EDM Needs: PP quarterback. top two centreman.

TB Needs: PP quarterback. They can score goals, if they can get a #1/2 defenseman without giving up anyone on their roster...

NYI: Laraques, Smith
Big George provides the fighter the NYI needs and he's one of the few enforcers who can actually be counted on to play well and not embaress himself. Jason Smith gives that tough-as-nails

EDM: Svitov + (Niiniimaa OR Andreas Holmqvist)
Svitov gives the Oiler a possible #2 centre, who might not be able to play this year but certainly should do so next year. Having a 1-2 of York and Svitov isn't bad. But Svitov was sent down from TB because of poor play, which isn't good. Niiniimaa comes back as an impending RFA, with the hope that he could be signed for much less money. If KLowe doesn't like Janne, then perhaps a young defender like Holmqvist from TB could interest him.

TB: Roman Hamrlik
He's the man who TB wants in any case.

Niinimma+Hamrlik for Smith+Laraques?
that's a lousy deal for the nyi.

NYI with Cairns and Godard don't need another 4th line goon.Svitov brings toughness,but he also has a lot more potential then Laraques.

from Fischler's column today:
Donít be surprised if Vitaly Vishnevsky winds up on an Eastern team; perhaps the Islanders.
