Did the fat guy in Ottawa write this last week for his column today? Has he seen his Senators?
The thinking process amongst GMs is a change (even just a minor one) may shake up the team enough to get them out of the doldrums.
So, who may be next? Not every team can fire its coach.
Coming off an ugly 7-0 loss to Washington Friday, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren (if he isn't replaced by Ron Hextall) is willing to discuss anybody on his roster -- including the big names -- but Philly isn't alone.
We're hearing the Rangers are so desperate for help they might be prepared to move as well. Blueliner Michael Del Zotto, who has dramatically regressed and underperformed, is even among the names being discussed.
Stay tuned, folks, this could get really interesting.
Eliotte Freidman wrote this 2-3 weeks ago. The Rangers and Flyers(maybe the Devils too)were the teams most active in exploring trades.
The Rangers have won 3 in a row and 4 out of 5. They aren't winning the Cup but the crisis is over. Callahan will return sometime later this week of early next week. They shouldn't be desperate to make a trade and have another team take advantage of them.
By the way Garrioch wrote DZ "is even among the names being discussed",the Rangers should get a very good return. DZ is playing his weak side. Katie Strang said the Rangers would deal DZ in a chat 3-4 days ago. Not for scraps.
I saw McKenzie on the NHL Network a few days ago with the lovely Kathryn Tappan. He said teams want Oscar Klefbom from the Oilers. He suffered a concussion in a rookie game but has returned to play 10 out of 12 AHL games. Didn't play last night. McT doesn't want to move his top forwards or Klefbom for a D or a goaltender. Edmonton was embarrassed by the Wings last night.
