HTR notes that the value of Olli Jokinen has just gone up due to the fact that Connoly is off the market.

     Wow, Connolly's talent is worth $5million/yr but with his injury history that seems like a lot of money.

    That's what I was thinking. He's very very fragile. HANDLE WITH CARE BUFFALO.

    Anyone think it's possible that Jay Bouwmeester goes to Buffalo?  With the signing of Tim Connoly, a simple look at their numbers will tell you that they are running out of room to resign all their talented forwards (25 million on 5 forwards).  They need to resign Stafford, Kaleta, MacArthur and possibly Kotalik.  They also need a big name defensemen, as they don't have a lot of firepower their moving forward.

    to FLA:
    Drew Stafford, Jaroslav Spacek and a 1st round pick
    To BUF:
    Jay Bouwmeester, Nick Boynton

    The Sabres get their big name defensemen, and would have a good chance at resigning him.  It's a hockey market, without the pressure of a canadian hockey market.  Stafford can help with a playoff push right now for Florida, and Spacek can competently replace Bouwmeester for the time being….

    Turing out to be a pretty boring deadline day.  Better pick up pretty quick.

    It's been almost 2 hours since the last trade. This is a ridiculously slow day. Hopefully things pick up in the PM but I'm thinking it's going to be a slow slow day overall.
