Week 2 Of The Fake Trade

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

THE FAKE TRADE WATCH: Last week’s froth - imagining the a fake NHL trade website - actually turned out remarkably prescient, given how hard it is to nail deals down exactly right….

So this week, we’ll venture that if Columbus is really going to divest themselves of any and all available assets, let’s place Sami Pahlsson with the Detroit Red Wings (because they could use a defensive centre; because Mike Babcock used to coach him in Anaheim; and because he is a useful, skilled, former Stanley Cup champion who is only 34, and not done yet).

Let’s put Edmonton’s Ales Hemsky with one of Boston, New York or Los Angeles, a player with enough skill and speed to jump-start a slumbering attack.

And just for fun, let’s put both Brown and Nash in Toronto uniforms, which would represent the sort of seismic kerboom! that general manager Brian Burke loves so much. Sure, he’d have to strip his organization bare of young prospects to do it, but given how the Leafs have struggled; and how popular Nash would be (effectively, coming home), it would dwarf any and all other moves at the deadline. And this is supposed to be out entertainment, right?
