It is official... Filatov is off to the KHL on loan from Columbus.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=298705

Nikita's interview over the loan:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puc...urn=nhl,203134

Quite a few Columbus fans are unhappy with Hitchcock more than anyone, because they say that the team is in need of more offense and he prefers playing "AHL goons" and going all defense in third period etc... I haven't watched them outside of our games with them. So I dunno. Interesting turn of events though.

To me it seems like it split bewteen them being mad at Hitch and not being mad. Hitch wanted more effort, consistency and play in his own zone. They were saying during one game he had 3 turnovers in his zone on the same shift making dumb plays. Hitch is trying to make him a better all around player but some seem would rather him be a one dimension floater.

I'm playing the Don Cherry card. No more Russians. Frolov, Loktionov and Voynov are enough.

With Smyth down for the forseeable future, you'd have to think Lombardi is talking to Jim Rutherford.

I hope so. Whitney for Purcell and NYR's 3rd from Boyle deal.

Have they previously been linked to Whitney? Or is this just an idea?

Fans are clamoring for Whitney because of a few reasons, one being that additional scoring help is needed with Purcell looking unprepared for top six duties, the other being the loss of Ryan Smyth. Carolina is also looking out of playoff contention so Whitney might be a hot commodity.

The guy can still produce, as evidenced by his remarkable numbers. He hasn't had less than 50 points since 2003-04. He isn't afraid to go to the middle of the ice to score either (something not many Kings players are willing to do).

Ray Whitney would be a great target.

With the expected long term signings coming of Kane, Toews and Keith, you'd hope Lombardi (if he already hasn't) would contact Chicago as well. As everyone knows their need to shed contracts for next year, and the guys rumored to be potentially available are definitely intriguing: Patrick Sharp, Kris Versteeg, Dustin Byfuglien, and Dave Bolland but he's no longer in there due to his injury.

Frolov would be an interesting target for them considering they wouldn't lose much of anything in the trade but his contract would come off the books at the end of the season, which is what they need. Something like Frolov + a pick(s) for one of the Hawks?

Gotta aim for Sharp. Best of the bunch, ex-Flyer to boot. From there lower your standards, but start with him. He's definitely worth it.

I'd love to grab Sharp and Chicago will have to move atleast a couple guys with the reported soon to be re-signings of Kane, Toews and Keith.

So... the Man Behind the Curtain has us interested in Ponikarovsky. Wouldn't mind that one bit.

Ponikarovsky moving West? Possibly LA?

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklun...hicago/1/24384

Any thoughts about the guy?

Ponikarovsky would be a very good addition. He's big, he can skate and he's got a rocket of a shot and has been a consistent 20 goal scorer (21, 21, 18 and 23 goals over the past four seasons).

He had a career high of 61 points last season and is en route to score 20+ goals again this season (with 7 goals already in 19 games). Poni is set to become unrestricted at the end of the season. He may be a player in high demand though and Burke might wait for the highest bidder.

Good values IMO, # 2 may be a slight overpayment.

Might be slight.....but its probably going to be a late/mid 1st, Frolov is a UFA at the end of the season, and Moller is a good prospect but Im having problems finding where he fits into our lineup.

In Versteeg and Barker we get two roster players, a top 6 forward that can play center/wing and a top 4 defenseman with a big shot.

What would it cost us to get him in your opinion?

Knowing Burke, nothing less than Schenn and a sincere apology from Lombardi.

IMO Hagman for Purcell and a 3rd would be a solid deal for both clubs.
