract where if he won the Stanley Cup he could accept a two-year extension with a $300k bump in salary. Obviously since he was only making $1.5M, low by today's NHL coach's standards, a $1.8-million salary doesn't cut it. So Trotz stepped down.
