Just a quick note here..
I read in Heika’s Blog that there’s a rumor of trade talks between our Stars and Tampa Bay about Brad Richards. The gist seems to be that the trade would most likely include our dear Smitty. In my non-expert, but nonetheless emphatic opinion, HECK NO! Not only do I just really like Smitty as a person, but he’s an amazing goaltender that we need to keep for now with Marty. As much as I loved Tugger, he was a pretty sorry backup when Marty was injured/suspended for multiple games, which is exactly why Mike is needed here in Dallas; we need someone who can take the reins in the crease if something goes horribly wrong. And we certianly don’t need another center…especially one being paid $7.8 million a year! I certianly hope our GM duo can realize that. Just because there’s a trade deadline doesn’t mean you have to make a trade. As the infamous “they” say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and I don’t think the team’s broken…but I wouldn’t complain having Hossa around!
