Welcome back Anssi



What a disappointment that would be! Would it take 3 scouting trips to get a deal done for him?!?

Eckford was scratched out for a "lower body injury".

so, that window is either closed, or the mystique continues to grow, whichever way you want to play it.

I just read this from the comments on TGs blog. No validity but could be something...

"Eckford and vas were both injured today.And there was most likely around 3-4k there. There were also scouts there from the wild and swb.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre


That's what came to my mind, but I thought this person was referring to NHL scouts. Would they just be scouting the opposition?

Holy Crap... I told my friend today that I'll eat my hat if this happens. I firmly believe that this won't happen, and if it does then I'll post a picture of me eating my hat. Sarge, if Oduya gets traded then you're taking Neids from me in our drinking game.

yep, they play in the other division, and it's a relatively short drive. might as well kill two birds with one stone.

I am hoping I wake up tomorrow and see the deal announced. The past 2 days has been madness!

Well...I can't wait for SOME sort of explanation. I have no idea if it's a trade or what. But OY this is stressing me out...

If the thrash had scouts there, wouldn't you want to play eckford and try to showcase him? or would he be scratched because a pmd would be involved in a potential trade (oduya) and eckford would replace him? who the hell would you go to watch play tonight? sestito probably had the best game out of all of them, palmeiri couldnt even keep his feet tonight

You think Kovalchuk would put a lot more people in the seats?

For as good as Kovalchuk is he isn't that kind of star IMO. Don't get me wrong he is up there as one of the top players in the league but he never got the hype that Crosby, Ovechkin, and other guys who came up post lockout got. If you are a hockey fan you obviously know Kovalchuk. If you are not and are a very casual fan I'm not so sure.

OK guys here is what I was just told by a NHL player. The Devils will be the team getting him and the package will be centered around Niclas Bergfors John Oduya ,Nick Palmieri and a number 1 is what he said he heard.

Supposedly this Dagoon guy owns a bar that a lot of NHL players go to or something. Not posting this because I think it has any weight, but more because it's an interesting deal. Don't think it would work, Bergy isn't enough of an established player to me.

I mean I'm a hockey fan and I think I'd go to more games this season....the team is really good right now, even though they are in a slump, this could be a good year to go for it.

Agree completely. I think it may increase attendance slightly as the hardcore fans would like to go see Kovalchuk. But he isn't the kind of name that would get the casual sports fans to go flock to The Rock....
