By the way, I wrote a brief insert to my regular column on Thursday saying that the Peca hit PROVES the Lundmark for Jagr rumor was true.

That's because every time Sather is just about to trade a guy, he goes on I/R.

He had a deal for Richter set up then boom, knee!
He had a deal for Dvorak set up and then boom, knee!
He had another deal for Richter set up and then boom, concussion.
He was going to package Syl Lefebvre when the defensman went behind Sather's back to have knee surgery over the summer.

So who am I to doubt the Lundmark for Jagr rumor given how soon after the rumor broke the kid goes home on crutches?

Of course, kidding aside, if such a deal HAD been submitted to NHL HQ for approval as the Lee Hamilton rumor suggested, neither JJ nor JL would have dressed, precisely to prevent such contingencies from occurring.
