Beware Of Anonymous Bloggers

from the Philadelphia Flyers,

In Philadelphia it occurs just as often as Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day and the Fourth of July. While the local and national media, along with silly, anonymous bloggers with absolutely zero credibility pontificate what may happen before the NHL’s March 9 trading deadline, the rumors have little effect inside the locker room as the Flyers prepare for the final 20 games of the regular season. “I’ve never, in 15 years, had someone say to me that so-and-so is going to get traded for so-and-so and had it ever actually come true,” said Derian Hatcher.

Everyone Relax

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For everyone waiting for the other shoe to drop at the 2006 National Hockey League trading deadline, relax, it will. It just may take right up until Thursday morning before the action starts to heat up. Apart from the early deadline (14 days sooner than in 2004) and the implications of the salary cap (real, even if others may dispute the notion), one of the difficulties in making those complex, trading-deadline deals is that no one, among the NHL's 30 general managers, is entirely certain of the marketplace anymore.

Rumors Galore- But No Movement Yet

As many of you are probably aware, many trade rumors are floating around. The funniest one is Chelios to Montreal and someone started a rumor yesterday that McCabe may or may not have been traded. Remember, I will only post credible rumors and I am sure they will start picking up in the next 24 hours. On another subject, this is good news for the military serving overseas via the CP.

Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan are getting their wish — Tim Hortons will be serving double-doubles and doughnuts soon enough. After weeks of lobbying by the military, the chain agreed to set up a coffee shop to serve soldiers in Kandahar, said Ron Joyce, who co-founded the famous chain in Hamilton in 1964 with NHL hockey player Tim Horton.

Eastern Conference- What Teams May Be Doing

from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,

Will trades be down because of the timing and the cap? NHL.com takes a look at the Eastern Conference to assess who might be looking to trade, whose selling and who is still kicking tires as the deadline nears. Philadelphia Flyers: Browsing -- The Flyers are never afraid to make the big move, as witnessed by signing Peter Forsberg this summer. What the Flyers really need is a run of good health.
