That's a great rumor coming absolutely from nowhere....I mean even the great Jean Pagé talked about it before hockeybuzz does which means that if it happens, Jean Pagé suddenly becomes "a source" and a great hockey mind!!!!
habs need a D, whos the guy they want to give up trade and is suspended: sergei
its called applying different theories into one...geez
Add the fact that TBay has more than 6 d-men and you have a perfect "rumor". It could even happen. If we would have known that Ribeiro HAD to get traded, we would have looked at Dallas and see that they had 8 d-men in their roster. Knowing that Côté was injured and we had no other solutions at D, that trade could have been predicted and called a rumor by the greatest source possible meaning people with no connections whatsoever....
Mind you, I believe that some of our "Clowns" of the net might have connections which explains how sometimes they can be right. Problem is that, as far as I'm concerned, they are using those connections so that then they could invent stuff by guessing. Eklund was pretty succesful I think 2 or 3 years ago at the UFA period. And I believe he might have had a lead or 2. But then he uses the fact that he might have known 1 or 2 people that might even not be in contact with anymore to pretend that he knows everything in the league. Same for some other "sources" we have thorughout the net. Though some others have no clue what they are talking about...
Eklund is a fraud... we were discussing the possibility of krajicek on here like 2-3 days ago.. I find myself going to his site less and less.. I used to be entertained, but now its just stupid.
We have a winner
The reason he targets montreal so much is because the fan base is so vast. And it would appear that most of his rumors come from hfboards because every time he says something might happen we have already talked about it.... a couple days ago.
How about Ranger + Krajicek + 3rd for A. Kostitsyn?
Ranger's contract is only about $900k
Krajicek is about $600k if Im not mistaken
The question remains, where does Montreal think that TB will end the regular season?
The other advantage is freeing up more cap space to take on a big $$ blue liner (or two).
Ranger scored the first goal of the season for TB.
Interesting trade rumor.
IMO..that won't work for the Habs..Even though the Habs need a Dman to fill in for Markov trading A. Kostitsyn to get a dman doesn't make sense from the Habs POV right now...
If anything the Habs need another top 6 forward for the 2nd line to play with Pleks and A. Kostitsyn..By trading A. Kostitsyn for a dman it fills one hole but creates an even bigger hole in the top 6 for the forwards..
