    RUNOUR (PER TSN): Jokinen + Prust (CGY) for Kotalik + Higgins (NYR)

    This just in, kiddies...

    EK is also reporting it now, too:

    I think Sutter has lost his mind a bit... holy desperation, Batman! Why would anyone trade for Kotalik's contract?

    EDIT: Eep, I see asq2 got it already... my bad. Merge, mods! Smile

    I don't mind trading Jokinen.... I just don't get taking Kotalik back in return.

    CGY is panicking, big time. These are decisions that will hurt the franchise for years to come. When CGY goes out in round 1 or 2 this year, it will be Sutter's head.

    I think it's a lateral trade at best. Kotalik gives them a PP specialist and Higgins has been good before but is playing in that mess in NY.

    The Rangers pick up a center for Gaborik, although not much of one anymore judging his recent play. And Prust seems to be a throw in.

    Jokinen seems to step it up every time he's dealt for some reason. He's an ideal rental, IMO.

    Looks like Calgary has decided to emulate the Ottawa style ( ) of the mini rebuild by casting out the distractions and taking in an offence balanced across their lines.

    McGrattan? Sarcasm

    Nah, he's cleaned it up, very respectable.

    The Rangers need to somehow move Drury and Redden and they would be in very good shape.

    How is that different from any other year?

    What I just don't get is why Kotalik would block the trade? Who the hell would want to stay in NYR (the org, not the city)?

    Weird Dung...

    Jokinen can't be a center for Gaborik though, he shoots all the time, never passes. At least that's the word from Calgary fans and the Phoenix fan. We'll see though, very, very weird Dung.

    If Kotalik blocked this trade... Laugh1

    With no word of a lie, he's Hartford's property.

    Is Sutter making a run at Kovalchuk ?

    The deal is off for now. Jokinen will play tonight vs. Philly, possibly Prust as well, but it could be Grat's. Not sure if it is Calgary backing out, or Kotalik refusing to waive. Bob McK commented over on TSN via twitter.

    Until this happened I think he was. Waddell apparently like Higgins as one of the pieces. Whatever, just replace Kotalik with someone else and waive Kotalik.

    Unbelievable. Truly unreal, what happened there? The players were informed, everything looked like it was happening and they're playing tonight? Wow.

    Does anyone think that because Kotalik was 'traded' (before it all went to Dung) - that there might actually be a market for Cheechoo?
