Strong Trade Winds Blowing in Beantown

Boston (AP):

Beantown weatherman Benjamin Tabart is forcasting strong trade winds this evening. Apparently a strong nor'easter is bearing down on the city, and Beantown will not be the same tomorrow. Residents have been told to stay tuned...

Those aren't trade winds, Bobby - you just have indigestion from continually eating and drinking at the Rusty Bean!

I'm pretty sure the St. Louis reference had nothing to with my Blues, but rather the sir name of a certain available winger who is being peddled. Could a pair of former linemates be getting traded for each other?

Aftermath

Boston (AP):

The bell in Franklin's tower rang loud and mighty through the night, as the four winds blew hard and fast through the Bruin locker room. A nor'easter stretching from the Atlantic to the great lake they call Gitchigoomie came down hard on all hockey clubs in its path. The Toronto Maple Leafs saw winger Martin St. Louis literally plucked from his dressing bench by the strong anti-cyclonic winds. At exactly the same time, a similar Force 9 gust picked Vincent Lecavalier up out of his red Ferrari while enroute to the Rusty Bean for a quick brew with GM Kruegs. Lecavalier was swept away in utter astonishment as his sports car's size grew inversely proportional to his altitude. The counter-clockwise rotation on this giant system guaranteed that both players might pass each other while in transit, but due to the large center of the low, they only shared the same latitude for a fraction of a second - separated by approximately 10km while over Burlington, VT. And then as if the Wizard of Oz himself was controlling mother nature, both players ended up exactly where the other had been before the storm. Martin found himself behind the wheel of a red Ferrari enroute to having beers with GM Kruegs, and Vincent landed upright on a bench in the Maple Leafs dressing room. Both were dazed and confused, but after a healthy dose - of smelling salts - and a few pints later that night, both players welcomed the change of scenery. Upon arrival, when asked by reporters what it was like to literally fly at night, both players responded,"Dude - I saw the morning from the other side." Awesome.

I think this trades going to be valued based on two things one can vinny find his magic again which he's slowly been regaining and two can st Louis keep up at this pace. Either way this trade is a big win for Boston ATM in my opinion

Too true on the importance of Vinny regaining form... two other factors to keep in mind. First, Vinny is a few years younger, so he could be a longer-term solution for the Leafs. Second, the demand in the league for top-line centers is greater than for just about any other position (this coming from someone who spent the better part of the last year looking for one, only to end up getting a guy in Zajac who is barely scoring at a .5 ppg rate (which of course is the only reason he was available at all!).

Toronto certainly needed a better scoring-line solution at center than Drury or the retiring Weight; Vinny offers them a key piece for the next several years. Boston by comparison was in good shape down the middle, but desperately needed help on the wing, so this really is a deal that works for both parties.

The dollars are close, too, so it's essentially a cap-neutral move.
