I've read this reference a few times now could someone share some light on this? Is Clarkson drinking a lot of water?


Not sure if you're joking, but here: 


The shift after, Bertuzzi asks if he's the water bottle police.

 How bout trading Jimmy and have a Gus/Mrazek tandem? jk.


If he fetches us a good defender I wouldn't be upset about this.

I saw what Getzlaf called a dive. He took a shot when Ovie had his back to him because he didn't like getting checked into the boards. Ovie just got up right away and didn't look to a ref to sell anything.

Take out Mantha, make the pick a conditional 2nd if Franson resigns, and Toronto needs to retain 2-3m on Kessel for it to work.


I wish, but I don't think Toronto would realistically take that.


Pretty fair deal, provided Franson re-signed, but I don't think it would work for us cap-wise.


Right. I wish Capgeek was still available for scenarios like this, but my guess is it wouldn't leave us much room to retain key players.

This article quotes a hockey analytics researcher who has a hypothetical situation:


TOR gets: Pulkinnen, Kindl, Lashoff, Oulett, Mantha, and a 1st.


DET gets: Franson and Kessel


Would you guys do it? Seem like a fair trade? I'd be nervous giving up all that talent, but that roster looks awesome. Seeing Kessel on Datsyuk's wing would be crazy.
