Don't shoot the messenger. Apparently this was just reported on Team 990 in Montreal. I don't see why this deal is necessary. Does he even fit in under the cap? Maybe his contract is pro-rated since he is a UFA next year.

ETA: The mods at HF closed the thread temporarily. It said it was reported as a trade though, not just chatter. I still have trouble believing it. Also, I noticed my title doesn't fit on the board. Note that I did include a question mark at the end. I am not trying to mislead anyone.

I was under the impression the Wings had room to fit a guy in with somewhere like $3M into their current cap situation? I'll wait and see with this one...

You can never trust the Montreal media. We'll see what happens.

haha true. In other news, Jacque Demers was in tears over the news of Mathieu's departure. More on this massive story at 2am.

The mods over at HF are pretty uptight. Closing down a trade rumor thread in the trade rumor section? That's pretty weak. I bet we will know more about this rumored trade at 2 am.

Well, he would be better than Meech, who has shown he isn't NHL ready and he would be faster than Chelios. He would fit in as the 6th D-man.

I am going through this in my head and I just can't come to a definite conclusion. The information seems to have been reported too specifically and straight forward to be BS, but I just don't see how we could have gotten another Meech/Lebda without giving up a Meech/Lebda. Maybe one will be waived. I guess if it were between the three of them going into the playoffs I'd take Dandy, but Kenny better not even dream of resigning him if this is true. With Lidstrom, Rafalski, Kronwall, Stuart, Lilja, Meech, Lebda, and Chelios already, and Jon Ericsson in the AHL, Dandenault has no place on this team moving forward. None.
