For example, in response to Gainey's presence at a Leafs/Kings game and the speculation that he may be interested in a Leafs player:

Don't read too much into Gainey's presence at that game as he could be scouting the Kings, whom the Habs will face in about six weeks.

Six weeks! Dregers top 10 likely to be moved before the deadline - Page 3 270956 Dregers top 10 likely to be moved before the deadline - Page 3 62136

I'm telling you Spector is full of hot air.

Agreed. Who thinks the real trade deadline will be closer to the start of the Olympic trade freeze?

The deadline occurs only 2 days after the gold medal game. Dregers top 10 likely to be moved before the deadline - Page 3 235689 Dregers top 10 likely to be moved before the deadline - Page 3 805406

Agreed. The deadline is in FULL swing by Feb.10th IMO - especially where it pertains to a big money player like Kovalchuk. I doubt Waddell will want to wait until the 11th hour like with Hossa.

We'll have to look back on these and see how many people got right. Dregers top 10 likely to be moved before the deadline - Page 3 805406

Bob Mackenzie said last night that Pittsburgh and Ottawa would be two logical landing spots for Ray Whitney ... Not sure if anyone has mentioned that yet

Kovalchuk to Ottawa for Spezza makes literally all the sense in the world. Kovalchuk puts Ottawa in a ridiculous spot heading into the playoffs and Waddell gets a star center signed long term to market the team around.

Couldn't be a better match. Question is: do the Senators do it?

I'd do it because Kovalchuk is an all-world talent ... However I'd be really nervous about losing him to Free Agency in the summer

Only if there is a deal for Peverley to go with it. Just because of the likelihood that Kovalchuk is a rental. Tough deal for us.

Whitney would be a terrific addition to any team. He has incredible skill. But I'd be afraid to know what they would expect in return. I would not be willing to trade Foligno, Regin, most of our prospects, or a draft pick from the first two rounds. The thing is, unless he is coming signed, I don't think adding Whitney will be enough of a push to win the Stanley Cup this year.

I would be willing to trade (in terms of people with some value and no clauses): Shannon, Picard, Jim O'Brien, and maybe Kelly. For Kelly it would have to include some longterm potential, like a draft pick or prospect. And I only say Kelly because of how well Z Smith played when he was called up. He would do well between Neil and Ruutu.

The last thing i would want, however, is to be in a bidding war with other teams for Whitney.

I based my picks on history that teams have with each other. Ottawa and Carolina, and Ottawa's history of trading for pending free agents.

LA has the best chance IMO of getting Kovlachuk AND re-signing him to a $7.5M deal. No way can Kovalchuk expect to get much more than that AND play for a contender.

Souray said he is staying in the West and he has all the say, same with Lubo (NTC) and Boston needs an OFD.

It will be fun to see if anybody gets any right and how many.

Which is why I would say Kelly is expendible. Not a bad player, not super expensive, but expensive enough and replaceable. I think the return of The Wizard for the playoff run and the cap relief for the summer is good enough.

Here's hoping Campoli continues to develop and we can get one more cheap contract out of him as well. Dregers top 10 likely to be moved before the deadline - Page 3 54934

He's RFA and making 667, I think. And he's really only coming around now. That should make for a cheap contract this summer.

Sorry for my bad grammar there. What I meant to say was: I hope you're right and Campoli continues to develop because we'll be able to get one more cheap contract out of him and you need those underpaid over performers on your team in order to be successful right?

No. I understood you. I was just asking what kind of deal we might get away with, in your opinion.

It's getting tougher to imagine moving any of our players now but you have to really look at each players entire season and not just the few feel-good games they may have had recently.

All I keep hearing is how Calgary needs a Center and I just can't convince myself that offering them Spezza + for Phaneuf + would be a bad idea.

Bob McKenzie thinks Ribeiro might be a fit there, so perhaps a Phaneuf for Ribeiro and Niskanen swap would work better?

Calgary has always needed a skilled center and thought Joiken was the answer. I think a deal of Phaneuf, Backlund, and Moss or Glencross for Spezza and Campoli
