After marrying a girl from Montreal and saying that he wanted to play in the eastern conference and wanted a shot at the cup could Forsberg suit up for the Canadiens?
Alfredson would like Sundin in Ottawa
It’s Groundhog Day, again, and the trade deadline is 25 days away.
And since the Maple Leafs hired Cliff “let’s make a deal” Fletcher as their new interim GM, you can bet your grand-daddy’s gold watch that significant roster moves are going to be made.
As such, we can expect an assortment of trade rumors up until February 26th. Here are the latest ones.
According to tsn.ca, the Oilers and Jackets have swapped players with Dick Tarnstrom going to Columbus for Curtis Glencross.
Sportsnet.ca is reporting that the Nashville Predators are on the verge of re-signing J.P. Dumont to a long term deal reportedly for 4 years. Details click on the link.
According to Slam Sports the Ottawa Senators have made contract with Peter Forsberg’s agent in an effort to initiate discussions in an attempt to lure Forsberg to the nation’s capital.
The Hockey News is reporting that Edmonton Oilers defenseman Steve Staois is attracting a lot of attention as of late.
The Calgary Herald is reporting that as many as 15 teams have lined up to try to get their hands on San Jose’s Patrick Marleau.
The Boston Herald is reporting what we all ready know. Many teams are in desperate search of goal scoring but there are really no teams that are willing to deal.
I am a huge Habs fan and right now the team is sitting in fourth place in the East 5 pts back of Ottawa for first overall.
The Canucks now officially have the worst record in the last 10 games, going 2-7-1, which has pushed them out of the playoffs for the first time since October. Only St. Louis and Florida, having gone 3-5-2 and Atlanta 3-4-3 are close to as bad. This is not a good time to be going on a losing streak for the Canucks.
What can they do, if anything, to get back on form? Trade for Sundin now? Give up their future for a chance to make the playoffs? Or scuttle the season?
TSN is reporting that Maple Leafs center Mats Sundin has been talking to Cliff Fletcher about his future with the Leafs. What should Mats do?
The hot rumor that Peter Forsberg might be returning to the NHL appears to have been stoked with gasoline.
I want to start by saying how happy I am that the NHL finally remedied their atrocious schedule for next year. Having said that, I did an interesting study of the Penguins and how well they would be doing if they didn’t have to play in their own division. I used Montreal, a team that’s been neck-in-neck with the Penguins all season, as a foil.
There are some interesting numbers in there, I suggest you check it out!
