I guess they might have known he had no intentions to sign with them. Seems like a pointless trade all around.

frees up some cap space, if madsen wasn't going to sign it's better to draft a goalie who is two or three years earlier in the developmental pipeline. neither is too big, mind you, but not in my view pointless.

Are they just not too interested in bringing Weal back? I guess that's the case. The depth is evident up front after all, particularly adding Nico or Patrick. Hexy must like Laughton as a 4th line C.

He's a rfa. Maybe just asking too high for their liking.

Also loose rumors of a handshake deal w/ Weal.. we won't protect you and if you go unpicked we will lock you up. I don't know. I'm just glad there are no negative surprises (not that MacDonald will be picked)
Quick Google shows that GoGo is wrong with regards to the Kiwi and the Banana.

laughton is very surprising to me, kinda figured he was done here with the forward sitch. really hope to lose a player under contract.

They basically told him to go spend a year in the AHL and get better on defense. From all accounts he did. He just turned 23 and I think he could start the year as the 4C. He might end up still being a bust but I could care less losing any of the unprotected forwards.

I'd give Vegas 2 of our 3rds to take AMac. Or maybe a 2nd and a 3rd for them taking AMac plus Petr Mrázek. I can't believe the Wings protected Howard over him after one bad year.

Vegas is stock piling picks to not take or to make sure they take a specific player in the expansion draft. Wonder what it would take to get rid of Amac.

I was hoping dumping Cousins was for Foo, but apparently not.

Not a huge surprise with how crowded roster is, but #Flyers no longer on Spencer Foo's list, I'm told.

Darren Dreger saying Nico likely to Devils so Nolan Patrick would go to Flyers. Fits what Hextall wants better based on his talk with John Boruk.
