    Upset? Never say never. I doubt it but this is why they play the games.

    Personally, I would love nothing more than seeing Torts and Kesler out on their asses.

    Hate to change the subject here…but is there any way to grab Nichushkin in Dallas for Yakupov?

    Nichushkin apparently mulling over signing in KHL if Dallas doesn’t sign him, and apparently Nichushkin and Ruff don’t see eye to eye.

    Would a trade of 2 Russians not thrilled with their current situation be do-able? A fresh start is needed for both of these guys.

    And don’t get me wrong, I am a supporter of Yak and always root for him to take the next step every year, and I hope that if he stays, it finally works out for him here, but if not, then a fresh start would likely be welcome for both of these players.

        So much for that idea – lol. Nichushkin signs a deal 1 hour after I post that comment.

        Dallas loses a player for nothing, probably going to happen with Yak in a year if things don’t go well for him this season.

        Although I guess Dallas will still hold his rights as long as they use a spot for him on their 50 man roster.

      I would be all over this deal. Two high Russian draft picks, both at odds with teams that drafted them. Both fill a need with the other club and both might fly with a new beginning.

    Gregor is fired up and I love it. Before the tournament started I was very worried this whole thing was going to feel like an All Star Game but there has been some passionate hockey going on. Awesome.
