    ok, bill guerin

    New jaersey-Denies

    If the Canucks got Sullivan it would be nice to have more scoring and grit but only if he makes it through the playoffs… and I’d love to have Jokinen but we’d have to give up our 1st rounder for him and more… it’s boils down to him or Antropov. We need to pull the trigger to make it to Lord Stanley. Tucker(played with Sundin) and Recchi(BC boy) wouldn’t look to bad in a Canucks uni too…

    I heard a rumor that you were the one who shot J.R…..Is this true? Because if so, I'm mad at you. TV has never been the same since this happened.

  7. trueblue says:

    maybe….i heard he was montreal bound earlier in the day

    i dont want to see the rangers deal a lot for him if they go for him
    i mean… i wouldnt be against him coming over….i think he would help….but i rather of had Shanny than Guerin
    truthfully i would like to see a deal done with edmonton for dustin penner
    that to me is worthwhile and sticks to the rangers overall game plan

  8. honestabe says:

    personally, i'd like to see more Canadians on the Canadiens

  9. HABSSTAR says:

    Radek Bonk’s name should never be included in an article entitled “Mega Trade Rumors”

  10. VCRMillionaires says:

    Well i heard that there's double the amount of rumors happening on Tuesday then Monday…. Beat that… and only 1/16th of them are true… ooooh rumors….

  11. RossCreek says:

    LOL, Agreed.

    Wings are not looking for a goalie and would have to trade as much salary from their roster as they get back in any deal. Holland has repeatedly said he will not trade for a goalie or sign one in july that wants good money. Their tandem is costing them just over 2 million and Holland plans to keep that to a minimum for the future and spend the money on defense and forwards.

    Any goalie making more than 2 million is not going to Detroit and most under that are no better or proven than what they already have.
