Of note, apparently Delmore may more than likely stay in the minors as Philadelphia is ready to swipe him off waivers if he is put on recall, so there is a good chance that Delmore won’t come back to bite the Lightning as a member of the Thrashers this season.
Once a year the Thrashers make a "garage sale" type of trade. This is your 2006-07 version.
Conversation might have gone something like, 'We're trying to get rid of two guys who don't play, what do you want to pay for them?' ... 'done.'
Two things on Delmore. First, he's known around these parts as "Any Elmore" Why? No D.
Second, I can still hear Steve Levy of ESPN (one of my faves) calling Delmore's name in utter shock when he scored a clutch goal in the playoffs. "Andy Delmore! (I'll be damned)"
On Deveaux. I saw him play twice with Johnstown this year, once here in Gwinnett and once in Augusta (benediction night). He scored two goals in GWT, that couldn't have hurt him. On one he pulled Turps out of the net and snuck it behind him, and on the other he scored on a rebound. He did very little in Augusta though. He does hit, play on the PK. My problem with him was that he hadn't adapted to the new rule that says you're not allowed to wrap your stick around someone. Often a sign of a bad skater.
On a side note, I found this lovely poutine smiley:
