FOr as good as a Pronger-Chara matchup would be, they still can't stop the onslaught of Hossa, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Leino, Franzen and Hudler.

I love that we can already include Leino as part of our "onslaught."

Bob McKenzie: Ducks unlikely to trade Pronger until the summer. They want to wait and see what Niedermayer is going to do, first.

No kidding. The Ducks really ought to deal one or the other before the deadline. The current formula isn't working, and while both are on the downsides of their careers both would be really attractive to teams that think they have a shot this year. Maybe they can get an overexuberant Boston to mortgage their future at the deadline for two months of Niedermayer or a year+ of Pronger and make them next year's Penguins...

Fun year for Janik:

Janik signed as FA by Chicago
Janik put on waivers by Chicago
Janik claimed off of waivers by Dallas
Janik put on waivers by Dallas
Janik claimed off of waivers by Chicago
Janik traded to Dallas for future considerations
Janik traded to Montreal for Begin

Talk around here is Kessel again, this happened last year, they threatened to trade him, can't fine a suitor, bench him, bring him back, he is hot for 2 weeks and then goes back to being inconsistent.

He is young and has a lot of upside, but he is also a RFA at seasons end along with Krecji and Hunwick. Then they have Fernandez, Thomas, Axelsson and Hnidy as UFAs. I think Kessel is going to need to be shopped.
Word around here is they badly want Pronger, the Ducks could easily make them throw in Axelson, Hunwick, Wheeler, or any other prospect (other than Rask) and the Bruins would almost have to take the deal! Hell I bet if they offered the Ducks Kessel and Ference the Ducks would take it!

The Bruins while their last two games make it look deceiving have been struggling on offense, sure they put 6 up on the Panthers and Ducks, but lets be honest neither of those teams are superb defensive talents (Spare me I said last season the Ducks D was overrated, and it is more so this year).

In my opinion the B's are dumb to go after another D-man, Chara and Wideman are having better years than Pronger already, they need a top tier forward, Lucic is slowing down, Kessel is inconsistent, Bergeroen I am not sure will ever be himself again, Savard is a beast, Ryder is streaky and right now is hot, but streaky.

I think they would be better off trying to get an Eric Cole, there is talk around here that they are after Cole or Tkachuk, which in my opinion is a better move for them, well at least the Cole part, Tkachuk will just be back in Stl next year with whatever you gave up to get him!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

Vancouver claimed Ossi Vaananen off waivers from Philadelphia

Montreal claimed Glen Metropolit off waivers from Philly, as well.

Anybody think he's still good enough to come back to the Wings? I haven't watched him enough since he moved on.

He's still has heart and bounced back from a bad injury this year, but we don't need him.

I do agree with you in part I would never get rid of Kessel he's a game breaker type player. I do believe they stiil could use another defenesman ; but not Pronger those young prospects you mentioned are to valuable. Boston giving up Wheeler would be like us giving up Leino in a deal for a top notch defenseman which I woudn't do.

This is a rumor I first heard on NHL Live this afternoon, don't know how reliable the link is but I figured I'd just throw it out here.

To Toronto: Staal and Tangradi(Who they just aquired in the Whitney trade)

To Pittsburgh: Kaberle and Stajan

Not likely. That's far less than what Burke said he was seeking for Kaberle alone. (Young roster player, top prospect, 1st round pick)

Yea, that doesn't sound right at all. Like you said, Burke is asking for much more for Kaberle.
Plus, why trade a player only to turn around and trade back for him?

Mark my words... Hossa will retire a Red Wing.

GREAT READ! Just shows that not all Pens fans are complete f'n idiots.
Oh, and it proves that Hossa never said he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh!

I would like Pronger to go out east. That would make me happy, but Boston does look good with Pronger, Wideman, and Chara.

I had a stinging feeling the second we signed Leino that he would develop into a very strong player. He was just too good in Finland last season to not make even a little bit of an impact over here.

The Sharks could land Pronger at the trade deadline. Doug Wilson knows it's now or never to win the cup.
