CanucksArmy Trade Deadline Recap: Canucks Acquire Leipsic, Jokinen, Motte – Canucksarmy
According to pGPS, Leipsic’s most likely career assignment is that of a third-line winger. For whatever it’s worth, I think pGPS may undersell his upside. pGPS can’t account for how snakebitten Leipsic has been this season, and with the right deployment, there’s a non-zero chance this move turns out a bit like the Sven Baertschi acquisition. At best, they could maybe turn Leipsic into a decent second-line winger. At worst, he’s a depth forward or injury call-up option. Considering what they gave up, that’s pretty darn good.

Stastny trade proves Jets are Cup contenders
The Winnipeg Jets' approach under general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has been a patient one, which has not always gone over well. Since becoming GM on June 8, 2011, Cheveldayoff has taken a conservative approach. It's not always exciting, but it's a plan that has the Jets appearing to be a legitimate Stanley Cup contender.


These guys raised money for a billboard and then @’d some names on Twitter to show off.

How many useful things can you think of that they could have done with that money?

Have a great day, everyone, and don’t forget it’s game day all over again, as the Leafs play Florida tonight. Hope no one goes fishing.
