Over the past several weeks, there have been countless rumors and articles on where Mats Sundin is going if he’s traded by the deadline.
But none of these articles provided information on the ODDS or probability that Sundin will be dealt to any particular team. No numerical information has ever been reported.
Well, the bookies in Las Vegas have addressed that, and the front runner in the Sundin sweepstakes might surprise people.
I’ve thought a lot about what needs to be done with this team, and I’ve finally come up with it, and although many believe the asking price for Mats Sundin is to high to get what we want, I tend to disagree.
Yesterday, the Kings traded Jaroslav Modry to the Flyers for a 3rd-round draft pick. That trade has opened the flood gates and become the first of many moves that the Kings are expected to make between now and the trade deadline.
The 4th period is reporting that Brad Stuart and Ladislav Nagy are the likely candidates, and name NJ, Detroit and the Flyers (again) as likely candidates for the defenseman, and Pittsburgh and Vancouver for the LWer.
The Toronto Sun is providing a ton of speculation regarding trade rumors and players who may be on the move.
Ajc.com is reporting that Marian Hossa may not be the only Thrasher to be on the move.
Gainey commented publicly after a spectacular win over New York Ranger 6-5, that he is looking to acquire an impact player.
When asked he said he had certain specific players in mind.
What’s another day without a fresh new Maple Leaf trade rumor?
TFP is reporting that the New York Islanders are interested in acquiring Leaf defenseman Bryan McCabe.
The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired Jaroslav Modry from LA for a 3rd rounder. Don’t know how much this helps. Flyers are loaded with average defensemen and need a great puck mover. Don’t know how much Modry will solve any problems. Thought they were more in the market for Campbell or Kaberle. Maybe this is a set up move for something else…i sure hope so.
The Toronto Sun is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs are asking way too much for Mats Sundin.
The Globe ad Mail is reporting that Tampa Bay forward Brad Richards may be on the trading block.
RDS reports that the Montreal Canadiens have acquired Olivier Latendresse from the Phoenix Coyotes which is Guillaume’s brother.
First reports are that Lidstrom has suffered a knee sprain when hit by Colorado forward Ian Laperriere into the boards. Anyone that saw this hit saw that Lidstrom looked to have more then a knee sprain as he looked groggy trying to skate back to the bench but word is that he was tested for a cuncussion which he passed showing no signs of a head injury.
According to RDS.ca, Phoenix has traded Oliver Latendresse to the Montreal Canadiens. He will be joining his younger brother Guillaume in the Canadiens organization. No talk yet of who the Yolks get back in return.
