I asked the same question in another forum and the Piestany thing was mentioned too. I found it a strange thing to remember much less denigrate a player for. That Don Cherry flogged it makes allll the sense in the world.

Time for my annual game of "What The Hell Did Turgeon Do To The Hall of Fame Voters??" How is it that every year at this time he hear about all the players on the Hall of Fame bubble, and never ever do you hear the name Pierre Turgeon. He hit pretty much every marker needed for Hall entry - 515 goals, 1327 pts, 1.02 PPG...and yet, nuthin'. It's weird.

30. Nick Schmaltz, RW, Green Bay (USHL) – University of North Dakota commit may be the most skilled player in draft, but needs a linemate to lead him. Sounds like the perfect fit alongside Galchenyuk and Gallagher :)

If we're talking unsung heroes (and both Weaver and Weise absolutely are), then maybe we can spare a moment and appreciate just how useful Bournival has been - the boy's a Player. We fleeced Colorado on that'n.

I'm sure this has been discussed ad nauseum (I've been absent all season and have missed the fireworks), but where does The Commentariat stand on the return of Cammalleri as a rental?

Ah, I suspect that's the real reason. I was kinda hoping for the "HIO reason" if you know what I mean :)

Thanks Punk! This might be the only place that is as delightfully insane as my real home!

Hey All, Haven't been around in a while, was wonderin' what the consensus was as to why neither Tinordi nor Beaulieu are with the big team?

It's a gamble that didn't seem necessary. And the asking price was two very serviceable parts that could have been used for more pressing matters (like a top pairing defensive defenceman or maybe a legit first line centre). Not to mention that they're basically inviting a winter of goalie controversy in the hockey media capital. Didn't make sense to me, but outside of re-signing Gunnarson...nothing that team did this year does.
