    mmmm...is a big trade or two coming...?

    Post by Cronie on Tue Oct 07, 2008 1:16 pm

    This is just me thinking out loud, but my gut has been going crazy all day... I have this sneaky feeling that in the next few hours, a team or two will make a HUGE trade(s)...

    I have no inside info or sources telling me this, but just a hunch and gut feeling...

    Does anyone else have a feeling that given that teams have until tomorrow @ noon I believe to finalize their rosters and last-ditch trades that something is coming?!

    I do as well. Too much smoke around Boston and Vancouver for there not to be some sort of a fire.

    Tampa's due as well. It's been over 24 hours now. Come on!

    I really wouldn't be surprised if Pittsburgh makes a pitch for a d-man, after watching Crosby cry like a little girl when he didn't get a pass on the powerplay...

    With all the talk about Ottawa needing to replace Gerber. I don't Murray will. With the extended down time until the next game this would have been a good opportunity to make a move so that a new goalie could come in and get some practive time while meeting the players. I agree though that a couple of trades may occur before players are placed on waivers.

    Don't think Chicago wants to pay Khabi $6.5 to play in the minors, and they certainly cannot recall him and risk actually paying him anything. They will try to work something out, I'm sure.

    Pittsburgh desperately needs a defenceman, and a great trade would be Kaberle for Staal, but I don't see Pittsburgh moving Staal, at least not yet.

    I almost forgot about Khabi! LOL

    Apparently, Shanahan may have a new home REAL soon.

    Not Ottawa - can't see us adding a forward. I suppose though if McAmmond is waived or traded.

    I am not sure Deano will be a Sen for the full season.
    I could see him being waived, not traded, unless packaged well.

    Unofficially at this point, Detroit and NJ seem to be the front runners.

    Detroit? Really? They don't need him... does he need them? A return to his former glory days? Taking a spot away from Leino possibly, which is a bad move.

    Why not St Louis? (the city, not the player)
