Having a guy like Marleau would be nice, but there's no reason for us to trade a player who is rapidly becoming one of the more popular players overall over here, already is one of our best goal scorers (second only to Nash this past season), and has been the biggest playoff stud on our team both before and after he became a Jacket.

Admittedly, Hejda's lost a teeny bit of his lustre after that playoff series (must've lent it to Klesla ), but that doesn't make this any less bats*** insane. One doesn't even *consider* giving up so much unless what you're getting is the only thing standing between you and the Cup, and we are so not there yet.

My prediction is that Howson signs a point-producing defenseman and a backup goaltender, resigns some of our other guys, and calls it an offseason. I'm thinking Spacek and Nittymaki, but there's no way to be sure, really.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
