I don't know if I've ever heard news of a trade from a live press conference before. Only online/newspaper/television reports. Considering how exited I am for whatever random trade Burke announces (if he announces one), I can only imagine your anticipation.
Im going to say, it WILL NOT be another defenceman being traded, UNLESS an NHL ready defenceman is in the deal. Itll either be a forward or a goalie prospect, and I pray to god it isnt the latter. Hopefully a Giguere trade.
Youd have to think the trade announced at the presser would be bigger than the Beauchemin deal because he didnt hold a presser for Beauch, The Apple of Burkes Eye
I would not say the trade at the PC would be bigger. Last year the Phaneuf trade happened first didnt it? Then the Vesa and Blake for Giggy one happened at the press conference didnt it? Which in my mind wasnt as big as the Phaneuf deal.
