NOTE: Wikipedia is NOT a reliable source in most cases, unless the statement in question is sourced one way or another.

As for the LaRose "signing", a quick search on Google revealed no sources stating that LaRose has been signed by Detroit. The Hockey News Transactions have not listed him either (yet?). As those are usually very reliable regarding any transactions, we can officially dismiss this as a rumor/hoax.

Uwe Krupp? He's coaching an Iditarod team?

Yup, he does. Take a guess why we would have been relegated from the A Group this year if we wouldn't host the 2010 championships. One hint - losses against hockey power houses like France or Denmark do not exactly help...

As for the whole Busch story, it caused quite a lot of media hype over here when it came up back in 2008. Meanwhile, everybody is like "Who f***ing cares anyway".

Zidlicky to Rangers? (e2)
According to my sources within the Minnesota Wild organization, the New York Rangers are willing to part with D Wade Redden, RW Nikolai Zherdev, a 1st round pick and a rusty zamboni to obtain the services of D Marek Zidlicky. Remember, you heard it here first!

But how about this one:

Zetterberg to Penguins? (e3)
According to my sources within the Detroit Red Wings organization, the Pittsburgh Penguins are willing to part with C Sidney Crosby, G Marc-Andre Fleury and C Evgeni Malkin to obtain the services of C Henrik Zetterberg. Remember, you heard it here first!

We have not traded any of this years picks, or acquired any for this upcoming draft, so we have all 7 rounds picks in the order we place in...

This is not quite correct. Our 4th round pick this year has gone to Los Angeles as part of the Stuart trade in 2008. See also Wikipedia. THE NHL website also used to have an overview of every team's draft picks, but the link has vanished into nirvana somehow.

Nevertheless, I'm surprised that we have draft picks in every of the first three rounds this year.

Dammit! Another player jumping to go play in some Euro league.

Oh well, I hope he enjoys playing in Easton, wherever it is. We could have definitely paid him more.

Oh my, the British League... What does Easton have that Detroit has not? laugh.gif
