News and Comments Thread



With the trade deadline upcoming on Monday, this weekend could be a busy one in terms of general NHL movement. Already this morning a whole slew of waiver wire transactions have taken place:

– Marcos Sturm was claimed by WAS

– Nick Boynton was claimed by PHI

– Craig Rivet was claimed by CBJ

– Ty Conklin (?) and Curtis McElhinney were placed on waivers.

Feel free to discuss, speculate, etc.

Other notes:

– I will be appearing on Nations Radio with Lowetide this afternoon at about 12:30. You can listen at the TEAM 1260’s website here.

– Myself and ON contrbiutor Jonathan Willis will be hosting a Nations-wide trade deadline day live chat on Monday. Writers from all of the various Nations sites will appear during the day. We plan to kick things off at 10am MST, although I could be convinced to start things earlier if the morning gets busy.

Jonathan and I will add instant updates and analysis to any trades that occur. Feel free to drop by to talk Flames or the NHL in general. 

– I am also the Flames representative for Puck Daddy Radio this Monday. If Calgary makes a move, expect to hear denouncing it lauding it talking about it there.
