    I don't want Spezza going to Tampa - the Sens already sent a Vezina candidate.

    Would Murray trade him to the East before making sure none of the Western teams can give a decent return? Wouldn't the East have to give up a really good return to get him?


    Who gives a f*** where he's traded? If the Sens and Murray are getting a less than stellar return because he refuses to deal him within division than he's not doing his damn job. Spezza isn't going to light up anyone, anymore.

    Purcell was given away for cap space. You'd think a team that has tons, like Ottawa, could've had that guy in a less complicated deal. I wonder if we'll see such a trade happen for Ottawa?

    Sounds like they don't need that anymore. Gagner to Arizona for draft picks apparently.
    that might kill any interest coyotes have in spezza. great more suitors gone... Facepalm
    one of those players is not like the other.

    Sesame Street made it challenging for 4-year-olds by showing 4 things/persons/items. You've got a list of *two* so picking one that's not like the other is something even a Leafs fan could do 2 out of 3 tries.

    now if we could orchestrate a multi player and multi team trade for spezza....

    I once saw my 4 year-old niece taking eggs out of the fridge, handing them to her 2-year-old brother who gleefully dropped them to the floor. That was not a "three-way-trade" either.

    Definitely a possibility, but $5.6M is not enough. I read somewhere they were at $58 with a 16-man roster. That leaves $11M for 5 players, give or take. Don't think Stastny will move for under $8M, which leaves $3M for 4 players. That's tight. No room for injuries, or do they have a LTIR candidate?

    Wonder if the $2M drop in cap space has altered a few GMs plans... $71M to $69M can make quite a difference...

    Latest news on Twitter has

    1) Volchenkov being bought out
    2) Gleason being bought out
    3) MTL trying to trade Gorges to TOR, but Gorges nixing the deal. MTL trying to shed Gorges regardless, it seems.

    He's a depreciating asset. Started to look really weak during the last playoffs.

    Meh. He's still young and can play an excellent 2nd pairing role IMO.

    He has a NTC and gives Mtl 15 teams he will accept a trade to. As per Bob MacKenzie, all those 15 teams are in the US.

    Remember when we traded VOlchie? He was 2 years younger than Gorges is today.
    You can only block so much shots in one career IMO.

    He's so upset, wow. Says he's in shock.

    Montreal wants Boyle apparently, so I guess they're shipping out gorges to sign Boyle.
