Look for updates all day. I’ll be updating in the morning and Sarah will be taking over early afternoon.
1:30 am – After reading this very depressing article I’m going to bed. Just a little more than 12 hours until all is said and done. Hulljack – please don’t make this trade. I will hate both of you for a very very long time.
8:16 am – Phew, no news about the possible trade from overnight. I don’t think I’d let myself sleep again if it happened while I was blissfully sleeping away. Not much happened overnight. The signing of Mike Comrie definitely takes him off the market, but there weren’t many rumors about him so I don’t think this signing is disappointing anyone.
It amuses me that, if Hossa gets traded to the Habs, he’ll be playing against Atlanta tonight. I don’t think I’d be so keen on facing my former team (of about 5 hours ago).
10:12 am – Still no news about our Stars. There are rumors that Columbus is trying to beef up their offer for Richards… Good luck guys! Please offer more than what we’re offering. I’m not ready for our tree-like goalie to leave yet.
Latest news: Leafs trade Belak to Panthers for a 5th round pick in 2008. It’s really not overly exciting. The Leafs are out one enforcer, but that’s what they have Darcy Tucker for, right?
10:28 am – TSN is just reporting that the Sharks acquired Brian Campbell from the Sabres. We all know the Sharks needed another defenseman, but will this be enough? TSN thinks it will, but I’m not sure if I agree. They’re reporting now that Buffalo got Steve Bernier and a first round draft pick in return. This trade seems like a plus for Stars fans because San Jose will be without a first round pick this year.. That helps us since Dougy traded away all of our first round picks for the rest of eternity.
10:44 am – NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. All I see at the top of TSN is Brad Richards goes to Stars. Details are coming soon. I want to cry.
HULLJACK I HATE YOU! We no longer have Smitty, Jussi, or Jeffy. You guys lose! Bring back Dougy
