there was a recent article (you might find it on the Flames board) where Sutter said Langkow will be cleared for contact in July... but I remember Langkow's comments after the injury, it shook him up bad... he might be physically able to compete but that man's family is everything to him and when he is choking back tears talking about how he was scared for his family for seeing it happen... you know the thought of leaving the game has to be there

Something like Ian White for Thomas Plekanec and a conditional 1st or 2nd if Plekanec walks?

extremely unlikely... I can see something like Plekanec for Nystrom and a 3rd/4th

I really want to know, as I think many fans on here do as well.

When, exactly was the last time Eklund was right on a trade or a signing BEFORE it had actually been confirmed by a source?

Can anyone dig that up for me and my fellow HF'ers?

Nearly every team in the league was after JBO, Sutter just offered the most for his rights. And everyone in the entire league new that Sutter wanted Jokinen for about 2 years before he finally got him. I don't know much about the Flyers/Preds rumours in the past so I can't comment there. Just saying that he is right maybe once out of every 100 or so rumours he starts. You'd think he'd have a better success rate with all of his "contacts".

so is Pleks. It's similar to the Bouwmeester deal from last year. Not a bad idea, although I'm not sure Montreal would have a use for Nystrom with Moen around.

He's actually been pretty good with Flames rumors. Phaneuf, Bouwmeester and Jokinen he was correct about. I guess if you throw enough stuff at the wall something might stick.

I see no reason why sutter would go after a middle range center man for more than 5M a season. IMO why wouldn't he spend 2M more an get an elite centerman. Sutter is wasting his time for a player that would be useless in the organization. So who cares? It EKLUND!

Suppose he pulled this one off, Plekanec is going to demand a pretty decent contract, how's Sutter going to slip that under the cap? And Langkow retiring isn't a good enough scenario, because until it happens, that's way too many "ifs".

Montreal

Plekanec

for

Calgary

Moss
3rd or 4th round pick

I think this would be a bit better than Nystrom, I think Montreal would want a player like Moss who can score a bit and is young. Nystrom we already have in Moen so I could see a deal like this happen. This helps Montreal and Calgary in a sense that their bottom 6 would be complete, they get 1.3 from Moss but save the possible 3.7 which would of paid Pleks 5mill if thats what he asks for, on top of the capspace they have available now and the 2mill extra that the cap is to go up by. This could get them the big center they need as they definetly would have the money for it then if Pleks is gone and now Halak is gone and he was probably looking at 4mill per.

I doubt anything comes out of it though.

He can E4 a Plekanec deal, but couldn't or wasn't even anywhere in the same boat as the real pro's for finding rumors out, when it came to the Halak deal when it was broke.

You're not going to get a signed player and a pick for a UFA. The reason Nystrom has been suggested is because he's likely priced him self out of staying with the Flames and he's a UFA. It'd be a trade similiar to what Calgary did to get Bouwmeester.

How about take Kotalik as well? Not a center, but he's big, and according to Sutter he's a top guy.

Maybe $4M per season. Still haven't seen anything on it, but it wouldn't surprise me much to see this. It would be another Eklund success story.

Kudos to Wheatking if this is true though.

E4-His dog picked it
E5-Its been reported as done on at least 5 other sites
