And then it basically devolved into a Lord of the Flies scenario where everyone started chanting "kill! kill! kill!" I'm thinking Gainey's head will be put on a pike by the city entrance some time tomorrow.

Thanks

Happy 100th Habs fans.

I do actually like Gomez. I said it earlier, with the right wingers he is an 80+ point player easily.

I'm just enjoying the theater.

I hear that! Habs fans are great. The 08 series against MTL was epic and so was the online interaction.

The Score is reporting Heatley to Edmonton for Cogliano, Penner and Smid. Wowza.

Eklund's podcast isn't bad actually.

Maybe he isnt as much of a kook. I bet clubs inquire on guys all the time. It depends on if he makes stuff up or if he has actual sources who "hear' things.

The Oilers were obviously on Heatley's OK list, so this one is locked up.

He has sources... but not everybody's beliefs are true. He doesn't say things are true, just that he's heard it... which is true.

Sources tell Sportsnet that the Ottawa Senators have traded disgruntled all-star Dany Heatley to the Edmonton Oilers for Andrew Cogliano, Dustin Penner and Ladislav Smid.

Haha. Is it me or does that return seem pretty underwhelming?

I wish we would give us a team, that's a guess. Probably moving Souray, which they are talking about.

They were NOT on his list. He had to be "forced" into it. The Ottawa GM probably said, "Look, if you decline, your staying here and playing, whether you like it or not."

Yep... When you demand/force a trade you water down your advantage greatly... as I see it.

No he's not. He will be, I think, but not yet. I just don't see the Flyers thinking there going to win a Cup with a second year defenseman logging 25 minutes.

If anyone wants to listen to Edmonton sports radio, there is discussion about the trade -- http://player.theteam1260.com/player

I put on Ottawa radio and Joe Morgan said "Manny Ramirez" three times in eight seconds. I assume the trade isn't being discussed.
