Capital’s Trade analysis

00ppfront Since there’s not much in the way of big names being traded today, I’m left to talk about the questionable moves that the Caps have made today. 7th Round draft pick to the Hurricanes for Scott Walker. Walker will add some grit and some depth, but the guy gets hurt when the wind blows too hard. Sure the Caps only gave up a 7th roun [...]

Wolski for Mueller analysis

00ppfront The Colorado Avalanche have traded Wojtek Wolski to the Phoenix Coyotes for Peter Mueller and Kevin Porter. Mueller had really fallen out of favor with Phoenix management lately with an attitude that seemed to say, “I’m not really sure I want to play hockey”  Had he not had to clear waivers, he surely would have been sent do [...]

Aaron Ward to the Ducks

00ppfront The Ducks pick up some depth on the blue line while Carolina unloads the remaining salary of a soon to be UFA. Ward’s minutes will be replaced by Alexandre Picard who the Canes picked up from Ottawa in the Matt Cullen deal. Carolina also acquires goaltender Justin Pogge who, at one time, was the goaltender of the future for the Maple Le [...]

Seidenberg to Boston

00ppfront Okay, so Boston replaces Derek Morris at a slightly lower cap hit possibly opening up some room for another deal later today. Seidenberg will definitely be an upgrade at the point on the PP, and Florida continues to ship out any healthy bodies that they can get a return for.

This would be hillarious

00ppfront Tell me they shouldn’t be playing this on the scoreboard every time he scores a goal  

Other trades so far with analysis

00ppfront Nashville aquires Denis Grebeshkov from Edmonton for a 2nd Round Pick: Nashville acquires a good puck moving defenseman to go along with Ryan Suter and Shea Weber.  It will probably lessen the blow of losing Dan Hamhuis.  Grebeshkov is an RFA after the season, and there was no way Edmonton was bringing him back so a 2nd round pick was probabl [...]

00ppfront Happy Trade Deadline Day to everyone in Hockeyland.  Hopefully, one of these days, this will be a national holiday both here and in Canada, but until that time, I’ll be here analysing the days deals. First up: Toronto sends Alexei Ponikarovsky to the Penguins for Luca Caputi and Martin Skoula Ray Shero continues his yearly shopping trip [...]

Pens Win First Game Back: Top Sabres 3-2

2010-03-02 20.32.07 Wow, it felt good to be back at the old Igloo after the Olympic break.  It felt like I hadn’t watched NHL hockey in months.  (No knock on the Olympics intended) The good news is the Pens looked pretty good in their first game back.  The team really seemed to play consistently for that elusive “60 minutes”.  Now, that is not to say they played [...]

Pens Trade Martin Skoula & Luca Caputi to Toronto for Alexei Ponakarovsky

00ppfront The Penguins picked up a big 6’4″ scoring winger from Toronto Alexei Ponakarovsky tonight for their 8th in line defenseman Martin Skoula who did not dress most of the season and 4th round prospect Luca Caputi.  We will have more on this later.
