Trade Rumors and minor team trades.

Im not a cap guru but does NY really want a guy signed a 7.8M long term? They have a lot of young defensemen who are will be getting some nice contracts.

The Rangers are slowly falling back into the trap of having an all-star team that can't win, circa late 90s and early 2000s. I have no doubt that these signings will soon take their toll, but for now they may just win a championship.

For what its worth, sounds like a bunch of bullsh!t to me. Maybe this guy will finally be exposed:

Clarkson has more goals than Nash. nuff said

Clarkson also has more goals then Parise, Iginla, Giroux, Vanek, Ryan, Staal, Lecavalier, St. Luis, Alfredsson, Selanne, Heatley, Elias, Datsyuk, Franzen, Jagr etc etc..

So yeah, no, that doesn't say sh!t.

clarkson doesn't have a cap hit of $7.8MM and isn't asked to be the offensive leader of his team.

So by that logic, you also wouldn't want any of the players I mentioned above..? Seeing as how Clarkson has scored more then them this year..

I wouldn't want: Lecavalier, Iginla, Vanek, Staal, Heatley. I would not take these players on their current contracts for free.

I think a lot of the players you mention are way past their prime and may be declining such that I wouldn't want them.

Players of Nash's pedigree don't often have a happy career past age 30.

If Incarcerated Bob is so smart, let's see him predict what's going back the other way for Nash...it seems to be more than 50-50 that they get Nash now anyway after that heist they pulled off with the Panthers to clear cap space.

I think its largely enough that he is assuring that the trade is done. I mean, who else is saying that ? Guy is not 100%, 90% or even 80% accurate, but he is still a lot more accurate than most of the guys out there.

Lets see if the deal is really done. He seems pretty sure about it while nobody had any info saying that the deal was done.

Was just watching HNIC and on Hot Stove Elliotte Friedman said that the Blue Jackets have told Nash he will NOT be moved. Take it for what it's worth, but now this is just getting weird.

Well that sucks for Nash. Clearly he's not really wanted by CBJ, but now he gets to stick it out and relive this whole situation before the draft.

Incarcerated Bob makes educated guesses and every now and then something sticks and he tries to turn it around into him predicting it so he gets credit. I will admit I follow him on twitter because I find it funny when he gets defensive and tries to start sh!t by using his "goons". As Spector said today, the only Bob on twitter that has any real sources or info is Bob McKenzie.

He's also incredibly unprofessional. If he did have any actual sources I really don't know how much longer they'd give him information with the way he acts.

God you should have seen him with the Asomugha thing, bullying everyone on Twitter for a day that it was a done deal to the Jets and then when it didn't happen he ran away like a scared wuss.

I'll kiss the sky if it's a resolution to the ownership situation.

That would be terrific news :pray: or a ZP contract extension :uni:

I will be thrilled with either but I feel like the ownership situation is more realistic.

I still think ownership needs to get resolved before Zach can.

"#SNtrade. Going into Sunday nite, its sounding like #Rangers have backed out on the Nash sweepstakes. #Bluejackets demands remain too rich."

That's always a way of baiting teams back into a trade, I am not so sure this trade is over just yet...

I tried to see if I get some sort of update on this tweet that Mayday posted here from Daren Millard:

"Daren Millard ‏ @darenmillard Reply Retweet Favorite · Open

Who knows what the news is but he promised me he'd have info on it tomorrow.

So who thinks the devils will make a move before deadline? Or do we think zidlicky will be the only new player to join the team?
