Higgins and Kotalik for Jokinen.

Wow, Eklund called this too and so did Brooks!

Well, they needed a center for Gaborik. Not sure Jokinen is precisely the style of center they need, but...

Ironically, they needed to replace Gomez.

Does that mean that Vinny ends up in Calgary?

I think so... might be Kovalchuk, but I got more doubts...

Why would Gainey care about any of those players is anyone's guess. I'm ******* sick of everyone saying Bob sleeps whenever a trade happens in the NHL.

Yeah because he knows how long Cammalleri is going to be out for and whether we are even buyers or sellers right now.

Oh relax. Everytime GMs make trades somebody says crap like this despite the fact that Gainey has been one of the most active GMs in the league since July 1st. I guess 27 other GMs are asleep at the wheel as well.

The Flames have lost 9 of 10, the Leafs are last in the East, and the Rangers have gotten shutout a bazillion times this year. Hence the activity.

Wow, I really think that Calgary is on to something here and wants to move for a big name like Kovalchuk or someone else.

What he hell is Gainey doing?

I would offer Gomez to any team willing to take him and then turn around and make a deal for Lecavalier and Downie.

Pouliot - Lecavalier - Kostitsyn
Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta
Downie - Lapierre - Kostitsyn
Darche - Metropolit - Moen

Markov - Gorges
Hamrlik - Spacek
Gill - O'Byrne

Price
Halak

By the way on the trade board people are saying it's Jokinen and Prust for Higgins and Kotalik. Not that it makes a big difference but yeah.

I don't understand why Sutter is trading guys when their value is at its worst. I know he has to make a change but geez..

Yeah off course gainey isnt aware just yet we just let cammy walk home... I am just tired of gaineys flair he is around the league he must be aware of what is going on and sometimes be the first to move but bob is always late thank god pouliot is producing.

I may overeact sorry guys i hate when everyone improves or steal some players while we watch the show..

I remember saying last year that Calgary should trade for Higgins as he is a Sutter like player, he may fit in this system.

We are ONE of 30 NHL teams, just because one of the other 29 adds a player doesn't mean we missed out on it.

Calgary is trading Jokinen because he wasn't a good playmaker for Iginla so I doubt Gaborik scores any more or is any more durable with his presence.

His behaviour makes it look like his ass is on the line.

That is precisely why I'm scared of Bob Gainey right now. Who knows what he could do in an attempt to save his own ass...

We have to take advantage of Sutter before it's too late.

That doesn't really seem like Gainey's type, although you could certainly argue the Gomez trade was his own "ass-saving" move.
