Won’t someone give us a 7th for Barrie? I might even take an 8th. Just anything to be able to say we got something out of him being here.
Would you take Barrie and a 7th for future considerations with future considerations being nothing at all?

Bobo 5 min out of semi retirement has done more actual reporting than the rest of the media combined since he last worked.

Eichel - preping to go back to buffalo and has not requested a trade
New GM in buffalo - not shopping eichel but teams have called and the ranger appear interested in trying to bring him in.

Bobo did say he's heard Eichel did ask for a trade out of Buffalo. I know there's been denials, but hum....They'll get even more calls now.

So this means that talent over everything now right? I kept hearing how grit was the only way to win all year (despite St Louis not really being particularly gritty)....but now that Tampa has won, all we're going to hear about is being more talented than everyone else and playing fast, beautiful hockey is winning hockey, right?

Having learned from their first round disaster vs a grittier team last season, Tampa traded for 2 big chunks of grit. That was the difference!!!!

so, zero need for lamestream media to change the narrative (this yr). Up to you guys to do that next yr.

Or we can just sign Luke Schenn and Bogosian to keep the narrative intact. I wonder if that will work...

Well, clearly Barclay Goodrow created enough space for Point and Kucherov put up a combined 65+ points. How do you not play 10 feet tall when you have Barclay Goodrow out there with you? Of course, by "out there" I mean that entirely metaphorically.

Do not sign or trade picks for ANY grit, otherwise you will hear how the nerd finally learned his lesson.

McLennan thinks schitty calves was key.

What if he does that, but then doesn't re sign them next off season? That counts as not learning his lesson, right?

So he's only learned his lesson if we win the cup?

Until then he's a flop show trying to play a man's game on a spreadsheet?

no, he can change the narrative by winning the Cup with a team with very low grit levels.

but if he trades a 1st round pick for grit, than he would just be another dude who learned not to outsmart the grit rule
