WXYT is set to report on "a player the Wings are chasing"....not sure if it is related.
....Cheering for McCarty.

Well Detroit is closer to Ontario.

If its not Ottawa or Toronto I would assume Pittsburgh, Buffalo or Detroit would be his other choices. All are close to Ontario.

Roberts said before that he would only accept a trade to Toronto or Ottawa, so we'll see if he's softened that stance or not.

Just talked to a co-worker about this, we have the same thoughts. I would be shocked if it wasn't one of those three teams. Does Buffalo have the cap room? Where exactly would he play in Pittsburgh?

With all the injuries Buffalo has they can move someone to the IR and that clears cap space.
Not sure who he would play with in the 'Burgh.

It will be interseting to see what Florida gets for Roberts. I can't see Holland not being interested.

If Roberts goes to Buffalo for a 2nd round pick or something, then you'd have to get the feeling that Holland really is serious about not making a deal that involves picks.

Given the price for players already moved, I highly doubt it will be for as little as a 2nd rounder.

Let him go anywhere but Detroit. He would not improve this team at all IMO and would not be worth whatever we have to give-up

Tkachuck = 34 years old
Forsberg = 33 years old

Roberts = 40 years old.

He may go for more than a 2nd, but I'd be suprised if he went for anyhting more than a 1st rounder straight up. But who knows. I'm convinced that a handfull of GMs have gone crazy.

Yeah, but Robets is in better shape than either of those two guys. He will fetch quite a bit, given the current prices.
