Devils may finally deal Danton; and Tverdovsky?

According to TFP the NY Post said that New Jersey Devils GM Lou Lamoriello should end his two-month punishment of Mike Danton and give his banishment a destination by the end of All-Star weekend. Danton, however, doubts it. “I’m not holding my breath when it comes to Lou ever trading me,” Danton said yesterday through agent Dave Frost. “He has absolutely no intention of letting me play in the NHL again. He has no problem going against his word… “I will not be traded.” There have been continued talks with San Jose and Florida, while Atlanta and Calgary are in the mix.

As for Oleg Tverdosvky, sources suggest Lamoriello may have been using him as trade bait before the defenseman received an independent second opinion of a likely November concussion. Two possible destinations for Tverdovsky may have been Colorado and Detroit. It will be tough to trade Tverdovsky now until he plays regularly again, says the Post.

    Interesting that Atlanta could try and get Danton, but maybe management knows something I don’t. Hartley is not one to put up with attitude, which Danton apparently has a lot of. He plays hard, sure. But I’m at a loss as to why they would try to get him and who they would give up to do so. Probably why I would never be considered for their GM position.

    ok mike jefferson changed his name to mike danton maybe now he should change his name to mike whiner.i mean honest to god has there ever been a player in the nhl who has done so little but bitched so much?as a veteran ,like chris chelios or tie domi,sometimes you want to choke them when the play against your favorite team but at least to some degree they’ve earned the right to be an ass .danton hasnt done anything and unless lou sells him to europe or something i could care less if we ever see or hear from that crybaby ever again

    Who exactly is Mike Danton and why all the fuss about him?

  4. hackett30 says:

    mike danton is a player who ,while in junior,changed his last name from jefferson to danton,danton because that was the first name of a player he met at a hockey camp and i guess he liked the name,because he wanted nothing to do with his natural family i dont know what happened between him and his family so i wont judge him on that but this is at least the 2nd time he has been suspended by the devils and he just seems like nothing will ever make him happy at least not in jersey if at all

    Danton was part of the famous Keefe-Jefferson-Shvidki.

    I think Florida would love to form that line again.

  7. hackett30 says:

    thats a good point about florida.i guess danton just needs to prove that he really wants to be in the nhl

    NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!!

    Mike Danton (aka Mike Jefferson, Mike Tyson, Mike Modano, Mike Ritcher, Mike Hunt, etc.) has just been spotted as Mike Meyers (aka Wanye, Linda Richand, Austin Powers, Dr. Evil, Goldmember, etc.).

    ya, if Florida could pry Keefe and Danton away from there respective clubs, these 3 could really ignite each other again. Hey, if your florida, its DEFINITELY worth a shot

    I could see the Devils trading Tvedosky. I have really liked this guy since his days as a Jet. He is fast, and can really shoot the puck, not to mention some nice hands for a D-man. I am not sure with what is up with his point production this season, maybe a Devils fan could answer that one for me. But I am pretty positive he will end up being dealt to another contending team, but uncy Lou will make them overpay for this guy.

    im not a devil fan obviously but i would think he being an offensive minded defenseman that his points have dropped due to playing under pat burns strict defensive system

    Tivo was just starting to fit in the Burns system before his viral infection hit.

    He is good compliment to the system, he is starting to learn how to win, but he is taking some time to accept the trade off of personal scoring stats for team victories.

  13. MantaRay says:

    As soon as you read the NY POST is reporting…you can stop right there. This is a PR piece by Dantons agent using the gullible Mark (N)Everson as his media voice.

    No one in the league wants Danton. He brings nothing good to any team. He barly made the roster in training camp and eventually quit on his teammates. Not an endearing quality for any prospective teams, not to mention dealing with his poor quality agent advice.
