Hot new rumour: 3 way deal: Cujo, Jagr, Kolzig

Don't ask me the source, because I'm not 100% sure of its origins, but I think it comes from someone within the Detroit organization.

And, on that note, spare me the cynicism of the lack of legitimacy of the source, etc.

Here it is:

To the Red Wings: Jaromir Jagr

To the Caps: Curtis Joseph, a "young" defenseman (from Colorado)

To Colorado: Olaf Kolzig


This deal makes sense on a # of levels:

1) Red Wings get rid of Joseph, which is a must. They get Jagr, who is signed long-term, but he is still potentially the league's best player when he is on his game, and Detroit does not really have any other long-term financial commitments besides Darrian Hatcher. The Red Wings can certainly afford one big contract, and perhaps they are not worried about a salary cap issue if they think contracts signed before the new CBA are "grandfathered". Red Wings fans will have an established superstar to cheer for after Yzerman, Hull, Chelios and others are gone.

2) Capitals get rid of their long-term contract which they cannot afford to keep.

3) Colorado gets their goalie.

4) So why would Washington move Kolzig for an older, more expensive goalie? Good question. The best answer than I can come up with is that they figure that Joseph will get them through this season, and potentially stand on his head--as he often does in the regular season--and get them into the playoffs, = more revenue. Plus, while Joseph is almost done career wise, they do have Maxime Ouellet whom they probably feel is ready to make an impact in the NHL, at least after the lock-out, and be their goaltender of the future.

AND, they get a "young defenseman" which is certainly a need of theirs to go along with Emenger. My guess is that this defenseman is either Martin Skoula or Keith Ballard. Colorado needs to give something up to get something, and a quality goalie for a bright, young dman fits both team's needs.

So, let the firing begin...

The Wings DONT want Jagr! God damnit! They have said soooo many times they are looking for a center! Is Jagr a center? NO! He is an overpaid underproducing winger!

Isn't this basically the same old 3-way "rumor" (never verified anywhere) that's been floating around for a month now?

that's a good point....I dont we'll see any Keith Ballard for Olaf Kolzig deals too soon....the only way this could possibly work is if the young defenceman is Morris....

It really depends if PL believes he needs an upgrade in net enough to weaken the defence even more....

How does Ballard help Washington now when he probably will be at Minnesota for the next two years?

All this is just a different spin on an old and annoying trade rumor. You expect us to take this serious when the source looks "less" than legitimate?

Yes it is the same rumor.

But I don't know what you mean about it "never being verified anywhere." Many links were posted to different media types and one GM (Brian Burke) who talked about it during many different times these past few weeks.

Oh what a money grabber he is, took LESS money to go to Detroit rather than stay in Toronto. Geesh, he's just in it for the money!

Well a few thougts :
I don't bite that "rumor" at all.

However...
When someone says Jagr is unproductive : OUCH!!!

When someone says Detroit won't get Jagr because Holland said so : OUCH!!!

It seems when there's thread with a stupid first post on it, people feel obliged to be as stupid...

...it's pretty much a certainty that Kolzig will go nowhere because his child gets special medical treatment only available in Washington DC.

If the Avs want Kolzig they will have to offer up much more than just Skoula..
