What Jamal Mayers had to say on Twitter about the Patrick Sharp stuff:

I typically don't like to engage in the rumor mill but enough is enough! The Blackhawks DO NOT have a locker room issue(s)!

The irresponsibility of media today on social media is embarrassing!

Racing to get the latest scope on a trade is one thing but when things become personal and affect families it's disgraceful!!

I did my due diligence and have come to the conclusion there is NO issue in Blackhawks dressing room!

A steep price by the Hawks. I was like I don't know if I'd do that. But then I remembered that some guys will have yo be gone to free up cap space won't they? Gotta go for it while you can I guess.

Friedman said last night a playoff team in the East was making a push for Yandle. Bruins can't have the space, Caps don't need, NYR doesn't have the space, Isles have no need so that only leaves a few teams. TBL, Detroit or maybe the Pens? Habs are an outside possibility but don't see as much of a need there. Come on Ken Holland.

Thanks for the help last night

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun is saying the Wings are making a hard push for Yandle. So that could make today or tomorrow fun for me if that happens. Here is hoping.

Islanders have played 18 games in last 33 days. Man, that seems like a lot.

Apparently, we won't be making any moves because everyone is asking for 1 of our 4 top untouchable studs, all of whom should be either top 6 f or top 4 d.

TMoore4075 03-01-2015 12:05 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Your stat made me think of what I read yesterday. Wings have played 17 out of their last 23 on the road and went 15-6-2 during that stretch. This fucking team. ;)

Hawks clearly wanting Kane's season to not be over yet.

And yes, they'll have to clear some cap space still. Bickell is the most obvious first choice to go.

Glencross to Caps. Nice pickup that addresses a need.

barbogast 03-01-2015 02:43 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Return on Glencross is a 2nd and a 3rd. I'm honestly not overly thrilled about it. He's fine I guess but he's not top line material, plus he's traditionally a left winger yes? Meh, whatever. I guess adding him can't hurt but it still doesn't fix the top line RW issue

barbogast 03-01-2015 02:47 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Honestly won't surprise me if they flip Glencross for something better. Just really not understanding why they added another bottom 9 LWer. We've got a bunch of those

TMoore4075 03-01-2015 02:47 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Giving up 2 picks this year seems like a lot for that people consider a top 9 guy.

He waived his NTC to go to the Caps so guessing he's staying.

Oh yeah, forgot about the NTC. Well, whatever I guess. Still just not really understanding what need he really fills. We're in desperate need of a top line RWer. Glencross ain't that.

barbogast 03-01-2015 02:52 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
I guess he'll improve the look of the 2nd line, which could use an upgrade

lockman21 03-01-2015 02:58 PM

Depth. Winning the Cup is all about depth. Reliable veteran that can do it all. Two way player, pretty universally loved by all his teammates and fans, etc.

Getting him without sacrificing anything on the current roster is a nice move if you're trying to win it all.

barbogast 03-01-2015 03:02 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Yeah, that's a fair point. I mean I don't hate the pick up don't get me wrong. He'll definitely improve a shaky second line. Will allow Troy Brouwer to move into a bottom 6 role where he should be.

Lockman, heard anything more about Sharp? I've been hearing it sounds like he's gonna stay in CHI. Also heard DET might be in on him. Know anything I don't?

Watching Leafs/Kings game 7 from 93. The goalies gear is so small. Defensemen are bigger these days.

Wings can't afford him past this season. A lot of RFAs this summer, including Nyquist. Plus for Hawks to move him they have to give him 48 hours to submit a list. They never asked and we're 25 hours from the deadline. Not going anywhere.

I know people are saying he's being shopped, but I think the only way Bowman would move Sharpie would be if something blew him away. I would be surprised if he's being actively shopped, and tend to believe that Bowman is merely listening to what people are offering.

If Sharp isn't here in 48 hours, I would be completely and utterly SHOCKED. I don't see him moving. The Hawks can unload salary in a lot of other ways (Bickell, Shaw) without getting rid of someone that was talented enough to play on Team Canada last year and was an All Star MVP.

barbogast 03-01-2015 03:21 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
Yeah that's pretty much exactly what I figured would happen. Moving him really never made sense to me. Especially with Kane going down.

Yup, very good point.

It's possible Bowman was just testing the waters to see what Sharp would bring back in a trade, but I didn't think he'd be a piece they'd move until MAYBE this offseason...but even then, I think he's staying put.

He was never really a fit for Washington anyway. He likes to do kind of what Ovie likes to do offensively. He's a right handed shot that likes to sit at the left circle and shoot from that side. He has a heavy one timer from the point and the left circle.

He'd be no good on a line with the great 8.

barbogast 03-01-2015 03:32 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
The rumor I kept hearing was Joel Ward and a pick. That's not anywhere close to enough for Sharp, I wouldn't think

TMoore4075 03-01-2015 03:32 PM

Re: The NHL Thread
 
If they trade him, I could see him going at the draft. They could get a nice return on him if they choose to move him.

kind of a classless avs team last night

Yeah... this is what I just saw too. And it's breaking my heart. Hearing Girardi might be part of deal... another guy I'd like on the Avs, although not as much as Yandle.
