What is up with the struggling teams?
Media’s trade rumors are lame. Let’s speculate on what trades could happen any time soon and which teams could be partners.
The Chicago Blackhawks continue their search for a running mate for Martin Havlat due to the loss of Michael Handzus, reports the Boston Globe.
During Saturday’s tilt against the Kings, Coyotes GM Mike Barnett went on local TV during the 1st intermission and declared that Ed Jovonoski will not be traded for any reason. Barnett also stated that he and Gretz both gave Jovo their personal word that he wasn’t being shopped.
Rumors out of Montreal this week are saying that a trade involving Montreal goaltender David Aebischer and D-man Sheldon Souray is in the making. Some say that a deal will be made with a team located in the south-west of the United-States. Now, this makes sence for a few reasons.
Bucky Gleason of Buffalo News is speculating that Kevyn Adams may be on his way out of Carolina, after a recent fight with a team mate during practice, and reduced ice time.
Muckler said he would asses his team (The Ottawa Senators) during their last road trip, to see if he needed to make changes. The Sens were 1-3 on the road trip, beating only the struggling penguins.
I know it’s only 15 games or so for most teams in the NHL, but there is some talk going on. The three teams who will likely make are a deal are Philadelphia, Ottawa, and Calgary. Philly, and Ottawa, are underachieving, but Calgary has very disappointing, and for sure haven’t been playing like the Stanley cup contenders they were expected to be.
