Very realistic that Calgary wouldn't be interested in draft picks.

Hurricanes reaquire defenseman Anton Babchuk Presser

JR - "We are proud to announce we've reached a deal with the Calgary Flames to reaquire defensman Anton Babchuk. I'll now take a few questions"

Reporter - "What prompted this move?"

JR - "A number of things I guess, we weren't getting the kind of production from Joe that we were hoping, and he came into my office the other day and mentioned he didn't feel he was the right fit for the 'Run N Gun' offense we're trying to put into place here. I asked him if there was anything we could do to make him feel more comfortable, he has been with us for a while after all. When he quietly responded "no." I knew we had to start looking at potential trade options."

Reporter - "Did he give you a list of teams? Or did you simply look for the best deal?"

JR - "He did indicate that Montréal would be his preffered destination, so he could play with Erik Cole again and we tried our best to accomodate him, but at the end of the day trade taks with them about a Corvo//Subban deal fell through."

Reporter - "So... You then inquired about Babchuk?"

JR - "Well, I'm on the phone with Edmonton and Calgary quite a bit. We seem to be frequent trade partners and get along well. I called Calgary first and Feaster and I hit it off, didn't bother calling Edmonton afterwards."

Reporter - "How did the trade talks develop? What finally sold you on this deal?"

JR - "Well, to your first point I asked who was available. They were keen on the idea of adding Corvo cause he's from North America and well over 30, two things you need to be in order to play for the Flames. Babchuk had become somewhat redundant in Calgary the last season or so. While he was fine with collecting his paychecks sitting in the press box while useing his no trade clause, something that all Flames must accept, he did kind of want to play again. And after we let Poni go, we felt like we needed a replacement Ukrainian, and Anton already knows the system. That's what eventually sold us I guess, to answer your second point."

Reporter - "What will Anton's role be with the Canes now?"

JR - "I'd better let Kirk respond to that point. Mr Muller."

Kirk - "I'd expect to start him with Jay (Harrison) on the third pair for the moment, our top 4 is pretty solid with Timmy, Mike, Joni and Justin. Plus I feel that him and Jay have the potential to form the most elite eight minute a game shut down pairing in league history."

Reporter - "What about the other players? How were they added, and how will they fit in?"

JR - "Well, Babchuk clearly is more valuable than Joe, so we needed to add, and a goal scoring winger who can play defense like Andreas was a valuable piece to add. The problem that arose was that it's a Calgary policy to always be at the max contract limit, so we needed to take a player back. The other problem is that they also can't draft, so none of their minor leaguers were appealing. We wound up settling on Raitis cause he was available, and brings a bit of size and fighting ability back with him. Care to elaborate Kirk?"

Kirk - "Well, we'll have to see with Ivanans, he probably won't be an every day player, but once in a while, when we need some extra grit in the lineup, he could crack it (the lineup). And who knows, our fourth line is a bit of an anomily at the moment, so if he plays hard and plays well he might be able to find a home on it."

JR - "Thanks Kirk, and the swapping of picks was more or less to just sweeten the pot for them a bit. I think we'll end this here, but expect to see Anton in action tommorrow nite against the Islanders. And we'll have to see what we have with Raitis, and he may make an appearance tommorrow or down the road, depending on how he preforms."

Peter Jackson made an epic film about Antons return back in 2003 called The Lord of the Stanley Cup Rings: The Return of the King.

So in all seriousness now, what ya'll wanna do with Ivanans? Healthy scratch? Put him on 4th line and send someone on a 2-way down to Charlotte? See if he clears waivers//risk losing him?

So, we're home to the Isles tonite. The Anton will be making his debut tonite and I guess I'll leave Ivanans as healthy scratch for tonite unless anyone thinks we need a bit more grit on the 4th. Fourth line has actually played alright, mostly Bowman who has 4 or 5 goals. Brent and Dwyer haven't done a lot, but they play pretty good defence.

Also, real quick, cause I know it's a hot button issue in these parts. Our forecheck managed to posses the puck continually for the last 1:19 of this game, thus denying Vezina Favorite M. T. Knett from even making an appearance.

I believe that would be what the Caps fans referred to as "God Mode" from Semin.

I wonder if the Rangers will work out something around Ruutu for Staal.

On a side note, I'm happy to see The Anton acquired after not being able to obtain Subban. Longtime Hurricane that deserved top line minutes.

I'm not sure. The Ruutu contract including a NMC may have actually caused the Finns to turn against one another, making Jokinen and Pitkanen BFFF's. (Best Finnish friends forever).

Well, a few hours after I called him out, Ruutu scores the game winner

Box Score
----------

1st
----

6:41 - ES Goal - BUF - Luke Adam (Alex Sulzer, Tyler Ennis) - Slap shot from point.

14:51 - Penalty - CAR - Chad LaRose 2:00 for hooking Tyler Myers.

15:13 - SH Goal - CAR - Jeff Skinner (Eric Staal) - Intercepted a D to D pass on the point and streaked in on a short handed break away.

18:02 - Penatly - BUF - Jochen Hecht - 2:00 for goalie interference.

18:14 - PP Goal - CAR - Jordan Staal (Anton Babchuk) - Ryan Miller tried to catch Anton's point shot, but instead kind of flung it up into the air where a streaking Jordan singled up the middle into the net.

2nd
----

18:32 - Penalty - BUF - Shane Doan - 2:00 for hitting Faulk from behind.

18:45 - PP Goal - CAR - Tuomo Ruutu (Skinner, Jokinen) - Tapped in Skinner's rebound from the side of the net.

19:53 - Penalty - BUF - Tyler Myers - 2:00 for roughing Gleason.

3rd
----

2:46 - ES Goal - BUF - Steve Ott (Leopold) - Wrist shot from circle.

Nothing else happened in this game, tho it's worth mentioning that with 5 seconds left and an extra attacker for Buffalo, Ward made a ridiculous lunging glove save on a wide open Vanek in the slot from his ass.

Faceoffs: 38/66 CAR, 28/66 BUF
Shots: CAR - 37, BUF - 38

Three Stars
------------

* - Ward - 36/38 saves made
** - Skinner - 1G/1A/+1
*** - Leopold - 1G/+1

lol I know, I think it was a f***ed up line change, pretty sure I don't have Jeff anywhere near any of the PK units but somehow he was on the ice.

Also, thinking of giving Humpy Dawg the next start and maybe the one after to. Ward's been facing a lot of rubber latley and may need a break.
