    Read this in an article:

    What's the only difference between the Canadiens and the Titanic?

    one is old, rusty and at the bottom of the Atlantic. The other is a ship.

    Oilers need new amateur scouts. Outside of players in the first round they haven't really hit on any players. You need to hit on a few in the later rounds if you want to succeed. Since 2010 the player drafted by the Oilers(not in the first round) that's played the most games is Tobias Rieder and I don't even know who he is. Player with the second most NHL games played? Marty Marincin. He's with the Marlies right now.

    I think the Senators want a do-over with the Turris trade.

    For almost two years, the Arizona Coyotes tried to trade Anthony Duclair.

    Now, the Chicago Blackhawks hope he's the right fit for them.

    The Blackhawks acquired the talented but inconsistent 22-year-old winger from the Coyotes in a four-player trade Wednesday. Chicago also got them defenceman Adam Clendening and sent winger Richard Panik and minor league forward Laurent Dauphin to Arizona.

    Duclair has nine goals and six assists in 33 games this season, scoring in each of his last two games after reports surfaced that he had asked for a trade.

    "It's gone back for a few years now where the team wasn't particularly happy with the player and the player wasn't particularly happy with the team and we worked through some things, tried a lot of different approaches in a lot of different ways," Coyotes general manager John Chayka said on a conference call. "I hope he has success in Chicago and does good things."

    Acquiring Duclair is another step for Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman to try to shake up a perennial contender fighting to maintain a playoff position. They put defenceman Cody Franson on waivers Monday and sent him to the minors and have shuffled around their roster in recent weeks.

    Chicago is the third NHL organization for Duclair, whom the Coyotes acquired from New York in 2015 in the deal that sent Keith Yandle to the Rangers. Duclair had 20 goals and 24 assists in 81 games in 2015-16, then had only five goals and 10 assists in 58 games last season.

    "There's a lot of things that go into a trade," Chayka said. "Some of them are readily apparent. You see Anthony play and his speed and skill is obvious to everyone. There's some things that I think should stay behind closed doors. It was a long process. We went through a lot of different approaches and a lot of different things through two different (coaching) staffs here and at the end of the day just felt that for both sides it was best to move on."

    Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville announced before his team's game against the Minnesota Wild that Panik was out of the lineup and had been traded for Duclair.

    Panik, 26, has six goals and 10 assists in 37 games after signing a $5.6 million, two-year contract. His goal Tuesday night in an 8-2 victory at Ottawa was his first since Oct. 21, ending a 27-game drought.

    "When you look at goal-scorers, sometimes there's a variation in how they're scoring," Chayka said. "We feel like some of it this year has just been some unluckiness. We still think he's playing a well-rounded game, still think he's doing a lot of good things that he was doing in the past. His shooting percentage from areas he's scored in the past is just slightly down this year. We expect that to bounce back."

    By trading Panik and his $2.8 million hit for Duclair's $1.2 million and pending restricted free agency, the Blackhawks clear valuable salary-cap space this season and next.

    "I guess they weren't happy with my performance," Panik said.

    this could turn out to be a home run for the hawks or just clearing cap space at the worst

    yeh. Everytime someone even touches the keeper it's like a 10 minute disruption. Gotta look at the tele

    Bettman killed the game. It's so if and not. it's so boring, not the NHL I grew up on where it was a fear factor at least.

    just pass it up, pass it back. can't even watch it.
