Western Conference Trade Deadline Team Preview

Hefty title - hmmm...

Anyways, my new second favourite site (behind HF of course) has posted a WC team review leading up to the trade deadline.

http://schoolyourpool.com/JuiceBox.html

It has some teams on the bubble as buyers and others as sellers, but I am not too sure how it all will pan out.

I keep thinking that Minny will try to move Backstrom (UFA) if the price is right as Lemaire's system is a goalie maker and not the other way around (see Roloson, Fernandez).

Though there is talk that LA can make that push, once there they won't do too much and with like 20 of their last 30 games on the road, that till make it even tougher.

Thoughts?

Oh - and are LA really going to part with Frolov? This seems to me to be the new Ollie Jokinen saga...

Wait, what? Jokinen's on Phoenix...

I'm also not sure what he means by Dallas might not having Lehtinen available for the playoffs. He can predict the future, I guess.

I noticed this too - then I went to RW to check his actual status from their beat writer and he has been as healthy as ever... I know he has been down and out a few times this year, but maybe there is a crystal ball - lol.

Pretty unrealistic as far as the Kings go.

Schneider is an interesting choice for Phoenix. He is a PP fixture and that is on of our weak points. I just can't think of anything to give up for him and I doubt Phx would wanna give up a 3rd rounder for him.

Oh how I hate Gary Bettman's fickle favortism. Jokinen would still have been Los Angeles Kings property after the Palffy trade if he didn't muck things up by threatening to veto the deal.
