    I mean, yeah. I would guess that move wouldn't come until Staal is ready to return though. Unless they want to seriously play NHL hockey with Greg McKegg and Clark Bishop making up half of their group of 4 centers. That seems ... unlikely.

    Crap, that is scary. Unless there is some other trade bringing a center in, expect to keep seeing Rask. Hopefully he starts to wake up.

    By the same token, Staal is close to healthy. Say you get him back after the break and decide to let Rask try to find something ... anything ... at the AHL level for a month or so. You wouldn't be any worse off than you are right now. And if some sucker GM decided to take that $4 million a year we're throwing into Rask's stick bag in return for next to nothing ... fine. Honestly, I'd rather do that than continue to act like it's OK that we're paying that guy $4 million this season for a point every five games.

    The NHL and NHLPA met again and jointly concluded there will not be a World Cup in 2020. One of the hangups was playing the World Cup and either party opting out of the CBA in the same month. That doesn’t necessarily mean we’re headed to another lockout, and we’re still 20 months away, but to already rule out playing can’t be a particularly good sign.
