Report: No deal yet for Wild's Zidlicky

http://www.nhl.com/i...ost.htm?id=6457

"Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher on Wednesday told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the club has not asked defenseman Marek Zidlicky to waive his no-trade clause for any specific trade. The newspaper, along with TSN, reported earlier Wednesday morning that Zidlicky had waived his no-trade clause so the Wild could send him to the New Jersey Devils. "I haven't asked Zid to waive his no-trade for any specific trade," Fletcher told the newspaper's Mike Russo. "I haven't called him and said anything's close. I can tell you for sure I'm planning on talking to other teams. We haven't traded Zid, we haven't made the decision to trade Zid at this point. I have not formally asked him to do anything because at this point I honestly don't have anything to take to him, I don't have anything for him to say yes or no to."



And the best part:


The Devils certainly could use a player with Zidlicky's skill set. While he doesn't have any goals this season, 42 of the 60 he's scored in his eight NHL seasons have been on the power play. In the absence of Henrik Tallinder and Adam Larsson, the Devils' power play has slipped to 17th in the NHL at 17.0 percent.

Posted Image This writer has never followed the Devils. Doesn't get much more embarrassing than that now that the Devils PP is hotter than ever since those two have been out and has RISEN to 17th in the NHL.

ben00rs: Zidlicky is 35, has a year left on his contract, and is a healthy scratch in Minnesota while Minnesota slides down to the bottom of the standings, and everyone knows he wants out. If the Devils give up anyone decent for him, it's a huge mistake. If anyone gives up anything decent for him, it's a huge mistake.

If foster was a part of the deal and a draft pick (2nd) then why not? but the wild are probably looking for "a better than foster player"

Exactly. The Wild can pretend that they have all of the leverage and bargaining power here, but the fact remains that Zidlicky has a full no trade clause for the rest of this season and, thus far, he is only willing to go to the Devils. They can work out all the deals the want with the Rangers, Flyers, Bruins, etc., but he can still veto all of them.

I highly doubt the Wild want to keep a player on their roster that has no desire to be there and calls out the coach through the media. Lous has the upper hand in these negotiations because, at the end of the day, if he stays in Minnesota or is traded somewhere else, is it really that big of a deal? It's not like we're talking about Ryan Suter of Shea Weber here.

seriously...let him wait it out then its not pressing but i think he's an upgrade over foster....so why not do foster and a 4th or 3rd for him....if he plays well enough we might be able to trade him after we win the cup this year for our 4th back

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Who is this guy and who wants to be the one to tell him that the NY Post article is speculation and not to use the information as fact in his blog... also it he's going to use a quote from Patrik Elias, he should cite and give credit to TG or Chere or whichever actual journalist was in the locker room talking to Patty.

I hate it when "bloggers" do this. This is why the NHL and Lou especially has problems with giving websites credentials. They already try to cheapen and steal work from the actual journalists.

Almost 100% of the stuff this guy puts in his blog is information he reads from TG or Chere. Good job, you can read the internet and then type what you read again.

Is this also the person pretending to be Chico on Facebook? Oh boy.
