Did anyone else read Staples tweet about Strudwick or Staios to Vancouver? Nobody else has tweeted it, so I doubt it'll actually happen. It got me excited though, because it was tweeted shortly after I read that Motin and Arsene have been recalled.
Also, Souray has "softened" up. He will now accept a trade to 19 teams, not just the 10 he had submitted earlier. He will not accept a trade to a Canadian team.
Interesting how things like that change when there is less than an hour to go. If I was Tambo I hold on to him until the summer and his NTC expires. We'll get more for him then anyway.
I don't know if there is a time you get more for a player than another time.
Souray isn't playing right now, won't play before the end of the season so I'd be very hesitant to trade for him if I was a rival GM knowing I'm paying him 9 million for two more years when he may or may not return to his '09 form.
