Given that the Sabres just got 2 first rounders and a roster player AND a prospect for Miller and Ott, I just don't see Bergevin paying that high a price for anybody that is available out there.

You're 100% right. These kinds of trades never happen because the GM pulling the trigger sends a message to his team that he does not believe they can win. Why make the playoffs at all if your own GM doesn't have faith in the team.

Mike Fisher had 2 years left on his contract when he got traded to the Predators. It's just so rare to see GMs trade away key pieces of their team at the deadline. Kudos to a Sharks GM that was able to trade spare parts for a big haul last year. Not sure any GM would trade a player the calibre of Markov right now.

Kesler still has the most goals on that squad and is one point behind the Sedins for the team lead in scoring. 40 goal Kesler he is not, but the guy is still a 30 goal guy who backchecks and is one of the best checking centres in the NHL. The return amounts to "spare parts" for Kesler. The 30th pick overall is rarely that good.

Clowe had zero goals for SJ at the time and Murray was a healthy scratch for long stretches of the season. Markov is a bit more important to this team I would think.

It's their current third line centre, a late first round pick, a late 3rd round pick and a defenseman (pittsburgh has them to spare with Maatta Pouliot and others) That's not that big a haul for Kesler. Would be a master stroke for Shero.

I cannot think of any GM in the salary cap era that has traded a marquee pending UFA when his team was headed to the playoffs. Can anybody name such a trade?

Kesler might be a Torts player but maybe not the other way around. The speculation is that Kesler wants to get out of the Vancouver spotlight and play in the US.

Luongo is right to want to play in the outdoor game. No matter how good lack was in his last two games, you don't want an unhappy Luongo in the dressing room. This is a bonehead move by Tortorella, who is trying to show that he is the most important person in the room. Makes one wonder if that's why Kesler wants out.

There are a lot of haters out there, but many would be surprised to know that these Montreal Canadiens are the hottest team in the league over the last 10 games! 7-1-2 with victories over quality teams like Boston and Pittsburgh. (Both with our backup goalie no less!) Over the last 6, we are 5-0-1. At some point, people need to realize that Montreal is the kind of team that finds a way to win, and in the playoffs, that's the kind of team you want to be.
