So what would you rather have…a new Ferrari or sex with a supermodel? For a million (tax free) dollars would you kiss a member of the same sex on the lips? How many of us have had these dumb conversations? All of us! So why not take these and parlay it into hockey terms?
I’m gonna throw out a few questions, answer honestly, maybe we’ll learn a little bit about each other, maybe we’ll be really creeped out by each other, maybe you’ll all think I’m a big dope!
Since it was announced that the Chicago Blackhawks placed fallen star, Theo Fleury on waivers, there has been much discussion about where he’ll end up. Here are a few bits of information that might add to the debate.

Before the puck was dropped in New York City, a game between the Flyers against the Rangers, Flyers GM Bobby Clarke was interviewed by MSGNetwork’s Al Troutwig.

The Fourth Period – A well-placed source who spoke with TFP on the condition of anonymity has said that the Colorado Avalanche are close to acquiring center Brian Smolinski from the Los Angeles Kings.
The Fourth Period – According to espn’s Darren Pang one goalie that the St. Louis Blues are interested in that not many people are considering is Edmonton Oiler Tommy Salo. The Blues, although having received solid goaltending from call-up Curtis Sanford the last four games, are still on the lookout for a number one netminder to lead them into the playoffs.
The Fourth Period – Rumors in Toronto and Carolina yesterday had Glen Wesley on his way to Toronto and possibly playing as early as Saturday night at the Air Canada Centre. Well Wesley is not a Leaf, at least not yet.
The Fourth Period – The Pittsburgh Penguins have been entertaining offers for a number of their roster players. Teams have shown interest in the likes of Martin Straka, Ville Nieminen, Jan Hrdina, Michal Rozsival and Johan Hedberg. Reports indicate that a deal or two is a solid possibility in Pittsburgh, but TFP has learned that a specific two aren’t going anywhere.

I’ll be updating everyone with rumors on every playoff spotted team, and what I believe they will do at the Trade Deadline….
It’s that time of the year folks! Who’s going to buy, and who’s going to sell? Some believe that there won’t be much movement this year. And that’s what we said last year, and there wasn’t. But there was that one deal that came directly out of the blue(Nieuwendyk and Lagenbruner for Arnott and McKay). And you know it’s going to happen again this year, it’s just like christmas, you know something good’s going to happen, but you don’t know what it will be.
Fan 590 Radio in Toronto reported (hypothesized?) this morning, the possibility of a Lindros-to-Toronto trade.
WFAN in New York last night reported the Islanders and Sabres have agreed in principal on a deal that would have Brad Isbister and either a prospect or a high pick going to Buffalo for Mirolslav Satan. TFP has put the same rumor on its website.
TSN.ca and sportsnet.ca have both reported that the speculated deal with the San Jose Sharks has finally Gone through.
To Toronto: Owen Nolan
To San Jose: Alan McCauley, Brad Boyes and a first round pick.
