Mats in red and deal in the works to make space

TSN is reporting that Ottawa is still in the mix for Mats. True. However, to make this feasable, at least 4 million on cap space would need to be cleared to afford the rumored salary, as well as leaving a buffer for callups and something down the road.

The names I hear being activly shopped are of course Gerber, but not as obvious is Kelly...
Chris has played his role well, but at the 2.125/amun could find his way out of Ottawa. Another player would is rumored to be shopped (for the right return) is Brian Lee along with a package, but ottawa would want a proven puck moving defenseman.... Florida is rumored to be interested.

And I know you guys are gonna get pissy but the Chicago rumors will not die down.... but with Sundin now officially in the mix, its a game of pick your poison.... keep gerber and get sundin, or loose gerber, get habby but loose sundin....

What would you do?

Chi-town bound?

Things are heating up after yesterday afternoon.
Information is coming in that BM was working the phones, attempting to shop Gerber again. Even after one game, Murray felt it was evident that Martin would not cut it this year.

"Sub Par is not even close to being good enough. We saw enough of that **** last year and I don't think we'll see much of it this year."
"Brian and Eugine are committed to winning. They will make the moves the need to, when they can to make the team better. If that involves Martin then it will, but if anything is to be done, it will be sooner then later" - Team Source in Sweden.

I have heard that last night and this morning, Murray was in discussions again with Chicago in regards to Khabibulin and an "offensive d-man". We'll see what the day brings

Its been a while... Reasoning and Bulin

Hey everyone.
I know its been a while since i've last been able to post. No, its not because of school or work or anything like that. I've been fighting a cease and decist order that came as a result of news past along in this blog. The reasoning I was issued this order was due to possible "character defimation" of the accusing party who shall remain nameless due to legal reasons.

On to the fun stuff.
Its been one hell of a fun off season, and like most I was happy to see the Meszaros situation resolved and I am elated with the return as a fan.

However, on to the news. Ottawa could make a pitch for Bulin IF he is to come back on re-entry waivers, thus forcing Chicago to take on half of that 6.5million dollar salary.

Winchester looks to be a lock for the top six due to his work ethic, and management loves the kid, and although he is starting the season on the 2nd line, he will be moved up to the first to play with Spezza and Heater, moving Alfie down to spread out the offence.

Its good to be back...
