DG's Quick Hits- March 4, 2003 Edition

I know…it’s been awhile; but I’ve been busy with schoolwork so I haven’t had time for articles lately. Rest assured, though, that I’m still alive and well, though excuse me if I get a few details wrong…I’ve been out of the loop for a while.

Anyway, this week’s hits:

No “sure bets” on Deadline Day

Alfredsson defers cheques…and warms hearts

On the radar screen: Sergei and Anna, the Nashville Predators and their season ticket base, Lost Causes, Hull, the NHL and losing, and a lot more

Method to their madness?

Everyone is shocked by the Kings stupid trade giving up yushkevich for a 7th and 4th rounder. I think there might be a little more to it than just a stupid GM.

Wesley would consider Toronto.

The Fourth Period – According to the Toronto Sun, Carolina defenseman Glen Wesley appears to be willing to become a Maple Leaf. “If it arises that Toronto has some interest in me, it is something I am going to look at,” the Hurricanes defenceman said yesterday. “I think for any Canadian kid, to play in Toronto would be a thrill. I think it would be exciting for anyone to put on the Leafs uniform.”

Has Clarkey lost his mind?!?! Still looking to add defensemen?!?!

Tim Panaccio of the Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting Flyers General Manager Bob Clarke “conceded” he was unable to pry defenceman Mathieu Schneider from the LA Kings, instead settling for adding depth by obtaining Dmitri Yushkevich yesterday. Clarke stated if another deal for a defenceman can be made by the deadline, he’ll do it.

A Disgrace

Did anybody watch the Edmonton/St.Louis game tonight? Suprise, suprise, TC is talking about the Oilers! But seriously this was disgusting!
