The Tampa Tribune reports trade talks between the Lightning and New York Islanders for Roman Hamrlik have reached an impasse.
-Reports are reporting the Anahiem Mighty Ducks close to signing forward Sergei Federov.
- And Leafs with offensive reaguard Oleg Tverdovsky.
It has been mentioned several times here in Michigan by Detroit writer and talkshow host Bob “Wojo” Wojanowski that the Wings best move would be to trade Curtis Joseph for De-funked Centerman Eric Lindros. Wojo on his radio show, suggested that Captain Steve Yzerman, would like his fellow Canadian Lindros. Down the radio dial, The Locker Room Show’s hockey coverage suggests that Curtis Joseph would rather be traded to St. Louis, where he is said to have close friends. Many nutty fans have been heard calling the local radio stations AM 1130 and AM 1270 that the Wings package some of their young farm prospects to Washington for Jagr. It was also spoke of on AM 1130 the FAN that Federov will likely sign with the Mighty Ducks. Here is what I think the Wings will do, just based I my many years of following the Wings: Look for a three way trade to get it done. Lindros to St. Louis, then Joseph to St. Louis for Lindros. I personally would love to see the Wings acquire both Lindros and Jagr, but the cost in all that does not seem logical. Another centerman the Wings could pick up at a lower cost, would be a well know centerman/freeagent from New Jersey. You think on that a while. Either way, with one of those listed above, adding Hatcher, the loss of Federov will be hardly noticed……count on it!!!
Sources have reported rugged hard nosed defensemen Bryan Marchment wanting to play for the Leafs at any cost…(Or lack there of),
The Detroit Red Wings have signed physical stay at home defenseman Derian Hatcher to a 5 year deal contract worth $30M.
