[Thursday LL] Deadline Fallout

I love so many things about this picture. - Bruce Bennett

What. a. trade. deadline. St. Louis to the Rangers, Gaborik to Columbus, Vanek to Montreal, Moulson to Minnesota, Halak to Washington (on a night Holtby was chased from the net), and "goalies everywhere." I was talking on twitter about some icons that got traded. Legwand, the franchise's first entry draft pick, has more games played in a Predators jersey than any other player - now he's a member of the Red Wings, a division rival up until last year. In under a calendar year, the Lightning have lost both of their franchise GP leaders - to a contract snafu and a trade demand.

LL Discussion Thought: St. Louis is being portrayed as a baby for wanting out of Tampa. When does a player earn a trade demand? A certain GP? Just by not being an "enigmatic" European? Never?

Martin St. Louis leaves Lightning farewell letter: ‘All I can really say is that I am sorry’
It's a shame he declined to discuss why he left - it'd be interesting to hear his thought process beyond "snub = leave" but always nice to see someone think of the fans eventually.
