He Would Also Sign Alex Pietrangelo & Torey Krug & Also Resign Matt Martin,Mat Barzal,Derick Brassard,Ryan Pulock & Andy Greene.

    None of this is going to happen no matter how many times you ask.  Lou is a mediocre GM (Kyle Dubas has had to use assets to bury Lou's horrible contracts).  

    Pietrangelo has had facial hair for well over half a decade.  Why would he succumb to Lou's rules on facial hair?  Plus, he has zero connections to New York.  Plus, why go through the next 2 seasons playing games all over the area?  

    I thought Robin Lehner was going to'd that work out?

    Why would Winnipeg trade Laine for junk?  Would you trade a dollar for six dimes and five pennies?  

    Can't afford Krug either.

    What would be hilarious is if Barzal got offer-sheeted (CBJ is clearing assets like they're planning on it).  I mean, NYI "could" match but then you're pretty much locked in.
