Tampa is just a step ahead of everyone. 

A team in the hunt for next season should have pre-emptively made that trade to deny Tampa the help.

Yeah, I don't understand what Nashville is doing helping Tampa out here, or why anyone else would, for that matter.  Does Nashville have cap floor problems?

How are they helping them out? McDonagh is a very good defensive D man and Tampa will miss him big time. Good fit for Nashville and their style and he has lots of miles left on him imo. Myers is crap. Nashville is now a better team. Tampa is worse. 

KA has the ability to help some teams out this way. Pity he doesn't or we could get better too.

McDonagh is still a solid player, however Nashville now has 4 32+ year old Dmen under contract for at least 3 more years.

He's old and expensive and has lots of term left.

Did not know where to post this 

 

 

This has to be the first time ever one brother has been the GM of an NFL team and the other an NHL team.  Do they have any other siblings that want to take a shot at running an MLB and NBA team?

Sounds like McDonough was not happy with the deal. According to Nick Kypreos, he was told that if he didn’t accept the trade to Nashville he would be waived and Columbus had committed to claim him.

"While it is certainly an understandable decision from a purely business perspective on the part of the Lightning, that is a pretty brutal way to treat a guy who has given his blood, sweat and tears for your organization and helped you win 2 Stanley Cups along the way no less." 

 

Whatever. Organizations have to look forward not backwards. He played hard because he wanted to win, not because he loved the organization 

 

 

He's also a dirty player, imo

That’s another possibility off the board 

Also would seem to cross PIttsburgh off as a potential destination.

There was a lot of talk of a Fleury return.

Then again, if he's THAT OK w/ being the backup do we really want to see him sharing duties w/ Anderson?  Let the 'Guins keep him & point out to MAF that it's only a 3 hour limo ride to Pittsburgh from here when he wants to visit.  😉

I’m very Ok with Him not entering the conversation for the Sabres. His History at UNH is enough for Me to pass on Him
