Burke shopping Sykora?

From Sportsnet.ca

Anaheim general manager Brian Burke has circulated yet another fax updating the status of Petr Sykora.
Burke, clearly trying to encourage other managers to window shop in an effort to move Sykora and his $3-million salary, alerted teams that Sykora will be in Anaheim’s lineup on Saturday versus Atlanta.

    I predict that someone will mention him going to the leafs and people will laugh.

  4. Hockey_Fan_99 says:

    now logically where is sykora from? hmmmmmmm czech republic what team signed a bunch of czech players in the summer and haver cap space hmmmmm NYR Therefore he will head to NYR

  5. STARS_FAN9 says:

    I read that the Rangers and the Stars showed the most interest. NYR i can see but not dallas.

  6. JannettyTheRocker says:

    I think Sykora will go to the Leafs!!!!………..HAHAHA!!!!!

    Actually, I think Sykora ends up in Nashville. Just a gut feeling.

    It’s true about the Rangers. But the team with the other half of the Czech national team is the Canadiens, with Bulis, Bonk and Plekanec…

    They need offense like I need a drink, but I think they need it more from a solid scoring D than from another speedy winger, which is their only deep position.

    Sykora for Marcel Hossa and a pick. I like that trade

  9. NemiNA says:

    Hey, they went for Bure a while ago, anything can happen.

  10. wheresthesoda says:

    wont happen, sather isnt gonna trade hossa

  11. GretzNYR99 says:

    I have to agree with Dynamo, that trade should happen. They’ll probably ask for another player like that, maybe Taffe or someone like that, but I don’t give up anyone important for Sykora. Hossa is just a waste of space in this lineup.

  12. MTLROCKS says:

    I totally agree with what you said. Hossa is nothing like his brother marian, and is a waste of space even though he never committs any errors and plays safe he still doesn’t make any progress. They need a sniper like sykora because that would relieve pressure from Jagr since the rangers depend on him too much. Sykora and jagr would be insane together on the same team. The rangers need an extra offensive threat since they will not go anywhere if jagr is their go to guy

  13. MTLROCKS says:

    I see the following as a realistic trade possibility:

    The Rangers exchanging Marcel Hossa, Tom Poti,and some kind of pick to the Anaheim Mighty Ducks for Petr Sykora and D-man Sandis Ozolinsh.

    I believe it would be either Hossa or Ville Nieminen.

    The Rangers’ first lineup would then look like this:

    Straka Nylander Jagr Ozolinsh Roszival

    Sykora Rucchin Rucinsky Kasparaitis Kondratiev

    And their PP would be awesome with the possiblity of:

    Sykora Nylander Jagr Straka Ozolinsh

    WOW what a team that would be.

    Jagr is the best player in the world and is the best player ever to play the game. Nobody can compete to Jagr, not Gretzky, not Lemieux and not even Peter Forsberg. Think about it, five straight scoring championships, a world cup with the Czech national team at the Olympics and dekes nobody in the history of the NHL has pulled off. He single handedly lead a shit Pittsburgh team to the playoffs and made them a potent threat to any team just because of his superb natural talents. What a great player Number 68 is. They should not let any player in the NHL have his jersey number. Just like they did with Wayne Gretzky’s jersey number 99. Forsberg had Sakic in Colorado and thats why he won two championships or alone he can’t do shit. We’ll see how far Philly goes. Let them play the Rangers so it can be a good old rivalry matchup and so Jagr can dominate Forsberg.
