That's right folks, you heard the Hatcher deal here first.



Booo... Hatcher wears panties. In a related story, so does Modano. And Beckham I guess.

I don't know what to say, except that I'm totally shocked.


Of course you can move to Colorado, Michael, LOL.

Still, I can't help but think that Lacroix's got something sneaky up his sleeve and that all is not as cool as it appears. I wonder if it has something to with certain goalies being available...for trade.

Wise thinking, AvsGirl...you should be a GM! Some of Lacroix's ruthless thinking is rubbing off on you. That's very good point. Remember we talked about how Detroit would never trade Joseph to Colorado? Well, now Detroit has a very pressing need since Fedorov made the statement he won't be back. This puts Lacroix in a postion of power, since he has Kariya and Salanne as assets - two assets Detroit would love to own. Should be very interesting...

I could be a GM.

Actually, I wasn't even thinking of a deal with Detroit, although that is an interesting possibility. Who was it who floated the theory (was it cujo himself?) that Joesph could sign with an Eastern team, would would then trade him to Colorado? That's what I was picturing. But a deal with Detroit--could they finally do it? (I've always been of the opinion Holland would gladly deal with the Avs and that it's Lacroix who's being the dork, but I don't really know much about Red Wings management.)

I don't see Lacroix trading the big fish he just landed--even now, he's chuckling over how he thinks he "tricked" the other GM's. I think he would trade some young Avs, like usually does...I just don't like to think who. Call me attached.

Booo...

This changes my friendly feelings towards the Red Wings.

I can't believe TSN actually said the Avs were courting Hatcher. A deal with Detroit is more likely!

AvsGirl, yeah, that's a good point. Upon thinking further, there is no way the Avs would trade Kariya or Selanne to Detroit or anyone else. They could perhaps trade Hejduk or Tanguay for Cujo (fulfilling needs for both teams), perhaps involving younger players too...but I agree: it would more likely end up being a 3 way deal with some other team.

Yep.

The only way he's going to the Avalanche is through another team. Bitter rivals don't trade with each other. Unless out of sheer desperation, and right now Pierre is holding all the cards. Watch Out.

The Annual Cujo Sweepstakes has begun.

Yay!!!

If they traded Hejduk...that would be lunacy! Sheer lunacy!

I don't want to see Tanguay traded either, I think it would be a big mistake. I'd deal Reinprecht, but I think everyone knows he's not all he is hyped to be.

Hopefully, no defensemen...

I hate thinking about trades. It's stressful being an Avs fan.

That already happened this morning in a threesome trade:

To Buffalo: Chris Drury, Steve Begin

To Calgary: Steve Reinprecht, Rhett Warrener

To Colorado: Buffalo's 1st Round Pick from 2002.

Why did you trade Drury Mr. Button? Even as a non-Flames fan I want to throw something at you.

The Avalanche should update their website if they make trades! Reinprecht, wow.

Poor Drury. What is Calgary thinking? He's such a good player in the clutch. But he is a really weird guy, so maybe that's why he's getting bounced around.

Brian Burke is such a moron...well, not all the time, but this is one of the times he is. He's *so* full of sour grapes for not getting Kariya, so he called him disloyal, etc, for signing only a 1 year deal with Colorado after Anaheim paid him so handsomely for so many years, and treated him so well. Like Brian Burke wouldn't have signed Paul Kariya for 1.2 million???? And like Pierre Lacroix didn't jump at the same deal? Yeah, right. It's clearly a deal that makes sense for both parties. Burke is pissed cause he left a message for Paul 2 days ago, and Baizley (his agent) called back saying he was instructed to call Colorado...and the deal soon done. Want to see some disloyalty, Brian? Take a look at what you're doing with Trent Klatt.

Yes, but I still blame him for everything. I'm used to saying bad job Button. Guess I'll have to get used to a new name... bad job [insert next GM].

Sutter is the interim-GM I believe, but for all intents and purposes it's still Button's regime... as his crap is still backing up the system.
