You didn't know about it? It was announced a week ago.

He says Gionta to LA "for a defenseman"... so we're likely talking Tom Preissing here (because he's it when it comes to chances of being traded). It sounds like he'd work for NJ, but creates an even worse leadership vacuum on defense in LA (not that that would stop Lombardi).

Perhaps this is, in some way, connected to Vishnevski's placement on waivers. I can somewhat see NJ agreeing to trade Gionta for Preissing (plus, perhaps, junk or a conditional pick) if LA agrees to also claim Vishnevski. EDIT: Never mind. He's going back to Russia.

Vishnevski supposedly cleared.

Vishnevski is headed to Russia, that's why he was placed on waivers.

Quote:
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said today that Vishevski has cleared waivers and that the 28-year-old defenseman will play in Russia in 2008-09.

"He expressed a desire to go back to Russia for personal reasons and I respect that," Lamoriello said. "We didn't want this to develop into a situation September, so we placed him on waivers now and this will allow him to go play there."

No thanks from a rangers POV. Gomez for 6 years > Gaborik for 1 year. plus Having Gomez adds so much to the Rangers-Debbies rivalry.

No thanks. Who scores goals for Minnesota anyways? Gomez is primarily a set-up player and with no goal scorers, Minnesota is screwed up. Gomez is overpaid and not worth Gaborik.

Oscar Moller plays right wing, he is not a puck moving D. But if you're looking for one of the Kings young defensive prospects you are not going to get any of them just for Gionta unless its Harrold or maybe Voinov.
