Quick Notes From Brooks

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- Would Sather deal Hagelin, 25 and with one more season on his contract at a $2.25 million cap hit leading into restricted free agency, for, say, Jets captain Andrew Ladd, 28 and with two more years on his deal at $4.4M cap hit leading into unrestricted free agency (and, it must be noted, a modified no-trade clause)?

- It just seems wrong, doesn’t it, but Olli Jokinen might be one of the more sought-after rentals at the deadline.

- The Sabres’ Steve Ott would bring value to a Cup contender, but even if there’s no doubt about that, there is less doubt the acquiring team will inevitably yield too much to get him.

- Your Washington Capitals have won 12 games in regulation this season.

Hagelin for Andrew Ladd? In what universe does Brooks think the Jets make that trade without NYR adding significantly.

He works for the New York Post.

You shouldn’t expect anything but nonsense from that tabloid.
