Dear Hockey Gods,

It would be really great if by some miracle you could make some trades happen for the Red Wings.

I don’t think Kenny can do this on his own.  Please send Datsyuk to a basement team, Howard to the Flames and Stamkos to Detroit.

I hope this isn’t asking for too much,

Thank you and Amen.

Thought it would be a nice thing to do for the kid on his birthday?

Seems like the nicer thing would be to not make him play for Columbus…

Alright. Got another pick.  And Vitale?  Don’t know anything about the guy.  Who knows this kid?

Clearly this cant be true, it didnt cost us all of our draft picks and Mantha and AA

I’m sure that was the original asking price.


But hey, I was hoping Kenny would not disappoint me today and he came through.  Good move there. Way to work the new kid over.

Holland did good… we have 2 2nd rounders now… better than the 3rd we are missing.  I really think this means Detroit wants German Rubtsov and think they can get him at 20..

Just the Islanders to get by and you might be correct.

And there was the real cost of trading Pavs contract, missing out on the chance at drafting elite talent dmen

And he takes….um…who?

Here’s hoping he’s a hell of a player.

Vitale has been in the NHL since ‘10 and appears to hit a lot. Seems to spend some time in the press box (hurt or otherwise, I haven’t dug that far).

KH didn’t seem to think Cholowski will make the big club for at least 2 years.

Kenny always thinks that until he brings them up due to injury and they outplay the haggered vets he has on the team.

sorry - sorry - was just a reflex - Kenny did good today

lol
