Didn't play much because the Kings are pretty deep in D, but I thought he was pretty nice to have in case a top guy got hurt. From what I've read, he busted his ass in practice (regardless of not playing) and the guys loved him. Hence............best 7th D-man EVER.

That's okay, I know how to pronounce it, but I've seen Vokoun spelled about 4 or 5 different ways this year.

Lord knows I won't find out from the Ducks announcers. They can't even say Beauchemin's name the same way twice.

I'm hoping my Habs don't do anything too crazy and way over pay for Clowe. Per latest rumor back home in La Belle Province. Nice and easy Molson family, we finally have something to build. Easy... easy...

Iginla has been dealt to the Penguins in exchange for a 2013 first round pick, and college players, Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski.

Me too.

From what I've read, Calgary is looking for two prospects and a pick.......or something like that. I've heard mention of Bernier and I say "No Way Jose". (He'll, Bernier, will probably be traded in the off season, but not now......especially with Quick not up to his 2012 self.)

I like the trade for Morrow personally.  The last deal we made with Dallas turned out pretty well.  James Neal has been a beast for the Pens.  I'm also inclined to think that with the acquisition of Murray, Despres may be on his way out.
