Quick Question

When are trades allowed? Is there a freeze period right now?

No , there is no freeze right now. But I think that you will have to wait 2 weeks or so for first trades

Isn't that a definition of a freeze?

Nope. In fact after the trade deadline you're still allowed to make trades. It just makes those players ineligible for the rest of the year. Strange but true. I know because the Flames once traded Rocky Thompson for Filip Kuba after the deadline. Kuba was already out for the year with an injury.

That's actually quite interesting. No offense but I'd kinda like to see it from a credible link.

As soon as the cup is won you can trade.

Don't think we're gonna see trades until draft day though.

I didn't know about the Kuba deal, but I doubt the guy's making it up.

But, I do know that once the playoffs start, any team not in the playoffs can make a deal. Take last year for instance. Once Philly was eliminated, Checkmanek was dealt shortly afterward to LA. Marc Bergevin was also dealt to Pittsburgh, shortly after the Lightning were eliminated.

You can make trades as soon as YOUR season is over. when Trevor Linden got traded to the Habs from the Islanders, it was like the middle of May when it happened.

rules changed---The NHL got pissed at being over shadowed by teams trading players---officially you can trade 24 hours after the cup is over--but a gentlemen's agreement says after the NHL awards are handed out


But my comments are moot right now--because we are four days beyond that and nothing
