According to a blogger: news tonight or in the morning
First of all, don't go ape$hit on me... it's quiet and I was reading this blog so I thought I'd share for those of you who are bored. This is not my blog nor do I believe everything in it.
Ok Guys time for some meat. I'll say this much. There are a couple of things holding up these potential deals. One is that there are two young players being discussed that the other teams want and Bob will not part with. One is a roster player while the other is not. The other thing holding things up is the status of Saku Koivu. His status will dictate the urgency with which we need to move and what we would be willing to give up for a true 1st line center.
As for the free agent I mentioned, it appears it will get done later today with an announcement either tonight or tomorrow AM.
here is the link to the blog. Apparently he works on the Habs' legal team... take it for what it's worth...not much:
This seems like as good a place as any to post the lyrics to the Rush song Trees:
There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas
The trouble with the maples
(and theyre quite convinced theyre right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks cant help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade?
There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream `oppression!`
And the oaks, just shake their heads
So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
the oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
And saw ...
