Are you serious!? The DUCKS the frontrunner for Blake?!

Apparently having Niedermayer, Pronger and Schneider isn’t enough for the Ducks. They are now targeting and appear to be the frontrunner for Rob Blake! Just disgusting to think about.
The 4th period is one of a few sites reporting that if Blake doesn’t go to the Wings, the Ducks seems like the probable destination.

Habs Sign Apparent NCAA Star

On Thursday, the Habs signed former University of Denver Star Brock Trotter to a 3 year Deal (Not an Entry Level Contract) with undisclosed terms. Trotter had left the UofD earlier in the year to declare himself a Pro. His advisor, Don Meehan, told NHL clubs about the declaration a short time later. Trotter was suspended from the University for unknown reasons and according to Denver’s Coach, George Gwozdecky and Habs Director of Player Recruitment, Trevor Timmons, it was a private issue between player and coach.

Instead of a high priced sniper, here are two trades the Habs need to make.

Go after a big tough D-man who can log lots of minutes and play with Hamrlik on the second pairing. Trade Ryder, O’Byrne, Chipchura and Kostopolous to Phoenix for N. Boynton and F. Sjostrom. Then Trade for one of the best face-off men in the league M. Sillinger. Trade Begin, Dandenault, Gorges and the rights to Perezhogin to NYI for Sillinger, T. Hunter and R. Martinek.

Habs, a look ahead, what are your thoughts?

After storming throughout the season so far and a 4th spot in the East seemed to be reserved, the habs find themselves in a little trouble. A terrible game against the Leafs and an embarrassment against the Sens has all of us wondering, what will happen?
