All The Whining That’s Fit To Print

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

So, as AlanaH already pointed out, the New York Times’ hockey blog Slap Shots is featuring comments from 30 bloggers representing (you guessed it Bubba) each team in the league. 

Here’s the link to the bloggers representing the Division That Gary Built.

And hey, here’s a shocker.  The Blues guys don’t like the Wings.  Grab your tissues.

Sportsnet Reports

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Sportsnet on their TV show stated a Richards trade has not gone down and talk is Richards has not even been asked to waive his NTC.

They also stated Kyle Wellwood has not asked to be traded.  I am not sure where that came from, but I haven’t heard any Wellwood talk.

Also Pierre McGuire states McKee is not going to Pittsburgh, he talked to Davidson and he said pure fabrication.

Columbus Waiting On Richards

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

If Richards joins the Blue Jackets, an NHL source said, Howson is more likely to do what it takes to sign Foote and make a full-on push for the playoffs, perhaps acquiring other players, as well.

If Richards does not choose Columbus, or is not traded, and if Foote won’t budge from his $4 million per season stance, it makes it more likely that Howson will trade Foote and possibly others.

Thrashers Price High For Hossa

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The whisper is Montreal GM Bob Gainey may have had a face-to-face meeting with Thrashers GM Don Waddell yesterday to see if they could close a deal.

While Ottawa GM Bryan Murray has also been hot on Waddell’s trail as well, it’s believed the Senators want rugged blueliner Garnet Exelby as part of any deal

That’s because the Thrashers are asking a lot.

Not only does Atlanta want winger Antoine Vermette or defenceman Andrej Meszaros as part of the deal, they want a prospect and the Senators’ No. 1 pick in the 2008 draft.

more Hossa talk…

Lou Shopping

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

fom the NY Post,

Lamoriello is believed shopping for a Top Two defenseman and a top center, or at least at Top Six forward. The rumors about Barret Jackman, Jay McKee, Rob Blake, Brian Campbell, Pitkanen and John Liles have been long in place, and up front, Robert Lang, Martin Havlat, Brad Richards, Ladislav Nagy and Olli Jokinen as well.

A couple of new names joined the list yesterday, notably Chicago center Jason Williams, injured most of this season but nearly a point-per-game man and an upcoming unrestricted. Atlanta’s Alexei Zhitnik was mentioned speculatively as a possible rental target.

more and some Ranger talk too…

Deadline Day On Speed: Your Wing Bloggers

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Sometimes, when I’m alone and it’s raining, I think I’m actually Pete at Yzerman Is God.  The way he writes is the way I speak, and I dig that.

Speaking of extensions, there is no fu*&ng way we get Hossa and extend him. It’s just not going to happen. Unless we trade Zetterberg, or Lidstrom, or Datsyuk, or Rafalski. You just can’t have five guys making 6M+. Take your pick. I’ll go with the four we got. Same argument goes for why we can’t trade for Jokinen.

A Reported “Will Sign With”

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Alanah posted this at Canucks and Beyond late last night and probably is not the last time we hear a “Will Sign With” today. 

As always, you be the judge…

from RossMcKeon at Yahoo,

The Dallas Stars will acquire Tampa Bay Lightning center Brad Richards in a multi-player trade and Atlanta Thrashers right wing Marian Hossa is heading to the Montreal Canadiens before the NHL trade deadline, an executive within the league said Monday night.


added 7:22am, from the Star-Telegram,

The Stars continued discussions Monday about acquiring forward Brad Richards from the Tampa Bay Lightning, and NHL sources said Stars backup goaltender Mike Smith was one of the players Dallas was dangling.

“We’ve talked today, but nothing’s happening,” Stars co-general manager Les Jackson said on the eve of today’s 2 p.m. (CT) trade deadline.
