Fearless Predictions


The Nation sites have been so busy today that I haven’t even been able to login until just now.  The fan passion for this site has been amazing for everyone here, and today was another demonstration of that.  Anyways, I just got this email from a friend and I thought everyone deserved to see it.

Eklund’s Morning Predictions

* There will be less than 15 signings on the first day due to cap restrictions, but there will be several trade rumors and at least 3 trades that make signings happen…

* 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.

Remarkable, yes?
