Best Rau moment I remember was his first NHL goal against the Bruins a couple years ago, a 2-0 win.

Once an Aero, always an Aero! Cya Rau.

I'm fairly confident Chad Rau exists, unsure on the other two names...

Riley Brace put up a lot of points in the OHL but has bounced between AHL and ECHL so far this year. I'm guessing he could play in Iowa with the lack of offense down there.

Not sure if this has something do to with it. But Russo on his blog said zucker may not go down during the break he wasn't sure though.

I'm fairly confident that this Gogol guy published 'Dead Souls' in 1842. Didn't know that he switched to hockey tho.

Brace is about the same size as Rau but 5 years younger.

This looks like the Sharks needed to dump a contract.

1 for 1 swap as far as NHL contracts. Brace is on an AHL deal.

Wild trade for Gogol

Taken from the MNWILD.com site...

http://wild.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id...id=DL|MIN|home

Not sure I understand this trade, maybe you guys can make some sense of this. Wasn't Rau one of our better prospects?

No. He isn't even the best Rau playing in the state and there's a thread discussing this below.

HAhaha in light of what everyone was saying about Steph Veillieux, i invite you to read Gogol's HF profile:
Quote:
Curt Gogol is a scrappy offensively challenged winger with the competitive spirit of a lion. What he lacks in hockey skills he makes up for it with hard work and determination. He is not the most intelligent player despite having all the tools necessary to become a respectable two-way forward. He continues to take bad penalties and his average defensive game might not be enough to get him to the show. At best Gogol projects to be a fourth line checker. If he ever does make it though, he will be a fan favorite.
