Yah had a feeling when they inked Hossa today that he wouldn't be coming back to Chicago.

Eklund's predictions at 8:50am ET were ALL wrong.
hockeybuzz.com/Are-You-Ready--Some-Predictions-for-Today
* Beauchemin to either Montreal or Tampa
* Ohlund to LA, NJ, or Anaheim (or maybe a real surprise)
* Saku Koivu to Anaheim
* Knuble will re-sign with Philly
* Hossa will be a domino after Heatley decides if he wants to go to Edmonton or NY
* Martin Biron will sign with Avalanche or Oilers
* Cammalleri will sign with Buffalo, Nashville or Toronto
* The Sedins will sign in Montreal
* Komisarek will sign in NJ or the New York Islanders, but don't rule out a return to the Habs.
* The Hawks will attempt to move Huet and bring back Bulin
* Havlat will not be signed today, but will likely end up back in Chicago
* The Rangers will attempt to spend their money. Although I dont see it happening, expect Vinny rumors if Heatley goes to Edmonton.
* The Thrashers will make a few really solid signings, that no one will expect.
* The Wild will get in on Hossa and make another play for Heatley (and possibly Vinny)
* The Islanders will make a play for a major player as well. if not Komisarek, maybe Ohlund
* Kaberle to Boston for Kessel will be revisited

Wow, I figured he would do a little better than that.. What a jackass, he should address that on the website on how horrible his picks were, with all his inside information.

Hawks signed John Madden last night from New Jersey. Great signing, IMO because he's still very quietly effective, and it's only for one year. The more I think about our potential lines, the more I like it...

No doubt Chicago will score a lot of goals. The issue may be letting the other team score more.

I think Huet will be ok, but a player to watch is Antti Niemi. He was good in Finland, and has looked good since making the jump to the North American game. He's battling Corey Crawford for the backup role, but I think he'll win. He's going to be a starter someday, and it may be later this season if Huet can't prove himself.

Tallon is doing a good job in making people believe that he's really behind Huet, and that he wasn't trying to trade him. I'm not buying. If that were the case, why did he make Khabibulin the starter in the playoffs when he knew that Khabi was 95% gone at the end of the year?

Gotta believe they'd be asking for more than that. Makes ya think though. I dunno if I could pull the trigger though. Maybe swap Pietrangelo out and throw in Cole or Fairchild.

LA Kings just took Scuderi for 4 years, $13.6 million. WOW. They just dropped a ton of money for him- man oh man.

Canucks sign Mikael Samuelsson. 3 years/$7.5 million.
At least someone on the nucks has a cup ring.

Is anyone else a little surprised at the Red Wings' seemingly apathetic attitude towards retaining many of their players? So far they've lost Samuelsson, Hossa, Conklin and Kopecky. Is it strictly salary cap issues? Are they thinking that the young guys like Helm and Abdulkader will fill the voids, what's going on?

Not that the thought of a far less deep Red Wings team next season bothers me for a second. :grin: :detsucks:
