How Will The Trades Shake Out

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For the better part of a week or so, Burke repeated the same essential mantra to anyone who would listen — that the prices his colleagues were demanding for player rentals were laughably high and no matter how much a team was prepared to surrender for help in the present, there was still going to be only one Stanley Cup parade each spring.
Burke spoke a true fact that was clearly lost on the New York Islanders, the San Jose Sharks and the Dallas Stars, all of whom joined the Atlanta Thrashers and the Nashville Predators in surrendering big parts of their respective futures in the hope they can win in the here-and-now.

Breaking Down The Trades

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Stan Fischler breaks down many of today’s trades…

RYAN SMYTH TO THE ISLANDERS
Nobody can laugh at the Isles anymore. So what if Snow gave Edmonton Robert Nilsson, Ryan O’Marra and a first-rounder. Smyth is the kind of dude who could turn Ted Nolan’s club into a Cup contender; provided, of course, that they get into the playoffs. And this without losing Jason Blake. Imagine the Uniondale forward wall once Alexei Yashin returns to the lineup.

Ryan Smyth to the New York Islanders

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Newsday,

The Islanders are putting the finishing touches on a deal for Edmonton captain Ryan Smyth. In exchange, the Oilers will receive former Islanders’ first-round draft picks Ryan O’Marra and Robert Nilsson plus the Islanders’ first-round pick this year.

more to come…
(note: as a KK reader mentions in the comments, Smyth was not the Oilers captain)

Update 3:34pm ET:
TSN confirms the same information on the air, also mentioning another team was involved but lost out.

Update 3:40pm ET:
Bob McKenzie TSN mentions the trade is pending final approval from the NHL. Call to NHL in progress now apparently.

Update 4:00pm ET:
TSN updates online,

Unable to reach a long-term deal with their heart-and-soul player, the Edmonton Oilers instead traded Ryan Smyth to the New York Islanders for prospects Ryan O’Marra and Robert Nilsson and the Islanders’ first-round pick in 2007.

continued….

Update 5:07pm ET:
Greg Logan at Newsday hashes out the Smyth deal for Islander’s fans,

If you thought some of the Islanders’ wins lately were exciting, general manager Garth Snow’s buzzer beater at the trade deadline topped everything. Snow couldn’t find a taker for his own future unrestricted free agent Jason Blake, but he had no problem paying the price Edmonton asked for 31-year-old forward Ryan Smyth.
