my fault guys, thought the above was listed as a one for one trade???
I see Ryan O’Byrne will be separating shoulders in the Eastern Conference now.
SB has spoken- 2C is in Rockford. The Cap must be the culprit. If Hawks can get another Brandon Saad for cheap then Toews and Kane will be easier to sign. That’s the future though. Time will tell if a Cup was the cost.
Other than getting Handzuis the other day, Hawks did nothing. and I am fine with that.
Minnesota makes another big and good move. Not quite sure I understand what the CBJ are doing……..or was this proposed by the NYR to add depth?
I guess we will see how far our Hawks go. They have enough to get to the finals but a lot bounces are gonna have to go there way…..including NO injuries.
I really only care how well the Western Conference contenders did and there is only one that definitely has me worried and two that might end up making a difference. The first is Pominville, I think he turns out to be a big pick up for the Wild who have really been coming on the last few weeks. The other two, Lombardi for Anaheim and Regehr for LA might make them a little better but I doubt either will be difference makers.
Gaborik may still be a great player, but how does he mesh with the style Columbus plays? I think Nashville made a nice trade picking up Forsberg for Erat, but that seems more like a good move for the future than help this year. San Jose picking up Torres … oooo kay. Torres can play a bit but I just can’t see him making a big difference.
Bottom line – I don’t think any team improved themselves to be better than the Hawks.
Then there are the trades that weren’t make. I don’t know how many of the rumors had any basis in fact, but rumors about Stalberg, Bolland and Leddy possibly being traded off the roster and rumors of Teravainen and a few other prospects included in trade packages. I’m please none of the roster players got traded as they all play vital roles in the success of this team. As for the prospects, who knows what they will become, but the TDL is the worse time to get the best value from prospects. If they are to be used as trade chips, it’s better to spend those chips at the draft or in the off season.
StL D is first rate. I would beware the Blues come playoffs
