I wouldn't be so PO'd about it, I mean Guerin is a good player sure but he's 38 years old so he can't have much left in the tank. It was either this or keep him and lose him to retirement and get nothing in return. I think this was a smart move by the Isles with an eye on their future.

I wish I could have been here for all the "excitement" (or as TSN seems to think, the greatest day of the year in sports - they don't even have this much coverage for the Stanley Cup Final ) but I was working until half an hour past deadline time.

You didn't miss much - worst trade deadline day ever

That last "trade" by the Leafs perplexes me:

G Olaf Kolzig
D Jamie Heward
D Andy Rogers
2009 4th Rd. Pick

for

D Richard Petiot

I've never heard of this Petoit guy we traded, was he good? Also Kolzig has an injury and is out for the rest of his season - then his contract expires and Heward is sidelined indefinitely with a concussion, I don't get it...

The only way I can rationalize it, is that NHL GMs are starting to make trades the same way that the NBA does.

With the salary cap most definitely going down next year, Tampa Bay needed to get players off their books. So Toronto acquired an expiring contract, along with other players to help Tampa out. The Leafs can now put Kolzig on long term disability and have it not count against the cap. In the meantime, Burke stockpiles another draft pick.

Wouldn't it be amazing if the Red Wings meet the Canadiens in the Stanley Cup final? Then April and I could get married in June, as planned, and we could hold the reception at the Joe or maybe at the Bell Centre.

Details to follow...

I was going to make you an usher, but not anymore!

How does that make you feel? Maybe next time you'll think twice about trying to crush other people's hopes and dreams.

Omg, baby, that would be AWESOME!!!!!!!

You're so good to me, I swear it. Even though we've never met or anything and you gaveme a hard time about sending me your picture and all.

We could totally have a red, white and blue theme - it'd be so perfect, Canadiens colours (hehe, look what I did there!) and because I'm American and all. Omg!!!

I'm not pissed off about the trade, I'm just pissed off because every year it seems that the Isles get a bunch of new faces and then by the end of the season they trade a lot of them away. Its been rumored that Coach Gordon has been having some trouble with the vets, so I wonder what his status will be after the season.

Canadiens fired Guy Carbonneau. I'm surprised by the timing.

I'm beyond shocked - thought it would happen in the summer if they fared poorly in the remaining weeks.
