Trade Deadline 2009

Posted by sxeraven on 2009.01.11 at 21:43
Mmmm... trade rumors...

Rumor 1: It's been around the block before... Atlanta is shopping Ilya Kovalchuk. Rumors once involved him going to Minnesota for Gaborik, but I don't see that happening. Atlanta would be ridiculously stupid to make that trade now.

Rumor 2: Tampa is shopping Vincent LeCavalier. Issue one is that there is disagreement in the higher ups in Tampa about this--some want to trade him, some don't. Issue two is salary--LeCavalier carries a high salary, so he'd have to go to a place with available funds under the cap. Rumor currently is Montreal, with Higgins, Plekanec, a prospect and a pick going to Tampa.

The trade deadline is shaping up to be interesting indeed. :)

Rumour one: Marian can't be traded because he's injured and on IR.

Rumour two: No one is going to take Vinny's 11 year contract.

Rumor one: I'm aware of that also. I was stating what I'd heard. That was going around before he went on IR and it was mentioned again today just as part of an intermission report I was watching. Aside from that, the rumor wasn't focusing on Gaborik. It was stating that Atlanta was shopping Kovlchuk.

Rumor two: I primarily agree with you on that one, but I've been surprised before. And though Montreal was the team named in the rumor, apparently they have been talking, there's this team out on Long Island that likes ridiculously long contracts. I'd die laughing if they made the trade.

No, you definitely shouldn't do that.

I love trade deadline. Its such a crazy time of year. Almost as crazy as the first and second days of free agency. Absolute insanity. Just expect anything and everything, and you'll be A-okay.

Ooops. :)

I've already dealt with my main player going all over the country.

I don't think they'd deal Orpik. If anything they might deal Gill. Which would be just to my luck. *L* I like Gill.
