Stanley Cup is in Peterborough today. For Hockey Day in Canada.

"Bruins trade Thomas to Islanders ". Can Tim recover from his meltdown. Looks like Wade Redden is doing pretty good at the moment. So there is hope.

I don't think there is any intention of Thomas actually playing; it's more of a move to get the Islanders to the spending floor. They can also carry the contract over to next year for the same reason if they want to.

This is how retarded the salary cap floor is... Teams picking up deadbeat contracts or overpaying less than average players just to satisfy some stupid minimum... doesn't make them any better.

in all honesty, it is to keep everyone honest...otherwise, you could fill your roster with low cost AHL players, finish dead last several years in a row and stockpile top tier draft picks.

There's that, and there's also the angle of the PA wanting to ensure that their members get paid well. If a team had an entire roster of AHL players making NHL league minimum, chances are the team wouldn't draw well, would be a money loser and a drain on league revenues, and the cap wouldn't rise as quickly or as much as it did over the previous CBA (remember: the floor is now higher than the cap when we started).

Ok, but they could make the salary floor much lower... The problem is that the floor is relative to the cap, so the higher the cap, the higher the floor... Just make it lower, right now its 44 million, still way too high for a lot of the struggling teams. if it were 30 million that'd be more like it.

The hawks just keep rolling along. Finally get to go home for a 7 game homestead. Kane, as much as I have been annoyed with, is playing top notch. Enough to be a Hart candidate. Europe did him some good.

It looks like "the other" Brian Elliott has shown up in St Louis. Last year, there was the I'm-not-under-pressure-so-I'll-just-do-my-thing Brian Elliott, who played well enough to earn a contract as a walk-on and then an all-star game berth, and deserved it for the numbers he was putting up. Right now, we see the the other one, who crumples under pressure like he did when Pascal Leclaire went down with an injury and he was forced into a starting role. The Blues had better pray that Halak's injury won't keep him out more than a few games.

The trade for Anderson couldn't look better.

Blues Jamie Langenbrunner to undergo hip surgery.... The young Blues lack experience and some of the young Blues were looking to Langenbrunner for guidance and leadership....

Anderson is awesome. I recall when he was with the Avs and he stood on his head in a playoff series against the Sharks....

However the Blues can not fault Elliott for their recent string of losses. I've watched all Blues games to date except for the season opener against the Red Wings.

The Blues just don't look as sharp or intense as they did earlier.... Sure Elliott was to blame for a goal or two but there hasn't been much in support for him...

Bernie Federko (Blues commentary on tv broadcasts) blames it on the inexperience of the Blues...

It is an hurtle for the young team & adversity will only make you stronger... Too much talent on the Blues for them to remain in this funk...

The Blues goal scoring is medicore at even strength but deadly when on the pp...
