    Rentals are normally pending free agents, because the team has no obligation to them after the season.

    Cheechoo was a salary dump by SJ and is now Ottawa's problem.

    However...Kotalik was part of a trade to Calgary and he has TWO more years at 3 million and is every bit the bust that Cheechoo is (more actually IMO). That changed the landscape a lot IMO.

    Maybe Calgary wants him around? Or maybe he is going somewhere else? Or maybe it is just because Kotalik hates NY and wants out and Calgary has to take him?

    You don't even want to hazard a guess on what that price would be. Ahhhhh!

    Maybe Calgary (or insert another team) wants Cheechoo around...

    Maybe the guy that Calgary goes after is Vinny? Remember Higgins was a part of that trade, wasn't he?

    I'm not you and you're not Ottawa.

    You're right, though. It's tough to believe that CGY thinks Stajan is the Center of their dreams.

    SpezzD already mentioned it but I just can't believe there's a trade market for Kotalik.

    When he signed in the summer I orginally misread the report and thought he had signed for 3 years at 1 milllion per -- I thought that was too much.

    For 3 million dollars this guy is wayyy to 1 dimensional.

    Sutter has lost his mind.

    Joke-inen has zero chemistry with Iginla though. They've tried all sorts of wingers with them and nothing is working. It's clearly a chemistry issue between the two of them. If they can move Olli and bring in the required pieces for Kovalchuk, then it doesn't matter who's at centre between those two. You could put Gordie Howe there (and he's 112 years old) he'd produce.

    And that one dimension is playing the point on the PP. That's not saying much for a forward.

    And Stajan does fancy himself a playmaker. Maybe that's it then.

    There may be a team that would take Cheechoo, maybe not. Likely if they do it is because they are getting something really important and again Cheechoo is just a throw in.

    I suspect if there was interest, SJ wouldn't have had such a difficult time moving him.

    Back to Kotalik, I recall being pretty surprised by the signing. I thought it was a bad deal, too expensive, and I remember many people (maybe not here cause I couldn't find posts) disagreeing with me saying it was a great deal. I thought the Rangers should have just kept Zherdev, or at least given Grachev a serious shot. Guess I was right afterall. Must have been those smart fans over at TSN.

    I don't even really care about trade Cheechoo any more, I think he might be of use the rest of this year...but Murray has to at least make some calls now that Kotalik was 'traded'. If we could plug Whitney in Cheechoo's spot...well, that's more than a slight upgrade to say the least.

    Nor do I. I firmly believe that he's an asset on a playoff team.

    Especially if you have a significant injury in the top six. I would advocate putting Cheechoo with Fisher and Kovalev from here on, but Regin is just so damn cool and good that that's gonna be hard.

    He needs 20 games with Fisher and Kovalev for us to see if he can do anything.

    Funny you mention that, cause that's exactly what I did in NHL 10 Laughing3 Cheechoo for Whitney straight up.

    Won't happen. He won't be put in a scoring role but he'll be fine on the forecheck on the 3rd or 4th line.

    You're close. But sources tell me that Kelly, Cheechoo and Kuba will be dealt for The Wizard, Pitkanen and Rod the Bod.

    Stay tuned.

    You seem to say that a lot, and I can never to if you're being facetious or not...

    If I had any idea what fecesitious meant, I would answer that. Let's just say I'm full of Dung, but that deal would make a lot of sense.

    It would if Carolina wanted any part in Cheechoo which I'm sure they don't.
