Zubov anyone?

I think today's focus is goaltending. Until that situation is resolved I don't expect us to make a play for any d-men.

Their GM staff is big enough. They can handle multiple tracks at once.

I agree though that a backup goalie is muy importante.

That would be the best news of the day for me. Eklund is saying he's an E3 to CBJ...I'll (Frank) beat someone if that happens, especially considering that I now live about an hour from Columbus (Cincinnati)

I take Dreger's word over Eklund's any day of the week.

Wait a minute...I re-read it and realized that you said Hossa and not Havlat. :x :cry:

Strickland reporting we're close with Conklin. Between us and another team. Annoucement soon...

On a lesser note, Hossa to Chicago appears to be a done deal.

Because Havlat is better than the two time loser.

Not to mention, we have the most overrated defenseman in the game on a huge cap hit, Huet and his immovable contract, and still have to re-sign Toews, Kane, Seabrook, and Keith. How does Hossa fit into that?

Havlat must have a deal in place in LA or at the very least leaning that way. That or the Hawks felt they couldn't pass up an chance at Hossa. Interesting to see length/cost...
