Icy Arms Race Begins

  • By Mac

MacI figured I would attempt to cure my draft fever, at least a bit. So I figured, more Kate Beckensale?

Always a good plan, but I figured no… lets go to the Ice.

Kate Ice











Sorry, couldn’t help it!   ………….Ice Hockey, I meant!

The shorten season has led higher tension during the season. I saw somewhere that fighting was way up. Every team had a real shot at a playoff spot, well maybe not every team.

And now that the dust has settled from teams sprinting out of the gate we can clearly see some Cup Contenders.

Which leads us to the next 8 days… The Cold War, teams are now arming up.

Usually we have a little time, the calm before the storm.

A deal took place with the Ducks and Corey Perry, taking him off the market.

….Then Pittsburgh

Brandon Morrow to Pittsburgh…

GM’s all around the NHL shook their heads, like a boyfriend at a twilight movie, in disgust.

Teams will answer…

Here are some quick thoughts; obviously more players are in play. But we have to start somewhere!

Marian Gaborik – New York Rangers
He’s now the top winger on the market and the Rangers seam over him…
If I have to guess now: Detroit

Jaromir Jagr – Dallas
It’s funny, because no one wanted him earlier, but with his strong player you could get him cheap.
If I have to guess now: Montreal

Mike Ribeiro – Washington
He’s been very strong in Washington, but without a contract next year he could be moved… I’m thinking Vancouver.
If I have to guess now: Vancouver

Jonathan Bernier – LA
The kings need scoring… again, and they already like trading with the Devils!
If I have to guess now: New Jersey

David Clarkson – New Jersey
He likely won’t walk away like Parise,
If I have to guess now: LA

Steve Ott – Buffalo
Interesting Player, strong young center
If I have to guess now:

R.J. Umberger – Columbus
A bit pricy, but a good 2 way player for a contending team.
If I have to guess now: Vancouver

Jarome Iginla – Calgary
Who wouldn’t want the talented Winger?
If I have to guess now: LA

Martin St.Louis – Tampa Bay
Could happen, but I doubt it.
If I have to guess nwo: Tampa Bay

Keith Yandle – Phoenix
I’m not sure why Phoenix is in such a hurry to move him.
If I have to guess now: Edmonton

Sam Gagner – Edmonton
They have to trade someone for Yandle!
If I have to guess now: Phoenix

Ryane Clowe – SJ
No contract means he could be on the move.
If I have to guess now: Philadelphia

Dan Boyle – SJ
A power play quarterback
If I have to guess now: Chicago

Daniel Alfredsson, Senators
I love Alfredsson, serious man crush action going on here.
If I have to guess now: Ottawa

Teams better get moving… the clock is ticking before the war.
