    is there a mlbtraderumors.com equivalent for hockey rumors?

    I refuse to really read hockeybuzz.com and thefourthperiod.com

  2. Chris F says:

    Andrei Kostitsyn to Preds for 2012 2nd Round pick and conditional 2013 5th Round pick.

    Nashville just fleeced MTL.

  3. Section 121 says:

    There’s a note on the yahoo fantasy page under Dubi’s status that he’s practicing with the team today in NY and NYR is out on the talks with Columbus re: Nash.

    Any chance this is true?

    • Chris F says:

      I heard last night that Sather had pulled out of Nash negotiations.

      But, for what it’s worth, all the players involved in trade rumors, e.g. Dubinsky, Nash, Malone, Knuble, are practicing today…

      Business as usual, until it’s not.

      • Section 121 says:

        yeah, I guess it was the NYR out of Nash talks comment that surprised me

        • Chris F says:

          Nick Kypreos, usually pretty reliable, and Katie Strang both reported last night that NY was out of the negotiation due to Columbus’ unwillingness to come down from their asking price. We shall know soon enough whether this is the case…

  4. Chris F says:

    Interesting: video of city worker taking down Rick Nash banner in downtown Columbus this morning.


  5. Chris F says:

    Tom Gilbert from EDM for Nick Schultz from MIN.

  6. Chris F says:


    Unconfirmed rumor that Detroit D Brad Stuart dealt to Rangers for picks.

    If confirmed, why?!

    Stuart is a 32 year-old past-his-prime defenseman who doesn’t particularly bring any offensive prowess that might be beneficial to our PP. This makes no sense.

  7. Chris F says:

    Dan Winnick from COL to SJ. Not sure what the Avalanche got in return.

  8. Chris F says:


    Daniel Winnik and T.J. Galiardi from Colorado to SJ for Jamie McGinn and prospects Mike Connelly and Michael Sgarbossa.

    Blue Jackets send Sami Pahlsson to Vancouver for two 4th Round picks.

  9. Mark says:

    What is Colorado doing? They seem like they make moves just to make moves. Is Jamie McGinn that much better than Kyle Quincy to give up 2 rost players for? I clearly don’t know anything about the prospects they got back… but that is a team taht lacks direction. See Quincey’s quotes after being dealt, very interesting.

  10. Chris F says:

    Mike Mottau to Boston.

  11. The Suit says:

    Update 3:04pm: Via Dreger, Nash will be staying in Columbus. Rangers in on it till the end.

  12. The Suit says:

    Per Andrew Gross, Rangers to announce minor deal shortly…

  13. Spozo says:

    This must be some kind of a record. The rangers only made one trade this entire season. Has that ever happened before

  14. cnp says:

    hockeybuzz says we got John Scott for a 5th round

  15. Chris.C says:

    No Clue why? John Scott

  16. cnp says:

    well I guess it can’t really hurt to stand pat, but this was a disappointing deadline

  17. pavel says:

    THE John Scott?!?!

  18. Chris F says:

    John Scott? What is he going to bring that we don’t already have? Any deals should have been centered around improving the Power Play or giving us a little more offensive fire power.

    This seems like a move simply for the sake of making a move.

    With that said, I think Sather and the rest of management sent a very important message to the team today: confidence.

    • Chris.C says:

      Yes they did. And Lets hope that the team takes the management’s message and Builds off of it.

      But seriously John Scott? Bickel much better and younger of a player.

  19. Dave says:

    John Scott is AHL depth, simply put.

    • Chris F says:

      Yes, I suppose that’s a valid point. It would make sense, as the Whale are severely lacking.
