Recent Observations

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- Now the Maple Leafs are trying to convince folks that they are equipped to win the Cup with a Petr Mrazek-Jack Campbell tandem in nets?

Or are they trying to convince themselves?

- Free-agent day malpractice by Joe Sakic and his group in Colorado, which couldn’t or wouldn’t come up with the $5.91 million per that incumbent goaltender Philipp Grubauer received on six-year free agent agreement with Seattle, and consequently were forced to sacrifice highly regarded prospect Conor Timmins, a first-rounder and a conditional third to acquire Darcy Kuemper from Arizona to fill the vacancy in nets.

- What, $22.5 million over five years wouldn’t have been enough to entice middle-sixer Brandon Saad to sign with St. Louis, so the Blues had to toss in a full no-trade clause to get the 28-year-old winger to sign on the dotted line?
