NHL Trade Deadline Nearing!

Well we have about two weeks to the NHL Trade Deadline and what had been a pretty static season thus far received a jumpstart yesterday with the 'Canes trading Mike Commodore and Cory Stillman to the Senators for Joe Corvo and Patrick Eaves. Personally, I'm not too enthralled with the trade, as I think Commodore is a better defensive d-man than Corvo is an offensive defenseman. I'm hoping against hope that Commie and Stiller return to wearing the sightless eye in the off-season when they turn UFA.

So, discuss trades, rumors, and what your team needs to either make the playoffs or clinch Lord Stanley's mug here.

A friend of mine who's a Washington fan reports that the Caps may be looking to trade Kolzig for a younger goalie - he had heard a trade with the Sens for either Gerber or Emery or with the Rangers for Montoya.

With all due respect to your friend I think his rumor is ridiculous. The Caps are currently sitting 3rd in the conference. Why the hell would they trade the guy who has been the starting goaltender for the last 10 years in the middle of a playoff run:?

In regards to my Isles, I see guys such as Satan, Hunter and Fedotenko being shipped out. I am hoping that we wil hold onto Comrie and see if we can lock him up for 2 more years.

Kolzig's not quite the stud he has been and his age is starting to show. Bruce Boudreau has already indicated that he's going to platoon Brent Johnson and Kolzig for the rest of the season and when Kolzig does decide to hang them up, the Caps are going to be left with little in the way of a replacement. Beyond that, Kolzig's contract is up at the end of the season and, as far as one can tell, the Caps haven't really been discussing an extension with him yet. Johnson's a solid back-up and that's about it. In their prospect pool they've got Michael Neuvirth playing in the OHL and Semen Varlamov in Russia, but neither really project to be elite goaltenders nor will be available in the near future. If Washington is serious about the playoff run and want a good shot, it might make sense to deal Kolzig for a goalie who can carry them not just through the playoffs, but through the next few years.

Mike Commodore

I'm glad the 'Canes shipped Ogie Oglethorpe out of the Southeast....  duck 

Of course the BIGGEST rumors swirl around one Marian Hossa. Considering how tight the Southeast Division is (As of right now, first and last in the division are separated by 7 points.), if he does get traded, it will definitely be for players that can step in and help the Thrashers down the stretch. Now the question is whether Don Waddell will ship out some of our best prospects in some deals like last season? Brett Sterling, Bryan Little, or Boris Valabik maybe, Ondrej Pavelec, no. With Kari Lehtonen set to become a free agent at the end of the season, Pavelec is our backup plan behind the pipes. He looked pretty decent during his spell with the Thrashers earlier in the season, going 3-3-0 in 7 appearances with a 3.11 GAA and a .905 Save % (Not bad considering that last season he was playing juniors for Cape Breton of the QJMHL) and is currently playing for the Wolves, where his is 18-8-0 in 26 games with a 3.02 GAA and a .902 Save %.

There's rumors that for the last two Thrashers games, someone from the Stars was supposed to be there but never showed, leading to rumors of a deal with Dallas. Considering how both teams' fan felt about that last trade right before the 2006 Draft (Patrik "I can't even score into an empty net" Stefan and Jaroslav Slodry Modry for Niko Kapanen and the Stars' 7th round pick), I sure hope nothing happens.

Any offers for Bobby Holik would be much appreciated. Worst Captain we've ever had.

If we do trade Hossa, I'm going to believe the rumors and he gets traded to Montreal.

I agree with you for the most part. I was never a huge fan of Kolzig and I always thought he was the Achilles heal of that team. But this season he has just not been that bad. I don't see them renewing his contract unless he takes a huge cut and is willing to play backup. Ottawa will most likely send Emery away before the deadline but I am not sure what they will ask in return and what Washington would offer.

Montoya is a minor leaguer until proven otherwise. I doubt the caps would want a inexperienced goalie for a playoff run.

I wouldn't mind if the Isles shipped Comrie elsewhere. He probably won't sign with the team in offseason and instead will go out west to be closer to Hilary Duff (his girlfriend). He might be able to land a late first round pick. As for Satan, he could get something, but not what the Isles could get if he was healthy (he has nagging leg injuries). Also, he has a no-trade clause, so he'd have to approve any trade the Isles make. Hunter could be pretty valuable for a team looking for a physical presence and a very responsible player on their third line. And Fedotenko.... who cares, I'd take a bag of pucks for him right now. It's time for the Isles to replenish their prospect base.

It's true. But if anyone can do it I think it's the Fletch!

It'll be a sad day Mats Sundin leaves Toronto for the airport to join another team, he has shown the ultimate in class and sportsmanship since Fletcher brought him here all those years ago. I do hope that wherever Sundin winds up (assuming he will waive his NTC) that he has success and wins the Stanley Cup.

As for the rest of the Leafs, I would like to keep Kaberle, however, I understand that might not be possible so if he has to go in order to unload some dead-weight like Kubina or Raycroft then so be it. Another person that needs to go, or be demoted to the Marlies, is Kyle Wellwood, never in my life have I seen a more lazy and unmotivated player, he has all the skill in the world and just doesn't care.

I'm not. Like I said, I think Commie is better at his craft than Corvo. But Rutherford has been coveting a puck-moving defenseman since Frank Kaberle's shoulder surgery ruined him, so voila. IMO, the Hurricanes defense needs a serious make-over. At present the pairings are something like this:

Corvo-Wesley
Hedican-Gleason
Wallin-Kabelere

Seidenberg
Tanabe (IR)

Kabelere's useless, Tanabe was useless even before the concussion and hasn't been on the ice since sustaining it. Wesley and Hedican both, IMO, need to take a long look at whether or not the time is right to hang 'em up. That leaves Corvo, Gleason, and Wallin. You can see why I'd rather Commodore, that great cross between Ogie, Ronald McDonald, and Sideshow Bob, come back to Raleigh.

I watched the Sharks vs Flames at the HP Pavillion tonight Tanguay looked pedestrian at best and Huselius looked so disinterested I'm amazed he didn't get flogged by Keenan.

I would LOVE it if the Sens could land Kostitsyn but I don't see it happening. The Habs will be reluctant to do any deals within the division and if I were them I would not be very pleased at some of the "players" the Sens have exiled to Montreal over the years most notably Radek Bonk, the most ineffective player in Sens history.

Dead serious. I almost threw up when he came out and admitted that he's one of the weakest players in the NHL and when his dad said that he didn't do much physical training over the summer. There's an invitation for your opponents to cream you. If you could combine Wellwood's talent with Tucker's heart you'd have one hell of a player in my mind!

Now I'll fully admit to having heard these stories second hand, keep that in mind, but around Windsor (where I am finishing up University and where Wellwood is from), there are stories of him being escorted out of bars by friends and police all over the place because he was way too intoxicated. Like I said above, I don't doubt his talent, I doubt his work ethic and his heart.

A player that I really admire is Colaiacovo who has more heart than he knows what to do with, and unfortunately lay's it out on the line all to often and ends up hurt.

Put them both on waivers and when nobody picks them up, dump to the Marlies and free up some cap space. Kubina has been playing better this year but not a $5 million + player for sure.

We have the same issue with Benoit Pouliot here in Minnesota. He's got tremendous talent, but his work ethic leaves a lot to be desired, and he has a serious issue with getting pouty. He had a great training camp, but was sent down to Houston because he needs to continue to get his head screwed on straight, and he has not done that well for the Aeros. He's pretty much been a whiny baby (especially since James Sheppard made the final squad), and that was not helped any when Aaron Voros was called up, and has remained with the Wild because he has shown tremendous effort and heart up here. Rather than letting that be a lesson to him, Pouliot has continued to sulk and play when he feels like it.

The Stars are among many teams who have looked at Hossa, but, after last year's trading deadline debacles (betting two first rounders on Norstrom and Nagy, who is no longer there), and subsequent firing of the GM who made the deals, the cupboard is nearly bare. Co-GMs Les Jackson and Brett Hull will definitely not be trading any of our prospects or younger players, most of them actually having improved since being given regular amounts of playing time.
That said, Hull is very close with Modano, and there have been constant rumors of the desire to acquire a scoring winger to play with Mike. CNNSI's Allan Muir mentioned Vaclav Prospal as a possibility, and Montreal's Michael Ryder has also been thrown around a bit.
I could easily see the Stars trading one of their veteran defenseman (Robidas, Boucher, Norstrom), forwards (Halpern or Barnes, Winchester), or younger players whose development has stalled (Daley or Eriksson) .
I'd deem seven players on the Stars to be absolute untouchables: Lehtinen, Niskanen, Zubov, Modano, and the line of Ribeiro-Morrow-Miettinen

Those guys sound a bit like Alex Bourret, who the Thrashers traded at the deadline last season to the Rags. He was our first round pick in '05 and both training camps he participated with the Thrashers he came in out of shape and overweight. Last season, he was benched by John Anderson in Chicago because of his attitude, which is part of the reason for trading him for Dupuis and a pick. Turns out it just wasn't with the Thrashers he was this way. He did the same exact thing his first camp with the Rags.
